How to Create 3 Top Hair Looks for Fall With the Chicest Accessories

So sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but summer is on its last sun-kissed leg. Slowly but surely, temperatures will start to drop, the humidity will ease, and we'll brush the dust off our favorite pairs of seasonal boots and denim, which, depending on how much summer style fatigue you have, might be a blessing in disguise. Another burgeoning perk? A fresh onslaught of fall hair trends to replace your current rotation of messy buns, high ponytails, and beachy salt-crusted braids.  

To get the official lowdown on all of the coolest fall hair trends our favorite celebrities and models will be wearing this coming September through December, we asked the industry's leading hair queen, Justine Marjan, for her expert predictions. As the mastermind behind Instagram's most copied hair trends, an obsession-worthy collab with hair accessory brand, Kitsch, and some of the most iconic manes in Hollywood (think Ashley Graham, Kim Kardashian West, and Ariana Grande), there's no one we trust more when it comes to the fate of our strands.

Here, Marjan shares three top hair trends for fall and how to accessorize them with some of her favorite accessories. Keep scrolling for the step-by-step breakdowns, photos, and product staples.
