Blunt, Shoulder-Length Lobs
Lobs are in like Flynn. This is great news for anyone that got a bob during the summer because they can keep growing it out. For those with fine and medium hair, this cut is perfect because it's cool without being messy. Plus, Lobs give us a little extra length to do a little something if you feel like dressing up.
Layering seems to be taking off this year, whether it’s clothing or hairstyles. Round layers are ideal for women that need body in their hair. These layers can help define the shape of your face, and it doesn't hurt that they can even make hair look more voluminous.
While some people say that mullets are in, we have to disagree. Instead, we're seeing shaggy pixies make a comeback. They're totally cute and can work really well with nearly any face type. Shaggy pixies are also easy to fluff to add a little volume to your 'do.
What trend will define this upcoming year? Undercut pixies. They're designed to add volume on the top, which makes a person look a little more youthful. This cut also flatters any face shape! Shaved sides are a bit of a modern edge to this style, but it's totally optional.
Undercuts are where it's at! Undercut bobs are easy to wear, which is one reason why we love them. This type of cut means that a portion of your hair is short near the base of your scalp while the rest is in the cut of a normal bob. By getting an undercut bob, you'll have less hair to mess with, which could mean sleeping in longer. Talk about a great trade-up.
Thanks to younger generations, the '90s are coming back. Pretty much everything from the decade is trendy again, including bobs from the era. What defines a '90s bob? They're incredibly short – generally no longer than jaw-length. It’s also sleek and parted down the middle, but you can always part it down the side if you want.
Center-Parted Curtain Bangs
This year is all about bangs, bangs, bangs! Blunt has been the go-to lately, but several experts suggest that curtain bangs are best for those with center parts. Center-parted curtain bangs are especially ideal for those with thinner hair that find it difficult to pull off blunt bangs.
Anyone else remember finger waves? They were super popular but then fell out of style. Now, they're back! Finger waves are great for women with short hair. You can create finger waves by using gel and a large-toothed comb. If you have a special occasion coming up, don’t be afraid to wear finger waves!
Low Messy Buns
Drop those high, messy buns. Now it's time for low messy buns. They don't have to be dressy either. You can wear it when you're dressed up or down because they’re so versatile. One reason we like messy buns over the classic bun is because it doesn't have to be perfect. In fact, the messier, the better!
The shag haircut has been a major faux pas, but the modern shag? That's something people are getting on board with. The new look is all about layers, volume, and most of all, bangs. Bangs are coming back pretty strong this year.
'60s Flipped Ends
We're not talking about the Farah Flip, although we do dig that style. This one takes the ‘60s flip and transforms it into something subtle. The subtlety gives your hair some flair that accentuates your face in the best ways.
Subtle Fall Brown Balayage
Not everyone is into colors, and we get that. This one is for you guys. All subtle fall brown balayage entails is brown hair with subtle brown highlights. We love going a few shades lighter and adding a few caramel pieces in the mix. You won’t regret this choice.
Afros are back in style! From celebs walking the red carpet to people heading to the store, you'll probably see a ton of people sporting their natural hair. Make sure to keep your 'fro moisturized and use a wide-toothed comb, as a small one can cause breakage.
Angular bobs are kinda like regular bobs but are longer in the front and shorter in than the back. This style was all over the runway, but that’s not why we love it. Angular bobs work great to keep your hair out of the way while also providing a bit of length to frame your face.
We're beyond psyched to see this one come back. It's a great way to pull your hair back without damaging any of your lovely locks. That being said, some barrettes can still damage your hair if they're not made properly. Make sure to check your hair after using a new accessory for split ends and breakage.
Wispy Baby Bangs
Baby bangs can be super hit or miss depending on face shape. We’re not saying you should get super short bang because it's truly difficult to get some that look good. Instead, we suggest getting longer baby bangs because they give you the look while still providing a bit of space for your bangs to grow out.
Textured, Graduated Bob
When is texture out? Textured bobs are especially in this year because they give your hair tons of volume whether you have thick locks or thin layers. We also suggest giving it a little curl. By doing so, you can give your hair a little bit of poof. That body makes your hair look even thicker without too much effort.
This is a style we've been seeing all over the streets -- a braided bun. The intricate style looks absolutely beautiful, and it's also great for your hair. Using beads and other accessories can also help jazz things up.
