Rather than stick to your same ol' hair color for another season, consider mixing it up with some of the ridiculously pretty fall hair colors we've seen popping up on celebs and models recently. Because when the air turns crisp, pumpkin spice lattes start littering your Instagram feed again, and you've pulled your trusty black leggings out of hibernation (just kidding, you've been wearing them for the past year and a half), you know it's time to revive your hair shade. And now that we're all not just surviving with our unfortunate quaren-cuts and dry, grown out roots, we're thriving by experimenting with intricate, more complex hair color again. Because hey, it's time for a new us.
Since film and TV are rolling once again and street style is on the upswing, we're seeing more and more inspo from our favorite celebs that we need to throw in our save folder. And guess what? They're going all out too. From Sophie Turner's red return to models going bleach blonde, our faves are mixing it up as much as we are. So whether you're looking for a complete hair color do-over or just a post-quarantine update, we're betting there's a shade on this list that you'll want to try yourself. From raven black to creamy blonde to caramel balayage that just screams 'fall weather,' here are the perfect colors to complement the season (and your new version of yourself, whoever that may be.)
When opting for a dark color this season, go for an almost-gold undertone for your hair. It lightens your precious strands while maintaining the black shade you can't part with. (We've all been there.) Take it from supermodel Naomi Campbell, who's known to frequent the hair color.

Yara Shahidi's tightly-wound finger coils.
Just because the weather is getting drab doesn't mean your hair has to. Opting for a silver allover color or just highlights instantly takes you to a new level of cool. Look to Winnie Harlow, whose silverly side part proves the color looks great no matter how you wear it.

Kelly Osbourne's silver frost warms up a touch with a pretty lavender wash.
Want to hold on tight to your dark roots, but have a hankering to see what you'd look like as a blonde? Take baby steps with mushroom blonde. It's more of a neutral blonde with a few lighter ombré highlights, so your dark hair can still shine. Just consider how good it looks on Suki Waterhouse.
Lily Rose Depp's soft smoky blonde waves.
Gigi Hadid's loose curls with brown undertones.
With our favorite celebrities stuck in quarantine, we're getting to see them experiment with colors we never thought we'd see. Red hair is having a major moment—fire engine red, Jessica Rabbit orange, and everything in between—are becoming popular again. Dua Lipa DIYed her bright red hair and we're loving it.

Florence Welch's dreamy bangs.
Sophie Tuner's classic waves.
A no-nonsense brunette look has been so underrated in the past, but as the seasons change, we're looking forward to some au naturel brown tones. Daisy Edgar Jones' appearance in Normal People has inspired a new wave of classic, clean brown locks. This is neither pitch black nor strawberry blonde, but a delightful middle ground that suits everyone.

Meghan Trainor is one of many celebs who isn't afraid to try new things. Celebrities and normal people alike have been way too bored the last few months, which makes that box of Manic Panic dye look really good. Whether you're doing for a full head of neon or pastel colors, or just a stripe here and there, unnatural is the new natural.
Lena Waithe's multi-colored buzzcut.
Ruby Rose's pink and blue buzzcut.
Creamy blonde hair like Reese Witherspoon's has been spiking on our social feeds this month, and for good reason: The milky blend of platinum and blonde is the perfect transitional shade for any bleach-blondes looking to go a bit darker for fall, without having to deal with a huge contrast shock. See more celebrities rock the look, ahead.
