That's the suntanned blonde shade which can still brighten the gloomy weather on Fall/Winter days.

Honey Blonde hair

If you want to stick to classics, honey-hair would be a nice choice. Honey-blonde hair is the ultimate in-between shade for brunettes and sun-kissed blondes. The honey shade lifts the warmth to your blonde color without looking too severe. With both blonde and brunette tones, the honey blonde shades can complement different skin tones by making it lighter or darker. There will be a honey hue for you and everyone.

Face-framing Highlights hair

Face-framing Highlights

Also referred to as money piece, face-framing highlights is a coloring technique that brings out the attractive features of your visage and maintains summer brightness. It is a super-easy way to look light and bright without the hours of upkeep in salons. Coupled with a nice melted root, face-framing highlights can greatly reduce the cost of salon visits.

Chunk Highlights hair

Chunk Highlights

As you are thinking the thick strips of your youth are gone, chunk highlights, which were a boom in the 90s, return even stronger as a hot hair color trend in 2020. Creating a proper space between the steaks adds dimension and vivaciousness to your base color. If your hair is thin, you can choose thinner highlights especially when your base color is light. However, if you have thick locks, play with chunkier highlights to get a fuller look.

Deep Roots hair

Deep Roots

With some of the salons still closed and some running in 50% capacity, it's hard to snag an appointment. Instead of seeing your hairstylists every month for the newly grown hair, you can simply turn the things to be in your favor. The well maintained deep roots can look chic as hell when it is high-contrasting and allows you to enjoy the grow-out.

Cold Brew hair

Cold Brew

When fall comes, you might order an extra-hot macchiato; however, cold brew can be the one that carries you throughout the year. First spotted as the work of colorist Eric Vaughn, this multidimensional brown tone mimics the beautiful color blends that occur when you mix coffee with a splash of milk and ice. Mingled with a series of dimensional dark brunette colors with warm highlights, cold brew pops up on Instagram and cross the mind of all coffee lovers. It is a must-try color when fall hits.

Cinnamon Chocolate hair

Cinnamon Chocolate

The trick to nailing this Fall/Winter is the clever combination of warm auburn tints and dark brunette colors. These two colors meet at one point, and it's cinnamon. Nothing can beat Cinnamon when it comes to warm tones. Cinnamon Chocolate color represents a dark chocolate color with hints of warm cinnamon red that can break the dull muted dark brown shade and add mysterious vibes.

Golden Brunette hair

Golden Brunette

Golden brunette color is a blend of medium brunette shade and light golden blonde that borders on blonde and brown. It's an easy way to light up dark to medium brown or darken naturally the blonde shades. Just picturing the color in your mind can remind you of sunshine and captivation sunset and get you a warming feeling. It is an amazing glow.

Rich Red hair

Rich Red

From natural strawberry red to copper to rich auburn, wine, and bright red ruby tones, red is always a great trend and a head-turning choice for fall because it complements many skin tones. Today, I am talking about rich red or scarlet red. This scarlet hue is the perfect marriage of summer brightness and winter richness and it can commend your audacious and edgy personality. Fire up your hair to lighten up the weather and your life. Because of YOLO, WOLO.

Ginger Red hair

Ginger Red

Red tones are on the top list to brighten up and give warmth in Fall/Winter. If you are scared to experiment with bright red but cannot let go of this charming shade, ginger red would be your best choice. Ginger red color is a spicy, light or medium reddish brown tone that is much more natural-looking and perfect for a touch bold. Ask for a dark root that can keep the color low-maintenance and save your cost. Be spicy, be bold, and be shiny.

Soft Black hair

Soft Black

Black is a timeless chic. When brunette and balayage hit the hair world, three or even four different hues mixed becomes the mainstream trend. This winter, a better choice would be going in the opposite direction with a solid color and with no highlights. Black color can also get you in the mood for the cool weather. Winter is the season celebrating natural hair. The soft black tone is not overly pigmented and doesn't look too inky. Do the same choice with models on the runway and be the coolest but not aggressive girl this Fall/Winter.

After reading all these charming colors, are you ready to give a shot? Choices are various. It's time to refresh yourself and surprise everyone with a glamorous appearance. You may go to the salons to let your hairstylist do the magic or you can simply choose a wig or some hairpieces like toppers and extensions with the colors you love if you prefer not to do any harm to your bio hair. Whatever color you choose, make sure to regularly give the hair gloss treatment to make it shine and glow. That would greatly enhance your charm and beauty!
