It's the final stretch of summer, and while most of us are happily ensconced in our plans for those last sunny days, our hair is most likely bleached out, frizzed out, and a far cry from the color we started with in May. It's time for a fresh-start and a first look at fall hair color trends for 2010, just the antidote for forlorn, summer-soaked tresses. When contemplating an autumn shade update, take into consideration your skin-tone and, of course, the cool season ahead—shades just want to go darker, richer, and warmer in fall.
