Fall is here! In just a few weeks, trees will be painted with color, apple and pumpkin fields will be filled with children and families and bulky sweaters will find their way back into our closets.
Our curls may also enjoy the cooler temperatures and less humid conditions. They may also find themselves going through a “fall transition.” As we experiment and find a new look or color for the autumn season, we also have an opportunity to try out some new fall hair accessories. Luckily, this season, the patterns and colors are terrific and truly“back to nature.”
Scarves & Headbands
Leopard and snakeskin prints are everywhere this season, including headbands and scarves. Scarves can be worn to keep curls in place when you leave the house and when you’re off to work. You can then wrap your scarf around your neck as an accessory once you’re in your office or even use it as a belt. If you want to get creative scarves can be very versatile. You can visit just about any store and find a number of scarves in grey, brown, black, even red or pink, snakeskin and leopard prints — the faux kind, of course. These prints are also on clips of just about any size, which can highlight a new haircolor or style for the fall.

Flowers are still trending into the fall season, but in deeper shades of wine, chocolate and plum. Felt flowers are also popular for fall. You can even make your own accessories by adding flowers to a headband, scarf, head wrap or clip with a hot glue gun. It’s easy to find flowers of just about every size and material in craft and dollar stores. Add a pin to the back of the flowers to make your accessory even more versatile so it can go from your hair to a blazer lapel, a bracelet or even a skirt!
