All The Hair Color Inspiration You Need For Fall…Beyond Just Your Basic Auburns!

All The Hair Color Inspiration You Need For Fall…Beyond Just Your Basic Auburns!



BYRDIE: With the change of the season, the temperatures drastically drop and so do our normal hair color requests. Simply put, fall is a time of year that embodies transition. The autumn leaves match some of our best hair color trends of the season, ranging in shades from deep auburn and chocolate brown to rich honey blondes and icy-toned highlights. We collected a few tips from our trusted expert to help guide you toward these trending transitional tones.


Caterina Alfieri is an expert hair colorist at New Jersey’s Mancuso Salon. She has mastered effortless yet elegant results ranging from bright blonde foil highlights to lived-in hand-painted balayage, rich brunettes, and all shades of red. Read on for 18 of the best hair colors to consider this fall.

Golden Brown

Fall Hair Colors Golden Brown Bella Hadid

Just because the temperatures are dropping doesn’t mean we have to shy away from the warmth in our hair color. To keep your color vibrant all season, Alfieri tells us, “At-home care is imperative to achieving and maintaining any desired hair color, and with so many products on the market, it’s easier now than ever. I love the Gem Lites shampoos for at-home maintenance and refreshing.”


Rich Berry

Fall Hair Colors Berry Burgundy Rihanna

We’re swooning over this rich burgundy for fall knowing all the ways there are to play off accessorizing with this color, even just with a pinch of bright eyeshadow.


Dark Ombré

Fall Hair Colors Dark Ombre Suni Lee

Ombré hair colors are still trending, but brunettes may want to consider keeping things darker and slightly more muted than usual. Instead of a drastic fade from roots to ends, keep your highlights a mere two to three levels lighter than your base color. This will eliminate the need for frequent touch-ups and can extend the time between appointments.


Overgrown Highlights

Fall Hair Colors Overgrown Highlights Gigi Hadid

Overgrown highlights have never been as in style as they are post-quarantine. Alfieri says people are looking for a “hair color that can withstand a long break from the salon and still look good.” These roots don’t bother us one bit.


Caramel Swirls

Fall Hair Colors Caramel Swirl Lily Aldridge

Swirls of rich caramel can in fact make their way into a low-maintenance, dimensional color palette for your locks. When warm hues drip down this effortlessly, they grow out effortlessly and are, therefore easier, to uphold through the long winter ahead.


Goodbye, Brass

Fall Hair Colors Grown Out Dark Highlights Naomi Campbell

Letting your old color fade away is easy with the help of an at-home toner to rid your lingering grown-out highlights of unwanted brassiness. Find a shade that blends seamlessly into your base color for an intentional color revival.



Fall Hair Colors Golden Honey Blonde Beyoncé

It turns out you don’t need to save your warm, honey blonde color goals for next summer. “Warmer tones are complementary on all hair textures and colors,” says Alfieri. “We all have the tones already existing in our hair, it’s just a matter of exposing the right amount of warmth for our natural hair, or the overall look we’re going for.”


Hint of Red

Fall Hair Colors Hint of Red

When contemplating your next hair color, don’t forget to consider your skin’s undertones, Alfieri reminds us. “All undertones can look great with warmth, it’s just where on the spectrum that warmth lies to complement your individual undertone. Pinker skin actually softens with rose gold tones and those with yellow undertones can carry those beautiful rich purple-reds.”


Dimensional Reds

Fall Hair Colors Dimensional Red Emma Stone

For a natural-looking red, try keeping ends a smidge lighter than your color at the roots. It will help keep your color looking lived-in and organic.


Dark Chocolate

Fall Hair Colors Dark Chocolate Brown Sara Sampaio

A rich, dark chocolate brown is always a frequent go-to at this time of year. The key to giving it that velvety dimension is incorporating highlights and lowlights of the same shade with subtle variations.


Pumpkin Spice

Fall Hair Colors Pumpkin Spice Daisy Clementine Smith

Is there anything that screams fall more than pumpkin spice everything? Didn’t think so. If you’re looking to add these warm copper tones into the mix, check out our collection of pumpkin spice hair color ideas here.


Buttery Blonde

Fall Hair Colors Buttery Blonde Ana de Armas

If you’re committed to keeping your blonde intact year-round, try punching the warmth up a notch this season. Adding more golden tones will add a rich, buttery look to your strands, says Alfieri, who reminds us to consider color placement for a softer grow-out, no matter how high the contrast.


Bronze Dimension

Fall Hair Colors Golden Dimension Joyjah Estrada

Braids are a great hairstyle to showcase your hair color’s depth and dimension, and we’re loving the bronze shining through the braids on this natural brunette.


