If you’re looking to change your hair color it’s time to start thinking ahead. Here are a few tips on what is in for 2014.
Let’s first talk about what’s cooling off this fall
If you’re a warmer brunette and have been wearing carmel or golden shades switch it up to more icy-brown, which looks great on most skin tones.
Blondes are cooling down for the fall as well from warm gold to ice out, even to silvery hues (which can be added by foils).
Hottest color for fall? Reds
That can be anything from peachy golden shades with warmer red tones or bright cool red. The tone of the red is important and should be considered when looking at the skin tones and eye color.
Rose gold is making a huge come back this fall in fashion, so we should see that in hair as well. For strawberry blondes this can be a fun change. Adding gold highlights will help create the look.
Still strong after all this time
Chocolate, Carmel, and Mahogany
These colors are still strong for the fall, and always will be. It’s so much easier than before to achieve these looks. Most color manufactures have these tools pre blended as a color, which shows its popularity. I love to see mahogany and chocolate married together with carmel sombre.
What’s a sombre you ask? It’s the new look on the ombre. The sombre is a less dramatic look than the ombre, still giving the dark to light look.
So as you can see there is something for everyone this fall. The thing you need to remember is that it may take a couple of appointments with your stylist to achieve the looks so it’s time to start thinking on what look you want to show for the fall. If your plan is to make a dramatic change for the fall then it needs to be done the right way. If you’re going from a blonde to brunette you must fill the hair then apply the desired shade. If you want to go from brunette to more of a carmel blonde then this may take a few visits as well.
When trying to achieve a major change you want to always, always, always, respect the integrity of the hair. Achieving major changes in a few visits instead of one will help to respect the integrity and prevent your new look from washing down the drain. If you desire to return to your summer hair, then make a plan out of the fall look before
committing. You don’t want to regret it later.
