These Are The 7 Fall Hair Color Trends Taking Over Instagram
When it comes to beauty trends, Instagram has a way of creating a trickle-up effect. Contouring, for example, experienced a rise and (slow) fall on our feeds. Trends like wire nails started with a hashtag and ended up gracing some of the hottest runways in the world. Currently, the biggest hair color trends for fall are getting an Insta influx. While the names sound almost comical—cream soda, cinnamon fade, fallayage—the shades are no joke. Ahead, feast your eyes on the seven fall looks taking over social media right now.
In as literal of an interpretation as a hairstylist can make, the latest hair color inspiration comes from a childhood favorite: The classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Thick '90s-esque highlights of peanut butter shades are woven between strands of purple, makes for a 'Gram-worthy composition. Though we're not sure we'd actually go this purple wear in real life, with a few tweaks, this could be the perfect fall refresh.
It may look a lot like your average ombré, but vanilla milkshake hair has its own blend of dark-to-light strands. While the ends are lightened to the blondest blonde, the roots are kept natural for a more lived-in look.
This one goes out to our brunettes. Root beer hair is a way to update your look without having to fully commit. Subtle ribbons of warm red tints add dimension and warmth while still keeping your hair dark.
We've heard the term bronde (that middle ground between brown and blonde), and champagne bronde is its cool sister. Australian hairstylist Kaitlin Jade said that while champagne bronde is light—if you look close enough, you can see strands of white—it "just appears darker through the depth of its tones." Think of it as a lived-in platinum blonde.
Not to be confused with balayage, fallayage features ribbons of honey, maple and other fall-inspired hues. Since hair naturally lightens during summer months, this low-maintenance method puts the warmth back into dull locks.
