What hair color is in trend now: five fashionable shades of fall 2023
Fall and winter are the best months to experiment with new hair color trends. There's something about the cool, fresh air that always puts you in the mood for change: not only in your wardrobe, but also in your beauty routine.
The hot months of sun and split ends call for a new hairstyle when September arrives and a fresh start. However, instead of copying any hair color you can find online, it's important to choose a shade that suits you. Who What Wear talked to experts to help you choose among the most fashionable colors of the cold season.
"I've noticed recently that hair trends have shifted to more subtle, seasonal themes, and now more than ever, customers want trends to work to their advantage, not the other way around," says Larry King, UK representative and founder of Redken and its own brand salons. "When it comes to hair color, customers are demanding simple looks that lift their spirits. These are created by our colorists to order to reflect our clients' personal style," he adds.
Everyone may have already noticed that copper hair is very much in trend right now. Celebrities such as Megan Fox and Emily Ratakovsky have already given it a chance. "The great thing about a deeper copper shade is that it requires minimal color treatment, so it's perfect for those who want strands that aren't too light," says Conor James Doyle, Redken employee and colorist. "When we lighten hair, we work with the natural warm shade rather than using neutralizing toners like we would for a blonde. I tend to use the classic balayage technique, which requires blending and diffusing the product for deeper nourishment."
And if you have curly hair, this may be the trend for you, says Claire Martin-Kennedy, Redken employee and colorist. "Smoky copper is one of my favorite looks for curly clients. It creates an amber glow. Imagine a shining, bronze, chestnut halo of curls," she says.
Ultra violet blonde
There have been a lot of different blonde hair trends lately, but Harriet Muldoon, Redken employee and senior colorist at Larry King, says we're now seeing blondes move away from voluminous, creamy tones to brighter, cleaner looks known as "ultraviolet (UV) blonde."
"UV blond is a stunning, platinum color," says Muldoon. "It reminds me of a soft 90s grunge look, but with a perfectly neutralized, clean tone and a more brilliant shine. This new platinum color is less silver and more of a neutral, milky blonde."
If you prefer a lighter look, why not go for a coppery blonde? "This color is the new strawberry blonde with a hint of peach," explains Muldoon, "This trend is perfect for blondes or lighter shades who want to add warmth with a touch of copper. Some blondes may be reluctant to try warmer tones, but a neutral, golden hue can be achieved. I like to describe it as a pink glitter and an easy way to change your look while still maintaining lightness."
"The rich nutty shade is making a comeback," says Jordan Cobella, Wella's official trend spokesperson. Imagine warm, voluminous tones of brunettes similar to this dreamy nutty shade. This fall trend definitely gives a cozy atmosphere.
Okay, you get the idea - there are many different variations of copper hair at the moment. But you really can't go wrong by choosing a real copper color for next season. It's not just a trend: the warm orange shade screams fall. There is a copper color that suits every natural shade of hair and skin, so consult your hairdresser before trying the dye.
