Asymmetrical Texture

How To Style:
Blow dry hair up and back at the crown to add volume with a small-barreled brush. Blow-dry one side forward and towards the face and the opposite side away for a sweet asymmetrical look. Use your fingers and some product to define all the fun layers embedded throughout this haircut.

Recommended Hair Products:
Use a foaming volumizer like Prive’s Shining Weightless Amplifier while hair is wet and blow dry for great hold and volume. Also use a texture spray or light hold hairspray like Kerastase’s Double Force hairspray to accentuate the layers in the cut.

Tapered tresses in the back flow effortlessly into long flirty pieces around the face for a look that’s nothing short of a show-stopper. Its beautifully bold warm colors accentuate the tons of layers and texture cut into this style. This shorter crop is easy to style and makes you look like a million bucks.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:
This style has a lot of soft layers and hits past the jaw line making it great for all face shapes. Wavy hair would be fabulous for this style but straight and curly haired girls could achieve this pictured look with a bit of effort.

Tip:
Use a flat iron and really straighten out the hair for a shaggy, rocker style.

Sleek shag hairstyle for fall 2016

Medium Sleek Fall Shag

How To Style:
Blow dry hair with a round brush, medium sized, towards the face to really make the layers pop. Blow-dry the top crown layers back and away from the face for instant va va voom volume. Spritz a shine spray all over hair and flat iron bangs down for a sleek shiny finish.

Recommended Hair Products:
To get this sleek look without any frizz use Kerastase’s Oleo Relax Serum while hair is wet before you blow dry and also a little before you flat iron. A little serum goes a long way so use sparingly and only apply from the midshaft to ends.

This modern take on the Pat Benatar accentuates tons of fun razored layers and texture. Having the length sweep up in the front into light pieces that frame the face make this cut totally rocker worthy. The variety of length cut within the style adds lots of movement and volume.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:
Looks great on all face shapes except round because of where the layers hit the jaw line. Works best on straight hair but also works with wavy hair that is blow dried straight.

Tip:
If you want a softer look try parting your hair on the side. Sweeping the bangs to the side makes the style a little less dramatic. Because this cut is so heavily layered it makes it feel light and makes styling a snap!

How To Style:
Blow dry hair with a round brush and really pull the front layers forward toward the face. Use a flat iron after hair is completely dry to flat iron front layers forward. Flat iron the bangs to the side. Tease up the crown area and smooth. Spray with hairspray to hold in place and add your favorite headband or bandana.

Recommended Hair Products:
Use a mousse to add volume and texture to your blow-dry like Pureoloy’s Root Lift. After you tease the hair use a strong hold hairspray like BigSexyHair Spray and Play Volumizing Hair Spray. Spray lightly around the face and really attack the crown area to keep your teasing in place.

Spray each section you tease with hairspray before smoothing back to really secure the cushion of hair you created.

Switch up your part every now and then to add volume. When bangs are this long you can part your hair either way and totally change up your look.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Medium Length Hairstyle for fall 2011

Jennifer Love Hewitt Medium Length Hairstyle for fall 2011

How To Style:
Blow-dry your hair with a large to medium sized brush. Really concentrate your blow-drying efforts on the bangs and the front layers to really show them off around the face. Use a smaller sized brush for the bangs to really make them bump under and shine. If you are not a master with the blow dryer take out your flat iron after hair is completely dry and touch up any frizzy pieces or ends that need smoothing.

Recommended Hair Products:
Garnier Fructis Anti-Frizz Sleek and Shine just does what is says. It locks hair into silky smoothness with no frizz. Apply before flat ironing.
Jennifer Love Hewitt's Statement Bangs

One of the best ways to change your look and add some drama is with blunt cut bangs. The color is all one shade so pumping the look up with the bangs keeps it interesting. Medium layers throughout also help give this style movement and body.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:
Bangs work great on all face shapes! Just be careful if you already have a small forehead, the bangs my crowd your face and not look flattering. Ask your stylist if you can handle them. Silky smooth hair is always easier for naturally straight or slightly wavy haired girls to pull off. Medium to thicker textured hair would work great for this style as well as being blessed with lots of hair.

Tip:
Take small, thin sections of hair when flat ironing to be most efficient. Separate thin sections of the bangs instead of grabbing all of the hair. This extra step will make your life so much easier.

Vanessa Hudgens' Wispy Bob

How To Style:
Ask your stylist to cut an asymmetrical bob with a razor so you’re sure to get those whimsical pieces. If you have naturally wavy to straight hair you should be almost able to get away with wash and go. For a sleeker look take out your flat iron and spruce up the ends and bangs. Use a round brush and a blow dryer to blow the top crown section back for more volume.

Recommended Hair Products:
Blow dry hair with a foam to add some volume that won’t be heavy like Redken’s Instant Bodifier Volumizing Foam. Use a very light-hold hairspray to keep hair looking soft and not crunchy. Nick Chavez Angel Wings Super-Light Hair Spray is touchably soft and won’t flake either.

A fun modern take on the classic bob. Instead of a heavy blunt cut, the hair falls into beautiful wispy ends that look adorable sleek or messy. Short bangs can be parted in the middle, pulled forward, or brushed to the side, giving this cut lots of versatility and also makes it very wash and go.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:
Great for all face shapes but best for girls with thin to medium thickness hair.

Tip:
Taking out your curling iron for this cut would look adorable. Soft curls stacked on top of each other will take this look to a whole new level!

Jayma Mays' Honey Sophistication

How To Style:
Blow-dry your entire head of hair with a large round brush and blow dryer. Start taking medium sized sections of hair (about 2” by 2”) and curl just the ends with a curling iron. This is a great trick to have nice bouncy hair without having to take forever styling. By just curling the ends you’re adding a fun look in seconds.

Recommended Hair Products:
Always protect your strands from heat before using any type of hot iron. Try Pantene’s Fine Hair Heat Protection & Shine Spray, it adds lots of shine while it also keeps hair safe and protected from heat.

This gorgeous honey / strawberry color is another sweet trend for fall. It reflects tons of light and compliments an array of skin tones. This style is super fun to pull off because all you’re really doing is curling the ends!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:
There is more weight at the bottom of this cut so oval shaped faces should stay away from this particular style. All hair textures can achieve this look and looks best on girls who have medium to thick hair.

Tip:
Curl the front pieces away from your face on either side to keep the look balanced.

Fall is a fabulous time to try something new before the big holidays hit. It’s the perfect time to experiment with all the fun new trends such as warm colors, bold bangs, and razored texture. Medium hairstyles are easy to manage and pull off. If you’re considering taking chopping your hair off try one of these mid-length inspirations first. You’ll be enjoying the fall in no time.
