This entry was posted on November 22, 2011.
You may not know who Tracey Cunningham is, but I know you have seen her work! Tracey Cunningham is the Creative Consultant for Color at Redken, and also one of the most sought-after colorists by Hollywood's stars. Her clients sound like a red carpet -- Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Rose McGowan, Nicole Ritchie, and many many more.
Celebs aren't the only one singing Tracey's praises. She just accepted 2011's Hollywood Style award for Colorist of the Year! These awards are given to trendsetters who influence the trends of style and fashion.
We have Tracey's hot color tips for the fall and winter to share with you, too! She has given us the 411 on what's gonna be big for brunettes, redheads, and blondes this season.
“The look of the upcoming season will continue to be the ‘Illumination’ effect. It is the hottest haircolor trend in Hollywood right now and it can be seen on every red carpet! It is a fun look that welcomes the winter months going brunette around the base and gradually going lighter down to the ends of the hair. Time is always of the essence and with the ‘Illumination’ look, you don’t have to visit your colorist as often as you would for regular highlights since color isn’t applied on the roots.”
Redheads - Fun in the Sun for Fall like Isla Fisher
“Isla’s color is one of my favorite looks. The shine in her hair gives her a vibrant look from head to toe. This fall you will see this look on many of my celebrity clients as it’s a very seasonal trend. The color is in-between a strawberry blonde red and a ginger red; it is the perfect touch of ‘fun- in-the-sun look’ after the summer months.”
Blondes - Make A Statement like Emma Stone
“Emma’s new blonde look has been quite the buzz with the media. This look is the result of a few visits to the salon to get it just right. The most important aspect to this look is keeping your locks hydrated to reduce breakage from the lightener. The look has highlights and lowlights throughout the hair and an ultra blonde base.”
