September: fashion shows, new clothes, and new hair. If you’re an overachiever and you’d like to get all of those things knocked out at once– then I might see you at Bellevue Fashion Week this year. I’ll be attending SEVEN the salon’s annual Illuminessence hair show Sunday, September 28. I’m excited to take a break from my usual affinity for the practical and take in the pure glamour and creativity of the show.
THE SHOW | Illuminessence by SEVEN. Sunday, September 28, 7 p.m. Hyatt Regency Bellevue. The culminating show of Bellevue Fashion Week, Illuminessence will feature cutting edge hair by SEVEN salon and clothes from up-and-coming local designers. Tickets on sale via Brown Paper Tickets.
Staying true to my need for practicality, I spoke with Jaclyn Beith, SEVEN the salon’s Creative Team Leader about fall hair trends this time around. Here’s the breakdown:
FALL 2015 HAIR TRENDS
DARKER | “Fall trends usually fall into patterns of going darker, adding more warmth to hair color and/or changing up the hairstyle. I think the great part about this fall is there really isn’t one huge trend,” said Jaclyn. “I’m a fan of that because it has our clients looking like individuals, as opposed to all looking the same.”
THE LOB | While Jaclyn notes that hair is all about individuality right now, some trends do take hold. “One of the more popular haircuts right now is the “lob” which is a long version of the traditional “bob.” It’s been around for a little bit but it’s still really popular. It’s a great length for those who have longer hair, want a change, but don’t want to go super short. It’s a fresh new take on a more traditional haircut.”
COLOR | The sky’s the limit. “Balayage is huge right now because of its low commitment and natural results. Also if you’re a color lover, you can pretty much pick whatever fashion color you love most,” said Jaclyn. “Pinks reds, blues, greens…you name it, you can sport it.”
PRODUCT | For those who color their hair, Jaclyn is loving SEVEN’s COLOR Shampoo and Conditioner. “It has avocado oil, antioxidants and a Chromaveil technology to reduce fading of your hair color. Perfect for preserving your new fall color,” Jaclyn said.
LAST WORDS | Me: Ombre is the hairstyle that will never die. What can be said about its longevity? Jaclyn: “Ombre and balayage are cousins in the color world. In my opinion, the “ombre” look of being too blonde on the ends is trending out and is being replaced with bolder colors. I don’t think the ombre style and/or balayage are going anywhere anytime soon. We’re in for the long haul.”
