Fall is a season that never fails to bring in new trends — especially when it comes to hair. Last year’s top fall hairstyles included slick hair, curls, plaits, knots and retro waves.
But a new season brings with it a wealth of possibilities. The change in weather is sure to bring some bold new looks. For those of you thinking about mixing up your hairstyle, there are plenty of fun and inventive new trends to choose from.
Are you having trouble deciding what style to go with this fall? Here are 7 trendy fall hairstyles you need to know about this season. Read on to learn more about the most popular hairstyles this season.
1. Curly Bangs
Every woman considers getting bangs at some point in their lives. Why not go for it this fall? Curly bangs are one of this year’s go-to fall hairstyles.
Bangs can bring a fun new look, especially for women who typically have longer hair. Longer bangs can also hide foreheads and minor imperfections. If you’re more conservative, you can ease into this look with a long fringe.
Curly bangs work with any hair texture. You can create beautiful looking curls by using a curling iron and perfect the look with curly hair masks. A layered cut will also help women show off their natural curls.
Not fully committed to bangs? You can go for side-swept bangs instead. They aren’t as high maintenance and look great under fall hats.
2. Stretched Waves
Looking to get the most out of your hair? Consider stretching.
Stretching is when you expand your hair to maximize its length. There are several different benefits to stretching, from making your hair less tangled to helping you retain length.
Stretched waves are one of this year’s most popular fall hairstyles. This signature 70s-style incorporates long, thick waves. Stretched waves can look elegant while also giving off a laid-back California vibe.
The best part? They require little to no effort to maintain.
The waves should maximize volume and have definitive and wispy layers. Because they require a longer hairstyle, extensions might be required. Let your curling iron do the rest.
3. Vintage Buns
Every season seems to bring back some popular throwback hairstyle. This fall is no different.
Vintage buns are a classy hairstyle that brings forth old-school techniques from the 1940s. This hairstyle includes a pin-up double-bun.
You will need to part your hair in the middle or do a few twists on either side. Add some hairspray and a couple of sets of hair extensions.
If you want to keep it more casual, you can opt for a messy bun instead. This bun is notable in that it has a larger height at the head’s crown.
Make sure to keep the buns large. This will help you look more modern while still maintaining your vintage look.
4. Edgy Pixie
The edgy pixie is a surefire way to make a splash this fall. This bold look is a twist on the traditional pixie haircut.
This is newer take on the increasingly popular pixie haircut. The back still incorporates the signature pixie shortness, while the front uses face-framing bangs.
The bangs should be asymmetrical and can be worn in a variety of ways. You can push the bangs to one side, let them hang in the front, or even have them shaggy. Use a firm formula to help your hair maintain your desired look.
It’s a fun, playful look for people with fine hair. This look is best for women that are looking to showcase their dainty features.
5. Defined Part
It seems like everywhere you go you see males rocking the defined part. You know the style: short sides with a shaved line and longer top.
The defined part is an easy way to contrast the top and sides of your hair. Women can get in on the fun with a defined part of their own.
Comb the hair over to create a side part. This will give your hair a polished and elegant look. You’ll also want to make sure that your hair is pulled toward the back of your head.
You also want to finish the defined part with a polish. The polish will keep your hair in place. Be careful of products that will make it look too oily. You want a look that looks well-maintained but not wet.
6. Low Ponytail
Ponytails never seem to go out of style. They’re one of the easiest hairstyles to maintain. If done properly, they can also make for a great fall look.
The low ponytail is one of the simplest fall hairstyles. It creates a grown-up look while also maintaining a casual vibe.
It also works with almost any facial structure. You can alter it to fit your face whether you have a long, square, or round face.
Simply pull up your hair at the crown of your head and wrap it around an elastic band. You should then have 1-inch sections with elastics down your ponytail. You can make the ponytail bubble by running a styling iron down the pony and bending it under the ends.
The product is key to maintaining the pony’s style. Strong oils and hairspray are preferred.
7. Shaggy Bob
The shaggy bob is one of the most dynamic fall hairstyles. It’s a hybrid between a bob and a shag.
The bob should fall right above the shoulders. This length should give you ample room to style and texturize the rest of your hair. The back of the hair is then cut at an angle to create layers.
The messy look works well with many fall hair colors and outfits. It’s also easy to maintain. You can use a straightener if your hair gets too out of control.
