Gone are the days when basic brown was the preferred hair color for cooler weather. If the peak autumn foliage has you ready for a colorful change, check out our collection of Unicorn Hair Full Coverage semi-permanent hair dyes in rich, rustic tones and avant-garde shades. These deep, moody shades are sure to inspire your next dark hair look.
Shades of Scarlet
Warm, fiery red is the boldest hue on autumn’s color wheel. Deeper, almost chocolatey shades with plum, cherry cola, and maroon overtones are reminiscent of red leaves on maple trees during fall. These sultry, reddish-brown shades are a must for brunettes with light- to medium-brown locks. For those who don’t want to commit to a brighter auburn hue, these deeper, fall-inspired hair colors offer a subtle, yet noticeable update to brown tresses. Chocolate Cherry, Mystic Rose, and Chestnut are our hair dye picks for the burgundy to maroon shade range.
Earthy, Golden Brown
Rich caramels and maple browns are the pumpkin spice latte of fall hair colors. These familiar, approachable shades range from light to medium brown, with antique gold to soft orange undertones. Use these toasty tones as face-framing highlights to add warmth to your complexion and depth and dimension to your natural dark blonde to medium-brown hair color. Butterscotch is the perfect warm ginger hue to help you embrace this fall hair color trend.
Copper is the perfect hair color for blondes and redheads who want to celebrate pumpkin season. Reminiscent of a warm sunset, the reddish-brown shade features muted yellow to burnt orange undertones.
With its gold and copper undertones, spiced blonde adds richness and depth to naturally light or bleached tresses.
Muted copper is an earthy, brick-red shade that looks flattering on individuals with dark blonde, light red, and medium brown manes.
To find the perfect copper hue for you, let eye color guide your decisions. The darker your eye color, the darker shade of copper to try. If you have light hair and eyes, for instance, embrace the redder end of the copper spectrum. For strawberry blonde with a twist, try Strawberry Jam, a muted pink-red, or Neon Peach, a vibrant, fleshy orange shade.
Fully Saturated Fantasy Shades
Beyond the rustic, earthy tones we gravitate towards in the fall, there are plenty of other rich colors that evoke the season. Try color-blocked bangs in alternating evergreen and cornflower sections. Meadow is a deep green hair dye that is a reminder of autumn’s harvest, while Swamp Queen is a grungy green that’s reminiscent of pine. Dirty Mermaid, a seafoam green, and Anime, a candy blue hair dye, are both cooler tones that mimic the moodiness of autumn’s pale sky. To bring out the blue tones in these shades, use the Bleach Party Lightening Kit to lighten your natural strands before application.
Purple is often an overlooked shade on the autumn color wheel, but it has a strong presence in the season’s bounty. Turnips, beets, eggplant, and radishes all feature variations of this deep, royal hue. If you have brown or black locks, use Genie purple hair dye to add chunky highlights to your face-framing layers. The rich violet helps make a darker mane appear thicker and fuller by concealing grown-out roots and creating an eye-catching contrast. Concentrate highlights around the face to make a fuller shape appear slimmer and more sculpted.
