This wheat and chestnut version of ombre gives long tousled layers an autumn update. The rich, leaf-red base color brings warmth to paler fall skin; the bright ends give a diffused quality to the exterior of the shape, which will draw eyes up toward the face. Contrasting tones look great in a casual updo, and bring added texture to braided styles.See below for steps on how to achieve this look.

Step: Ask your colorist for a deep red-brown base with hand painted lighter ends toned with a cool glaze. A cut with long layers throughout the shape will allow the shades to intertwine.

Step: Red tones fade faster than any other shade. To maintain your hue’s original vibrancy, use color save shampoo and conditioner and try to wash only when necessary. Refreshing hair with dry shampoo can lengthen the time between cleansing.

Step: To replicate the look shown here, take large vertical sections of hair and wrap around a curling iron. Mist hair with holding spray to set the style, and run fingers through curls to create a natural-looking texture.
