The sweltering heat of summer is nearly over, and we welcome the dawning fall with open arms. The weather is a bit chilly and the drinks a bit warmer. Now that September has arrived, we’re ready to embrace the season’s upcoming fashions fully. Our wardrobe accompanies the change in season, so it’s only fitting to update our hairstyle too. While bangs and short hair were earlier frowned upon, this year’s IT girl hair trends are ruled by curtain bangs, 90’s blowouts, copper season, and chic bobs.
We’ve compiled the top 5 fall hairstyles you wouldn’t want to miss:
1. The 70s fall style
The 70s are still impacting our fashion choices considerably. The ubiquity of 1970s-inspired hairstyles and colours means they’ll be popular picks again this fall. The chunky bangs, blow-dried, give volume and a bouncy finish to the hairstyle. This ensemble is equally at home in the daytime or at an evening event.
Lily Collin’s long shaggy layers with a delicate fringe are also a nod to the French girl aesthetic.
2. Messy bun
The sloppy bun, fastened with a claw clip or a few pins, always gives an effortless vibe. Messy buns have been in fashion for quite some time and it continues to survive and thrive amidst the new hairstyles emerging every now and then. A timeless classic tied at the nape of your neck is a savior on bad hair days or if you wish to showcase a backless dress. The messy bun is the epitome of: convenience meets style. The look works great for short hair too, with a few strands framing the face.
3. Bobs for the fall
In the spirit of a fresh start this season, a fully square bob haircut is a perfect choice. In the case of heavy hair, you may soften the contour with textures. Bobs are versatile, so no matter what mood you are in, there is a bob cut for you.
Shiny and well-kept, or wild and unruly. You may wear them loose or set them with rollers and a blowout if you like. There are various ways to style a bob cut, and you may try them all this fall.
4. Copper season
The moment we saw Zendaya rocking the copper blowout style, we knew this would be the season of shades of brown.
People are going for warmer tones, leaving the balayage and blondes behind to fit the season. It’s a super-warm, rich tone and is like the sassier sister of auburn. Still, the copper comes in a variety of shades, some of which are browner than others.
This season, it’s all about bangs and fringe. Unmanageable in the heat of summer, they may be handled with relative ease when temperatures drop.
Bottleneck bangs are a popular alternative. Parting the hair in the center to produce a narrowing at the neck is called “bottleneck” bangs. These bangs look wonderful with a blowout or an updo.
The curtain bangs of the 1990s are the style to aim for if you want to grow out your bangs. Long, layered bangs that frame the face heavily are a signature of this style.
