These Hairstyles Are Set To Be All The Rage In The Fall Of 2022

Autumn is upon us. The weather is cooling down; the leaves are starting to fall and change is in the air. So, why not make a change to your hair? From 2022 fashion trends to this fall's must-have makeup looks, there are plenty of fresh ways to update your look this season. The ultimate look transformer, hair, is definitely no exception. This season's hair forecast is calling for a high chance of committing to a major crop and maybe a sprinkle of fresh fringe. According to hairstylist, Raven Hurtado, though, fall 2022's biggest trend is experimentation. She told The Zoe Report, "Anything goes this season."

Overall, the easy-breezy, tousled trends we've seen making the rounds this summer are expected to remain through fall, via Bustle. The autumnal twist is that now is the moment to go for something a bit more daring. According to Leysa Carrillo, founder of Forever Curls Academy, "This is a time to get whatever you've always wanted to try." If that leaves you short on ideas for a creative crop, don't worry; we've got the hottest hair trends that will prepare you to have your best cool girl autumn yet. 

Chop chop

One trendy change you may want to make is giving your hair the big chop, and this choice comes in all shapes and sizes. Larry Sims, celebrity hairstylist and co-founder of Flawless by Gabrielle Union told The Zoe Report, "Shaved heads will continue to be on trend as women are taking clippers to their heads." Yes — shaving your head is the ultimate chop, but just imagine how freeing it would feel in this season of renewal.

Of course, there are plenty of ways to make on-trend changes without totally saying "ta-ta" to your tresses. From choppy shags to bouncy blowout volume, a modern way to transform your 'do is with layers. If you want to keep your length while still being on-trend, hairstylist and creative director of Evo International, Tom Smith, told Stylist that medium length, flippy hair like Jodi Comer's is a chic choice for this fall. Smith says for this look, "ask for a length that sits between the top of your shoulder and the top of your collarbone with soft, face-framing layers that are designed to be worn flipped over to one side for maximum volume and airiness."

If layers aren't your style, opt for the curtain cut: a blunt bob parted in the center à la Kourtney Kardashian. This sleek look frames the face and makes a statement. For a less-harsh but equally high-fashion look, the Botticelli bob is a loosely wavy style, which is also referred to as "ruffle waves," via Stylist.

Be bold with bangs

Bangs have always been an easy way to make a fresh statement with your locks without committing to too much change. In fall 2022, we'll be seeing plenty of bangs in many different styles. Curtain bangs have been in for the past few years, and they're not going away anytime soon. This season, it-girls are pairing their curtain bangs with a shag haircut that falls just below the shoulders, like Gabrielle Union's chic, tousled cut. Tom Smith told Stylist that "bottleneck bangs" are another trendy option. Smith describes this look as, longer bangs that skim your cheekbones at an angle that flatters your face, curving around to create a layer that sits somewhere between your cheekbones and jaw."

Cutting classic bangs that go straight across and frame your face is also having a major moment. Hairstylist to the stars, Sunnie Brook, says that now is the moment to snip yourself some fringe. Brook told Bustle, "Making the decision to cut your bangs can be scary, but if you're getting the itch for some face-framing fringe, fall is the right time to get them cut." It's true: embarking on a totally new look with your hair can be intimidating, but since the experts say that this fall is the moment for total hairstyle transformation, we say, go for it.
