Fresh for Fall

Your wardrobe isn抰 the only thing that needs rotating this fall梱our hair routine needs an update as well. From switching up your products to trying on a new style, it抯 important to make the proper transition from summer to fall. We asked the Oribe Education Team to get us up-to-speed on tips and trends for perfect fall tresses.

Hair Care
Oribe: Any change of seasons gives you a chance to start over and try new things. Before experimenting with a new cut, color or style, it抯 essential to get your hair into peak condition. One way to do that is with our Masque for Beautiful Color, which offers intense, cuticle-enriching conditioning for any type of locks. I recommend using it at least once a week梞ore, if your hair is particularly dry, damaged or over-processed.

Steven Schmidt: Clients can shift from summer to fall by incorporating a little bit more moisture into their conditioning regime. Forced heat梑oth from blowdryers and from heating units in your home and office梔oes a number on your tresses, drying them out. Signature Moisture Masque provides the perfect antidote; it抯 a super-rich reparative treatment for damaged locks.

Cut and Style
Oribe: Even through the weather is getting cooler, you don抰 have to leave the summer completely behind. I抦 very into undone waves for fall, and Apr鑣 Beach is perfect for adding texture and shine all year round.

Coby: Now that the relaxed days of summer are over, everyone starts to get really busy in the fall. To save time, it抯 important get the most out of every blow dry. To do that, try to think about your hair on day three while you抮e styling it on day one.

Day 1: Start with blowdry and structure products, such as Foundation Mist, Supershine Light and Gel S閞um. Give yourself a smooth, pretty blowout.
Day 2: Add some texture into the hair with Dry or Apr鑣 Beach or use a round brush to put a little bend on the ends.
Day 3: Put hair up into a sleek pony tail or French twist. Use more Dry to build texture or Sculpting Cream or Rock Hard Gel for slickness and hold.
Day 4 and beyond: Proceed at your discretion

Kien Hoang: Summer is all about hair that抯 down and loose and has a rougher texture, so it抯 good to change things up for fall and opt for sleeker looks that are off the face and have a lot of shine. Creating a smaller head shape with some serious luster is more groomed and modern. Products from the Oribe Shine Family, such as Soft Lacquer, Gel S閞um and the new Shine Light Reflecting Spray (coming November 2012), are perfect for achieving high-wattage looks.

Ronnie Stam: I love dressing hair up for fall. Luxury headbands, high-quality scarves and stylish hats that let bangs peek through all look great and provide some versatility, especially with the shorter cuts people tend to get for the new season. Using a high-gloss leave-in product like Supershine or Supershine Light allows you to achieve smooth locks for a headband and acts as an all-day moisturizer under a hat or scarf.

Tom Gallagher: I like to open the bangs gate during the fall. If I have clients who are curious about bangs throughout the year, I encourage them to make the cut in the fall. Now is the best time to explore them because humidity relaxes and stronger styles are more on-trend. Smooth Style Serum is great for smoothing out bangs.


Steven Schmidt: One of my favorite fall trends is hair going a shade or two darker and incorporating more red tones. Summer blondes are beautiful, but a fall golden is gorgeous. To make highlights really pop, lightly mist Shine Light Reflecting Spray (coming November 2012) onto a brush and apply.

Louis Orozco: To transition from summer to fall, I recommend deepening your hair color for a richer look. Shampoo, Conditioner and Masque for Beautiful Color will help preserve your new hue, along with healing the effects of the sun, sea and sand of summer.

Ramona Eschbach: Multi-color hair is a big trend for fall. Flashes of bold colors hidden throughout the hair appeared on several runways梐 good option for those who aren抰 daring enough to dye their whole head. If you抮e bleaching your locks, remember to use a masque regularly to heal the stripped hair and lock in moisture.
