Fall is a great time to sport the polished ponytail; it is a show stopper. Say bye to the messy pulled back ponytail and get ready for smooth and sleek. Placement of the ponytail is totally up to your discretion. The trick is to use a flat iron to create sleek hair and a leave in styling serum to prevent frizz and to add shine. Pair you ponytial with a part for a winning look.Either pulled back or let loose to flow. Hair that has a part is beautiful. Try using deep side parts and parts that are purposefully centered down the middle of the head.
Another variant you can try is the low volume textured bed head look. We are not talking about get out of bed and run out the door kind of bed head. We are talking about created texture. To create this look use a texturizer or a sea salt spray on your hair while it's wet. Create a loose bun and pin to your head. Let dry or use a diffuser to dry. After it's dry just let your hair down and run your fingers through it to separate. Dab some pomade on the ends to keep them separated and your ready.
The fall season is about having creative fun with your hair, so what is next?
Think about the Brigitte Bardot bouffant and you know what to look for. The vintage bouffant has made its return time and time again. It's timeless. Add statement hair pieces like vintage hair clips and you will look like you just stepped off the runway.
This fall season try taking braided hair to a new level. Multiple braids that flow down the back or that coil in every direction against the head is chic. Pair the braids up with the ponytail, twist the hair and add in a braided headband or grab a retro hair comb to top off any look.
Hair color that is darker with warmer hues make a statement. If your blonde think beige or icy blonde. Brunettes can go for espresso or a dark chocolate. Copper reds and deep burgundy are great colors for red heads in the fall. If you love black then try a dark blue black.
The fall season is about breaking out of your shell. Experiment a little and definitely have a bit of fun.
