Fall is the perfect time to try out new hairstyles and accessories.
Cooler weather often means less frizz and less sweating, making this time of year ideal playing around with your hair and getting away from the monotony of boring tresses.
What Are The Hottest Hair Accessories And Styles For Fall?
Sometimes we shy away from certain styles out of fear that they’ll make us appear too childlike.
But even the most kid-ish styles (think: pigtails) can work great for adults when worn right. Here are four ideas for adding some fun style to your look this season.
1. The Ponytail: An Updated Classic
A ponytail is a simple go-to style for many women. It’s easy to throw your hair up, wrap an elastic band around it and head out the door.
This casual style can be turned into an elegant statement when paired with the right accessory — a metallic cuff ponytail holder. The sophisticated cuff masks that unsightly elastic band and adds a bit of class to your look.
2. The Topknot: Not Just for Ballerinas
Topknots (formerly known as buns) are all the rage this year. Men, women, and kids of all ages are sporting this ballerina-inspired look.
The trick to making this style more fashionable and less get-me-a-tutu is to wear it high and dress it up with a bun cuff. Like the cuff ponytail holder mentioned above, this accessory adds elegance to an otherwise simple look.
3. The Corded Pony: A Throwback To The Roman Empire
This specific style brings to mind gladiator sandals, but for your hair. It’s a fun way to make a statement with your low ponytail.
To achieve this unique style, simply pull you hair into a low pony and then wrap a golden wire cord around it from top to bottom, tying it at the end. The cord can be found at most fabric stores.
4. The Laced Braid: A Versatile Option
You may not think that a basic black ribbon could never be a hair accessory (other than to tie around a ponytail in old-school “Grease” fashion). But lacing through a braid brings a whole new level of style to your braided hair.
The great thing about this accessory is that it works with any type of braid, whether you braid just a couple of strands on the side or your head or choose pigtail braids.
No matter which styles and accessories you choose this fall, the important thing is to have fun with your locks. Don’t be afraid to try something new and step out of your comfort zone.
