Autumn Highlights for Darker Hair

If you’re looking to tone down your summery blonde hair colour, Autumn is the perfect time! We know blondes don’t always have more fun, especially during the colder months, which is when dark, glossy hair colours can truly shine.

If you want a beautiful autumnal hair colour, ask your McGills Hairdressing colour expert to weave some caramel coloured highlights throughout your brunette locks. This will create a multi-dimensional colour that will look fantastic when the autumn sun picks out your highlights. 

Red and Copper Hair Colours for Autumn

Autumn leaves and the changing season gives us tons of inspiration for hair colours, with red and coppery colours being amongst the most popular. With a wide pallete of red and copper colours to choose from, we’re sure to find the perfect shade for you, whatever your skin tone! 

Make a bold statement with an all over red hair colour transformation or, if you are looking for something a little more subtle, ask for red and copper highlights to be woven through your base colour to warm your tone and make your complexion look radiant. 

Naturally auburn? Moisturise your locks and boost your hair colour this autumn with a colour enriching Davines hair treatment at our Edinburgh salon.

Cool Blondes For Autumn

Let your inner ice queen go a little early this autumn with a beautiful cool blonde hair colour. This ethereal shade looks sensational against most skin tones, brightening olive tones and cooling complexions alike. If you’re not a natural blonde this colour can be quite high maintenance, be sure to book in for toning treatments at McGills between your colour appointments. 

If your hair is currently a darker colour, you’ll need to attend a few sessions to lift the colour slowly, your McGills stylist will discuss this with you at your hair colour consultation.

We are the experts in creating beautiful blonde hair colours and use only the very best products from Davines to ensure the health of your hair.

Face Framing Highlights

Boost your complexion and look a million dollars with the “money piece” face framing highlight trend this Autumn. Your McGills colour specialist will skilfully add a contrasting frame of chunky highlights around your face to create a two-tone, subtle colour effect.

Usually a much lighter shade is added to create this effect however, for autumn, soft caramel and natural tones can look simply stunning. Just check out Beyoncé’s gorgeous face frame hair colour, we LOVE it!
