Wheat Blonde Is Every Indecisive Blonde's Perfect Hair Color for Fall 2019
Brunettes might be running full speed ahead towards ashy tones for fall 2019—hello, ash brown!—but blondes aren’t quite so keen on the cool, borderline-smoky hue. Instead we’re heading to the other end of the spectrum, specifically towards a blonde shade that is both anti-ash and anti-beach blonde.
You could say the in-between color comes from a place of “no,” and we’re here for that kind of sass. It’s called wheat blonde, and we’re ready to reap, harvest, and sow the gorgeous shade every way we can.
What makes it perfect for fall? Like we said, it’s not too cool and not too warm—which happens to make it the perfect transitional shade for blondes. It’s also perfect for incredibly indecisive blondes who can’t decide how they feel about ashy versus warm tones. (Just me?)
This wheat-colored blonde shade straddles the spectrum somewhere between beige and butter blonde, which makes it decidedly warm without going totally golden beach babe. Plus, you can take it either direction, dark or light, to suit your fall mood, and we’re giving all the salon inspiration you need.
