Tips For The Hottest Fall Hair Trends
Fall is here! It’s time to update your wardrobe, but why not update your entire look? A new, fresh hairstyle could be exactly what you need to fall forward into autumn. Here’s a breakdown of the hottest fall hair trends this season and tips on how to recreate them!
Blunt Bangs – The bang trend is nothing new, but the look has taken a sharp turn. Straight across bangs were all over the runways this fall! Blunt bangs can add edge to a more traditional haircut and accentuate your best features. The key to getting a perfect blunt bang is keeping them thin. If they’re too thick, they’ll overwhelm your face.
Retro Bouffants – Retro hairstyles that were popular in the 50’s and 60’s are making a fierce come back this fall, but with a modern twist. The bouffant, topped off with a bedazzled headband or sparkly ribbon, was a popular look among designers at New York City’s Fashion Week this year. To recreate this look, slick back the sides of your hair and backcomb the top of your head to add some volume. Spray it in place and tack down the sides with some gel and a few bobby pins.
The Dark Ombré – We were talking about ombré last fall and here we are talking about it again. This hair color trend isn’t going anywhere! However, this season’s look is darker, more subtle, and more sophisticated. Instead of the dramatic dark-to-light transition, the new ombré is a super-subtle transition in color.
Sleek Low Ponytail – The ponytail is a classic look when it comes to fall hairstyles, but the way to wear your pony this year is slicked back and polished. To get this look, apply pomade or spray wax to your hair to tame flyaways. Create a deep side part with a fine-tooth comb, pull hair into a low pony at the nape of your neck, and secure with an elastic. Finish with hairspray for extra hold and shine.
