ART + DESIGN Magazine spring/summer 2016 edition features a two page spread of Embodyment Salon & Spa and The Loft. Sarah, our bride, wanted the look of timeless elegance with a New Orleans vibe for her bridal party. She loved the idea of having a gorgeous environment for her closest friends and family to relax and enjoy their preparations for her big day. The Loft was their home-base and Embodyment transformed these lovely ladies into the classic styles and makeup for Sarah's nuptials.

With the changing of the weather, women often decide to change hair color. We couldn’t be more on board. We love to change with the seasons and this fall there are several dynamite Fall hair color trends for a fresh look!

Vivacious copper tones were all over the runaways and in magazines.  These colors add richness and depth to your hair and are worn by stars like Julia Roberts and Kate Blanchet. These colors do need maintenance and are best suited to a paler skin tone.

Another hot color right now is honey blonde. You can see this color on the likes of Jennifer Lopez and the newly blonde Kim Kardashian. This color makes a great transition from the platinum blonde you like to sport in the summer.  This hue can be tailored to suit almost any skin tone.

If you love to go dark for fall, Demi Lovato and Zooey Deschanel are rocking the most beautiful and rich chocolate browns. This color looks good on almost anyone and can really brighten your skin and eyes.

So, what color is right for you? The first thing to do is schedule an appointment with your hair stylist. There are many things to consider and he/she will help you determine what will work best for your lifestyle.

Skin tone may be the most important factor to consider.  Your colorist will help you determine whether your skin has warm, cool or neutral undertones.

Once your stylist determines your skin tone, choosing a color is much easier. These are our most basic tips:

  • Never go lighter than your skin tone
  • If you have pink skin, stick to ash tones to neutralize your coloring
  • If you have dark skin, stick with brighter colors to avoid looking washed out
  • Yellow hues in your skin makes yellow, gold and orange tones difficult to wear

Making a change is fun and can really update your look. Try to resist the urge to do it on your own; box color can often look flat and become dull quickly. Along with high quality products, your Embodyment stylist will use appropriate color and chemical formulas to ensure long lasting shine as well as healthiness of hair. Even us stylists would not go it alone! Talk to your stylist about options for fall hair color trends that will work best for you. Happy coloring!
