Low Maintenance Hair Color Ideas for Fall


Soaring temps may not make it feel like Fall is just around the corner, but before you know it school will be in session and we’ll be shopping for cozy sweaters, boots, and long lasting hair colors designed to keep up with busy schedules through the holiday season. Fall hair is all about ease, and a great color will effortlessly transition from sizzling summer weather to crisp fall afternoons.

Balayage. The balayage technique keeps gaining popularity thanks to its natural look and super easy upkeep. Because balayage is applied more naturally and the regrowth line is less obvious, it is great for clients who can’t get to the salon every 8 weeks for touch-ups. Based on popularity within the celeb circles, we don’t think this technique is going anywhere anytime soon.

Ombre. The ombre look is great for busy clients who want gorgeous color but can’t commit to the frequency of highlights. A tip for keeping ombre from looking too dip-dyed is to add a few soft highlights to help blend the top and bottom tones. A golden glaze can also keep the look softer.

Glosses. Pale blondes can get an easy update by adding a golden gloss to platinum highlights for more depth, explains Michael Canale. Adding subtle highlights around the face can also transition more high-maintenance color into an easier to maintain style.

Low-maintenance hair color doesn’t mean you can forget about hair care, however. If you want your color to last between appointments, make sure that you take care of your easy-to-keep color the way you would tend to highlights or bolder colors. Invest in a good color protecting shampoo and conditioner (your colorist can lead you in the right direction), and avoid any harsh situations that can fade or damage color.
