Back to school is here and although we know it can be sad to leave behind long beach days and nights without homework, it’s also a great time to try out a new look. Here are some cuts and styles we love for the fall:

Go Wild with Color

Think outside the blonde highlights. Instead, opt for a bold color that will really exhibit your personality. Purple and blue are “of the moment” hair colors that we just love, but we can basically do any color of the rainbow, too:

Badass Braids

We’re loving this braid (with mermaid color, no less!) for a fresh way to give your look some edge. Balayaged hair looks amazing in braids since it allows people to see all the facets of your color. Try a side fishtail braid like this one for a great class-to-date night look.

Start with a Bang

It’s probably the most asked stylist question of all time: “Do you think I can pull off bangs?” There are different techniques for cutting bangs for every kind of hair type and face shape (wispy, straight, thick, side-swept), so don’t be afraid to experiment!

If Back to School is crazy (because of your kids or your studies), maybe you want to opt for something that takes less thought and upkeep. In that case, give your hair the chop! Simply dry (in a snap), add some product and go:
