tumblr_ne2t651y2y1r1jmizo1_500Today we’re talking about the hottest new trends this fall is bringing us when it comes to hair styles. I’m plucking the latest hair styles and colors, straight from the runways and red carpets so that you can all look like stars in the season ahead.

Best shades for this fall

Freshly out of hair color ideas for this season? No problem, we’ll get that inspiration going, whether you’re into an all-over dye, subtle highlights or simply ombre. We’ll cover everything, from glossy chocolate brown Jourdan Dunn is currently flaunting, to chic honey highlights, property of Alexa Chungtumblr_mqx6ivLNdw1scs5tgo1_500tumblr_nddjrl9zPE1qm3f6so1_1280Let’s see the “right now” of hair colors:

Warm brown colors emerged as a pretty potent look this fall. That’s why we’re all witnessing the A-list crowd warming up deep browns and darkening their blonde. Cameron Diaz comes to mind as a perfect illustration. haircolor-trends-2015 (2)Rich auburn tones are a serious envy (anyone thinking of Emma Stone right now?), so are the blonde nailing celebs. Platinum shade that’s January Jones rocking around is simply to die for. hairstyles-trends-2015 (23)tumblr_n3it84017C1t5lw1oo1_1280If you’re in the mood for a little drama this fall, why not go a complete color change. Reese Witherspoon certainly pulled it off. She went from blonde to dark brown, and I loved it. If you’re going for an instant full look update, new hair hue is simply the perfect way to do it and get away with it. Just be careful and try to complement your eye color and skin tone with your new shade. celebrity=haircolor-transfoBold colors have grown in popularity recently. Pioneers of this trend are certainly Nicole Richie and Chloe Norgaard. Their ‘dos are ever-changing, and I think they speak for themselves.

If you’re not completely sure which color is for you, you can always opt for a dye that’s semi-permanent, or go for an ombre look that’s a bit more subtle. Just print out the hair color of your favorite celebrity and head straight to your hairdresser. If you’re brave enough, you can try to do your hair dye yourself. I’ll admit first I wouldn’t muster the courage for this in a million years. nicole-blue-hair22014 AOL NewFronts - ArrivalsLet’s get specific! Let’s talk about the hair colors that seal the deal for us this season:

Red hair – It’s sought after very highly, especially with Emma Stone being the worldwide favorite girl crush and simply dominating with her luscious auburn locks. As seen on many Hollywood bombshells, red hair carries some serious sex appeal and elegance. Look at Scarlet Johansson and her long layered haircut and tell me I’m wrong. So whether your coppery locks are natural, or you’re considering the “out of the bottle option”, you can look at our stunning celebs for a plethora of ideas. The secret of the red hair’s beauty, putting extraordinary and unusual tones aside, is how much the make-up and complexion affect the overall look. hairstyles-trends-2015 (24)hairstyles-trends-2015 (14)75a56b53b99824e141aa7b9b4e218c7bChristina Hendricks will keep her porcelain complexion tan-free and natural, with a slick of red lipstick to make her a wow-worthy sight. Isla Fisher will match her dark red hair with a warmer skin tone for the overall more sunned appearance. c80456b216b8cbe512e27fa0d7b4c20fcc422d0e8b83cfcd24115685677547faBrown hair – It’s a tempting choice to embrace the dark side seeing Emma Watson, Alexa Chung and Mila Kunis with their dark brown shades that are more than lust-worthy. Inspiration is abundant.

You can go for the deepest ebony or the warmest mocha, au naturel or dip dye, the most stunning dark brown shades are yours to explore. Emma Watson carries long, glossy locks in very chic updos for her red carpet events. Alexa Chung still rules when it come to brunette beadhead, and straight and shiny goes well with Mila Kunis. Short crops, glamorous updo or beachy waves are the styles to go for, depending on the occasion. hairstyles-trends-2015 (4)hairstyles-trends-2015 (16)hairstyles-trends-2015 (20)tumblr_n6nfbfcEWH1rvu2w3o1_500tumblr_na7a49DZCe1rvu2w3o1_500tumblr_nc4faeMGni1r0f3uso1_500tumblr_nb30rvRqoz1qfyjoto1_500Blonde hair – Well, blonde hair is a 2014. favorite (who would’ve guessed, right?). There’s a bunch of ideas among our celebrities and models to go around. Light or dark blonde, all-out platinum, you name it. Ombre uplights are a strong trend right now, and they are here to stay. Especially with Nicole Richie and Jessica Alba modeling some warmer, honey blonde shades. Ombre lights are excellent for darker shades; they add texture and depth, simultaneously resulting in dark caramel shade, only without the issues with re-growth of the dark root. haircolor-trends-2015 (3)Natural blondes might want to take cues from models such as Jessica Hart or May Jagger. They should opt for a dirty blonde appearance with a bed head look to it. You’ll achieve this by weaving the softer highlights among the darker tones that look more natural. You should wear these long, loose and with a lot of treatment that will ensure the required freshness and glossiness of your blond hair. Platinum blonde is a “notice me” color as always. You could go for champagne-hued tresses like Carey Mulligan or with textured blonde crop like Jenifer Lawrence. Caramel blonde or ultra ash, I’m sure you’ll manage to find something among all those models and celebrities. hairstyles-trends-2015 (12)hairstyles-trends-2015 (21)hairstyles-trends-2015 (25)honey-blonde-platinum-hair-4bfa787d56a99dc0b9a5d1e976f5bcb7Talking styles.

  1. I’ve been rockin’ a hair style that seems to fit me fairly well. On the top of my head the hair is about 5″ long and then I have the sides tapered down to about an inch at the neckline. When I wash it, my hair lays like the style of the early Beatles with surfer waved banes. There’s hardly any maintenance to it after using a few passes with a light hair spray. Then all it needs is an occasional brushing and a spray touch-up. At times I have considered changing colors or just enriching the tones, but we’ll see.

  2. So let me get this straight…. blonde, brunette, red, and colored hair is in. Short hair, medium-length hair, and long hair in braids is in. WOW! Thank you for this deep and insightful analysis.
