Top 5 Fall Hair Trends For 2020

It's happening. The air is getting crisper, the leaves darker, and the smell of pumpkin spice seems to linger outside every coffee shop we walk by. And of course, fashion shifts during the fall season, and hair always follows. In contrast to the breezy attitude of summer, fall is brisk and sharp. As we pull ourselves out of summer vacation mode, the styles begin to get more chic and fashion-forward. If you're wondering what hairstyle to go with this fall, don't worry. We've got your back. Check out five styles we are currently watching for fall 2020.

Spontaneous Texture

This past summer, we've collectively felt restricted. With all the rules we've got to follow, there seems to be little room for spontaneity. Hairstyles this fall are calling for a bend to the regular rules of styling. A style to watch this fall is the intentional addition of 'random' textures. A crimp or twist against straight locks is the best way to go about this trend because it provides the most striking contrast. You can break out your curler or crimper and pick pieces within the top layer of your hair. If you use hairspray, do so sparingly so that your hair's condition remains a constant throughout.

 

Fringe Tease

Teased locks have always had their place in fall looks, and that applies to 2020 as well. The only difference is that people are starting to pair them with blown-out bangs. If you've got fringe, you can ace this style. To create the look, you'll want to start by blowing out your entire head of hair. Use root lift spray to add volume to the strands around your scalp. Grab a round brush to style your bangs (as you normally would). Tease the dangling strands and mist lightly with hairspray. You won't need to spray too much as the teasing will help to hold your hair in place.

 

 

Volume

Volume is something we've seen more and more lately; however, it's rarely on trend for fall. In the past, fall trends typically leaned towards styles like blunt bobs and straightened high ponytails. In 2020, those looks fall flat. This year is about embracing vibrant, loud, and epic hairstyles. The bigger, the better. For people who don't have voluminous hair naturally, there are things you can do to add body to those locks of yours. For example, you can blow dry your hair upside down and let gravity do the work for you. You can also use products such as volumizing mousse and root lift spray when styling. The easiest trick? Switch your part. It's the quickest way to bump up your look naturally.

 

Modern Peacock

The 90s have made a gigantic comeback within fashion and beauty. One of the most infamous 90s hairstyles was the peacock. Red carpets were riddled with wispy strands sticking out of buns and headbands. It was excessive, and thankfully the exaggerated peacock has stayed in the 90s. Pieces of the idea have been brought into the modern-day version of the look and paired with face-framing tendrils. Get the flattering new peacock style by first straightening your hair with a styler. Then, use a clip to toss your hair into a casual updo. Leave a tiny portion of your ends out of the clip so they can subtly peek out of the top.

 

 

Creative Color

Billie Eilish's hairstyle this summer included green roots that faded blissfully into darker locks. Her creative use of color has caught on and is expected to be very popular this fall. If you're a hair dye veteran, we'd suggest trying out this unique use of color. However, if you have virgin hair, there are some things you'll want to keep in mind before coloring. If your hair is dark, you will have to bleach it before adding color. With that in mind, it's important to maintain the health of your hair. Using a healing conditioner or leave-in treatment will serve you very well. You will also want to make sure that you always, alwaysuse thermal protectant when styling.
