Ginger hair is positively gorgeous all year round, but we love it just a bit more in fall. Whether you’ve got natural red tones or you’ve dyed your hair to your favorite pumpkin spice shade, we’ve got the styles to show off your color. From simple waves to babelicious blowouts that show off your copper tones, we’re sure you’ll find the hairstyle inspiration you need for your red hair. Read on to see our favorite fall hairstyles for ginger hair color:
6 Fall-Friendly Looks for Ginger Hair
1. Mermaid Waves
Big waves don’t need to be a summer-only hairstyle. We still love the loose, mermaid-wave look during fall! To get this fun wavy style, you’ll need to use heat so be sure to protect your hair by using TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray. Once you’ve protected your hair, find your favorite flat iron. Yep! This look is best done using a flat iron instead of a curling iron. Follow this tutorial to get perfect flat iron waves. For the final touch, twist the top half of each side into a mini-bun to achieve this trendy space bun look.
2. Top Knot
Show off your color and get your hair off your face and neck with a top knot. We love how this simple style is casual enough to wear to the gym but you can also dress it up. For a more done-up top knot add a braid to turn it into a simple ballerina bun. You can even use a top knot as the base of a style to play around with bobby pin designs.
3. Accent Braid
If you’ve got ginger hair in a lob or bob, a subtly braided look can be a surprisingly chic style. Adding an accent braid headband can provide your look with some extra visual interest. To start this style, create a middle part, then pinch one skinny section right on your fringe area. Begin a regular three-strand braid till the ends and secure with a hair tie.
4. Mega Volume
Go bold with your hair with this voluminous style. To make this look more romantic, start off by making loose curls. We suggest a large barrel curling iron and a low temperature to create these large curls. Add all the volume you could want by lightly teasing the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. To keep your style from falling flat and add in some extra shine, use Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray.
5. Tousled Shag
For a modern take on a vintage style, try out the tousled shag. We love the look of these casual wavy bangs. This style will work well on any length of hair but on a collarbone-sweeping cut, it adds lots of extra interest. All you need to do for this look is to spritz in Suave Professionals Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, scrunch your hair and you’re good to go!
6. Bouncy Straight Blowout
This is basically the secret recipe to having a good hair day, every day. To get this sleek style that still has body, you will need a good blow-dryer and a round brush. For a complete step-by-step guide on how to get a salon-style blowout at home, check out our easy blowout tutorial.
