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.
Not only is Taylor Swift a talented songwriter and performer, but 2020 has also proven that she could have a second calling as a hair and makeup artist. For this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards, Swift did her own hair, makeup, and styling. Dressed in an autumnal palette of glittery burgundy and caramel tan, she complemented the cozy-yet-glamorous look with a soft, low bun, curly bangs, and dreamy minimal makeup. There’s something slightly nostalgic about Swift’s styling choice: The airy feathered curls almost feel reminiscent of her country-music roots, when she rocked a full head of springy blonde curls, only now it’s with a softer, folky twist.Taking the stage last night, Swift performed her song “betty” off her latest studio album, folklore. The last time Swift made an appearance at the ACM Awards was in 2015. Prior to that, she made her first award-show debut in 2007, when she performed her early hit “Tim McGraw,” making last night’s 2020 performance a very full-circle moment. According to reports by People, Swift actually DIY-ed her glam for the show. We’re not sure if the low-key vibe is a result of Swift spending extra time at home — and, like many of us, taking a break from eyeshadow and hot tools — or if she’s just been feeling the cottagecore vibes thanks to TikTok. Or maybe there’s a little subliminal British inspiration, a nod to the classic English Rose look. The effortless glam feels especially fitting, as Swift has leaned hard into this fresh, simple beauty aesthetic in promoting her folklore album. Due to quarantine health and safety regulations, she also did her own hair and makeup for her “cardigan” music video, pulling her blonde hair into two loosely-braided buns, with her bangs left in the same loosely-windswept wavy texture she wore to last night’s award show.While we keep Swift’s “betty” live performance on repeat, we’re also feeling inspired to lean into a similar air-dried look this fall — and maybe cut some new bangs while we’re at it.Like what you see?

Colorado just became the latest state to make natural hair discrimination illegal in the workplace. The CROWN Act legislation, which was passed by state lawmakers in March, officially went into effect this past Monday, September 14.Colorado State Representative Leslie Herod sponsored the bill and talked about her own experiences as a Black woman in politics. “No one should be penalized for the way their hair grows naturally out of their heads,” Herod told The Denver Post. “We should support and celebrate our diversity, and we should ensure that Colorado is in place to protect folks who are being discriminated against.”> As of today, RIGHT NOW, the CROWN Act is in effect throughout Colorado. No longer is discrimination based on ethnic hairstyles legal in Colorado! crownact @crowncampaign coleg pic.twitter.com/oE4i5FoXNZ> > — Leslie Herod (@leslieherod) September 15, 2020According to the bill, “People of African descent are deprived of educational and employment opportunities because they are adorned with natural or protective hairstyles.” Passing the CROWN Act, which stands for Create a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair, will ensure that Black people are afforded equal opportunities in the workplace, school, housing, and public services in the state.Colorado now joins New York, California, Washington, Virginia, Maryland, and New Jersey in passing the CROWN Act. Currently, seven additional states have pre-filed the act, but not yet passed it. And a staggering 17 states filed the CROWN Act, but did not pass it. Colorado’s latest move is a significant step in the right direction, especially as people come together to fight systemic racism and other discriminatory systems in our country. To help pass The Crown Act in your state, you can sign this online petition or get in touch with your local representative to demand change.Like what you see?

Whether you’re a skin-care obsessive or a moisturize-and-go type of person, there are a handful of ingredients your beauty routine probably isn’t complete without: vitamin C for protection against environmental aggressors, an alpha-hydroxy acids for chemical exfoliation and fading dark spots, and retinol, best known for its ability to treat acne minimize fine lines. But there’s another ingredient you’re probably seeing everywhere right now. Niacinamide is a little less ubiquitous in the skin-care aisle than the aforementioned essentials — and a little harder to pronounce — but it’s well worth making room for in your bathroom cabinet.“Niacinamide is essentially vitamin B3,” says Dr. Ewoma Ukeleghe, medical and cosmetic doctor and founder of SKNDOCTOR. “Clinical studies have shown that niacinamide can improve excess sebum production, the appearance of pores and fine lines, and keep the skin’s barrier intact.” In turn, this prevents water loss from the skin, limiting dryness and irritation, such as redness or itching.According to consultant dermatologist Dr. Anjali Mahto, niacinamide’s oil-balancing properties may also indirectly help with mild acne, but that’s not all. “Topical niacinamide has been shown to reduce redness caused by sunlight and is thought to act as an anti-inflammatory agent,” Dr. Mahto said in an Instagram post, adding environmental protection to the long list of benefits. (That said, niacinamide is not a replacement for sunscreen — nothing is a replacement for sunscreen — so you’ll need to apply sun protection during the day.)So how should you use niacinamide? Professional facialist Kate Kerr advises that the ingredient, which is usually well-tolerated by sensitive skin types, can be applied at any time in your regimen morning or evening but is most beneficial in leave-on formulas, such as serums or toners. Kerr likes dermatologist-recommended SkinCeuticals Metacell Renewal B3, but The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and Glossier Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum both have cult-favorite status at much lower price points.What’s more, Dr. Ewoma says research has shown that applying niacinamide prior to using retinol, which is usually associated with skin sensitivity including peeling and redness, may increase the skin’s tolerance — so if your skin is reactive to retinol, it might be worth smoothing on a product with niacinamide first. Dr. Ewoma also notes that niacinamide is a great skin-care ingredient to use before your period. “I personally love to use niacinamide 1-2 weeks before,” she says. “It helps prevent any breakouts and to manage the increased sebum production many women tend to experience at this time during their cycle.”Lastly, Dr. Mahto suggests looking at the ingredients list of your chosen product. Ideally, niacinamide should feature as the third or fifth ingredient for best results.At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.
