Summer humidity can limit our hairstyling options, so we’re already thinking about all of the looks we’re going to experiment with come fall. Feeling the same way? Grab your styling tools and some dry shampoo, because we’re sharing the trendiest fall hairstyles for 2022.

Baby Braids

Braids never really go out of season, but the latest trendy hairstyle incorporating the three-strand style might just be one of the cutest looks of the season. The trick for this look is to start off with dry shampoo or a texturizing spray so that your final product doesn’t look stringy — if you have dark hair, try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Tinted Dry Shampoo, or the Redken Deep Clean Dry Shampoo for lighter strands. Then, after fashioning your hair in a sleek middle part, make two tiny braids that frame either side of your face. Tie them off at the ends with a rubber hair tie and you’re set!

’70s Shag

Get the edgy, vintage-inspired look by dusting off your hot rollers. If you don’t have any, a blow dryer brush or a thick-barreled curling iron will do the trick, too — but don’t forget to spray a heat protectant in your hair first! We recommend the Redken One United All-in-One Multi-Benefit Treatment to tame frizz and protect your hair from the high drying temps. Either way, be sure to curl your hair away from your face for a bouncy, luscious look. Click here for a more in-depth feathered hair tutorial.


If you’re low maintenance when it comes to hair, this is the style for you. A claw clip is casual, chic and keeps your hair out of your face, making it an essential accessory to have when heading back to work or school.

Cool-Toned Dye

Remember the copper craze and brunette obsession for summer? Well, there’s a new trendy hairstyle for fall: an icy, cool-toned dye job. If you plan to partake, you’ll need products that make it easy to neutralize brassiness, like the Matrix Total Results Brass Off All-in-One Toning Leave-In Spray. In addition to protecting your color, it helps to moisturize hair and prevent flyaways. Icy blondes or those with silver hair will want to give the Matrix Total Results So Silver All-In-One Toning Leave-In Spray a shot. It’s perfect for getting rid of warm yellow hues and keeping your hair color looking fresh.

Lush Blowout

If the just-got-out-of-bed, effortlessly-chic look was the big hairstyle trend of summer, then the cool, chic, put-together blowout is all the rage for fall. It’s all about the soft glam: luscious hair, big waves and all the shininess you can muster. If your hair is damaged from summer dye jobs and you’re craving that light-reflecting shine, reach for the Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate Intensive Treatment. The formula helps to reinforce weakened hair bonds, helping to prevent further breakage and leave hair smooth and stronger. Before a DIY blowout, consider a nourishing shampoo formula that helps control flyaways, like the Matrix Total Results Mega Sleek Shampoo.

Scarves for Days

Fall is the season of scarves — and not just for your neck. Throw a silk scarf on your hair, wrap it in your braid or tie it around the base of your ponytail or bun. It’s the quickest way to seamlessly elevate your hairstyle, and with a good holding spray like the Kérastase Laque Noire to hold in your braids or bun all day, you’ll look like you’re heading to a photoshoot.

Sleek Middle Part

Keep it classic, keep it chic, keep it sleek. A straight part down the middle of your hair is perhaps the easiest way to get a trendy look for fall. To achieve the ultimate look, amplify your hair to its full potential with the Garnier Sleek & Shine Glass Hair Water, a rinse-out treatment that gives you a super glossy look in minutes.
