Maybe it’s the current heatwave or the fact that we’re bored of wearing shorts and flip flops, but we officially can’t wait for fall. While we’re not quite ready for pumpkin spice lattes and fall hair colors, we’re already anticipating all of the new and exciting trends 2020 has to offer. If you’re anything like us, you like to get the jump on knowing seasonal hair trends ahead of time. After all, you’ll want to secure your salon appointment before they book up! That’s we’re rounding up our list of fall hair trends a bit early this year.

From vibrant neon hair colors to oversized hair accessories, we’re sounding off on the 12 fall hair trends we’re predicting will be huge in 2020.

The Best Fall 2020 Hair Trends To Try

All-Over Neon

At the beginning of 2020, we predicted that this year would be all about embracing your creative, playful side. While this year hasn’t been what we expected, we’re still noticing tons of colorful hair inspiration. If you’re looking to start the fall season with a bang, ask your colorist for an on-trend neon hair color.

If you’re opting for a vibrant neon shade, you’ll need a shampoo and conditioner system like Matrix Total Results Keep Me Vivid Shampoo and Conditioner. This system is formulated to keep high-maintenance hair colors from fading.

Vibrant Accents

We get it: A full head of neon hair isn’t for everyone. If you’re looking to make an impact with half the maintenance, however, ask your colorist for vibrant accents. We love the look of face-framing neon highlights paired with a dark base color.

Oversized Organza Scrunchies

Come autumn, we’re normally stocking up on as many velvet hair accessories as we could find, but this year, oversized organza scrunchies are taking their place. This sheer, lightweight fabric makes for a delicate accent to any fall hairstyle.

Acetate Barrettes

Whether you stack them, mix and match them, or use them to style your middle part, acetate barrettes will be everywhere this fall—so we recommend adding a few to your styling routine.

Warm-Toned Blonde

Blondes: It’s time to trade in that summertime platinum for a toned-down, warm shade. From honey to golden, there are so many on-trend shades that are perfect for your fall color change. Not to mention: A warm-toned blonde will accentuate that tan you’ve been working on all summer.

Keep your blonde looking vibrant and shiny all season long with a shampoo and conditioner system like L'Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Blondifier Illuminating Shampoo and Conditioner.

Visible Roots

If you’ve been stuck home awaiting your salon’s reopening, we have good news: Visible roots are on-trend for fall 2020. If you’re looking to go super low maintenance with your color this autumn, ask your colorist for smoked-out roots.

Headbands are a staple hair accessory year after year, so it’s no surprise they made our 2020 list. From padded velvet headbands to pearl-embellished variations, you can’t go wrong with adding a few different styles to your collection.

Shag Haircuts

When it comes to fall 2020 haircut trends, we have three words for you: messy, textured, and layered. Shaggy haircuts will be huge for fall 2020 and the best part? They’re super easy to style. Simply apply a few spritzes of texturizing spray like Redken Triple Dry 15 Dry Texture Finishing Spray throughout your mane and you’ll be ready to go.

Textured Ponytails

Fall 2020 is all about embracing your natural texture, and if you have natural ringlets, what better way to do that then with a slicked-back ponytail? Use a hair gel like Mizani True Textures Perfect Coil Oil Gel to slick back the hair around your crown while leaving the loose hair from your ponytail natural.

Caramel Highlights

Is anyone surprised? While trends come and go, caramel highlights are a fall hair trend we predict will remain year after year.

Mini Braids

This fall, don't stress over intricate braided hairstyles. A mini three-strand accent braid is all you need to make an impact.

Heat-Free Waves

Who says effortless beach waves are exclusively for summer? From Tik Tok hacks to overnight techniques, there are so many ways to achieve heat-free waves any time of year. Give your mane a break from hot tools this fall and try heat-free waves instead. Pick up a product like Pureology Style + Protect Beach Waves Sugar Spray to create soft, tousled waves with just a few spritzes.