We have to say something! No more tight pulled-back hair. All that does is damage your hair, but that doesn’t mean you have to nix braids. Braids are still on the table as long as you go with a low, loose braid. These braids are beautiful and elegant. No, we’re not talking about a French braid. Just a simple one to bring beauty to any look.
Elongated layers are really great for anyone. Whether your hair is straight or curly, you'll have a jaw-dropping look that'll have people staring in envy. If you have thin, fine hair, you can do a little teasing to the crown to get a little va-va-voom.
The banana bun is everyone's new favorite hairstyle. It's easy and it looks super chic in a matter of seconds. Some are calling it a "loose chignon" but we like to think of it as a low bun with a bit of pizzaz.
Visible Ombre Roots
We adore Ombré roots, which is why we’re happy to say they’re “in” this year. Visible Ombré roots are the type of color that prevents you from going to the hairstylist every month to redo your roots. You can let it grow out naturally! Talk about saving money.
This is another hairstyle that's become super popular. Celebs especially love to wear this 'do because it looks glamorous, but it's easy to do. Personally, we love how this one gives you all sorts of volume.
We all have to stop pulling our hair back for a super tight pony! Split ends and breakage are never in, and doing this can potentially damage the follicle, which results in thin hair. Instead, try a low pony. You can style it up by wrapping a bit of hair around the band to hide the hair tie for an extra special look.
Double Dutch Braids
Out with French braids and in with the Dutch! This style is by no means easy, but once it's done, it looks amazing. It also looks great in a single braid if you're not feeling like doubling it up.
Side Swept Bangs
We adore side-swept bangs two reasons that will make it the haircut of the season. First, they have a balancing effect on your face. They will draw attention toward your eyes, giving someone something to focus on. Second, growing them out is a lot less annoying than blunt bangs.
Autumn is when we see all the reds! Usually, people go for burgundy reds, but this time? All natural. The "Genetic Ginger" is becoming super popular, and it's obvious why. The color is beautiful, but it's a dramatic change for some.
Sleek and Straight
People with straight hair will shout from the rooftops with joy. Their style is in! Let it dry and strut your stuff. For those of us that don’t have straight hair, we can straighten our lovely locks using a straightener or blow-drying. Of course, the amount of heat necessary depends on how curly your natural hair is.
Straightener curls may not seem easy, but when you get the hang of it, it's second nature. Even better, there's less stuff in your cabinets! Just wait until the straighter gets hot, section off a piece of hair, clamp the straightener down, and twist away. Then, bring the straightener down and away.
Air-Dried with Natural Waves
Time to get rid of those heating tools, or at least put them away. Stylists say there's no need to blast your hair with unnecessary heat because air-dried is in, especially if you have natural waves. Embrace your hair whether it’s frizzy, straight, wavy, or curly!
Blunt bangs aren't easy for everyone to pull off, but that doesn't mean they aren't in. Few styles have as much gravitas as blunt bangs. It brings out the eyes and makes for a little cherry on the top of your sundae hairstyle. Blunt bangs also go with everything from a Lob to long curls.
Layered Pixie Cut
Layered pixies are in, and we can see why. They leave a little length up top to style while still being cool and easy. Some women choose to mousse their hair into an upward fashion, while others like to put a little braid in their hair. We also find that wearing it to the side like side-swept bangs looks great too. It’s all up to you!
Deep Side Part
We want to talk about the deep side part. What's so great about this style is that it can create a new shape for your hair without any real change. It can be challenging to train your hair to stay, but it will create a thickening effect for the portion that’s flipped over. This can be especially ideal for anyone that has thinner hair.
We're digging the single braid. It can be paired with any other hairstyle on this list or just worn by itself. You can also choose whether it's a thick braid or a thin, single strand that hangs down.
Before we get started. Braid crowns are not easy, but they are popular. They've been showing up a lot more than usual during autumn, so it could be worth practicing. If you want to achieve this style, all we can say is don't give up! It’s just like learning to braid for the first time. Eventually, you’ll get it.
Sometimes we just don't have time to curl all of our hair. If you have longer hair, we get it. Instead of curling the whole thing, go for the very ends. It still shows an effort and can honestly look better than full-on curls. It's a little casual, a little classy, but a lot of va-va-voom.
Extensions are ideal for a couple of reasons. The first is that your hair is short and you want long hair. A few expertly placed pieces, and boom! You have long hair again. Second, extensions can bulk up thinner hair. You can get them in any color and style it like real hair.
