The shift from golden Indian summer into the warm embrace of autumn is one of my favorite times of year.
The cozy sweaters come out, fireplaces begin to glow and I can bike without breaking a sweat (sort of).
But the best part is, everyone wants new hair color!
Here are my favorite formulas and techniques for this season:
This is a rich, delicious brunette for the girl who wants a better-than-natural brown.
How do you make a brown not just brown? Add more brown!
Mixing opposing tones creates a luxurious brunette that is never boring.
Café Au Lait
A classic, sophisticated blonde is as timeless as throwing on a cashmere sweater, cuddled up with a cup of coffee.
Placing lowlights under back-combed slices of lightness creates a pop and makes the blonde appear even brighter.
I used AGEbeautiful Demi Permanent 6N in the back for a crisp brown that makes the blonde look even brighter and slowly added AGEbeautiful Demi Permanent Clear Shine as I got towards the top and front. This elegant yet lived-in technique is the perfect end of summer look.
A lot of people are adjusting their usual gray coverage routine with different ways of embracing your silver.
My Mom was quarantined in Costa Rica for most of this year leading to a very grown out gray.
While I have major renovation ideas up my sleeve, for this we just wanted to kill that yellow on her ends.
Painting AGEbeautiful Topcoat Toner in Silver Ash Blonde knocked out the yellow and turned let-it-go gray into polished silver.
What feels more fall-like than pumpkin spiced anything?
The secret to pumping up the heat in this look is to increase your developer and shade as you go down the hair shaft.
