Summer/Fall 2008 Hair!

Summertime is officially here and with the new season comes the yearning for a new haircut and style. We've interviewed a dozen of the hottest salons in Toronto and we've come up with the top celebrity haircuts and styles and most requested colours, as well as the freshest hairstyle predictions for Fall '09.

The top requested celebrity haircuts are the short Katie Holmes bob; the Victoria Beckham bob which is longer at the front with face-framing layers, and shorter at the back; the Agyness Deyn androgynous short cut; and the Rihanna bob. As you can tell, the look for the next little while is 'something different', as Lora Sousa from Fringe Salon filled us in on.

Although shorter cuts are high on the style radar these days, for those of you who like to keep your mane lengthy, Puja of Appearances Hairstyling/Beauty Salon says that the top styles are side-swept bangs (especially for evening events), soft Angelina Jolie-esque curls for the fall, and the classic summery wave à la Olsen twins.

In terms of colour, this summer the Paris Hilton solid platinum blonde is making a comeback, as well as tons of requests for deep chocolates, apricot golds, and vibrant reds, says Alyssa at Hair Sprung.

Mary Louise from GLO Salon was kind enough to poll her staff regarding Fall 2008 trends in haircuts, and adds that Madonna and Nicole Richie are both top requested celebrity haircuts. In terms of colour, GLO says we'll be seeing an imitation of the "spice rack" with rich brunettes and bold reds, but adds that blonde will never be out of fashion, especially the much loved glamerous 1920s Hollywood platinum. GLO also gave us the scoop on the new and hot fall styles, including an interesting turn towards hairstyles with random straightened and curled pieces. As a rule of thumb, Mary tells us that hair usually follows the cycle of long and straightened cuts to short and blonde bobs and then again towards layered cuts. Check out GLO salon if you're looking for a hot new look!

In general, we've been hearing that the outlook for Fall '09 is a continuation of the short brunette and amber cuts, as well as long, feminine, brunette and blonde curls. Stay tuned!
