Keep reading for step-by-step tutorials on 20 fall hairstyles that will no doubt upgrade your autumn beauty look!

FALL HAIRSTYLE #1: BASIC BRAID

There’s nothing wrong with keeping things simple. After all, your basic three-strand braid is a classic for a reason.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Air-Blown Texture Mist

Hair elastic

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Add texture

Give your hair more grip and body, and get a better braid by spritzing with a weightless texturizing spray.

Step 2: Section your hair

Split your hair into three even sections.

Step 3: Braid

Cross the right section over the center section, then cross the left section over the middle.

Step 4: Repeat

Switch back and forth between which section is crossing over the middle, repeating until you’ve braided all the way down the length of your hair.

Step 5: Secure

Obviously, you won’t want your braid to budge. Use an elastic to tie off the end.

FALL HAIRSTYLE #2: FRENCH BRAID

In search of a way to instantly dress up a daytime look? Look no further than this Parisian plait.

What you’ll need:

Hair brush

Hair elastic

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Brush your hair

Gently pull a brush through your hair to remove any tangles. Brush your hair backward, pushing all of it behind your head.

Step 2: Separate the top layer of hair

From the top of your head, gather a large chunk of hair and split it into three pieces.

Step 3: Braid

Before you can French, you’ll want to braid as if you’re creating a standard three-strand plait. Do this for just a few rows until you’ve successfully gotten the braid started.

Step 4: Add hair from below

Keep braiding almost exactly the same as you were, but begin introducing new pieces of hair. When you cross a section over the middle, add a small piece of hair from outside of the braid.

Step 5: Repeat

Continue to braid, adding more hair as you go, until you’ve run out of hair to incorporate.

Step 6: Finish the braid

Braid the rest of the way down without adding hair, just as you would normally.

Step 7: Secure

Add an elastic.

FALL HAIRSTYLE #3: FISHTAIL BRAID

Trust us; there’s nothing fishy about a fishtail braid. You’ll love this look, especially once you realize how unbelievably easy it actually is.

What you’ll need:

Hair elastic

L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hair Spray Extra Strong Hold

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Section your hair

Pull your hair to the side and over one shoulder, then split it into two sections.

Step 2: Braid

Add a piece of hair from the outside of one section to the inside of the other. Repeat this process, switching back and forth between both sections.

Step 3. Secure

Once you’ve reached the bottom of your braid, tie off the end.

Step 4. Mess it up

Braids don’t have to be prim and proper. Tug at sections to puff up the braid and create an undone look.

Step 5. Use hairspray

When you’re finished fussing with your fishtail, spray a strong hold hairspray to help ensure your look lasts.

FALL HAIRSTYLE #4: COTTON CANDY BUN

Forget about your go-to messy bun (temporarily, at least) in favor of this super-sweet bun hairstyle.

What you’ll need:

Fine-tooth comb

Hair tie

Hair spray

Bobby pins

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Smooth your hair into a high ponytail

Use a fine-tooth comb to smooth out any lumps and bumps before tying your ponytail off with a hair tie.

Step 2: Spray and tease your pony

Spray your ponytail with hairspray and use a fine-tooth comb to brush your hair down toward your elastic to create volume and a slightly rougher finish.

Step 3: Spin your cotton candy

Gently twist your messy teased pony into a bun and pin it in place, making sure that none of your pins are sticking out.

Step 4: Finish with hairspray

A quick spritz of hairspray will help lock your sweet ‘do in place.

FALL HAIRSTYLE #5: DUTCH BRAIDS

You may be long past your days of playing double Dutch on the playground, but you’re never too old for double Dutch braids (or a bit of jump roping). Double the braids, double the fun.

What you’ll need:

Comb

Hair elastics

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Comb your hair

Go through your strands with a comb to smooth them out, then create a middle part, dividing your hair into two sections.

Step 2: Split one section further

Focusing on just one side of your head, separate the top layer of the section, then split it into three equal pieces.

Step 3: Braid

Creating a Dutch braid is similar to basic and French braiding. The big difference is, instead of crossing over the middle strand, you cross under. Cross the right strand under the middle strand, and then bring the left strand under the middle to kick start the braid.

Step 4: Add hair from below

As you continue to braid, add small pieces of hair to each strand before crossing them under the middle section. Keep going until you’ve completed one braid, securing with a hair elastic.

Step 5: Repeat

Repeat on the other side of your head, so that you have two Dutch braids.

Step 6: Secure

You know the drill!

FALL HAIRSTYLE #6: CROWN BRAID

Tragically, we can’t all afford bejeweled tiaras and crowns. For something slightly more attainable, try rocking a crown braid to get your royal treatment fix.

