Winter weather can get you feeling frumpy and down, which is likely why salons are busier in January than July. Exiting the hair salon with perfectly glossy and vibrant hair color perks us up when we feel shabby and pale. But returning to the salon two weeks later wondering where all that magic went makes us mad as hell.

Eight simple rules can give you longer lasting, brighter color. Following these steps will make your feel better about your beauty investment, and extend the time you have to go back to the salon for a touch up.  Get the scoop below. . .

Dark, cocoa-hued brown seems so fitting for Fall. A rich, lustrous dark tone adds shine to your strands and pairs well with pale skin. Since we all look a little paler in winter than we do in summer, and a bit of sparkle brightens the way we feel on dark wintry nights, it’s no surprise that shades of this ilk are amongst the most popular of the season.

Thanks to a certain coffee retailer, pumpkin spice has attained almost mythical status as a drink, as a scent, as a color, even as an abstract ideal of the fall season.  If you are not pumpkin’d out yet, you can put the trend on top of you head!  Pumpkin spice hair colors feature warm butternut tones with hints of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. Just like the blend of Thanksgiving seasonings, this color is a perfect balance, bright but natural, neither strawberry nor auburn. Neutral makeup looks beautiful with this sultry shade, especially if you have a contrasting eye color. Click through the style notes for tips on achieving luscious pumpkin.  Click for StyleNotes →

This dark violet shade with it’s dappled surface recalls the hue of wild muscadine grapes which grow profusely over the Southeast in summertime. Subdued vibrancy is a big trend this fall. Deep purples, soft rose golds, and dusty pink-blondes take the rainbow hair trend in a more wearable direction. From a distance this shade would appear black, the violet operating more as a reflection than a primary hue.

This fiery, smokey red captures the flavor of an intense chipotle pepper. On the spectrum of reds this color falls in between natural and electric with a vibrancy that’s balanced, not overpowering. The depth of the color makes it easier to wear than more vibrant reds but with enough intensity to satisfy the most devoted redheads.
