Marmalade Meets Tangerine
It wouldn’t be autumn without a ravishing redhead with copper tones! But forget bold, global colour – this season’s copper is mixing things up with playful undertones of pink and yellow. This mischievous mix creates a delicate, luminous shade, suiting a multitude of skin tones and opening up numerous possibilities to entice your clients into a colour change.
It was inevitable that the meteoric rise to fame of Jenna Ortega, aka Wednesday Addams, would lead to a sharp increase in brunette requests. Incorporating the youthful edge of Ms Ortega, this season’s brunettes will combine glossy healthiness with a grungier, grittier feel – it’s luxe, but with attitude. Transitioning from lighter shades to brunette can also give the impression of added length, contributing to the ultimate transformation and client satisfaction.
As the colder weather creates a desire for heat, expect an increase in demand for warmer shades. Pumpkin Spice certainly encapsulates this movement – think autumn leaves in the muted seasonal sunlight. The best techniques are those that create a natural feeling by giving the hair dimension, particularly through products such as the L’Oréal Professionnel iNOA copper and rosé tones.
The ultimate in beautiful, subtle colour, saturated tones come from a feeling of the autumn dawn. These shades are as light as they are clean – think of the hair as a canvas on which you are creating a stunning watercolour. Products such as L’Oréal Professionnel’s Dia Light Violet Booster can help to perfect this beautiful tone.
Switch the Stitch and Adapt Your Paint
Creating change through adding dimension with artful placement will be a colour-menu-must this season. Featuring placements of deeper opposing shades will give depth and contrast to balayage techniques, allowing negative space to breathe. The secret here is to paint on top of the hair, not underneath it. Highlights should also be stitch-ribboned for veils of colour to pop.