What you’ll need:

Bobby pins

Hair gloss or serum

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Comb your hair

Use a comb to form a middle part and separate your hair into two sections, one on each side of your head.

Step 2: Braid

Following the basic braid tutorial (above), braid each of the two sections and secure the ends with small, clear elastics.

Step 3: Wrap and pin

Wrap one of the braids up and over your head, pinning the ends behind your ear.

Step 4: Repeat

Do the same with the other braid, pinning the two together to form your crown.

Step 5: Add shine

Crowns are meant to be sparkly, so you’ll want to finish things off with some shine. Spritz your hair with a glossing mist, focusing on the braids.

FALL HAIRSTYLE #7: WATERFALL BRAID

Spending time in bodies of water might be more of a summer activity, but it can serve as style inspiration all year long.

What you’ll need:

Heat protectant

Curling iron

Bobby pins

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Use heat protectant

Always spray a heat protectant onto your strands before using heat tools, being sure to coat your hair evenly.

Step 2: Curl your hair

Using a curling iron with a large barrel, put your hair in big, bouncy curls.

Step 3: Section your hair

You should be used to this step by now! After giving yourself a deep side part, split your hair into three sections.

Step 4: Braid

Begin with a basic braid, crossing the strands on the right and left over the middle.

Step 5: Add hair from below

Add a piece of hair into the right strand, then cross it over the middle.

Step 6: Let go of your first waterfall drop

Drop down the left strand and pick up a new section of hair, crossing it over the middle strand in place of the dropped strand.

Step 7: Repeat

Repeat steps five and six to create the waterfall effect until you’re happy with the length of your braid.

Step 8: Pin in place

To stop your masterful style from falling out, secure the end with interlocking bobby pins.

FALL HAIRSTYLE #8: DOUBLE TWIST FISHTAIL

If you love letting your long hair flow in all its glory but still want to keep it somewhat contained, try this half-up double fishtail hairstyle on for size. The best part is, it’s super-simple to create!

What you’ll need:

Comb

Bobby pins

Mini clear elastics

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Comb your hair

Take the time to detangle your tresses and only move on to the next step when your comb glides easily through your hair.

Step 2: Create your twists

Grab a small section of hair from each side of your head and twist it back toward your crown. Pin each twist in place at the back of your head, then grab two more sections from just below the first two. Twist those until you’ve completed your second round of twists, at which point you can secure all four twists with a mini clear elastic.

Step 3: Fishtail the ends of your twists

Using only the ends from your two sets of twists, fishtail all the way to the ends and secure with a clear mini elastic.

Step 4: Fluff up your braid and twists

To make your pretty hairstyle look especially whimsical, gently tug at your fishtail braid to add a little extra volume to each stitch. Then do the same to your twists for even more volume. Voila!

FALL HAIRSTYLE #9: BOHO LAYERED BRAID

We’re especially fond of this braided hairstyle since it incorporates multiple types of braids.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray

L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold

Comb

Bobby pins

Mini clear elastics

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Wash and detangle your hair

After you hop out of the shower, use a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle your hair.

Step 2: Add waves to your hair

While your hair is still damp, flip your head over and spritz every last strand with wave spray. After you’ve sprayed your hair, flip your head back over and scrunch it a few times to help create waves. Once your hair is fully dry, run your fingers through it to help loosen up your waves.

Step 3: Create a small twist

Grab a small section of hair on one side of your head an inch or two down from your part. Twist this section of hair back toward the crown of your head and pin it in place on the opposite side of your crown as if you’re wrapping it around your head, without going fully around to the other side. Before pinning your twist in place, hold it with one hand and use your other hand to fluff the twist up for a more undone feel.

Step 4: Repeat Step 3 on the other side of your head

Repeat step three on the opposite side, then repeat the back and forth process once more so that you have four twists altogether.

Step 5: Divide your remaining hair into three sections

To do this, split your remaining hair into two equal sections, a top and a bottom layer. Then, split the bottom section into two equal side-by-side sections so that you're left with three sections in total.

Step 6: Braid both bottom sections individually

Keep it simple and weave the bottom sections into traditional three-strand braids. Secure each braid with a clear mini elastic before gently tugging from the ends up to create a more voluminous set of braids.

Step 7: Fishtail the top section of hair

Split the remaining top section in two to create a fishtail braid. Once you reach the ends of your fishtail braid, secure it with a clear elastic before gently tugging at each weave to create a fuller-looking head of hair.

