The start of September has a way of putting everything into perspective. The semi-official start of fall is that check-in time to meditate on what you want the next season of your life to look like and what you're excited for.
It's why September is a logical time to book an appointment at the hair salon — make your hair match your energy. While the options for your cut will be dependent on your specific hair type and texture, the trends in color are more easily defined. This season, things are looking brighter than years past. Forget lowlights — it's copper, blonde, gold, and even a clip-in "party highlight" you'll want to wear out with your friends or just to feel cute for another date night with your Netflix queue. Scroll through to see the top five trends in hair color.
Every celebrity from Joey King to SZA has been styling red hair for the summer-fall transition. A muted — or "medium spicy" — copper is gorgeous, not too red, and looks so cool against a dark, natural brow as evidenced by Grace Van Patten.
Vogue Fashion Contributor Liam Hess recently coined "wellness influencer blonde" after Lorde wore an icy shade of platinum in her "Mood Ring" video. Amongst fellow artists and creatives, like Billie Eilish and Kesh, the particular shade of blonde seems to be something similar, but less stark white, like a yellow-tinged solar blonde.
Think of your "money piece" highlight like ring light for your hair. The teeny-tiny, face-framing strands of blonde add a pop of brightness to an otherwise monochrome hair color without having to concede length or spend hours at the salon.
If you have black or dark-brown hair, a natural-looking upgrade would be a subtle warm lift, like these golden brunette braids on KNC Beauty founder Kristen Noel Crawley.
Olivia Rodrigo and Addison Rae wore clip-in highlights and not long after, the nonpermanent color streaks made it mainstream. L.A. hairstylist Kiley Fitzgerald created her own line of colorful clip-ins, in deep cherry and dragonfruit pink, sold on the Fyfe Beauty app. You can also buy a set on Amazon or at Claire's. (Crimping your party highlights is optional, but definitely recommended.)
