Fall’s coolest new haircuts
They say that life starts all over when it gets crisp in the fall. And for good reason. After a vibrant summer season, you’re likely to crave an all-new, cozier feel. And nothing sets the stage for a major transformation like a fresh cut. If you’re looking for something new to finish out the year, check out these five trending autumn hairstyles.
The pixie cut has made a comeback, but with a twist. The 2021 pixie cut is sleek and borrowed from the boys. It’s cropped close to the head, but you can customize it to suit your style and face shape. Accessorize this short, bold haircut with a chunky earring or a headband to really stand out.
2. Blunt bangs
If you already enjoy sporting longer hair, shoulder-length hair or a bob, change things up with the addition of blunt bangs. A clean line of silky strands cut just below the brow is a strong upgrade from more relaxed curtain bangs as you enter into cooler months.
3. Short + textured
Natural hair is currying favor for many after months spent without salon appointments. Giving our natural texture the chance to breathe and do its thing uninhibited has many craving to continue. Choose a short cut that allows your curls and coils some bounce.
4. Mullet shag
Miley definitely brought this look back into the mainstream. While it follows the classic mullet form of short in the front, long in the back, today’s version blends the whispier stylings of a shag for a softer take on one of the year’s edgiest cuts.
The buzzcut has made a comeback this fall, but it’s not for faint of heart. If you want to play up your rock n’ roll persona, then consider taking the plunge. Best of all, the buzzcut suits virtually every face type. You should make sure the hairdresser follows your head shape and the length is uniform all around. If you really want to look like a punk rocker, then dye your buzzcut platinum blonde and pair it with bold lipstick.
An autumn look to fall for
The changing leaves and cooler weather create new demands for your ensembles and look. The entirely different color palette of the season means bringing in hues that have sat in the closet through spring and summer. Making the change with style is easy, as long as you have the right inspiration. And once you’ve gotten it, an awesome autumn will be yours!
