Fall 2012 Haircolor Forecast for Blondes
...get ready for the bright, bold, retro blonde
Being able to predict the upcoming season’s hottest color trends is all part of being a top colorist. The next step? Knowing how to help clients transition into those hot new shades. So what does the blonde hue forecast look like for fall? Expert colorist Jason Backe provides the color outlook.
The Retro Blonde
The Pro: Jason Backe, L’Oréal Professionnel Ambassador, President & CEO, ted gibson salons
Forecast: “This fall and winter, we will move away from the sunny, golden blondes and jump into beige-y base colors with creamy, icy highlights.”
Why: “It’s all about period looks right now and since beige-y blondes and icy shades are reminiscent of the mid-1960s to early 1970s, they will be super hot for winter!”
What to avoid: “Excessive regrowth! Encourage clients to pre-book for every three weeks, four at the most, so their color is always perfect and without banding.”
Perfect for: Fair skin and light eye colors.
Not recommended: “Girls with darker eyes and darker complexions should skip the beige and opt for honey!”
