Blonde Hair at Fashion Week dictates the trend for upcoming season!
As the days get shorter and the sun is less likely to get its due worship many women seek darker hair to compensate for their absence of beautifully bronzed complexions. This is a very common misconception.“Blonde Hair is
In This Fall” Fashion week dictates the trend for the upcoming seasons and last March, New York and Los Angeles displayed to us blonde hair, blonde hair, blonde hair and the occasional red head. Prada showed us delicate lace draped models. Alexander McQueen displayed vibrant reds, silvers, and bombastic blues betrothing sensual red heads. So how does this translate to everyday life? Immense use of these broad color palettes have been used in every local retailer so far as we’ve seen, so the tradition of going darker with our locks is a farce for fall.
So where is this trend guiding us? Golden blonde hair, it’s your time to sing. Scream to those brunettes “brassy is back.” You may not be able to pull off those platimumesque blonde hair tones, like our good southern women are hooked on, but you can tone it down without turning it off. Try going a bit more golden with your blonde hair, or even a champagne tone to keep that beautiful blonde hair bubbly.
If blonde hair isn’t ambitious enough for you, don’t be afraid to reach for the red, just make sure the color saturates the hair enough so that it won’t look foggy or thin throughout the fading process. Red is the least fade resistant hair color, that is, it fades out of the hair the quickest of all hair colors. The technical reason is that red is the smallest color molecule resulting in it falling out of the hair at a very rapid rate.
So if you’re going red, it definitely calls for periodic use of a good pigmented conditioner, like Aveda Madder Root Conditioner. Make sure you use the conditioner especially because the proteins in it act like a transfer agent allowing the pigment to stick to the hair shaft keeping your red hair radiant. Just be sure to follow the directions on all pigmented conditioners and to choose the right shade for your hair color.
So, this fall complement that expensive looking garb with equally expensive looking hair color with vivid contrast to keep from looking like the ominous fall brown bore.
