Summer is the time for highlights and carefree styles. Between vacation getaways, weekends by the pool, and breaks from school, it’s easy to let your hair get longer and lighter than you planned. Now that fall is here, it’s time to rein in those wild locks and make sure you have a healthy and fashionable cut. Check out these four transitional trends for all colors and lengths.

Repair Sun Damaged Blonde Highlights

Summer is the time for beach parties and tanning by the pool. While you protect your skin with lotion and moisturizing cream, your hair is left to deal with the chlorine, salt, and UV rays on its own. While you might enjoy the highlights in July, it’s time for a look that matches fall.

For natural blondes, ask your stylist for a deep conditioner or detoxifying treatment that will repair dry and damaged hair. This, along with a trim to remove dead ends, will make your hair stronger and appear healthier.

Try Longer Pixie Cuts Instead of a Bob

Now that it’s getting cooler, girls with short pixie cuts can grow their hair out while staying fashionable. Ruby Rose rocks a great example of a hairstyle that rests between a pixie cut and a bob. It’s long enough that you can style it and run your hands through it, but short enough to keep it low maintenance.

Fall is the Time for Rich Brown Colors

As your wardrobe changes into fall colors, you will find yourself choosing deep crimsons, maroons, and dark golds to wear with your boots. These are statement colors that are meant to turn heads as soon as you walk into a room. Clients are even choosing dark purples for their lip and nail colors to embrace autumn. For your hair, consider rich ambers and brown highlights that border on red. This will give your hair depth while accenting your wardrobe and lip color.

Long Bobs that Barely Graze the Shoulder

The bob has made a comeback, but celebrities like Taylor Swift and Kylie Jenner are taking it to the next level. Grow out your bob, so it barely grazes your shoulder, like Kylie does, or feather it with a side part like Taylor. You don’t have to look like a 1920s flapper to rock a bob in 2016, and your stylist should be able to find a unique look that works for you.
