5 Low-Maintenance Hair Trends for Fall
As the days get shorter and our COVID-19 hair is only getting longer, now is time to switch up your style for the season! With salons around the country starting to reopen, book an appointment and get-in with your stylist for a fall refresh.
According to ColorProof Education Director Erica Conan, “The coronavirus pandemic caused clients to space out the time between appointments like never before. While stylists are working on getting their clients back on a normal appointment schedule, we can expect to see people leaning toward low maintenance styles. Clients are looking to their stylist more than ever for customized advice on which look is best for them. There are so many great styles that are easy to style and still look great as they grow out."
Check out these fall hair trends for a little inspo before your next salon visit…
1. THE BLUNT CUT
So, you’ve been home, and your bob is now a lob? No worries. Rather than cut it, embrace it! Ask your stylist to refresh your shape and trim your ends a for chic and modern look.
Tip: Protect your grown out ends with SuperRich Split Ends Mender.
2. THE MINIMALIST
With a year like 2020, a shorter length might not be enough. For the ultimate low maintenance ‘do pixies and buzz cuts (hello Charlize Theron!) has become the ultimate power move, and sure to turn heads this season. If you want to keep a bit of length on top. Go short with a choppy, pixie style.
Tip: Energize a minimal look with texture and shine using ControlCraze® Styling Crème.
3. CHITTY CHITTY, BANG BANG
The quarantine was extra tough on ladies with bangs. Luckily, longer ‘70s style bangs are trending hard! Don’t feel the pressure to jet back to the salon every couple of weeks for a trim. As your fringe gains length, embrace a curtain bang that allows bangs to part slightly in the middle or sweep them to the side to update your look.
Tip: Use HeatProof® Anti-Frizz Blow Dry Crème on damp hair and roughly blow dry bangs forward. Imperfection is in, so worry about making them too perfect!
4. SHORT LAYERS
Short layers provide the perfect low-maintenance ‘do for girls with natural wave or texture and work with almost any length. With minimal prep, short layers lets you wear your hair natural while delivering body and framing your face.
Tip: Work a dollop of SuperPlump Whipped Bodifying Mousse through damp hair to boost body and define. Use a diffuser or air dry.
5. LONG & LOOSE
Embrace your length achieved during quarantine. Ask your stylist for a trim to clean up the ends and freshen up your layers for movement. As for color, transition into warm ambers, rich chocolatey browns, or for blondes and brondes, add some lowlights to set a new mood for fall.
Tip: For a long and tousled look, use a 1” curling iron or wand to wrap hair from midshafts down. Leave the ends out for a less-polished look. Next, spray TextureCharge Color Protect Texture + Finishing Spray throughout and tousle with fingers.
