If you organize your fall to-do list in terms of your level of excitement, it’s high time to begin checking things off. Start with the appointments that feel like self-care, whether that’s booking in for the laser hair removal consult you’ve been saving for all summer, a simple brow cleanup or facial, or the salon appointment that leaves you with the most obvious change: a haircut.
If you’ve been going back and forth about what to ask for, we have some ideas. There are a few big hairstyle style trends coming out of salons across the country right now. While they’re all pretty classic, it means you can take the visual you love most, and tweak it depending on your texture, length preference, or curl pattern. A few thought-starter cuts for your upcoming appointment, ahead.Fresh Layers
A subtle scissor-shaping can make a huge difference in the way your hair falls. If you have long hair and don’t want to cut too much off the ends, consider adding long, fine layers in throughout the front to give more movement and bounce.Shaved Pixie
Get that back-to-school energy with a big chop. You can close-buzz the sides and leave a little length on the top, like writer and art curator Kimberly Drew.Jawline Bob
Nothing says autumnal fashion quite like green suede styled with a fresh-cut bob that’s sharp and heavy, hitting right at the jawline.Feathered Bangs
Curtain bangs are giving way to a slightly blunter style for fall. Still, the vibe is feathery, so there’s a little forehead peeking through the long curls.Mid-Length Chop
When in doubt, between short and long, go for an easy mid-length cut. It will grow out nicely over the next three months, at which point you might decide you’re ready to take it shorter than your shoulders.
