As the colder months settle in and nature takes on different colors, the change in season inspires a change in our colors, too. Fashion trends begin to celebrate warm, earthy tones and hair color trends transition to golden hues and autumn browns.
The bright tones we loved during the summer suddenly seem to contrast with fall and winter taking hold. But then you flash back to that time you went too dark and start to doubt if you should consider other colors. Have no fear, because with the right color you'll have hair that will complement the naturally paler skin tone we all get during the fall and winter.
Here are some essential tips to help you make the transition from summer to fall.
• Consider your routine. Do you have a busy schedule or plans to be out of town a lot during the holiday season? Think about your daily routine as you consider hair color and cuts. If you don't have much time to keep up with appointments every four to six weeks, talk with your stylist about colors and cuts that will grow out well for you.
• Bring pictures to the appointment. A picture really is worth a thousand words. But don't just bring one. Select several pictures that depict a similar hair color trend to give your stylist a good idea of what you're hoping for. The same goes for haircut if you want to switch that up too. Try to provide clear communication to your stylist about what you like in each picture. And keep in mind that your stylist might recommend various colors or tones to replicate the look in the most complementary way for your skin tone.
• Block out time. Depending on how big of a transition you want to make, you may need several hours or several appointments to achieve the desired look. Subtle changes may be done in one appointment, but bigger changes will take more time. You don't want to rush things in an effort to avoid damaging your hair. Be patient, good hair is worth the wait.
• Tender love and care. Help your hair recover from sun damage endured during summer months with a deep conditioning product. Your stylist can recommend the right conditioner for your hair type. Regular conditioning will help prevent and repair hair damage from coloring, styling and environmental elements.
Transitioning from summer hair to fall is fun and stress-free when you're prepared. Think about your routine before you settle on a new fall look, find great pictures that exemplify the look, make time for the transition, and take care of your hair so it remains healthy every step of the way.
Who doesn't love that fresh feeling of a new look? By trusting your stylist and communicating your desires clearly, you will get the results you're dreaming of.
