As we soak up those last bits of summer sun, it’s the perfect time to start dreaming about your next hair move for the upcoming season. And guess what? We’ve got the ultimate sneak peek for you, straight from the mane maestro himself, Celebrity Haircolorist and Stylist, Marco Pelusi!
1. Color transition from summer to fall
Picture this: the leaves are just starting to put on their fiery display, and you’re wondering – what’s the next big thing in hair? From sizzling coppers that rival the changing leaves to cool, subtly highlighted locka that’ll have you feeling like a glistening autumn queen – he’s got the lowdown on what’s poised to take over your insta feed, So, whether you’re a bold trendsetter or all about those subtle, natural vibes, below, Marco’s got your fall hair color covered.
Although Barbie blonde is all the craze, fall is the time to add lowlights and dimension to blonde hair. It’s time to dimensionalize and soften — and even deepen — blonde haircolor. Rich golds; beiges, woodsy tones are lovely to add, darker or medium dark blonde shades, throughout the hair, in foils. It’s an easy transition to become a slightly richer, deeper, warmer blonde for fall. Think buttercream for blondes …
For the brunettes, it’s also time to add color. There’s probably been a lot of fadeage (over the summertime) and possibly unwanted brassy tones showing up throughout the hair color. So, feel free to deepen the brunette a bit, maybe even add a form of a rich red, such as auburn, for the ladies whose skin tone it’s appropriate for. Also, a caramel glaze over the faded “summery” ends of brunette hair is a great choice for just about every brunette. Think chocolate brown for fall brunettes!
Speaking of glazing — or glossing — this is a great choice for the redheads out there. Natural and color treated redheads look a bit faded; and a glaze with a demicolor to add shine, richness, and a more vibrant red is a great fall choice. If done properly, it can even help make the hair look and feel better. Adding more red to the faded mid-lengths and ends of red hair will invigorate it! Almost a rosey, wood red color…
2. Peek-a-boo highlights
Highlights that are underneath the hair that peek out on the sides and the back of the hair are for the fall. For medium to long hair, natural, progressive highlights — caramels, honeys, beiges — are the beautiful choice and are what’s in demand for certain. Think Jennifer Lopez with her brunette roots and lighter caramel highlights popping out naturally from the sides and back.
3. Enrich, refresh, condition
Refresh, refresh, refresh. Condition, condition, condition. The fall color goal is to enrichen your color, and add color back into the hair; so add anything to your hair that makes it richer. Deep conditioning treatments, oils (the right kind of oils – steer clear of mineral oil), color glazes, anything moisturizing is good for the hair. This will allow the hair to accept the deeper, richer lowlights or haircolor, and allow it to become stronger and prepare for winter! It’s an ideal time to switch to a moisturizing shampoo: check out Marco Pelusi’s Color Moisturizing Shampoo at marco® color moisturizing shampoo – Marco Pelusi Studio.
Additionally, to continually and frequently nourish the hair, with little effort: after each shampoo, and prior to any hairstyling (especially heat-styling), use Marco Anti Frizz Leave In Conditioner, available at marco® anti-frizz leave-In conditioner with collagen color guard® – Marco Pelusi Studio . A good quality leave-in (used often) will constantly replenish the moisture that was lost over the summer, and protect the hair from blow dryers and hot irons. The leave-in will also make the hair stronger and healthier.
