It ‘s finally September, but we all know that the first cool days are still a few weeks off. But even the high temperature didn’t stop Alexa Chung from getting ahead on fall style last week. Alexa was spotted rocking an updated do of artfully blended layers, and neatly trimmed ends. Her hair was a great blend of beach wave and windswept texture, a glorious style for September. Also emphasizing her great fall appeal was her fuzzy sweater / maxi skirt combo and her makeup, a great pairing of neutral shadows and rosy nude lipstick. So while you still have to wait a few more weeks to rock your turtlenecks, it’s a great time to experiment with autumn hair and warm color palettes.

man bun

It may not be new, but I have a hunch the man bun is coming back bigger than ever. With so much gender-bending and androgyny already seen on this year’s runway, the man bun is bound to evolve and grow, going from a trend to a staple. The style reinforces the masculinity of long hair for men, and paired with a little or a lot of scruff and a devil-may-care attitude, it’s sure to dominate 2015. So gentlemen, if you have the length but lack direction, click through to style notes for some inspiration. Just don’t forget the beard. –– Michelle Rotbart

If there’s one word to summarize all up the emerging trends for 2015, it’s ‘unfussy.’ Clothing, hair, and makeup all feel a little simpler, paired down, relaxed. When it comes to styling this means less time spent with heat tools and less polished results. The looks shown here are a perfect example of this sort of simplicity. By using a crimper on random sections you’ll add interest and volume, but without creating a big, wild mess. The look is playful, not overwrought. Click the style notes for steps. –– Laura Martin

Holographic by Ashley Kowalsky and Zach Norman, two leading colorists at ARROJO NYC, blends the trendsetting art of hair painting with the vanguard art of air brushing, which uses compressed air to apply color in tailored gradients, creating light intensity and illumination that drifts with the shape of the style. The technique enables even more creative color creations and placements, which is exemplified by this collection. See all the images in the notes.

edgy

Say “edgy haircut, please” to your stylist and you may leave the salon crying and with only half of your hair left. To some, edgy means safely rebellious; to others, a shaved head and a tattooed face. Knowing just what kind of edgy you really mean and what suits you best can make all the difference to your hair happiness. The details of these pictured styles are great if you want to punch up your look a bit.  Find our suggestions for addingsome spark to your appearance in the notes. –– Kelly Rowe
