The transition from summer to fall is fun for a lot of reasons. Take how delicious this year’s fall hair color trends sound, which makes an autumnal hair change sound even more exciting. But have you ever thought about exactly why you’re often tempted to change your appearance with the start of a new season? If so, you’re not alone.
“When it’s warm, we think about light bright colors and when it gets cold, we think dark, matte tones.”
“When the weather changes, so does our mindset,” Michelle Cleveland, hairstylist and owner of Hair Addict Salon in New Jersey, told POPSUGAR. “When it’s warm, we think about light, bright colors and when it gets cold, we think dark, matte tones. This change helps most of us feel like we are transitioning our hair the same way we do our wardrobe. It’s really just about fashion.”
Whether we’re talking about fashion, nail colors, or hair, we often associate dark, moody colors with colder weather, and brighter colors with warmer weather. It’s why so many of us like to go blond and wear bold colors in the summer months and why colors like “black espresso” and “chocolate almond” tend to thrive in the winter.
