It’s officially fall, ya’ll! Boots, chunky sweaters, and fun natural hair are in full swing. When the seasons change, I like to adjust my style and hair for the new season. As a mom, I noticed that the last few seasons I’ve been pretty conservative in my dress. In fact, my husband and sister have been making fun of my affinity for A-line dresses. So this season, I’m paying more attention to trends to add some spunk to my classic style.
Natural Hair Weaves
Confession: I’ve never been a fan of weaves. But now that I think about it, I’ve never been a fan of bad weaves. With the advent of kinkier hair textures, I love them! They blend so well and are undetectable. Even when straightened, they blend with our texture since our straight hair doesn’t look “Brazilian Wavy”. Although I’m still not comfortable wearing a weave, I plan on wearing braids or twists. I’m looking forward to the extra length while protecting my own strands.
I’ve always had a fear of hats. [I thought I couldn’t pull off the look.] On a whim, I picked up a hat at Forever 21 and I’m in love. With some adjustments, all of my hair actually fits! This fall, there are some great options to top off your look, including: fedoras, floppy hats, and pork pie hats.
Fall Hair Color
I’ve been debating coloring my hair for quite some time and I’m ready to take the plunge. Natural hair color has been on trend for some quite some time, but it’s now more popular than ever. Not only are women using temporary hair products, like hair chalking and eyeshadow they are venturing more into permanent color. Now that we understand how to care for our natural hair, we are seeing more women be adventurous with hair color. This fall, try a reddish-brown or blondish-brown hue, or if you really want to have fun — purple!
Natural Hair Jewelry
And when I say, “hair jewelry”, I specifically mean jewelry for the hair. We’ve been rocking big earrings, headbands, and hair scarves for years. But recently, we are seeing more jewelry to adorn the hair. You just have to be careful so that it doesn’t snag your hair strands.
