And now So, how about the world of color? His work has been featured on TLC, in New York Magazine and Elle, Colorist John Blue from Maxine Salon is most excited about a new concept he's been perfecting called "Base Depth Shadowing" and is more than ready to start embracing the warmth. Trust us, you'll be much more prepared to face that increasingly cold weather with some richer, warmer tones added to your look.

Base Depth Shadowing is perfect for people who are overly highlighted from the summer still says Blue; basically anyone with a summer's worth of foils that are losing their appeal. John applies a semi-permanent to the root, bringing it down 4-5 inches into specific sections of the hair and adds balayage to softly connect the look.

John's fall slogan is "Embrace the Warmth". Suggesting to try chocolate and auburns incorporating in copper, chestnut and caramel tones. He also says, it's time to embrace wheat and butter tones; ash, beige, and all their chilly cousins have no place in fall hair color palettes. Blondes should lean a bit more toward butterscotch, toffee and the like, and leave cold faded tones behind.
