Summer is (regrettably) almost over and Mandy Moore is already getting a head start on fall.

The 35-year-old This Is Us star hit the red carpet at an NBC Emmys nomination party earlier this week rocking a brand-new, slightly lighter hair color. We spoke with her longtime colorist Nikki Lee, co-founder of Nine Zero One salon, about how exactly she created Moore’s new color, which she calls “Autumn Glow.”

Lee revealed that she added a bit of fall spice to Moore’s chestnut colored bob. “As it’s mid-August, it’s not too early to think about fall color trends,” Lee explained via email. “This ‘Autumn Glow’ is a wonderful new brunette color for Mandy. It’s rich and warm with flickers of golden light!” We have to agree. It’s kind of the exact warm brown we always crave come fall…minus the unsightly brassiness.

Lee went on to detail how she staved off the potential brassiness created by going from dark to light tresses. The best part? You can totally use it at home. “To prevent your Autumn Glow from going brassy, try Garnier’s anti-brass treatment. It will keep your color beautiful and treat your hair at the same time,” Lee said.

Garnier Nutrisse’s Nourish Anti-Brass treatment costs a cool $8 on Amazon and only requires weekly use to neutralize the issue. After a sun-drenched summer spent on the water, our hair is looking a little orangey. So, new hair color or not, we’re totally snagging this.

Since it’s not fall just yet, Moore wore her newly colored locks off her neck in a low ponytail with a middle part and face-framing, loosely waved tendrils.
