Nikola Topic - Upsplash

It’s that time of the year again when leaves start falling, and we get to enjoy all the beautiful red, yellow, and orange-hued foliage. Yes, friends, it’s finally fall!

While some of us hate to see summer go, many of us live for crisp, cool days. Plus, there are many opportunities for change that come with the shift in seasons. And, what better way to embrace autumn than by updating your hairstyle? Cooler temperatures and reduced humidity often mean more manageable hair.

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to switch up your go-to style just in time for the new season. You don’t have to spend hours experimenting with new looks — we’ve put together this list of perfect hairstyles for autumn. Keep reading for some amazing hair inspo for styles to try this fall.

1. Short Updo

The short updo is ideal for women with shorter hair as it makes your locks look fuller and more playful. One variation to try is a half-up twisted ponytail secured at the back with bobby pins. The best part? You can even rock this style at formal events and parties and look put-together every time.

2. Totally Knotty

Want your hair to exude a slightly undone, cool-girl effect this autumn? Give your messy ponytail a twist by adding a few knots to the mix. This style is pretty and super easy to achieve. While it suits most face shapes and hair types, it looks perfect on medium to long hair.

If your hair is short and you want to sport a knotty style, consider wearing clip in or tape-in hair extensions. These semi-permanent extensions will add length, volume, and thickness to your hair, making it easy to pull your locks into your desired look.

For the best results, be sure to pick only Remy human hair extensions, as they look natural and blend beautifully with your hair. For example, when you choose a Zala clip-in hair extension or tape-in extension, you receive a superior result because they’re made from 100% Remy hair. Remy hair extensions look natural because the cuticle is intact; it has not had chemical damage or wear.

3. Braided Tendrils

This is yet another gorgeous and trendy style we’re seeing in our social media feeds. The braids at the forefront give your face a soft framing effect. But you’re free to play around with the braids and position them anywhere you please to achieve a fun, 90s vibe.

Want to take the braided tendrils up a notch? Add accessories like a headband to the mix!

4. Twist and Shout

It’s no secret that braids look elegant on anyone with long hair. But when you add twists to the braids, they look especially unique. Twists can also create added depth and texture. Make the twist and shout look less formal by leaving a few strands free at the front for a face frame.

Got short or medium hair and want to try the twist and shout style? Grab a set of hair extensions to pull off the look. Add high-quality tape-in extensions like Zala hair extensions to your hair, and you’ll get the length and thickness you need for this unexpected style.

5. Messy Side Fishtail Updo

The messy side fishtail is a hot trend among all the fall hairstyles right now. It not only looks stunning but is also comfortable to wear. But you may need the help of a friend to pull your locks into this braided style, since it can be difficult to keep your hair in place when you’re first trying it out. With some practice, you’ll learn to pull your hair into this style in a few minutes.

6. Ballerina Bun

The ballerina bun is not just for dancers. This timeless hairstyle looks chic on anyone. It helps keep any loose stands away from your face and neck, so it’s great for apple picking and other outdoor fall activities. The exceptionally high bun will also help keep your face as the focal point. You’re free to experiment with the bun’s placement; try wearing it high on the top of your head or go lower at the back.

7. Braided Crown Undercut

Want to flaunt a bold undercut hairdo this fall? Consider the braided crown undercut that gives a daring vibe that still flatters. This style perfectly matches most outfits, from your favorite plaid button-down to flowy fall dresses.

8. The Half-Up

The classic half-up is an easy way to supercharge your style and overall look this fall. It looks great no matter your hair’s length, cut, or texture. It’s also a great way to show off your fringe if you have bangs, but it’s versatile enough even for women with no bangs to keep their locks out of their faces.

9. Messy Bun

The messy bun is timeless and always on trend. You can pull your hair into a messy bun in as little as two minutes. Just set a few strands loose at the crown and under the bun, and you’ll get that carefree vibe. See this look here.

10. Mermaid Waves


Mermaid waves add body, volume, bounce, and can outline your tresses without using hot tools like curling wands or iron if you braid wet strands. The whirling waves and big crinkles add a unique level of dimension to your overall look. Mermaid waves look perfect on long hair, so if your hair is on the short side, you may want to rock this style with a set of hair extensions.
