Who says highlights were reserved for summer?
Don't let your wardrobe be the only aspect of your look that gets an update this fall. If you're looking to add a little something special to your locks, consider trying one of the season's hottest highlighting trends. Whether you're a brunette looking to add a little heat to her hair with some fiery crimson or a blonde who wants to go lighter as the temperatures dips, there's a perfect for you! We spoke with hairdresser and L'Oréal Professionnel Artist Daniel Jones to learn more about fall's trending looks for brunettes and blondes.
Bright, Brilliant Blondes
Blonde hair naturally gets darker when the summer comes to an end, but it doesn't have to stay that way. "Thanks to Smartbond, 'Power Blondes' are having a moment," Jones shares, calling this desire to lighten locks during the fall months an amazing act of rebellion against the norm. Smartbond is L'Oréal Professionnel's exclusive bond strengthening system that protects and strengthens the hair during technical services. With Smartbond, your hairdresser will be able to take your blonde to a whole new level of bombshell. Be sure you ask for it at your next appointment!
Crimson Balayage Brunettes
Who says the leaves are the only ones that get to revel in all things red this season? Brunettes can add deep red balayage to their ends to create an unexpected-but very in-season-pop of color. "There's this movement right now where we're seeing warmer tones in hair," Jones explains. "The trend is leading us into golds, reds, roses, and mauves." Talk with your hairdresser to come up with the perfect blend of red and brown for you and your overall look. "The best part about this bold, fun look is that it doesn't have an age bracket," Jones says. "The color is great for a career woman who wants to play with the versatility of her look."
Protecting your Highlights
Jones says that the best part about Smartbond is that it's not just for blondes. Redheads, brunettes, and all shades of the rainbow can benefit from this bond strengthening treatment. "I'm able to color so much faster and push so much harder than before, all while preserving the integrity of the hair," he says. At home, Jones recommends a shampoo and conditioner formulated for color-treated hair like Serie Expert Vitamino AOX. This will give your hair the moisture it needs without weighing it down and allow you to experiment with the latest trends while maintaining shiny, beautiful, healthy hair!
