I'm dropping major inspiration here so you feel your best through New Years.
If there is one thing we learned this year is take your fun where you can get it. Fall is all about bold color, blunt cuts, and bouncy shag layers. Today's newest demi glazes actually improve the hair while coloring, giving you a rainbow of temporary color choices.
Short & Sassy
For the extremist – a side shaved asymmetrical pixie cut gives playful movement with longer lengths on top paired with a clean cropped side.
The A line bob (shorter in the back, longer in the front) is being converted to blunt and sleek pairing perfectly with fall’s higher necklines.
Confession – I’m totally in love with this look. Cut from chin to shoulder this round cut is shorter in the front and longer in the back – opposite from all the extreme stacked a-lines around. Round layers and soft texture around the face give a soft sexy look. A nod to 90s fashion influences (think Meg Ryan) it combines the styling ease of a bob with the playfulness of a shag. Looks great if you have a lot of hair – fine to medium textures.
Deep Side Parted Lob
Still need some ponytail length? Summer’s textured lob (cut from mid neck to collarbone) gets a blunt chop for fall. The polished version is styled sleek with a deep side part and minimal accessory. Accessories are huge again this fall and perfectly polish this low maintenance style. This year go delicate with a metallic bobbypin or pearl clip.
Curly Shag with Bangs
As much as I’ve hated the return of the 90s to fashion this year this textured shag is everything a curly girl wants. The volume is sassy, the look is tousled and fun and with the right styling products completely air dried! Stop fighting your natural texture and make it work for you. Adding a curly fringe (bang) heats things up making the look super sexy.
Long & Layered
Best styled with a middle part – longer hair gets updated this fall with shag layers. The ‘shag’ layer boosts volume around the face and sides. It can be cut different ways depending on your hair type. Thicker hair can benefit from a razor cut and weight removal keeping length but reducing bulk. Fine hair gets a boost from face framing layers and extra volume around the crown. This cut is best for hair that is slightly to moderately wavy so it can be air dried to look subtle or blow dried for major attitude.
Summer’s curtain bang craze gets a major upgrade for fall with a full heavy fringe. A heavy fringe (think Brigette Bardot) is as sexy as it gets but not for everyone. Best on medium-thick, straight – slightly wavy hair it falls flat on fine locks. Added to a long cut, the fringe can be styled by itself on a polished top knot.
Fall is the perfect time to try demi color. Demi richly pigments the hair surface but does not penetrate the cuticle. New technology allows today’s demis to improve hair’s texture and manageability with major shine. Lasting 4-6 weeks until it fades out, demi can be foiled in for subtle color pops or applied all over for a commitment free change. Here are the colors you should consider this fall.
Similar to ash – this blonde flatters cool/pink toned skin making blue and brown eyes sparkle.
Done in a demi glaze- you can cover your blonde or caramel highlights temporarily and have some fun with fall color.
A demi glaze will actually condition your hair while it creates a hair caramel mocchiato. The glaze completely fades from your blonde pieces making the color commitment free.
Beautiful on brown and green eyes this color is everywhere. It is soft and captivating and can be formulated with a rose gold backdrop for warm skin tones or a red violet backdrop for cool skin tones.
