Get the Formulas: Tracey Cunningham’s Fall/Winter 2015 Celebrity Haircolor Trends!

Celebrity haircolor trends are being reimagined for the Fall/Winter 2015 season with new takes on old favorites. As the weather turns cooler, haircolor grows warmer with trends like Sombre and Babylights amplifying the natural color on blondes, brunettes and redheads alike.

Redken Celebrity Colorist Tracey Cunningham shares her scoop on the trends she is using on her own celebrity clients this season and provides Redken formulas to help guide you at your next salon appointment.

Fall/Winter 2015 Trend #1: Sombre
Low-maintenance color has been a popular trend recently and has now been expanded with sombre, a much more subtle and blended take on ombre. Sombre is a softer, more wearable look that is flatting on everyone, even those with darker hair like Jessica Biel. Redken’s NEW Chromatics Mocha shades help to create a rich base color that can be toned and refreshed with the NEW Shades EQ Gloss natural warm shades like Milk Tea and Cream Soda.” – Tracey Cunningham

Fall/Winter 2015 Trend #2: Babylights continued
The popularity of the Spring/Summer Babylights trend has gained momentum, especially with brunette clients who are realizing that highlights are not just for blondes. Natural, untouched hair is always lighter around the hairline which is essentially the Babylights technique. By softening the hairline with Blonde Idol Blue Oil Lightening System oil lightener from the Professio­nal Haircolor Collection, clients with darker haircolor like Lily Aldridge can easily transition their summer-highlighted hair to something more natural that complements fall colors.” – Tracey Cunningham

Fall/Winter 2015 Trend #3: Lightened Red
Redheads are embracing a softer color this fall, with vibrant reds like Emma Stone adding subtle blonde highlights to create an understated contrast. To create the blonde dimension while toning and refreshing Emma’s hair, Redken Shades EQ is my go-to for creating this universally flattering look.” – Tracey Cunningham
