5 Fall Hair Trends to Try

5 Fall Hair Trends to Try

We’ve rounded up five fashionable styles for fall. Which one will you try?

Trends come and go, but many of the trends this fall season are insanely wearable. We’ve rounded up five for fall. Which one will you try?

1. Messy Updos
Sure, the chic ballerina topknot has been a favourite for a while, but the trend for this fall is a messier version. Bonus for us, ladies, as it takes even less time to style! Here's the low down on getting the messy updo.

Gather all off your hair at the crown of your head. (It helps to flip over.) Wrap an elastic around the base of the ponytail one time, pulling the hair all the way through. As you wrap the elastic for the second time, only pull the ponytail halfway through. Move the ends around the base of the ponytail to create a loose, messy look. Voilà! Took about two minutes, right?

2. Small, Intricate Braids
French and fishtail braids are still popular, but this season calls for delicate braids that frame the face. Gather a 2.5-centimetre (1-inch) section of hair at the temple and simply braid to the end. Tuck behind the ear with a bobby pin.

3. The Low Ponytail
This season's modern ponytail is gathered at the very base of the neck, thus looking smooth, sophisticated and most of all, appearing longer than its higher-placed counterpart.

Be sure to use a boar bristle brush to truly smooth your mane beforehand.

4. Barely There Waves
Call them "barely there" or "rock and roll" waves — this hairstyle involves creating just enough bend in the hair to look slightly dishevelled. To get the look, apply volumizing mousse to damp hair and air dry with your fingers, scrunching the ends. Twist into a topknot on the crown of your head, wait for a few minutes and then release the bun. Add a little hair powder or dry shampoo for a true rock and roll effect.

5. Hair Scarves
Scarves are the best accessories for blah hair days. Roll a scarf into a 2.5 centimetre (1-inch) diameter, place at the top of your head, and tie behind the ears for a simple, pretty look. Searching for something bolder? Pull your hair into an updo, drape the scarf underneath your hair, pull the ends to the top of your head, tie into a knot, and either leave the ends free or tuck them under the scarf. This look is a fun nod to the ’50s and ’60s and absolutely perfect for a fall weekend!
