How Can I Change My Hair in the Fall?


Fall is the season of change. It gets chilly, the leaves change color and fall, and the days grow shorter. In the spirit of change, it makes total sense to change up your hair, too! But what exactly should you do? It’s good that you found this article. In it, we’ll share several ways to refresh your look for the season. 

Color Your Hair 

Countless people update their hair color in preparation for fall, often switching from lighter or pastel colors to richer, darker hues. If your hair is in good condition and you’ve been looking for a change, this is the ideal way to change your hair up in the fall. Before you choose a color, browse the internet for inspiration - there are way more options than you think. 

Some of the best hair colors for fall are rich chocolate brown, fire engine red, Barbie blonde, and soft black. If you’re new to coloring your hair, it makes total sense to consult a stylist in your area to find out how to get the color results you’re going for. 

Get a Haircut

If you’re feeling daring, reach for the scissors! A new haircut can make you feel brand new, and there are so many possibilities to consider, you’re sure to find the perfect cut. You can go for something subtle, where you’ll simply cut off any dead ends, or go all out and try something funky and short. Here are a few of the trendiest fall haircuts you’ll see this year: 

  • Curtain bangs

  • Italian bob

  • Pixie cuts 

  • Lob

  • Modern Shag 

When updating your hair with a cut, it’s crucial not to rush into things. Once that hair is gone, it takes a long time to grow back.  

Go Longer

Temperatures drop in the fall, so you might welcome the warmth of your hair on your shoulders. In this case, go longer! There are a few ways to do this, but here are the most common: 

  • Get yourself a wig 

  • Try extension braids

  • Wear clip-in, glue-in, or tape-in extensions

Wigs and extensions come in various textures, lengths, and styles. So, choose some that mesh with your personality and then personalize them further. You might choose a long wig and add layers to it, or try some long tribal braids with beads.

Experiment with Your Part

Are you someone who usually wears their hair parted to one side or in the middle? If so, and you don’t want to do anything drastic, you can satisfy your need for change by experimenting with your part. Try a side or deep side part if you normally wear your hair with a middle part. If you’re normally a side-part gal, go for a middle part. It doesn’t seem like much, but it could really make a difference, and it doesn’t require salon trips, products, or hair damage. 

So, there you have it - several ways to update your hair for the fall. We hope you found the information you were looking for, and we wish you the best with your mane.
