Fall hair colors for 70-year-old women scream warm and bright tones that reflect the autumn season. Older ladies look so much flattering with red, rich brown, and darker blonde hues at this time of the year.

With various colors to choose from, your skin complexion is a huge factor to consider.

Brunette and red tones bring out the warmth in the skin. If opting for blonde, pick the shade that’s opposite of your undertone. Feel free to consult with your colorist on this.

Hair color is a commitment, which requires upkeep. Copper, for instance, demands high maintenance, among others. It’s usually done with a single process, forming a harsh line when the hair grows out.

Balayage is a great low-maintenance alternative as it lasts for 3-6 months. The result creates a dimensional and softer blend that enables a more natural grow out.

Brighten up your look with these stunning hues. Go through the images and get inspired by these trendy fall hair colors for over 70-year-old women!

#1 Dark Red Lowlights and Honey

Try dark red lowlights and honey for a unique yet sophisticated vibe during this fall season. Adding red to your 70-year-old hair can be beautiful, but keep in mind that it tends to be a bit more high maintenance than more natural shades. Ask your stylist if they think this would be a color that would fit your style and skin tone.

#5: Glossy Golden Brunette Hair

Consider glossy golden brunette hair. If you’re naturally brunette and looking for a pick-me-up, ask your stylist for a glossing treatment at your next appointment. A gloss can add shine and body and bring much-needed life back into the hair. The effects of the glossing treatment can last 6-8 weeks, gradually fading with no harsh lines, making it a good semi-permanent option for your hair care routine. You can add a colored gloss or a clear gloss for just shine and body.

#6: Brunette Pixie with Copper Highlights

Give your brunette pixie hair some interest by adding highlights. If blonde highlights aren’t for you, consider a warmer golden copper. This not only gives your hair definition and texture but also brightens your face. Furthermore, highlights are excellent for showing off layers in your hair. Only ask for highlights in the longer areas. Highlights applied to shorter hair can make it look a little spotty.

#7: Auburn Bronde Short Bob

Adding fall colors can enhance your skin tone and show off your cut by providing depth and dimension. A deep auburn root and balayage golden highlights will create a beautiful auburn bronde look. For women over 70, adding a bit of color to your hair can bring a youthful edge to your style while preserving the beauty of your maturity.

#8: Golden Brown Mini Bob

A golden brown color pairs well with a mini bob style of hair for the fall. The golden brown hair color is warm, but it’s not red. The bob hair cut fits thinner faces best as it highlights the chin, jawline, and cheeks. If you want a shorter bob, a mini bob is perfect.

#9: Honey Blonde with Root Retouch

Try a honey-blonde tone for a softer look. Combine this with a root touch-up. The warmer gold undertones merge flawlessly with a brown base color. This makes the growing out process more diffused. You could also finish this look with shine spray. This gives an extra glow that makes the golden tones stand out.

#12: Light Brown with Warm Blonde Highlights

Try light brown with warm blonde highlights for a low-maintenance yet flattering look. Highlights give your hair dimension and give it the look of having multiple tones throughout. Having your stylist perform both of these services at once can be pricey, but it’s totally worth it.

#13: Chocolate and Blonde Blend

Try a chocolate and blonde blend for a modern, rich look. These autumn colors create the perfect amount of dimension when together. Ask your stylist if they think this look could work for your skin tone and preferred maintenance level.

Chestnut is one of the richest and attractive colors you could choose. Complimenting almost all skin tones, chestnut could be the perfect color for you. Chestnut is a warm color so be sure to ask your stylist if warm tones work well with your skin tone.

#16: Dimensional Golden Blonde Highlights

Try dimensional golden blonde highlights for a bright and cheery look. Golden blonde tends to be a bit warm, so make sure to ask your stylist if they think warm tones will compliment your skin tone. Make sure to use Olaplex No 4P purple shampoo once every few weeks to keep your hair from going brassy.
