It pays to be patient when it comes to fall hair color. Even if it's been six months since your last appointment, it's better to score your dream shade mid-September than regret premature lowlights in August. In fact, if you've been holding out until now, you're actually golden.

That's because the latest hair-color trends are all rooted in fresh tones applied as beautifully-blended balayage — as in, subtle, hand-painted color that requires minimal upkeep, is universally flattering, and is particularly easy to infuse into grown-out summer highlights or on virgin hair.

From honey gold and chocolate chai to a creamy blonde and smoky cocoa, scroll through our slideshow to find the trending looks to ask for at your upcoming (safely socially-distant) salon appointment.
