Move aside, blondes. Brunette hair is this season’s most coveted hair shade. Find out what makes this crop of brunette hues your ideal fall hair colour.
This fall, we say your hair is your ultimate accessory. Yes, that means putting your Alexander Wang booties aside (just for a moment though, we promise). Choose a rich, deep brunette hair shade to complement the saturated hues of this year’s fashion trends, and create a look that’s dramatic and unforgettable. But if you’re not sure what shades are hot for the season or how to get the look of your fave celebs, Rob Pizzuti, master colourist with Blyss Salon Inc. in Toronto has the 4-1-1. We checked in with him to find out how to get a gorgeous brunette shade.
“My favourite celebrity brunettes are Nina Dobrev (Vampire Diaries) and Paula Brancati (Being Erica),” he says. “I know both of these performers personally and not only are they all class, all the time, but with their silky brown hair, with random touches of highlights, they stand out in a sea of bleach blondes.”
But Jennifer Lopez is the queen of seasonal changes, according to Pizzuti. “She was blondest of the blondes all this summer with her super highlighted hair and bronze skin,” he says. “Recently, my friends in Miami said they were just at a party and J-Lo was a deep golden brunette with pale flawless skin.”

Hair colour trends are often dictated by fashion trends. “With the summer sun ending, everyone is trying to keep their skin glowing by choosing strong, deep hues in their clothing, like jewel reds, burnt oranges, wood-like browns and Canada’s favourite, any shade of black,” says Pizzuti. “To complement this fall clothing trend, your best accessory is a rich hair colour.”
