Fall Trends 2014

Fall is coming upon us fast and I don’t know about you, but I can definitely feel it in the air. I thought, since everyone is hustling to get school shopping done and unpacking their autumn wardrobes while putting away their summer ones, I’d let you in on some of the stylish trends to look out for this fall. The number one thing to look out for and play around with is, oxidized colors.

Fall Trends 2014 Oxidized Hair Color Treatment

Click to Enlarge – Fall Trends 2014 Oxidized Hair Color

Oxidized colors on one side are your bronze, rust, and brown tones, all common fall choices. On the other side are jade, turquoise, and rich green tones, such as emerald and peridot. Not as common in the fall like their counterparts, but can liven up any wardrobe when included. Look for innovative animal designs or fun fabricated effects on clothing and accessories. With regards to your hair, don’t necessarily color it darker, go with richer, warmer, and fuller colors. Finally, with make-up, go with very natural tones and accent with green for your eyeshadow. Play around and you’ll come up with something great.

I hope this helps you come up with some awesome ideas and don’t be afraid to accent with the vivid and enticing green hues on the oxidized color chart. I look forward to seeing your stylish faces this coming season.
