Hair Styles with Lowlights for Fall

Blonde with Lowlights

Summer Hair Color Fade-Out? Try Hair Styles with Lowlights!

Have you been seeing the ravages of too much summer sun on hair around you lately? Not only do we see the dried out look of too much fun in the sun, but hair color is looking faded-out making for blah looking brunettes, burnt-out looking redheads and washed-out looking blondes.

“Hair Styles with Lowlights this Fall” Hair lowlighting is a great way to add depth to over-lightened hair. When blondes become too light, they need to add warmth back into the hair. Hair lowlights that are too ashy in tone can look dull or gray. A gold shade of medium to dark blonde can be added to give the warmth they need. The placement of the foils is also a strategic art form and if you hope for a beautifully enriched color, see a hair colorist who specializes in how to do this and you won’t be disappointed.

How do you find that person? Stop the woman with a beautiful hair dye job, and get the number of her hair colorist. Word of mouth is usually about as good of marketing a professional can get, so ask around. The site offers you some board certified hair colorists in your zip-code area. To be board certified requires extra training and testing which is explained further on the site.

Hair lowlights are also a great way to subtly blend gray hair with blondes, brunettes and redheads. When the correct levels of hair color are chosen with an added knowledge of good judgment in the placement of foils, the gray hair can be artfully disguised.

If your hair is in less than desirable shape, try an at-home deep conditioning treatment, before going in to your hairdresser for lowlights. Allow for one shampooing after your deep conditioning, before going in for a hair color treatment. Not sure of the validity of this one, but have heard the hair may not grab the hair dye quite as well if it was just deep conditioned . . . so shampoo it once.

There are lots of conditioners that will work well as deep conditioners. Actually, any thick and creamy conditioner will work if you don’t have one specifically formulated as a “deep conditioner.” My conditioner of choice lately has been, Paul Mitchell Color Protect Reconstructive Treatment. It leaves my hair, shinier, softer and more full of body especially when I use it with heat, as a deep conditioner.

This seasons hairstyles with lowlights are done to look more natural so that they blend better. The most natural looks have a mixture of both warm and cool tones where the deeper tones are placed in a more subtle way. The heavier, more dramatic look of stripes, is gone this season, but for more highlight ideas check out our Pinterest Hairstyles with Highlights Board.
