You Won’t Want to Miss This: The Top 21 Celebrity Hairstyles for Fall

Fall is upon us and the leaves of change are inspiring us to transform ourselves and shift our styles. From sundresses and tanktops, we are moving into cozy sweaters and layered looks with hair colors changing from honey blondes to muted cool beiges. It’s time to be the trendsetter for fall and you have came to the right place for inspiration. Here is a sneak peak into the top celebrity hairstyles that are inspiring us this fall season!

Ariana Grande’s Grande Curls

Ariana’s high pony with full hair and large curls keep the look youthful and bouncy.

Ariana High Pony with CurlsAriana High Pony with Curls Back

How to Style:

  1. Cocktail your heat protector and a light mousse.
  2. Blow dry your hair in sections with a round brush (the longer your hair, the bigger your brush and vice versa). This step is really just to help you polish your hair and start the curl.
  3. Tilt your head back and secure a high ponytail with an elastic. This helps you achieve a higher ponytail. When you tilt you head back forward, the hair at your neckline will be smooth and tight!
  4. Take a small section of hair and wrap it around the base of the ponytail to hide the elastic.
  5. Use a large, 2-inch barrel curling iron and curl up to the ponytail starting from the ends. It would be a great idea to pin curl the curls and let them cool before taking them down.

Recommended Products :

Try Wella Flowing Form for heat protection and Wella Natural Volume Mousse or Extra Volume Mousse for volume. I like these products because they leave the hair totally brushable and touchable!

Best Face Shape & Hair Type:

Any face shape and hair type will be able to wear this hairstyle. Adding bangs would personalize it even more!

Tip:

Try using your favorite necklace or bracelet to hide the ponytail elastic. Don’t be afraid to let some of the hair around your face down with this look either.

Kendal Jenner the Down the Center Smooth Operator

This is probably the most popular look this season. Celebrities everywhere are wearing their hair down and smooth, some tucked behind their ears or just naturally flowing down.

Kendall Jenner Long Smooth Hairstyle

How to Style:

  1. Prepare damp hair with a heat protecting lotion and part in the middle.
  2. Blow dry your hair with a paddle brush to straighten.
  3. Add gloss drops for added heat protection.
  4. Iron hair with the proper heat.
  5. Add more gloss to your hair and tuck behind your ear.

Recommended Products

I like Wella Enrich Straight Leave-in Crème for heat protection and Wella Oil Reflections for fine to medium hair or Wella Mirror Polish for medium to coarse hair.

Best Face Shape & Hair Type:

This look is pretty versatile, however if you have a square, heart or diamond face shape, you would want to avoid putting your hair behind your ears. If you have a long shaped face, you would probably want to incorporate a side bang or have the part for the look start on one of the sides.

Tip:

Don’t be scared to add in a clip-in extention for a little extra color. If it is a natural tone, even better!

Colbie Caillat’s Boho Natural Waves with a Headband

The most simple of all the looks, this natural texture with the added hair accessory make it easy to recreate and individualize.

Colbie Caillat Boho Waves with Headband

How to Style:

  1. After showering, towel dry hair and spray in a sea salt spray.
  2. Diffuse hair until about 85-90% dry.
  3. Let hair dry naturally to finish before you run your fingers through to break apart the waves.
  4. Add your hair accessory!

Recommended Products

Use Wella Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray for that gritty, just-left-the-beach look and Sebastian Shine Shaker for incredible shine.

Best Face Shape & Hair Type:

diamond, heart, round

Tip:

Take the ends of your hair and tuck them back into the headband to create a boho chic faux bob.

Debra Messing is Making Waves

Smooth and elegant, this wavy look is perfect for any occasion.

Debra Messing Smooth Elegant Hairstyle

How to Style:

  1. Add your favorite leave-in heat protector to damp hair.
  2. Blow dry with a medium to large roundbrush until completely dry.
  3. Wrap hair around a 1½-inch curling iron (going away from your face) and let the curls hang to cool.
  4. After the curls have cooled, use a boar bristle brush to brush all of your hair to one side.
  5. Add a small amount of shine serum to finish it off!

Recommended Products:

I love Wella Flowing Form for gloss and heat protection and Wella Luxe Oil for a gloss that won’t weigh the hair down.

Best Face Shape & Hair Type:

round, oval, diamond, heart, square, long

Tip:

If your hair isn’t long enough to reach around from the back of one side to the other, try adding a braid on the short side to hold it that way.

Felicity Huffman’s Tuck it in Updo

Give short hair a test drive without the commitment using this tucked in updo a la the always lovely Felicity.

Felicity Huffman Updo Felicity Huffman Updo Side

How to Style:

  1. Always add a heat protecting lotion to keep blonde hair like this protected.
  2. Use a natural hold mousse for volumized texture and root lift.
  3. Round brush the hair in small sections and, as you move on to the next section, pin the previous one up like a pin curl to help the hair curl cool off in its curly state.
  4. Once dry, take small sections beginning from the front and backcomb the roots for volume throughout.
  5. Gather your hair as if you are going to put it in a ponytail and roll it into itself at the back of your head and pin it. Don’t worry about hair that is left out — it will give a more natural look!
  6. Spray hair with a firm hairspray from 10-12 inches away. This will keep the hair looking dry and not moist from the spray.

