10 Fall Hairstyles That Are So Simple

As someone who was nicknamed “the blonde ponytail girl” in elementary and middle school, I know a thing or two about unwavering hair ruts. In fact, I spend about 90% of my life with my hair (still) styled in a ponytail, and if I’m feeling really crazy, I’ll opt for a topknot or braid. So, yes. In a way, I’m selfishly writing this article as a self-help guide for my less-than-adventurous hairstyling aesthetic. Fall is just around the corner, and there’s no better time to step up or switch up your beauty MO than a change in season.

That said, I want to be realistic. I definitely don’t want to spend more than 10 or 15 minutes on my hair, and given the nature of 2020, I can’t be bothered with any over-the-top looks. (My quarantine lifestyle just doesn’t make a super-splashy hairstyle feel worth the time, effort, or inevitable arm ache.) However, even though my styling hands are rather inept, I do enjoy time spent playing and experimenting with my favorite hair products and styling tools, and I still want to look put-together when I hop on a video call or visit friends and family.

Some effortless fall hairstyle inspiration was definitely in order, so after searching the internet for more hours than I’d care to admit, I’ve rounded up 10 quintessentially fall hairstyles that will totally have your back this season. (They’re so easy!) Tweak or customize them any way you want, but hopefully, they’ll spurn some newfound excitement and creativity. Keep scrolling! Ten super-chic fall hairstyles await.
