Autumn Hair Colour Inspiration At Ian McLeod Hair & Beauty Salon in Sutton Coldfield

Autumn Hair Colour Trend at Sutton Coldfield's best hairdressing salon

Now might be the time to think about updating your hair colour ready for the new season. It can be overwhelming to choose your most flattering shade. To achieve the most flattering look your eye colour, skin tone and hair colour should all compliment each other.

When choosing the tone of your colour, something to take into consideration would be to find a shade that suits your skin tone, whether that be cool or warm.

For cooler skin tones a blue-based blonde like vanilla, platinum and icy shades will look beautiful. Women with a cool skin tone and an edgy style will look stunning with stark black, icy blonde or silver hair.
Whereas warmer skin tones suit rich chocolate shades or deep golden highlights. Women with both dark eyes and warmer skin tones will look most flattering with deeper shades of chestnut, mahogany, ombré or golden blondes.


Heading into autumn blondes could choose a natural/beige tone or a pastel tone to add vibrancy. A full head of highlights with tonal variety creates a rounded depth and richness. There are a variety of warm, luscious blonde shades such as honey and caramel to choose from to make a simple tonal transition work miracles.


This season, brunettes are encouraged to welcome lighter shades of brown and sand. Balayage highlights are bang on trend this autumn; adding in soft highlights of blonde to frame the face creates an elegant look that is perfectly suited to the season. If you want to create a delicate hairstyle, soft ombré looks are the way to go, with chestnut roots that fade into a light caramel.


This year’s autumn hair colour trends enable redheads to go for either a light, vibrant copper or a deep auburn hair colour. Don’t be afraid to add light blonde highlights or add sandy low lights to create a supple, energetic look that radiates health and shine.
