3 Seriously Cool Fall Haircut Trends That Are Big on Style — but Little on Upkeep

10/08/2020 - 09:30 AM

Look to the cyclical nature of trends, and summer has long been established as the all-compassing season of ease. Pool floats! Low-key hairstyles [1]! Vacation days that aren't confined to the white-plastered walls of your tiny apartment living room. But as the all-mighty coronavirus pandemic has shown: societal norms are shifting, in everything from holiday plans to salon requests [2]. Now, it's fall's biggest haircut trends [3] that are truly breezy.

"During this time, most people will want easy, low-maintenance, but stylish haircuts this fall," Larry Sims [4], celebrity hairstylist and co-founder of Flawless by Gabrielle Union [5], told POPSUGAR. "Everyone has been quarantined up in their homes for the most part this year. With not being able to get to salons frequently, most people will opt for cuts that look fly without the commitment of major upkeep."

Whereas historically the autumnal season saw an influx of polished cuts to match those crisp new wardrobes, those are exactly the types of styles to avoid these next few months. "I wouldn't suggest any precision cuts," he said. "Cuts like severe blunt bangs or asymmetrical cuts aren't the prettiest when they grow out, which is important especially if people are unable to get to their hairstylists regularly."

Below, we're breaking down the three pro-approved haircut trends worth trying this fall [6]. Rest assured: they couldn't get any easier.

Fall 2020 Haircut Trend: Buzzcuts

As so eloquently demonstrated by Tallulah Willis [7] and Antoni Porowski [8]: "A huge hair trend for this fall will be buzzcuts [9]," said Sims. Perhaps the most dramatic of changes, to be sure, but he says it seems to be exactly what people are looking for right now. "As we've adapted to our new 'normal,' people are wanting to use this time to get rid of damaged hair and old energy. Cutting it all off feels fresh and new."

Fall 2020 Haircut Trend: The Lob

The long bob haircut [13] — or simply the lob, as we've come to know it – is one of the biggest styles to come out of quarantine. Not only does it give you the best of both worlds, in that it's long enough to wear in a ponytail yet short enough to accentuate your facial features, but it's also extremely flattering. "It [looks good on] all hair types and face shapes," said master hairstylist Edward Tricomi [14] of Warren Tricomi Salons. "This cut features back strands resting on the nape of your neck with the face-framing strands dipping an extra inch or two until they kiss your collarbone — an edgy yet sophisticated hairstyle, all at the same time."

Fall 2020 Haircut Trend: Textured Layers With Bangs

The common denominator between this trend and the recent resurgence of the shag haircut [15] is simple: layers. This fall, Sims predicts, we'll be seeing plenty of them. "We'll see natural textures cut into layers with a textured fringe — that cut looks great at all times," he said. It's also easy to style: "The grow-out on it is cool as well. This cut screams volume, carefree, and easy."
