    "A good clarifying treatment can be a brilliant start to getting your hair in beautiful shape for fall. Clarifying shampoos or at home treatments help remove product build-up that may be weighing your hair down. By clarifying your hair, you're giving yourself a clean canvas to start fresh with," says Marcos.

  • #2 Haircut 4 of 10

    "The end of the summer is still probably one of the best times to schedule a haircut. Even if you're growing your hair out and just need a trim, by the end of summer exposure to UV rays, chlorine and ponytails have quite likely left your hair in desperate need of fresh ends. A fresh cut will do the trick!" says Marcos.

  • #3 New Color 5 of 10

    "New season, calls in for a color change. A fall color makeover should freshen your look and create richer color. After all, fall exposes our hair to fewer activities that may cause color to fade, so darker color, deeper reds, or brighter coppers will benefit more than when having it during the summer," says Marcos.

    "The harsh elements of summer can strip your hair of protein, causing your ends to fray or your hair to become weak and brittle. Pick up a protein treatment mask to strengthen your locks and prevent further damage," says Marcos.
