If you are a fan on Facebook, you may have seen that my internet is not yet installed at the new house. That makes blogging slightly more difficult, but I will try my hardest to try to keep this week as normal as possible here on the blog!
I thought it would be fun to talk about some fall hair trends today. I know I know, It's Monday--typically a hair tutorial day. . . I simply have not had time. I wish I would have pre-filmed a few but. . . well. . . I didn't.
So, it's been interesting being a stylist for nearly 10 years (what!) to watch the trends slowly take over my clientele. I can tell when new patterns are starting, and can sometimes predict which client will come in asking for a new, trendy 'do.
In general, hair color typically goes a little darker in the fall/winter. And it usually goes a little warmer too. I think part of the reason is that women miss the "warmth" that the summer sun gave their skin, so they make up for that with their hair. Rich, chocolate browns, warm caramels, even slightly fire-y brown accents are bound to make their way into hair color before too long.
As far as ombre goes, I'm seeing it take a turn for a more subtle approach. A little less contrast between the base and the ombre'd ends. I have to say, I'm glad to see this turn. I never liked the super severe ombre, so I'm happy to see it soften up a bit.
Women are chopping their hair too! I'm noticing more and more clients are coming to their appointments with photos of clavicle/collar bone length locks. And I'm thrilled about that. I like long hair on some women, but I'm a mid-length kind of gal myself. I'm happy to chop off several inches at anytime too--that's one of the most fun things to do as a hairstylist.
Curls aren't a thing of the past yet, but they keep getting softer and softer. . .eventually migrating to just large waves. Texture is still desired, so don't put away those texture powders or dry shampoo's yet. Buy a larger curling iron if you want to keep styling your hair with curls, but stay on trend.
Personally, I'm dying to cut my hair off. I've mentioned this a few times and I swear I'll stop talking about it soon. I'm excited about this turn towards slightly shorter locks this fall!
Do you change up your hair by the seasons? Just the color or the cut too?
