Some go darker, others bring in the bangs—either way, fall is the season many flock to the salon chair for a fresh ‘do, and Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale just showed us how it’s done. Her hairdresser, Kristin Ess, shared Hale’s newest look on her Instagram, dubbing it “Fall Blended”, a perfect name for the fall-ready color job.

"We wanted to play with some warmer tones for fall," Ess told Refinery 29. "I gave her a warm, reddish-brown base, balayage highlights, and glossed over everything with amber tones. Lucy's skin tone is magically versatile." The blond and auburn hues blend seamlessly together, creating a picture-perfect chestnut shade. And while a total strand transformation may be your cup of tea once the year comes to an end, we can’t think of a better hairstyle to officially welcome in the season (or a better spokesmodel to introduce us to it).
