As someone nicknamed “the blonde girl with a ponytail” in elementary school and middle school, I know a thing or two about unshakeable hair ruts. In fact, I spend about 90% of my life with my hair (still) styled in a ponytail, and so I feel really crazy, i will go for a topknot or a braid. Then yes. In a way, I’m selfishly writing this article as a self-help guide to my less adventurous hairstyle aesthetic. Fall is just around the corner, and there’s no better time to step up a gear or change your beauty mode than a change of season.
Having said that, I want to be realistic. I definitely don’t want to spend more than 10 or 15 minutes on my hair, and given the nature of 2020, I can’t be bothered with over-the-top looks. (My midlife lifestyle just doesn’t feel like a super splashy hairstyle is worth the time, effort, or the inevitable arm pain.) However, even though my styling hands are rather incompetent, I do. make enjoy the time spent playing and experimenting with my favorite hair products and styling tools, and I always want to look put together when making a video call or visiting friends and family.
Some effortless fall hairstyle inspiration was definitely in order, so after searching the internet for more hours than I would like to admit, I rounded up 10 quintessential fall hairstyles that will totally support you this season. (They are so easy!) Adjust or personalize them however you want, but hopefully they will fend off some new excitement and creativity. Continue scrolling!
