Song Hee talks fall hair trends and the products you should try now!


  • Go blonde – Blonde isn’t just for summer. Try lightening your look with a few golden highlights around your face. If you are feeling bold, you might want to add a fun bright color on the ends. Going blonde in the fall also means less upkeep since the color won’t oxidize and turn brassy from the summer sun.

  • Messy buns – They are here to stay, and we couldn’t be happier! Whether pulled up in a top bun or wrapped loosely at the nape of the neck, pull out a few loose pieces around the hairline to frame the face. The simplicity of the style makes this a huge time saver.

  • Coconut oil – I love this natural hair conditioner! I always recommend it to women who have textured, dry, or color treated hair. After towel drying wet hair, put a pea-sized amount (for short length hair) in your hands and emulsify it by rubbing your hands together. Then, run it through the mid-shaft portion all the way to the ends. Remember, a little goes a long way.

  • Oribe Crème for Style – I am obsessed with this line of hair products, which is crafted by Tom Ford. Run it through wet hair and blow dry for a smooth finish with body. I am sure you will love the smell too—it is so luxurious!

  • Dry shampoo – Klorane dry shampoo is an absolute must. Hair doesn’t need to be washed and shampooed every day, so if you have a little oiliness at the scalp, this product is a great hair refresher. I prefer the powder form and not the aerosol spray. You shake the bottle gently and squeeze the bottle to let out a puff of powder. You repeat this process all over the head. The fine powder is absorbed quickly into the hair and will help you look fresh and fabulous.

  • Kiehl’s Creme with Silk Groom – Apply it to the unruly tresses of curly or frizzy hair. Just dab a little in your palms, emulsify, and smooth it over those pesky little fly-aways.

  • Lips – The three big trends are nudes, dusty roses, and berry shades, which all happen to translate well on just about every skin tone. The key is balance: if you go richer on the lips, go lighter on the eyes … if you go for a nude shade on the lips, go for dramatic hues on the eyes.

  • Eyes – Start with a clean bone-colored base shadow on the lid, then gently sweep a taupe shadow into the crease to give your eye depth.   Next, pencil in a deep chocolate liner, curl your lashes and finish with two coats of black mascara. For a more dramatic smoky eye in the evening, simply add a darker cocoa shade in the crease, and blend a rich chocolate liner into your lower lash line.

  • Cheeks – Use a bright pink shade and very lightly apply just a pop to the apples of your cheeks. Then, add a shimmering, peachy pink over the top to softly blend along your cheekbones.
