As the heat of summer gives way to crisp fall air, we begin to think of changing the shade of our hair-much like the changing of the leaves to the gorgeous colors of autumn. When we think of the summer months, we think of cool color, pale blondes, and pastel shades of pink, blue and lavender, strawberry blondes and so on. However, with the onset of the cooler months our minds begin to turn to warm coppers, deep auburns and true reds, chestnut browns, golden and honey blondes-the deep, rich more vibrant shades. Pastels give way to brilliant jewel colors, such as ruby red, cobalt blue, violet and emerald to name a few.
