Fall Style Guide: Hair Color & Beauty Trends
Fall is here, which means it’s time to switch out our skin care routines, pull out our warm coats, and try on a whole new color palette. Rich colors are here for fall — but the trending colors this season aren’t the same old shades. Instead, draw inspiration from this season’s hottest colors: Red Pear, Sargasso Seas, Mellow Rose, and Shimmering Silver. Color doesn’t have to stop with your outfit choices, so we’ve recommended the best hair and beauty looks to compliment your new fall style. We’ve pulled together an inspiration board for the season, with our best advice on how to wear each trending color — from hair color to nails and everything in between.
Fall means rich, deep colors that make us want to carve pumpkins and drink PSLs, and red pear is no exception. This strong red is warm while being bright and deep without being dark.
If you’re looking to intensify your inner redhead, Garnier Olia has two gorgeous auburn options. Choose 4.60 Dark Intense Auburn for a deep auburn result with up to 100% gray coverage. Or opt for 6.60 Light Intense Auburn for a vivid red. Both shades add rich red tones to hair — all the better to work with your new, deep wardrobe.
Finish your red pear fall renaissance with a beauty look that highlights rich red tones while completing your skin tone. Create your favorite fall beauty look with Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Scarlet Flame, a glossy yet pigmented everyday red, and Maybelline The City Mini Palette in Blushed Avenue, a six-shade eye shadow palette with nudes in both matte and shimmer to compliment your auburn hair and rich lips. Then seal the deal with essie berry naughty, a luscious, deep berry lacquer perfect for spicing up your fall.
With the sky blues of summer behind us, it’s time to get deeper with fall’s blue tones. We love Pantone Sargasso Sea, a navy blue reminiscent of a crisp day rowing crew on the water.
Golden tones pair beautifully with this deep, complex blue. For those looking to switch up your hair this fall, we recommend pairing with shades that have beautiful golden reflects like Garnier Olia 5.3 Medium Golden Brown and 9.3 Light Golden Blonde. Opt for Medium Golden Brown if you have natural hair between light and darkest brown. Light Golden Blonde is a truly light blonde shade that will provide warmth to the cooling fall temperatures, perfect for anyone with natural hair between light and dark blonde.
Match your nails to your new fall vibes with essie booties on broadway a navy blue cream polish from essie’s nyc-themed fall 2018 collection. Complete the beauty look with Maybelline the City Mini Palette in Concrete Runway, a blue eyeshadow guaranteed to make you stand out. Top it all off with Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Taupe Seduction, a berry-tinged nude that works with all skin tones.
Stick to soft shades this fall with Pantone Mellow rose, a sophisticated version of the viral millennial pink shade that’s graced everything from lipstick to runways to interior design.
Fall doesn’t have to mean settling down when it comes to your hair color. We love Garnier Olia 3.60 Darkest Red Rose, an intense red reflective shade for a color straight out of Beauty and the Beast. This rich red is best for anyone with natural hair between light brown and black. Natural blondes can still get the rose-hued look with Garnier Olia 8.22 Medium Rose Gold, a delicate balance of gold and red reflects.
To work mellow rose into your beauty routine, build a pink smoky eye with Maybelline The City Eyeshadow Palette in Downtown Sunrise, a six-shade palette with soft nudes and both shimmer and matte pinks. Tint your lips with the soft, subtle shade of Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Undressed Pink. Then get your fall mani right with essie young, wild and me, a creamy rose polish that works whether you’re walking down the aisle or into the office.
Finally, get ready for all things festive with shimmering silver, a metallic platinum shine that’s just as shimmery as the first snowflakes of the season.
Get the aura of shimmering silver in your hair with Garnier Olia 2.11 Platinum Black, a super-dark shade with a metallic trick up its sleeve. This intensely cool shade has a metallic platinum shine, best for anyone with natural hair between medium brown and black. If your natural hair is between light brown and black, try Garnier Olia 3.11 Darkest Platinum Brown for ashy, metallic reflects with a slightly lighter base.
Get the look from head to toe (or should we say pedicure) with essie empire shade of mind, a metallic silver nail polish inspired by the asphalt sidewalks of NYC. Then make sure your look stands out with Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Pink Fetish, an almost-fuchsia pink that will compliment any shimmer in your wardrobe, and six-shade palette Maybelline The Rock Nudes Eye Shadow.
