Embrace fall with a fresh hair hue

From striking to subtle, a budget-friendly DIY hair colour will revamp your back-to-school (or just back-to-cool) look.

Following a season in the sun, any hair colour may look faded and dull. Kick-start fall with a fresh hair hue to instantly recapture your hair’s vibrancy. You don’t have to splurge at the salon for great results: Choose easy-to-use at-home hair colour, available in a range of permanent and temporary formulas plus a full spectrum of shades. Whether you’re looking for a bold, long-lasting change (hello, redhead!) or a temporary refresh, here’s how to achieve a stylish seasonal update that won’t break the bank.

Red alert
Step into the role of the leading lady and steal the show by choosing color ULTÎME by Schwarzkopf in “5.29 Vintage Red,” a rich auburn hue. This striking permanent shade is designed to resist fading and deliver up to 10 weeks of intense colour. In addition to the vibrant fiery hue, your mane will also receive a glossy upgrade thanks to the included tube of conditioning treatment that’s infused with Diamond Brilliance Serum.

Brunette boost
If you’re dealing with fine, thin or thinning brunette strands then Toppik Hair Building Fibers in “Dark Brown” can unlock newfound confidence. Made of natural coloured keratin protein that intertwines with your existing hair for an undetectable finish, it’s a speedy solution to a thicker, fuller-looking head of hair. Use the handy spray applicator to diffuse temporary colour coverage along your hairline or your part.

Icy blast
Paging all light blondes and silver foxes! Féria S1 Smokey Silver is by far the coolest fall hair colour update for anyone with a pale mane. A reflective colour formulated with deep conditioning ingredients — there are no dull or flat grey tones here. The result? A multi-tonal icy shade with shimmering undertones that look luminous from every angle.

Pink pick-me-up
Would life be sweeter with pink hair? Try Kristin Ess Rose Gold Temporary Tint and find out — minus the long-term commitment. Designed to enhance most blonde, pre-lightened or highlighted hair, the unique formula is meant to be played with, so you can easily customize the intensity and duration of your rosy experiment. Spray it on wet hair for a subtle tone that will rinse out quickly or use it on damp, towel-dried hair for a bolder, longer-lasting effect.
