Autumn is in the air! The leaves are starting to change color, and the days are cooler and shorter. So what better time to make a change to your hair? If you’re looking for some hairstyle inspiration to take your locks to the next level, we have some good news. This article will walk you through a selection of the top 5 hairstyles for fall 2022.
Face framing pieces
It’s official; the early 2000s are back. And what better way to embrace millennial fashion than with face-framing tendrils? Face framing pieces are unique because they act both like hairstyles and accessories. And all you have to do to get the look is pull out two thin pieces of hair so they flawlessly frame your face. And that’s it! This style literally couldn't be any easier. Use the pieces to instantly update any hairstyle: from ponytails and buns to that perfectly undone updo.
Mullets are controversial haircuts that have evolved from their humble beginnings into a bonafide fashion staple. Mullets are known for being business in the front and a party in the back. However, fall 2022’s mullet has a modern twist. The updated mullet is a little more grown out and usually accompanied by a stunning statement color, textured pieces, and letting your natural texture shine. The 2022 mullet can also be taken super shorter in the front, resulting in a ton of interesting contrast.
Get ready to ditch the straightener! One of the biggest hairstyle movements dominating this fall is natural hair. The movement is about embracing your natural kinks, spirals, and coils and letting that gorgeous texture shine. You can wear your natural curls however you like, whether that means an angular afro or long, layered ringlets. Since you’re working with your texture rather than against it, natural curls are surprisingly low maintenance. And don't worry if your hair is bone straight. You can always add fun texture to your locks with rollers, curling irons, and wands.
Now that fall is here, shorter haircuts are officially taking over. And what better way to go short than with a timeless cut like a pixie? The overgrown pixie is a slightly longer, way more casual take on the classic short cut.
Pixie cuts are adorable, low maintenance, and super easy to style. They’re also surprisingly versatile so that you won’t be limited to just one or two basic styles. And did we mention that going short gives you a chance to get rid of those damaged ends once and for all?
This fall, trending hairstyles will focus on embracing your natural texture and riding the fine line between retro and modern styles. While summer hairstyles emphasize an easy, laid-back approach, fall is the perfect time to play around with something a little more daring. Try out that stunning new color you had your eye on, or chop off some of that length! Regardless of which ‘do you choose to rock, we hope that you were able to find exactly what you were looking for.
