BIG CHANGE: High-im­pact red This bold hue is hav­ing a pop-cul­ture mo­ment thanks to Un­break­able Kimmy Sch­midt, Anne of Green Gables and the X-Files re­boot. It’s also the model state­ment shade as seen on run­way vets Karen El­son, Rianne van Rom­paey and Madi­son Stub­bing­ton. HOW-TO: Con­fi­dence is key to pulling off this look-at-me shade. “You have to wear it and not let it wear you,” says Luis Pacheco, colourist and owner of Toronto’s Medulla & Co. He sug­gests adding tone-on-tone di­men­sion to locks us­ing free­hand bal­ayage hair paint­ing.

LOW-RISK CHANGE: A colour re­fresh Try the cool kid of hair colour: écaille, or tor­toise­shell. This in­sou­ciant mélange of golden blond and honey high­lights and caramels is fall’s an­swer to om­bré. HOW-TO: Ask for a combo of baby­lights (thin strands of high­light) and bal­ayage (fo­cused around the face) for a blended look, says Lon­don-based Jack Howard, of­fi­cial colourist for Next Model Man­age­ment. Keep tones in the same fam­ily and only a few hues lighter or darker.

ZERO RISK: Tem­po­rary sparkle If your length and colour are on lock for life, up­date your look with state­ment ac­ces­sories. HOWTO: At Dolce & Gab­bana, Guido Palau, global cre­ative di­rec­tor for Red­ken, pinned hair into loose chignons, spritzed on fin­ish­ing spray for tex­ture (try Red­ken Pil­low Proof Blow Dry Two-Day Ex­ten­der) and then added jew­ellery. “It’s not per­fect, and the ac­ces­sories aren’t per­fect, but that’s what gives the look its charm,” he said of the ro­man­tic, su­per-fem­i­nine style.
