These Are the Coolest Hair Trends to Try This Fall

The coolest trends of the season: unlocked.

The fall hair trends we’ve already seen crop up have been setting the tone for a season full of laid-back, easy-to-wear styles that won’t unnecessarily complicate your morning routine. We’re talking classic waves, slept-in texture and a ponytail you can create in under five minutes. And all we can think about is everything we can do with the time previously dedicated to a more complicated hairstyling routine. Sip on a second cup of coffee, master a killer contour or perhaps treat ourselves to elaborate breakfasts previously reserved for Sunday mornings. All before we leave for the office.

This collection of fall hair trends will have you looking trendy and feeling comfortable and that’s the best of both worlds, if you ask us!

The Coolest Hair Trends for Fall

1. The Movie Star Crop

You’ve seen the memes that compare the expectations versus reality most of us have experienced when trying out a new hairstyle. The actress looks smooth and polished in the red carpet shot on the left while the image on the right portrays some nightmare hairstyle that resembles the victim of electric shock…and it’s far more relatable. Achieve the movie start cropped style of your dreams by setting your style with a hairspray that’s built to make your style last. TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4 will give your new cropped cut that polished finish that you’re looking for and will keep you looking fresh all day.

2. The Brightest Curls

Keep your hair bright despite whatever’s on the forecast for the foreseeable future with a pop of hot pink hair color. Style your hair as you normally would and don’t worry about your roots growing in—it adds to the charm of this particular trend.

3. A Touch of Texture

Consider your teasing comb your sidekick for the next few months and use this often overlooked tiny tool to add just a touch of texture to your hair. Backcomb to your heart’s content and smooth the top of the style out for a bit of a polished finish. Then, gather your hair into a low ponytail for a messy yet intentional look.

4. Irregular Waves

Give your hot tools a rest and let your hair have a mind of its own as you embrace the air-dry method. Be sure to grab bottles of Nexxus Unbreakable Care Shampoo and Nexxus Care Conditioner to keep your hair happy and hydrated and to encourage your waves to dry in a somewhat uniform fashion.

5. Styled Length
