Fall/Winter Hair Color Trend Report

We LOV getting the latest hair trends, especially when it’s from super hair pro Sam Brocato. So what’s the latest? The Color Trend Report that’s what!

Right before the holidays ‘tis the time to rethink haircolor options and add a color-zing that will perfectly compliment any holiday style and make looking good for all those parties effortless.. or as we like to call it, get party central ready!

Marisa Moon of the Sam Brocato Salon gave us a a few great options that will surely add plenty of spice to any color.


This is a new technique that creates an effect that is soft, darker and diffused at the root, fading into lighter and brighter highlights on the mid-shaft and ends. “The great thing about ombre is, it can be subtle and natural or bold and brazen,” says Marisa. Celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Jessica Biel and Alexa Chung are currently sporting variations of ombre hair.

Ombre is a great technique for both brunettes and blondes, and perfect for anyone who:

* Prefers low-maintenance, natural looking highlights (these highlights grow out beautifully and are virtually maintenance free.)

* Is bored with solid dark hair, but needs a boost of color without a total commitment to highlights.

* Has always wanted to be blonde but feels they look “washed out” with traditional all-over highlights. With the ombre technique you can retain natural darkness at the root and add lightness from the mid-shaft to the ends of your hair.


A popular color for the holidays, Red is warm and glowing with tones ranging from bold true reds to soft coppers to a hint of strawberry. “Be inspired by autumn leaves and add richness and warmth to faded-out summer locks,” says Marisa. Schedule an appointment with your colorist to find which hue is best for your skin tone and eye color.

Brocato Color Project

Whether you’d like to enhance your natural color, add dimension, balance your previous color, blend-away grays, or add gloss and long-lasting shine, Marisa suggests a new color formula that heralds professional performance at its finest.

The new Brocato Color Project is a demi-permanent, ammonia-free and MEA-free formula that deposits color without lifting natural pigment. It is infused with Murumuru Seed Butter, Macadamia Seed Oil and Green Tea Seed Oil that aid in imparting moisture rich color. The leading professional demi-permanent brands are formulated with MEA, a derivative of ammonia and a registered skin irritant. Brocato Color Project uses Amino Methyl Propanol (AMP) as its key ingredient, or alkalizer, and AMP is neither an ammonia derivative nor a skin irritant.
