While it still feels like summer –and it will for some time– this is the perfect time to start transitioning your look for fall and winter styles. The biggest change you’ll see is most obviously in the weather and the way in which it affects your hair so keeping an eye on hair care is key. Keep reading for our favorite ways to upgrade your style this season and fight against the elements with ease.
Play Up The Low Pony
The low pony has bounced in and out of popularity since 2015 when we first saw its popularity rise when Giannandrea created the “back knot” for Nicholas K Spring/Summer 2016 runway. This low maintenance look won the hearts of clients and stylists everywhere. From getting a back to school (or work) grind, to finding easy ways to enhance your everyday style in a heartbeat. To get the look, start with freshly styled or even second-day hair. Smooth your style with a paddle brush for an undone feel. Then, use the same paddle brush to pull hair back into a low pony. Then twist into a slight knot or twist, letting the ends stick out for a “messy” effect.
Loose Braids For The Win
While we all love the look of perfectly taught braids, sometimes a softer version for the fall season is just what stylists and clients are looking for! This is a great style to accompany second-day curls without having to apply heat again. Instead of restyling, use a dry shampoo or texturizing spray to create volume and separation, create a loose braid (of your choosing), tie with an elastic and hide the elastic with a scarf! To create a more undone feel, use a smoothing brush or fingers to “pancake” the braid.
Hair Accessories Are Still A Thing
90s inspired hair accessories made a big impact on styles this season – from ponytails to waves and elegant upstyles. The great thing about accessories is that they can be tailored to your exact need when you need them most. Woke up with a weird kink in your hair? Don’t add extra heat; instead, hide it with a barrette! Want to upgrade your look this season, think about layering multiple clips and varying styles for a multidimensional finish.
