Forget traditional autumnal hair colors for fall, this year we're feeling a little cooler, with a whole range of different neutral, aka nude hair colors to play with. Take a look at these eight inspirations!
What is nude/neutral hair color?
Nude hair color has exactly the right blend of cool and warm undertones to bring it perfectly into the middle of the color spectrum. The aim is for your color to look completely natural while being subtly flattering to all skin tones. It's a win-win no matter what your natural undertones.
8 nude hair colors for fall:
Cocoa and honey
A nude shade can be created through the expert application of two contrasting colors, not necessarily one all-over shade. This means your existing color can easily be updated into a nude look. Cocoa, for example, is a cool-toned brunette shade that can be brought into neutral/nude territory with warm dark honey highlights.
Chocolate, caramel ends
Another color combination that gives a great hair color for fall (and sounds good enough to eat!) is dark chocolate with caramel ends. The cool brunette shade gives depth and volume, while the warm, lighter ends create a glowing halo and define the silhouette. We love the look on voluminous natural hair.
Platinum is a daring shade to wear, but can become the perfect fall hair color for blondes by deliberately adding a warmer, buttery shade underneath. Prevent any undesired tones from developing with the Magnesium Silver shampoo from the Serie Expert collection.
One of the most on-trend hair color techniques, hair strobing can lift a mid-brown shade and draw the light to flatter your complexion. All you need are a few carefully-positioned highlights around the front of the face in different shades of blond: from warm caramel to cool ash to balance the overall color tone.
The objective of nude hair color is to look completely natural. Like this ethereal baby blonde with slightly darker roots to show your grown-up, grungier side. Dying your hair lighter can dry out the hair fibers, so add a hair serum or oil – like the Absolut Repair Lipidium Double Serum by Serie Expert – to your hair care routine to prevent frizz and flyaways.
One of the best hair colors for fall, nude ash is another example of several hair color shades combined for a natural-looking finish. Ash blonde lengths are used alongside a darker, grey blond at the roots for an all-over neutral finish. Keep your ash blonde looking glossy, not dull, with a purple-toned shampoo.
Don't assume that red hair has to be on the warm side of the color spectrum. By opting for a red shade with a hint of pink and blue pigments, you can create this stunning neutral orange color. Curls aren't obligatory, but they certainly show off a strawberry orange shade to its best!
Beige hair – a cooler and lighter version of bronde – has long been one of the most popular Fall hair colors for blondes. But because this year we're changing things up a little, why not ask your colorist to add a touch of rose to your color recipe? It really warms up a cool beige shade, making it the perfect nude hair color for fall.