Step 8: Pin the fishtail braid on top of both traditional braids

Now that all of your braids are woven, it’s time to combine them into one gorgeous boho hairstyle. All you have to do is pull your two traditional braids together at the ends with a little bit of space between the lengths before pinning the top fishtail braid in the middle of the two. Once everything looks layered just right, pop a few bobby pins through the underside of the braids so that they’re hidden. Spray with hairspray, and you’re ready to show off your strands!

FALL HAIRSTYLE #10: DOUBLE DUTCH BRAID LOW BUN

One of the best ways to style day-two hair is with braids. So, instead of a super-quick messy bun, try this intricate braided bun for a fun update on your lazy girl autumn look.

What you’ll need:

Rat tail comb

Clear mini elastics

Bobby pins

Hairspray

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Part your hair down the middle

Drag the tail-end of your comb down the middle of your head to part your hair.

Step 2: Dutch braid each side of your hair

Starting at your hairline and moving straight back, weave inverted braids on each side of your part. Make sure to keep your braids focused at the top of your head, instead of on the sides. Once you reach your ends, tie your braids off with clear mini elastics. Gently pull apart your braids starting at your ends and working your way up to your hairline. When you reach the top of your head, pull mainly toward your part, so you don't create a wider appearance on the side of your head.

Step 3: Create a messy bun

Wrap your two fluffy braids around each other and pin them in place to create a messy woven bun. Pull out a few strands here and there to make it look a bit more effortless.

Step 4: Finish with hairspray

A quick spritz of hairspray will help your braids stay woven throughout all your autumn activities.

FALL HAIRSTYLE #11: FLIPPED BRAIDED BUN

Easy peasy and extra-pretty, too. This simple flipped braided bun is an update on one of your childhood faves, and now it’s perfect for your nine-to-five.

What you’ll need:

Hair tie

Clear mini elastic

Bobby pins

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Tie your hair into a loose low ponytail

Wrap your hair tie around your hair once or twice to create a loose but secure low pony.

Step 2: Flip your pony

Create a hole above the base of your pony, and just like when you were a little girl, flip your pony through the hole to get an inverted look.

Step 3: Braid your ends

Weave a simple three-strand braid down to your ends. Secure it with a clear mini elastic, then fluff it up a bit for a more voluminous look.

Step 4: Wrap your braid through

Pull your braid up through the space above your hair tie and pin it in place on the underside of your pony. Make sure that your bobby pins are hidden from view and you're done! Told you it was easy!

FALL HAIRSTYLE #12: MIX AND MATCH PONYTAIL BRAID

If you’re one of those girls who constantly has a hair tie on her wrist, waiting to (inevitably) pull up her hair, why not start with a more streamlined look right off the bat? Instead of pulling your hair into a sloppy pony midday, give this mix and match braid a try.

What you’ll need:

Rat tail comb

Bobby pins

Clear mini elastic

Hair spray

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Separate your hair into four sections

Using a rat tail comb, divide your hair into four sections. Leave the front two sections loose and combine the back two sections together into a high ponytail.

Step 2: Dutch braid the two front sections of hair

Split each front section of hair into three sections and begin weaving Dutch braids at your hairline. Continue adding hair into your Dutch braids until you reach the back of your head, at which point you should keep braiding one section all the way to the ends while combining the unbraided ends of the other side with your high ponytail to give it more volume.

Step 3: Wrap the braided section around the base of your pony

Before wrapping your ponytail, tighten it to boost the volume a bit. Then, take the fully-braided side and wrap it around the hair tie to conceal it. Use a bobby pin on the underside of the ponytail to tuck the ends in place.

Step 4: Begin braiding your ponytail

You can start off with whatever braiding technique you’d like: fishtail, traditional, or rope. Whichever you choose, braid an inch or two down your pony before moving on to the next step.

Step 5: Switch to a new braiding technique

Time to switch things up with a new weave. Take your pick, ladies.

Step 6: Continue switching every inch or so to the ends

Once you reach the ends, tie your ponytail off with a clear elastic. Wrap a small strand of hair around the elastic to conceal it and tuck the ends into the underside of the hair tie. Once your pony is fully secured, fluff it up a bit starting at the ends and working toward the base.

Step 7: Finish with hairspray

A spritz or two of hairspray can help keep your hairstyle high and tight for whatever the day has in store.

FALL HAIRSTYLE #13: SLEEK AND TEXTURED HALF-UP TOP KNOT

You’ve seen your favorite celebs rocking this dual-textured look, and now it’s your turn. With the right technique, you’ll look equally as A-list.

