If you’re becoming beyond bored with your fading summer color, perhaps it’s time to make a necessary change this fall, and choose a rich and unforgettable color you’ll truly love. Craving something different but don’t know where to start? For some coloring inspiration, Tracey Cunningham, Redken Creative Consultant and Celebrity Colorist, is showing us the hottest color trends and how to get these stunning looks yourself. From pure platinum to rose gold reds, read more on how to achieve these stunning, multi-tonal looks below.

Platinum Blonde

It’s often thought that blondes should go darker in the fall months, but Cunningham finds that platinum is a growing trend that’s here to stay.

Blondes are going lighter than ever right now, and platinum is always in style, especially during the cooler months. I love experimenting with different shades and tones on blondes and creating the perfect shade to match the skintone. For medium skintones, like Charlize Theron, I can go pure platinum; and for fairer skin tones, I love to play up pale colors.” To get that frosty blonde look, Redken’s latest product offerings can help you achieve all those gorgeous hues of blonde.

“With Redken’s new Cool Control Color Gels and Color Fusion shades, I can achieve the iciest whites, sparkly silvers or pale pastels on all of my blonde clients. Of course at-home maintenance is just as important, so I always recommend that my blonde clients use the Redken Blonde Idol Collection, which features Kera-Bright System Technology to brighten all shades of blonde. For non-blondes, Redken Diamond Oil is a hair oil treatment that features several oils that target all layers of the hair to strengthen, replenish and protect,” Cunningham adds.

Bronzed Brunette

To spice up your brunette locks this fall, picking a more bronzed shade allows you to go lighter and still rock those natural, deeper shades you love.

“Many of my brunette clients come into the salon wanting to lighten up their current color, while keeping a natural look. I just did this for Dakota Johnson (as seen above), who went brunette for 50 Shades of Grey and wanted to go lighter in real life… so I painted on some shades of bronze and gold at the ends to subtly lighten her hair without it turning brassy. This is a great way to achieve a gorgeous, natural look for any brunette.”

Rose Gold Hair Color – How To Warm Up Highlights Without Having To Go Completely Blonde

And if you’re dying to sexify your red hair, rose gold and copper shades are totally having a moment right now, as they flatter every skintone and warm up your complexion fast.

Rose golds and coppers are extremely popular right now and they look gorgeous on nearly all skintones. I can add golden hues if my client wants to go more rose gold, or I can add intense reds and coppers to achieve Riley Keough’s rich red color. I love Redken’s NEW! Color Blur Brush because I can give my clients the exact look they want by creating multidimensional shades with custom highlights and hues,” Cunningham suggests.

8 Best Tips To Position Yourself For Future Success In The Beauty, Fashion, Creative Industries – 2nd Annual CEW 2014 Beauty Salary, Career, Job Market Trend Report

8 Best Tips To Position Yourself For Future Success In The Beauty, Fashion, Creative Industries - 2nd Annual CEW 2014 Beauty Salary, Career, Job Market Trend Report

All this back-to-school talk has us feeling very studious and interested in what’s going on in our wonderful beauty world. Back in July, we were invited to the 2nd Annual CEW 2014 Beauty Salary & Job Market Report, giving us a sense how executives, managers and staffers are compensated and the general mood in the job market. Guest speakers included Lisa Marie Ringus of 24 Seven Inc. and Sarah Willersdorf of The Boston Consulting Group who talked about current job market trends — in a survey that included over 800 beauty professionals — in the creative, beauty and fashion world, and what it takes to stand out from the rest.

The 20th Annual CEW Insiders’ Choice Beauty Awards And Iconic Beauty Award Winners

Basically, what’s trending is finding the absolute best talent out there, with those game-changing Millenials (ages 24-32) changing the whole workforce aesthetic. Every day, people put their best foot forward to showcase their skill sets with a can-do attitude and ripe resume. While in attendance, we came up with some key job market trends for you to keep in mind of for your next job search to land your dream job!

