It’s my favorite time of the year—fall and winter! I love the colder weather; those of us in the warmer parts of the country finally (finally) say goodbye to humidity; the palette, whether we’re talking wardrobe or wine(!), moves into rich, deep shades of burgundy and gold, and everything feels festive. Not to mention your hair always looks its best in chilly temps! Which means it’s time to forget totally casual beach hair and ponytails and switch it up to warmer shades and more stylized cuts. Here, my top six styles and colors to move you into the new season...
1) Kylie Jenner’s rich color!
Kylie’s classic dark brown with subtle highlights is incredibly flattering on almost all skin tones. These shades add warmth to the skin and help your makeup pop.
2) Kerry Washington’s rocker-chic bangs!
Yes, loving this look for winter! Bangs help frame your face and they look good on women of all ages.
3) Debra Messing’s fun and flirty red!
Ginger, chestnut, apple red—sounds like ingredients for a Thanksgiving menu! They are some of the most beautiful shades for your hair color. Reds are always fun and flirty; adding a deep brown with rich chestnut achieves a vibrant look with gorgeous depth.
4) Miley Cyrus’s punky pixie!
Go short like Miley! One of my favorite looks is a classic pixie. This updated version mixes longer side fringe with choppy spiky layers.
5) Daisy Ridley’s classic waved bob!
The bob is back, a little longer and looser! Daisy is totally on point for 2018 by adding very stylized, romantic curls.
6) Jessica Biel’s gorgeous highlights!
Highlights done with what’s called a balayage (“paint” or “sweep” in French) technique are going to be one of the hottest hair color trends for 2018 and I am on board! Instead of the most obvious highlights of the past, this look is achieved with vertical twists of brown and blonde shades that are seamlessly blended into each other.
