Low Maintenance Fall Colors and Highlights for Back-to-School

08 31, 2021

The warm days of Summer break are coming to a close to be replaced with busy class schedules and cooler weather. It’s bittersweet. Whether you're a teacher or a student, in high school or in college, your daily routine will soon be jam-packed with homework, extracurricular activities, and late-night cram sessions. You won't have much time left to worry about your hair when you’re getting ready in the morning. Armed with a gorgeous yet low maintenance Hair Color you can head back to school with confidence knowing that your hair still looks fabulous, even on those mornings when you barely have time for a ponytail.

Shadow Roots

We’ve seen this look on celebrities all Summer, and it appears it will be sticking around well into the Fall. When Hair Color grows out naturally there is a stark line between the roots and the length of the hair. Shadow Roots gradually blend roots with the lighter color below. The look is softer and more natural, like sun-bleached hair that's growing out. If your roots are the same as or very close to your natural color, no one will notice when they do start to grow out, giving you a fabulous easy-to-care-for look.

Fantasy Colors

You probably didn't expect to see this on a list of low-maintenance hair colors, but there is a way to enjoy bold Fantasy Colors without a lot of work. The key is to add just a bright pop of color to your own natural shade. A fun way of doing this is with Money Piece Highlights. The bold color frames your face and grabs attention but won't look out of place when it starts to grow out.

Dirty Brunette

You’ve heard of dirty-blonde, but this Fall it's a brunette's time to shine. Rather than having brunette Lowlights blended into blonde hair, warm blonde Highlights are added to a brunette base to achieve the dirty-brunette look. The goal is to have a natural-looking color with added warmth and dimension that is super easy to care for and will continue to look great as it grows out.


Again, the key to making this an easy-to-manage Hair Color is starting with your natural color at the roots. You can then choose any color you want your base color to melt into. Opt for natural colors for a subtle look, or bold and bright colors to make a statement.
