The Best Tips for a Fall Hair Color Transformation

Rich chocolate browns are perfect for fall! Going richer and deeper gives your hair a break from the stress of lightening and normal wear and tear from the summer months. However, becoming a bottle brunette is not completely without its challenges.

Going darker is a big decision, so it’s important not to rush into it on a whim. Do your research prior to your salon visit. Colin Caruso, Artistic Director of Professional Hair Color for John Paul Mitchell Systems®, shares tips for a few things you need to know before going darker.

Understand the difference between level and tone

Level is how light or dark your color is. Tone is the overall hue or color of your hair. Typically, tones can be warm, cool or neutral. It’s important not only to identify how dark brown you want to go, but also to identify the tone of the brown hair color that best suits your skin tone.

Take it lightly

Going deeper/darker is a big adjustment, and it can take a little while for you and others around you to adjust your to your new look. Are you a blonde? Ease into a shade change by weaving in chocolate-toned lowlights; if hair is already darker, make it richer; and redheads can go more auburn.

Change up your makeup

Consult a professional makeup artist to you help select a new color palette that works best with your new darker hair color.

Lock it in with the proper products

Once you invest in your new color, invest in the proper products to make sure it lasts. In order to keep your color deep and rich, be sure to use color-safe products such as Tea Tree Special Color to make sure you’re not washing your new color down the drain.
