Fall is here and that bronzy golden glow and shimmery ombre aren’t what they used to be. Here are a few fall color trends we’re loving right now!

Golden Gloss
Tone down that super blonde into a honey-wheat, golden glow. A warm gloss over a washed-out ombre or balayage is a perfect way to deepen and transform summer hair into a chic fall look. Bringing the highlights to lowlights offers the same dimensional color, but shows off texture and definition with a high gloss shine.

Reds
I am in love with Coppers right now. Bringing the warmth back into curly hair creates real depth. Curly hair loses reflection from light because of the uneven surface. Using a deeper level of red or copper will help the hair gain more shine and dimension. Rich tones create accents throughout the movement of the curls.

Chestnuts and Mahoganies
Adding a warm brown color to faded summer hair will help fill the curls – making them look and feel more supple. It also helps with frizz and allows the light to shine through the hair, making it feel its most rich and luxurious.

To Color or Not to Color? that is the Question: OUIDAD Says YES, YES, YES!

These days hair color is no longer a secret between a woman and her hairdresser, in fact Ouidad says that it’s equally important as the cut you sport. “I’m a Huge Fan of hair color-and so are 80% of American Women of all ages” Ouidad shares in her book Curl Talk, the outstanding hair care guide for all things curl. It’s clear that people are having more fun with color these days, and at all ages. And the really great news is that curly hair absorbs hair color better than any other type of hair. Bonus!

Ouidad reminds us that all forms of color dehydrate  curly hair – no matter how gentle the formula, so along with color, be sure to remember to condition -“Feed Feed Feed!” Ouidad outlines for us:

  • Three days before coloring your hair, apply deep conditioning treatments to give the strands substance, allowing the colorants to absorb evenly.
  • Ten days after coloring, repeat the deep treatment to keep the color molecules bonded, and to prevent fading.

The Queen of Curls is in your corner, helping choose the color that’s perfect for you, as well as looking at highlighting and glosses. Ouidad’s curly expertise will enhance your curl factor features tremendously!
