Transition Your Hair Color Into Fall With Highlights

Fall is not the time to hunker down and give into the cooler temperatures by forgetting about your hair. It’s actually the time to give your strands an unexpectedly warm refresh. Mixing some blonde and caramel tones into your base color will brighten up your look in a subtle way. Think just the right amount of creamer in your coffee and, since it’s fall, make it a pumpkin spice latte.

    French vanilla

    Not to be mistaken for the other vanilla further down, this french vanilla color is a bit warmer and pulls more golden. Perfect for frolicking around in a pumpkin patch.

    This before and after took 2 sessions to achieve and about 12 hours of hard work. This was previously colored hair with box color. Everyones hair is different and the results will vary from person to person! In this case we got pretty lucky that her hair still maintained its integrity and length and it is remarkable that this only took 2 sessions. Typically these things take much longer, and sometimes are truly just not possible depending on many factors, including hair type, hairs history, and your hair budget! With that being said, I LOVE big before and afters! It’s such rewarding work! DM me if you have any questions!

    Hot chocolate

    It wouldn’t be fall without hot chocolate so why not have hair to match? Highlights make deep, brown hair look even richer.
