7 Fabulous Fall Hairstyles!

Stuck in a hair rut? Here are some great hair trends for the fall. From updos to accessories, you can be sure to find a way to try something different!

1. Sleek Ponys

Bar Refalei and Ciara show the difference in a high and low pony, but both a still simple and chic.

2. Tousled Texture

Kate Bosworth is one of my favorites with this look. It’s a totally unfussy, natural looking hairstyle. I also love Kristen Stewart’s look below.

3. Full Bangs

Taylor Swift and Jessica Biel both have full bangs for a modern touch, whether hair is worn up or down.

4. Braided Updos

I LOVE BRAIDS! They add an element of fun to any outfit. Chloe Moretz playfull braids give a youthful flair to her bun and Sienna Miller went for the classic milkmaid. You can always try some plaiting on the sides for a sleeker style.

5. Colorful Hair

Lauren Conrad tried out pink  for quick “notice-me” tips, while the queen of color, Katy Perry, rocks a short blue bob. The colors of this season are rich blues and purples 🙂

6. Low Buns

Take your topknot down a notch…Jessica Alba wears a sophisticated and polished version, while Zoe Saldana’s is a more undone way. Remember it doesn’t have to be perfect.

7. Accessorized Dos

I love a great accessory, for dressed up for your, or helping it out on a lazy day! Emma Stone adds some romance to her hair with this gorgeous gold, wreath like headband. Emily Blunt (below) creates a dramatic scene in her hair with her dark feathered piece.
