The Fall Hair Inspiration You Need In Your Life

So long, sweet summer.

We'll miss your lazy days spent lounging by the pool, but there are so many things we're excited about as fall approaches. One of them? The chance to change up our summer 'do. If you're in need of a little fall hair inspo, no worries. We've got you covered. Here are a few perfect cuts and colors to carry you through cooler temperatures:

If you're not ready to commit to bangs yet (you have to be REALLY sure, you know?) this long, side-swept look is a great pick for autumn. Test the waters, see how it goes, then maybe by winter time you'll be ready for a more decisive chop.

We're in love with this color for fall. It's a rich brunette with just a hint of red. It looks perfectly natural, and it's low maintenance enough that you wouldn't find yourself at the salon every three weeks trying to maintain it.

A blunt bob is the perfect way to mix things up as the seasons change. It's great for both straight and wavy hair, so regardless of what your locks' natural texture might be, this 'do will work for you.

This subtle balayage is perfect if you want to change up your color for fall, but don't want to go too bold. It's warm and soft, and looks great with many different skin tones.

When you want to keep your highlights but need to tone the color down for fall, we love this look. It's beautifully blended but still bright and sunny.

Take these pictures with you next time you're headed to the hair salon and you'll be sure to get a look you're proud to rock throughout the fall.