1. Join the CEW Beauty Career Center. Members can connect on a social level to find job postings, tools, information, mentors and the connections you need to take your career to the next level, or, discover the best talent for your organization.

2. Identify a good company. Even if your first or second job isn’t what you dreamed off, make sure to find a company with room for growth. Just because you start at a low-paying position doesn’t mean you won’t be able to move up the ranks. Even if you have to start out small, be assertive and open.

80% of talent were approached with a job opportunity last year

3. Companies are looking for game-changing talent. Creative companies are looking to grow their culture with individuals with an impressive and flexible skill set. More and more companies are working with their employees and are becoming open to the prospects of telecommuting and comp days to appease their employees’ busy lives.

4. Be accepting of temporary/contract work. Especially if you are starting your first entry level or are a recent graduate, there is always the chance for full-time employment if you work hard and meet those deadlines!

5. No typos on your resume! A resume is a first impression. So be detailed, concise and REVISE, REVISE, REVISE!

6. The rocket fuel of any company is the engaged employee. Companies want their employees to be happy at their jobs, and believe in their mission and vision. In order to recruit those “extra-milers”, companies rely on clear communication to establish trust and engage with their employees.

91% of people work for a company they want to work for

7. Reach out to anyone in the industry. LinkedIn is your friend. Word-of-mouth job searching is still a tried-and-true method of finding work. The more you network, the more doors open. Also make sure to connect with your friends and co-workers on social media, such as LinkedIn to always stay engaged. And when writing emails, remember to keep it short, sweet and don’t be afraid to follow up.

8. An employee’s self-worth. Salary is still a factor in regards to taking a job, but as more people are becoming integrated in their work (thanks, social media), there are additional components that keep them coming back to their desk each morning — a feeling of self-worth and recognition. This falls back into realm of feeling like you’re part of the attractive company community: that your needs and well-being are taken into consideration for the good of the team.

I never want to be without this product. It’s that amazing! It comes packaged in a set of 3 liners. Why you ask? Any of you who work(ed) at a makeup counter know of customers complaining that their liner pots dry out (we all know it’s because they don’t properly close it, but that’s another story). Well, this will alleviate that problem. This is a mechanical pencil that swivels upwards; it does not go back down, so you use exactly what you need. Each of the 3 pens are designed to give you 18-20 uses. Two clicks is all you need! So you always get a fresh application. How amazing is that?

Hairstyle Trends 2014, 2015: Get The Look, Photos: Katie Holmes Texturized TopKnot At The Giver Movie Premiere

How To Care For, Maintain, Treat, Style Bangs Like Katie Holmes

The gorgeous and talented Katie Holmes looked classically chic at last night’s NYC premiere of The Giver (which hits theaters this Friday, August 15th!) with a texturized topknot. The look was flawless — and surprisingly easy to re-create and translate at home for a chic, yet sultry summer do.

According to Celebrity Hairstylist Sabastian Scolarici, who created Katie’s hair from last night, Katie’s look was a nod to old Hollywood with a modern edge. The tone for Katie’s look was set by the impeccable Zac Posen dress, with her hair perfectly complimenting the style with a simple high knot and a hint of texture.”  



Steps:

1. On damp hair, spray a small amount of the Alterna Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist, tousling hair from the ears down to the ends;  drying hair smooth but still leaving some natural texture.

2. Using the Alterna Haircare Bamboo Volume 2 in 1 Volumizer, emulsify this styler into a paste by rubbing it quickly in between hands for a few seconds and then build up volume into the hair.

3. Next, sweep hair into a high ponytail, securing it tightly with a hair tie.

4. Separate hair into two sections and tease each section with a hint of Alterna Haircare Caviar Perfect Texture Finishing Spray.

5. Carefully twist the two sections together, wrapping hair tightly around the base of the ponytail and securing it with hair pins.

6. Finish with the Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Working Hairspray to set the look.

*Alterna Haircare Products are available at AlternaHaircare.com, Sephora/Sephora.com, Ulta/Ulta.com and high-end boutiques and salons worldwide.
