2021 Fall Hair Trends That Are Low Effort but High Impact

Thanks to the newly tempered weather, fall presents a plethora of opportunities to style your hair without worrying about finding yourself in a sweaty situation. On the flip side, the wool hats and static mess of cooler temps are still safely off in the distance. Basically, fall is the hairstyle sweet spot, so why not take advantage? Below are five fall hair trends.

    Gossip Girl headbands

    Maybe it’s because of the reboot, but this fall we’re going to be seeing headbands all around us. While the softer cloth wrap around styles are sporty and cute, this season fall hair is all about chunky statements. Pearl earrings and miniskirts are also welcome.


     Classic middle part  

    Yes, deep side parts and swoopy bangs have a place in our early 2000’s hearts, but there’s nothing like a good ‘ole middle part. Whether you’re going for the natural just got out of bed look, or want to straighten it out for a sleek take on the style, the classic middle part is trending this fall.


    French twist inspired updos

    Less fuss than twisty bridal style, more effort than a messy bun, French twists are the perfect balance of intention and ease. No, the French don’t have a monopoly on elegance, but the way this style instantly transforms a look could make you think otherwise (and have you running to your neighborhood market for a baguette and some flowers.) If you can’t stick the full twist, a well-crafted bun or claw accomplishes the same effect.


    Low ponies

    The low pony has everything you could ever ask for in a fall hair style: hair is kept away from your face, but unlike the high pony, you get to keep your part intact. The result is a super elevated and chic twist on a hairstyle classic.


    Blunt bobs

    It’s time to reclaim the bob cut from Dora the Explorer, Matilda, and the likes. Bob cuts are not just for fictional children! On the contrary, there is something super sophisticated about a bob. It’s a no fuss hairstyle that accentuates your collar bone and jawline. The angular drama that it gives is anything but childish. It’s giving spy. It’s giving mysterious—and isn’t that what fall hair is all about?
