Change Your Look With Auburn

By September 21, 2021No Comments

When you’d like to try a color with a red tint, we think auburn is a great choice! This shade can look flawless on both dark and light hair, so you won’t have to worry if it’ll work with your current hue. If you’d like to dip your toes in this color, stop by Salon Antoine. We are located at 11092 Lee Highway in Fairfax, VA.

Auburn

When it comes to auburn, you can go as light or as dark as you prefer. Perhaps if you have dark or lighter brown hair at the moment, you might choose a darker variant when adding auburn to your hair. On the other hand, go with a more vibrant hue if you have a shade of blonde. Either way, you will be strutting two beautiful hair colors and turning heads with each step you take! You’ll love that this hue flatters all skin complexions and automatically brings out any eye color. Also, if you’re someone who follows any seasonal hair trends, you might consider a darker auburn for Fall and Winter and then go with a brighter shade during the warmer months. The choice is all yours!

Try the Color With Highlights or an Ombre

We know sometimes individuals just want to test things out with a brand-new shade, and that’s where highlights come in. This will let you see how much you like it and you can always come back later to add some more if you’re interested. Sometimes, it makes a difference if you just do a few strands of auburn close to the face to accentuate your look. Another great option is to try an ombre. This style has been around for a while now and it’s where a different color starts around ear level or lower. The final result is a two-tone color that cascades toward the ends. And as always, you have the option of adding more than just one shade to the ombre if you realize that the auburn compliments your hair.

Maintenance

If you’re wondering about the maintenance of this shade, we’re happy to talk about it. As with any red color, it’s ideal to make a stop into our salon every four weeks or so. This allows us to do touch-ups and make sure that the color is staying fresh and vibrant. However, if you like to let your roots grow out and are liking the faded shade, you definitely don’t have to abide by the rule! When you visit us, this also lets us add additional highlights or correct your ombre. You can also go with a different color or haircut when you’re here. This way, your overall locks will be free of split ends, damage, and are always shining.

Come to Salon Antoine to test out a shade of auburn that suits you! If you’d like more information or a consultation, please contact us. Our stylists can’t wait to speak with you!

    Summer’s high temperatures are in full swing and if you’ve been holding on to your long locks now is the perfect time to visit Salon Antoine for a lob. Otherwise known as a long bob, we love the lob for warm weather due to its versatility and how well it works with a wide range of hair textures. This trendy look isn’t going anywhere, so give us a call to book an appointment with one of our expert stylists.

    What is a Lob?

    Although the exact length can vary based on the natural texture and thickness of your hair, a lob generally hits right at or just below the shoulders. If you have tight curls or medium to thick waves, this is a great length to ensure there is enough weight for the hair to fall evenly. For those with fine hair, a layered lob provides body and volume without having to tease or add large amounts of product. When heat and humidity strikes you’ll feel cool even when your hair is down – it’s like an instant breath of fresh air! This length still provides plenty of options, including a half knot or bun when you want to keep your hair off your neck completely. We do recommend stopping by every two or three months to keep your cut looking at its best, but a quick trim is all you’ll need.

    Styling Tips

    The lob is also great cut for hair clips and barrettes, two of the biggest accessory trends of the year. Stop by your favorite store in person or online to stock up on a range of colors and sizes. Our stylists would be happy to show you several different ways to style these throwback accessories in runway-inspired fashion, from a dramatic side-swept part to a messy bun accented by a collection of your favorite clips. Even if you just want advice on the best products for your new shorter cut, our stylists will take the time to recommend a few of their favorite choices. We have experience with a wide variety of hair textures and want you to feel confident in your hair’s natural beauty!

    Transition Into Fall

    Another benefit in favor of the lob? It’s a great length to show off layered outfits when cooler weather finally arrives. Bring full attention to a bright scarf or a statement hat with shoulder-length hair that won’t distract or get in the way. Come back and let us transform this cut for a new season with a warm brown, red, or copper color that reflects the cozy mood of fall. Although it’s perfect for summer, we really love how versatile this cut is and how it wonderful it looks all year long. You may even find yourself considering an angled bob once you see how easy it is to wash and style short hair.

    If you’re ready for a refreshing way to beat the heat, come to Salon Antoine for a summer lob! We want to see you leave feeling excited about your look and knowledgeable about how to style it on your own. For the customer-focused salon experience you deserve, head on over to 11092 Lee Highway in Fairfax, VA.
