Find out about the latest fall trends so you can keep your hair looking fresh and stylish. Let’s explore the new looks for fall, as well as a few timeless classics.
During Fall Fashion Week 2010, we saw:
+ Loose, Sexy Waves
Curls are back — not so much the 80s tight structured chemically produced curl — but more the irregular, free-form texture created by rollers, or variable curling irons. Body waves have become more commonplace. Flip through a current fashion magazine and you’ll find plenty of volume around the face and crown. This can be easily achieved by lightly pinning front pieces away from the face.
+ Blunt Fringe (Bang)
Blunt straight fringe or textured but blunt giving a strong frame for the face are now widely seen. This is something you have to get used to and have the confidence to pull off.
+ Side ponytails
Either low or high but definitely off center is the look for the fall. Perfect low-maintenance daytime style for busy young moms.
+ Casual long styles signifying “second day hair” working with the natural wave in the hair.
These are some of the new trends. Of course, the classics appear every season with some artistic variations. Check out these timeless styles:
This timeless precision cut will never disappear from our runways, magazines or our neighborhood and nor should it. Hair legend Vidal Sassoon created this timeless cut — and even today, it takes a master stylist with plenty of experience to create the perfect bob.
Variations on this layered cut continue to be seen everywhere. The shag is fun, flattering and versatile. When you find the right stylist, you just can’t go wrong with a shag cut!
This classic cut offers many choices and is so easy to style and maintain. From the boardroom to the bedroom, the pixie allows you to express your creativity and personal style. From one cut you can style in a variety of ways in just a few seconds.
But What about Color?
Hair colors are bold this season but tonal, creating dimension within the shape of the cut, which can be subtle or creative. Chestnuts, golds, blondes and caramels hit the stage and look stunning around town. Find a creative colorist who will work with your skin tones and lifestyle.
The idea this fall is to move out of your comfort zone with color and get noticed. When a stranger comes up to you and remarks on your hair you will know you have made a good choice.
The right cut and color for you personally maximizes your features and contours and generally makes every day a great hair day.
