Five Fall Haircut Trends Caused by the Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has changed many facets of our lives.

The way we work, worship, date, socialize, travel, and learn have all been altered, and that includes our grooming decisions. For many of us, our salons and spas have been closed for months. We’ve had to teach ourselves how to remove our own acrylics, dye our own hair, and even say a silent prayer before taking a pair of scissors to our split ends.

With the ways personal grooming and upkeep have changed, so have the trends that accompany them. Here are five fall haircuts and styles forecasted for the near future caused by the pandemic.

Embracing Our Grays

It’s not just older women embracing their natural hair color. It’s younger women too. With trips to the salon few and far between, many women are opting to rock their natural shades, and that includes gray hair.

Buzz Cuts

This edgy and daring cut comes with no hassles at all! Gone is the upkeep that comes with blowouts and color. Many women may opt to just shave it all off so that they don’t have to worry about their hair. However, if you do want to experiment with color, a buzz cut makes it simple to do so. If you hate the dye job, you can just cut all of your hair off again.

Another great thing about this cut is that it enables your face’s natural structure to shine through.

Long, Lush Bangs

If you want to change up your haircut, give yourself some long, fringe bangs. For best results, combine bangs with a long, layered cut. This style is easy to maintain during quarantine and looks simply stunning.

Pixie Cut

If you want the dynamic look of short hair without going super short, consider a pixie cut. Stylists predict that this adorable cut will gain major popularity because so many people will want a dramatic and bold change after being in quarantine for so long.

Like the buzz cut, pixie cuts can emphasize your bone structure. However, their famously fussy to maintain. But if you’re willing to commit to the upkeep, or can handle the awkward in-between-cuts phases, consider a pixie cut that is cropped on the sides and longer on top.

Super Long Hair

If a buzz or pixie cut aren’t for you, think about just letting your hair grow out. Not only is it easy to maintain, but long layers just look darn good.

From short and cute to long and lush, these five haircuts and styles are sure to be a huge hit this fall.
