From classic remakes to geometric haircuts to gravity-defying updos, next season's hottest hair trends are getting us all fired up for fall. If you're wondering which to try first, here's a quick guide on how to recreate our favorite fall runway looks!
Unfussy wash-and-wear 'dos are ultimately the spirit of summer, but who says you can't carry them over this fall? Forget everything you know about mimicking the natural look. To get this look, all you need is a good purifying shampoo to rid your hair of product buildup and excess oil that weigh it down. If you have naturally fine hair, use a dry shampoo to give your hair a little lift and texture.

We've seen several ponytail variations, but we like the elegance and grace that sleek ponytails bring to the table. It looks smart, sophisticated and well put together. To master the polished look, spritz strands with vitamin-rich argan oil. Then, using a fine-toothed comb, part your hair and gather the ends in a low ponytail. Finish by wrapping the elastic with the outermost section of your tail. You can also use a straightening iron to refine your tail end.

The 60s-inspired bouffant is back on the radar! It may seem over the top and a little too dressy for everyday wear, but with the right accents, you can make it look fun, casual and modern. It's also easier to replicate than it looks. Start by applying liberal amounts of hairspray on wet hair, and then, blow dry your hair with a large round brush. Tease small sections of hair at the crown and then gently smooth out the top layer with a brush. Give this dramatic 'do a fresh take by wearing a solid headband or tying it at the ends.

Anyone who wants to look sporty, cool and thrill-seeking should definitely give this hairstyle a shot. The best thing about this look is that there's no perfect way to do it—and therefore, there's no one else out there who can replicate your exact same style. Start by applying liberal amounts of mousse on your hair. Tease hair from nape to crown, and then tie up the middle section of your hair to a messy knot. Comb back loose hair with a styling wax, or blow dry loose strands while spritzing hairspray.

Linear, face-framing bangs add a futuristic twist to any haircut. However, for geometric cuts to work, hair has to be sleek, shiny and frizz- and flyaway-free. Apply a heat-protecting spray to safeguard your strands before ironing out your hair. Finish with a leave-in conditioner or a shine-enhancing spray.
