Backstage at New York Fashion Week, my girl Megan McIntyre (from Daily Makeover) recognized an emerging trend for fall 2010: funky, chunky haircolor.
“Looks like it’s time to break out the Manic Panic. The big beauty trend for hair at Fashion Week was bright, chunky streaks of color that brought to mind punk-inspired street style circa 1996. At the Cynthia Rowley Fall 2010 fashion show, Eva Scrivo for Wella Professionals custom colored hair extensions in shades of emerald, lapis, amethyst, navy and turquoise to replicate the rich jewel tones present in the collection. Each hair extension was completely saturated with professional salon haircolor and then woven into the hair and styled, creating an element of surprise and intrigue when models hit the runway.
Super stylist Ted Gibson for beauty.com went for a version of the trend that was a little easier to DIY at the Vena Cava Fall 2010 fashion show (shown left). He used Streekers to color hair extensions in shades of hot pink, purple and green, then pulled them back into the models’ slightly mussed ponytails to give a “downtown, cool feel,” to the otherwise equestrian look.
We think this is one trend that just might hit the trifecta of translating in all three worlds: runway, red carpet and real world. This is the second season funky color has been featured at Fashion Week (the girls at the Spring 2010 Proenza Schouler fashion show rocked lovely lilac streaks) and Lady Gaga recently caused a stir at the Grammys with her own spin on the Crayola color trend. Adding a bright streak of color to your coif is an easy way to add a hip edge to your regularly scheduled hairstyle without a huge commitment. Now all you really have to decide is which happy hue you want to adorn your hair with.”

Yesterday, Nicole Richie popped by the Cosa Mesa Bloomingdale’s to promote holiday pieces from her House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line – and debuted a brunette do.
After the event, Nicole tweeted “OH! & P.S. I went brunette. I feel smarter already.”
Last week while in town for New York Fashion Week, I shared a delish breakfast with beauty friends Amber, Nancy and my mane man, Jason Backe.
You might remember Jason from a post earlier this year, when the two of us hung out watching the Grammys – and he up and decided to dye my hair.
Jason is one of the most sought after colorists in New York, where he co-owns the Ted Gibson Salon. His list of celebrity clients (Anne Hathaway, Renée Zellweger, Amerie, Idina Menzel, Eltra Rossalini, and Lake Bell) reads like an issue of Us Magazine.
As if it’s even possible, Jason’s schedule book is about to get even more, well, booked. In the October 2009 issue of Allure Magazine, he was named “the best of the best.” If you’re in or passing through the NYC area, do yourself a favor and make an appointment. Get in where you fit in. Jason’s worth the wait.
Check out Jason’s blog on Daily Makeover and follow my mane man on Twitter.
Tis the season for going back to your roots.
Yesterday, Tyra let her real hair down on the fifth season premiere of her daytime talk show. Not to be outdone, Kim Kardashian said bye bye to blonde and returned to her naturally dark do.
I have to admit that I saw this coming. The lighter locks were just okay, but she is ten times more stunning as a raven-haired beauty. Shake what Kris Jenner gave you, Kim!

Kim Kardashian’s new blonde hair got me thinking about whether or not her makeup choices have changed. Is she using different hues to compliment her new do?
For the answer, I contacted my friend and Kim’s makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic. He told me, “Her makeup is not drastically different. We’re keeping in the warm tones for a softer look. Bronze skin, softer lashes, softer brows. Peachy tones. It’s so much fun doing her makeup as a blonde!”

Kim Kardashian is a blonde. And unlike last time, it’s not a publicity stunt (okay, maybe it is) or some belated April Fools joke. This time around, it’s for real for real. She writes on her blog:
This time it’s for real, guys! I went blonde!!! I had been considering it ever since I wore that blonde wig, and I just decided to go for it!! What do you think? I am really loving it! My hairstylist Clyde Haygood orchestrated the whole thing and Rebecca from Goodform salon dyed it! I’m debuting my new look at the Teen Choice Awards tonight!
