Upcoming Hair Trends for Fall

Now that summer is winding down and a new season is quickly approaching, it’s time to start turning our attention to fall hair trends. As it happens every year around the same time, the longing for something new, something utterly different and sensational kicks in. Hopefully this will provide you with some inspiration.

Not surprisingly, and following the lines of the fall/winter fashion trends, the new hairstyles are ready to bring a touch of drama to the streets, channeling the classic beauty of Elizabeth Taylor and Kim Novack. Come autumn you can expect to fall under the perfect spell of the Film Noir, embracing highly cinematic hair trends and referencing a very strong and powerful woman. We are all for that!

Either edgy, utterly seductive, sultry or plain luxurious, the Film Noir influence spanning over the autumn / winter 2013 hair trends reads pure sophistication. Seeing how Hollywood’s classical film noir period extends over the early 1940s to the late 1950s, there is a fair amount of vintage sway being reimagined as to complement the portrait of the modern and powerful woman of 2013.




And if you’re already thinking about a hair color refresh for the upcoming season, you’re in good company. But if you’re unsure about how and where to begin with your transition, start subtly. Find your hair color below and get these tips for the perfect color come fall.

For fall, we are predicting an influx of all-over blondes, but with a specific hue in mind. Blondes should choose more golden-y tones. And when it comes to highlights, face-framing pieces that skew three to four levels lighter than the rest of the hair would work best.


Brown-haired ladies, keep one word in mind: dimension. We believe you will see brunettes with bolder strokes of warm or reddish tones. That means rich, dark hair and bold highlights for serious movement and texture. The highlights should never start at the root for this trend. Talk to Matt about a good gloss, too, as this will add necessary movement and dimension.


Richer, coppery tones are in your fall hair forecast. Redheads should gloss after coloring. And since your hair color is already so vibrant and rich, it’s best to opt for subtle highlights. Smaller highlights should be randomly painted all over and glossed again for more intense tones.


At the end of the day, though, your fall color should be all about what works for you. Don’t try and do something you saw in a magazine and that you love but it won’t work for your coloring or lifestyle. There are so many options for you to enhance your look with hair colors, so don’t do anything unnatural.
