If you are looking for a single-toned, new fall hue this beautiful shade of peach-copper is right on trend, and goes to show that reds don’t have to be in your face, bold and bright. And subtle colors look great on a pale complexion. If you like the idea, but feel the tone isn’t the one for you, talk to your colorist about other options in the red-brown range of colors –– it’s definitely a trend for fall.

We loved the clothing at Anna Sui’s SS ’13 runway show with exotic prints and lacy details, but we can’t stop gushing about the hair! Blues and pinks sashayed down the catwalk on models’ ultra shiny manes to bring an extra “something” to the show.  What do you think of this look from Fashion Week?

We remember Caesar for his military prowess and political savvy, but his influence on fashion was as powerful as his impact on politics. His eponymous haircut is still worn today; his loose toga, which showed off his hairless chest and deep V, paved the way for the hipsters of the future. Julius was proud of his style, and when he started loosing his hair, he adopted the famous laurel wreath to conceal thinning locks. This loopy braided style, worn high like a crown, gives a regal look to hair, and may just help you take over the world.

Contrasting tones look great in a casual updo, and bring added texture to braided styles.See below for steps on how to achieve this look.
