As the fall season approaches, many will consider selecting a new hair routine for the cooler season. During the summer months, many African American women considered options that included curly hairstyles, loose waves and natural styles. But, for the cooler months, they may want a different style to coordinate with new fall fashions or more protective styles to battle the elements.
If African American women are seeking to change or ad some spice to their looks, then there are lots of option for the 2013 fall season. Last year, natural hair gained quite a bit of exposure. While natural hair has become more mainstream, if it is not your preferred choice, there are still lots of available options. They range from dipped dyed hair to ombre colored tresses and from chick buns to sweeping updos.
For those who prefer natural hair, Senegalese twists, Havana twists, and box braids are still very trendy. And, there are those choosing to protect their hair with these popular hairstyles. There also are other protective styles that feature your ends being completed and tucked in or tucked under. They are great ideas if you are trying to grow your hair out or trying to retain or add hair length.
Chic and modern continue to be options this season. Styling your hair in chic bobs or celebrity-inspired weaves, updos and pixie cuts are preferred hairstyles for some.
While braided hairstyles and protecting your hair are great options for the fall season, you still may want to wear your hair out. Consider relaxed hair, but don’t forget weaves, wigs, and hair color. Color according to most stylist is the current trend. You can spice things up with burnished brown hues that will leave you looking fabulous and fierce this fall season.
Whatever you decide to do with your hair this season, it doesn’t matter if you sport a hairstyle that is long and relaxed, natural, or short, just have fun.
