“As Carrie Mulligan takes lead in her new movie Far from Madding Road, viewers will be introduced to a new hair color,” shared Paul Labrecque, the award-winning hair visionary named a “Top Stylist” by Vanity Fair. With truly cutting-edge techniques, a trained eye for color and style and celebrity client list, Labrecque is a legend in the world of great hair. The Master Stylist has refined his skill in salons all over the world, including his own sought-out shop in Manhattan.
In talking about summer hair trends, Labrecque continued, “Yes, gone is the short blond crop that was reminiscent of the Mia Farrow cut and color in Rosemary’s Baby. What is causing a bigger stir now is the change to a darker hue of hair, leading so many to ask: Is brown the new trend?”
“The answer is an overwhelming yes. Chocolate brown is a trend that you will be seeing big in films, on the runway, and in the street for summer fashion. The secret to this color working is that the color brown should never be flat. It should have rich undertones of sable as well as flecks of strawberry and gold.”
Labrecque revealed, “The key to looking real as a brunette always lay in the ends of your hair. They should never be darker than the root and should always have a sun-kissed glow. The drama in Carrie’s style is brought even further with the bold middle part that makes her look current, dramatic, and breathtakingly different.”
Book your appointment to let Labrecque transform your look. “I know it’s summer, girls, but let’s do the opposite of the norm,” he prodded. “Overly blonde can look dry and feel lifeless. Step into the trend by asking your colorist how a shade of brunette could work for you.”
