Chocolate Copper! This gorgeous fall 2016 hair color trend pairs rich brown tones with ribbons of copper and soft glints of violet.

This is the perfect fall hair color for brunettes looking to embrace those warm, dimensional autumn tones without touching their natural base color. Of course, you can always create a deep chocolate base hair color by choosing either cool, dark chocolate or warm, milk chocolate shades – either way, you can’t go wrong with this color pairing!

 

Cafe Au Lait Hair Color Trend

Hair By: Summer Reid of Suite Nectar Organic Salon (Tustin, CA) with Oway Hbleach for Balayage

That blend, though. Cafe Au Lait, this hair color term was coined by Hair Stylist, @meredithabloom and is reminiscent of the hot milk that softly blends into your favorite light or dark coffee base. This fall hair color trend is best achieved with your favorite balayage or handpainting technique and a cool combination of ash and violet colors. Both Summer and Meredith created these seamless looks with Oway Hbleach and toned with some Oway Hcolor – 11.17 (want the entire formula? Download our 2016 Fall Hair Color Formula Ebook)!

Channeling the earthy tones of terracotta clay, this fall hair color trend embraces warm, coppery hues. Another great fall hair color idea for brunettes who want to rock reddish tones without the upkeep that comes with more vibrant shades. Terracotta hair color is also quite versatile – colors can range from burnt orange to delicate peach, depending on your client’s desired hue or level. Both Kaila and Passang used Oway Hcolor’s .35 series to create these gorgeous looks.

Radiant Orchid Hair Color Trend

Hair By: Jessica Austin of Moss Organic Salon & Spa (Phoenix, NY) – toned with Oway Hcolor

Quite possibly one of the most sought after hair colors for winter and fall 2016 – Radiant Orchid! This vibrant purple hair color blooms with absolute confidence that intrigues both the eyes and creative spirit. Notably, high fashion colors like Radiant Orchid can be prone to fading. We recommend a sulfate-free, organic color protection shampoo and using the least amount of hot tools as possible.

If you’re addicted to flat irons and curling wands, then be sure to use thermal heat protection products, as well. Another way to let low maintenance clients embrace Radiant Orchid hair color is to opt for soft, balayaged pieces instead of an all over color (seen right from Jessica Austin). While both interpretations of this fall hair color trend are absolutely stunning, one carries less maintenance than the other

Mulberry Hair Color Trend

If there’s one thing we know about 2016 fall hair color trends, it’s this – just about every shade of purple of is in! Mulberry hair color is slightly different than Radiant Orchid, as it’s deep, rich hues are both soulful and enchanting. Both Tyler and Bailey used Oway Hcolor’s 5.77 and 6.77 to create these stunning shades that will stay on trend well into winter 2017.

The seamless blend of varying tones, while dimensional, also has a gorgeous unifying effect.

Honey Bronze is the perfect blend of honey hues and bronze/bronde tones.

5 ‘Must Try’ Bob Hairstyles for Fall

Whether’s it’s textured and tousled or prim and polished, bob hairstyles are the perfect option for those who are looking to lose the long locks this fall.

While there are many bob hairstyles to choose from, here are our top 5 ‘must consider’ bob hairstyles for fall and winter 2016.

Bob Hairstyle #1: “The Julianne”

wavy-bob-hairstyle-2013

We’ve deemed this bob, “The Julianne,” after Julianne Hough, who rocks this wavy bob flawlessly!

Characterized by it’s ability to be worn straight or wavy, this bob is both versatile and adorable. So, get ready to break out those razors and texturizing shears, because this bob’s popularity is about to make a WAVE!

Bob Hairstyle #2: “The Kloss Bob”

bob-haircuts-for-fall-2013

Inspired by Karlie Kloss’ bang + bob combo, this haircut is ideal for those trendy clients types who aren’t afraid to lose a little length, and add a little fringe!

Karlie Kloss’ bob is another versatile beauty, that can be worn sophisticated and straight or wild and wavy.

Bob Hairstyle #3: “The Inverted Extrovert”

short-fall-hairstyles-2013

Inverted or A-line bobs, can come in all different lengths and layers. Depending on your client’s face shape; you should tailor your inverted bob to accommodate your client’s best and least favorite features (yep, we all have ’em).

In addition, if your client is really craving a change, consider adding an asymmetrical aspect to your inverted bob.

Which brings us to our next super chic bob hairstyle…

Bob Hairstyle #4: “The Queen Bey Bob”

bob-hairstyles-2013

Spice up that a-line bob with a little asymmetric action!

Beyonce’s bob is chic and sleek, and perfect for those clients looking to add a little edge. However, don’t get it twisted (or do), because with a heavy side bang and some curls, you can really pump up the volume on this bob hairstyle for fall.

