Biggest autumn hair trends 2014

With new season fashion stocked on the high street and the weather turning cooler, we’re looking ahead to the hottest autumn hair trends.

If you’re a Great Lengths Lovely looking to update your style this September, here are our favourite hairstyles that you can wear with your pre-bonded or temporary hair extensions.

Ponytails with finesse


The ponytail is a hairstyle staple, which you can update this season by keeping your hair parted before pulling back into a slick and glossy ‘do. For daytime cool opt for a centre-parted pony or for evening glamour wear a low side parting with clean lines, using a comb to smooth any flyaways. Adding Great Lengths pre-bonded hair extensions will give you show-stopping length and volume, for a fresh-from-the-catwalk look. Ensure your ponytail stays in place by spraying a fine mist of Great Lengths’ Soft Finish Spray.

Wistful waves


Tousled waves needn’t be reserved for the beach, and as we wave goodbye to the warm weather we’re lusting after a natural, wavy look for our locks. To keep your waves updated for 2014, our expert stylists suggest a slanted side parting as seen on the Chloe models at New York Fashion Week. Relaxed waves look gorgeous on long or mid-length hair and you can achieve the look by using our favourite Cloud Nine Styling Wand, then gently brushing your waves with Great Lengths’ Flat Wooden Brush for added texture.

Grown-up Pigtails


What better time to channel a preppy, back-to school vibe is there than September? This autumn, stylists and fashionistas are going gaga for the classically cute pigtail. Wear it best by teasing a few strands from your style to frame your face, keeping the plaits neater at the ends than the root of your hair. Opting for Great Lengths Fastrack Service using GL Apps hair will give you added volume to your schoolgirl style and the fashion shades will allow you to weave a pop of colour into your braids.

Face-framing fringes


The fringe made a huge comeback to the celebrity world this summer and will continue to be a big trend for autumn/winter. Whether you wear your bangs long and swept to the side or short, blunt and edgy like Strictly Come Dancing presenter, Claudia Winkleman – so long as your fringe suits your face, you’ll be on-trend this season. Visit our blog for advice on fringes to suit your face shape and book a consultation with a Great Lengths stylist near you to ensure your bangs look great with your hair extensions.
