15 Gorgeous Hair Updates to Consider Trying This Fall
Hair Update Idea: Include a Few Subtle Braids
Drew Barrymore’s peekaboo plaits are a mature version of a ’60s flower child’s braids. They lend a feminine touch to any type of hairstyle.
Hair Update Idea: Try Blunt Bangs
The bang heard round the world—Ms. Jessica Biel’s. Whether you clip them in or have them professionally cut, you’ll be sure to make as big a splash as she did.
Hair Update Idea: Cut Your Beachy Waves Into a Layered Bob (a.k.a. the Lob)
If you’ve had long, wavy locks all summer, transition to fall by cutting them into a lob à la Zoë Saldana. It works on just about everyone and will always be in style.
Hair Update Idea: Dye the Top of Your Hair to Create an Ombré Effect
Rachel Bilson is the queen of ombré hair. While you normally get the look by dyeing the ends of your hair, try coloring your crown a darker color than your summer-sun-kissed locks instead.
Hair Update Idea: Go for Veronica Lake Retro Waves
So sexy, Jessica Alba! Sweeping your hair to one side of your head gives you an old-Hollywood allure that’s equal parts sultry and classic.
Hair Update Idea: Sweep It Up Into a Sleek Ponytail
Sometimes you just want your hair out of your face, no? Mandy Moore’s slick and sophisticated ponytail is a great option. Bonus points for hiding that elastic!
Hair Update Idea: Fake a Bob
If you’d rather test-drive a bob than fully commit, make like Jennifer Hudson and roll your locks under. Secure them with bobby pins and you’re all set.
Hair Update Idea: Pin Back Two Loose Braids in Your Half-Up Ponytail
Not quite ready to give up the summer look? Copy Nina Dobrev and include two loose braids in a half-ponytail for a look that’s both polished and ethereal.
Hair Update Idea: Switch Up Your Part
If you’re anything like Mila Kunis (who generally parts her hair down the middle), try mixing things up! A small switch can make a big difference.
Hair Update Idea: Wear an Eye-Catching Headband
Simple enough, right? Pop on a bejeweled version similar to Jaime King’s for a girly touch.
