Hair this fall is all about the DRAMA of SIMPLICITY. Francesca Mineo, hairstylist at Carmen, Carmen an AVEDA Salon at BELK shares 4 hair trends for fall.

TEXTURE- This fall, the texture is soft and easy. Think undone and effortless. Francesca uses a medium curling iron to wand hair in loose waves and finger combs them to a soft texture. Texture trends for fall:

Loose waves

Textured top knots

Undone braids

Natural coils

LENGTH – Celebrities are going the extra mile when it comes to the length of their tresses.  The Cher inspired mermaid hair is on trend and as an added touch of drama it’s being done with platinum color.  On the other end of the spectrum a thicker curlier bob with bangs is replacing the lob from last season. Also, embracing your natural coils is stellar and when it comes to how to style it, a triangular shape is popular this fall. Length trends:

Mermaid length hair

Lash skimming bangs

Midi cut

Triangular shaped natural coil bobs

ACCESSORIES – Girlie accessories for the hair graced the fashion runways and as we head into party season, you’ll enjoy the idea of adding charms and feminine accents to your hair.  Francesca says scarves coupled with undone braids and loose waves are right on trend. Hair accessory trends:

Soft ribbons and bows

Boho chic scarves

Exposed bobby pins

Brooches and jewelry

COLOR – Surprisingly the lighter, brighter hue of platinum is the go-to color for fall.  Coupled with darker hues blonde highlights and balayage are being seen in the fashion magazines.  Dark roots and light tresses, chocolate layers with blonde peekaboo are being requested as the temperature drops.  Hair color trends:

Rooty blonde

Dark expressos with blonde peekaboo highlights


Honey blonde

Pastel peekaboo hairs
