Trends of Fall/Winter 2011

The year is coming to an end and a new year is beginning. It's an exciting, hopeful time. But, for now let's reflect on some of the hottest trends we've seen at Salon Capelli and hopefully get some inspiration for 2012.

This holiday season my clients have really been mixing it up. They are ready for change and ready to move forward into the new year with bold, radiant hair. I've been taking a lot of people from blond, to brown or red..Cutting mid length cuts into short pixies, cutting long hair into mid lengths or lots of layers...Adding new bangs...And, Brightening up color...So, so much change...Thank you all for trusting me with your locks and letting me play..I've been having so much fun, and I hope you all have had a great time too with your most versatile accessory, your hair...



(any shade of red is the most popular color this season..thank you Rhianna, Mad Men, and all you gorgeous redheads out there)

I've been asked for a lot of asymmetrical cuts, longer "security wisps" in the front to give a short cut a whimsical feel.

Also for women very short clean lines around the ears
Things to keep in mind for when going short..

* Size of forehead (if it's longer keep longer bangs, if it's smaller keep shorter bang)

* Jaw if it's more square keep the front a little longer and softer around the ears, if it's more
narrow take the hair shorter above the jaw line then when it grows flip it way from the jaw to
give the illusion of width if needed.

* Hair grows about 1/2 an inch a month. Will your hair feel grown out in 3 1/2 to 4 weeks? Are
you able to spend more time with your hairdresser:)


For curls I'm seeing color dusted in the ends, or color snaking throughout..as always highlights are popular and natural looks.

There are small layers throughout especially on top, in the sides, and bangs area for shape/style..In these curly styles look where the ends of the hair spring out all over to create the illusion of long balanced hair.

Girls have been playing a lot with bobby pins, headbands, and scarves:) I love curls!! Always remember wash your hair less and however it looks when it's wet is how it will look when it's dry..If it's not behaving how you want add a little water and reset!!

Mid length

Long Layers


Solid ashy browns or Rich golden browns
Ombre blonds and brunettes that look natural like they have been at the beach all summer

every color you see in this blog post is a color I love:)


Headbands have become the accessory of choice this fall/winter..


The biggest trend is...Natural textures or perms worn down with product and scrunching water
throughout..These styles have also been enhanced with curling irons especially 1 1/2 to 2 inch (larger) barrel waves or flat iron waves to make sure the form and balanced of the curl is perfect..

This season hair looks effortless...And, the right cut/color/styling tricks can make that happen...

Happy Hair for 2012!!!
