4. Luxe Copper Tones: From Bright To Subtle

Although shades of red and copper dominated most of this year, it’s a color we undoubtedly expect to see a revival of every fall. For clients who want to go warmer for fall, but don’t want to commit to a rich red—copper tones are the perfect trend. Not only are they shiny and luxe, but they can be worn on the more natural side, too!

 

Copper goes hand-in-hand with your client’s PSL fall routine, so make sure you’re ready to deliver with these five formulation tips. Looking for low-commitment color? Have your clients test the waters with a Moroccanoil® color depositing mask!

6. Rich, Warm Reds

Remember when all of our fave celebs like Zendaya, Kendall Jenner and Doja Cat went red for spring? It’s no surprise that reds will remain one of the hottest trends this year but transition into deeper tones for cooler weather. Often paired with a dark shadow root, this color is going to turn heads all season.  

 

Say goodbye to muddy color and hot roots—here’s your complete guide to reds!

7. Light, Glazed Brunette

ICYMI: Hailey Bieber’s glazed donut nails broke the internet this year. She recently posted a delicious chocolatey fall update featuring a shimmery bronze shade. That’s exactly what comes to mind when we think of a light, glazed brunette. 

 

This glossy color is perfect for prelightened clients looking to add glow and shine to their look. For clients who want to stay away from lightener, help them dip into something a bit warmer by adding a glossing service to their appointment.

8. Wheat Blonde

Our clients are leaning into warmer blondes this season (yes, they actually want to see warmth!) which brings us to the wheat blonde. This color features warm, honey tones that give us all the fall coziness we’ve been waiting for. These shades pair perfectly with slightly tipped-out ends or a shadow root for a more lived-in vibe.

 

This is another color that’s perfect for clients that love a low-maintenance look. Do you struggle to create a lived-in look because of over-foiling? Here are four tips to help you out.