Bob Hair Style #5: “Long Like Paltrow”

bob-hairstyles-for-fall

Here’s the thing about long bobs…

If they are too blunt they can tend to be bland, and nobody wants that.

Ensuring the hair is properly layered in the back and slightly texturized will keep this hair cut from looking less like a “lob” and more of like the long, elegant bob it should be.

The Ultimate 2016 Hair Color Trends Guide

hair-color-trends-2016

2016 Hair Color Trends Guide

2016 is officially here, and with it a new hair color trends guide to inspire you all yearlong! While last year’s bold, vibrant colors were certainly stunning (we’re looking at you, Galaxy Hair), we predict 2016 hair color to eschew more natural, earthy tones. From antique-brushed blondes to rustic copper reds and browns, this is the only 2016 Hair Color Trends Guide you need this year!

2016 Hair Color Trends for Blondes

 

Sandstone Blonde

blonde-hair-colors-2016 hair-color-ideas-for-blondes-2016

A beautiful blend of beige and taupe-like hues.

Sandstone is a hair color trend inspired by wind swept sands with soft shadowing and ripples of color.

Pair a neutral root feathered down to lighter pieces of wheat and beige blondes to achieve this look.

Honey Butter Blonde

blonde-hair-color-ideas-2016 2016-blonde-hair-colors

A light golden blonde with warm undertones and strategic platinum placement. For a multi-faceted look, use a honey hue as your base or root and softly weave strands of golden and white blonde. Pay extra attention to face-framing highlights which should accent and enhance your client’s complexion.

Tip: this hair color usually works better on neutral to warm skin tones.

 

Strawberries & Champagne

blonde-hair-color-trends strawberry-blonde-hair-color

What better way to ring in 2016 than with a hair color inspired by New Year’s favorite sparkly sweet drink? Strawberries & Champagne is a dazzling blend of both champagne and strawberry blonde. A great hair color option for blondes who want to dabble in some reddish-gold tones without an overall commitment to “red hair.”

Amber Sunrise

strawberry-blonde-hair-color-trend Copper-Blonde-Hair-Color-Trend

And for those clients who are ready to go on full-on copper blonde, bask in the ambience of Amber Sunrise. Soft and reflective, this color is characterized by it’s golden copper tones.

Imagine the sun at the start of each day – it’s golden gaze and orange embrace is bright and welcoming, but also represents renewal.

There may be no better way to start the year than with an Amber Sunrise.

 

Crystal Ash

ash-blonde-ombre ash-blonde-balayage

Image Credits: Pinterest

A clean, light blonde with a natural ash base. When trying to achieve this hair color trend for your clients

visualize a crystal’s first emergence from rock: it’s cool, pristine and strong.

The key to Crystal Ash is to lift the hair to a pale, light blonde, while maintaining it’s integrity and strength. Hair won’t embody crystal-like features if it’s over damaged from lightening.

Tip: We recommend lifting with Hbleach (it’s made with kaolin and kukui butter and keeps the hair in amazing condition).

Hair Color Trends for Brunettes

 

Tiger Eye

tiger-eye-brown-hair-color-trend brown-hair-color-trends-2016

An ancient stone worn for protection and confidence, Tiger Eye is known for it’s rich browns and golds.

It’s thought to have healing powers and can be a great color choice for clients who want to begin next year’s journey with courage, strength and willpower. Re-create this hair color with handpainted caramel highlights paired with a warm or dark chocolate base.

Topaz

brown-hair-color-ideas-2016 Brunette-Hair-Color-Trend-2016

A precious gemstone, Topaz can come in a variety of colors. From golden brown to reddish-copper, this color is known for it’s multi-dimensional reflects. Thought to promote self-realization and control, Topaz may be a great choice for clients looking to bring about these qualities in 2016. To re-create this hair color trend, select a mocha brown base and delicately weave copper fine accents through the mids and ends.

Caramel Bronde

A balanced blend of blonde and brown, we’re no stranger to the highly requested “bronde hair color trend.” However, 2016 will be the year of Caramel Bronde. Picture light, caramel browns paired with neutral to golden highlights. Victoria’s Secret model, Gigi Hadid, is widely known for her beachy waves and bronde hair color.

 

Ronze

A striking combination of red and bronze tones “Ronde” is another color name mashup that’s bound to get many requests in 2016. This deep copper and warm brown hair color is best suited for warm to golden skin tones, like actress Emma Stone.

Sunkissed Auburn

If you haven’t caught on yet, copper hair color is definitely having a moment in 2016!

Sunkissed Auburn is a delicate blend of soft copper red and gold.

