We spotted this American Wave on Instagram. Created by stylist Becky Morey at Salon361 in Ohio, we love the full and thick curvaceous texture and the easy, lived-in aesthetic. Embraced by celebrities such as Emma Stone, American Wave has been trending on the underground for a while now, but with styles like these coming to the fore, expect to see American Wave tumbling down a Main Street near you.

August blooms, bountiful farmers markets, and luminous sunsets fill the last weeks of summer with warm, rich hues, providing a multitude of color inspiration. My favorite hair colors this time of year are rich and saturated, but softened with a dusting of lighter pieces in the same color family, for sun-kissed dimension. These looks, inspired by summery desserts, offer a mix of freshness and richness that’s perfect for the bountiful days of late summer.

All that’s irrelevant now because The Hair Color Expert recently posted this picture of herself wearing an unbeatable color melt that takes in tones from dark purple to lavender to turquoise. Aside from the remarkable application, we love how these tones bring warmth to the skin, making it dewy and vibrant. Including the color formula, there’s an explanation of how this was done, and some before and after pictures, in the notes.
