When the seasons change and the bathing suits get put away and the world turns to pumpkin flavored everything, it’s time to think about a new hairstyle. And in many cases for the fall of 2021, the old will become new again. The pandemic has caused shifts in styles (hello yoga pants), but it has also invited some tried and true hairstyles to stick around longer than they otherwise might have. In the face of more pandemic uncertainty this fall, your clients might not know exactly what they want to do with their hair, but you can easily steer them in the right direction. We’ve come up with a list of what your clients will most likely be asking you for this upcoming season.
Low-key color trends
The fall will feature the continued trend of “less is more” as far as color is concerned. Trending toward the low maintenance, your clients will want to stick with a color that is close to their base color. By sticking close to the original hair color, this will allow for a smoother transition for your clients while at the same time offer them a chance to brighten things up with their look. No matter what the color trend, when you color your client’s hair, make sure to use Neo’Bond in its 3 step process. This replicates and fortifies bonds in their hair, allowing hair to stay healthier as the color and heat are applied.
Curtain bangs are easy to cut, and easy for your clients to pull off. Because they are low maintenance and grow back easily, they are a good choice for your clients that don’t have a ton of time but want to try something different. Clients should make sure to style their bangs first since they dry so fast. For either style of bangs that are in right now, (curtain or fringe), clients can use our 4-in-1 Platform Blowout Brush to dry and style. This way, you can curl and dry at the same time, and get them situated exactly how you want them. It will only take a few passes with the blowout brush to dry and style.
Although a bit harder to pull off than the uber-flattering curtain bangs, for a client with an oval face, the fringe bangs will be super cute. Try a super soft fringe for a client who is always talking about bangs but is nervous to pull the trigger. By working off their part line, you can ease them into fringe bangs while still framing their face. Whether the fringe is blunt or softer, this look will be big for fall.
This heavily layered haircut is still in style. Whether short or long, it features so many layers, and is a great way to put some new life into your hair for fall. Though short layers are usually created to layer the face, the shag is definitely connected to the back as well, and a good hair stylist knows exactly how to play it. Remind your clients that curly and long shags are going to be especially popular for fall. Your clients will have great luck styling their shag haircut by using the 1900 Nano Lite Pro Hair Dryer. With its tourmaline ceramic technology and powerful motor, they will cut their drying time and leave the hair frizz free and silky smooth.
The air is getting crisp, but the ends are getting even crisper! Rather than feather-soft edges, fall calls for a bit more of a punch. No matter what type of layers or fun your client wants you to create for them, one trend for this fall is to have a crisp end to the hair line. To maintain crispness, remind your clients to get their hands on a product like the Sheer Satin Remedy Treatment. Used daily, they can simulaneaously protect their hair from the heat and keep frizz at bay. This is a great way to keep hair shiny and the ends crisp.
The transition to fall often makes people happy with sweater weather, football games, apple picking and other fall traditions. As a hairstylist, you have the opportunity to help your clients get ready for a new season with a whole new look.
The Platform Blowout brush is an amazing product that does four jobs in one. But just like anything else, if you don’t know how to use it, you will not be able to take advantage of its plasma ionic technology and 360-degree airflow, which will create silky smooth hair that is beautifully styled using only this one tool.
We spoke to professional stylist and FHI Heat Educator Timothy Deleon about why he loves the Platform Blowout Brush and how to use it.
While the term “one size fits all” might work for headphones or scarves, you need a more personalized plan when it comes to your hair. This starts with the type of tools you use and the way that you use them. Use too high of a temperature for your hair type, and you risk burning your locks. But if you don’t have enough heat, you will not create the curls you are going for. At FHI Heat, we believe that using the right tools and products for the job is imperative. With the technology of hair tools constantly changing, we have brought together some of the best tools around, no matter what your hair type.
