1. Chignons and Low Bun Fall Bridesmaid Hairstyles

As we ease into the coziness that comes with autumn, we can loosen up our approach to hairstyles too. Low bun hairstyles like the timeless chignon are more than welcome, whether you’ll be in casual or formal attire. Just keep your tresses loosely tied at the base of your neck.

2. Blunt Long Bob Medium Length Fall Hairstyles

On the other hand, there are some hairstyles that will be just as fashionable this fall as they were during summer 2019. The long bob or lob haircut is definitely among them. If Cardi B has sacrificed inches to rock the cute and sexy lob, you might want to as well.

3. Curtain Bangs Cute Fall Hairstyles

Curtain bangs have been popping, but we guarantee the retro fringe will continue to trend throughout the fall. Playful and practical at the same time, curtain bangs are ideal for the chill and easygoing gal. And as far as types of bangs go, they’re easily a winner on the top-trending podium for fringes.

4. Rich Copper Fall Hair Colors

While not all of us are blessed enough to be natural gingers like Madelaine Petsch, we can certainly do our best to recreate it. Every year, when fall comes around, copper hair comes back in style stronger than ever before. Go for a rich, deep, and intense tone to match the falling leaves around you.

5. Half Up Half Down Autumn Hairstyles

From Ariana to the Hadid sisters and Kim K. herself, half up half down hairstyles are ubiquitous this autumn. A half up ponytail looks exceptionally adorable with shoulder-length locks, but don’t hesitate to sport one if you have longer hair. We love the 90s vibes that come with it.

6. Auburn Fall Color Hairstyles

When Zendaya debuted an auburn look at the 2019 Emmys in September, the internet was more than eager to label it a new fall hairstyles trend. Generally speaking, auburn hair is the perfect match for this season. Now that some of our favorite celebs are rocking it too, it’s clear that auburn is an autumn must, for sure.

7. Braided Pigtails Autumn Hairstyles

Aside from half up ponytails, Bella Hadid has also been cultivating her 90s nostalgia with braided pigtails. When combined with a cool vintage hat, pigtail braids look even sweeter. If you’re ever in a rush but you’re not in the mood to leave your hair down, braid your locks into low pigtails.

8. Oakwood Bronde Fall Hair Colors

In the world of hairstyles, Guy Tang is one of the artists who truly deserve the influencer title. He’s always at the forefront of color trends, which is why we’re sure his creamy Oakwood bronde will stay hot throughout the rainy season.

9. Ash Brown Autumn Hair Colors

Whether you call it ash brown or mushroom brown, the charcoal-tinted coffee color is ideal for fall hairstyles. Celebrities like Lily-Rose Depp and Olivia Palermo prove that it looks just as beautiful as it sounds. From where we stand, it’s one of the loveliest cold tones on the brunette spectrum.

10. Crimped Curly Fall Hairstyles

We never thought we’d have the chance to say this, but… crimped 👏 hair 👏 is 👏 back! While not as rigid as the 90s version, softer crimped locks are expected to be everywhere in the last part of 2019. The easiest way to get them is to braid your hair when it’s damp and unravel it the following morning.

11. Top Knot Autumn Hairstyles

Although many tight and slick hairstyles are now just summer memories, the top knot is not one of them. You can sport one in any situation, from going back to school in style to a fancy event. At the same time, you can loosen your top knot into a casual messy bun to match your fall-ish feelings.

12. Low Ponytail Fall Hairstyles for Long Hair

Here, our beloved Gigi showcases not one – but two huge trends for autumn glam. First off, we have the sassy low ponytail that has taken the place of its high counterpart. After that, we have the witch-like black hat that flatters any hair length, color, or texture.

13. Curly Bangs Fall Crochet Hairstyles

If you’ve ever had any doubt about getting bangs as a curly girl, you can throw all your worries out the window. Curly bangs are a full-fledged trend that won’t be disappearing anytime soon. Whether you have naturally curly hair or crochet braids, now is the time to pair them with a bouncy fringe.

