The overarching theme of this season's biggest hair-color trends: they look as good as they sound. With "black cherry," "chocolate almond," and "black espresso" hair colors already gaining popularity among brunettes, it only makes sense that "amaretto biscotti" is the next best fall hair color for blondes. Named after the sweet toasted almond cookie, this fall hair color is a warm golden blond that looks flattering on all skin tones. "This amaretto biscotti shade looks like a combination of light and bright confection, toasted almonds with a touch of nutmeg, and organic sugar cane," said Leianna Hillo, the lead colorist at eSalon . "You can almost taste the fresh-baked cookies as you swish and flip your hair away." Hillo notes that this hair color works best on light to dark blond hair and serves as an easy way to spice up your hairstyle for fall and beyond as we transition into the colder winter months. To achieve this look at the salon, Hillo said: "Start with a medium brown or dark blond base, adding natural copper tones to bring warmth and shine to your look. Then pop in a hint of light-reflecting golden tones for those moments when we need to bring a little glow to our facial features."

Ever since Julia Roberts’ breakout role as a vivacious redhead in Pretty Women, people have been bringing pictures of the actress to her longtime hairstylist, Serge Normant, to get the same treatment. From rich auburn updos to buttery blonde waves, Normant has been there through it all — and then some. Here, he opens up to Refinery29 about how his styling career took off, his one secret to great hair, and what Julia Roberts is really like to work with. The following interview was told to Megan Decker and edited for length and clarity.It All Started In Paris My career as a stylist began in France, where I was fortunate enough to work with Bruno Pittini. When I was hired to work in his salons, that was it for me; I was in Paris, the fashion capital of the world, and working with hair, which was always my dream. While I was there, I [did] a photoshoot for French Elle. The photos were at the back of the book and it wasn’t my best work, but that was the first time I was truly part of a creative process and it changed the way I looked at hair forever.Then in ’89, I moved from Paris to New York, and I actually lived with [makeup artist] Laura Mercier. She introduced me to the editorial fashion and beauty world in America. I say that my big break, of sorts, came about because of the doors she opened for me in the industry. Through her, I met Steven Meisel, and worked with him on the Dolce & Gabbana campaign in ’91, and then in photo spreads in Italian Vogue and Glamour.Southern Charm I was asked to work on a photoshoot for Vanity Fair with Herb Ritts, the iconic fashion photographer, and Julia Roberts was the cover star. At the time, she was working on The Pelican Brief, and Herb wanted to shoot her in Louisiana at this huge Victorian mansion. She was in the middle of shooting the movie, so she had been up all night filming, and we hit it off immediately. I wan’t expecting it at all, but our energies were so in sync.I remember that Vanity Fair shoot like it was yesterday. We were at this big, old house in Louisiana; it was a little run-down and abandoned, but the property was exquisite. Julia arrived and was so gorgeous, even though she hadn’t slept, with this incredible mane of hair. I remember Julia’s big fluffy dress, her sprawled across the grass in the front yard, with this intricate updo. I’ve been working with Julia ever since that day.The Julia Effect There’s no doubt that Julia’s hair is iconic. After her breakout role in Pretty Woman in the early ’90s, everyone wanted that curly, wavy red hair — it was emblematic of the decade. So, of course, when I started working with her regularly, my other clients asked me to give them “Julia Roberts” hair. She’s been a brunette, a redhead, a blonde, and has had long hair and short cuts — she’s not afraid to experiment. Her hairstyle has to be something that’s easy and effortless, not contrived.> View this post on Instagram> > tbt bts fun moment with Julia Roberts ❤️ at the cannes film festival 2016 ? @elizabethstewart1 sergenormantmusthaves> > A post shared by Serge Normant (@sergenormant) on May 17, 2018 at 11:21am PDTThe magic of Julia’s hair is that people catch a feeling from it. They look at a picture of her — whether it’s bright blonde and sleek or messy and held up with a claw clip — and there’s something that people identify with. It’s her glow, and it’s infectious. You might love her blonde and think that the color is amazing, but then the next day she could be back to red and you forget about the blonde. She’s magical that way.It’s All In The Prep I always say that good hair starts with a good haircut. You need a style that suits you and works with your natural texture. You have to have a good rapport with your stylist, because they’re the expert and can help you find the right products for your hair cut and texture. Always bring photos to your stylist, because it will give them a vision of what you’re looking for. Even if they can’t achieve the exact look on your hair, a photo can convey a feeling and that feeling is so important.> View this post on Instagram> > First day in Toronto! @juliaroberts ✨for @homecomingtv press Styling @elizabethstewart1 Makeup @jilliandempsey nails @mazzhanna @engelmanandco TIFF> > A post shared by Serge Normant (@sergenormant) on Sep 7, 2018 at 9:44am PDTFor Julia’s hair, and on almost all of my clients, I’ll use my hair repair treatment. I think of hair treatments like moisturizer for the skin: They help your hair regain any lost elasticity and rehab any dryness. Then, there’s the volumizing mousse, which doesn’t dry hard so you can use it on hair that you’re air drying or blow drying to elevate the volume. I always use the spray from my Dream Big line — it gives your hair a little extra texture and hold. Then, I finish with either a dry oil for some extra shine or some hairspray. I always advise not to use too many products, and to layer them very lightly. It’s really easy to have great hair — it’s all about how you wear it.At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.

