Here are eight, effortless hair style ideas and tutorials for every fall event!

Face-Framing Ponytail

What’s new: The traditional pony gets an upgrade with volume and soft curls.

How to do it:

    1. Apply a flexible, body-building styling jelly to the roots of damp hair, followed by a nourishing smoothing milk to the mid-lengths and ends.

    2. Beginning at the nape, blow dry using a large, round brush.

    3. Once hair is dry, create loose waves with a large-barrel curling iron.

    4. Create a center part from the front hairline to the high point of the head, leaving the sides loose.

    5. Isolate the top/crown section and tease subsections to create height.

    6. Create a ponytail just above the nape and secure with an elastic. Hide the elastic by wrapping a small strand of hair around the base.

    7. Incorporate the crown section into the ponytail and pin it into place.

    8. Direct the sides over the ears and pin them into the ponytail. Allow a few pieces to fall free in order to frame the face.

Side-Swept Corkscrew Curls

What’s new: This fall, simplicity means embracing your natural texture.

How to do it:

    1. Cleanse and condition hair, and detangle with a wide-tooth comb. (Do not comb curly hair once it is dry.) Apply a butter-enriched hair care cream to control the texture.

    2. Begin at the front and apply smoothing milk section-by-section, raking the product through with your fingers for even distribution. Apply to all sections.

    3. Apply styling butter in the same manner.

    4. As your hair air dries. Flip your hair up and back, without using your fingers, to loosen the curl and add volume.

    5. Gently sweep all but a few side tendrils to one side, taking care not to disturb the curl pattern.


Deep-Parted Side Waves

What’s new: Lazy waves get an update with a deep side part.

How to do it:

    1. On clean, damp hair, apply styling jelly  to the scalp area for body, followed by texturizing spray on the mid-lengths and ends.

    2. Using your fingers and a blow dryer, rough dry your hair by twisting vertical sections away from your face, creating large spiral patterns.

    3. When your hair is about 80 percent dry, continue twisting and drying, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends to create natural texture and movement.

    4. When your hair is completely dry, wrap large sections around a large barrel curling iron. Direct the right side behind your ear.

    5. When the curls cool, pull down on the ends to elongate and separate.


Textured Blow-Out

What’s new: Texturizing the mid-lengths and ends give this long, layered blowout modern movement and definition.

How to do it:

    1. Distribute styling jelly through clean, damp hair with a wide tooth comb for body and lift.

    2. Beginning at the nape, divide hair into vertical subsections. Blow-dry each section with a large round brush, using a twisting motion through the mid-lengths and ends before releasing the hair.

    3. Work up the sides and through the top to complete the blowout.

    4. When the hair is dry, spray the ends with texturizing spray, and brush through to create movement and encourage separation and texture.


Messy Half Bun

What’s new: The summer staple--the messy bun--gets sexier for fall with this half up, half down evolution.

How to do it:

    1. Mist damp hair with texturizing spray

    2. Encourage the formation of your hair’s natural texture by scrunching the lengths as you blow-dry.

    3. Create a center part from the front hairline to the crown, and gather the top and sides into a high, loose knot. Leave the back section loose to cascade and fall naturally.

    4. Pin the topknot in place.

    5. Twist the sides up and toward the back and pin them just below the topknot.

    6. Mist with frizz control spray to manage frizz and increase natural-looking shine.




Smooth/Wavy Blowout

What’s new: Lots of curl and movement on the ends add a new twist to a smooth blowout.

How to do it:

    1. Apply styling milk to damp hair and blow dry with a round brush. Work up from the nape, and on each section, dry the scalp area first, then the mid-lengths, then the ends.

    2. With a medium barrel curling iron, roll subsections of hair under in the back. Clip each curl in place.

    3. Roll the side sections away from the face and clip each curl in place.

    4. Roll the top sections back, beginning each curl slightly off of the scalp. Clip each curl in place.

    5. When all curls are cool, release the clips.

    6. Brush through hair with a cushioned styling brush to blend.

    7. Apply styling butter to the ends to prevent frizz, and add definition and softness.




Pinned-Up Coils

What’s new: Tight curls get the royal treatment with a polished, frizz-free upstyle.

How to do it:

    1. Cleanse and condition hair, and detangle with a wide-tooth comb. (Do not comb curly hair once it is dry.) Apply a butter-enriched hair care cream to control the texture.

    2. Apply smoothing milk to damp hair, and rake it through section-by-section with your fingers for even distribution.

    3. Layer styling butter over the previous product to promote curl definition and eliminate flyaways.

    4. Allow hair to air dry. Refrain from touching your curls while your hair is drying.

    5. Gather your hair gently into a casual upstyle, taking care to leave curls undisturbed.

    6. Use hairpins and bobby pins to lift and pin sections into an asymmetrical shape. Allow a few lose tendrils to frame your face and nape.

    7. Mist with texturizing styling spray to encourage volume and texture.


Low, Twisted Knots

What’s new: You’ll triple the cute factor of a low, messy bun with three low, messy buns!

How to do it:

    1. Mist damp hair with texturizing spray.

    2. Blow dry hair with a round brush, directing the nozzle downward to encourage shine.

    3. Once hair is dry, direct it back with a cushioned styling brush, and create three ponytails at the nape. Secure each with an elastic band.

    4. Twist each ponytail into a loose coil and pin into place.

    5. Release a few strands around the face and use a curling iron on these sections to create soft movement. Seal the ends with a small amount of styling butter.
