Fall is a great time to embrace not only bonfires, flannels, and the changing leaves, but new fashion trends—our favorite! It’s the perfect time to switch up your look if you’ve been wanting a reason to make a big change. Whether you’re changing up the color, cut, or adding in some accessories, there are plenty of options to choose from if you want to enjoy this year’s fall hair and make-up trends.


It can be hard to decide on just one style, but there are plenty of styles to choose from to be trendy in the fall. One fall hair trend is to go dark—we know, go figure—but we stick by it. Fall is a time to embrace the cooler tones and darker colors, so it’s no surprise that your hair should follow suit. This can mean going after a beautiful, chocolate brown or even a deep, rich red.


At this year’s New York Fashion, we saw styles ranging from full-bodied curls to super straight tresses. These looks gave us a good idea of what trends we expected to see this fall. A go-to trend this season is big texture, or disco texture. If you’re going for this look, think voluminous and brushed out curls. There’s a reason it’s been in style for decades…and it’s not going anywhere.

This time of year is perfect to showcase your new hair accessories. We’ve already been seeing scrunchies make a comeback, so it’s about time that hair clips do too! Hair clips are the perfect way to add a little something to your everyday hair. They can also spice up a standard braid or updo. Whether it’s several small clips or one large attention-grabbing one, hair clips are a clear sign you are with the trends this season. One of the easiest hairdos you can add clips to is the ever-sleek low pony. Low ponys are low maintenance enough for a casual style when your hair feels dry and untamable due to the fall air.

Finally, fall makeup styles are perfect for taking advantage of the darker colors that haven’t been used all summer. Going dark is a good thing for all makeup looks in the fall, but a dramatic lip is especially in. You can stick with a classic matte red, but there’s also the option to go for a velvety purple. For the lip to pop, a subtle blush is necessary. If lips aren’t your best feature, then highlight your face with some deep blushes and stark contour shades. You don’t want to have too many attention points with your makeup, so pick on feature to focus on and go from there.

No matter what trend you’re going after or if you want to be a trendsetter, there are tons of looks to choose from this fall. A special thanks to Kate McAlister, our Level 3: Elite Stylist at Eastside, for contributing to the trends of this upcoming season.
