It’s fall! Did you notice the change in the air? We totally did. Even though September has barely started—the crisp, cool mornings are upon us. School is back in session, the State Fair is over, and soon, the trees will be dripping in rich autumnal colors. Though we LOVE summer and all of its fun activities, there’s something about fall (besides the cozy sweaters, boots, and apple orchard trips) that enchants us. Maybe it’s the promise of a new start—kind of like back-to-school season for grown-ups, if you will.
If you’re feeling the fall vibes as hard as we are and are eager to make a change to your look, we’re sharing a few of our fave fall hair and beauty trends that might just inspire you to pick up the phone and book an appointment.
Take a cue from your favorite celeb and transition your summer color for fall by warming it up! Go from cool to warm blonde—a buttery gold is just gorgeous when the season changes. Another new favorite color trend for brunettes is “spiced espresso,” a dimensional, slightly lighter version of the old standby. We like it with a little pop of caramel balayage near your face to brighten things up. And what’s fall without the lush red shades of changing leaves? September is the perfect time to go red, whether you pick a bright copper or a rich, deep merlot. We can even match your color to your Pumpkin Spice Latte if you want!
A blunt, short bob haircut is THE haircut for fall and beyond. Since summer’s over, you won’t need to pull your hair up into a pony on hot sweaty days. Designers at New York Fashion Week were obsessed with short cuts with a ‘90s vibe, so if you’ve been considering a cut, now is the ideal time to do it. The wavy, textured bob is the new long layers. Trust us.
If manicures are your thing (and you know we love them!), then you’re in luck. This fall, you have permission to go crazy with your nails. Designs, metallic accents, negative space—the sky’s the limit. As for color trends, we’re loving plums, black, bright classic red, and sparkly gold. Book a mani-pedi with us and let’s talk about your plans for fall.
Swap out your summer makeup routine for a few fall trends, like smudged, stained berry lips, applied with a brush and blotted for a “diffused” effect. The idea is to make your lips look like you’ve been making out for hours: a little messy, imperfect, and “flushed,” if you will. Graphic liner was also a huge hit on the runways, so don’t be afraid to overextend your go-to cat-eye or add some extra drama with your go-to liner pencil.
If you’re scared, let us give you some tips—book a makeup application and we’ll work together to freshen up your makeup style.
This just skims the surface of what we’re looking forward to this fall. Give us a call with all your fall beauty questions—we can’t wait to help you transition your look for the new season!
