Bring on the chilly temps! We're ready for fall thanks to 7 of the season’s best fall hair trends.
Beauty confession time. We’ll admit it: sometimes we notice the hair style more than the pretty finery and accessories coming down the runway. Make no mistake, we love fashion (we always make note of the pieces we must add to our wardrobes), but the hair style is something that we can easily add to our repertoire—with just the right product and some styling skills. This fall, the seven hottest fall hair looks that made our must-have list will make you want to run for your blow dryer and hairspray. Right. Now. Read on to up your hair style ante.
Fall hair trends: Rag & Bone
“This is an easy one to do, good for the second day of your blowout,” says Rob Pizzuti, one of the owners of Blyss salon in Toronto. “At night, make four or five braids in your hair,” he says. Start the braid not at the root, but at the feature you want to highlight. “Start it at your eyes, like this model, if you want to highlight your eyes, or if you have great cheekbones, start the braid at the cheekbones. This draws the eye to that area,” he says. In the morning, undo the braids, and with a matte-based putty (“Use on that’ll give you grip and texture but without tackiness,” says Pizzuti) work it through your hair to get a tousled look.
Fall hair trends: Alexander Wang
“This is a going-out-last-minute style,” says Pizzuti of this slick style’s simplicity. Start with damp hair and use a strong, high-gloss product (he suggests Davines No 6 Plastenine Glossy) and make a sharp centre part. It’s also a look you can easily pull back into a ponytail, he says, and the very sleek look can work well in contrast with an outfit that is frilly and feminine or a very structured suit, for example.
Fall hair trends: Carolina Herrera
This look is all about volume, and might be easier to achieve by going to your hairstylist, but if you put in the time and effort, you could achieve this style at home. Pizzuti says to start by blow drying your hair to get maximum volume—start with some root-lifting product and focus on making your hair as big as possible. (Before you start blow drying, place the headband around your neck so you don’t have to pull it over your post-blow dry big hair). You can also pump up the volume by using Velcro rollers to add lift at the root. Once your hair is set, brush it out with a dry, powdery building hairspray to get grip and lift at the root, and work the hair back away from face. Tuck the hairband into place so that it’s smooth but don’t flatten out the front (“There’s still some lift there,” notes Pizzuti) and then leave your hands off of the band. “Don’t touch it at all or you will lose the style!” he says.
