Color Trends



Back to school. Back to work. Back to routines. It’s almost that time. But as you say goodbye to summer, it’s time to think about that new style you’ll embrace this fall.

We’re seeing plenty of cool trends in hair color. And while you may be tempted to keep your color routine, there are new ways to approach color in the fall of 2016.



Take Color to a new depth: Richer and deeper. That’s the trend we know as Raven Black.   Stars like Selena Gomez and Kendall Jenner have embraced it and rocked it! The look is rich and dramatic.



Creamy Blonde: Think Kirsten Dunst. This beautiful look will get you from summer to fall with the hue you love. Less platinum, creamy blonde is soft and natural looking.




Opposites Attract: Mix it up. In the fall, try dark roots and light hair. It’s an edgy look embraced by Chrissy Teigen and Michelle Williams. Perfect with dramatic lips and eyes, this combo will make a statement.

The Problems with Pinning!


It rolls off our tongues. “I saw it on Pinterest.” And while the pictures, pins and people delight all of us, the truth is, Pinterest is just one way to pick your next style.

Yes, Pinterest is the “go to” for ideas. But it can’t replace a consult with a stylist.

Remember, some of what you see on pinterest is photo shopped. The pictures can be enhanced and changed. That beautiful creamy blonde, may be blue in another picture, and auburn in yet another.

At the end of the day, nothing beats a face-to-face consultation with a Fresh Salon Stylist. We love to see the pictures that show the styles you love, but by actually looking at your hair, and talking to you, we can tell you how realistic it is for you to get the same look. And more importantly, we can keep it real by telling you honestly what you’ll need to do to keep it up and what it will cost to maintain that coveted new style and color.

So come in. Bring your phone. Show us what you’ve pinned. But let’s talk too!

Sun Bun

Think of the newest trend in color as Tie-Dye for your hair. But don’t freak. The Sun Bun is inspiring colorists everywhere.

The concept was created in London and here’s how it works:


Colorists segment pre-lightened strands into little knots on the head. Next, they apply color to each bun. For those who want a lot of color, ask your colorist to simply add more buns and tiny knots, then color each one a little differently.

As you can see, the Sun Bun creates an amazing, fun look for those who love being a edgy!

Protect your color

Summer is coming. And with it, the sun, sand and surf that makes us fall in love with the season. But let’s face it the chlorine and salt water can also play havoc on our hair and our hair color. This summer, don’t let the elements ruin your look, try these ARROJO products and protect your hair.




Protective Thickening Lotion:

We love Protective Thickening Lotion because it thickens hair strands and fattens up limp hair! Great if you’re going to be out in the sun, Protective Thickening Lotion will also guard against breakage that can occur when you’re in salt water and chlorine.





Whipped Treatment:


Clients who have tried ARROJO Whipped Treatment love it. This color-saving product will preserve the shine, luster and tone of your hair color.   Keep your hair healthy, and help your color last a little longer with this deep conditioner.




Healing Oil:

We all love products that do what they say they’re going to do! And that’s why we recommend ARROJO Healing Oil. It will keep your hair looking healthy without weighing it down. Want amazing shine this summer? Try this restorative glossing spray that we refer to as “Miracle Oil!”

2016 Color Trends


Each year Pantone declares the “Color of the Year.” But in 2016, Pantone changed tradition.   For the first time, it declared two colors. Rose Quartz and Serenity will both make an impact in fashion and home décor that we’re already seeing this Spring.

The colors, which are an expression of the mood of the country, can best be described as serene and compassionate. They offer “reassurance,” say fashion experts.

A far cry from the sugary hues of last year, top designers now are focusing on these softer, milky hues, which work well with lightweight fabrics and also fit into the world we live in.

“With our culture still surrounded by so much uncertainty, we are continuing to yearn for those softer shades that offer a sense of calm and relaxation,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Searching for a new look to go with this beautiful color scheme? Talk to your Fresh Salon colorist about subtle highlights and a feminine cut that will complete your own personal style.





Ready for a new trend in color this Spring? It’s called Color-Melting, and it’s perfect if you’re looking to try the latest technique in color that promises beautiful results.



How is color melting different than Ombre or Balayage? The Ombre technique is a freehand process, where hair goes from darker on top to lighter on the bottom. Balayage comes from the French term meaning “to sweep.” It too is a freehand technique, that offers clients a subtle, sun-kissed effect.

But color-melting is the perfect mix of both. It blends highlights with color.


The beauty of color melting is that your stylist can use three or more colors, melting them together to give your color a gradual effect. Through color melting, you can achieve more than just dark and light.
