Hair Color to ‘Dye’ for This Fall and Winter 2015/16
Lebanese-American poet and author Khalil Gibran said, “Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.” What a sensuous thing it is to have the wind play with our gorgeous, shining hair!
When our hair becomes dull and lackluster, we often turn to hair coloring to give it that glow we love. We dye our hair for a variety of reasons:
When the wind plays with our hair, we don’t want it to expose the gray that shows we are aging.
We just want to have hair that is exciting in color and texture.
We are tired of our ‘summer hair’ and want fall and winter colors.
We need to ramp up the look because our hair has seen too much chlorine from the pool and bleach from the sun.
Our hair has become dull and dry and we want that shiny, luxurious look back.
What is IN and what is HOT in fall and winter colors for hair
Most expert hair colorists do not recommend a complete change of hue for fall and winter, but they do recommend that we brighten our look with one of the hot new fall colors and trends. This fall’s coloring choices show a return to full highlights, chestnut browns to Icy queen blondes. so why not try...
Coloring tricks to make your hair look more exciting this fall and winter:
Adding understated highlights to the ends of your hair and lowlights to the roots will give you casually multi-tonal hair.
Letting your roots show (unless they are gray) brings forth an exciting new look.
Put in full highlights, allowing the thinnest of highlights in a shade level brighter than the color of your hair to weave throughout your tresses will give you a polished, full-dimensional look.
Dark highlights, with warm brown highlights in black or very dark brown hair, sprinkled along the low half of the cut create an exciting winter look.
Adding soft highlights to any color will brighten it up for winter.
Create a wildly warm look with a dark base and caramel blonde throughout the rest of the hair.
And for the very daring, add a bit of bright color near the top at the crown, and frame the face on a dark base of hair (bright blue is a very daring choice).
Highlight select curls for a fun look, with either subtle lightening or bold and outrageous contrasts.
