As the leaves turn color and the countryside seems like a magical Cézanne painting, this is the perfect time for you to revive your hairstyle for autumn.
Here are some tips for healthy locks and current looks.
Mend Your Tresses
Shine is going to be big this coming season. Make the fashion-forward leap to get your hair healthy after the long, hot summer and get ready for fall’s cooler temperatures and drying indoor heaters.
Be sure to properly condition your hair to maintain your color and maximize shine. A weekly deep-penetrating, conditioning treatment and a few drops of a nourishing essential oil will make your hair luminous.
There are many wonderful conditioners available to purchase from the top professional brands, such as Redken, Sebastian, Paul Mitchell, Matrix, L’Oréal, and Wella.
Amp Up the Color
Refresh and revive summer sun-faded locks with a great new color.
A conditioning color glaze can add both depth and shine. Decadent chocolates and vibrant coppers pair beautifully with the rich shades found in fall clothing.
Today, fun, primary colors emerge in a kinder way with more options offering gentle ingredients and ease of use.
For those seeking to stand out in a crowd, popular trends include “tipping” and “flashes” of bright primary colors.
Go to your professional salon for a permanent option with Pravana Chroma Silk Vivids (www.pravana.com/products/chromasilk_vivids.html).
You can also try Kevin Murphy Color Bug for a temporary flash of pigment (www.kevinmurphy.com.au).
Perk Up Your Style
Do not fall into the habit of having long hair just to tie it up into a ponytail every day.
Try this popular trend: Crop off long hair in exchange for shoulder-dusting long bobs, also known as “the Lob,” as seen in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Allure.
Add soft layers and gentle curls, which are more popular than ever.
Need inspiration? Just open a beauty magazine where you can see gorgeous beauty advertisements. Take that page to your professional as a guide for your next cut and/or color.
With a great cut shaped to your face, it is unnecessary to wear the same look 24/7. So mix it up with color, curls, body, and shine. Step into fall with healthy hair that is always totally in style.
