Feeling overwhelmed with the fast-paced nature of beauty trends? You're not the only one. With every season, we're introduced to endless trends that populate our social media feeds; making it challenging to differentiate the ones that deserve your attention from those that aren't worth your while. To save your thumbs and eyes from from endless scrolling, we've combed through hundreds of the biggest fall trends and identified the 15 styles, cuts, and colors to keep an eye on (along with a few products hairstylists and beauty editors are raving about).
If that captures your interest, you'll want to keep scrolling and take screenshots for your next trip to the salon or beauty supplier. Don't worry about running out of ideas—there's more than enough inspiration ahead to carry us through the next couple of months and well into winter.
1. Hair Color Trends
Butterscotch blonde fuses rich caramel and light gold tones; borrowing from brown sugar and buttery blonde. Flattering on all skin tones, it's a sneaky way to add some warmth back to your post-summer skin and striking dimension to your strands.
Another shade that the fashion crowd can't get enough of this fall is neutral brown. Blending gold and ash tones for a hair color that's as warm as it is cool, it's the answer to all your fall hair color woes as we head into the cooler months.
Bronde (Brown Blonde)
Can't decide if you'd like to go brown or blonde for fall? You don't have to pick between the two. Shades of "bronde" are in high demand; striking the balance between the warmth of brown with eye-catching hints of blond to brighten the face.
2. Haircut Trends

Spotted on celebrities from Wednesday's Jenna Ortega to songbird Billie Eilish, the low maintenance hush cut is the ideal option for anyone looking to combine subtle, face-framing layers with wispy bangs; balancing length and volume.

The butterfly cut combines short and wispy face-framing layers with longer cascading layers falling below the shoulders. Effectively removing weight and not length, this haircut will give your strands movement reminiscent of a butterfly fluttering its wings.
Lob (Long Bob)
If you, like me, are notoriously indecisive when it comes to hair length; it may be time to try a bob with a little length to it á la Laura Harrier in the shot above. Ideal for all hair textures and face shapes, the lob is also by far one of the most versatile of the trending haircuts this season.

For so long, we've seen the French bob dominate the fashion world but this fall, we're seeing a shift towards full-bodied and bouncy bobs. Long and layered, this cut grazes the base of the neck but features major internal layers and texture no matter your hair type or texture.

The hot word for fall is texture and the fashion crowd is adding it wherever the can for some extra intrigue. Yara Shahidi was captured in Paris last month wearing her hair slicked back into a gorgeous braided bun that was almost chignon-like.

Sleek hairstyles are in year-round, but they're especially big this season thanks to the likes of models Jasmine Tookes and Bella Hadid. Clean-looking, bouncy ponytails and chic buns will always be winners in our book.
4. Hair Accessory Trends
Delicate Hair Bows
Sporty headbands are the perfect finishing touch to any hairstyle, whether you're getting ready to be on-the-go or attending Paris Fashion Week's Mugler S/S 24 show like model Barbara Palvin last month.
