It's still summer — just check the rise in temperatures across the country — so it makes perfect sense to put off your ceremonious autumn hair appointment. It's okay to wait on locking down your fresh cut (although the new colour trends have already arrived), because most of the au courant hairstyles for autumn 2019 are easily achievable for those who plan to milk summer through late September.
According to top celebrity hair pros, the looks that are going to dominate the new season are mostly fresh takes on summer's favourite styles, like the messy up-do and low bun, just accessorised with a pre-autumn spin. Ahead, check out all the looks that you can wear now, straight through whenever you draw line at true autumn, and still be totally on-trend.
The Elevated Topknot
Celebrity hairstylist Nai'vasha recently gave actress Logan Browning this structural bun she calls, "the curly topknot." It's further proof that updos can be simple and maintain the integrity of your curls.
Stylist tip: "Messy curls and ringlets that aren't too polished are cool," says Mia Emilio, a stylist at NYC's Devachen Salon. "This is an easy, messy, but still polished style that still lets your curls be the statement."

is on-trend for autumn because it's a low-commitment cut. "Wispy
curtain fringes are a nice way of changing up your hairstyle, without cutting your ends short or changing your shape," she explains.

The Claw-Clip Bun
