For fall fanatics, the best time of year is fast approaching. While we're sad to see summer go, we more than ready for the new batch of hair trends that come with the change of seasons. Consider this your sneak peak at a few of fall's hottest haircolor trends—straight from one of the experts. 

After a summer full of rich, vibrant hues and ultra-bright vivids, prepare to dial things back a few notches for the next few months. "Softer colors with less contrast than before," Global Redken Artist Sean Godard says when asked about his biggest color prediction for autumn. "Deeper saturations, and more tone-on-tone with slight metallic finishes," he says. "I love the new Redken Color Gel Lacquers for deep saturation and high shine."

Even though the seasonal transition lends itself to trend changes, there are always a few popular trends that carry over. Godard says fashion colors are one trend that's bound to stick around for quite some time, just with different variation. "We continue to see fashion colors going strong, but I'm predicting less contrast and more solid colors in the coming months," he says.

And for one trend he's hoping will have a major resurgence, Godard wants more red. "I feel like people have moved away from red hair, and I think it's time to make a comeback to a classic," he says.
