As the cool fall weather sets in, it may be time to change your hairstyle or hair color. Look for a low maintenance style that will help cut down on the use of hot styling tools and heavy hair products. For color, warm tones take over for the light blonde shades and bold highlights of summer.
This fall hair is all about natural looks. Don’t overstraighten your locks – let your curls and waves flow. Just be you! Try to use styling tools as little as possible. Since the fall weather tends to be dry, there’s no need to dry your hair even more by using blow dryers and hot irons. Get a good, low maintenance hair cut that you can just towel dry, add a little product and go! “I have always said the more natural you look, the more beautiful you’ll feel,” says celebrity stylist Billy Lowe.
If you are looking for a new haircut this fall, consider the bob. Instead of the short bob of seasons past, go for a little longer lines. The hottest haircuts are just below chin length to shoulder length this season. The long bob is easy to wear and looks great on almost everyone.
Rich browns, dark blondes and warm auburn shades are trendy for fall. Steer away from colors that are too brassy, too blonde or just too fake. If you are adding highlights to your hair, opt for thin, natural tonal streaks rather than chunky highlights in a dramatic color.
Dress up your hair
Hair accessories are really big this season. Skinny headbands embellished with jewels and crystals add a touch of glamour and fun to your look. Some of the most popular headbands and wraps among celebrities these days are from Jennifer Behr. Jennifer Behr’s headbands have been seen on the set of Gossip Girl, on the runways at Fashion Week, and on the heads of celebrities everywhere. Here Lauren Conrad wears the Jennifer Behr Woven Encrusted Crystal Headwrap in Smoked.
A healthy diet isn’t just good for your body, it’s good for your hair too. Drink plenty of water to keep your hair hydrated and shiny. Calcium, protein and “good” fats are also great for your hair. Natural herbs are also a terrific way to fortify and strengthen hair.
For special occasions, forget all the advice about natural hairstyles. Instead go for something ultra glamorous and coifed. If you heading out to a party this season, put your hair up in a good old fashioned 1960’s beehive. You’ll need a lot of hairspray and pins to pull off Eva Longoria’s look from the Alma Awards. Add a pair of glitzy earrings and you’ll be all set!
