Hollywood hair: Find your favorite fall style

Whether you love a short pixie or long, luxurious lengths, the key look for hair this fall is “lived in.”

Good news, ladies. You can stop washing your hair as often. Well, that’s if you want to organically achieve the tousled, lived-in styles that are all the rage in Hollywood.

In fact, many experts recommend you don’t wash your hair everyday, and today’s styles support that recommendation. Whether you want to go with a cute little pixie cut like Halle Berry or a long, full, sexy look like Kim Kardashian, the looks are loose, unstructured and lived-in.

We chose some of Hollywood’s favorite and most glamorous actresses and asked local hairstylists how to achieve the looks. We talked to Adrian Crawford, color director and manager at DK Salon, and LaShanda Willis and Erika Henderson, stylists at JC’s Funky Hair Ranch in Edmond.

“All these styles look lived in,” Crawford said. “Nothing is perfect, nothing is fixed. It’s all very natural, very relaxed. So if you have some frizz, if you have something disconnected, that’s almost encouraged, because it looks more lived in, more like, ‘I just got out of the beach and I’m glamorous and this is awesome.’”

The Pixie

Halle Berry has long had short locks, but this season, she’s dumped the angular cut for a softer, more natural look. Willis said first give the hair a blowout, completely straight, using a relaxing serum and a moisturizer. Using a round-edge iron, pull sections into smooth, long curls all the way to the ends. Finish the look with a high-shine wax to separate the curls and hold them in place.

The Lob

The Lob, or long bob, is super popular in Hollywood, high schools and business offices this fall because it’s put together without looking too fussy. It’s an easy style to maintain and has a bit of edge when you go asymmetrical, with “dropouts” that add accent and interest.

Crawford said this style is very popular among women with long hair who want to go shorter but don’t want to take the plunge and go pixie.

Try a salt or sugar spray and some root-boosting mousse with this look.
