Due to the heat, the abundant travel, time off, or even just the inclusion of “summer Fridays,” the summer season always feels a bit more lackadaisical than the rest. According to the pros, this vibe might be the key to achieving flawless hair color year-round. Be it sun-kissed color or undone looks, we should take a few of these routines with us into fall and winter to make the most of a new season of style.

Sun-Kissed Hair Color Is Having A Moment This Fall & Winter
 

Sun-Kissed Color FTW

Now, more than ever, the goal of hair color is to make it look as natural as possible. Similar to how undone hair has taken over — it still might take a lot of effort to style your hair, but you don’t want it to appear this way to others. To keep up with the trends, stylists must take care when coloring and impart a feather-lite approach to applying highlights.

Tricks of the trade include applying a slightly lighter base shade to the face frame of global color or creating the utmost bespoke approach when painting highlights. The trick is to analyze your client's hair type, cut, and lifestyle before beginning. Taking into account the way the hair falls, exactly where they part their hair and how often they blow dry or wear their hair natural.

Hair Glosses Are Having A Moment

Hair glosses (or glazes or toners) have always risen to popularity during and following the summer months as an answer to faded shades or brassy color. Instead of utilizing them as a fix, they are being prioritized as a regular routine for many all year round. Glosses allow stylists to enhance and perfect many shades with a conditioning formula requiring less commitment. A hair gloss can be used to refine highlights or placed as lowlights to create more contrast.

Find Your Light

The addition of gold in hair color formulations allows the wearer to add an instant lit-from-within glow. While golden shades have always risen to fame during summer, this season, stylists are adding gold to their brunette, blonde and red shades to carry this light into fall and winter. In addition to this, we’ll see deep, rich tones with neutral undertones to allow for maximum impact.
