Asking yourself how you should do your hair is like trying to decide what to pick up for lunch at work. Even though you’ve got options, you always end up sticking with one style and eating that same sandwich. If the start of fall has you feeling ready to branch out and try something new, we can help you out in the hairstyle department — someone else is going to have to usher you out of that turkey and swiss habit, though.
We’ve studied the recent red carpet looks at length to find the five hairstyle trends that are going to be big for fall. Yes, all of these celeb styles may have been created by glam teams, but they’re surprisingly easy to recreate at home.
From piling on hair accessories to low braids, the following five hairstyles are how you should wear your hair this fall.
Messy Top Knot
Yes, your laziness is one of this season’s biggest hair trends. While a tight top knot is always going to be around, a messy bun similar to the one you often wear while you’re laying in bed binge-watching TV shows is a cool and simple alternative. Wear the bun on top of your head like Hailey Baldwin, loose like Kendall Jenner, or channel your mid-’00s prom hairstyle by leaving two face-framing tendrils out like Jasmine Sanders.
Whichever look you choose, spritz your hair with some dry shampoo like L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Fresh Dust Dry Shampoo ($26; ulta.com) first to soak up any excess oil and add grip that will help keep your top knot from falling out.
