5 Fashionable Hairstyles to Brighten Autumn

October 29, 2020 3 min read

When it comes to the top autumn hairstyle trends of 2020, there really is something for everyone. From a relaxed, laissez-faire look that requires minimal effort (so you can spend a few extra minutes in bed on those cold mornings) to a chic, modern up-do,  this list will help you see out the remainder of the year in style

1. The modern shag haircut


The modern shag haircut makes a reappearance for autumn 2020. Taking inspiration from 70s icons like Farrah Fawcett and Joan Jett, the modern shag is low maintenance and incredibly versatile. Ideal for adding more movement to your look whilst maintaining your hair’s length, ask your hairdresser for long choppy layers and feathering around the face. 

Top tip: To create more volume and body, consider fitting a few of our 100% human hair extensions, which can be styled with heat tools to create undone, slept-in waves.

2: Accessories



Glitzy clips, soft ribbons and organza scrunchies were seen across the catwalks for autumn. Chanel used dreamy oversized black bows in its models' hair, while Brandon Maxwell adorned sleek ponytails with long silk scarfs. It’s no surprise that this trend has already gained traction in real life; you’ll feel instantly pulled-together and chic with the addition of a simple bow or pearl-encrusted clip. 

Top tip: Follow in the footsteps of Chanel by wrapping a long piece of silk around the base of your ponytail, bow at the top and secure with grips for added hold on blustery days. Or for an even quicker fix, many hair bows now come ready-made with a slide-in grip attached.

3: Low ponytails

Nothing feels more chic than a glossy, low ponytail. Seen at Valentino, Elie Saab and Oscar de la Renta to name just a few, this simple yet elegant style is a key Autumn 2020 hair trend. Appropriate for a multitude of occasions, the low ponytail can be achieved in minutes and is incredibly flattering.

4: The blunt fringe

The blunt fringe is back for Autumn 2020 and for good reason. This ultra-convenient style not only allows you to look ultra stylish, but has a chic appeal that suits a large variety of face shapes and hair types. The perfect way to give hair a healthy refresh, your hairdresser will be able to recommend the ideal length to flatter your features.

5: Big blow dry

While the blow dry will never go out of fashion, it has been thrust back onto the Autumn 2020 hair trend list thanks to Lavin’s A/W 2020/21 catwalk show.  Big, shiny blow dries were the order of the day at the fashion show and it’s being translated into real life thanks to a hoard of new helpful heat-styling tools entering the market. Whether you use a handy hot brush, large barrel tongs or add extra volume with rollers, the key is; bouncier is better. 

Top tip: Our  Fibre Flicky One Piece  makes mastering the blow dry a breeze. Luxuriously long and filled with volume, this clip-in extension has a natural flick that looks like you’ve just stepped out of the salon.
