fall 2011 hair trend forecast

Some quick tips on my favorite hair trends for fall 2011...

Hair Color

Red is the most popular color this fall. Red has many famous blondes and brunettes alike going firey this fall, including yours truly( not that I'm famous haha). Just to name a few; Drew Berrymore, Blake Lively, Whitney Port, and Mandy Moore. If it's your first time going to the bright side, make sure to consult with your stylist and take into consideration your skin tone and the level of maintenance of that color. Everyone can pull off red if it is the right level (1 being black and 10 being platinum) and the right shade (warm = orange/red red or cool = purple undertones).

Whitney Port, very coppery golden red

Mandy Moore, copper red brown

Blake Lively, golden orange red

Golden Blonde.
As it gets cooler, a lot of clients will want to add low lights in, and for some people that is a great idea. The alternative to that is that you can change the shade/tone of your blonde as well. You can do that with adding low lights or simply changing your toner. It adds depth and is a slight change that most blondes can handle without loosing their blonde (blondes tend to be afraid of change- I say this out of love, but it's true.)

Love this color.

Sarah Michelle Gellar, still with platinum in there, but very golen low lights.

Golden Brown.
Adding very subtle highlights that are only a shade or two lighter than your over all color will add depth and create warmth, brightening up your face. (Also see Olivia Palermo under 'bob')

Odette Yustman, very subtle highlights throughout the bottom of her hair, subtle ombre'

Hair Cuts

Long Layers
Kardashian Style. Khloe Kardashian's cut has been the most requested style that I have gotten this fall for long hair. It has a lot of layers on the bottom of her hair, creating height easily, but also leaving a lot of movement at the bottom of your hair, all while still keeping the fullness of your hair.

The Bob
Most people hear Bob and are immediately turned off to it because you picture "soccer mom bob"... Not the case these days. My favorite one this season so far is Olivia Palermo.

Olivia Palermo, love the cut love the color.

Fringe-y, heavy, paint brush, or side swept, you name it, bangs are always in for fall. They are so much easier to maintain during the fall, for me mainly, because your face isn't sweating as much as it was durning summer and your skin isn't as oily, so you are able to keep them clean longer. You can always use a dry shampoo in them either way though. They look great with beanies and can be done with any face shape.

Heidi Klum

Hair Styles

The Messy Bun.
Still going strong, the messy bun was still huge on the runways this fall. Keep it precisely that though, messy. 

Glitter it up.
Add some sparkle. Add a broach as a hair pin or pick up a sparkley clip and throw that into your messy bun. 

The Side Part.
It's back! After a lot of the straight down the middle parts the last few seasons, a strong side part is back. Mainly used in lots of up do's and with tons of volume!

Emma Stone

Megan Fox

The Sleek High Pony
Always in style, and Marc Jacobs, Gucci and Alexander Wang just made it a point to remind us of that. Perfect for every day or for going out.

Bar Refaeli
