Fall is arguably one of the most exciting seasons for hair. What colors do you think about when preparing for all of your clients' hair changes? For many, it's all about the warmth: reds, browns and golds, like the colors of the leaves (at least in temperate climates).

Lately stylists and their clients are not afraid to play with color, and some classic seasonal colors are getting makeovers. Check out these exciting variations on warm reds and pinks, and take note of the formulas for when your clients come in wanting a fall color that's a bit spicier.

1. Fall Copper

Reds and oranges are a reliable fall classic, and adding some striking depth, like @gabby_does_hair_ has done here, makes bright copper strands stand out even more.

2. Peach Blush

Closely related to rose gold, peach hair color often has tones of orange mixed in for extra warmth. Peach tones are crazy popular right now, and the beautiful trend will transition nicely from summer to fall. This amazing example was created by @jhair_stylist.

3. Hot & Spicy Red

Golden tones, like @live_love_dohair has added, can make red hair resemble an inviting bonfire. It looks exactly like how your mouth feels when eating chili peppers!
