With the change in weather, the falling leaves, and the pumpkin spiced everything, are you looking to change your hair color too? At Studio Within, we have picked what we predict will be the four favorite colors this fall. Our color choices will keep you looking fresh, vibrant, and cool this fall.
Our first choice is jet-black. Sounds a little scary at first, right? Well if you mix that inky shade, you can create an unexpected cool look. Just remember to keep make sure that the hair tone matches your eyebrows! If you feel that jet-black is too bold of a choice for you, warm it up with some chestnut highlights!
Our second choice is called Golden-Bronde (brown-blonde). This color is perfect for all hair types from straight, or wavy, to curly. As your hair grows, the lighter pieces of blonde will blend beautifully with your base color, leaving the look natural and sleek.
Our third choice for fall faves is called Warm Copper. This tone is the perfect blend of dusty rose and deep auburn, the perfect choice for the transition to fall. The vibrant mix of hues will pop and resemble falling leaves. One tip we recommend is to prevent this color from falling flat by keeping the choice of red as vibrant as possible.
Our final fall fave is the traditional platinum. We know you probably think this is just an old summer fab, however, we just cannot get enough of this summer trend. You can always cool it off with an ice-shade of platinum.

What is DevaCurl and why do I recommend it to my clients?
DevaCurl was created by Lorraine Massey, a fellow curly haired girl, who was sick and tired of ruining her natural curls with all sorts of dehydrating products. With a mission to solve the problem of dehydrating or applying heat to curls, she came to discover that sulfates, which are found in most shampoos, dry out and remove the natural moisture found in hair. DevaCurl products are therefore created without sulfate, paraben, and silicone. Instead, DevaCurl leaves curly hair feeling moisturized, hydrated, and frizz-free! (The product is also botanical and smells great!)
What is the DevaCut and how is it different from an ordinary haircut?
The DevaCut is different from regular haircutting techniques because usually hair is cut wet, but with the DevaCut technique, curly hair is cut dry. Why? Because when curly hair is cut wet, we won't know how it will look after it dries! Also, wetting down the hair gives the false impression of how much hair is being cut. While it may only look like a little is being cut while wet, it may appear to be more when the hair dries (which is why people tend to leave haircut appointments scared and worried about what will happen when the hair dries naturally). This wet-cutting technique could leave customers with uneven lengths. DevaCurl's new method of cutting hair has become quite revolutionary and is the reason Advanced Deva Curl Inspired Stylists, like myself, are highly sought out.
