Five Fall Hairstyles to Give You a Fresh Look for the New Season

We know, we know, fall doesn’t technically begin until later this month. But, September is here, Labor Day weekend has passed and Pumpkin Spiced Lattes are already back and it sure feels like autumn. So, whether the season has officially changed or not, we’re celebrating with a collection of fall hairstyles that will keep you looking and feeling fantastic well into winter. 

Center Part

Our first fall hairstyle is perfect for women with medium-to-longer hair, who are looking for a simple yet sophisticated look. It can be an intimidating look to try, but this look can work for anyone when it’s done right. 

How to get it: 

Getting the perfect center part look depends a lot on your hair type and face shape. For example, if you have fine hair, you’ll want to go for a sleeker look that isn’t too flat. In order to liven up the style, try teasing your roots and using a little texture spray to give your hair a little lift. Then, finish off the look by using a paddle brush to push the hair out a bit.

The Messy Bun

If the messy bun is good enough for the Duchess of Sussex to rock at royal events, then we say it’s totally acceptable for work or for lounging around on a lazy Sunday morning. The messy bun is also simple to pull off and is perfect for a lot of different hair lengths and textures. And, maybe the best thing about this style, it looks way better with second (or third) day hair. 

How to get it: 

As we just eluded to, the best way to nail the messy bun look is go a couple of days in between washing your hair. Once your hair is in the right condition, just follow these three simple steps:
Step 1: Flip your head upside down and pull your hair into a loose ponytail.
Step 2: Twist your hair and bring it around the base of your ponytail to create a bun. Then, continue to wrap your hair below the bun until you get towards the end of the tail. 
Step 3: Secure it with a hair elastic and bobby pins and you’re good to go!

Bob Hairstyles

The bob is one of the hottest and most versatile hairstyle trends around right now. Since you can go with a short-choppy bob all the way to a long-layered bob, it works for a variety of hair lengths. 

How to get it:

With so many assorted styles of bobs, there are a lot of ways to perfect this look. The first step is head to your nearby Fantastic Sams to get your hair cut to the length you want for the bob style you’re looking for. 
Depending on the bob you go with, it can be effortless to polish the look. For example, if you’re looking for soft waves like the image above, just comb out your hair the shape you’re looking for and lock it down with some finishing spray

Big Curls

Voluminous curls are a bold and beautiful look for longer, thicker hairstyles. The look works best for hair that’s naturally curly. But, if your hair is naturally straight, there are ways to get this look too.

How to get it:

If you have longer hair, you can use heat or rollers, but it can be a tough style to perfect and the process varies depending on your hairstyle. If you’re unsure, you can always ask your Fantastic Sams stylist for advice. 

Clipped-Back Curls

Want curls but don’t quite have long enough hair to pull off the last style? Try out clipped-back curls – the look is perfect for shoulder-length and longer hair. 

How to get it:

There are two main steps to perfecting the clipped-back curl. First, get the curls by wrapping a two-inch section of hair around a 1.5-inch curling iron and gently rake the hair using your fingers. Next, clip a few of the curls back to give the style a more modern look. Start by parting your hair to the side, then clipping back a section of curls with bobby pins.
