Going into fall is a great time to change up your color and cut! I wanted to share the most requested color, cut, and styles to help prepare you for Fall! Enjoy!!
For the Blondes:
Bronde: The perfect color for Blondes who are wanting to try going darker. Its right in between brown...and blonde. Golden blonde and light honey, or cappuccino colors would be added to previously lightened hair to create a darker effect.
Rooty Blonde: For a "rootier" effect on Blondes, I usually gradually add low lights close to the natural color while leaving the blonde ends out. Over time, the low light will act as a the "root" and at that point I just place very finely highlighted pieces through the part-line for a sun kissed root.
Ice Blonde: My favorite blonde! To achieve this look, hair is highlighted to the lightest blonde, and then glazed with a natural ash, or just ash for a more smokey blonde.
Buttery Blonde: Buttery blonde is just how it sounds, buttery and beautiful! Again, this color is most often achieved with the help of a toner for the perfect mix of a soft, slightly golden blonde...like butter!
For the Brunettes
Golden Caramel: This gorgeous color looks great on warmer skin tones and is a perfect way for brunettes to try out highlights! Start by adding highlights around the face or from underneath the hair for the most modern look.
Sun-kissed Streaks: Perfectly placed highlights that mimic hair kissed by the sun. Depending on your hair and skin tone your highlights can be toned to a cooler, beige tone..or kept warm and golden.
Deep Brown: Dark brown hair can have many different shades! Try playing with Chestnut, Toffee, Cocoa, Chocolate, Suede, or Mahogany. Very finely woven highlights should still be placed periodically so the hair doesn't become too "flat" causing it too look unnatural.
Honey Bronde: Since "Bronde" falls right between blonde, and brown..I added this one to both categories! For a brunette wanting to try Bronde, highlights should be added and then glazed to a honey tone (or another color of your choice) for a soft and natural effect.
For the Redheads
Ginger: Ginger is in! Anywhere from vibrant copper to soft, natural tones, try enhancing this color with a simple glaze if your hair is already a light golden tone or add highlights and a glaze for a more dimensional look. This color looks great on ivory skin tones.
Marsala: The 2015 Pantone color of the year. Like most, this color cannot be achieved with an at home box color... it is a deep red, with just a hint of brown. Like most reds, it will require upkeep, and special instructions for longevity. Rinse with cooler water, try to wash as little as possible, and as always...use a good shampoo/conditioner combo!!
Rose Gold: Rose gold is also known a combo of pink, red gold, and copper. It is a beautifully interesting color and is mostly worn on the most modern, edgy of clients. It can look great on any length, and style! Try an ombre, have your stylist lightly feather the tips for a super natural look, or if you're really into it, try it all over! The hair will need to be lightened to a blonde shade no matter what.
Ronze: A combo of red, and bronze! A more natural looking tone of the "ginger" look, but still a rich, deep red. This color can be achieved by adding 2-3 different tones of red, copper, and bronze.
Trending Haircuts for Fall
Above the Shoulder Bob: This cut should lay right above the shoulders, with mid length to long layers. For a super modern look, try a more blunt cut. For a softer look have your stylist make it more wispy. This cut looks cute straight, or with waves!
Just Passed the Shoulders: The "it" haircut right now, not too long...not too short. It lays right past the shoulders and looks great with long layers and waves. Its the perfect cut for someone wanting to still be able to wear their hair in different up styles from time to time.
The LOB is still in! I keep wondering if this cut will ever go out of style and I'm glad it hasn't. I love this cut because its a great option for someone wanting to try out a shorter length, while still keeping their length in the front. It can still be worn in a pony, and looks cute with waves, or straight.
The "V" Cut: I have been getting SO many requests for this cut, I just had to share! It's a great way to create a new shape without taking off too much length. For a less dramatic look, try a "U" shape.
Hairstyles to Try
Braids, Braids, Braids: Braids are super trendy right now. Wear all of your hair in a single french braid, in an updo, one single strand braid with your hair worn down. Just add a braid..to anything.
Half up Top Knot: This style is everything. Its super easy, and I usually wear it as a second day style. Try it as a top knot like the picture shown, with a braid coming from the front hairline, or with a lower top knot. Anything half up is amazing right now.
Sleek, Low Pony's: A simple and classic style. Middle parts are great with this look. Wrap a piece of hair around the pony to cover your rubber band for a more finished style! Or add hair accessories like flowers, a headband, or a hair scarf.
