Fall Into Fall And Winter With Sombre

12/08/2011 02:13 pm ET | Updated Oct 11, 2012

Like in nature when leaves turn to those gorgeous autumn colors against the gray sky, a stylist like myself becomes instantly inspired to create warm "spiced up" colors for the long winter nights ahead. So recently, I spoke to some top fashion magazine editors about the latest hair trends and what is going to follow the popular Ombré. I concluded it's a much softer version of Ombre'...a gentle golden color graduation I'm calling Sombré.

Sombré' is so forgiving because the rich warmth of this new look truly compliments all skin tones. What this means is a caramelized root color which seamlessly flows to a lighter amber and then to deep rose. This is the perfect instant face brightener for when the sun is low in the sky and we move to shorter days and long winter nights. This beautiful look is truly the ultimate in understated seduction, and gives women of all ages an incandescent glow beyond compare.

Dozens of celebrities like Mila Kunis, Jessica Biel, Blake Lively, Beyonce and my beautiful client, Adrienne Maloof are all wearing this new luxurious hue! And many fashion forward men are embracing this flattering look too. Clients at my Montage Beverly Hills Salon are booking weeks in advance requesting their immediate transformation before the holidays! Our brunettes are dipped in carmel and Vo-Blondes are bathed with deep rich gold, but if you want this fabulous new look, be sure to put yourself in the hands of a top colorist to obtain a perfect natural result.

When you do make the wonderful transformation to seductive Sombré' this Fall and Winter, you will likely find yourself inspiring many romantic nights before a roaring fire and long amorous candlelight dinners, which of course, will only enhance the rich luminous color of your gorgeous hair!
