Fall beauty trends to cozy up with

It’s no secret that we are lovers of all things fall—from the cooler temperatures that allow us to finally break out our favorite scarves and shamelessly order pumpkin spice everything to the bold fashion trends the season brings in, we are here for it all. To celebrate, we consulted our beauty muses at Progressions Salon Spa Store in Rockville to find out about the best fashion, makeup and hair looks for the season. Read on to learn more, then schedule your appointment with the best hair salon in Bethesda to get your autumnal glow on.


First things first, let’s talk fall hair color trends. Red hair is having a moment in 2018 and it’s only getting bigger this season—and it’s easy to see why. Going ginger is actually very versatile, offering hues from fiery blazing copper to deep red wines to strawberry blondes and everything in between.

If you are curious about whether taking the rouge plunge is a good idea, our artists can give you a consultation to recommend a shade that best fits your skin tone and eye color. We can also make sure you have all the products you need to keep your red vibrant all through the season and beyond.


This season, the gorgeous blowout is going strong. Loose curls and middle parts are reigning supreme and we are loving it. Another trend coming in hot? Fun accessories. Whether it’s ribbons, jewels, bows or flowers, accessories are the perfect way to add some unique flair to your look.

Ponytails are also having a moment, and the possibilities are seemingly endless. One gorgeous option is the slick ponytail—a super chic look for a more formal event like an autumnal wedding or dance. On the other end of the spectrum we have the messy bun. This look is as gorgeous as it is simple and complements most face shapes. And let’s be real—nothing screams “fall” like an oversized sweater, some tights, cute boots and a low messy bun.


Speaking of oversized sweaters, this is one of our favorite fashion trends of the moment. Throwing on an oversized sweater, top or tunic is cozy and comfortable and can be dressed up or down. One less predictable fashion trend we are seeing this season is animal print everything. From shirts to handbags to shoes, trendsetters are channeling their inner wild child and going bold with the animal prints.


As far as makeup goes, this season calls for us to go bolder and bolder with red lips, bright shadows and tons of shine. We love Makeup Factory for their fierce color pallets that allow for endless self-expression—so whether you are feeling witchy or angelic, there’s a color to match your mood.

And since bold is in, now is the season to up your eyebrow game and bring some fierceness to your everyday look. Stop by our boutique to try The Brow Gal products and find out which one can elevate your brows and give your entire look an extra pop.

And when it comes to a beautiful face, the best foundation really is healthy, fresh skin. As the temperatures cool down, our skin needs more moisture to stay healthy. We recommend a HydraFacial, which delivers antioxidants, peptide-rich serums, hyaluronic acid and more, in one quick treatment. It helps hydrate your skin, targets sun damage from all those summery days well spent in the sun and helps with fine lines and wrinkles. Learn more about our HydraFacial here!
