Hair Color

The right hair color can give you a look that compliments all your features, brings out the best in your haircut, and gives your hair a shiny, healthy look.
The wrong hair color, however, can be complexion draining, overshadow an otherwise great haircut, and give you head-turning attention - for all the wrong reasons
Blonde Hair Color The key to a great blonde hair color is choosing the shade that will flatter your complexion.
Brown Hair Color As brunettes know, brown hair is great for shine, healthy looking brown hair color that's full of shine.
Red Hair Color Red hair color looks sensational when it's vibrant.
Highlights Although chunky highlights will always be a very popular look, a more subtle highlighted look, creates a flattering impression and lightens the hair in a soft and natural way.
Two-tone Hair Color blonde on top and brown on the bottom look, a two-tone hair color can be lots of fun!.
Alternative Hair Color Although an all over alternative hair color should only be tried by the very brave (and perhaps only in wig form), there's something about this electric blue color from Katy Perry that we'd love to try out.

Pair Wavy Strands With Straight Bangs

Soft, loose curls are still really hot, but if you're looking to switch up this look just a bit, keep your bangs or shorter face-framing pieces sleek like Reese Witherspoon does here. The effect works best if your fringe is long and wispy.

Fall / Winter 2011 Hairstyles

Flat Ironed Chignon

The chignon is polished and can be worn tight or loose to the head. It’s a totally fashionable look that is easy to re-create and wear for daytime or evening. This look was shown at the United Colors of Fashion Show and looked great on all the models. To get this chic look, just flat iron the hair, pull the hair into a low ponytail while making sure to keep the hair smooth, and finish by folding hair back into itself and securing with bobby pins. Use a light hold hair spray to keep flyaways at bay.

Hairstyles for this Fall

Long waves - If your hair is long you can update your look for fall without having to chop off any of that length. Long, soft waves are one of the most popular women's hair styles for women with long hair. Soft waves are easy to get using a set of large rollers and a little hair spray. Pop the rollers in before you go to bed for waves that will last all day. You can also get waves using a medium warm flat iron.
