In the mood for a nail art detox? There’s no better time than now. We get it! The stress triggered over having to choose one solid fall-appropriate nail color can prove to be overwhelming when there are so many pretty options to choose from. We’ve narrowed down four worth giving a try.
Almost Black Nails
Dark and moody nail polish colors always make a comeback whenever the weather cools down. Whether you want to try deep berry shades, midnight blues or dark forest greens, there’s a shade out there you’re bound to make your go-to fall color.
Navy blue nail polish is great option for those that shy away from really dark nails. The color also makes for a great work appropriate option and is a nice way to wear blue nails without feeling too silly.
Platinums and golds look beautiful on every single skin tone. Metallics are a fun way to incorporate some bling without smothering yourself with accessories.
With the vast variety of nail polish colors in existence, classic red hues have seen better days. Quit neglecting that old red bottle of lacquer and utilize the shade to compliment an outfit for a quick dose of instant chic.
Gym hair, dirty hair, frizzy hair… don’t care. This messy bun hairstyle, as seen on the models strutting in Celine‘s Spring 2014 show, reminded us of how chic you can make a bad hair day look.
“I took a modernist approach to the classic bun at Celine, by creating a simple and slightly messy knot. I wanted to make sure the look remained soft, so the hair was not pulled too tight and a few flyaways were left untouched. The end result should feel soft and pretty.” – Redken Creative Consultant, Guido.
This one is basically a total no-brainer! Here are his very easy and straight-to-the-point steps:

Naturally, big 70s hair was a must for the models rocking Jenny Packham’s Spring 2014 collection inspired by the decade of disco. TRESemmé stylist Jeanie Syfu created a voluminous, curly look emulating the era precisely. Here are her recommended steps:
