Kim Harper was an educator in the world of upscale hair styling before she opened Kim Harper Salon and Spa 15 years ago. Kim and her team perfectly blend classic and trendy cuts with modern tools and techniques to create styles that are both fresh and timeless for every occasion.
She continues teaching weekly classes to the apprentices at the salon, mentoring the new generation of top stylists. They learn directly from Kim’s experienced hands how to cut, color and style looks that are timeless, effortless, and highlight top trends for hair.
The confidence these classes instill contributes to the relaxing, full service experience of visiting this salon. “We invest in our staff and the salon to ensure our clients have an amazing experience,” explains Tara Thal, director at Kim Harper Salon and Spa.
Kim and her talented stylists were kind enough to share some of the top hair trends for fall.
Texture and Hair Movement
Using an advanced carving comb technique, stylists sculpt hair expertly, adding waves in exactly the spots you want your hair to curve. As a result, even short hair can be fun and full of movement. Applying Kevin.Murphy Smooth.Again to hair while it’s damp keeps curls moisturized. It’s good for all hair types, especially for smoothing out frizz.
Copper and Warm Tones
If you want to choose a new hue this fall, copper and warm tones are the way to go. Auburn color can be tricky to maintain, so the experts at Kim Harper recommend Kevin.Murphy Autumn.Angel, which enhances the warmest tones in the hair while adding that shine that redheads crave.
Refresh with Dimensional Blonde
Even the best blonde hair can look a little fried and dull after a long summer of sunshine and fun. Fall is the time to focus on lowlights and dimension, which refreshes your look while maintaining the blonde locks you love. An Olaplex treatment at Kim Harper protects bonds in the hair and can counteract sun damage from the summer rays. Adding this treatment to any other service at the salon can be a real health boost for your hair.
Tight Fades For Men
Lately, the look in vogue for gentlemen is a tight fade that smoothly transitions to fuller, longer hair on top. If you’ve let your hair grow longer during quarantine this is a great way to clean up and renew your look! You can add more texture and fullness at the top using Reuzel pomade in either the medium or strong hold varieties.
Red is Seriously Hot
While warm copper balayage is absolutely a fall trend, not every skin tone looks perfect with every red hue. It turns out that if you’ve been thinking about going red, there’s a red hair color that will look great on you! Their experienced stylists can help you find the right red to give you that ‘wow’ factor.
Curtain Bangs and Shaggy Layers
Curtain bangs aren’t going anywhere this fall - while they’ve become a trusty constant lately, they will definitely continue to be popular, partially due to how easy they are to grow out and how much body and movement they give your hair. Stylist Katie Rentfrow pairs them with soft, rocker-chic shaggy layers for tons of volume and flair.
Fun Disconnected Pixie Cuts
For the short-haired babes among us, an updated, disconnected pixie cut adds a new twist on this familiar favorite look. For the piecey, textured style, try using Davines medium hold pliable paste, giving even very short cuts lots of body.
Barrettes, Bows, and Head Scarves
Kim Harper features Cincinnati brand, the Bardot Bow Gallery and can help you find a chic accessory that perfectly accents your haircut. There will be double barrettes and big bows galore this fall. Head scarves are another unique hair accessory you can find at the salon to glam up your fall looks.
