red hair

It appears that designers just can’t get enough of auburn haired models. Louis Vuitton kicked it off with the pre-summer collections with a total of six redheads on the runway. Following suit, Gucci also cast eight redheads for its show. And now I’m seeing autumn/ winter ’15 campaigns from Dior, Zara TRF and Celine and MSMG full of models with copper locks. The reason for all the infatuation with red? Amber hair play with autumn palettes, many influenced by the 1970s. Ready to try on the season’s hottest color?

bella hadid

Bella Hadid may be the little sister to model Gigi Hadid, but she’s quite the style star of her own. Bella again showed her sartorial chops when she stepped out at last week’s Samsung event donning a super posh pony with a center part. Ponytails have been all the rage on the runway, putting Bella on point with her beauty choice. I love how the look went along with her demure dress, an all-around sexy and chic style.

red currant

The bold, piquant, and aromatic flavor of a wild currant belies its small size. The tiny fruit is tannic, tart, and intensely fruity, all of which comes through in it’s bright, slightly translucent hue. We’ve stollen this berries color for this delicious, complex shade of red, which is actually a layer application of three shades that creates shine and depth.

blonde hair

Many of us come into the world towheaded and as a result we often associate blonde hair with youthfulness. A soft, sun-kissed hue can definitely make you look younger, but the wrong blonde can add years instead of taking them away. Flattering blondes need to be just the right match for your skin. They need to have shine. They need dimension. Does your blonde give you a youthful glow? Find out in the notes. –– Laura Martin
