6 Hairstyles To Show Off Ginger Hair This Fall

1. Mermaid Waves

Big waves don’t need to be a summer-only hairstyle. We still love the mermaid waves look during fall! To get this wavy style, you’ll need to use heat so be sure to protect your hair by using some of the TRESemmé Platinum Strength Heat 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.

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 Braided Low Ponytail

If you’ve got hair for days, a low ponytail can be a surprisingly chic style. Adding an accent braid headband can provide you with some extra texture. To start this style, brush your hair backwards. Before securing your hair with a hair tie separate a two-inch section to use for the braid. Then, do a simple three-strand braid and wrap the braid over your head like a headband. This style can get a little loose during the day so be sure to use enough bobby pins and take some with you just in case.

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 some of the Dove Style+Care Strength And 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 collar bone sweeping cut it adds lots of extra interest. All you need to do for this look is to spritz in some of the Suave Professionals Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, scrunch,your hair and you’re good to go!

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 blowdryer 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.
