Jennifer Garner added a sideswept fringe to her brunette hair, while Kelly Osbourne opted for blunt purple bangs. And Jennifer Love Hewitt cut center bangs to complement her new color. All three hit the salon this week, but whose bangs do you like best?

If you're already thinking about a hair color refresh for the upcoming season, you're in good company. "It's a fun thing for my clients to talk about and do as the season changes," Wella Professionals Celebrity Colorist Jennifer J. says. But if you're unsure about how and where to begin with your transition, start subtly. Find your hair color below and get Jennifer's tips for the perfect color come Fall.
For Fall, Jennifer is predicting an influx of all-over blondes, but she has a specific hue in mind. "Blondes should choose more golden-y tones," she says. And when it comes to highlights, Jennifer suggests face-framing pieces that skew three to four levels lighter than the rest of the hair.
Brown-haired ladies, keep one word in mind: dimension. "I believe you will see brunettes with bolder strokes of warm or reddish tones," Jennifer explains. That means rich, dark hair and bold highlights for serious movement and texture. "The highlights should never start at the root for this trend," Jennifer advises. Talk to your colorist about a good gloss, too, as this will add necessary movement and dimension.
Richer, coppery tones are in your Fall hair forecast. "Redheads should gloss after coloring," Jennifer suggests. And since your hair color is already so vibrant and rich, she advises opting for subtle highlights. "Smaller highlights should be randomly painted all over and glossed again for more intense tones," she says.
At the end of the day, though, your Fall color should be all about what works for you. "Don't try and do something you saw in a magazine and that you love but it won't work for your coloring or lifestyle," she says. "There are so many options for you to enhance your look with hair colors, so don't do anything unnatural."
