Just because you have to trade in the sandals for booties and the bikinis for turtlenecks, doesn't mean you have to trade in your favorite haircuts, styles, and colors now that summer is coming to an end. Below, we share the Summer 2016 hair trends that we think will definitely last through fall!
Soft lavender, dusty rose, stonewashed blue, these shades have dominated spring and summer and we can bet fall and winter will be no exception. "Pastel looks great on any texture and any skin tone," says hairdresser and L'Oréal Professionnel Artist Jason Backe. "That's just one reason why the trend is lasting." Whatever shade of pastel you choose-we're partial to silvery greys-be sure to take care of it at home with hydrating hair products formulated for color-treated hair.
"It's been an interesting time for hair," says expert stylist and L'Oréal Professionnel Ambassador Yureesh Hooker. "Look at any magazine, everyone has a natural texture. When I first started doing hair it was all about the flat iron, but now, what a time to capitalize on what you naturally have. It's your time to shine, it's your time to have an easy time with your hair." Natural textures-whether they be straight, wavy, or curly-will continue to reign supreme as we head into the chillier seasons. We share Hooker's tips on how to embrace your natural hair here.
Even though we have to pack up the bathing suits, we don't have to say goodbye to beachy hairstyles we've loved all summer-think: beach waves, fishtail braids, and sun-kissed highlights. These summer-inspired hair trends give you an effortless, beach babe vibe all year long and that vibe is always in style. Reach for sea salt texturizing sprays to give you those ocean-side waves and book a color appointment at your local L'Oréal Professionnel salon for Flash Sunkiss highlights which leave you locks looking like you spent a whole month lounging on the French Riviera.
