1. The Edgy Side Part

Take one glance at the image above: Can you name the movie we’re stealing this edgy deep side part inspiration from? We’re giving the look a modern spin by moving away from the jet-black look, and we’re also throwing in longer lengths. Recreate this sci-fi hair look for the fall on long blonde hair, then pair it up with your mini glasses and your shiniest leather pant. Apply a bit of Bed Head by TIGI Up Front Rocking Gel Pomade to the crown of your hair and comb through to create the wet-look appearance with a firm hold. For added shine, complete your look with Bed Head by TIGI Headrush Shine Hairspray.

We have a thing or two for androgynous hairstyles, and this one is ideal for nailing the sci-fi fashion and beauty trend this season. The key to nailing this look is to focus more on texture and less on making your updo look clean and neat. Start off by removing any excess oil with a dry shampoo like TRESemmé Unscented Dry ShampooFinger-comb your hair into a loose, low ponytail and pull out a few pieces to enhance the messy look of your style.