New season, new hair.
Changing your hair color is always a big decision, and with dozens of options jumping out at you every day - like "champagne pop" and "honey blond" - deciding on just one fall hair-color transition might be a little tough. But if the internet has taught us anything, it's that there's an easier way of determining these things that don't involve much trial and error: your zodiac sign. Your astrological sign says a lot about you: what you're like, what people might experience when they're around you, and in general, the best words that describe your personality, but we think it's also a great tool to use when determining what color to dye your hair. If your Instagram feed and a constant barrage of insider hair-trend knowledge isn't doing much to help you narrow down a hue, keep reading to see our predictions on what fall hair color you should try according to your zodiac sign.

We spend time on Instagram every season following the best stylists and saving beautiful dye jobs on our quest for the coolest techniques and trends. But Halloween is the one time of year when anything goes — especially when it comes to beauty. Sure, you might have the perfect costume picked out, but what's a Megan Rapinoe get-up without the signature purple pixie to match? It's like being a leopard without its spots, or channeling Cardi B without a colorful wig. Your hair can totally transform your outfit — so if you really want to become one with your costume, consider switching up your color. Fret not if you fear commitment, because there are great temporary color formulas that you can pick up at the last minute. Each rinse-out formula ahead is a fun way to satisfy the crazy hair-color urge you've been having... without having to wear a hat when the weekend is over.

Founder Keenan Beasley compared the line to "ath-leisure" for textured hair.
All her life, writer and producer Elle Johnson just wanted her hair to blend in. It took working on Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker, a show about the tangled politics of Black hair, for her to finally embrace the freedom of standing out—and speaking up.

If banana bread had a publicist (and what a good publicist she'd be at this current juncture), you can picture her trembling at this fall's upcoming hair-color trends - or at least inviting them out for brunch. Frankly, they sound downright delicious. From "Champagne pop" to "espresso black," these hues clearly take inspiration from the best things in life around you. They're also designed for easy upkeep: "My current recommendation to any client would be a low-maintenance hair color, which means switching from permanent colors to demi- or semipermanent color, or balayage," Karissa Schaudt, a colorist at Maxine Salon, told POPSUGAR. "These are created to have a seamless grow-out and require minimal upkeep - especially during a pandemic, when touchups aren't as scheduled." Most importantly, added colorist Rex Jimieson: "This year, we want our color to transition gracefully into fall by staying away from overly cool or artificial colors. They are the hardest to wear as we lose our summer glow in our skin. I would stay away from blue-based dyes especially such as gray or extrastrong ash tones. They are great for editorial moments with the right makeup lighting and editing but are very fade-resistant and harder to wear against natural skin with no makeup." Need more concrete examples? For the most mouthwatering hair colors that are somehow - some way! - even better than they sound, keep reading. We're breaking down the seven biggest color trends to try in the coming months.
