Whenever fashion trends change, the hair industry is right there changing with it. As we all know the best part about fall is wrapping up in our big comfy sweaters, leggings, a scarf, and of course the cutest new ankle boots. The 'low maintenance' look that looks like we spent all day planning it. Easy going fashion is this seasons thing, we're here to let you know the same goes for your hair.
Kick summer color to the curb
On your drive to work notice the leaves changing from green to their perfect blend of rich coppers and browns. A change in color is the easiest way to get yourself prepared for the chilly weather we've already gotten a little taste of. This year we will be seeing a slight change in everyone's favorite ombre trend. Were changing into a much softer, natural flow of colors. "Lived in hair" is a darker natural root with a flow of contrasting colors and dimension using chocolate brown, chestnut brown, warm golds and red tones.
This style is perfect for all natural hair colors. As we all know blondes are the ones who don't adapt to change as easily as the rest of us, but that doesn't mean you should be scared to try something new. Keeping the blonde around the front face pieces is key, while darkening up your base the slightest amount and adding the bronze undertones. This will give you the perfect fall change.
As a brunette you will start to see a combination of red and gold tones softly intertwining throughout your loose curls. The key to making a few of these strands 'POP' is to keep a cooler toned brown lowlight directly under the highlight.
Redheads will be able to pick between going on the blonde side, or the copper side. If you're having trouble deciding look at the underlying pigment of the skin tone. If red, stick to coppers. If yellow, stick to blonde.
To cut or not to cut, that is the question..
Were not here to tell you short hair or long hair is "in" because not one style will show off every clients features. However, we've been noticing blunt cuts making quite a few appearances all over. Luckily for all of our flowery branch family, Matthew just trained under the best precision hair cutters in the world ZGAT (@ZGAT_MM on Instagram) and brought it back for all of our talented stylist to get a little taste.
Styling & Profiling
We're still keeping it simple and easy when it comes to styling. The hottest thing right now are tousled curls. The one way were going to change from your every day look is to go up one curling iron size than normal. (If you use a 1 inch switch to a 1 1/4 inch) Doing so will create a "messy curl" that will allow you to rock it for multiple days! When curling you want to make sure the curls are going away from the face, allowing it to show off your new color while opening your face and brightening your eyes. The final step is to run your hands through the curls, have fun with it and remember they aren't suppose to be perfect!
