While temperatures are about to come down, new hairstyles are on the rise thanks to this year's red carpets and runway shows. From middle parts to claw clips, these are the most fun and flattering trends to consider:
The biggest hair color trends of fall 2018 are warm and spicy — just like the PSL. What differentiates trends this fall in hair color is the tone: last year we saw a lot of cool-toned browns and blonds, this year there are more warm colors.
If you're a natural dirty-blonde and your summer color is feeling a little flat, you can add a strawberry-gold highlight for instant warmth. If you're a brunette and craving something fresh, there's a glossy chocolate tone perfect for you. Or, refresh your color with caramel highlights that are the same shade as your coffee after you've added milk into it.
The five hair color trends that are going to be big this fall:
1. STRAWBERRY BLONDE
This is a great option for blondes who went platinum last year and are looking to go back to a warmer shade.
Think: sienna undertones keeping strawberry shades bright, not brassy. Hints of auburn for a warm, autumnal vibe. Rich red hair brightens light eyes and fair skin tones.
Lioness color is super fun this fall! This trend uses a subtle highlight to play up the warmer gold, strawberry blonde, or reddish base.
2. COLD BREW HAIR
Brunette with caramel highlights. This color trend is an easy way to add warmth to brunette hair without completely committing to adding lighter blonde tones to your hair.
Of course, non-brassy, beautiful color is always in style.
3. THE A-LIST BALAYAGE
If you're more low-key and an all over rainbow pastel 'do isn't quite you, then balayage is probably already your go-to for that Jessica Alba caramel blonde. Add an extra level of celeb to the situation with carefully placed shadows and highlights for that 'been on the beach' look where it's brunette towards the top and blonder on the ends. Freshen things by adding darker shades around your face to frame it, and blonder tones in the lengths.
4. YES, ICY WHITE IS IN
Between Cara, Karlie and K-Stew icy white hair is back big time this fall. But if you want to avoid getting a buzz cut, you need to do it right. And if you're not willing to go for the chop, ask your stylist to use Suface Color Additives when they lighten your hair to help keep it in good condition. It's all about your hair history as well: how blonde your hair looks after it's lightened all depends on what you've done to your hair in the past three years. This trend works best when a glaze is applied after lightening to ensure hair health, as well as cleansing & conditioning only with products recommended by your professional stylist.
