Welcome to September! It’s already feeling like Fall in Vancouver- time to get those scarves and sweaters out of storage. It’s also time to get your hair into the season with Fall 2015 hair trends. Warm, rich tones like chocolate, honey, and caramel always make us drool, but what if you joined the mermaid hair army this Summer?
Take those pastels and deepen them with slate, grey, blue, purple and rose gold. Turn those silver locks into slate grey ombres, cool down those baby blues with a deeper hue. Lilac hues are also going deeper for Fall to purple and deep magenta.
If you’re not ready to part with your ombre or grown-out balayage blonde, start by toning it down. Cool, beige tones are still going strong this Fall. Blondes may be looking to add shine and richness with tones of rose gold and lowlights of golden blonde.
All of these Fall colours need a great haircut to bring your Fall look together. Long pixies, finished with an undercut or razored fringe will have you short-haired ladies skipping a hair cut or two to grow in that fringe. Long bobs will still be a go-to length this season, finished with waves and textured for soft, natural movement. Long haired lassies should be looking for loads of layers to get their hair moving and creating more dimension for their colour.
A quick way to add texture in your hair is with braids. A crown braid adds instant texture to long pixies. Fishtail braids and Dutch braids for medium to long hair will be everywhere this Fall. Worn with an oversized sweater and a warm-toned ombre, you’ll be the envy of all your coworkers and friends alike this Fall season!
