Before we deep dive into hairstyle recommendations, we’ve got some fall hair care tips to start with:
Hydrate: People often use back to school as a reset button even though it’s not officially the start of a new calendar year yet. If you’re recommitting to self-care, we’d recommend assessing the status of your hair care products. If you haven’t made a deep conditioning mask a regular part of your regimen, now would be a great time to start before the wintery weather begins. Our Mane Goals Deep Repair Mask makes a huge difference in the shine, health, and moisture of your hair, so it’s worth rotating in a few times a week.
Protect: If you aren’t using a heat protecting spray every time you use heat styling tools, make sure to incorporate it into your styling routine. Our Watch Me Werk Thermal Heat Protectant controls frizz and protects your strands from heat exposure, so there won’t be as much wear and tear from regular styling.
Now, onto some cute ‘dos:
Calling all Blair Waldorf fans, the preppy, somewhat puffed up headband is back! The headband can be rocked on any hair texture, but if you want smooth with some statement glam curls, our Magic Curling Wand with a 25mm barrel offers maximum hold and the perfect wave.
The braid that’s hidden within the hair has been popping up on celebs and fashion influencers. It doesn’t require a lot of effort, and the thickness of the braid is your call. If you’re adding some peek-a-boo braids to hair that’s previously been blown out or curled, mask any greasiness with a dry shampoo before braiding. The NuMe Dirty to Flirty Dry Shampoo Aerosol absorbs oil and adds volume.
High Textured Ponytail
High and full of curls spirling around your head is the name of the game when it comes to ponies this fall. Keep hair smooth and sleek at the base, secure tightly then create volume in the ponytail with curls. If you want plenty of options for the type of wave or curl, the NuMe Octowand set (eight curling wands in one!) is an easy way to have your pick up barrels for every occasion.
Deep Side Part
While center parts seemed to be trending for a while, the deep side part (especially paired with a bob or lob haircut) is popping up lately. There can be an art to blow-drying and styling the deep side part—check out this tutorial from Byrdie to see a play by play. We’d recommend having a teasing comb and a product like our Hair-Fie Ready Finishing and Shine Hairspray on hand.
Top Knot with a Scrunchie
Adorn your fall-inspired top knot with this year’s biggest comeback accessory: the long lost scrunchie. Fantastic for dirty hair days and I-really-need-a-haircut-but-until-I-can-make-that-happen days, we love some good scrunchie over elastic coverage (if the scrunchie itself is not quite enough holding power for your hair). Freshen up locks before bunning with our Fresh N’ Fab Dry Shampoo Aerosol.
