Since Dan and I both got haircuts last week I’ve had hair on the brain. It’s been years since I’ve gotten more than a trim and while it may not seem like much, this was the most dramatic cut I’ve received since college. To say I was bored was an understatement but what’s better than changing your look up for fall? Although pixie cuts are gaining in popularity (thank you Millie Bobbie Brown!), you don’t have to chop off your locks to go dramatic. Try a fresh color. Or just re-style it for a night out. Even just changing up your part can transform your whole look. I’ve been doing a middle part for the first time in forever and I’m digging the ’60s/’70s vibes. Both middle parts and deep side parts saw a lot of action on the runway for fall 2016.
Whatever you choose, I suggest taking a chance. Mercury retrograde is over and it’s now Libra season! Time to embrace beauty (as Libra rules beauty as well as balance) so this will be a great time to figure out what beauty means to you. Do you want to dedicate your time to maintaining a haircut or go low maintenance and focus on other things. Low maintenance beauty is having its moment, so you might as well take advantage of that. Bring on the air-dry styles! But remember, the holiday season will soon be upon us. How would you like to style your hair for parties this year? Or sexy date nights? Fall and winter are the time for dress up, coziness, and romantic vibes. Here are some looks to inspire you this season.
Exclusive: Lily Collins Shows Us How to Get Ultra-Pretty Rosebud Lips | Byrdie – Monochromatic beauty looks are it for fall, so you might as well extend that to your hair and go for a crazy red hue. It’s edgy yet girly. The color works especially well with Lily’s wavy bob haircut.
Jessica Chastain Debuts Short Hair Just In Time For The Warm Weather | Bustle – I’ll admit, this is pretty much my exact haircut. But I love it! Versions of this hairdo have been reigning for the last couple years. Slightly longer in the front with a lot of wave.
Tutorial- The Coolest Braided Updo for Short Hair | Byrdie – A braided, twisted updo for the shorter haired gals. This look is not only easy, it’s fun. Pretty for holiday parties and fall weddings or a night of cocktails with friends.
Cara Delevinge | Marie Claire – For those who love long hair, I suggest going for a super sexy layered look like Cara Delevinge’s cut here. Loose curls are sexy and not as stuffy as perfect ringlets. Plus, they go perfectly with the romantic boho styles for fall/winter 2016.
Inspired by Virginia Woolf, Burberry Goes Gender Fluid for Fall | Elle – Hair accessories are a big trend this fall. Barrettes, hair clips, headbands. Anything and everything from cheeky, like this “Girls” clip above, to über romantic like Rodarte and Marchesa.
Kate Spade FW16 | Harper’s Bazaar – What is more ingénue chic than a low pony and velvet ribbon? This look is so easy and charming. You’ll look pretty and put together as you bundle up for fall and winter.
Marchesa Autumn-Winter 2016 | Harper’s Bazaar – Paired wonderfully with or without a dramatic crown, this Marchesa look is so beautiful. A soft, weaved chignon is a great option for a fancy date night and looks regal with embellished styles.
Tutorial: How to Do a Knotted Ponytail | Byrdie – A more modern evening look. Although you could certainly wear this during daytime to up your ponytail game. It’s easier than a braid and requires no hot tools or products. Easy and seriously cool.
