September 2, 2020

Quarantine hair, don’t care? No, thanks! Just because you’re spending more time indoors doesn’t mean you have to resort to a messy top-knot or sloppy bedhead. Keep your at-home hair looking fresh this fall and experiment with different cuts, colours and styling techniques that’ll impress your colleagues on your next video call.

From edgy short hairstyles to low-maintenance colour treatments and fashion-forward hair accessories, here are the top six hair trends to try this fall.

The Lob

Ready for a chop but feeling nervous about going too short? The Lob – short for ‘long bob’ – is the perfect in-between length if you want a short hairstyle that can still be pulled back into a ponytail. Ask your stylist to trim your tresses in a uniform length that hits just above your clavicle. This universally flattering hairstyle is suitable for all face shapes and hair textures and is particularly chic when styled with loose waves.

Sun-Kissed Balayage

If you plan to spend less time in the salon this fall, skip high-maintenance blonde highlights and opt for an effortless balayage treatment. This colouring technique looks great on long and short hair and involves hand-painting the hair with graduating colour for a softer, more lived-in look – as if your locks were lightened naturally by the sun. Best of all, balayage requires minimal upkeep and darker roots won’t look harsh as your hair grows over time.

Trendy Hair Accessories

The ’90s are back in a big way when it comes to fall fashion, so now is the perfect time to add some personality to your hairstyle with fun and trendy accessories. Pull your hair back into a low ponytail with an oversized scrunchy, speak your mind with glittering statement barrettes, adorn your mane with a romantic hair ribbon or add colourful butterfly clips throughout your strands for a retro-inspired look.

Buzz Cut

If you want an on-trend hairstyle that doesn’t require a lot of effort or styling products, go super short with a bold buzz cut. A buzz cut is one of the most popular hairstyles for men (and for daring gals) and can be recreated relatively easily at home with a set of high-quality clippers. Get the military recruit look with a traditional close-to-the-skin shave, keep a little length with a burr buzz cut, or try a tapered crew cut that’s short around the sideburns and neckline and slightly longer on top.

Deep Side Part

Switch up your hairstyle without committing to a drastic cut with a deep side part. This easy-to-recreate hairstyle adds a serious level of drama to your mane, no scissors required. Try parting your hair to the right or the left while still wet and then blow-drying with a round paddle brush for added volume. The side part is also a popular hairstyle for men who want a dapper coiffed look with a lot of volume.

Blunt Ends

Hoping to keep it simple this season with a low-key hairstyle that can last through the winter? Avoid face-framing layers and choppy bangs that need regular trimming and request a sophisticated blunt cut instead. Keeping your hair all one length ensures it will grow out evenly over time and makes it simple to style each morning. A razor-sharp blunt cut is also a great way to get rid of split ends to keep your hair looking and feeling healthy, and it’s an ideal hairstyle if you have naturally fine straight hair.