Peaches and Cream

Fall Hair Colors Peaches and Cream Kate Bosworth

This creamy, buttery peach is a beautiful color for that transitional time of year between summer and fall, bouncing off the last of those golden rays.


Refreshed Natural Base

Fall Hair Colors Refreshed Natural Zendaya

To my fellow brunettes out there: To keep your natural base looking fresh this season without changing its hue, turn to a clear gloss every couple of months. This will help your tresses maintain shine and vibrancy. As if you just left the salon with a fresh coat of paint, but you’ll be saying, “this is my natural color.”


Natural Hair Colors Big Red SZA


Cinnamon hair looks great on every skin tone and requires minimal touch-ups. We gathered all the facts on this color trend along with 30 stunning examples for you here.


’90s Face Frame

Fall Hair Colors '90s Face Frame Dua Lipa

A good face frame is typically a brighter shade than the rest of your hair, but when it comes to tone, being intentional with warmth or coolness is a great way to complement your overall color.

Ochre Tips

No matter your length, a stark contrast of color (like this earthy shade of ochre against Solange’s natural dark base) makes a stunning statement. Dying just the tips makes it easy to trim and/or add color when you’re ready for a change.

The Shag Haircut Trend Is Getting A Playful & Low Maintenance Update For Fall

The Shag Haircut Trend Is Getting A Playful & Low Maintenance Update For Fall


The Shag Haircut Trend Is Getting A Playful & Low Maintenance Update For Fall

TZR: My friends refer to me as the hair chameleon of the group, and they’re not wrong. Call it boredom or curiosity to try out different curl techniques, but I change my hair three to four times a year. Sometimes I’ll have box braids, a buzz cut, a straight bob, a sew-in, textured pixie, or anything else my heart desires. Keeping a close eye on the major players on Instagram, the inspiration never ends and the want for new continues to burn in me. And after speaking with Raven Hurtado, stylist at Maxine Salon in Chicago, who told me there are no limits to fall 2022’s haircut trends, I’m pressed to get into a salon to experiment yet again.

“Anything goes this season,” the pro told TZR of autumn’s most in-demand styles. “This is a time to get whatever you’ve always wanted to try,” adds Leysa Carrillo, founder of Forever Curls Academy. With that being said, it’s always a great jumping off point to know all the popular haircut trends for the new season, whether from social media, the red carpet, or your local street style stars. The experts are seeing long face-framing layers and lived-in fringe make their way to the final trimester of the year. Not only that, but sleek French girl bobs and big chops are tempting options to cut it all off for fall.

Ahead, TZR spoke to a couple of celebrity hairdressers for their take on the top haircut trends for fall 2022. The experts are even sharing their go-to products for each cut to maintain the look like a pro.

Extra Long Fringe

Fringe that grazes just above your eyes is all the rage this fall. “The long bang with a shaggy cut is versatile and grows out beautifully,” Carillo tells TZR. “For curls, it’s especially beneficial as it helps transition into a longer round shape.” For easy maintenance, the expert recommends Mizani 25 Miracle Leave-In Cream to aid in curl definition, while simultaneously fighting frizz.

Draped Layers

Face-framing layers, also known as draped layers, are inspired by the ‘90s and early ‘00s. Hurtado says the layers should be cut around your face at different levels of lengths to accentuate your features for a head-turning look. The expert recommends styling with a round brush and Kérastase L’incroyable Blow-Dry Reshapable Lotion. “The lightweight styling cream gives a hold and shine and is also a heat protectant,” the pro shares. The round brush (that should be brushed inwards to enhance all the layers around the face) is what will help you to achieve the bouncy movement in front.

Shave It

Yes, long hair is synonymous with fall but there is so much power in shaving it all off. “Shaved heads will continue to be on trend as women are taking clippers to their heads,” says Larry Sims, celebrity hairstylist and co-founder of Flawless by Gabrielle Union. “Women are adding detailed graphic line designs and bold colors for personal style and expression.” Plus, it’s a great low- maintenance style as you can still wrap your hair at night for protection but in the mornings all it needs is a SPF spray (since your scalp is now more exposed to sun and environmental elements).

Sliced Bob

Hurtado describes the sliced bob, popular among celebrities, as a short to medium haircut that is cut in a blunt length to appear both classic and stylish. It is done by slicing through the ends of the hair with a pair of scissors, creating shape rather than layers — keeping the overall outline blunt. For a salon-style finish, Carrillo recommends SH-RD Nutra Therapy Shine Serum, a hair oil and serum that will help the hair pop, keep it hydrated, and make sure there isn’t splitting at the edges.

