The choppy cut is a 2021 hair trend here to stay. Asymmetrical or blunt, choppy layers can be styled depending on your desired look and hair type. This edgy fall hairstyle is at the height of versatility, expect oodles of volume, definition, and movement irrespective of length. Through spring and summer, the appeal of this edgy cut is its low maintenance. Simply roll out of bed, add some texturizing spray and you’re ready to slay.
Grown out fringes, or Waft Fringes as they’re affectionately known, are defined by dramatic length - with a short inner centre - that graduates downwards at the sides of the face. Think Jenna Coleman’s ’70s hair in BBC drama The Serpent, but a lot less ‘murder accomplice’. This fall hairstyle celebrates the retro resurgence of other 70s fashion trends. Watch this space.

The staple of this style is choppy, shaggy layers with a mullet-esque fringe at the front. Expect dishevelled volume at the top which dramatically diminishes at the lengths. An effortlessly-cool-vibe makes this fall hairstyle a wonderfully wild staple.

Maybe after the long locks of summer, you’re in the mood to go short. Enter the Bob! Bobs may seem a little daunting at first, but with the right stylist and execution they can grab the attention of a room with virtually no effort on your part. There’s a reason Bobs are timeless.
For a new chop that sweeps your roll neck perfectly, try the Crop Bob. "Cut short, cute and tight into the neck with a blunt fringe, the beauty is you can wear them dead straight and glass-like or soften them up with a loose wave” explains top LA hair stylist, Sal Salcedo.

70s style has dominated global fashion trends over 2021. Garish retro swirl and psychedelic floral prints have dominated our Instagram feeds, and retro hair trends are no different. Few haircuts are as iconic as Farrah Fawcett's ’70s flip. TikTok has led a resurgence of these flipped, voluminous flicks. Expect to see contemporary variations cropping up this Fall.
Coined 90s supermodel hair for its star-studded history - think Claudia Schiffer back in her prime – the 90s blowout champions soft, shiny locks with no shortage of volume. It's classy, classic, and blatantly high maintenance; you’re going to want to grab your blow-dryer and rollers for this fall hairstyle. For maximum volume, try a full set of hair extensions for the y2k approved look.
"The '90s was all about a natural body and bounce without looking overdone or too structured," explains the Franck Provost team, Australia's number one rated hair salon. "Stay away from words like flat and smooth. The more volume the better."
Curtain bangs are amazing for any face shape; if cut right they beautifully frame your face and emphasise your best features. Top tip: accompany your new bangs with highlights that compliment your eye color. This way, that new face glow will be the star of the show.
