Best Fall Hair Colors for 2020

Tues, 31 Aug.

Before we know it, the fall season will be upon us. Soon we’ll be breaking out our favorite knit sweaters and putting our summer sandals away only to put on our favorite pair of fall boots. Along with those changes, however, comes the time for us to think about trading in those sun-kissed highlights for darker, moodier shades.

Today, MyCuts will be telling you all about the best fall hair colors of 2020 so you can stay in with the latest trends! To help you get a jumpstart on your new colorway, we’ve consulted with expert colorists to determine their best bets for what the trendiest hair colors will be for fall of 2020. Let’s get started!

The Cinnamon Ombre

In our article, Best Hair Trends and Hairstyles for Fall 2019 we outlined the cinnamon ombre and colorists believe that this popular hair color will yet again rule the fall season in 2020. Expert colorists recommend that medium brunettes add a few cinnamon ombre pieces this fall season to complete their look. It is important, however, that you not do too many because, rather than making your hair look brassy, the goal is to add just a few warm pops that brighten up your face. With some well-placed cinnamon ombre pieces, you can add dimension that makes your hair look fuller and shinier this fall season!

Mushroom Blonde

Another hair color that professional colorists think will be a huge part of the fall season in 2020 is mushroom blonde. In fact, many colorists believe that mushroom blonde and dirty brunette will be everywhere this season, adding the perfect accent to your fall wardrobe. While “blonde” hair color has always been about more golden tones, mushroom blonde tends to be a bit more neutral in hue with lighter ombre highlights woven in to create beautiful dimension, brightening up your face. Try out this trendy hair color this fall season!

Golden Black

Yet another hair color that expert colorists believe will be a huge trend in fall of 2020 is golden black. If your hair color is naturally dark, particularly almost black, colorists highly recommend you go with an almost gold undertone for your hair this fall. You should be careful, experts warn, not to go eggplant which is more of a purple shade. For this reason, it’s best to make sure that your hairstylist doesn’t add red to the hair which could result in a more purplish appearance.

Blood Orange-Red

Let’s be honest: red always has a moment in fall. As one of the colors most commonly associated with the fall season, expert colorists believe that blood orange-red will be a particularly popular hair color this fall season. Expert hair colorists recommend the use of more coppery colors in order to match the changing of the leaves. That being said, bright and rich deep orange hues are also a fun option that you can play with this fall season!

4 Ways to Increase Your Hair Salon’s Online Presence

Tues, 27 Jul.

We live in a digitally-driven world and, in this day in age, it is rare for a consumer to make a decision before first visiting a business’s website. Your hair salon is no exception! Whether we like it or not, the Internet has forever transformed the way that we find businesses and greatly influence our decision regarding booking their services. For this reason, it is crucial that your hair salon has an online presence. Today, MyCuts will be telling you 4 ways that you can increase your hair salon’s online presence, winning more clients and earning your reputation as the best salon around!

Create and Claim a Google My Business Page

When it comes to generating an online presence for your hair salon, there are few better ways to get your business in front of the eyes of customers than Google My Business. Google My Business is a free business profile that gives you the power to easily connect with potential customers across both Google Maps and Google search. Whenever you search a place of business on Google, a display pops up on the right side of the screen (if that business has been claimed by its owner). In this space, the owner of that business can share their business hours, reviews, photos, directions, and, most importantly, their website.

If you have yet to create a Google My Business listing for your hair salon, now is the time to create and claim your page! If you find that Google My Business has marked your hair salon as closed due to COVID-19, you can complete a few easy steps in order to mark it as open:

  • Sign in to Google My Business on your computer
  • Click “Info” on the menu to the left
  • To the right, point to the section “Close this business on Google.” (To expand this section you might need to click the arrow.)
  • Click “Mark as Open”

Harness the Power of Links

Can you remember the last time you completed a social media search of your business? When working to increase your hair salon’s online presence, it is highly recommended that you put yourself in your ideal client’s shoes when completing a social media search for your business. Further, it is highly recommended that you complete this task pretending as though you are a potential client that has never used social media before. Can your ideal customer easily find your booking link? Does the link work, redirecting them to the correct page of your hair salon’s website?

In our experience, it never hurts to do a check of your links every few weeks. Let’s put it this way: if a customer is having a difficult time booking with you online, this greatly reduces the chance that they will follow through and book an appointment with your salon! It is important to remember that a customer’s experience with your salon doesn’t necessarily start the moment they sit down in the salon chair. Rather, it begins the moment that they find you online! Make sure that you harness the power of links and ensure that they are always working and easily accessed by potential customers in order to boost your online presence!

Don’t Forget About Yelp

Although many hair salon owners tend to forget about the power of Yelp, you would do well to remember the power that this platform has when it comes to your salon’s presence online. Yelp offers a space where you can not only showcase your hair salon, brand, and menu of services but it also grants you the power to show off your fantastic customer reviews!

Yelp is not only the place where your previous clients can sing your praises, but it is also one of the best places to advertise your hair salon in the online space. Additionally, when you hold a solid reputation on Yelp, you are much more likely to rank higher in Google search results! Yelp is one of the best places for your hair salon to get noticed online so make sure you do the work to represent your hair salon there.

Put Your Booking Link Everywhere

Finally, now that you have all of your bases covered, it’s time to ensure that you put your booking link everywhere! There are a variety of different ways that a customer can search when trying to book an appointment with a hair salon. For this reason, it is crucial that your booking link is provided and easy to find across all possible platforms. The easier it is to find your booking link on any number of social media platforms, the more likely you are to earn those customers!

Make Booking Simple With the MyCuts App

Now that you know some of the best ways to increase your hair salon’s online presence, it’s time to simplify the booking process! At MyCuts, we firmly believe that a customer’s ability to book with you should be simple. That’s why we created the MyCuts app, where booking clients, scheduling appointments, and controlling inventory is easier than ever!
