Tracey shares with us the latest in fall haircolor – read further to find out what the hottest looks for Fall/Winter 2011 are and what minor adjustments to make to our existing haircolor without breaking the bank.
I make small adjustments to update my clients’ color from fall to winter,” says TraceyCunningham, Redken Creative Consultant for Color. “I love using the new Redken Illumination technique to create a natural but current look. The technique is all about graduating the color from dark at the base to light on the ends to create a beautiful, modern look.”
Fall/Winter 2011 Trend #1: Brunettes
The look of the upcoming season will continue to be the ‘Illumination’ effect. It is the hottest haircolor trend in Hollywood right now and it can be seen on every red carpet! It is a fun look that welcomes the winter months going brunette around the base and gradually going lighter down to the ends of the hair. Time is always of the essence and with the ‘Illumination’ look, you don’t have to visit your colorist as often as you would for regular highlights since color isn’t applied on the roots.” – Tracey Cunningham
Fall/Winter 2011 Trend #2: Redheads
Isla’s color is one of my favorite looks. The shine in her hair gives her a vibrant look from head to toe. This fall you will see this look on many of my celebrity clients as it’s a very seasonal trend. The color is in-between a strawberry blonde red and a ginger red; it is the perfect touch of ‘fun- in-the-sun look’ after the summer months.” – Tracey Cunningham
Fall/Winter 2011 Trend #3: Blondes
Emma’s new blonde look has been quite the buzz with the media. This look is the result of a few visits to the salon to get it just right. The most important aspect to this look is keeping your locks hydrated to reduce breakage from the lightener. The look has highlights and lowlights throughout the hair and an ultra blonde base.” – Tracey Cunningham
