Fall Hairstyles of 2022
Updated: Sep 27
Farewell Summer! Autumn has arrived and with it comes the desire to shift gears. It’s when we crave sweaters, warm drinks, cuddles, crisp air, and jumping into piles of leaves.
A seasonal shift is also a great time to gift yourself a makeover and try out that new hair color or style you’ve been contemplating.
So bust out those cute boots and scarves because it’s time to get cozy chic with these sultry, but low maintenance hairstyles that rocked the runways and red carpets this year.
Here are our top 5 hairstyles for Fall 2022!
Make it sleek, make it twist, make it long, and drop it low!
Ponytails are making their presence known this fall and we offer a cornucopia of styles to choose from. A solid pony is ideal for long hair, but there is more to it than just throwing it up in an elastic.
Sleek looks can be achieved with a little help from a flat iron and a glossy hair serum. Got braids? These ponies will work wonders for your luscious locks, too!
You can place your ponytail high on the crown of your head as a power move or hang her low for a devil may care attitude. Add a twist around the elastic to spice it up! Click here for easy ponytail twist tutorials.
Oh, and extra-long ponytails are in this season so don’t shy away from the extensions if you’re feeling squirrely.
Bobs are so in right now! Luckily, no matter what your hair texture is, there is a bob cut for you just waiting to be revealed.
Shag Bobs look great on naturally curly and wavy hair. The hair’s natural body makes this style effortless and sexy. You can go bigger with volumizer and a diffuser or tame it a bit with pomade.
Micro Bobs are ideal for straight hair and those not afraid to sport blunt bangs. The micro can reach just above or below the ear. It’s perfect if you want to show off your long, statuesque neck and statement earrings.
The Bouncy Bob is another fan favorite for all hair types. This style works best with slightly longer layers that brush the tops of your shoulders. Braid your layers for some swing and don’t forget to accessorize with this season’s hottest hair bling! Add big barrel curls to your layers and hit it with some hairspray for added bounce.
The Hybrid Bob, a.k.a. the “bixie”, is a blend of the pixie cut and the traditional bob. It’s great for any hair type because of the versatility of the style and length. It also looks great with accessories! Headbands, hair clips, and beads will blend deliciously with this style like pumpkin and spice, baby.
Face Framing Pieces
Curtain Bangs, Layers, and Braids. Oh my! Forget the makeup contouring, just frame that beautiful face with your hair.
For an oval face, go for longer layers that start right under the chin. This is ideal for thick, curly or wavy hair.
If you have a square face shape, keep your layers light, wispy and to a minimum. Shoulder length tresses flatter this face shape best because it creates a round, soft look to the jawline.
Round face shapes are very versatile and can rock long or short layers depending on which part of your face you are wanting to highlight. Long layers will make your face look thinner, while shorter layers will create the illusion of higher cheekbones.
For a heart shaped face, the rule is: start the layers high to add dimension and balance to the structure of the face.
Wispy, curtain bangs appeared all over the runway this year, so why not give them a try? These versatile bangs can look great on any face type!
Layered 90s Blowout
There were lots of great things about the 90s and the hair styles were one of them. The effortless, tousled look is in again. This style is ideal for longer tresses. Give those long layers a refresh chop and some hair dryer heat. Don’t forget a heat protectant!
Don’t have long hair? Fear not my short haired maidens, you can still serve up that 90s realness with some mousse and a little headbanging to Nirvana.
This fool proof updo will always be a tried-and-true win for guys and gals on the go. The sleek bun was popular on the red carpets this year and we’re adding to our hot list this fall. All it takes to accomplish this polished look is a little anti frizz serum and an elastic.
You can place your bun high or low and experiment with parting your hair in different ways. Any hair type can rock this timeless look!
The hottest hues this season are noir brown, smoked chestnut, carnelian copper, and tiger orange. Add in some delicate highlights, melted roots, shadow roots or play with two-toned color for added complexity and depth.
The leaves are changing colors so why not you? Stop denying the world your sexy! It’s Autumn. It’s time to unleash your inner Fall fox. So, what are you waiting for? Give these top 5 fall hairstyles of 2022 a try!
