Fall's Hottest Hair Color Trends

Fall is around the corner and I'm so excited!  Now's the time to refresh your look.  I'm already thinking about what I'm going to do with my hair.  Toying with the idea of ombre... we'll see. Here are the top three hair color trends for this fall and with recommendations for how to get each look from Clairol Professional Celebrity ColoristKiyah Wright.

Hair Chalking

Celebs like Lauren Conrad, Nicki Minaj and Jamie King have all flirted with this trend and if you're one of those people who are constantly seeking change, it's for you, too.  Hair Chalking is a great way to add some fun colors to your hair without making a commitment.  The best hair chalking tutorial I've seen is by Lauren Conrad herself on her blog, The Beauty Department.  Check it out before you start drawing.  The best part, yes, you can use regular chalk!

Bright Reds

Rihanna is the first person that comes to mind when I think of bright red hair done right.  Looking to jump on board?  "Make sure you talk to your colorist about the intensity that you want and the best way to achieve it without compromising the integrity of your hair," remarks Wright.  If bright red hair isn't for you, but you still want a hint of red, brunettes can add reddish coppers and blondes can play with strawberry tones to be on trend.


Ombre isn't going anywhere!  "It's changed in intensity over the years in that it used to be more subtle. Now, many are going for drama," commented Wright, who did Ciara's ombre look for the 2012 Grammy Awards.  She advises using extensions to flirt with the trend without compromising your strands.