What you’ll need:

Fine tooth comb

Styling cream

Wave spray

Clear elastic

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Apply styling products to wet hair

After you hop out of the shower and detangle your hair, apply a dollop of styling cream from your hairline back to your crown and spritz with wave spray from your crown down to your ends. This application technique can help ensure that you create the perfect textured look.

Step 2: Let your hair air dry

As your hair air dries, run your comb from your hairline to your crown to aid in smoothing, and scrunch your ends to help with defining your waves.

Step 3: Create your half-up top knot

Using your fine-tooth comb, divide your hair into two sections. Smooth your hair as much as possible from your hairline all the way back to your crown and secure the top section with a clear elastic. Once your hair is secured, twist the ends and loop them into a top knot. When securing your knot, allow some of the ends to peek out to embrace the season’s beloved octopus bun trend.

Step 4: Tease the rest of your hair

Using your fine-tooth comb, gently tease your waves for a more textured look.

Step 5: Finish with hairspray

To combat any humidity, wind, or any other hair destroying-force, spritz your fall hairstyle with a weather-control hairspray.

FALL HAIRSTYLE #18: UPSIDE DOWN BRAIDED BUN

Make an impression as you walk out of every room with this fun, flipped braided bun.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo

Boar bristle brush

Clear mini elastic

Hair tie

Bobby pins

Hair spray

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Refresh your hair

Spritz dry shampoo onto oily roots before styling your hair.

Step 2: Flip your head and begin braiding

To create your upside-down braid, flip your head over, and grab a section of hair at the base of your neck. Split this section of hair into three strands and begin weaving a Dutch braid, adding new hair as you go all the way up to the crown of your head. Once you reach your crown, tie your braid off with a clear mini elastic. Fluff up your braid before starting the next step.

Step 3: Create a high ponytail

Next, use your boar bristle brush to smooth all of your hair back into a high ponytail. Combine this hair with the ends of your upside-down braid and tie it all together with an elastic.

Step 4: Spin, wrap, and pin

Spin your hair into a twist, wrap it around the base of your ponytail, and pin it in place to create your bun.

Step 5: Finish with hairspray

Spritz your hairstyle with a bit of hairspray to complete your look.

FALL HAIRSTYLE #19: TRIPLE DUTCH HALF-UP BUN

Why weave one braid when you can have three?

What you’ll need:

Rat tail comb

Lobster claw clips

Clear mini elastics

Bobby pins

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Brush your hair straight back

Easy peasy.

Step 2: Divide the hair along your hairline

Instead of a middle part, separate the top layer of your hair into three equal sections along the top of your head. Clip two sections out of the way while you work with the first section.

Step 3: Weave a Dutch braid

Split your section into three more equal sections and weave it back into a Dutch braid, incorporating new strands as you go. Once you reach your crown, tie your braid off with a clear mini elastic.

Step 4: Repeat twice

Make two more Dutch braids along the top of your head using the same process from the previous step.

Step 5: Create your half-up bun

Twist the ends of your braids into a bun and fluff them up for a more voluminous look that conceals all the elastics. Once everything looks just right, pin your bun into place, leaving the bottom layer of your hair down.

FALL HAIRSTYLE #20: DOUBLE DUTCH SPACE BUNS

We love this otherworldly look for fall. The triangular shape plays up your facial features while the intricate braids and fluffy buns add endless style.

What you’ll need:

Wave spray

Rat tail comb

Lobster claw clips

Clear elastics

Bobby pins

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Make waves

Spray a wave spray onto damp hair to boost your hair’s natural wave pattern. Give it a little help and build more texture by scrunching your hair.

Step 2: Part your hair

Create a center part down the middle of your head using a rat tail comb. Then, drag the tail end of your comb from your hairline back toward the crown of your head in a triangular shape so that you have a section of hair that starts off about an inch wide and gradually gets bigger around your crown. Clip the triangular section out of the way with a lobster claw clip.

Step 3: Weave your first braid

Starting on one side of your head, split the hair along your hairline into three sections and begin weaving a Dutch braid. As you move back toward the crown of your head, continue to add new sections of hair into your braid. Once you reach your crown, tie your braid off with a clear elastic. Before moving on to the next step, use the tail end of your comb to fluff up your braid.

Step 4: Tease your braid

Hold the ends of the braid straight in the air and use your rat tail comb to tease it by combing your hair down toward the base of your braid.

Step 5: Wrap your first space bun

Twist your teased braid around itself to create a cotton candy bun and pin it in place. Don’t worry about making it look perfect because ends sticking out is all the rage right now.

Step 6: Repeat on the other side

Repeat the same steps on the other side of your head to create a symmetrical look.

Step 7: Finish with hairspray

Spray your braids with hair spray—and be generous.
