All Of The Timeless Wedding Hairstyles For The Perfect Fall Bride To Consider This Year

There are only a couple of weeks left in the summer, but we’re so happy that it’s coming to an end. We’re a bit exhausted to deal with the heat and humidity because it’s not doing a thing for our hair. Seriously! How many hairstyles can you do that involve frizzy, unmanageable hair? 

There’s no way to get a good hairstyle going in the summer, which is why most people planning a wedding pick either the fall or spring for the big walk down the aisle. 

1. Sweet and perfect

The fall season is the perfect time to experiment with hairstyles because you don’t have to worry about any humidity. A wedding braid is always a fun adventure because even if you don’t get it completely perfect, you can just incorporate a couple of bobby pins and add some subtle flowers to it. This hairstyle also reminds us that the fall season is great to highlight the color of your hair, and we don’t mean that literally. If you have brown hair or red hair, show it off!

2. Messy, sexy, and beautiful

This half-up, half-down hairstyle is one of our favorites mostly because of the fall floral arrangement. This color scheme is ideal for a fall wedding. So, think of this hairstyle as secondary to whatever flower crown you decided on. The flowers are there to heighten the look. If you want to add more detail to your look, Linda de Zeeuw, a stylist at NYC’s Rob Peetoom Salon said in an interview with Refinery 29 that a way to add more stylish trends to your look is to go with “Wispy curtain bangs” which is a “nice way of changing up your hairstyle, without cutting your ends short or changing your shape.”

3. Slick and classy

If you’re opting to wear your hair down, you can’t just arrange it the way you normally do on a typical day. The only way to wear your hair down is either by accentuating it with flowers or by opting to go ultra-classy modern look. Make sure you get the right hair product because the last thing you want is dandruff or residue. 

4. Bohemian vibes

For the hippie bride who wants to upgrade their usual chill vibes, the bohemian look is perfect but the only difference is that you can’t make your hair look dirty. Have stylish waves with good hair products such as Bumble and bumble wave spray. Then top off the look with flowers that you like. They don’t have to be huge or elaborate, just go with an arrangement that feels right for you. 

5. The modern updo

For a classy look with a flair of spontaneity, this updo is just right. This hairstyle gives the impression that it is effortless when we all know it will take hours to achieve, but the point is that looks beautiful. With a small hair clip or an heirloom clip, the hairstyle instantly becomes memorable. 

“Messy curls and ringlets that aren’t too polished are cool,” Mia Emilio, a stylist at NYC’s Devachen Salon, told Refinery29. “This is an easy, messy, but still polished style that still lets your curls be the statement.”

6. Make-mom-proud look

We understand that not everyone can pull off a messy look or bohemian vibes, especially if you have conservative parents, and this updo is perfect to achieve that proud status. While it is a bit more refined than we’re used to, it does say more about the importance of this event. The look may be a throwback to quinceañera glam, but it’s also nice to dress up once in a while. You are a bride after all. For an extra tinge of color, feel free to add a flower or two in the back, or low-hanging earrings to show off your neck. 

7. Refined and stylishCredit: Instagram/@tobbiestouch

This is one of our favorites because not only is it classy, it’s also incredibly sexy. It gives you so much look in the front and creativity in the back. Since it’s a classier look, the earrings and hair clip is intended to take the entire look to another level. 

Remember, this is your day (and your future husband’s too) so it’s important for you to choose a look and style that you like and feel comfortable in. You won’t be happy if you choose what someone else wants. It’s your day to shine!

Split End Serums That Will Help Hair Growth And Keep Your Ends From Splitting

Split End Serums That Will Help Hair Growth And Keep Your Ends From Splitting

Astrid Stawiarz / Stringer

Sure, there might be more things peskier than split ends but there’s no doubt they’re a universal issue that haunts us all.

Thanks to dryness, age, heat styling, and even just existing, split ends are a real issue that people around the globe have to deal with and manage every day. As the oldest part of our hair strands, ends need a very particular type of special care. Particularly if you ever want to avoid having those splits ends work their way up the entire shaft of your hair and wreak even more havoc. While snipping off those ends are a surefire way to fix a split end problem, if you’re trying to grow your hair out there are ways to attempt to keep your ends from splitting in the first place.

