The summer-to-fall transition is a natural time to switch things up, especially with a new haircut or a hot new color. Blonde is synonymous with summertime, but fall calls for richer, warmer tones. 

This season’s hottest hue is chocolate silk, which looks just like it sounds: A velvety dark chocolate threaded with golden balayage. This gives depth and dimension to brunettes and has the added benefit of minimal damage—our hair needs to recover from the summer—and easy upkeep.

Stars like Zendaya and Eiza Gonzalez were early adopters of this color trend, which is flattering to every skin tone.
