In case you may not have noticed, the ‘80s are trying to slowly slip back onto the trend list.

A client shows off the big braid trend.

However, balayage and ombré are not going anywhere just yet. Right now, it’s all about melting colors together, which makes sure there are no root lines. These styles are great for the busy woman on the go.

Bobs and “lobs” – long bobs, for those who aren’t in the know – are huge for shorter hair. I love these. They’re always trendy, they look great, they’re easy to fix and maintain, and you can easily transform your bob from day to night with a toss of your hair or by throwing in a few curls.

Another bold-but-trendy ‘80s-esque modern look that’s making a comeback this year is the bang. Yes, I said it. Bangs. No, not the barrel curl bang that we all don’t want to admit we did. Nor the bangs we stood straight up and slammed in a book. No, these are long, lash-skimming, soft bangs.

As the seasons change, blondes can go with a soft color and a shadow “rootagé” to tone down that summer platinum. The calmer color will soften faces for fall. And smoky cool tones add dimension for our deep brunette and black-haired beauties. One trend that I think is fun that reminds me of medieval times is the puffy braid. This big, loose braid is trending for longer hair. Create your own look. Have fun with it.

So there you have it, ladies! Late summer and early fall style: the trendy bob and soft-flowing, color-melting locks with soft bangs that you can throw into a big braid.
