Take a deep breath…and exhale. Can you feel it? The air is a little crisper; the sun shines a little dimmer and pumpkin-spiced everything is popping up everywhere you go. These subtle changes are the first hints of fall, and we’re ready for #sweaterweather and all the cozy fashion trends that come with it. We sat down with two of our stylists to talk about the hot fall 2018 hair trends. Read on for what they’re seeing this summer.
COOLER WEATHER = WARMER, RICHER COLORS
This summer may have been full of icy-cool blondes, but now we’re making room for warmer hues. Master Stylist III Cory Loggins, who’s worked with top-named Aveda artists including Jon Reyman, says we’ll see a lot of warm, rich shades this fall—everything from golden copper to deep chocolate.
Master Stylist II Kayla Jones, who has 13 years of salon experience and lives for fashion trends says, “Without a doubt, we’ll see a lot of intense copper this year.”
TEST-DRIVE YOUR COLOR WITHOUT COMMITMENT
Want to make a change, but not sure you’re ready to commit? “Aveda’s Demi+ is the perfect way to take your color for a test drive,” Cory tells us.
It gives you vibrant color in a fraction of the time—the process takes between five and 20 minutes and lasts up to 40 washes. The completely customizable formula allows you to choose your hair hue and intensity to make your look uniquely yours. Plus, it’s made with certified-organic castor and jojoba oils, giving you a gorgeous shine that lasts.
THE ROOT-Y LOOK IS HERE TO STAY
Rejoice our two-toned (or more) friends—your balayage is still very on-trend, both on the runaway and in real life. “The root-y look adds depth and dimension around your face and enhances skin tones and eye colors,” Cory explains.
The darker root also balances you out and prevents you from feeling washed out. To take your look to the next level, Kayla suggests changing your eyebrow to match your roots. “It really pulls the look together.”
A SHOUTOUT TO THE SIMPLE STYLE
When it comes to styling your hair this fall, the trend is to keep it simple. “You’ll see a lot of easy up-styles, loose waves pinned to the side or sleek hair pulled back behind the ears,” Cory tells us.
Kayla says she’s doing a lot of laid back and versatile cuts, things like lobs, messy layers, waves—and bangs. “Specifically, we’re seeing a lot of blunt and curtain-style bangs. Bangs and a messy bun pair really well with oversized sweaters.”
TIPS + MUST-HAVES
While we’d love to #wakeuplikethis, even the simplest of styles take (minimal) effort. For that effortlessly lived-in look we can’t get enough of, Cory recommends Aveda’s Texture Tonic. It adds a piece-y definition and body to hair. Another one of his favorites: Air Control. “You can’t go wrong with it as a finishing product—it’s long-lasting yet flexible.”
For weightless body, Kayla recommends Pure Abundance. It boosts volume that lasts all day while also conditioning to detangle and prevent breakage.
Don’t over-cleanse. Both of our stylists recommend investing in a good dry shampoo (we love Shampure). It’s 99.8% naturally derived using plant and flower essences that absorb excess oils using a non-aerosol mist. Plus, it calms your senses and delivers a refreshing lavender scent.
Before you take the plunge and make a change, Cory and Kayla offer sage advice. “Stay authentic to you. Try it once and you’ll know.” Cory stresses.
Kayla is also a fan of giving new looks a try. “Be bold—go for it. Be the best you by taking risks, trying new things.”
They also both say you should find a stylist you trust—one who listens to your wants (and concerns) and offers advice that comes both from the heart and professional expertise.
