With the cool temperatures already rolling into the Windy City, it is hard to believe summer is almost over. But, as another season starts, new weather isn’t the only change, it’s about embracing the latest and greatest in beauty too! So to be on the pulse of the hottest trends in color, style and cuts, Sine Qua Non Salon is giving CHI-lebrity a sneak peek into what you can expect for hot hair this fall season.
Goodbye platinum blondes, hello warm, rich brunettes. Warm up to cooler temps with toasty colors like deep auburn, ruby, garnet and plum shades. Last season’s popular ombre trend will continue this fall but with a bit of a spin – instead of blonde, ends will fade into deep reds and scarlets. Blondes will be warmer tones, giving off the effect that the sun has lightened hair naturally. These deeper, richer hair colors will be the perfect complement to the jewel toned trends that will be seen all over runways this year.
The braided ‘do is still as hot as ever and will continue through the fall and are not just pretty this season, but practical! Braids will be seen incorporated into buns and woven around up-do’s to create a more artistic style. Braids will serve a purpose this season – used to decrease bulk, create separation and add interest to simple styles. Ponytails this season will be all about sleekness and shine! Tightly, slicked back ponies are making a splash for tied back tresses while up-do’s will take on more shapely, geometric styles.
For shorter hair, it’s all about grown out, more shaggy looking pixies this season. Undercutting will be a popular technique, creating versatility for shorter styles (and for some brave souls, even shaving out sections of hair to create artistic dimension). A 40’s influence will be prominent for longer styles, with the classic pin curls and finger waves regaining popularity. Longer hair will also have heavier layers to create a softer, more feminine look. Hair will go au natural this season with cuts that work with your hair’s natural texture rather than against it being seen on all hair types.
