As we gear up for fall, the beauty questions on everyone’s mind are: How can I rehabilitate my hair from the summer sun, and what are the new hair trends?
MATRIX Artistic Director Ammon Carver gave us some tips on how to get our summertime-damaged hair back to health. Read all about it —> HERE!
Rehabilitate Your Hair From Summer
Dry, frizzy ends?
The best way to cure this common beauty problem is simple — get a trim. Ask your stylist to spruce up your locks by taking only a small amount off the ends.
If your hair is still feeling dry, try applying a hair mask like Oribe Beautiful Color Masque on wet hair. For best results, leave it on for 30-minutes with a shower cap to create extra heat and open up the hair cuticle.
Flat hair can be caused by a build-up of salt water and chlorine from summer fun as well as products that combat frizz. After using the clarifying shampoo, give hair a breather on products – less is more when you’re working to get volume back!
An itchy scalp is another common side effect from a summer spent in the sun. Your scalp can easily dry out from the chlorine, frizz products and salt water. My favorite weekly at-home treatment is:
1/2 teaspoon of olive oil
3 drops of vitamin E oil
2 tablespoons of water
Apply on dry hair and let it sit for 20-minutes. Wash and condition hair as normal. This will soothe a dry scalp and add extra moisture to the skin.
Top Styles for Fall
High, low or medium ponytails with a wrapped base (think cuff, leather piece, jewels) are trending for fall. It’s a great way to stylize a simple ‘do.

It’s time to grow out your blunt bangs (just like Ashley Simpson did)! As your fringe gets longer, blend it into the sides of hair by having your stylist cut long layers around the face starting at the bang area. The key is to have the stylist soften the weight of the bang by texturizing the hair.
Perfect for a messy updo or casual hair day, wide headbands (as seen on Lauren Conrad) can instantly dress up a look. This is a must-have hair accessory for fall.
Ombre is making a widespread comeback and more and more women of all ages (including model Lily Aldridge) are opting for this color transition. This time, we’ll be seeing much less dramatic ombre hues on brunettes and blondes alike.
