BEAUTY | How To Transition Your Hair Color From Summer To Fall Like A Pro

Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall’, F.Scott Fitzergeral once said. The first step towards reinvention? Changing up your hair color, of course. ‘It’s all about making (hair) richer, warmer, or color, as well as getting rid of unwanted tones from the sun and elements’, says colorist Aura Friedman, who suggests cleansing hair with Malibu C Hard Water Wellness Shampoo to undo the damage of fade-inducing sunlight, chlorine, and seawater. Once strands are detoxed, you can recalibrate your choice shade, she says.

Here, the most sough-after pros weight in on how to tweak your hair color come autumn.


For blondes, there’s no time like fall to embrace warmth. Why? Because ‘ashy and beige shades wash out your complexion’, explains Rita Hazan, the woman behind Beyonce’s blanched lengths. Meche Salon’s Matt Rez agrees; for glowing color with a graceful grow out, he first creates dimension with butterscotch lowlights, then bolsters highlights with a golden gloss, he says.


Before lightening up, a brunette must go darker. ‘Usually brunettes get brassy in the summer so go one or two shades darker with your single process to counteract any unwanted orange or red tones’, says Hazan. For movement and pop, Rez likes to paint on soft ribbons of honey, highlights, especially around the face.


Whether washed-out ginger or eye-popping vermillion, avoid cool undertones. ‘Warmer tones, like auburn, tend to be more flattering’, explains Hazan, who is partial to a solid color for redheads. To maintain vividness, the stylist’s three minute in – shower Ultimate Shine Gloss will protect color while giving it an extra boost. If you do want the balayage treatment, tone highlights with a copper or strawberry hue, adds Rez.


When the temperatures begin to drop, nothing suits jet-black hair like a cool-girl violet or a red tint achieved with gloss. But if it’s simply more dimension you desire, deep cinnamon baby-highlights are key: ‘They add sparkle when the hair moves’.
