Autumn Hair Hues for the Blondes; your hair needs to get ready for autumn too!
Summer has quite slipped away fully and September is in play with autumn very much in the air –or may we say hair? We know those sun-kissed, beach lover highlights really bring the fun of the warmer months but when the leaves start to turn up, many of us start to look for something refined, even the fun-loving blondes! Enter: autumn hair hues for the blondes.
Planning for coloring
The popular hairdresser and stylist Andrew Jose tells that the colour changes cannot always happen fast so the benefit of planning a few weeks or months ahead is a more successful alteration. He also says that it is important to work towards a goal if you wish to gradually change your hair for the coming season.
Of course, the planning process – and how long it takes – will depend on the final result that you are looking to get, but allowing time will ensure that your desired outcome can be met as successfully as possible, with the least amount of damage done.
We suggest that you consider the first step will be to swap a half-head of highlights to a T-section or babylights if you are considering bringing more of your natural colour or autumnal tones into the highlighted hair. This will allow for some extra growth through of your natural hair without showing the re-growth at the root areas of your hair.
Treating your hair
If it is actually a brighter blonde that you have in mind – but perhaps a sleeker version than the balayage trend of the summer – then it is important to build up to it by gradually increasing the amount of highlights. This will allow time for re-conditioning treatments, which are essential to keeping hair healthy when blonding.
A gradual process is also what Jose advises his clients take when going darker, rather than an overnight change, recommending building up lowlights and reintroducing your natural or desired colour in stages, so the change and contrast isn’t so drastic.
