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.

Pinterest Problems

The Problems with Pinning!

How-to-Change-Hair-Color-in-Photoshop-Thumb1.jpg

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!

NAHA 2016

We did it, we went for it! The Fresh Salon team entered our work in NAHA, the North American Hairstyling Awards. Not familiar with NAHA? Think Oscars, for hair!

We entered the salon team category, and we did it with flair! But our entry this year is a little different than you might expect.

Fresh stylists created wigs using wood, yarn, feathers, and… even colored coffee filters!

“It was great to try something completely different, using different textures for our craft,” said Fresh Salon Owner Julia Vittorio. “This was a great way for our team to express their creativity and get out of the box,” she said.

NAHA recognizes some of the beauty industry’s most talented artists. At Fresh, we believe that through creating these inspiring wigs, we advance our creative skills to offer you the hottest trends that are soon to grace runways and magazine covers in the coming months.

Low Maintenance Hair

Are you thinking about buying back to school supplies? Decorating your dorm? Finding the perfect first day outfit?

Don’t make a move until you’ve decided on a new hairstyle! This fall, low maintenance, carefree styles are the rage. And there’s no better way to get the look then with one of these fun-loving braids:

  • Milkmaid
  • Double French
  • Crown
  • Fishtail

And just as important as a great low key style, be sure to find a low maintenance color option.

We love the new “Lived In” slow fade.   Lived in is a subtle fade from root to tip. Think of it as the modern update to ombre. Lived in is a sun kissed color method that fades subtly into the ends. Because of the fake set of roots, you won’t get harsh lines separating the roots from the new growth. And Lived In is kind of edgy, the perfect way to start a new school year!

Talk to one of our Fresh stylists about this “slow fade!”

Shag Haircuts

Find Your Perfect Shag

It’s the modern style that makes you sigh with envy when you see it done perfectly. The Shag! It can be worn on short, medium or long hair lengths and will always scream stylish and edgy! We love the way it looks on every hair type.

 

Short Shag

Just because you love your short hair, don’t be afraid to go for a shag. The short shag looks fantastic when it’s stacked at the nape. Leave your bangs longer at the top to give some boost and volume.

 

Medium Shag

Wear it with tapered layers, then lightly tease it along the roots. This light and messy finish will work well with fine hair. The look is disheveled and fun.

 

Long Shag

Wear your shag long with layers that feather throughout your hair. The multiple layers give extra volume and texture. And if you want a look that is natural looking, and effortless, a shag is your answer.
