Beauty Report: The best fall hair trends for 2016

Your wardrobe’s not the only thing in need of an update this fall. The messy, beachy strands you rocked all summer were great, but it’s September and that means it’s time for a new look. We scoured the fall 2016 runways to find the most amazing hair trends. Check out these four hair trends to try now, along with a how-to guide for recreating each.

TEXTURE

It’s no wonder texture is so popular this season: it’s chic, works on any hair type, and camouflages a bad hair day in a snap. Texture easily works with your hair rather than against it. An easy way to texturize your locks as seen at New York Fashion Week is using the wet roots/dry ends technique. There’s almost a rockabilly vibe to this hair, which is achieved with generous amounts of gel, mousse and lots of attitude. Apply Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME® Amino-Q Hold™ Gel to your roots and use a wide tooth comb to pull your hair back off of your face. Lightly blow dry the ends of your hair with a diffuser, twisting Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME® Biotin+ Volume™ Mousse mid-shaft down, and shaking it all out.

FRENCH PLAITS

There are braids and then there are plaits. One of the most intriguing fall hairstyle trends is in the form of French plaits, which are more twisted creations across the center of the head and the crown. Try a glam braided bun for a regal feel this fall. First, braid a 2-inch-wide section of hair from behind either ear and set it aside. Braid the rest and wrap it into a bun. Secure with an elastic. Wrap the first braid around your head and pin to the bun. Complete your look by spraying Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME® Crystal Shine Hairspray all over.

ANTIQUE ACCESSORIES

The hair accessories on the fall runways were closer to the trinkets you'd find if you were to go digging around your great-grandmother’s attic than they were to the simple metallic barrettes of past seasons. Update your next half-up bun, or hun, with an antique inspired headband. Add some texture to your hair by backcombing or ruffling it vigorously with fingertips. Section the top layer of your hair with your fingertips into a roughly inverted V by running fingers from the tops of your ears to the crown of your head. Tie in a ponytail and pull the hair coming out the pony into a circle around the band, pull it into the shape you’d like, and throw on your antique headband. Finish your hun with some Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME® Amino-Q Hold™ Hairspray.

FINGER WAVES

Old school marcel waves made popular by flappers and '20s film stars are back in softer, finger wave form this season. Make a deep side part and work Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME® Amino-Q Hold™ Gel through the front section. Then, take a comb and shape the hair around your face in S-formation and clip the curves in place to set them. Remove and mist with Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME® Crystal Shine™ Hairspray when you're ready to go.
