Shhhhh…..Can you hear it? Right there! It’s the sound of apples ripening, leaves crunching, and pumpkin shows up in everything from baked goods to beauty products nationwide. Which brings us to the Fall Fashion trends for 2013.
The fall fashion runway is always the go to place to get a glimpse into what will be the hottest fashion and even hotter hair and makeup
Let’s talk fashion first.
From Marc Jacobs to Givenchy to Rodarte, one thing is clear: Be bold without being flamboyant and be comfortable while maintaining a figure flattering cut. I’d say the same with hair trends as well.
Knit beanies were a still present show on the runway, along with classic patterns that always look fresh. Over the knee boots are big paired with everything from minis to leggings. I’m so happy as I’ve been dying for a pair myself! Slouchy pants with a tapered ankle are big again. Think ‘you can’t touch this?’ Well, you certainly can in the updated version paired with a thin or strappy heel. Green is THE color of the season! From emerald to army there’s a shade to compliment every skin tone and red hair explodes against it. Winter whites
from head to toe will be icy hot when the heat kicks on. Mixed with those still popular lavender, palest pink, or hint of blue hair color and you have yourself a winter wonderland of style.
And speaking of hair…riotous volume, bouffants, low messy ponytails, braids, plaited, and extreme side parts were ALL
the rage. Even the wet, slick back look made quite a few appearances at the shows. Have fun with these looks. Practice a bit of each in your daily styling. Deep side parts are great if your in the middle of growing out the full bangs from last season. As far as color, some of the biggest were honey blondes, buttery blondes, apricot and strawberry golds. Ombré still gets spotted but unlike its summer sister, the contrast from dark to light is moderate with warmer tones. Rich chocolates with gold multidimensional color and the ultra cool chestnuts are gorgeous as we move into fall.
Makeup up and nail trends the way of bold but deep emeralds and amethysts. Oxblood lips and bordeaux nail tips that
tend to be rounded this season. Lashes for miles with defining eyeliner in your favorite deep bold color. Experiment here, higher end department stores are more than willing to help you with samples or a ‘try on’ for a minimal fee.
Last but certainly not least, we can’t leave our male clients and fans out. We are absolutely loving the modified pompadours! Think Adam Levine and David Beckham. Tom Brady just recently succumbed to that old school, ever debonair look. It really is a classic look that oozes charm, and if you wear your smart readers with that style? Be still my heart! 😉 Messy textured top cuts are perfect for that early 9 a.m. class on the other side of campus. We are seeing lots of soft sleeked back waves too for the guys. Facial hair is kept close and neat. Soft and moisturized! As for fashion, biker jackets are huge. Fitted overcoats and blazers are a must. Pair with a textured scarf as the colder weather approaches. Slim fit pants, not the skinny’s of the last 2 years, but a fitted sleek line that shows your dedication to the gym.
All and all I’m excited to see these trends and styles as we move into my favorite time of year. Mostly, I’m excited to try some of these hair styles and colors on both my clients and myself! Okay, okay….and the knee high boots. And pumpkin flavored everything.
Yours in hair love,