We scoured the internet for top reviewed split ends. Check out what we found below!

Oribe’s Split End Seal

“My stylist gave me a sample of this to use on my thick, fine, curly, highlighted hair after a particularly strenuous bleach session. I was so impressed, I bought this when the sample ran out.

Any good stylist will tell you, it’s pretty much impossible to actually seal an end once it’s split (beyond making it appear to be sealed for a short period). But it is possible to return moisture and other nutrients to hair that is damaged or close to splitting. And this product is very good at doing that. It seals the hair to keep the good stuff in and protect against future damage from the environment. A little goes a long way if you apply it to wet hair, before applying any other styling products. Seriously, I got six uses out of the sample. It’ll take me a while to run out of the full size bottle.

This stuff really does work miracles on dry hair. The only way I’d ever be able to get rid of all my split ends would be to just shave my head. But that doesn’t mean my hair isn’t healthy. More than one stylist has pointed that out to me. That wouldn’t be the case if I didn’t use quality products like this one.” – Amazon review

Rita HazanTriple Threat Split End Remedy

“My hair deals with a lot of heat styling and hairspray so the ends get a little worse for wear. I’m growing my hair out for my wedding next year and I’m a law student, so I can’t afford to be getting regular haircuts at this point. I got a sample of this product and can’t believe what a difference it made in my hair. I can no longer see the split ends and my hairstyles pretty effortlessly now. I just ordered the full size.”- Sephora review

Moroccanoil Mending Infusion

“LOVE LOVE LOVE Moroccanoil Mending Infusion! This product works great on the ends of my hair that definitely need to be trimmed! It fuses the tips of my hair after styling so I can go longer w out a trim. It makes the ends look healthy & the smell is terrific! I use all of the Moroccanoil products & so far they are working great for me! The only negative thing I can say is that the bottle is made of thick glass which the actual quantity of the product is less than it actually appears to be. However, it takes very little product for the ends of the hair! The product still deserves 5 stars! IF for any reason these products don’t work for you, it has to be that they have been returned “as no longer needed” & possibly tampered with by a dishonest consumer. Amazon will always make things right from my experience. From reviews I’ve read in the past, I felt I needed to add this comment as I have very difficult hair, coarse, frizzy, & unmanageable unless I use an excellent product like ‘Moroccanoil products’!!”- Amazon Review

PATTERN Jojoba Oil Hair Serum

“Love it! Smells like lavender, ahhhh. I love that you can use this on your scalp and hair. It locks in the moisture from the Pattern leave-in so well for super soft and hydrated hair. I’m so happy with everything from this line. I do believe this jojoba oil is a stand out product as well. You can use it in so many ways. I will continue to purchase this and pretty much everything else from this line. Thank you, Ms. Tracee Ellis Ross, you hit the nail on the head!! Can’t wait to see what else is in store for this line.” – Sephora review

Design Essentials Silk Essentials Thermal Strengthening Serum

“My hair is natural and I usually go to a salon when I occasionally want to have it flat ironed. I decided to order Silk Essentials Thermal Strengthening Serum to do it myself and I already had the Bamboo & silk HCO leave in conditioner that I used to detangle. Wow, these 2 pair together left my hair silky and as straight as if my stylist had dRead more about review stating Love this strengthening serum!” – Site review

Quarantining Has Chicas Subscribing To Club No-Shave And Are You About It Too?

Quarantining Has Chicas Subscribing To Club No-Shave And Are You About It Too?

@bodega.rose/ Instagram

No doubt the process of hair removal can be a pain in the hiney but when it comes to Latinas, these perils can get a little hairier.

Particularly becomes when it comes to being left to our own devices to remove hair in quarantine things just get worse. Sure, many of us are able to shave our legs on our own but what about the other parts of our bodies that might need a little more waxing and help? Turns out, plenty of Latinas are ditching their razors in quarantine and opting to let their follicles have free reign.

(Mind you, this is all despite the fact that as young Latinas we spent most of adolescence begging our mamas to let us shave.)

With this in mind, of course, we had to ask our FIERCE audience how they’ve been managing their body hair in quarantine.

The answers? They’ll make you want to whip your hair back and forth.

Check them out below!
