We look back at our 5 favourite looks from the season:
Mandy Moore got a head start on her fall hair style! Her chocolate brown base tone is already beautiful to begin with, but Moore’s colorist Nikki Lee describes these freshly done highlights as an “autumn glow,” and we agree — not only is this rich, warm tone a natural-looking transition shade, but it will look positively golden whenever it happens to catch a hint of sunlight.
Plus, since this glossy golden colour is so subtle, it will grow out seamlessly. So if you’ve been itching to update your hairstyle but still prefer something ultra low-maintenance, you’ll want to reference this look at your next appointment with your colourist.
What better time to experiment with wild, fun colours than in the summer?! If you’ve found yourself lusting over the rainbow hair trend that’s taken up our feeds this past year (but can’t quite muster up the courage to make the full plunge), do the next best thing: dye just the tips, like Taylor Swift has for her new album Lover. In the last month alone, we’ve seen her sport blue, yellow, and pink tips.
This is a great hair trend to play with. Why? Because by the time you grow bored of your rainbow tips, your hair will have grown enough inches to easily chop off the colour — just in time for your fall/winter look.
Which girl hasn’t ever occasionally dreamt of transforming her look with a platinum blonde ‘do? We love Katy Perry’s sculpted, shorter locks this past summer that have been blow-dried to pin-straight perfection. Her grown out bangs frame her face and show off her facial features, while her blunt ends give off the appearance of thick, healthy hair.
While this style is absolutely stunning, the sharp cut and platinum-cream shade both require regular upkeep. Still, if you can commit to monthly trims and toning treatments, then this dreamy lob just may be in your future!
Lizzie McGuire, is that you? We love seeing Hilary Duff revisit her teenage roots with this gorgeous, free-flowing hairdo! Her long, feathery bangs give her a youthful look while framing her face beautifully. Meanwhile, the ashy blonde tone and loose waves inject a sense of sophistication into her look, in comparison to the cutesy schoolgirl style from her younger Disney days.
For your next appointment at the salon, ask your stylist to pair up your blow-dry with a large barrel brush to bring that glossy, soft movement to your tresses. You’ll also want to book yourself in for regular trims to keep your side swept bangs nice and wispy. Thankfully, trims for your bangs are relatively inexpensive and take no time at all!
Ciara has been playing with all sorts of fun hairstyles this summer! From waist-length locks to pixie cuts to sky-high ponytails, Ciara’s been winning the hair game this summer. Our favourite look is the asymmetrical blunt bob she wore at the 2019 BET Awards, which her stylist Cesar Ramirez described as a “tough cool-girl edge.”
This blunt cut compliments the jaw and neckline as it sits right below Ciara’s chin. If you have a longer facial shape, a deep side part will provide a flattering frame for your features. And as with any shorter cut, you’ll want to come in for a quick trim every 4-6 weeks to maintain this breathtaking, boss-lady ‘do.
