While the top seasonal trends tend to be reliant upon technique like sombréto single process, baby lights, baylage, and even ombré. The most popular hair colors that are making trend this fall are Blacks, Dark Browns, Silver, Mahogany red, auburns etc. Weather or not one of these hair colors works for you will depend upon a couple of things.

Miguel Angarita, senior colorist at Mizu New York Salon says “One way to figure out your tone is, after washing your face to remove all impurities, to hold a yellow or red piece of paper, then a white, green, silver or blue piece of paper against your face, preferably in a well lit room with natural light,”. If your skin looks more flattering with the yellow or red piece of paper beside it, then you’re likely in the warm family. If your skin looks best with the other shades, you’re likely more cool-toned.

Then use your true color on the remainder of your hair to avoid having it look flat, according to Hapers Bazasrs
