Friedman expects to see buns of all types this season — single top knots, bantu knots, and low-key chignons. We like the Y2K vibe of Vanessa Hudgens’ twisted space buns, perched sleekly on top of her head (but wouldn’t say no to a few more).
If someone can’t check their makeup in your hair, is it shiny enough? For fall 2023, the answer is no. Until you have shiny, glossy, glass hair — you need up your reflective powers. Dua Lipa’s look is most effective on long, straight hair, but with a flat iron, you achieve the same sleek look on wavy textures. Start with a gloss treatment at your salon and use hair oil (we like Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil) when styling to maintain shine.
The humidity isn’t great for a blowout, so consider the cooler weather the ideal moment to get back to big, fluffy blowouts, says Hurtado. Arm yourself with a big barrel round brush, a hair dryer, and your favorite volumizing mousse (try Best of Beauty-winning Designme PUFF.ME Hair Volumizing Mousse) to get shampoo commercial bounce that lasts for days (doesn’t H.E.R. just look like she’s having 75% more fun with this hairstyle?)
