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.

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.

–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.
