Copper Hair: How to Rock the Hottest Fall Hair Color

Fall’s in the air — the sights, the sounds, the smells…and perhaps most obvious of all: the colors. This includes the hottest new hair color for fall: copper! Summer’s settling into the rearview, but that doesn’t mean that the dazzle and glam of warm weather has to give way to dreary and dull, at least not when it comes to hair color. Copper is a lively shade that’s exciting, fun and oh-so on-trend. If you’re ready to rock the hottest fall hair color for the season, Prose has your back with a brief rundown on how to make copper locks your signature look as we head into the closing stretch of 2023.

    A Little Bit Brunette, A Little Bit Caramel

    Copper hair color is a decadent mix of two perfect fall shades: brunette or chocolate and caramel. Think of the warm hues you’d see in a bottle of fine whiskey or bourbon, and you’re picturing copper color at its most glorious. These tones come together to give your hair a bold, rich look that looks great when it’s fresh but continues to look good as it begins to grow out. Dramatic in much the same way as an icy or platinum blonde, copper is a hair color that nearly anyone can rock, no matter your complexion or natural hair shade.

    Is Copper Hair Color for You?

    There are so many different variations of copper when it comes to hair color that it’s nearly impossible to not be able to find one that looks great for you. Also referred to as “cowgirl copper,” this hair color is perfect for natural brunettes and spicy redheads because the color meshes well with the pigments in both brunette and red hair. If your locks are lighter, you can still wear this glorious fall color with a little extra effort and the right hair care products.

    There are other takes on copper hair color for fall too. “Bropper” is one of them, blending the spicy beauty of copper with warm brown. The result is a vibrantly robust shade that can be a great option for dark hair because you don’t need to lift your current base color prior to applying a bropper shade. Warm sienna is another choice that’s not as “coppery” as other shades but still gives you a hint of copper and shakes up your look.

    Not ready to go full-on copper? That’s okay too. Rust highlights are totally in for fall 2023, letting you experience a new look without the full commitment of a total color job. Ideal for complementing your existing color, rust highlights get you in on the copper trend while adding dimension and depth to your hair. The result is an intriguing color that turns heads and gives you a fresh, ready-for-hayrides-and-bonfires look.
