However, with just some simple tips and tricks everyone can look trendy, and it only takes minimum effort to do it. Hair that falls naturally will never go out of style, and it is one of the hottest fall/winter 2010-2011 hairstyle trends. Therefore, let's try 5 quick and easy fall 2010 hairstyles.

Side parting

This is a very easy and quick to make hairstyle, yet very stylish and sophisticated. The hair on one side will offer you a mysterious look such as seen at Givenchy and Dries Van Noten. Take your hair to one side, then use very thin hairpins in order to fix it. Try to choose hairpins in a color similar to that of your hair. For a more spectacular appearance, use the curling iron and create larger, soft waves into hair. Hairpins are not compulsory. If you have bangs, you can make an elegant version of this hairstyle by fixing your bangs with a thin hairpin hiding them under the loose hair. This time, use the hair straightener for a silky look. For a ‘70s style, try the wet version of this hairstyle as seen at Carolina Herrera, or a very edgy version as spotted at Alexander Wang.

Backcombed ponytail

This season, the classic ponytail became a major hairstyle trend. It comes in so many different versions from playful to chic and sophisticated. You can enjoy and reinvent your style. Try to add some volume into hair and you’ll see how versatile it is. You can wear it for a daytime look, or even for a night out, or for a more special event. Apply some mousse for volume on damp hair, then dry hair. Backcomb hair by taking a small section at the front of your hair. Gather your hair into a ponytail and set it with an elastic band. For a more stylish look, take a lock of hair and wrap around the pony base hiding the ends using a hairpin. As a final step, apply some hair spray.

Wavy and natural

This is another hairstyle that was very trendy during the spring/summer season. The „just-rolled-out-of-bed” look is back again for fall/winter 2010-2011. Whether we are talking about simple, tousled hairstyles, or soft waves, natural-looking tresses are a must-have if you want an effortless fall look.
The trend was spotted at Emilio Pucci, Balmain, Burberry Prorsum, Diane von Furstenberg, Zac Posen, or Marc Jacobs. For a tousled look, wash your hair and towel dry it. Then, apply some hair mousse to the roots, ends and mid-lengths. Blow dry your hair upside down, scrunching all the time for gentle waves. For a more defined hairstyle, you can use the curling iron and make soft waves. Secure them using hairpins. Allow the hair to cool completely and remove the pins, then gently arrange the hair using just your fingers. As a final step, apply serum that will keep the look soft.

Side fishtail plait

All summer long we have seen this trend everywhere. It takes just a few minutes to get it done and it looks very stylish. For fall/winter 2010-2011, Christian Dior presented a beautiful hairstyle with backcombed hair in the upper part and a long side fishtail plait.
Start by washing your hair, then apply some hair mousse on damp hair. Next, put the hair into a low side parting and gather it into a ponytail. Divide the pony into two equal sections. Take a small hair section from one side and pass it across to the other section. Do the same thing with the other side and continue the action until you finish the plait. Secure the fishtail plait using an elastic band. Apply some hair spray as a final step.

‘50s style

‘50s style is so hot for fall/winter 2010-2011 season, whether we are talking about fashion trends or hairstyle trends. Easy and quick to make, a '50s style bun is a very chic hairstyle. Start by setting the parting to one side. Fix your hair using thin hairpins and twist it into a loose bun. Set it using special pins. Apply hair spray to fix the hairstyle. You can draw your inspiration from the Fendi runway show. It’s up to you to choose where to make the bun as you can do it on one side or on the middle as spotted at Fendi. One of the It-hairstyles for fall/winter 2010-2011 seems to be the retro bun presented in the Prada runway show. This is also a ‘50s bun style set with a wide elastic band that takes minimum effort to make.
