TRANSITION HAIR: fall styles to wear NOW!


Can you believe it?  We're cruising through another incredible Maine summer, but fall's fashions have already been unveiled on catwalks around the world.  We've been seeing some seriously amazing autumn trends that work right now as well.  Update your style with something that will carry your coif courageously into the cooler weather; it doesn't take much!  Read on for some of our favorite transitional trends!


Personally, I'm always a fan of some fabulous fringe.  It's one of the easiest and least committal ways to spruce up your style, and this fall its all about framing that beautiful face of yours.  And be bold!  The most current way to wear fringe is heavy and rounded, as seen on the runways of Marni, Elie Saab, and Kate Spade.  So haute.

This cut has been EVERYWHERE lately, and with good reason!  This short and soft crop is so easy to wear, and is universally flattering!  The shape follows the roundness of the head, and can be worn a million and one ways.  You might remember this style from Krissy's cut awhile back, and its been gaining popularity since!  Talk to your pro about what works best for you.  GORGEOUS!

Long fringe, smoothed texture.

Balmain f/w '12, textured layers.

Piecey fringe, soft volume.

Sharp and polished with fringe.


Sleek, slick, and smooth is the name of the styling game next season.  Not looking to rid your self of length?  STYLE IT, my dear! Go for understated glam with glossy locks; works on all lengths from short to long, and can even be incorporated with a ponytail!  With lower humidity on the way, this style is a welcome contrast to the summer's relaxed texture.

Make Me MAUVE: Krissy Amazes Yet Again!

Hello, beauties!

So unless you've been living under a rock (or haven't been following our fringe in the past), you know that pastel hair is all the rage.  Over the past several months we've seen an increase in iridescence and crops of cotton candy colors topping the tresses of trendsetters everywhere.

Pastel street style!

Model, pale pastel lilac

Model, deep lilac

Model, intense lavender

Now, anyone who knows our darling Krissy knows that she can, and more importantly will, pull off any amazing transformation under the sun.  A change like this is reminiscent of a few months back when we lopped a glorious seven inches off Krissy's flaxen locks.  Well, she's done it again.  This time with the softest rosy lilac:  ITS MAUVELOUS!


So here's what we did:

We started by pre-lightening Krissy's natural blond hair to a clean pallet of all over white blond.  To add dimension we low lighted with dark neutral blond vertical foils placed at a diagonal angle, using the same dark neutral blond to create depth at the root.

"By depositing the neutral over platinum blond, we created cool base and dimension to put our pink over," explains Krissy, "That way there's so many different levels of depth for the pinks to pick up on."

This look can be easily tweaked based on your desired outcome, as well.  Leave out your lowlights for a more all-over wash of pastel.  Deposit a warmer tone and your pinks will pick up the gold and there you have surefire sherbet!

Here's my question for Krissy: Why'd you do it?!

"Its something I've been wanting to do for a LONG time!" says K-Huff, "Its a bright bold color while still looking so soft and feminine."

Come see us soon!

NAILED IT: whats new and now in nails!

Hey darlings!

We at Ferricchia are excited to announce that we are offering nail services!  We proudly carry Essie nail polish and Young Nails Gel polish, and this week to welcome our natural nail artist, Tori, we're going to talk about trends for your tips and fun for your fingers.  Whats new and now in nails?  Tori is here to tell us!

Essie summer collection!

Brighten up:

Its summertime, our digits are on display, so why not make them pop?   "Orange is everywhere," Tori says, "go by your comfort level."  Soft, peachy oranges and corals look great with a tan, and is a sweeter alternative for those shy of brights.  Look for an orange with red undertones for pale skin.

Turquoise is still having its moment, too, but look to all things aqua-inspired to keep it fresh.  Periwinkle, ocean blue, and deep sea green all offer a cooly similar vibe to the new sea-foam standby.

Lately we've been seeing an increase in glitz and glitter; everything has a layer of light reflection over it!  The best part about summertime sparkle?  "Its a fun and unexpected way to dress up your nails," Tori says, "perfect for wedding season!"  Layer it over a soft, pale pink for a more formal venue, or simply spice up your current fave!

Another on-trend treat for your tips?  Adding an accent nail!  "Accent nails are changing," according to Tori, "for instance, a french-manicure with a bright, or just one nail glittered."  There are no rules, just fun!
