Fall 2012 Beauty: How to be a trendsetter

 

 

 

I absolutely love Fall. The air is crisp, the leaves are changing, and all my favorite coffee shops add pumpkin spice to their menu. It really is the perfect season. When it comes to Fall beauty, rich healthy hair and skin never goes out of style. Most people who seek beauty advice from someone like me, might believe I’m some kind of genius when it comes to beauty trends. I have a confession. I am not a genius. Not at all. However, I am ALWAYS google searching #Fall20.. #Fall hair and makeup trends #Fall hair color and etc. way before the season begins.

Here are a few ways to stay on top of trends and fool your friends into thinking YOU are the beauty Guru.

STEP ONE: Google—>Online Store Images—>Pinterest

Do your research and find what speaks to you. By searching “Fall trends” and other keywords pertaining to beauty you will find an overwhelming amount of Fall inspired images. I like to save the looks I love in a file or pin them to my pinterest board. Definitely check out your favorite stores online. Since you like the style of clothing you will most likely like or love the hair and makeup they choose for their promotional ads.

STEP TWO: Draw inspiration from New York Fashion Week

 

 

Now, just because a designer decides to put a mask on their models face    doesn’t necessarily mean you should wear one too. Fashion week is an acquired taste. You have to interpret the looks in your own way. For example when I see a ton of texture in the clothing, I would rock a sleek/ polished hairstyle to balance it out or vice versa. ALWAYS be yourself . Trendsetters are trendsetters because they are confident in their choices.

 

 

STEP THREE: SPEND MONEY ON YOUR HAIR & MAKEUP!!

Great Hair Color calls for a Great Colorist. Amazing hairstyles, are the result of products that are gentle on your hair/ skin and work for your hair type. Don’t cut corners when it comes to what goes on your body! Your hair is one of your best accessories, you wear it everyday!

What’s in for Fall 2012

It’s still a sauna outside but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start prepping for Fall style! Here are a few steps to get you started…

STEP ONE: Organize a Swap party with all of your best dressed pals! You will have tons of room in your closet for your new fall wardrobe and help someone less fortunate by donating what’s left after the party! It’s a win-win if you ask me!

STEP TWO: Prepare your hair for richer color with protein treatments. After a Spring and Summer of highlights, chlorine, and sunshine your hair is desperate for strength. Without proteins the hair can not hold onto moisture or color molecules. In my salon I use Original Mineral Power Base. It’s the king of lifts for damaged hair. This intense dual action treatment works to restore your mane from within. Wheat Protein reconstructs weakened hair to bind broken strands while Apricot Kernel Oil and Sweet Almond moisturizes and nourishes the hair’s exterior.

STEP THREE: Pick your Trend piece.

STEP FOUR: FALL for a new Haircolor. The color placement such as the Ombre, Balyage, or traditional highlights can stay the same. The color palette is what will need to change. Think of haircolor this way Spring (Light/Beige/Pastel) Summer (Bright/ cool) Fall (Warm/ Rich) Winter (Dark/ cool)