Even celebrity, Lauren Conrad, has opted for sunkissed auburn, as she announced her new hair color on Instagram just a few weeks ago (which just so happens to match her hair stylist’s color, Kristen Ess). To achieve the “sunkissed look” opt for your favorite handpainting or balayage technique.

Rustic Copper

With it’s spicy, energetic gold hues, any client willing to go for this deep copper hair color will notice a spike in attention and overall energy. This color is best suited for skin tones with warm undertones.

Purple Dahlia

Dahlia flowers grow in a vivid array of shapes and colors. From pre-dominantly red or fuchsia hues,

Purple Dahlia is a versatile, violet-red hair color.

Depending on your client’s preference or skin tone, it can be formulated to focus more purple or red.

Antique Rose

antique-rose-hair-color-2016 hair-color-trend-2016

Image Credits: Pinterest

 

We mentioned bright, bold fashion colors are going to take a backseat in 2016, but don’t count out all pastel colors.

Instead of ultra vivid colors that are quick-to-fade, expect more muted pastels. Think of dusty pinks and vintage washed blues that are soft and subtle.

One color in particular is Antique Rose – a mixture of soft copper and pink tones.

If you need more proof that pastels will be soft and subtle in 2016, check out Pantone’s colors of the Year: Serenity and Rose Quartz.

Serenity

serenity-hair-color-trend 2016-hair-color-trend-serenity

A bluish-lavender color that can be interpreted to be more powder blue or lavender. Above are a few ways this color trend may unfold.

Rose Quartz

A soft, muted powder pink. Rose Quartz is known as the “love stone,” and can be a beautiful color to attract romance into your client’s life. This light pink can be used as an all over color for your fashion-forward clients or a few streaks can be added to pique interest in your blondes.

2016 Hair Color Techniques

Shadow Root

Roots aren’t just for trees. Whether your’e creating a bright, fashion colored root (like this stunning purple) or just trying to ease the regrowth for your blonde clientele, shadow rooting is a great technique to add to your arsenal in 2016.

Contouring

You read correctly. Contouring isn’t just the latest, greatest makeup trend, it’s also being requested by color clients. So, what is it exactly? It’s the next step up from face-framing highlights and is custom for each client. Contouring with hair color can be a great way to enhance or draw attention away from your client’s features.

Tip: Use darker tones to create shadows to narrow or shorten face shapes. Use lighter colors to elongate and illuminate certain areas of the face.

Summer Hairstyles and Haircuts for Women

summer-2014-hairstyles-and-haircuts
The sweet, sultry air of summer goes hand-in-hand with windswept waves, boho braids, and layered haircuts.

With long days and humid nights ahead, you’ll need sun-sational summer hairstyles that embrace the freedoms of the season.

So, go ahead and Choose an epilator guide – indulge. Take a look at the hottest hair trends summer has to offer:

Braided Summer Hairstyles

Half Crown Braid

The half crown braid is the perfect summer hairstyle for keeping hair out of the face and in the spotlight.

If french braiding isn’t in your repertoire, try its twisted sister counterpart. Instead of braiding, simply twist the hair back from each side, then pin into place.

braided summer hair styles summer hairstyles 2014

Butterfly Fishtail Braid

This braided hairstyle is great for loose, low hanging hairstyles that don’t tug or pull the hair.

Start with your normal part, then pull back hair from both sides of the head, and secure it neatly in place with a small plastic band. You’ll then begin your fish braid; once complete, simply lock in the braid with another small plastic band, and snip the previous one that was holding the hair in place.

braided summer hair styles summer hairstyles for long hair

Best Summer Updo – The Braided Bun

Also known as the upsidedown french braid, this hairstyle is ideal for keeping the hair off the neck during the hot days of summer.

Bonus points if you add a bow. 🙂

French Braid Fringe

Ladies who are growing out your bangs, listen up!

This summer hairstyle is great for long and short hair lengths, or just about anyone who doesn’t want frizzy bangs blocking their view.

summer 2014 hairstyle summer-hairstyle-for-bangs

Summer Haircuts for Medium Hair

Shoulder-length Wavy Hair

Kill the flat iron already, or at least stick in a drawer until fall!

Summer is the time to embrace your hair’s naturally flowing waves. For a long lasting look, lock it in with a sea salt or texturing spray.

PRO TIP: Be sure to use a spray with added moisture, since salt can dry out the hair.

shoulder-length-haircut-2014 wavy-summer-hair

Wavy Bob Haircut

We’re calling 2014, the year of the wavy bobs!

