The ice queen look just lost its reign, according to celebrity hairstylist Riawna Capri. "We’re looking for more dimension," she says of blonde for fall. "Some low-lights and utilizing your natural base." Instead of platinum, Capri says to expect more golden, honey-toned blondes.
"The secret to having a young and modern short haircut is having your front pieces being as long as they can be," Capri says. Having longer pieces in the front and a slight angle is what really makes all these bobs worn by stars like Taraji P. Henson and Margot Robbie so enviable. "What really sets a short haircut apart from a soccer mom is having those longer bits in front."
It sounds cliché, but it's so true. "When you’re going to do the pixie, it all comes down to confidence. If you feel confident, you can rock a pixie," says Capri.
After you remind yourself that you can own the bold cut, try a lengthier style similar to Ruby Rose. "She is super into texture and bringing it all forward," she says of Rose.
Wispy, Curtain Bangs
"I definitely think that bangs will be popping back out for fall," Capri says. If you're feeling like a change but don't want to lose your length, go for a wispy, side-swept, Brigitte Bardot-like fringe style. They're popularly nicknamed "curtain bangs," and you can also look to Camila Cabello for inspiration before to big chop.
"They’re so noncommittal and give you just amount of change. If you don’t like it, you can grow it out within a month," Capri says.
Ombré is way out, according to Capri. Instead of just making the lengths of your hair lighter, she says to concentrate on adding warmth from root to tip. This creates a super natural, sun-kissed look.
Soft Blunt Cuts
"I think as far as cuts go, we’re looking more at a stronger line and a more bold line," Capri notes. "I like to call it a soft blunt line." Consider it the opposite of a super piece-y, shattered, layered look. Nina Dobrev's long bob is your best example.
The New Long Cut
Long hair isn't going anywhere, for the record. However, Capri says that long haircuts will focus more on a clean line and structure, rather than having wispy, piece-y ends. Jennifer Garner's haircut fits the bill because it has plenty of length, but it looks strong, shiny, and healthy.
