  • You can find auburn hair-color ideas for fall to change up your look.

Auburn hair is wildly underrated. The vibrant, bold, reddish-brown hue looks great on all skin tones and works with all hair colors (depending on the base shade, of course), and is fun and untraditional without being too intimidating to try. It's never a bad time to switch up your look but if you've been on the fence about going auburn for some time now, the fall is the perfect time to take the plunge.

The beauty of this deep red-brown shade is that both blondes and brunettes can get in on the action and there are a variety of iterations to choose from. "If you are ready to rock red, keep the undertones of the shades in mind when picking your power color," Denver-based hairstylist and oVertone brand ambassador Douglas Michael told POPSUGAR. "Keep in mind your skin tone and eye color when choosing the right shade - those are big north stars in your navigation."

Auburn is also a great shade for anyone looking for a low-maintenance hairstyle as it continues to look good as it grows out and fades. "With reds, most people look stellar with a mixture of different shades of reds - dark or light," said Michael.

Nothing says fall like rich, warm shades of copper, caramel, honey, and chestnut, so keep scrolling for more auburn hair-color ideas and inspiration.
