Trend Alert: Fall Hairstyles

When was the last time someone complimented you on your hairstyle? If it’s been awhile, it’s most likely because you’ve had the same cut and color for forever. It’s safe to have the same style for a long time. Some might say if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. But if you’re still wearing the same hairstyle as the day you got your first job, grab the phone.

Updating your hair not only feels refreshing, it can be liberating — just ask many women who’ve gone from decades of dye to natural gray. And while going for a completely different look — from very long to very short or from brunette to blond — will get you noticedeven small changes like bangs or layers can keep your look current. 

So what’s on the salon radar this fall?

This year, pretty much anything goes, including textured pixie cuts, blunt fringe, rounded bobs, loose lobs, and long layers. Sleek, low ponytails are big for the season — and if you have the hair for it, so are braids and fancy buns.

Waves look amaze on pretty much every woman, and though we never really understood Grace Coddington’s look, fashion mags like the one she helped run tell us brushed-out curls are big on so many levels. Still, you’ll probably want to keep it a little cleaner.

And when it comes to color trends, for 2019 you’re looking at colored tips (any shade goes) and dark, glossy reds. And the gray hair trend is here to stay another year, with vibrant new charcoal shades hitting the at-home color shelves and coming to salons near you. Temporary salon toners are in, too, which some hair experts are calling hair filters, just like layering filters on your photos.

For a temporary change, try a jazzy headband or scarf this fall. You’ll be right on trend. Likewise if you bedazzle your do with jeweled or enameled bobby pins. A crystal barrette is an easy choice — especially on that ponytail.

Get Started

Change can be scary, so buy some magazines and tear out some photos of locks you love and call your stylist for a consultation. For a dramatic cut, you need to have some confidence. For color, a good tip is to play around with temporary shades before committing. And if you’re ready: Embrace the gray!
