Hair Trends: Tracey Cunningham's Top Haircolors for Fall/Winter 2015

Fall is just around the corner, and just as the season changes, so too do the hair colors most requested by clients. Bright blondes and fun, rainbow colors will make way for the new fall/winter 2015 hair color trends, which Fashion Week runways and Hollywood red carpets show will be a return to new twists on old classics. Below, Redken Celebrity Colorist Tracey Cunningham shares her scoop on the trends she is using on her own celebrity clients - from sombre, to baby lights, to amped-up natural color - this season and provides Redken formulas so that you can recreate each look on your own clients.

Fall/Winter 2015 Trend #1: Sombre
“Low-maintenance color has been a popular trend recently and has now been expanded with sombre, a much more subtle and blended take on ombre," says Tracey. "Sombre is a softer, more wearable look that is flatting on everyone, even those with darker hair like Jessica Biel. Redken’s NEW Chromatics Mocha shades help to create a rich base color that can be toned and refreshed with the NEW Shades EQ Gloss natural warm shades like Milk Tea and Cream Soda.”

Fall/Winter 2015 Trend #2: Babylights, Continued
“The popularity of the Spring/Summer Babylights trend has gained momentum, especially with brunette clients who are realizing that highlights are not just for blondes," says Tracey. "Natural, untouched hair is always lighter around the hairline which is essentially the Babylights technique. By softening the hairline with Blonde Idol Blue Oil Lightening System oil lightener from the Professional Haircolor Collection, clients with darker haircolor like Lily Aldridge can easily transition their summer-highlighted hair to something more natural that complements fall colors.”

To create the blonde dimension while toning and refreshing Emma’s hair, Redken Shades EQ is my go-to for creating this universally flattering look.”
