Low-Maintenance Hair Color Trends for Fall

September 15 2021


If you have commitment issues – that is hair color commitment issues – it can be hard to commit to a new hair color knowing that you’ll have to dedicate time for touch-ups or worrying about grown-out roots. But hair color doesn’t always come with a lot of commitment! At Meraki Hair & Makeup Studio, we can help you decide on a color that you’ll love and is also low-maintenance! Here are a few of our favorite low-maintenance hair color trends we’re seeing for the fall season. 

Subtle Sombre
If you love the look of ombre hair but are worried about maintaining it, let us introduce you to the sombre. You still get stunning gradient color, just with more of a natural, subtle look with less need for touch-ups. It’s lower maintenance because we use your natural color as the base and stay within three shades of lightness at the tips. It’s gorgeous results with less upkeep. 


Lowlights for Brunettes
If you’re ready to energize your brunette color, look at adding lowlights for a no-fuss option. Roasted chestnut, rich espresso, and mocha are all colors we’re seeing trending this season to liven up brunette hair. The secret is staying within one to two shades of your natural base to add lots of dimension and depth that continue to look amazing even as your hair grows out. 


Autumn Copper
Although intense reds are leading the way this season, you probably won’t want such a high-maintenance option. This is where copper comes in as a top choice for a warm, natural look. By adding subtle babylights of copper tones to your soft brown base, you’ll love the warm look for fall and enjoy just the right amount of contrast without the extensive upkeep of all-over color. 


Gray Highlights & Lowlights
If you’ve entered that time in your life where the grays are starting to take over, there’s good news! Gray happens to still be trending strong this season which means you can go gray a little more gracefully and still be in style! By adding some gray highlights and lowlights to your natural hair, or now called gray-lighting, it’ll help your own gray hair blend seamlessly together for a chic overall look. The best part is that it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance and is easier than trying to continuously cover your grays from showing.
