Chocolate, Carmel, mocha, chestnut, apple cider, pumpkin….. I’m not talking Starbucks- I’m taking 2021 favorite hues for fall. FALL IS HERE! It’s time to put away your flip flops and break out your boots and booties.
With the cold weather coming, a lot of people decide to change their hair color. So… let’s try something different like darker tones, low lights, or possibly a red hue! You can be as bold or as subtle as you like.
I believe that you should change the color of your hair with the seasons just like you do with your clothing. This is especially true because here in Connecticut each season has a color of its own! You’d most likely wear bright vibrant colors in your spring and summer wardrobes, and colors like browns and navy in the fall and winter months.
I also think face framing highlights are a great way to transition from summer to fall! They will not only accentuate your features, but also bring attention to your eyes without the upkeep and maintenance of traditional highlights – who doesn’t love easy, effortless beauty!?
It is also a great way to add some softness to your look without compromising on the depth you love.
If you’re not ready to dive into bold colors there are other ways to make a change. Ask your stylist for some subtle midlights accompanied by some golden highlights using your natural color as the background.
Guests are oftentimes looking to get rid of their bleached-out ends and go a bit deeper. I help my guests transition by transforming their faded summer highlights into warm autumn tones. These tones do more than just look gorgeous, they also make the hair look and feel so incredibly healthy. This mini-transformation is achieved by simply putting some “mid lights” in between the dark and light hair. You can also get this look by just a simple gloss or toner to add warmth and shine.
Even though these darker earth tones are super popular this time of year, we’re also seeing vibrant, bright colors like fuchsia, yellow, fiery reds and even bold blues! These gorgeous hair trends are popular but keep in mind they are also some of the hardest shades to maintain, so plan on regular touch ups and using color treated shampoo and conditioner.
If you are considering changing up your look for fall and you need some inspiration, your stylist can certainly help. There are many variations, so make sure to work with your colorist to find a perfect shade that complements your skin tone, complexion, and lifestyle!
