New Season, New Haircut, New Hair Color

The calendar starts the new year in January, but ever since you were a kid heading off to meet your new classmates and teachers, it’s September that feels like a new beginning.  And what’s the best way to welcome new beginnings? With a new haircut and hair color of course! Get ready for everything the season has in store for you with these top Matrix hair trends for fall 2013.

In The Middle. Supermodels are doing it. So are celebrities, style bloggers, fashion editors and just about everybody else. Fashionistas are snipping off their long locks, leaving just enough length to graze the shoulders. The midlength cut is freeing, swingy and strikes the perfect balance between not too long and not too short. Dubbed the “lob” (long bob), the “clavi-cut” or the “crop,” it’s the ideal autumn refresh. Dry, sun-damaged ends disappear and strands look healthy and shiny. Plus, style options are endless—add some Matrix Biolage Whipped Mousse to damp hair and when it’s dry, hit it with a flat iron for sleek polish with body. Or, mist sections with Biolage Thermal Active Setting Spray and twist and twirl them around a curling wand for a fashionably tousled finish.

Mocha Highlights. Brown haired beauties, it’s your turn! Highlights aren’t just for blondes any longer. Stars like Jennifer Lopez and Eva Mendes are proof that brunettes can sport luscious, creamy lights without (horrors!) brassiness, thanks to professional hair color advancements like Matrix COLORINSIDER ammonia-free hair color.

Peaches and Cream. Summer fruit is still ripe in this trend! If you love to live your hair color life on the edge, check out the trend toward tones of pale apricot, peach and tangerine cream. Worn all over, or with just a few discreet strands peeking out from an ivory blonde base, these hues harmonize beautifully with fall’s earth-toned fashion palette.
