Sometimes it’s the more subtle changes to our beauty routine each season that can drastically alter our look – like swapping out a summer-ready coral lipstick for a more fall appropriate deep berry stain. But when it comes to switching up our hairstyles, not everyone is quite as committed to getting a dramatic cut every few months to keep up with what’s on trend (though we’re all about the
short haircut for fall). We chatted with Tyler Colton, Schwarzkopf Professional’s celebrity stylist, who was in town from L.A. earlier this week, about easy (and non-committal) ways to upgrade your hairstyle this fall.

1. Deep side parts. "The best way to do it is right over the high point of your eye brow," says Colton. "Just run your finger straight back and that will be your deep side part. Or even doing a side part and pulling it back into a low pony. It’s more on the back of your head versus a side or off-centre pony. You’re using more of the part as your accent."

2. "It’s a good time to grow out your bangs," he explains. "We’re kind of getting rid of having bangs or a fringe and are growing them out. Maybe that’s why the
ponytails are really tight," he says, adding that an easy way to hide a bang grow-out is with a slick, tightly pulled-back pony.
3. "Classic bobs are in, but still [they have] a very relaxed feel. It’s not the Sassoon bob where it’s super blow-dried. It’s not those beach waves, it’s more of a tousled look, with those long layers," he says. Colton recommends using Schwarzkopf Osis Grip Style Super Hold Mousse on wet hair and rough dry to add texture to it. "Scrunch it in your hair, just to create a bend. Nothing too curly," he says. Once hair is dry, "Scrunch a little bit of
hair oil into the hair and give some wave to it, and that way it’s not crunchy feeling, it just
has a little bit of movement."
