Sophisticate’s Blog:         Fabulous Fall Hair

With cooling temperatures and leaves beginning to change color, it’s apparent the fall is right around the corner. You might be swapping bikinis for scarves, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your fun-loving, summer strands! Whether you prefer windswept texture or a smooth silhouette, celebrity hairstylist Marc Mena will help transition your tresses with styles that will make this your sexiest season yet!

Bring the beach back to your hair by sporting the boho look this season of perfectly imperfect waves. “The key to this look is to not focus on achieving flawless waves. The messier, the better,” says Mena. Start with a smoothing balm while hair is wet to prime, protect and create manageable strands. To achieve the messy look, use a texture styling spray on damp hair, spraying 4-6 inches away, concentrating the mist at the scalp for more volume. With added dimension and thickness, this bed head style is the ultimate no-fuss ‘do.

As temperatures cool down, we may be more reluctant to put our hair up. Mena suggests turning to a low ponytail for a versatile, sophisticated style that allows for a lot of room to play. Start by distributing a style defining cream from root to tip while hair is still wet to make styling a cinch. Part your hair down the middle or to the side, securing hair at the nape of the neck. After clasping with a tie, spritz with hairspray to ensure hair stays in place without restricting the strands.

“One of the boldest looks of the season features a slicked back style, exuding a chic, ultramodern feel,” says Mena. To start, comb smoothing oil through strands immediately after cleansing. Blow-dry as usual with the nozzle facing downward to prevent frizz and ensure smooth hair. Use styling gel to provide lift and volume at the crown, while leaving a “wet” finish.
