1. Red Rose

"Amber and rose colors will be trending this fall," shares Riant Passelande. "This is a soft and subtle look with various shades that can work well on both light and dark skin tones, as well as with light and dark eyes."

2. Strawberry Blonde

To further Riant Passelande's point about shades of rose being versatile, see this lighter version of the hue on BLACKPINK's Rosé here. Not sure which shade of red might work best for you? Robin's recommends going for warmer copper tones if you're looking to warm up your skin and opt for cooler tones to neutralize any redness.

3. The Polished Blowout

“There are many exciting styles taking over right now, and it feels like there are two opposite ends of the spectrum. On one hand, you have very polished looks like the voluminous blowouts that have been taking over these days. You also are going to see the return of super sleek straight hair,” shares Buckett.

4. Party Girl Hair

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Buckett says, is party girl hair. "Inspired by the ‘80s and ‘90s, this trend includes spiky up-dos, braids and funky twists,” says Buckett. “It’s the complete opposite of the super polished blowouts we were just talking about, and a celebration of natural hair texture, waves and curls,” he adds.

5. Buttercream Blonde

“This fall, we’re moving away from cooler, platinum tones and opting into soft, multi-dimensional blondes,” says Mowen. “I would even suggest going a touch warmer with an apricot- or amber-toned blonde, which is perfect for fall and winter. Overall, we’ll be seeing more of the buttery tones that reflect light better with all the nuances,” he explains.

5. Chocolate Rose

According to Mowen, brunettes are going the opposite direction, favoring rich, dark chocolate tones with cooler accents throughout. “For example, this look we created for Anne Hathaway features a richly toned brunette base with speckles of lighter accents throughout to keep it fresh for the fall,” he says.

6. Blunt Bobs

New York Fashion Week has just started and already there's one hairstyle that caught our eye: the blunt bob, as seen on the Christopher Kane runway (which has racked up an impressive 98.8 million TikTok views as of writing). Spotted on celebrities like Hailey Bieber and Emma Stone earlier this year, we foresee this sleek cut gaining even more popularity in the fall.

And the 1 Hair Trend That's Officially Out This Fall: The Blonde Money Piece

In terms of trends we've moved beyond, Hazelton tells us, “The blonde money piece highlights are fading out of style. For so long, the trend was heavily gradated blondes, bleached out ends and chunky money piece highlights, but now many of my clients are embracing a more natural look. As we head into fall, I’m seeing a lot of my naturally brunette clients embrace their dark, glossy hair a la Hailey Bieber,” she adds.
