Pumpkin spice everything, multiple layers, and the changing colors of the leaves make fall the most Instagram-able time of the year. It’s also back-to-school season for students, parents, and educators, which means it’s the perfect time to switch up your look. In this week’s blog, our Cary hair colorist explains how caramel, cinnamon, and gold can be worn in your hair just as well as your decorations!

Copper Red

Zendaya was early to the party this year when she debuted her new red locks for the Spider-Man: Far From Home press tour. The gorgeous copper tones are perfect for fall and will let everyone know you’re in love with the season! If you’re ready to go red, stop by our Cary hair salon to make it happen.

Caramel Highlights

It’s in your latte, in your pumpkin-shaped desk bowl, and on your festival candy apple. Now, caramel can be part of your hair, too. Caramel highlights, especially caramel balayage, is an easy way to give your hair more volume and gloss, add dimension, and brighten up your look with a warm glow.

Chocolate Shades

If you want a big change, but you’re a little less adventurous, chocolate is a safe, mature choice that’s very popular right now. It’s the perfect shade if you want to go darker, but aren’t ready for black hair just yet, and since Halloween is about chocolate, you won’t be out-of-theme!

Cinnamon Ombre

Caramel isn’t the only option for fall-themed balayage and highlights. A few pops of cinnamon color here and there can also brighten up your face for the new, chilly season. As with caramel highlights, cinnamon ombre adds dimension to make hair look fuller and shinier. That’s

Gold Balayage

“Nature’s first green is gold, her hardest hue to hold.” You can pay homage to the Robert Frost poem and celebrate the season with soft, golden balayage. Unlike icy blonde you might prefer for winter, we recommend a softer, more wearable honey shade that falls on the blonde spectrum, but isn’t drastic. The balayage technique of soft, natural-looking highlights can help bring out the gold in a beautiful, understated way.