14. Ribbon Fall Hairstyles

Every season comes with its own selection of accessories. If scarves and bandanas were all the rage this summer, ribbons and bold clips are taking over fall. You can also wear numerous ribbon hairstyles throughout winter to support your passion for everything Christmas-related.

15. Vintage Waves Autumn Hairstyles

Finger waves and other vintage hairstyles are making a massive comeback for autumn 2019. Red carpets around the world have been hosting some of the most exquisite soft, side-swept, vintage waves hairstyles, mostly thanks to chic celebs like Sophie Turner.

16. Deep Brick Red Fall Hair Colors

Red hair has always been associated with fall, no matter what specific tone it comes in. One of the must-have warm hues this season is the deep brick red sported by multi-Emmy-winning Natasha Lyonne. We’re totally here for it!

17. Side Braid Fall Hairstyles for Long Hair

If you have waist-length locks like Camila Cabello, you’re going to have an awesome time playing around with side braids. Regardless of your natural hair texture, you can weave your strands into a casual three-strand braid and flip it to the side.

18. Messy Short Fall Hairstyles

Bring on the texture, babes, ‘cause tousled tresses are here to stay! If Hailey Bieber can carelessly sport messy hair on the cover of Vogue Australia, you can definitely wear yours the same any day, anytime, anywhere.

19. Side Tossed Waves Autumn Hairstyles

Still, if you don’t want to go overboard with the messiness, you can pick Ashley Graham as your muse. The barrier-breaking model shows us that naturally wavy hair tossed to the side without a part looks absolutely dreamy. You’ll also be able to flip your hair around without worrying about the hairstyle falling apart.

20. Waves and Bangs Fall Hairstyles

We dare say that 2019 is the year of Lizzo. After beating every chart record you could think of, the new queen on the scene is now serving us look after look. Her latest Billboard shoot shows that long wavy hair looks fabulous with straight blunt bangs.

21. Face Framing Bangs Hairstyles

At the same time, 2019 is also clearly the year of throwbacks. In a series of Instagram posts, Kylie Jenner visually encourages us to embrace the iconic long, face-framing bangs that dominated pop culture in the early 2000s and late 90s. You can wear them with buns, ponytails, and braids alike.

22. Slick Back Autumn Hairstyles

Slicked back hair has always been a red carpet favorite for celebrities far and wide. However, it’s now a top trend for any special occasion you may have in store during the fall season. We recommend investing in a quality styling product so you know your locks will stay slick and in place.

23. Pumpkin Balayage Fall Hairstyles and Colors

What if we took the most iconic seasonal Starbucks drink and transformed it into a hairstyle? A dark to light pumpkin balayage is enough to take anyone’s breath away. If the harmonious color combo caught your attention, we encourage you to work with a professional colorist to get the desired results.

24. Wrap-around Braids Fall Wedding Hairstyles

Make a bold statement with wrap-around braids like Taylor Swift did in her Rolling Stone feature. The hairstyle is perfect for autumn weddings, whether you’re a guest or the bride herself. Alternatively, you can try a stylish crown braid that falls under the same category.

25. Scrunchie Cute Fall Hairstyles

Thank goodness we’re bringing the scrunchie back this year too. The cute accessory we adored as kids is now rightfully a fall 2019 trend. Some of the biggest names in fashion, music, and cinema have been spotted wearing the beloved scrunchie. Will you bring out your inner child with one too?

26. Long Side Bangs Ponytail Hairstyles

Indeed, tight, high, slicked back ponytails aren’t expected to trend as much during autumn as they did in the summer. Nevertheless, there is a preppy schoolgirl variation that has us all excited. Take a section of your hair from one side, pull it over your forehead, and tuck it into the rest of your ponytail.

