The leaves may have just started turning colors, but we’re already ready for fall. Between the crisp air and cozy nights, there’s no better time than now to unveil a new autumn ‘do. So if you’re looking for some haircut inspiration, make sure you read this article before you break out the scissors. Today we’ll walk you through some of the best haircuts for fall and give you some of our top tips for taking them to the next level.
There’s a reason why undercuts have been a go-to for women looking to experiment with edgier styles. When you get an undercut, the hair along your nape is cut short, while the tops and sides of your hair are kept long. That means you can hide or show off your cut as much as you like! You can also try elevating your undercut with some exciting line art or unexpected pops of color.
Curtain bang shag
Few hairstyles are as chic, edgy, and versatile as the shag. Season after season, the shag has proven that it's here to stay. And it's no wonder why! Because shags have choppy layers, they give you all the benefits of two haircuts in one. Just pull back the longer underlayer, and play around with a number of cute, trendy short ‘dos. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, this stunning look combines the versatility of a shag with the soft glamour of curtain bangs.
If you’re looking for a haircut that’s both sophisticated and undemanding, look no further! A microbob is a shorter, slightly edgier take on a classic bob. Like other bobs, microbobs are an incredibly flattering cut that can give the illusion of fullness. A microbob is exceptionally great for people with naturally thin or straight hair. They also take very little product to style, so you don’t have to worry about your fine strands being weighed down with product.
The wolf cut
Wolf cuts recently skyrocketed into popularity during the summertime, and it doesn’t look like they’re slowing down anytime soon! Wolf cuts are a two-in-one haircut that combines a short, wispy top with a long, layered bottom. They’re halfway between a shag and a mullet and can transform any hair texture into an effortless, cool-girl ‘do. While most people think they’re a longer haircut, wolf cuts look amazing on any length of hair! If you can, try to get your hair professionally cut so your haircut doesn’t end up looking too blunt and choppy.
There’s no better way to get over the end-of-summer blues than with a brand new cut. And as a bonus, it’ll give you a chance to eliminate that pool and summer sun damage and help usher in the new year with a clean slate! Just make sure you head to the salon with a reference photo or two so your stylist knows exactly what you want. And with that, we hope that one of the haircuts we’ve gone over in this article is just what you need to take your locks to the next level!
