Autumn Hair Trend Predictions

Autumn hair trend predictions

The autumn season is finally here and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a new hairstyle – with low ponytails, twisted knots and smoky grey all topping the bill.

We’ve teamed up with online hair and beauty retailer and together we have looked into the hair trend predictions for this coming season and picked out the styles, cuts and colours to rock this autumn.

From low ponytails and distressed knots to smoky pastel greys and autumnal reds, there’s a range of trends to pick from that will take you right through to the New Year.

Say goodbye to beach boho waves and warm honey tones – this autumn is all about dark auburn colours and distressed styles.

Also predicted as big autumn hair trends are hair embellishments, including sparkly clips and bejazzled bands, dark and sleek gothic styles and the perfect mix of blonde and brown – the bronde colour.

Embellished hair for Autumn 2016

Joanne Dodds, from, told us: “The summer season has come to an end and we’re now heading into autumn – which means a new style update for your hair and beauty.

“We’ve looked at the catwalk shows and our favourite celebrity style icons and predicted this year’s most popular autumn hair trends.

“There’s a look and style to suit every occasion – whether you’re heading outdoors wrapped in your scarf and boots or heading off to a Halloween party.”

Here are this year’s top predicted autumn hair trends:

1.    All about the knots

Say goodbye to summer plaits and braids – the new season is all about distressed and casual knots. Simply choose between a high or low style and twist your hair into a relaxed and loose bun with straying ends.

2.    Embellishment

This look would be perfect for any autumn parties you have booked in the diary. The catwalk shows were filled with models wearing embellished headwear, including jewelled velvet bands and statement sequin clips. Keep your outfit low-key to make sure all eyes are on your hairstyle.

3.    Autumnal tones

There’s no better way to celebrate the autumn season than with a classic autumn hair colour. Turn your back to ashy tones and look for deep auburn reds or even dark rosy pinks.

4.    Gothic and glossy

One of the main events during the autumn season is of course Halloween, and that means donning your best spooky styles. How about adding the fashion factor to your fancy dress this year and sporting one of the season’s best trends – the gothic and glossy look. Make sure your hair is looking dark and mysterious, and style into a sleek side-parted bun finished with glossy styling spray.

5.    Low ponytails

If you’re looking for an easy alternative to the top knot, try a relaxed low ponytail for a day in the office or weekend outdoors. Without losing your parting, tie your hair into a low ponytail with a thin band. For added style, take a loose strand from the back of your head and twist around the bunch, covering the band.

6.    Smoky grey

Grey has never been more stylish and fashion fans have already been spotted trying out this daring hair colour. For the best shade, opt for a light smoky colour that will match any of your autumn outfits.

7.    Bronde

If you don’t fancy a major hair colour change but are in need of a revamp, then you’ll be happy to know that ‘bronde’ is back. As seen sported by celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Cheryl Cole and Caroline Flack, it describes that stylish hair colour that’s halfway between blonde and brown. Think dark blonde or light textured brown and you’re there.
