5 celebrity hairstyles for fall 2012
Before you trade in your summer ‘do, find out which hairstyles Hollywood is fawning over this season. From sleek and androgynous to sparkly and feminine, this fall is all about out-of-the-ordinary hairstyle trends
1. Blunt bangs
Spotted on the runways at Marni and Versace this season, heavy, straight-cut bangs are making a comeback and celebs like Jessica Biel, are already on board. The beauty of bangs is that they help frame the face, cover up a wide set forehead, and they enhance the eyes. Adopt the look yourself for a super trendy and positively chic look.
2. Ornate hair accessories
Oscar de la Renta, Rodarte and Dolce & Gabbana showed us that bling is in for fall 2012. Take your cue from the star of the summer flick Snow White and the Hunstman, Charlize Theron, and get your ‘do all dolled up. Opt for rhinestones, pearls or gold accents for a vintage take on fall 2012’s trendiest styles.
3. Chestnut hair
It’s time to trade in your beach-blond waves and opt for a darker, sleeker, autumn look. Khloé Kardashian rocked pale ombré hair this summer and while she’s showing us two-toned hair is still in, fall 2012 is about a darker look with subtle highlights.
4. Low-hanging braid
Whether you’re a fan of the fishtail braid or you simply prefer a traditional braid, the idea this fall is to keep it on the down-lo. The hot look for fall 2012, seen on the gorgeous Blake Lively, is a slicked back ponytail that ties just below the ears. Start the braid off from there for a quick, easy, low-maintenance look that’s on trend.
5. Top knot
Gwen Stefani is back on the scene with No Doubt and she brought her signature hairstyle back with her. Also seen on stars like Lea Michele and Jennifer Lopez, the top knot is getting loads of attention. It’s also one of the top fall wedding trends so if you’re saying your “I Dos” this season, this is a look to consider. Opt for a sleek variation for a fancy occasion or adopt Gwen’s messy style for every day.
