Fall 2013 Hair Trends

Happy Labor Day! I hope you have found some time this weekend to kick back and relax. Yesterday I was out enjoying the last bits of summer as well as my new fall ‘do.

It is bold, edgy yet sophisticated and fresh for fall. My reddish brown ombré locks are replaced by an asymmetrical bob with golden blonde and chocolate brown hues. While going through my metamorphosis I asked Marcia Williams, CEO of Embellish Beauty Concepts and creator of my new look, “what’s in for fall hair?” Here is the lowdown:

Change up your bright summer blond by adding deeper, golden lowlights and undertones. This will create a bold richness for fall.



Darker and richer hues like chestnut and chocolate brown are hot. Touches of gold or red enhance this autumnal look.


Cooler and richer reds are the way to go. Add in some warm brown or golden highlights for a multi-tonal and effect.



For those of you that thought you missed the ombré trend I have good news. Marcia says this trend remains hot for fall with a softer filter. Go for a deeper color at the root with gradual lightening that creates a soft blend.

Now let’s talk about hair styles. How should we look to coif our hair this fall? There are several options.

Low Ponytail
It is simple, effortless but evokes tons of style. Wear it messy, wear it sleek, wear it bouncy; just keep it low and simple.




Side Faux Bang
Thinking about bangs but not yet ready to commit? Try a faux bang. It gives a whole new take on the side part while providing a softer, sophisticated feel.



Big voluminous curls make a beautiful statement this fall. Curls are less defined and brushed out for a softer and fuller look.



Deconstructed Bun
Everyone loved the top knot bun of spring and summer. The bun trend continues but with uniformity and perfection. The bun for fall is messy and convoluted to your hearts desire while maintaining a level of chic that is still office appropriate.




Finally, what if someone wants to go for a completely new look? What are some of the hot cuts for fall?

The Pixie
Beyonce rocked this one for about two minutes but you should consider carrying this look into the spring season. It is a classic style seen from time to time through out the years but modernized.


There are a couple of options here if you are ready to commit. Soft bangs that are left long enough to curl or wispy bangs cut on an angle. Either way the move is drifting from the blunt cut to a softer feel.



The Bob
Another classic (and the inspiration for my fall cut) is the short bob that hits just above the chin and frames the face. This style can be worn with either a soft or slightly edgy effect. For a soft feel, incorporate loose waves and curls. For edgy sophistication, go for a sleek and straighter look.


Before trying anything new you should consult a professional to determine the best color and cut for your skin tone and face shape. That being said, which trend are you looking forward to trying?
