Fall 2010 Hair Cuts
This seasons hair cuts still allow easy styling while becoming a little less put together. We see hair getting longer as we move into fall. No matter what your hair desire, your cut always should be adapted to your individual style. Show off your texture this fall!
The bob with bangs make this classic style modern and flattering to the persons wearing it. A low maintenance/ high fashion look. With the additional length, the bob becomes lower maintenance and easier to style. Beautiful examples of the longer Bob this fall are Eva Longoria & Reese Witherspoon. To recreate in a few minutes; Shampoo, apply a thermal protection product and a foundation product for hold (light, medium something to add texture), blow dry moving the hair across the head in both directions making sure to smooth the root area while giving some direction to the bangs, light finishing product to keep the ends smooth and you are ready! For fall think not so polished, create soft texture.
Shag/ Long Layer
The 70’s shag we saw in the spring is sticking around for the fall with all of the “Choppy Layers”. Always a versatile and sexy look, this cut is for texture lovers. This influence we see merged with the Bob to create the “Shaggy Bob”. Long or short bangs can be worn with this cut to compliment the face. Consistent with the texture present in this look the Bangs have a lot of texture too. Some celebrities wearing this look are Crystal Hunt and Faith Hill. To style the shag; shampoo, apply a thermal protecting product and a foundation product for medium to strong hold for best texture results, Blow-dry with your hands. Focus on the root area, creating lift at scalp first. Finish by positioning the texture intentionally to compliment the overall look, spray with light to medium hold hairspray & you are ready! For longer versions you can do Farrah Faucet like waves to complete the look.
The pixie with a longer front fringe, for fall 2010, this beautiful look is low maintenance, always fashionable and bold. In combination with the longer angled bangs this look will keep heads turning through the holidays. Working with texture creams this look will dry quickly and style easily looking fabulous this season. Some of the best examples of the pixie are Rhianna & Katie Holmes. To recreate this style; shampoo, apply a prep product for thermal protection, a foundation product for hold (light, medium, or strong hold), blow dry using your hands moving the hair in the direction you want it to finish in making sure to work the root area while giving some direction to the ends, light finishing product to keep the texture and you are ready!
Fall 2010 Hairstyles
Looking for the hottest hairstyles and hair trends for Fall 2010? We have them all right here with detailed information on each style and how to make it work for you.
Hairstyling this season has a purpose with a natural texture theme. Choose a new look from the list of hair styles below.
Flat Ironed Chignon
The chignon is polished & loose to the head. A fashionable look that is easy to re-create. This look was shown at the Calvin Klein show. To style this look flat iron the hair. Pull the hair into a low ponytail. Keep the hair smooth and fold back into itself then secure with bobby pins.
The bun itself is clean and contemporary. The Classic Bun is great for all occasions. A great example of this was from the BCBG shows this season. The look was chic for everyday and yet contemporary enough for formal occasions. To style the Classic bun; put your hair in a ponytail, high to low. Then twist your hair, hold it like that, and wrap it around the base of your ponytail (where the elastic is). Then secure it with another elastic and a few bobby pins. We recommend getting small and large bobby pins for extra security. Use accessories to create personal style.
The Pompadour, a beautiful look especially taken from Fendi’s show for fall. Gel and products with a stronger hold will work in creating this look. Style by blow-drying with volume, even with your head upside down, lift that root area. Secure the hair up into the crown area, backcomb everything up, smooth the hair a little, not too much you want that backcombed texture. Then twist the hair and secure with pins.
Retro Curls & Waves
Retro looks inspired hairstyles for fall 2010. Loose with deliberate direction. At Dior, the ’30s-inspired waves recall the Hollywood glamour of Jean Harlow. For longer hair looks softer Farrah Fawcett waves are a great look for an everyday style or something quick before a night out with the ladies. To create this look; section the hair into 2” sections and apply a medium hold texture product. Using a smaller curling iron, curl the hair. As you work toward the top of the head loosen the curl or switch to a larger iron. When finished pull and push the curl or even brush where needed to mold the hair into place.
For those of you wanting to show off your stunning features the ponytail is for you. This look was shown at the Louis Vuitton and Max Azria shows this season. To get the look gather all of your hair low to medium in the back of the head. After the ponytail is secure, spray a wet or working hairspray into your hands and while the product is still damp run your hands over the hair in the same direction you did when gathering it into the ponytail. This will keep the look Sleek while taming all the fly aways.
Fall 2010 Hair Color
Changing hair color, for most of us, is the easiest way to keep our current look updated without changing the cut. For fall keeping your hair color healthy and current is as easy as cooling and deepening the pre-existing tones.
You can still do your overall base color at home! However if you are working with any dimension, accents, or highlights you will need to schedule those salon visits now. For those of you really willing to learn how to do it all your self, check out tips on Herbal Essence. Clairol also has a huge selection of colors and styling tools to help you.
Reds this fall, keep it cool. Add cool tone highlights/ accents to create an updated look. We recommend a natural red, still bold, still strong, but natural. Clairol Herbal Essence Color, 048.5 Spicy Ginger-deep Intense Copper or Clairol Balsam Lasting Color Locking Creme System, Dark Auburn 613 are two beautiful shades for this fall. We also like Clairol Haircolor, Auburnin’ Hot – Auburn 35.
For those of you who love your blonde, no worries, cool it down with a few strategically placed low lights. To keep the look natural deepen the blonde just a little to keep it looking natural. Here are some natural looking blondes for fall. We recommend Clairol Hydrience Haircolor, Seashell 010 or Clairol Hydrience Haircolor, Sand Dollar 012. For those of you with color in your hair book an appointment with a professional for a partial high light & glaze.
For fall Brunettes deepen the base color and keep some of the summer brunette tones as a highlight. The best way to do this is to have a professional work their magic. If you are doing this on your own and feel confident, section out some hair into foils with conditioner and use the darker color on hair not in foils. Then use another color on the hair in foils to get a shiny/ healthy color. We recommend Clairol Balsam Lasting Color Color Locking Creme System, Darkest Brown 616 1 system or Clairol Balsam Lasting Color Locking Creme System, Dark Ash Brown 614.