Curtain Bang Shag

For this fall, shaggy haircuts will be still be a hot trend. But not just a normal shag — a curtain bang update allows for a more playful yet polished look. For a great shag, Sims sprays in Flawless by Gabrielle Union Curl Refresher Spray for texture and the Flawless by Gabrielle Restoring Exotic Oil Treatment for a shiny finish.

Undone Bob

This chic bob can be done with or without bangs. Hurtado says this haircut has no layers in it and with the help of a texturizing spray like Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, it will have little fluff and airy-like texture that’s not too precious.

Tapered Big Cut

Erinn Courtney StyleSeat hairstylist and natural hair expert sees big chops trending for both males and females for the easier-to-maintain energy. She recommends Beauty Beez Hollywood Beauty Avocado Oil for a buzzed head (even just a portion) because it helps keep your hair and scalp moisturized, which is super important for fall as the weather gets colder and drier. Carrillo also suggests Mizani Scalp Care Calming Lotion with shorter hair as your scalp has closer access to the environment and needs a nourishing product to keep hydrated and fighting against dandruff.

Take a Peek Inside the Duluth Home of Vikre Distillery’s Emily Vikre – Duluth, MN

Take a Peek Inside the Duluth Home of Vikre Distillery’s Emily Vikre – Duluth, MN

Midwest Home: Emily Vikre, mom of two and co-founder of Vikre Distillery, poses in her combined library, art studio, and office space—a sensational room packed with pattern and color.
“I’ve never felt I had a single calling,” says Emily Vikre, co-founder of Vikre Distillery. Her resume proves it. The Duluth native has worked as a science journalist, museum educator, food writer, and photographer’s assistant—plus earned a stack of degrees (including a Ph.D.) along the way. She says she has always leaned heavily into her creative side, noting her “undergrad thesis was an illustrated poem about vesicular transport at neural synapses.”  

Vikre’s imagination was nurtured by a happy childhood in Duluth, where she roamed her neighborhood and explored the woods in a tightly knit community that celebrated holidays and marked the seasons together. She also spent time each summer in Kjerringvik, Norway, with her Norwegian mother’s extended family.

The spark to start a craft distillery came from Vikre’s parents, who attended a spirits tasting in 2011 and recounted the experience to Emily and her husband, Joel, when the couple were visiting from Boston, where they lived at the time. Emily recalls, “They said, ‘Did you know all you need to make great spirits is great grain and great water?’ And I said, ‘Well, Duluth has the best water anywhere.’ Then it hit us—someone should start a distillery here.” The couple returned home, started researching, wrote a business plan, and moved back to Duluth. In 2014, they launched their very own Vikre Distillery with three gins: Juniper, Cedar, and Spruce.

Their son Espen, 8, was born in 2013 and younger brother Vidar, 4, followed in 2017. The family settled into a four-bedroom house in the Hunter’s Park neighborhood, one block from Vikre’s parents. The bright 1920 home is filled with art she has been collecting since high school, along with a few antiques from her grandparents and great aunt in Norway.

Vikre says she always carves out a spot for the kids to work on creative projects but admits they end up doing art all over the house. “My friend, Siri, is an interior designer, and I remember her saying she wanted a dining table that constantly has paint and marker on it. That stuck with me.” 

In addition to being a mother and CEO at Vikre Distillery, Emily is also the author of two books, on the board of several Duluth nonprofits, and an exceptionally clever party planner. Her backyard soirées have themes ranging from Alice in Wonderland (candelabras, a giant rabbit, and a custom cocktail called “Drink Me”) to Winter Olympics (with a mini biathlon, ice skating, and curling competitions using brooms from the house). “I love a good theme,” she says. “The structure gets my creative juices going, and sometimes, I just want to dress up.”

A pretty pop of pink shines in Vikre’s living room—an area carefully designed with the kids in mind.

Do you have a wildly impressive bar cart at home? We did have an adorable bar cart at one point, but now it’s an art cart, which I highly recommend. It’s the highest calling for a bar cart. My cocktail stuff is tucked away in the kitchen. I have a bunch of vintage glasses and an embarrassingly large array of spirits. 

What do people not know about Duluth? Duluth is the woods masquerading as a city—there’s so much green space and wildlife, but at the same time, there’s an amazing music and art scene. It’s a great balance. 

What are some of your favorite local spots? We’re frequent fliers at Love Creamery,
and we get pizza from LuLu’s Pizza almost every week. For art, I like the Joseph Nease Gallery.

Any party-planning tips? Plan activities. Have a craft table, or ask a friend with a big personality to come up with a performance piece or toast to give the occasion an air of festivity. It’s more fun when guests have something to do besides just eating and drinking. 

What’s the worst pronunciation of Vikre (VEEK-ra) you’ve ever heard? Valkyrie, which is kind of awesome.
