Today we’re talking about the hottest new trends this fall is bringing us when it comes to hair styles. I’m plucking the latest hair styles and colors, straight from the runways and red carpets so that you can all look like stars in the season ahead.
Best shades for this fall
Freshly out of hair color ideas for this season? No problem, we’ll get that inspiration going, whether you’re into an all-over dye, subtle highlights or simply ombre. We’ll cover everything, from glossy chocolate brown Jourdan Dunn is currently flaunting, to chic honey highlights, property of Alexa Chung.
Let’s see the “right now” of hair colors:
Warm brown colors emerged as a pretty potent look this fall. That’s why we’re all witnessing the
Nothing beats those mid-winter blues like a new haircut. These fresh-for-2015 styles are cool, flattering and easy to get at your local salon if you know what to ask for. TODAY.com asked three all-star experts — celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson, Devachan expert Rick Mahoney and Vanessa Douglas of Louis Licari salons — for the best cuts and how to communicate what you want to your hairstylist.
The expert: Celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson, who works with Lupita Nyong’o, Taylor Schilling and Ariana Grande — and takes his more than 97,000 Instagram fans with him behind the scenes.
The hot new cut: Super-long and layered
“There’s something about long, sexy hair that will never go out of style,” says Gibson. “This haircut is back for 2015, but this time the hair is super long,” à la Sofia Vergara at this year’s SAG Awards.
How to ask for it: “Ask your stylist for soft layers around the face to give this haircut movement and a little touch of sexy. Va va voom!” Don’t have the length just yet? Gibson says: “Don’t be afraid to let your hair grow out, or even experiment with extensions.”
The hot new cut: Wavy “baby bob”
“Last year’s lob (long bob) is out. This year it’s all about the wavy baby bob!” reveals Gibson. Ciara, Anne Hathaway and, most recently, Emma Stone at the Golden Globes are wearing it right now. Why? “This cut is youthful, super fashionable and goes with any look. Whether your hair has a slight wave to it or a tight coil, the textured baby bob is a look you’ll be seeing a lot this year.”
How to ask for it: Be precise about the length you’re going for: “This haircut lies in-between the chin and the shoulders,” says Gibson. And don’t ask for smooth and sleek. “The fashion part of it is the texture!”
The hot new cut: ‘70s-style fringe
A-list crowd warming up deep browns and darkening their blonde. Cameron Diaz comes to mind as a perfect illustration. Rich auburn tones are a serious envy (anyone thinking of Emma Stone right now?), so are the blonde nailing celebs. Platinum shade that’s January Jones rocking around is simply to die for.
If you’re in the mood for a little drama this fall, why not go a complete color change. Reese Witherspoon certainly pulled it off. She went from blonde to dark brown, and I loved it. If you’re going for an instant full look update, new hair hue is simply the perfect way to do it and get away with it. Just be careful and try to complement your eye color and skin tone with your new shade.
