Let’s face it: Going back to school is no fun. And while you may be secretly dreading the constant stress, early morning wake-up calls and tiresome all-nighters, there is a major plus of back-to-school season: It’s the perfect time to change up your look. From subtle highlights to bold shades, keep reading to discover five easy ways to play around with color this fall.

Add some balayage

Nothing says “I-just-got-back from-an-exotic-beach-getaway” like sun-kissed strands. If you have brunette locks, opt for a creamy caramel or mocha balayage. Or, for a bolder look, add subtle hints of pastel pink to blonde strands.

Go for the (rose) gold

Loving summer’s warm tones trend, but not sure how to wear it for fall? Opt for a striking rose gold hue. A blend of pink, red and gold tones, this light-catching shade commands attention and will easily transition into the cooler months.

Bang it up

Ready to make a major statement this season? Opt for colored fringe. The perfect way to give any bold shade a chic, high-fashion feel, bangs serve as the centerpiece of your look and put your color on display. 

Keep it short—and sweet

Looking for a way to add a little edge to a playful pastel shade? Opt for a cropped pixie or an asymmetric bob. A blunt cut serves as the perfect counterpart to any feminine shade, instantly giving your color a cool, modern feel.
