A new season is upon us, and thanks to the summer sun, your hair is definitely in need of mending! So whether you’re looking to try something new, or simply want to know what styles will look best for Labor Day, stay tuned because we are here to help!
Fall’s Greatest Accessory: Hair Color
If you’ve ever had the urge to darken you hair, Fall is the time. With autumn right around the corner, be bold by going chestnut, auburn, chocolate brown, or caramel.
