However, before debuting a new look, your hair requires some love and pampering. After months of letting it suffer through extensive exposure to sun, saltwater and chlorine, your hair is ready for some proper damage control.

According to professional hairstylists, several steps are suggested to transitioning your hair routine. First of all, you should integrate scalp and hair treatments, since the scalp is more prone to drying out when seasons change. Some recommended products include Kérastase’s Initialiste Advanced Scalp & Hair Serum, Moroccanoil’s Dry Scalp Treatment and Bumble and Bumble’s Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Balm-to-Oil Pre Shampoo Masque.

In case your hair color has faded, try to avoid any products that contain sulfates and use clean shampoos and conditioners instead. Honest Beauty, co-founded by actress Jessica Alba, offers amazing hydrating shampoo and conditioner, free from any harmful chemicals. Another tip to touch up your colored hair is to get hold of the Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse by DPHUE, a favorite amongst hair experts.  

Last but not least, you should consider updating your hair toolkit. Curling and flat irons that have been used for years are often covered in hairspray and other residues. Step up your styling game by investing in some new tools that are gently on your mane. Have you ever tested the GHD smart straightener or one of Drybar’s curlers? If not, you should definitely do so – thank us later!

With all these pro tips at your hand, let’s now get into the top 5 trending hair looks of the upcoming fall season.

Why we love it: This look does not only look chic and elegant, but is also easy to style. It is one of the old-time classics that recently had its comeback and was seen all over on red carpets and during NYFW Fall/Winter 2019.

How to style it: Start with using a blowout lotion, like the one from Living Proof. A large round brush then helps creating the perfect pony about an inch above your hairline. Secure the ponytail with an elastic before you wrap around a small section of hair and fix it with a pin.

2) Blunt Bob

How to style it: Seek advice from your trusted hairstylist about the ideal bob length that works best for your facial features. If you fancy a sleek look, use GHD’s straightener. If you are more keen on some waves, the T3 Interchangeable Curling Iron Set is the tool to go with!

How to style it: Use a 0.75-inch curling iron and wrap the hair around while twisting to create the retro S-wave. Pin the indent of the waves down with flat clips to accentuate them even more. Brush the style out and finish it off with Moroccanoil’s Glimmer Shine for the little extra sparkles.
