As we look through Davines' forecast collection for fall, we see a lot of the color trends that we talked about last week. The blue/ jet black brunettes, golden blondes and feisty redheads. Another thing we notice about this collection are the bold cutting trends for this fall.
First big trend, fringe. Lots of short, bold fringe. Used to either create or soften edges on the face, fringe is a great way to add something new to your existing cut. Cut wispy bangs into an existing shag, and you've got a little more drama added to your look. Cut straight bangs into an A line cut to add some more flavor.
The second trend we are seeing, extreme layering. A modern twist on the already stylist shag, lots of texture gives you a rock n' roll meets beach babe look. Texture is also a great transitioning technique for those of use growing out shorter hair. Add texture to a bob and it becomes a mid length cut!
Lastly, in all of the cuts this season we are seeing an emphasis on shape. Sharp angle, short bobs, long straight hair, round layering and texture for curly hair. Lots of extremes in all direction.
The leaves may be dying, but we are not. Add something, cut something, do something differently. Davines named this collection correctly, because this season is all about your inner "Rebel". Take advantage of this transitional season, we can't wait to help you take the plunge.
As the leaves change colors, so do we. This autumn inspires a new twist on our summer blondes, brunette and redheads. With fashion heading the direction of 90's grunge, we see some reoccurring themes from both the 70s and 90's this season.
First up, the buttery blonde. Forget your icy, cool, basically grey blonde. And say hello to being a golden goddess. The underrated Golden blonde makes its way into couture ads this season, we are also seeing the trend in the salon. Why do we love this look? Going warmer does excellent things for your complexion. Warmer colors reflect more light, helping you not look so washed out. If you stay warmer, a platinum or bright blonde will be shiny and healthier looking.
The brunette trend this season is a jet black sombre. A play on the fall trend for blondes last year, the brunettes give this familiar trend an interesting approach. Starting at the root with a dark "jet black" and melting into a light but still dark brunette allows you to have the intensity you've been searching for. The depth help makes the ends seem like a highlight without crossing over into the bronze, blonde family. Always a fan of a good sombre!
Last but not least, our Redheads. This season is all about one thing- COPPER. This trend we have seen in many forms. Blondes going more strawberry, brunettes adding some copper highlights or those really taking the plunge into a deep cherry red all over. Although I love the variety, I'm all about this yellow-orange we are seeing. Rarely do we see people brave enough to try copper out, but when they do, it works. The most common mistake is not going bright enough, do it! We know you'll love it. Why should gingers have all the fun?
So this season is about extremes. Extreme depths and extreme warmth. If extreme isn't your thing or seems intimating, try babylights along your part line or add some face framing highlights. Stepping out of your hair comfort zone is the best thing you've done all year, why not try it this fall!
