Even though it's still rather warm, it is time we bid summer adieu. So as summer winds down and fall comes knocking at your door, it's time to visit the salon to get those ends that have been damaged by the chlorine, sun, and saltwater trimmed off. And that's probably when you think of getting a trendy new hairstyle.
The hair and makeup ideas we need for the upcoming months can be found on seasonal mood boards, which feature images from various fashion events. Should you go for a mohawk? Have you decided to go red at last? The potential outcomes are countless. Here are a few of the best fall hair trends to help you find some inspiration.
Extra Long Fringe
The trendiest way to wear fringe this season is to have it fall just above your eyes. The long bang with a shaggy cut is adaptable and looks gorgeous as it grows out. Maintenance is easy, too, as all you usually need is a good quality leave-in cream and you're good to go.
Draped layers, which frame the face, is a style with roots in the late 1990s and early 2000s that is making a solid comeback (think of it as a modernized “Rachel” from “Friends” cut). The layers are cut around the face at varying lengths, which accentuate facial features and give movement to the hair. The result is a striking appearance, with a cascading pattern.
Get a lightweight styling lotion that provides hold and shine and protects your hair from heat damage. Apply it and use a round brush for styling, which should be stroked inwards to accentuate all the layers around your face.
It's true that lob haircuts will always be in vogue, but there's no harm in trying something new every now and then, like the asymmetrical lob, which is a hot trend this year. Featuring lots of layers, the style is typified by having one side cut at an angle. Alternatively, both sides can be cut at varying lengths, thus giving a striking and contrasting look. It's the perfect finishing touch for our more subdued fall wardrobe.
The sliced bob is a short to medium-length haircut with a blunt end and is therefore both classic and fashionable, making it a favorite among A-listers. The beauty of the style is that the slicing technique causes hair to have less weight, without the addition of layers. This gives the hair a more sleek appearance. Be sure to use a high-quality leave-in-conditioner to give your hair that just-out-of-the-salon look by making it shine, while protecting it from pollutants and heat.
In contrast to the sleek buns that have been trending as of late, the messy bun is an ever-present classic that can be worn everywhere. Hairstylists agree that the trend is coming back around, and they predict that the messy bun will be popular again (especially on women with shorter hair).
Not only does an undone bun look beautiful with a high neckline or backless dress, but it's also an excellent choice for days when your hair just won't cooperate. Wearing your hair in a low, untidy bun at the nape of your neck is a chic, carefree way to show off your natural style. Get it now and just leave a few strands loose to make it look carefree!
The style of baby bangs is a bit unconventional and may not appeal to many. However, it's certainly trendy this fall. Even though the style was originally seen on high-fashion runways (its intrinsic edge literally oozes haute couture), it has now fully integrated into the sphere of A-listers.
Stars like Zendaya, Emma Watson, and Sofia Boutella gracing red carpets while wearing these powerfully blunt bangs have confirmed that the style is back again. If you currently have fringe and are in need of a change, this is a fantastic choice to consider.
