Coco Rocha is the star of the new Balmain Hair Couture campaign. The Canadian model became the face –– and hair –– of the brand’s ‘Icons’ line. Lensed by An Le in NYC, the images reflect a big city girl on the go as Gotham stands in her wake. What we love is the transformation of hair color; normally a brunette, Coca became platinum blonde bombshell for this campaign as an illustration of the power of reinvention. If platinum blonde is a look you’ve always dreamed about, we say break your boundaries and go for it.

A change of seasons is a great excuse for changing up your color, something often easier said than done for brunettes. Darker shades reflect less light, so changes in tone aren’t as noticeable. As a result, most brunettes tend to stick with their signature hue, maybe adding a few caramel highlights in the summer. This look switches it up and creates dimension with ribbons of navy blue painted through the lower layers. The shade is subtle enough not to upset your boss, and trendy enough to take your autumn style to another level.

Sombre, ombre, balayage, and dip dye are all variations on a single technique: dark roots blended into lighter and brighter ends. This fall, the softest and most subtle variation ever is emerging: progressive color. Progressive color gradually moves from a slightly darker root to a mid-tone, to a lighter hue at the ends. The melding of one color into the next is seamless, the contrast between levels minimal. It’s the softest, prettiest, and most low-maintenance ombre ever.
