Fall has arrived in full force and the changing of the seasons also means a change in style. It means switching out your sandals for boots, your tank tops for sweaters and your swimsuits for scarves. And while you’re revamping your closet for cooler weather, you may also be considering switching up your hair to accommodate cooler temps, new color schemes and the ever-cute winter beanie.

And what are the hottest trends for this year’s fall? Effortlessly messy. Read on for the trends we expect to see most and how you can embrace the styles of the season, out and about or at home.


Headband hairstyle

They’re back and they’re trendy! Headbands are part of this year’s autumn look, while also serving as a functional piece to keep those fly-aways out of your eyes. Bonus, it’s a quick way to feel put together, whether working from home or getting together virtually with friends.

Bedhead Waves

Wavy hairstyle

Nothing says effortless like bedhead, right? Messy, loose waves (often created with some sea salt spray) gives that “Oh, look at me, I just got up and look fabulously chic” vibe. Whether or not you actually did just get up before your 8 a.m. video meeting… they’ll never know.

Top Knots

The top knot is a versatile style that seems to always top our style lists. An easy way to pull off a polished look, we love it for it’s low-maintenance work but big-style impact. The best part: the messier the better!


bob hairstyle

Bobs are back! Whether you’re going for an angular look or a long lob, this style is flattering for any hair type or face shape. Got curls? Keep your bob a little longer and embrace them! Got waves? Add in a little sea salt spray or a texturizing hair product. Got stick-straight hair? Part it down the middle and enjoy the blunt, edgy look.

Center Part

The center part is HOT this season! Incredibly flattering for those with oval-shaped faces, this part is easy and fun to style into a smooth ponytail or a messy shag.

70's Bangs

Beautiful on anyone, bangs go great with all hairstyles, from short shags to long layers. In addition to providing a wonderful face-frame, they also grow out nicely and are easy to sweep to the side as they lengthen. This style of bangs pair well with a winter beanie (and keep your forehead toasty warm).