Recommended Products:

Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep is a great heat protector for this look and it has natural aloe for moisture. Wella Natural Volume Mousse is going to give you exactly what it promises — natural volume without the crisp feeling from other mousses. Wella Stay Firm or Aveda Control Force Hairspray would both work to secure any flyaways and keep this pretty style in place.

Best Face Shape & Hair Type:

Any face shape can wear this tucked updo depending on the parting, fringe and volume achieved.

Tip:

For super fine hair, add a foam block the same color as your hair to help make your hair appear fuller in this style.

Heidi Klum – The Glam Wave

This “everyday” style works for almost everyone. It’s a great way to keep your hair out of your face without pulling it all the way back this fall season.

Heidi Klum Glamorous Waves

How to Style:

  1. Add a heat protector to damp hair and section hair down the center. Blow dry hair smooth with a paddle or round brush.
  2. Using a 1-inch curling iron or tong, wrap hair around the tool, going away from the face. Once you let the curl down, give it a little tug to lengthen the curl.
  3. After finishing all of the curls, add a small amount of shine serum and brush your hands through your hair gently to give gloss to the style.

Recommended Products:

Use Wella Flowing Form for heat protection and Wella Oil Reflections for a lightweight shine.

Best Face Shape & Hair Type:

Heart, round, square and diamond face shapes wear these glam waves well. Avoid this style if you have a long face because the hair close around the face and could make it appear even longer.

Tip:

Don’t curl the hair over the top of your head. Keep the curling iron or flat iron on the sides of your head to have the curls start lower.

Joanne Froggatt’s Tousled and Braided Updo

This updo is perfect for when you want everyone to think you spent hours on your style this fall season. They best part? You can do it in mere minutes!

Joanne Froggatt Braided UpdoJoanne Froggatt Braided Updo Back

How to Style:

  1. While hair is damp, cocktail your mousse and heat protector and add them to your hair.
  2. Blow dry smooth using your favorite brush.
  3. Separate hair from ear to ear going across the back of your head and create a ponytail with the section underneath for later use.
  4. Add volume to the entire top by backcombing the roots and then brushing the hair back with your fingers. Add an elastic to that hair right above the other ponytail.
  5. Braid both ponytails and roughen them up a little bit by stretching them out a bit.
  6. Wind them around a little and pin them to back of the head.
  7. Finish with your favorite hairspray.

Recommended Products:

I recommend Wella Extra Volume Mousse, Wella Flowing Form Heat Protector, and Wella Stay Firm Hairspray or Sebastian Shaper Plus.

Best Face Shape & Hair Type:

Oval, long (if you keep it more flat on the top of the head), round or square face shapes can all wear this style with an added side fringe.

Tip:

A stylist’s secret tips for success when using bobby pins:

  1. Add the pins into the hair in a swirling motion. It will capture more hair and hold it even better.
  2. Make sure the wavy side of the bobby pin goes closest to the head because as you push it in, it will grab up hair close to the head and stay super secure.

Tamera Foster’s Curls Gone Wild!

If you have naturally curly hair, set it free for fall!

Tamera Foster Naturally Curly Hairstyle

How to Style:

  1. Cocktail your favorite deep conditioner or leave-in conditioner with a shine serum and work through damp hair.
  2. Rake your hands through all of your hair from roots to ends to help encourage the hair to have lift and separation.
  3. Grab the ends of your hair and shake them a little to loosen the sections.
  4. Diffuse until about 75-80% dry and then let the hair dry naturally after that.

Recommended Products:

I love Aveda Brilliant Universal Styling Crème for a leave-in shine lotion and Aveda Brilliant Emollient for a shine serum.

Best Face Shape & Hair Type:

This style works well with all face shapes, but keep some bobby pins with you in case you get overwhelmed by the curls falling into your face.

Tip: 

Curly hair is super easy to create a quick updo with. Instead of keeping a hair elastic or tie with you, keep a bundle of bobby pins (I keep some in a Tic-Tac container!) to give yourself a quick up style that’s sexier than a typical pony.

Taylor Swift – Tousled and Curled

This look is a great go-to hairstyle when you don’t want to stress about pinning your hair up this fall.

  2. Wrap vertical sections around a 1-inch curling iron and pull the section gently to loosen the curl before moving on to the next section.
  3. Once you have all the curls complete, rake your hands through your hair to loosen things up a bit.
  4. Add a light hold hairspray to keep the shape soft and touchable.

Because of the length in the front, this short style can be worn volumized or smooth. It’s the perfect combination of classic and contemporary hairstyling, using a disconnection to keep things from getting too bulky.
