I love watching hair stylist extraordinaire, Ted Gibson on What Not to Wear.  Mr. Gibson helps women transform themselves through new haircuts and colors. And now, the stylist who’s worked with A-list celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway, and Renee Zellweger shares his hair do’s and don’ts for fall.

Do:
Darken your do. “I always say women should change their color at least twice a year,” he says. “During the spring and summer make it lighter, and in the fall, change it to darker tones.”

–Go short … but not too short. “I think shorter hair is great,” Gibson says, “but mid-length hair is really sexy right now.”

–Try the new ombré. “We’re taking ombré to a new level,” Gibson explains. “It’s not necessarily brown with highlighted ends — it can be brown with pink, brown with a little beige on the ends, brown with blue.”  To that end, the stylist suggests dip-dying — “as long as it’s age appropriate,” he warns — or adding colored extensions to hair for a temporary fix.

Don’t:
–Let age define your look. “I say break the rules — just because you’re of a certain age doesn’t mean you need to have shorter hair,” Gibson says. But maintain that hair health: get a haircut every four to six weeks and use a deep conditioner on a regular basis.
