    How Fall Hair Color Trends Have Changed

    Reinvent Your Hair Color With These Subtle Trend Changes For Fall

    Right after Labor Day everybody gets tired of the summer sun kissed looks and starts looking around for something a bit more earthy in hair colors. So I thought it’s time to look at some of the subtle changes I’m seeing in the fall hair color trends this year. Just like any other year, there has been a bevy of celebrities that have observed unique subtle hair color trends for fall, and their sense of style has been followed by many across the globe.

    When talking to your hair stylist bringing in pictures is always helpful, as it can put you both on the same page. Your strawberry blonde may not be the same as your hair stylists’ idea of a “strawberry blonde” but an image it’s a great visual guide. A picture insures that you’re both singing from the same hymnal and reduces the likelihood of unpleastent surprises. So here are some of my thoughts about the fall hair color trends.

    Whatever flavor you like your highlights, this fall, it’s all about a more natural sun kissed look. To achieve that celebrity style for today, don’t be afraid of showing a little root this fall and learning to embrace your natural hair color. Balayage is the perfect option to achieve that look, just make sure your hair colorist is well trained in the French hair painting technique and has taken classes or is certified.

    The perfect sunny day’s hair look is the rich caramel tone. However, warm, honey-streaked locks are gorgeous any time of the year and work well with most skin types especially those with olive and warm complexions. Jessica Alba and J-Lo are great examples of a perfect caramel shade.

    Dimensional Blondes

    Solid “Playboy Bunny” blondes are adding more depth into the hair with deeper medium tones to keep it softer and more natural like Kate Hudson. The key is having your hair colorist apply lowlights or medium tones in a strategic way so they don’t appear like stripes but soft ribbons. Zig zaging highlights and lowlights is the perfect way to achieve a dimensional modern blonde.


    Face Framing Highlights one of the Fall Hair Color Trends


    Brunettes like Lilly Aldridge are adding softer face framing highlights to enhance layers around the face. The key is to keep to highlights only two shades lighter so you still have a brunette feel without over lightening the hair.

    Another great way to spice up a brunette without adding highlights is by adding some copper or cherry-chocolate tones the brown. These look great on warm and olive skin tones.


    Softer Reds are Fall Hair Color Trends


    Red heads like Amy Adams are looking softer and less intense as a hair color trend this fall. Adding more golden brown and warm cinnamon tones can be weaved in with soft highlights or with a color gloss. Glossing is a great way to add depth and warmth to reds or any hair color. A gloss is typically an ammonia free hair color that just deposits sheer tone and helps add shine, luster and condition and is applied to all the hair at the shampoo basin and just sits for a few minutes.

    A fall Hair Color Trend


    Ombre is still a popular hair color trend, but has evolved from being an extreme look to more natural transition from dark to light by adding a third color. You shouldn’t be able to see where the dark stops and the light starts. A medium tone will help create a seamless transition. Hair that is medium to long in length tends to wear ombre the best. It can be styled anyway, but looks great with a one or two inch curling iron to add soft beachy waves. Many women love ombre so much because it grows out nicely and lets you stretch your hair color appointments out a little longer.

    Caring for your fall hair color

    Maintaining Your New Color

    Most importantly protect your hair color by using sulfate free shampoo and conditioners which will help to protect and preserve your hair color. Remember to maintain regular trims, and moisturizing treatments will keep your hair color looking celebrity worthy and fade resistant. It’s also important when changing your hair color or adding highlights to keep in mind your haircut. A great haircut will go unnoticed if the color isn’t enhancing the cut. For the perfect finish, don’t forget to touch up your makeup. Have fun, it’s just color!

    Enjoy Spring & LOVE Your Hair with these Easy Hair Color Tips!

    Spring is a perfect opportunity to brighten up your look with a little hair color. Whether you’re going on the lighter side, by adding highlights, or getting bold with a hot new color, it’s always in style to keep your hair bright and shiny. With the right hair care routine, you can embrace beautiful color and still enjoy healthy, vibrant hair.

    Lighten Up

    Spring can often inspire blondes to go blonder, or brunettes to embrace shades of caramel, cocoa, or other soft highlights. But with lighter color, can often come extra damage. To keep your hair healthy, it’s important to do weekly conditioning treatments. To protect from damage from color, be sure to find a conditioner that’s rich in protein to help rebuild hair structure. For best results, apply conditioner on towel dried hair; hit it with the blowdryer for thirty seconds and wrap in a towel; rinse with cool water after 10 to 15 minutes.

    Brighten Up

    This spring, vibrant hair color is a definite hit. But nothing is worse than when your bright, beautiful color turns dull and drab after a few washes. Be sure to keep color bright by paying closer attention to your hair washing routine. When shampooing hair, try to keep the water cooler, as hot water opens the cuticle and causes color to wash out more quickly. Also, using color protect shampoo and conditioner is a definite must! If you have all-over bright color, you can try a color enhancing shampoo, that actually deposits color back into your hair while you wash.

    Freshen Up

    If you’re soaking up spring at the beach or pool, you’re skin may be glowing, but you may notice your hair color looking duller. Freshen up your color with a glaze to add shine. You can opt for a glaze with color, to enhance your natural locks, or go for a subtle change of color (add a hint of cherry to dark brown hair), a clear glaze is another option just to add shine. Ask your hairstylist about the benefits of a glaze–and you may get hooked even after spring is over. (Redken Shades EQ; Paul Mitchell PM Shines)

    Change it Up

    If your blonde is taking on a shade of gold, or your once honey colored locks are looking drab, a toner is a great option to make blonde hair look healthier and richer. It’s amazing how a subtle tonal change can turn a dull complexion into radiant skin. The best part? A toner can be done at the shampoo bowl in 15 minutes or less! Consult with your stylist on whether a toner is the right option for your hair.

    Beautiful, vibrant hair isn’t just for hair models and celebrities. Your hair can be healthy, bold, and shiny with just a few extras in your beauty arsenal. Enjoy spring, and love your hair with these easy tips for healthy hair and beautiful hair color.
