SS STYLE + SHOPPING

ALTHOUGH FALL TENDS TO BECKON MORE SUBTLE HAIRSTYLES, THIS YEAR’S COLD-WEATHER LOOKS ARE ANYTHING BUT SIMPLE AND SEEM TO THROW US BACK IN TIME IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE. BY RYANN GORDON As summer fades to fall, so do many of our favorite, bouncy hairstyles that just don’t seem to sit the same way on a coat or inside a hood. And not only are our hairstyles changing for the cold weather, but the colors are fading as well, from bright, summer colors like pinks and blues to deeper, more romantic shades like maroon and, the most popular color of the year, silver-gray. Although fall tends to beckon more subtle hairstyles, this year’s coldweather looks are anything but simple and seem to throw us back in time in more ways than one. We can expect hair that explodes like your mom’s pictures from the ‘80s, slicks down like grandpa’s comb-over or can barely be seen beneath layers of headbands, clips, bows and even pieces of string and fake hair that has been woven in. Whatever you do — don’t forget the dryer sheet in your pocket for the static.

1. PONY SHOW The ponytail is changing this fall, from straight-back to the side-slicked, polished look. Use either oil or hairspray to avoid flyaways and add some texture to your pony — either a large, messy braid or wild, out-ofcontrol curls — and let your hair do the talking. Or, rather than slicking your hair back in a more tamed pony, go for a delicate, swept-back look that basically screams fairy princess. Throw in some baby braids and utilize your bobby pins to ensure no pieces fall later on. Part your hair in the center and braid down both sides, then cross them across the center for a crown braid like the wildly intricate hairstyles in Game of Thrones.

Pair long, side-swept fringe with a shaggy pixie cut that straddles the line between masculine and feminine in the best possible way. Unlike some trends, this look works equally well for work, school or a night out and is inexpensive less to maintain. From a textured bob to timeless chic, keep your look sharp or play up that texture.

3. SLICK IT UP Put a twist on a traditional pony and slick it down with a deep side part. Break out your boyfriend’s gel and get your comb ready; part your hair far to one side or

the other and pull it back into a tight ponytail or bun. Or, try out a newer trend and drop the pony completely. Slick your hair down on the side or straight back out of the face for a look that says gymfleek on the streets. If the straight, slicked-down style is a bit too boyish for you, try contrasting it with wild hair underneath. Either slick your hair down to the side behind your ears or straight back and out of sight (or not so much). Then, add the drama and pump up the volume underneath with either wild, savage-like hair or a puffy bun that expands beyond the height of your head. Having your hair
