With the changing of the seasons comes a changing of the hair. It’s a way for us ladies to transitions from suntans and sun kissed strands into fall with a look ready to SLAY the season.
If you’re looking for some hair inspo for the upcoming season, here is a guide to the seasons hottest hair colors, styles and accessories.
Blondes are making a fiery transition into the season by spicing up their look with hues of true peach and strawberry blonde. It is easy to add red, but harder to transition out of. So, remember to start subtly – a little goes a long way
Brunettes are also adopting the red trend with a transition away from the bayalage and ombre looks that have been dominating the hair game for the last couple years. Think shades of syrup, cinnamon and mahogany to fire up your brown hair this fall.
Blondes Stay Bright
Platinum blonde has been all the rage this summer with icy hues and frosty strands being paired with tanned skin and summer glows. Blondes can stay bright this season by adding warmer tones. Adding soft and natural roots that transition into lighter and bright ends will compliment fairer complexions that will come with the colder season.
From Silver to Smoke
Silvery shades of sterling and pearl was one of the most daring trends in color over the summer months. Our grey loving sisters can carry this look into the colder months by transitioning from bright silver to a darker shade of smoke. These tones can be maintenance intensive, but you can opt for less upkeep by adding a more natural looking root.
If you are interested in sliver, but prefer a more natural look, go for the griege trend that incorporates a blending of grey and beige.
Shiny in Satin
After a summer of playing in the sun, strands are left bleached out and dry AF. Give your hair a rest by going with an all over shade of dark brown. However, this season is all about the shine. If you go for this simple and sleek look, keep it sexy by adding a gloss treatment every two-three weeks. You can visit the salon or use at home treatments like these from Olaplex and John Frieda.
Making the Cut
Bring on the Bangs
Fall brings crisp air and weather that is less humid than the summer months, making it the ideal season for women to get bangs. This can be a risky move due to the extensive up keep that comes along with taking the plunge. Baby short bangs are popping up all over the place, but those with textured hair looking for easy grow out and management can opt for curtain bangs.
Keep It Centered
Its astounding how much a simple flip of the hair can change your look. Whether you pair it with fringy curtain bangs or a simple sleek look, center parts are where its at this season. Pair it with the popular mid-length cut for a simple yet classic look.
Cool Girl Bob
Ever since Jennifer Anniston coined “the Rachel” haircut, bobs have been the epitome of the cool girl haircut. This season the bob is going to shorter lengths that flatter all different hair styles.
Although some may want to stay away from the triangle bob cut, this is actually a great option for ladies with curly and wavy hair wanting to rock the look. Look to girl crush Karla Deras Chambers, the owner of the Line By K for curly hair inspo.
Asymmetrical bobs have not gone away. This look is typically shorter in the back and longer in the front. I like the look that takes it to the next level by making it longer on one side. Be cautious before jumping into this cut though. If you’re like me, my hair experiences the most breakage around my face and this is where you will want your hair to be the strongest to pull the look off.
Put a Pin on It
Bobby Pins, head bands, scarves and bows are a great way to dress up a simple ponytail or messy bun. Thanks to Alexander Wang’s recent runway show, the uncool is cool again. Rock those claw clip’s mami.
A Play on Ponytails
Don’t worry if you’re running behind. There are plenty of ways to rock a pony tail and still look fab. Feel free to roll out of bed and slick your hair into a sleek pony, leaving the ends in their natural texture.
Top Knots are also here to stay (and witch good reason.) Pair the easy updo with a bright red lip and a cozy sweater for a fail proof look that says, “I’m comfy and cute AF at the same time.”
Summers over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have hair so shiny it will blind a B.
