Fall 2015 Hair Trends with Color Expert, Colette Hagiwara

Colette Hagiwara is an owner of Yoshi Hair Studio in Beverly Hills, California. She spent 24 years at one of Beverly Hills most elite salon on Rodeo Dr. before deciding to open her own hair studio. Colette often teaches her superior color techniques at Yoshi Hair Studio and sometimes off location at other hair salons. Color is her passion. She takes her time and is always up to date on the latest trends and techniques so that she may be able to create a customized experience for each individual client. Because Colette has established herself as one of the best colorists in the industry, we asked her about what she envisions to be some of fall’s latest trends.

“Natural is back. We won’t be seeing much of ombre anymore. The key will be to connect the clients color into existing ombre to create a more unanimous look with subtle natural looking highlights for dimension.”

Fall 2015 Hair Color: Fall Trends with Jessica Stein

With the end of summer approaching, we thought it only fitting to bring you our latest thought on what you’ll be seeing in hairHair Extensions in Beverly Hills-Yoshi Hair Studio trends for early fall 2015. We asked our very own Jessica Stein what she envisions for this fall 2015 hair color trends and this is what she said “People will be growing out their bobs, we’ll also see more face framing styles as opposed to blunt style. As for color, I think we see a more natural look coming back. We’ll see more solid natural colors and very subtle balayage”.

Jessica specializes in both styling and color. However, she finds herself gravitating more toward the emphasis of color because she has been mixing, matching, and blending since a young age.

“I love the overall beauty experience that I get to give women in accentuating their femininity”.

For inspiration on each client, Jessica examines the natural color and tries to create something that is easy to maintain for her client’s day to day lifestyle while adding subtle accentuation.

“I try to switch it up for my clients so they don’t get bored with their color. Subtle is key. A few pieces around the face make all the difference in brightening up someone’s appearance. If executed correctly it will brighten up the face without damaging the hair”
