Cozy Blonde Is the Ultimate Fall Hair Color Trend

Fall hair color trends are all about warmth—think coppers and reds and rich, warm browns. Yes, this even applies to blondes, with the latest blonde hair color trend proving not to be the exception. Meet cozy blonde hair, fall’s newest approach to staying blonde throughout the cooler months. Here’s how to get cozy blonde hair and all the hair color inspiration to take to the salon!

Cozy Blonde, Explained

Fall hair trends typically focus on smoother color melts, softer transitions, and toned-down, warmer versions of your summer style. The cozy blonde hair color trend is exactly that, a toned-down, muted version of your summer blonde. Think caramelly, copper-infused, bronzey, honey hues with lowlights and deeper roots. The best part about the cozy blonde hair color trend is how low maintenance it is, which is perfect for cooler months when you may not want to leave the house as much.

How to Get the Hair Color

If you’re looking to try the cozy blonde hair color trend, there are a few ways to go about it, but overall, it will require a color appointment or some semblance of color knowledge at home.

In the Salon

Transitioning your hue in the salon is the easiest and safest way to go cozy blonde. In part, this hair color will require toning down your existing blonde, or adding blonde in if you don’t have it. Either way, there will be a fair amount of blending needed that is best done by a professional.

If you’re already blonde, consider asking your stylist to deepen your root, tone down your blonde, and add in a few lowlights for a richer, deeper dimension. The contrast between the low lights and the rich, warmth of the blonde will create the perfectly cozy, autumnal tone.

If your hair is a darker shade and you’re looking to brighten your mane to achieve this look, then a soft balayage or color melt is for you. The best part? Because this cozy blonde lives on the warm side of the color spectrum, you won’t need to spend hours lifting and toning to cut signs of warmth. Instead, embrace it. Working with the natural honey and copper tones that come through during the lifting process will bring you closer to cozy blonde more quicker.

At Home

Because this look requires the touch of a professional, we wouldn’t recommend balayaging your hair at home (unless you know what you’re doing). But if you have an existing blonde that you are looking to darken and warm up a bit, an at-home toner can help get you there. Brands like Overtone make color depositing, toning conditioners that can temporarily hue your hair at home. Because cozy blonde is a warmer hue, opt for the Golden Brown Color Conditioner, or mix up your own hue using their Brown, Blonde, or Orange Color Conditioners.

Things to Consider Before Going Cozy Blonde

If you’ve decided that cozy blonde is the color for you, consider your skin tone first. Those with cooler skin undertones, or even peachy undertones in some cases, will look best in cozy blonde. If you have warmer undertones, be wary. Warm hair colors can sometimes wash out a person with warm skin undertones.

Beyond considering your skin tone, it is also important to consider maintenance. While this color trend is lower maintenance in tone, your roots are still going to grow. If you’d prefer not to be back in the salon chair that frequently, ask your stylist for a shadow root, or balayage, that blends with your natural color to extend the time between appointments.
