As the weather turns colder, it’s natural to gravitate towards scarves, pumpkin spice lattes and a darker hair color. Celebrity color authority Rita Hazan shares with us her “Rita-isms” for updating our tresses this fall.
• You don’t need to update your color right away. You can wait until November since it’s still mild outside when the seasons change. Platinum will still be a trend, but with darker roots and some depth. Ombre isn’t going away—but we’ll see more of a sombre (subtle ombre). Crazy colors will be more vibrant and less pastel.
• Trends for fall and winter will be subtle tones with very natural highlights on a rich color base. A chocolate base with butterscotch highlights or a golden blonde base pairs well with sun-kissed highlights. These looks add warmth and give the illusion of bronzed skin.
• Gradually transition color by using a gloss or get lowlights to add warmer tones to your hair. You shouldn’t make a dramatic change like blonde to honey blonde—just go darker. Not being in the sun as much will also naturally help your color become darker. A product like Ultimate Shine Color Gloss is perfect to add warmth throughout the season and help extend the life of your color between salon visits.
• Colder temperatures dry out hair and the best thing to do is a treatment once or twice a week—even sleeping with it on overnight can help add moisture and prevent dryness. The new Weekly Remedy at-home conditioning treatment instantly hydrates and repairs hair inside out, while enhancing and preserving color.
