The biggest hair trend to blossom this season is accessorising to the max. From diamanté clips to school-girl Alice bands, present-perfect bows and velvet ribbons galore, accessories were all over the SS19 catwalks – so get ready, your hair is about to get seriously dressed up.
Take inspiration from our autumn hairstyles edit for 2019 to create high-impact micro braids straight from the runway, high bouncy ponytails and super chic bobs this season.
Soft waves are an easy-to-wear autumn trend that beautifully complement every hair length. From bobs and lobs to long-hair looks, use the ghd curve® soft curl tong to create loose curls, then brush through to achieve these effortless waves. Loosely tie back the top section and accessorise with a cute scrunchy.
Tip: Finish with a spritz of ghd final fix hairspray – but go easy on the products, this look is all about not trying too hard.
Wavy high pony
Full-bodied, high ponytails are all the rage this autumn and perfect for adding a laidback, feminine touch to your overall look. Use the ghd platinum+ styler to create a few loose curls before sweeping it all up into a ponytail and securing at the back of your head. Hide the elastic using a piece of ribbon or velvet to add luxe, fashion-forward finishing touches.
An instant way to refresh your look and transform your hair is to chop it all off with a beaut bob. Go for a sleek, super-short bob for a high-impact sharp finish, a blunt-cut bob à la Iriana Shayk, or a classic Khloe Kardashian style, depending on your face shape. Short, choppy layers help to frame your features, whereas longer lob styles are the most flattering for rounder face shapes.
Tip: Always use ghd heat protect spray as bobs tend to need more everyday styling than longer styles.
Glitz and Glam
Decorate your hair with the new class of hair slides – once cute and sweet, now seriously sophisticated. Super-sized diamanté clips have made a real comeback, with fabulous faux pearls, plush-velvet and silky ribbons all looking hot for 2019. To recreate this style, add a few loose waves and let your opulent accessories do the talking – ultimate luxe with minimal effort required.
An elegant updo with the addition of fresh flowers is the ultimate way to pull off occasion hair in the autumn. Chic, glamorous and flattering on all hair lengths, this floral twisted updo is perfect for blushing bridesmaids and summer balls, take a look at our how-to guide to get to grips with the style. Keep the front of the hair smooth by running the ghd platinum+ styler through the front sections before securing back into the intricate twist.
Pair your autumn/winter wardrobe with classic milkmaid braids for a signature autumn look. Elegant and soft with an air of angelic charm, this plaited updo is the only style you need to see you through autumn. Use the halo braiding technique to create the gorgeous shape, but leave the front sections loose and use the ghd tail comb to pull out a few tendrils around your face for an ethereal finish.
Introduce pearls into your everyday look by wrapping a strand around as a headband. This is an enchanting alternative to statement clips, channelling a more effortless autumn style. Keep the rest of your hair tousled and messy in a low ponytail to create a bohemian vibe that can easily go from shopping with the girls to a night on the town.
Double micro braids
Small braids are back and making more impact than ever before. Make a change from chunky plaits and replace them with high-impact micro braids. Fresh from the fashionistas, micro braids were all over the catwalks – and the consensus is the smaller and tighter the better. These double braids are a great everyday look, paired with soft tousled waves for a textured finish.
