Autumn is The Perfect Time To Bring a Little Pop Into Your Look

When you think of Fall, so many amazing colors and gorgeous styles come to mind. From fabulous new accessories, to trendy new boots, cozy sweaters, and of course a bit of recharge & revamp for your own personal look. This is the time of year that we all start to think about the statement that we want to make with our hair & makeup as we host holiday gatherings, and go to all of the many events of the season. So, while you’re giving a boost to your wardrobe, also give some attention to all of the simply chic and super fun styles there are for your hair too. Fall hairstyles for 2013 are full of bold color choices and great cuts for all lengths of hair.

From a personal standpoint, I know that when I start to get the itch to change up my look for the season, a trip to Heath Salon & Spa is an absolute necessity. And this Fall was no different for me. I was beyond ready to bring a freshness into my hairstyle, and I knew that energizing some new color was definitely a part of the plan as well. My starting point is always to see what styles are trending at the moment, and see what may be a good mesh with my own hair type. Regardless of the length of my hair, whether I’m sporting a mid-length or a bit shorter, the style that always seems to work best for me is to have it longer in the front and shorter in the back (basically angled bob-type looks.)

I came across a fabulous pic of Nicole Ritchie (it was actually a toss up, between Nicole’s look and Jessica Simpson’s, but I gravitated more toward Nicole’s) with that same cut and brought it in to stylist, Scarlett Smith, at HSS, and because she has incredible talent with both color and style, she took a peek and got a vision together for what would work best with my hair.

What were her thoughts?? A very similar cut, but a bit shorter, with some bold Fall-feeling color. Ultimately, we went with a Fall Ombre color creation (Ombre’s are still smoking hot for this season) with a dark red graduating into a lighter complimenting color. The picture completely doesn’t do this look justice, the color is so vibrant and the contrast is noticeable, but not overwhelming.

The cut has been so easy to work with, and I’ve been able to get it to look like Scarlett did from day one. And just as a side note, this is a pretty big deal for me, because I hate walking out of a salon and NEVER being able to recreate they look that the stylist accomplished, it drives me crazy!

Plus, I’ve gotten so many fabulous comments on the color. I can’t wait to show it off at upcoming events. Two big “thumbs up” for Scarlett! She did an amazing job, and I felt completely comfortable putting my hair in her hands and, leaving the color expertise totally to her.

Here’s a few tips to when looking for your ideal seasonal hairstyle. 1) Go with what you already love, and amp it up. 2) Don’t set completely unreachable goals, based on your hair type. 3) Find an amazing stylist that has vast experience in color and cut (Heath Salon & Spa has many to choose from!) 4) And be bold enough to be willing to get a little creative with color ~ It’s so much fun & a little adventurous!
