Cold Brew Hair

After the cream soda and pink lemonade hair color crazes, we thought we’d seen the last of trends inspired by our favorite beverages—then cold brew hair came along.

For cold brew hair color, your colorist will create a multi-dimensional brown using highlights and lowlights in neutral and golden shades.

Flannel Hair

Flannel hair is one of the hottest hair trends this fall—literally. To create flannel hair, your colorist will blend together warm shades of copper, deep red, wine, and auburn. Depending on your skin tone, your stylist will determine what take on flannel hair look will work best for you.

If you do decide to go red, we love the Redken Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner system. This color protecting shampoo improves hair strength to prevent against breakage and provides maximum vibrancy of color treated hair.

Shadow Hair

If you’re looking for a low-maintenance hue, ask your colorist for shadow hair. Similar to a balayage highlights, the shadow hair trend consists of a gradient effect that starts with dark roots and transitions into lighter tones from your mid-lengths to ends. Since your root color will be similar your natural hue, you can say goodbye to constant touch-ups.

Move over sunny blonde hair—icy hues are back. Ready to take on an frosty look this fall? Before you do, you’re going to need a few killer hair care products.

Since achieving an icy hair color can do a number on your strands, we suggest investing in a hair mask like the Matrix Total Results Miracle Creator Nourishing Strengthening Mask. The mask restores, protects and strengthens strands with an intensely moisturizing hair treatment formula for color-treated or natural hair.
