Bundle up and Stand Out: 10 Trendy Hairstyles for the Fall Season

Do you want to do something new with your hair this fall and need ideas? If so, click here to learn about 10 trendy hairstyles for the fall season.

The weather’s getting colder, the leaves are changing colors, and you’re swapping out your wardrobe from the summer. That’s right: it’s fall!

Along with your change of clothes, you should think about a new look for your hair. New season, new you, right?

If you’re stumped on what to do with your hair this fall, don’t worry. Below, we’ll discuss ten trendy hairstyles for the fall season so you look great!

1. Braid Down the Back

This hairstyle is easy to do and works on both short and long hair. All you have to do is grab your hair, braid it down, tie it, and you’re done!

While you may usually go for a neater appearance, consider doing a loose braid instead. The fall aesthetic is laidback, calm, and relaxed, so you want your hairstyle to reflect that.

By doing a loose braid down your back, you’ll give the impression of having just rolled out of bed, but more put together.

2. Messy Bun

Again, the autumnal appearance is anything but rigid and meticulous. If you usually put your hair up in a neat and tight bun, rethink it for the fall.

During this season, you want to wrap your locks up loosely to create a softer and gentler look. You can even pull strands of hair out from either side of your face to frame it.

With wisps of hair floating around your face and a loose bun in the back, you’ll look like the friendly neighborhood librarian instead of the scary strict one.

3. Long Shag Cut

This hairstyle may be from the 1970s, but you know how fashion is; it’s always circular, and recently, long shags have made a comeback.

A long shag cut will give your hair lots of volume, especially if your hair’s usually on the straight side. Consider getting some long side bangs to frame your face; this can help squarer faces not appear as boxy.

Pair this hairstyle with some ripped jeans, band t-shirt, and cozy sweater for the ultimate rock and roll look.

4. Long Hair and Bangs

If you have short hair, you unfortunately can’t do this hairstyle, unless you have extensions and/or a wig.

You can get that perfect fall look if you have long layered hair complete with center-parted bangs. You can also get straight-across bangs; the type that looks best will depend on your face shape.

Try experimenting with bangs if you have short hair. The look will work best if you have a choppy cut that frames your face, as it’ll have a softer look.

5. Long Bob

We know that we’ve said fall hairstyles should be gentle and soft, so you may be wondering why a bob is on this list. The truth is, bobs don’t always have to be harsh.

A long bob can work wonders to accentuate your best facial features. Work in some hair products, and you can make it appear as if you’ve just woken up from staying the night on the beach, especially if you use products with sea salt in them.

The types of products you use will be key since they’ll help break up any harsh areas in your hair. If you have naturally wavy locks, this hairstyle will work even better.

6. Braid Crown

Who says braid crowns are only for summer festivals? Braids always add an excellent feminine touch to any hairstyle, and you can wear them in the fall too.

Braid crowns work best with long hair, but they also look great with short hair. Combine your braid crown with your favorite oversized sweater and leggings. There’s no doubt you’ll look like a pumpkin princess.

7. Headbands

This one is for the lazy girls out there.

If you’re sick of your regular hairstyle but can’t be bothered to switch it up, buy yourself a pretty new hairband or two. Whenever you’re heading out the door, just pop it on your head and you’re good to go.

The best thing about this accessory is that you can wear it for any occasion and with any hairstyle too. Whether your hair’s up or down, a headband can accentuate it.

8. Loose Braids

This hairstyle is also easy and simple to do. Take a few small sections of your hair in the front and loosely braid them so they create patterns in your hair.

However, don’t tie them up at the end. Let the hair untangle itself naturally at the bottom to create a unique overall look.

9. Get Full Highlights

Whether you’re a blonde, brunette, or anywhere in between, full highlights can give your hair some life.

When your hair is one solid color, it tends to seem duller than it is even if you’ve got a nice luster to it. With full highlights, you’ll add dashes of color throughout, which can help bring depth and dimension to your beautiful locks.

10. Try Partial Highlights

If you’re not such a brave person when it comes to coloring your hair, you don’t have to dye it all or get full highlights. Salons have plenty of options when it comes to changing up the color of your locks, all without giving it a dramatic transformation.

For example, you can try babylights, which is highlighting done on tiny parts of your hair, or you can get partial pastel highlights, which can be either subtle or bold, depending on which shade you choose.

Other types of highlights to consider include honey blonde and ribbon. Honey blonde can complement all sorts of hair colors, and ribbon is great if you have curly hair.
