Messy buns, different versions of the timeless ponytail, gentle waves, or backcombed hair are some of the most famous fall 2010 hairstyle trends. They are all the expression of a natural, effortless, yet studied and chic look.

Besides the models seen on fashion runways, celebrities can sometimes represent the perfect reflection of a certain trend, whether we are talking about a clothing item or a hairstyle trend. Celebrities such as Katie Holmes, Sienna Miler, Natalie Portman or Hilary Swank were seen wearing this season’s new hairstyle trends.


Natural hairstyles are sexier and more glamorous than ever. Hair is free with a simple parting. You could see it everywhere on the catwalk. Beautiful, long, bouncy locks that move gently as you walk represent the perfect reflection of sensuality and chicness.

Polished yet slightly effortless and messy, the new natural trend requires a healthy, glossy hair in order to add that special elegant, red-carpet look. This hairstyle suits everyone and it can easily be achieved only using some spray for volume, a blow dryer, and a medium-barreled round brush. We have seen the look on the catwalk at Chloé and Burberry Prorsum, but also on celebrities such as Sienna Miller, Whitney Port, Rachel Bilson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. A simple, natural, yet timeless hairstyle that will never go out of fashion.

Soft waves and curls

One has to admit that waves and curls are totally hot. They add a special touch to every look and the optimum body and texture to your hair, especially to fine or lazy hair. The fall-winter 2010-2011 season is all about texture. Therefore, those with curly hair should be happier than ever.

The more natural the curls, the better. You just need to use some special styling products to set curls into place. On the other hand, if your hair is straight, reach for your curling iron in order to get the look. Depending on the result you are looking for, you can obtain beautiful, messy locks, such as spotted on Leigh Lezark, or a more clean and sharper shape like seen at Natalie Portman. This hairstyle works amazing with a perfect, flawless skin and a smokey eye makeup.

Bangs and fringes

Bangs and fringes are the perfect option for fall 2010 and the easiest way to change or update your look. If you are worried that you’ll won’t be able to find the right bangs for your taste and face shape, you should know that there are bangs to suit everyone.

For fall/winter 2010-2011 the most popular are the long, eye-skimming bangs that are not too blunt, nor too heavy. Another trend are the asymmetric, side-swept bangs that instantly refresh your look. Katie Holmes looks amazing with loose waves and long side-swept bangs, while Alexa Chung’s layered, sunkissed hair with messy bangs adds a sexy touch to any appearance.

It seems that fall/winter 2010-2011 is all about quick and easy hairstyles that require the minimum amount of effort to make them. The classic ponytail is one of these trends. This season, the versatile ponytail was spotted on various fashion shows in different styles and interpretations. From slicked to super-silky and ladylike, and teased ponytails, this fall you have a wide range of styles available. Many celebrities have been seen rocking this hot trend. Hilary Swank copies the Louis Vuitton ’50s ladylike pony, while Kate Beckinsale goes for a more glamorous and voluminous ponytail.

Backcombed chignons

Celebrities always want to look flawless on the red carpet. For this, they need the perfect dress, makeup, and a suitable hairstyle. Chignons seem to represent one of the most popular hairstyles among celebrities. Well, it is known the fact that a properly done bun can add even more glamour to any starlet look. Just like the ponytail, the timeless chignon comes this season in so many different versions, from classic to messy, from wet-look texture to backcombed, from romantic to rock. Heidi Klum and Lo Bosworth were seen wearing a sexy, backcombed chignon with maxi volume for a rock look. In order to enhance the beauty of your hairstyle and add a glam effect, go for a minimal makeup look.
