8 Fall Haircuts We Know You Will Love

8 Fall Haircuts We Know You Will Love

 The 'shab' is a cross between a bob & a shag that's great for someone with curly hair. Plus, more styles that will leave you looking hot as the temperature cools.

Dianna Agron's Shaggy Bob

What It Is: "I call this haircut a 'shab,'" says hairstylist Giannandrea, who created this look for the star. "It's a cross between a bob and a shag." The hair is cut above the shoulders, and then razored from back to front at a slight angle. "This is the kind of style that comes to life with the styling."

Who Should Try It: "Minus the bangs, this would be a great short cut for someone with curly hair," said hairstylist Mark Townsend. "The layered side pieces will keep the hair from forming that dreaded A-shape." Otherwise, this versatile cut would work for most face shapes and textures.
Evan Rachel Wood's Punk Rock Crop

What It Is: A short on the sides, long on the top cut. "Because the hair covers the ears, the cut looks feminine," says Townsend. "Boys haircuts are trimmed around the ears."

Who Should Try It: Townsend loves this look for anyone with straight or wavy hair. "It's such a versatile look—you can easily build volume and create some really interesting styles," he says.
Ashlee Simpson's Perfect Pixie

What It Is: A cool update on the retro pixie: Short in the back with a swoop of asymmetrical, face-framing bangs. "The long bits on the side are so flirty," says Townsend.

Who Should Try It: At last—a haircut that's actual best on fine hair! "The little details in this cut will really be accentuated if you have fine, baby soft hair," says Townsend. And of course, keep in mind that trims like this are ideal on women with delicate features.
Jennifer Love Hewitt's Long Bangs and Bob

What It Is: Thick, arched bangs and a straight bob cut three inches below the collarbone. "This cut is all about those blunt ends," says Townsend. "There are some soft layers on the underside of the hair, but the appearance is very sharp and very modern."

Who Should Try It: "This is a great look for someone with thick hair," Townsend says. The concealed layering will thin the hair and help it fall nicely with minimal styling. Read: Less time fighting with the blow-dryer and flatiron.
Tyra Banks's Wavy Bob and Straight Bangs

What It Is: A long bob that starts at the shoulders and gradually tapers to the collarbone. "Because her bangs have those choppy ends, the straight line isn't too severe," says Townsend.

Who Should Try It: The long bangs would be great for downplaying a large forehead; the loose layers work for nearly any texture of hair. Those with wavy strands will love the scrunch-and-go ease of the look—but do take the time to smooth the fringe.
Heidi Klum's All-Over Layers

What Is It: The polar opposite of a mom cut. "Heidi's hair is mid-length, which can get a little dowdy, but because of the dimensional layers sliced throughout, it has a great shape and isn't one bit matronly," Townsend says.

Who Should Try It: "I can't think of one woman who wouldn't look good in this cut," says Townsend. That being said, the look does require a bit of maintenance: Keeping the layers around the face trimmed to cheekbone level is essential to preserving the youthful vibe.
Cat Deeley's Classic Long Layers

What Is It: Chunky, face-framing layers with tapered ends. "These layers are not about blending. This is not the '90s Jennifer Aniston look," says Townsend. "You really want to have your stylist cut two distinct sets of layers at the chin and at the collarbone."

Who Should Try It: "I love this for anyone with tons of fine hair—the kind of woman with a ponytail that's two-inches thick," Townsend says. The layers will provide instant movement, but still let you show off all that lush hair.

Katie Holmes's Barely There Layers

What Is It: Extra-long, chest-length hair with subtle thinning at the ends to prevent the styling from looking Marcia Brady.

Who Should Try It: Are you that girl with long, silky hair that that dries straight with very little effort? Meet your new hairstyle. "I would even recommend this look for someone with curly hair that relies on weekly blowouts. If you can commit to the styling, it's ultimately a very low effort cut," says Townsend.
