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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
