With day-to-night dominating the runways, hair has to move fluidly from one situationto another. Cropped bobs (think earlobe length) with subtle wisps, bowl cuts and undercuts, roll ups, ponies, and undone braids make the transition easy! For the curly girl, they are rocking big afro’s and natural texture is a mainstay trend. Long-haired girls are separating the hair from the ears up into buns and braids while leaving the under hair “stretched” waved or crimped. Parts come from the far side or sit in the middle. Popular Fall hair accessories include glittery headbands, sparkly barrettes, and crossed over hairpins.
Color melting techniques remain strong trends this season because they gradually shift shades from subtle to dramatic. The vivid hair colors or pastels are still top trends. Electric-shaded and candy-colored streaks are being placed underneath longer lengths. For the lower maintenance girl, rooty blonde hues and baby lights (lots of super skinny platinum high lights weaved into your base color) seem to be doing the trick. In between traditional and exceptional, red is a favorite in hues like pumpkin spice, brunettes are adding deep purple streaks and blondes are getting swirls of lilac, pink, or blue.
For the more conservative, traditional nude and black polishes are on their way out and transition colors like neutrals, browns, and gray tones are in. For the more daring, go bold with your nails! It’s all about high-contrast and high-impact color. These shades are not gently blended. They’re boldly swathed across the nail in bands, triangles, and other geometric shapes. Glitter polish is being replaced by much-easier-to-remove metallics and chromes. The easiest trend to follow, changing up your manicure’s finish! This is popular because it’s incredibly subtle, and creates textures that reflect off of light. We love it because you only need to change your topcoat to either a matte or a high-shine finish.
It’s never been easier or prettier to step outside of your makeup comfort zone. You can keep it simple with a clear skin, minimalist eye and nude lip. Subtle blush is a year round must—this season add a touch to your cheeks in the exact same color they turn when it’s chilly outside or use bronzers on your cheeks instead blush. The eyes take center stage with beautiful metallic and mauve shadows, monochromatic sunset shadows, dramatic winged or smudged eyeliner, and jewel toned smokey eye patterns. With neon pigments, dark shades and two-tone, this seasons lips are bold—bright berries, browns, casual red.
The popular colors are mauve, rose and red! 80’s inspired velvet and fur, neutral plaids and checks, embroidery and patchwork, voluminous statement sleeves and fringe, political slogan tee’s, frayed denim, dressy track pants, wide leg pants, earring jackets, circle shaped handbags, puffer coats and shearling outerwear, pops of disco inspired silver and gold, floral prints, leather pants and skirts, criss cross tie accents on dresses and shirts.
The quiff is in! As one of the most versatile hairstyles for men out there, the men’s quiff can sit well with both casual looks as well as smarter alternatives. Use a wax or pomade to slick back your hair and brush it back with a comb. Blow dry it backwards for extra volume. The middle parting sees the ultimate 90’s style coming back. The middle parting is a classic and easy style to create and uphold. Not really suited to everyone, a middle parting is most flattering for guys with angular or oval face shapes and relatively straight hair. The side parting is not too dissimilar to the middle parting, however, you part your hair to the side!