Quite possibly the most sought-after haircut of summer, wavy bobs embrace the hair’s natural shape, making it your super secret weapon against the relentless heat and humidity of the season.

wavy-bob-hairstyle long-wavy-bob-haircut

Summer Hairstyles for Short Hair

Short Asymmetrical Bobs

This is the wavy lob (long bob) with a slight edge!

Short asymmetrical bobs keep it cool in the back, and throw a party in the front. Basically, your favorite friend this summer.

The Classic Pixie

The pixie is a classic, and what better time to give it a try than summertime?

Short strands may keep heat a bay, but make no doubt about it, this summer hairstyle is nothing but hot!

summer-hairstyles-for-short-hair short-hairstyles-for-summer-2014

Summer Haircuts for Long Hair

Simply Long Layers

Just because it’s summer, doesn’t mean all hair should lose length.

If you’re a long-haired beauty looking to change things up, add some long, face-framing layers!

summer-hairstyles-for-long-hair summer-haircuts-for-long-hair

Long Side Bangs with Layers

Is just long layers too boring for you?

Try adding side-swept bangs for the perfect match to your long layers. Note: Save the bold, blunt bangs for fall – sweaty bangs are 1) annoying 2) dreadful.

Fall 2013 Hair Trends

Bronde!

Also known as the perfect combination of brown and blonde hues, bronde is perfect for darker haired clients who want to try out a lighter color, or for those typically blonde clients who desire a darker shade of blonde.

Bronde hair color can take many forms and can have ashy or golden undertones. The best way to achieve the bronde hair color for your clients is to stay lighter through the face and ends with well-blended highlights, creating a subtle ombre look.

Fall 2013 Hair Color #6: Honey Blondes!
Fall 2013 Hair Trends

The perfect middle ground between a butter blonde and a bronde hair color is honey blonde!

Honey blonde hair color was first popularizd by Jennifer Aniston in the mid 2000s and is definitely making another comeback!

Honey blonde hair color is characterized by predominantly warm hues, paired with well-placed, toned highlights. As a cousin of the bronde hair color trend, this look is best achieved with your ombre/balayage technique.

Fall 2013 Hair Color #7: Chocolate Caramel!
Fall 2013 Hair Trends

Perfect for your naturally dark leveled clients, chocolate brown paired with warm copper highlights through the mid shaft and ends is a gorgeous fall hair color.

Consider doing a full head of micro-highlights or a well-blended ombre to achieve this delectable fall beauty. These techniques will also maximize their color service, as regrowth tends to stay darker through the winter months with less sun.

Celebrities that pull this fall hair color off flawlessly are: Jessica Alba, Mila Kunis, and Megan Fox.

Fall 2013 Hair Color #8: Neutral Browns!
Fall 2013 Hair Trends

To really bring hair back to life after a summer of sun and heat, is a dark, rich neutral brown hair color!

No need to add any highlights for this one, this sleek and sexy hair color will draw from summer’s lighter pieces to create a shiny, multidimensional look.

This hair color is perfect for those clients desiring to go darker in fall, and don’t necessarily want warm/copper hues.

Celebs that wear this hair trend perfectly are Jessica Biel and Adriana Lima!

Fall 2013 Hairstyles
Fall 2013 Hair Style #1: Loose Waves
Fall 2013 Hair Trends

We’re not talking beach waves, ladies!

Loose, polished waves are in!

Fall and winter is a time to let your hair shine and not embrace the frizz! Smooth, loose waves can come in all shapes and sizes, and can be worn casually with knitted hats or at formal fall events.

Fall 2013 Hair Style #2: Texturized bobs!
Fall 2013 Haircuts

Although fall is perfect long hair weather, not everyone will opt to keep their locks long.

In come the texturized bobs!

This adorable fall haircut is low maintenance and is complemented by your fall ombre color palette.

Celebs that know how to rock the messy bob are Ashley Greene, Jennifer Lawrence, and ScarJo!

Fall 2013 Hair Style #3: Sleek and Straight!

There has been a lot of talk lately about Iron Man 3 star, Gwyneth Paltrow’s home (non) beauty regimen. She has a carefree, natural look and spirit to match. Plus she was voted People Magazine’s World’s Most Beautiful Woman! In Iron Man 3 Gwyneth plays Tony Stark’s love interest Pepper Potts. At the Iron Man 3 premiere Gwyneth looked stunning as ever with her sleek. blonde locks and couture style. Traditional haircare and styling products with sulfates, parabens and plastics are detrimental to maintaining a clear, crystalline blonde. Sulfates can make color appear dull and lack luster. While, parabens and plastics will create buildup that will make the hair look lifeless and weight it down. Not to mention, that parabens when absorbed through the pores and compounded in the body can mimic estrogen. So the path to healthy, natural looking blondes is to seek out hair products free from these ingredients.