27. Chestnut Fall Hair Colors

You really can’t get any more natural than with chestnut hair. If you’re the kind of girl that starts carving pumpkins when October 1st comes around, it will be a match made in heaven for you. If your hair is naturally chestnut, skip dyeing it for a good few months from now on.

28. Amber Fall Hairstyles and Colors

In the natural hair community, reddish curls are at an all-time high. Not only do ringlets look wonderful in amber hues but they’re also highly flattering for women with darker skin tones. Janet Jackson is the picture-perfect example of how an amber shade can boost the impact of your entire appearance.

29. Padded Headband New Fall Hairstyles

One particular trend that dominated every Fashion Week around the world in 2019 is the padded headband. Repopularized by Kate Middleton, the chic accessory adds a royal touch to any outfit. You can get yours in velvet or leather, depending on your preferences.

30. Multiple Textures Fall Hairstyles

Why settle for one hair texture when you can have two or even three? In 2019, hairstyles are all about experimentation and pushing the norm. For instance, you can start with a straight base and have your hair flow into curls or waves. With a chocolate or reddish-brown hair color, you’ll be an indisputable autumn goddess.

31. Shadow Roots Autumn Hairstyles

Remember when the shadow roots trend popped up last year and made us all breathe a collective sigh of relief? Well, rest assured that it will continue to save us the embarrassment of missing our touch-up appointments for the rest of the year.

32. Sombre Fall Hairstyles

Even though we love ombre hair, we can’t deny the fact that sombre hair has won our hearts over. Essentially, somber hair is the softer, more blended alternative for the two-block approach that comes with the classic ombre. For autumn, saying that it’s perfect would be an understatement.

33. Modern Shag Fall Haircuts

The 80s came with their fair share of both glam and cringe, but one thing’s certain – the shag haircut was one of the best trends to come out of that decade. Nowadays, we have the modern shag haircut that will work wonders for any girl with an edgy personality.

34. Golden Caramel Fall Hair Colors

We know, we know, it may seem that autumn is all about brunettes and redheads. Have no fear, because there are trendy fall options for women who prefer lighter tones. One approach is the golden caramel shade you can admire on Queen Latifah. Stunning, right?

35. Middle Part Tight Updo Hairstyles

Another turn that tight ponytails have taken this fall is with a middle part. Instead of slicking your hair all the way back, part it down the middle and take a side to side approach. The hairstyle is not only classy but also useful if you want to highlight the jewelry you’re wearing.

36. Bob Short Fall Hairstyles

Happily enough, short bob hairstyles are projected to remain among the autumn hair must-haves. If Nicki Minaj traded in her waist-length wigs for this short vintage bob, you can imagine how big of a trend it still is. If you want to accentuate your jawline and shine a spotlight on your facial features, it’s the way to go!

37. Wet Hair

Ever since Kim Kardashian made headlines with her Met Gala look, it’s no secret that wet hair has taken over the game. In addition to straight slicked back hair, the wet approach works beautifully on both wavy and curly hair. Don’t second-guess its impact if you have a formal event to attend.

38. Wispy Updo Easy Hairstyles for Fall

It seems that everything RiRi touches turns to gold. She has undoubtedly left her mark on music, makeup, fashion, and, of course, hairstyles. One of her latest appearances that serves as inspiration is her Vogue Hong Kong cover, where she wore a graceful updo with loose strands all around.

39. Mocha Autumn Hair Colors

In a nutshell, basically any shade of brown you can think of is in style this autumn. From dark mocha to milk chocolate and everything in between, you’ll easily be able to pull off any tone in the palette. If you’re a natural brunette, hold off the hair dye. You won’t regret it!

40. Icy Blonde Hair Colors

Finally, we’ll leave you with a shade that you can to wear during autumn, winter, and even spring and still be on top of the latest trends. Icy blonde, frosted blonde, champagne blonde – no matter how you call it, it’s a gorgeous light shade that will brighten up any cloudy day.
