Happy First Day of Fall!  Also called the Autumnal Equinox because the equator passes the center of the sun, meaning day and night are nearly equal.  From here on, it’s shorter days and longer nights.  A change of season also means it’s time to change your look.  Here are a few of the hottest hair color, hair cuts, and products to get you started.

 FALL’S HOTTEST…

 COLOR - CREAM SODA

While rich tones like chocolates and chestnuts remain go-to colors for fall and platinum doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon (although we hear silver is the new platinum), the hottest color trend is… cream soda.  This “sweet” color is a transitional blond shade with a combination of high and low lights.  It can create a softer appearance for blondes but also works great for brunettes wanting to brighten up their look.  Since it’s not an all-over blonde color, you’ll find less damage to your hair and more time in between salon appointments. Win-win.

Emmy-winner Elisabeth Moss,  Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, and Model Gigi Hadid have been seen sporting this color recently.

CUT - THE BOB

The bob is undeniably the look of the season.  There are many Bobs to choose long, short, straight, wavy, textured, asymmetric, angled or try a bob with a bang. 

We often think of the bob as a chin length cut but if jaw-skimming looks aren’t your thing, a shoulder length bob (or just above the shoulders) is a great alternative.  A bob can be smooth and sleek, but waves and curls work beautifully as well.   A shorter cut can give fine hair the appearance of more volume and a layered bob can transform thicker hair.

Emily Ratajkowski recently paired a long sleek bob with Vintage Chanel on the red carpet.  She has also been seen with a wavy bob.   Emma Stone debuted a chin length wavy bob with bangs on set earlier this month.

The bob is a classic, universal look. With the right cut it can transcend age, face shape, hair color and hair texture.

 PRODUCTS

As we move into fall there is less humidity in the air.  This is when moisturizing becomes even more important. Plus if you’ve gone for a summer blonde or spent hours at the beach, you might be in need of a little therapy. Here are the must have products we recommend for the fall.

 Texturizer

Dry Shampoo

Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo

Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo

We suggest Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo.  It’s light and smells fantastic.  With a dry shampoo you don't need to wash as often, thus your not stripping the hair's natural oils. 

Mask

Kerastase Resistance Masque Therapiste

Note: Masque Therapiste is designed for thick hair.  If your hair is fine, go with Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense.  A classic with beautiful results.
