If you are looking to shake things up with your hair, fall always feels like the best time for a change.

Read on to check out some of our favorite fall hair trends that we think you’ll love, too.
Top 10 Fall Hair Trends For 2016
1. Pumpkin Spice Hair
Our favorite hair trend this fall is pumpkin spice hair. Finally, a hair color based of the one thing that universally feels like fall! From adding subtle ginger highlights, to going full on orange, this fall hair trend can be worn in many different ways to suit you and your coloring. Pro tip: Work with your stylist to find the perfect shade to match your skin tone.
2. Messy Bangs
Overly perfect bangs are out, and messy, wind-swept bangs are in. To get this look you can trim your own bangs, or let the bangs you already have grow out a little bit. For a piecey style, just roughly blow-dry and spritz in a small amount of some sea salt spray.
3. Color Melting
Color melting is a trend that can work on any haircut, hair texture, and in any color you may like. This technique dyes sections slightly larger than your average highlight and blends the color into your natural hair color to achieve the melting effect. Talk to your colorist to see if balayage or ombre hair is right for you.
4. Frizzy Hair
We never thought we would see the day that frizzy hair is a trend we actually like. If you don’t have a naturally frizzy hair texture you can add in some faux frizz by tightly braiding your hair at night and wearing the waves the next day.
5. Blue Hair
If pumpkin spice hair isn’t bold enough for your tastes, go to the opposite end of the color spectrum and try out blue hair. This hair trend can be worn in many different shades so it is flattering on all skin tones. Just remember with heavily dyed hair you’ll need to do a little more maintenance. Use a hair mask, like the Dove Quench Absolute Intense Restoration Mask at least once a week to keep your hair looking healthy.
6. Soft Finger Waves
For an ultra feminine, vintage look, try out some finger waves. To achieve this look you will need a fine tooth comb and a gel, like the Nexxus New York Salon Care Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel. Add the gel to damp hair and comb into a swooping S curve and allow it to dry.
7. Strong Side Part
We’re done with the wishy washy no-part look of this summer. Instead, for fall, use some bobby pins or a comb to get a perfectly straight deep side part. This look adds a touch of edginess to any haircut and adds tons of volume to thin hair.
8. Shaggy Hair
This #throwback haircut was all over the runways and your TV screen this fall. We love how the shag is low-maintenance, versatile and easy-to-style. To increase volume and to keep your ’80s flashback game going strong, use the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Touchable Bounce Mousse on damp hair and air-dry.
9. Dark Ombré
Transition your summer ombré for fall by going a few shades darker. Going a little darker gives a more subtle appearance to an ombré which keeps you from looking like you just stepped off the beach and into your fall sweater.
10. Single-Length Lob
The lob cut will be trendy probably forever. This cut is so flattering on everyone and is super low-maintenance. To keep your hair from feeling stagnant, transition out your layers for a single-length lob. This will automatically add volume and ensure that your blunt cut looks super chic.
