If you don’t want to make such a big change and cut your hair shorter, there are plenty of options to styling your long locks for fall. Whether you like your tresses flowing on your back, or kept in a nice updo for more freedom, hairstylists offer you many alternatives to try this season. So take a look at some of the best hairstyles to really heat things up in fall:

1. Long round layered hair

This is a trendy hairstyle that you can style traditionally, or you can let hair grow long so that the rounded layers curl on their own. It’s a great style for most face shapes, as the hair length is perfect for square and round faces, while the face framing layers favor oval or long face shapes.

How to Style

  1. Add some hair straightening product to damp hair.
  2. Divide hair into sections and blow dry each section separately.
  3. Part hair on the desired side.
  4. Finish with medium hold hair spray.
  5. Pull some hair strands from the side opposite to the braid’s side.
Best Face Shape and Hair Type: Works great on all face shapes, on thin or thick, straight hair.

2. Large side Diva curls

If you really like curls but are tired from having the same look for a while, try the sided curls for a refreshed, wavy look! Curls soften your facial features and are a great way of adding volume to your hair.

How to Style

  1. Work mousse or cream for curls on damp hair.
  2. Blow dry using a medium-sized curling brush, or let air dry.
  3. If you let our hair air dry, use a large barrel curling iron or rollers to get those large, loose curls.
  4. Part hair on desired side, add your curls to the front on one shoulder and break them with your fingers.
  5. Finish with medium hold hair spray.
Best Face Shape and Hair Type: Works great on oval, round and square face shapes, on thick, straight or wavy hair.

3. Braided updo

There are times when you want your long locks out of the way. That’s why braids and buns were invented! So how about combining two of the greatest styles into a braided bun? This is an easy style to create and gives you a romantic, loose air.

How to Style

  1. Wash hair and towel dry.
  2. Start braiding a regular braid from the base of your neck to ends.
  3. Twist the braid into a low bun.
  4. Secure with several bobby pins.
  5. Pull out some short strands to frame your face.
Best Face Shape and Hair Type: Works best on oval, square, round, and heart-shaped faces, on all hair types.

4. Long bob

The long bob, or “the lob”, is the perfect compromise between cutting your hair, but still wearing it a little long. It’s easy to style and its effect can be maximized if combined with a strong color and glossy hair.

How to Style

  1. Spray straightening serum to damp hair.
  2. Let air dry or blow dry using a paddle brush.
  3. Part on desired side.
  4. Use a hair straightener for strands that are out of place.
  5. Finish with hair spray for shine.
Best Face Shape and Hair Type: Works great on all face shapes, on straight or wavy hair.

5. Long curls with bangs

One of the greatest ways of complementing a long hairstyle is adding bangs. Have you noticed how much bangs can change a person’s look? Bangs are also very functional, as they can be used for hiding a wide forehead and creating more symmetry to your face.

How to Style

  1. Work volumizing mousse to damp hair.
  2. Blow dry hair or let air dry. Use a straight paddle brush to style bangs.
  3. Part hair on desired side.
  4. Use a curling iron to create waves on the lower half of your hair’s lengths.
  5. Finish with medium hold hair spray.
Best Face Shape and Hair Type: Works best on oval, square or round faces, on thick, straight or wavy hair.
