(You will absolutely love them!)
By Christine Gonsalves
Hi folks, I hope this article finds you prosperous and in good health, but mostly in good health!
Before we get into all the wonderful hair colors for this fall, I would like to explain something about last months article, which was appropriately called,
This Months Beauty Column Could Save Your Life….HUH???
Part of the article was inadvertently left out, but because it was such a serious subject (MELANOMA), I would like to include it in todays article, because I would not want you to miss it.
Following, is a brief explanation of how to check your self for Melanoma, and what to look for.
You may have heard about melanoma skin cancer, but like most people, you probably don’t really know how to spot it, but continue reading this article, and you will know what to look for from now on.
Melanoma is the most aggressive form of skin cancer most often caused by harmful UV rays from the sun and tanning beds.
It damages your skin’s DNA and survival rates are grim as the disease advances.
If detected early, melanoma can most likely be cured.
To spot early warning signs, dermatologists have developed the ABCDE method shown here. Do this head-to-toe self-exam once a month and check in with your dermatologists every year.
What you’ll need
Most of us already have these helpful tools on hand: a bright light, a full-length mirror, a hand mirror and a blow dryer (it will help you examine your scalp!).
What to look for
When we say give yourself a head-to-toe exam, we mean examine every nook for unusual-looking moles or brown spots including on your scalp, the front and back of your ears, under your arms, the underside of your breasts, and finger and toe nails.
The Skin Cancer Foundation says to look for “ugly duckling” moles that stand out while “…normal moles resemble each other like siblings. Evolutive
Here are the 5 warning signs you need to look for!

If you’ve been contemplating a shift in your hair color for fall, don’t limit yourself to one shade.
The season’s best new hair colors are multi-tonal—think sun-kissed blonde with deeper honey undertones, hazelnut brown spun with fine streaks of gold and copper enhanced with dark woody layers.
The look is highly individualized, in keeping with fall’s runway themes, and makes for hair that’s rich and uniquely chic.
To achieve the effect, start with a colorist who’s on your same wavelength—and a pro at intertwining highlights and lowlights—then pick a multidimensional shade that appeals to you
- Blonde hair shows off high and low lights with ease.
- Try to keep high and low lights no more than 2-4 shades lighter and darker than your own hair.
- Try soft blonde for highlights and a dark blonde for low lights.
- Blonde hair color with a golden tone also work well for blonde hair.
- High and low lights placed on hair so it “peeks” out will easily grow out and does not require intense maintenance.
- High lights placed at the roots will need regular maintenance every 4-6 weeks, while low lights placed at the root can grow out a bit before they’re highly noticeable.
- Dark hair can span many different shades, so choose high and low lights colors that are 2-3 shades lighter or darker than your natural color.
- You don’t want anything too extreme if you’re aiming for a natural look.
- If you prefer a stark contrast, you can go extreme, but keep in mind that your hair will have to be bleached in order to achieve significantly lighter hues for high or low lights.
- If you already have dark hair and do not want to darken it further, request your hair stylist to implement the technique of applying low lights, only with a darker shade, than she is doing your high lights (this color might very well be lighter than your base color).
- For high lights, work with warm shades of brown, red and dark blonde.
- For low lights, copper infused colors will add depth without being too severe.
- Check with your stylist, and she will advise you on whether you should use warm or cool tones.
- Red Hair, with high lights and low lights.
- •(Red hair works with many different hues for high and low lights).
- Copper, gold, blond and darker shades of red all create warmth around the face and add to the glow of red locks.
- Have high lights placed a few inches from the roots, so the overall red shade of hair can be the focal point of the look.
- Red hair will show high and low light growth easily because it provides a bright base color, so placement of high and low lights should be very thin and well-blended throughout the hair for a sun kissed look that will not be apparent after some growth.
