Top Hairstyles and Colors for Fall 2018: Accessories, Colors, & More

Fall is fast approaching, heralded by the arrival of pumpkin spice everything and that certain special feeling in the air. It’s time to start thinking about what your new cooler-weather hair style will be. A change of color? New accessories? A new cut?

Check out this list of trending ‘dos as you prepare to leave beach-blonde behind in favor of sleek locks, rich colors, and no-fuss styles.

Straight Down the Middle

A razor-straight center part is far from ho-hum. It’s a simple way to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any style, as we’ve seen on the red carpet several times, and for several years to come. Timeless and classic, use a fine comb in order to get it ultra-straight.

Sleek Ponytail

Who doesn’t love a quick, easy way to look put-together? Smooth down the top half of your hair with a spray, gel, or wax, and tie the rest into a low ponytail and your fabulous self is out the door in a matter of minutes.

Headbands and Scarves

Nothing says “fall” like a scarf. Use your favorite, or a headband, to add a pop of color and style to your locks. They work equally great to keep your hair up or as a down-and-flowing accessory. What’s not to love?

Bobby Pin It Up

Classic bobby pins, colored, or with bits of flair are for more than just keeping your hair out of your face. Use them as an easy way to add a flash of old school elegance or a pretty, subtle accessory like the ones that have small pearls or crystals attached to the end.

Top Knot

Super easy and laid-back, top knots exude the very essence of fall, especially when paired with a cozy oversized sweater, a warm pumpkin spice latte, and your favorite book.

Banana Buns

It looks like banana buns are here to stay! And why not? They’re elegant, so easy to do (just twist and pin it up!), and are sure to complement your sophisticated fall wardrobe.

Lobs: The Fall Edition

Transition your summer bob into a more fall-friendly style with long, face-framing layers. Looking to be even more on point? Add in some fringey curtain bangs to round out the look.

Pixie Cuts, Plus Volume

Too in love with your pixie cut to change it up for fall? Or perhaps looking to make that big move? Be fall-ready with tons of volume and texture thanks to a volumizing mousse.

Warm Toffee

No, we’re not talking about a rich, cool-weather dessert. Liven up dark locks with toffee-colored highlights that add the perfect warmth and complement to your favorite fall outfit.

Hot Chocolate

You know the rich, delicious color of a cup of really good hot chocolate? Give your hair a break from bleach damage and go dark. Nothing goes with the season more than those deep tones, just be sure to mix in some warm highlights that will keep the color from being flat.

Cold Brew

Smooth, delectable, life-giving cold brew. In your hair? Well, sort of. The idea is that your hair color mirrors the different shades of gold, caramel, and rich brown that result when a splash of cream swirls into your coffee.

Icy Gray

Cool gray ends on black hair usher in dropping temperatures and are an edgy-yet-soft way to incorporate the gray-hair trend into your style.

Ash Blonde

Fall tends to favor rich tones, but a dusty ash blonde can be just the refreshing change that you’ve been looking for, especially if you have a cool skin tone. Swap golden, sun-kissed hues for cooler tones that lend an edgy, understated air to your look.

Copper Tone

The danger with copper colors is that it’s easy for them to look brassy. Like, I-bleached-my-hair-and-now-it’s-orange brassy. But done right, the color can be stunning. Opt for a rich golden hue that is just barely kissed with red or strawberry blonde tones for a fall hue that’s full of depth.

Deep Auburn

The quintessential fall color, a rich, deep auburn is like throwing your arms wide and giving fall a big hug. Perfect for fairer skin tones, make this color shine by weaving in a few subtle, eye-catching highlights.

Shadow Roots

Grow out your light summer color without any harsh lines. Roots take on a darker tone than the rest of your hair, so that any growth smoothly transitions from natural to dyed.

Summer, You’ve Been Great…

Though some of us live for lazy, hot days at the beach or breaking out that cute new sundress, there’s something incredibly comforting about cooler temperatures, a crispness in the air, and the wonderful, warm colors of fall.

Let your hair style and color reflect that new mood with a fall update that’ll have you reaching for that pumpkin spice latte.
