Here are some of my newest favorite hair trends for fall! 
Perfect for waking up late and throwing together your half-dried bed head! 

The Side Twist 

The Tip:
Capture the romantic style at Sophie Theallet's fall show by starting with a volumizing cream or spray, then adding a dry shampoo to create a matte texture. Next, backcomb the hair at the top of the head, then separate into top and bottom sections in back. Secure the top section loosely with a ponytail holder, then divide the bottom into two sections. Twist the right section around the ponytail (over to the left side) and secure with bobby pins, then twist the left bottom section over the ponytail and secure with bobby-pins. Finish with hairspray. For extra volume, tease both left and right bottom sections before twisting and pinning.

The Loose Knot
The Tip: 
Reconstruct the soft, feminine bun at Jason Wu by applying a glossing straightener or cream to damp hair then blow-dry with a flat brush. Pull hair into a loose ponytail at the nape of the neck. Wrap a long bungee elastic around the ponytail, creating a criss-cross pattern from top to bottom, then twist into a flat chignon and secure with bobby-pins. Finish with hairspray.

The Toosie Roll

The Tip: 
An offshoot of the Sophie Theallet side twist, this look is perfect for shoulder or chin-length hair. Use a volumizing or thickening spray, and tease your hair at the roots. Pull the upper half of the hair back and secure into a loose ponytail. Roll the ponytail up toward the ponytail holder and secure with bobby-pins. Spray with a strong hold hairspray.
