Fall is an excellent time to make a change, whether you want something modest that will be easy to maintain or something spectacular because why not? Here are a handful of our favourite hairstyle trends. If you’re ready to go shorter, try a classic ’70s shag haircut or an Insta-favourite French bob. Whatever you’re looking for, we spoke with the pros and compiled a list of the coolest autumn hairstyles for every length and hair type. Read on for the top autumn hair trends, and maybe take a risk or two.
1 The ’70s Flip
On TikTok, 1970s Farah Fawcett hair is reigning supreme as the season's trendiest look. To achieve it, want curtain bangs that are long enough to tuck behind your ears and lengthy layers throughout. Blow-dry your hair with a round brush, then add volume with Velcro rollers or hot rollers.
2 The Side-Part Trend
Side portions are making a comeback. Middle parts will not be the MVP of hair parts this autumn, but is that really such a terrible thing?
3 Hair Bows
Big bows, itty-bitty bows, beautiful bows, and DIY bows—all types of hair bows are popular this autumn. To balance out the sweetness, choose a bow with a matte, dark hue and a coarser texture, and match it with your compulsory fall leather jacket.
4 Modern Diana
You're not alone if you're considering a Diana-inspired haircut. It's a modern appearance for 2021 that screams confidence and flair. The haircut is a combination of a very short layered bob leaning toward a pixie.
5 Loose, Side-Swept Hair
Locs have never gone out of vogue. Why not try some low-commitment extensions like knotless Lit Locs or hand-crocheted Boho Locs this fall? Regardless of whether you're working with locks, braids, curls, or waves, soft and loose styles will be popular for fall—the simpler, the better.
6 Mullet Hair
Don't worry, the fall's newest choppy hair style isn't quite like the mullets you're picturing. Consider them a shaggy-bob-pixie-cut hybrid that seems contemporary and edgy at the same time, due to all the piece-y layers.
7 French Bob
The French bob is undoubtedly the trendiest haircut of the season. A French bob is generally shorter than the chin-length bob we've been seeing a lot of lately, It has a wedge aspect to it and is really elegant and stylish. The cut looks great on all hair types, but Brown like it with air-dried waves.
8 Baby Braids
The two-strand tendrils of the '90s aren't going anywhere; they're simply getting a braided makeover. To replicate the look, braid a little portion of hair on either side of your part, leaving the rest of your hair down or pulled back.
9 White Highlights
If your hair hasn't already gone a shade of white from tension, frame your face with two delicate, blended, bleach-blonde, almost-white highlights.
10 The ’90s Crop Bob
This season, the coolest place to get hair inspiration is in the past, as seen by this sharp haircut inspired by the '90s. The blunt edges and super-short length provide a stylish edge to a traditional bob that will look great with a pair of Doc Martens.
