This summer has been a doozy and we at Lock & Mane are ready to say sayonara to humidity, frizzies, unruly curls and all around heat wave-schvitzing (it’s a technical term). Bring on the jeans, boots, pumpkin lattes and fabulous, crisp Autumn hair weather!
In anticipation of this, our favorite hair season, we reached out to our mane experts for their take on Fall’s hottest tress trends. The hair gods have spoken: Technicolor strands are out, choppy, asymmetrical bobs are in, and the braid is here to stay.
While celebs like Blake Lively and Kate Middleton made us swoon over their covet-worthy long, luscious locks this summer, hair god Oscar Blandi predicts that textured, choppier long bobs (like Jennifer Aniston’s recent crop) will be a major trend for the coming season. Celeb stylist John Ruggiero agrees: “shoulder length and above styles are the hot look for Fall.” Ruggiero loves Kate Winslet’s shoulder-length style in the St. John ad campaign.
This effortless look is not only sophisticated and modern but easy for the average gal to handle. No matter how much we may desire Kardashian length with Middleton shine, real ladies who don’t have a hair entourage at their beck and call may find a sensible yet chic shoulder-length cut the best option for Autumn.
Our favorite summertime hairstyle, the ubiquitous braid, will continue its world domination throughout the next season. “I don’t see the braid trend diminishing in any way,” says celebrity stylist Aviva, “It’s a great alternative to a pony tail when you want to tie your hair back and you can add so much texture to the look.” Aviva also expects to see a lot of braided updos on the red carpet, a look we at L&M adore since it can be easily copied at home by the average gal for special occasions and busy workdays.
