Money Pieces

“Money pieces are all about face-framing with pops of highlights inspired by what the sun would naturally do,” says George Papanikolas, a celebrity stylist at Matrix. He prefers to use the balayage technique to create a soft, delicate blend at the root and gradually have the color get thicker and heavier as you move down the hair shaft. “This is a great way to keep your hair in optimum condition with minimal highlights but also gives the hair a super modern and edgy finish,” he says.

Golden Hour

“Blondes always tend to want to be a little more on the golden side. This is achieved by low lighting with a medium golden blonde or by lifting the natural color just slightly to create more contrast while staying natural,” shares Tiffanie Richards, master colorist at Nunzio Saviano.

Loose Updos

Updos are all about keeping your hair looking good with a low-maintenance routine. JB Shelton, a stylist and salon educator with Bosley Professional Strength, recommends loose updos, “including half up and half down, messy buns, and high ponytails finished with soft face-framing wisps of hair to create a more angelic and light appearance.”

Curly Bangs

For the ultimate cool-girl style, award-winning hairstylist Nunzio Saviano has been giving clients curly bangs. They’re “unpredictable, so cutting them dry is key, it’s the only way to see what the curls are doing, how they fall, and ultimately how they frame the face.” Ryan Austin, master stylist at IGK Salon suggests pairing them with a sleek low bun for the ultimate professional look.

Mushroom Blonde

This fall, it’s all about modern looks that we haven’t seen before. Mushroom blonde is “a cross between brunette and blonde and is ashier and more neutral,” says Stephanie Brown, master colorist at IGK Salon in NYC. It’s an in-between shade that allows blondes to try a darker look and brunettes to lighten up.

Head Scarves

Barbecues and beach days can leave your scalp and strands damaged before the start of fall, so Elyse Maguire, founder and principal designer of Elyse Maguire, suggests wearing a scarf. She explains,” SPF [and] UPF protection in a scarf is the chicest way to protect not only your locks but also those sensitive areas like your scalp, hairline, and ears.”
