New Look for a New Season? Absolutely!

September 10, 2009 (RALEIGH, NC) — With fall only a few weeks away, it’s time to start thinking of changes to your hair to complement the seasonal changes in your wardrobe.

Lather Hair Salon in Raleigh offers the following Seasonal Style Tips for updating your look for Fall 2009.

Hair Color and Highlights:

The bright blonde locks that looked wonderful at the beach don’t offer the same effect in cooler weather. One word: warmth. Just as warmer clothes define the change of the season, so should warmer hair tones.  Lather logo sm

And the biggest trend for hair this fall is red. It’s a hot color that looks great on any hair type. From toned-down copper colors to bright apple-red, this outstanding shade will give you dimension and freshness for the upcoming “sweater weather.”

Going red all over looks amazing, but you don’t have to be a “red-head.” For blondes, try adding some strawberry blonde highlights to your natural shade. Copper shades will also help tone down bleach-blonde hair for fall. Brunettes should try deeper shades of red, such as auburn and bold red. These colors look amazing as highlights or all-over color.

Cuts and Styles:

As for cuts, the bob has been going strong this year and will still be popular this fall. The cropped bob is an edgy, shorter version of the classic cut. This look is short all over and can be worn with blunt or fringed bangs. The pixie crop is even shorter, but remember:  It’s essential to embrace messy, loose tousles with this cut.

For longer styles, Fall is the perfect time to master the sleek blow-out. There will be less humidity to frizz your ‘do, so now is the time to conquer those sleek, straight strands.

The 1940s “mermaid look” is also a very fashionable style this season. It’s sleek and shiny yet loaded with sexy waves and curls.
