The most perfect ombré for autumn

If you thought an ombré was just for summer hairstyles, think again! The principle of ombré (a dark hair colour gradually lightening along the lengths) can be used with any colour palette.

And this autumn we're playing with natural shades of beautiful light brunette...

Autumnal colours, with a twist

Autumn is always a source of inspiration when it comes to hair colour. But, instead of rich, red-heavy shades like auburn, chestnut and mahogany, think lighter, more neutral-toned alternatives that suit all skin tones.

This example of an alternative autumn ombré features cool dark roots that gradually lighten into golden autumnal shades with ash and butter blond undertones.

Watch out for brassy undertones

Light shades can sometimes developed an unwanted brassy tinge. This is due to the red and orange tones used to colour the hair shaft. With repeated washing, these can start to show through. However, with the right shampoo, conditioner and hair colour protection products, you can prevent any brassiness from emerging.

How to keep your perfect autumn ombré colour

For light ombré creations with cool tones, we recommend using the Blondifier haircare collection by Serie Expert, which includes a Cool Shampoo and the in-salon mix Cool Blonde Perfector. For darker autumnal ombrés, also by Serie Expert, the Vitamino Color A OX Soft Cleanser is ultra gentle and won't strip the hair of its new colour. The CC Cream for Brunettes is also ideal for neutralising artificial red tones and keeping your desired colour for longer.
