As you may have guessed from the title, here are some autumn hair trends to feast your eyes on! So if you fancy a change in hairstyle this autumn, here is some inspiration!

Slicked Back - One style that has been very popular in magazines and such this autumn is to have your hair slicked back. On the catwalk the model's hair always looks full of product and very greasy, which I personally dislike, however you can recreate this look without the 'greasy effect'. To do this, start with slightly damp hair. Using a comb, sweep back your hair from your the top of your head right down to the ends. If you like the 'wet look' secure with a wet-look gel by using the palms of your hands and placing on the sides and front of your head. Leave the ends of your hair to fall into place. If you don't want the wet-look you could use a hairspray instead. Celebrities that are well-known for sporting this look are Kim Kardashian with long hair, Carey Mulligan with her short hair and Emma Watson has been known to sport this look. 

Relaxed Low Pony - Another look you can go for this autumn is the low ponytail. This looks good with medium to long hair lengths. Gather your hair at the back of you head and secure it with a hair band. Leaving a few strands of hair out to frame your face is optional. Also, gathering hair to one side, making it into a side ponytail, would look equally as good. Celebrities such as Adele, Victoria Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow have been seen wearing the trend.

Different Partings - This autumn a deep side parting and a middle parting have both seemed on trend. Why not try them both out and see which suits you best? 

The Mini Beehive - The trend can be seen from the pictures above, where hair is swept into a 1960s styled beehive. Except this beehive is slightly lower, with a center parting at the front. To recreate this look, start with dry hair and comb it through. Create a middle parting. To get the 'pouf' you will need to backcomb. Gather a section of hair from the crown of your head and tease it with the comb. Repeat this until to have a small beehive. If you're unsure of how to create this volume check out this video by Tess Christine on Youtube. Separate the backcombed hair, which should be most of the front of the hair, and pin it with bobby pins at the back of your head. You can leave some front layers out to give the beehive a more relaxed feel. In the pictures, the rest of the hair is pinned up however leaving it down could look nice. Obviously Amy Winehouse was the queen of all beehives and Audrey Hepburn often went for a beehive.

Crimped Hair - Crimping your hair can look really good, especially on shorter hair. If it goes wrong, try putting your hair up in a ponytail or bun, have fun with it!

Fringes - A look that has increased its popularity this year, especially this autumn, is to have a fringe. When getting a fringe make sure it's right for your face shape as there are many different types. You could get a blunt fringe, a feathered fringe or a side fringe - it's best to ask your hairdresser what style would suit you. Nichole Richie is known for her fairly blunt fringe that frames her face perfectly while Emma Stone has a side swept fringe that suits her face shape perfectly. Zooey Deschanel also sports a blunt fringe and is the face of Pantene's Beautiful Lengths Campaign. Millie Mackintosh has recently got a feathered fringe which has caused some controversy.

  1. I am not a huge fan of the crimping, but I do love the slicked back look. It's nice to see a style that keeps hair out of my face!

  2. I really need to change my hairstyle. Thanks for great advices :)
