Like I stated in my last post, I am absolutely falling in love with fall. More and more as every year passes.
As a hairstylist, I was curious to find out what the trends were for hair this autumn. According to Harper's Bazaar, here are the new trends for hair this season:
The Off-Duty Ballerina
Thankfully- again for this season- top knots are left effortlessly undone. This is such an easy and stylishly-messy style that I know many of us are still in love with.
Braids And Twists
I have said many, many, MANY times how much I LOVE braids. So, how excited do you think I am that braids and twists are just as big for autumn?? Very. Very excited.
I know, I know, ALL of these models have perfect, oval faces. Yes- center parts suit oval faces best- at least that's what I believe. But, I also think that if you add a bit of texture- for example some softness, or wave to your hair- those of us who were not blessed with a perfect oval face, can now get away with rocking a center part, too.
The Mod Squad
These Jackie-O type updos, the beehive-like volume, the straighter-than-straight styles- these are undeniably retro. You can try your hand at these mod-styles to be on-trend this season.
What girl out there doesn't love to rock a simple ponytail? Well, now you ladies are in luck- you are as stylish as can be this season. I especially love the one that is sectioned of to add some intricacy.
And now for my personal fave:
The New Wave
I LOVE these bohemian waves-turned-sleek styles. Similar to the waves of past seasons, this fall the waves are a bit smoother- they have a bit more polish to them. To me- this is even better. This means you can sleep on your hair for a couple of days, touch up a few pieces and brush them smooth. Love.
And here are the Hottest Fall Hair Colours for 2014:
According to Elle, these are the MUST HAVE colours of the season....
For this season the icy and platinum blondes of the SPRING are going a bit darker. Adding honey and golds warms up these blondes and brings them into the autumn trend.
Try scattering honey-blond highlights around the eyes,cheekbones and neckline for a naturally-highlighted-brunette effect.
This perfectly-autumn-hue simply oozes FALL, yes? This tone is bolder than the strawberry and oranges that have been debuting the last few seasons, but yet still very natural-looking
The new 'subtle-ombre' is all about softening those harsh lines that were big with the ombre craze. This beautifully-natural hue is sure to be around for many seasons to come.
