Fall is just around the corner, and with the arrival of pumpkin spice and everything nice come some fresh hair trends for the new season. Your favorite celebrities and social media influencers have been spotted wearing these dope styles.

Kyra Shea Medley’s team particularly loves fall's hair trends because of the growing popularity and wide-spread movement to embrace natural hair. That’s a win for black women everywhere. Love the skin and hair you are in this season!  

We thought we’d compile a list of the top hair trends for black women this fall. Now you can take red carpet fab with you to work, school, play, or wherever life beckons you. Check out these trendy hairstyles that you can rock with those natural curls, waves, or kinks!


1- Top Knots

There’s nothing more tried and true than a top knot. Sleek up those baby hairs with Kyra’s Shea Medleys Blueberries N’ Cream Baby Butter, which is only available this September. (Just in time for the fall season!) Orange is the New Black actress Dascha Polanco is spotted rocking one and looking fierce as ever!

2- Bob Curlcut

It’s time for a nice snip and clip! Show off the angles of that gorgeous face with a sleek bob curlcut. Jessica Pettway shows off her trendy cut on her lovely curls.


3- Bunhawk

Whether you like to rock your hair straight or curly (in a frohawk), the bunhawk has been a popular hairstyle all year long for black women. It doesn’t look like it will be fading out anytime soon. Give your hair a spritz of moisture with Kyra Shea Medley’s Rose Water and seal with your favorite Butter Cream. @naturallytemi shows us her bunhawk, a beautiful style that can be street casual or elegant glam.


4- Silk Press

There is nothing more sophisticated or sexy than silk press. All the celebrities have been rocking this look on red carpets. Now, it’s your turn queen! Rihanna shows you how with these effortlessly glamorous silk press.

5- Braided Crown

Since you are royalty, there’s no more suitable hairstyle for you then the braided hair crown.  Before putting your hair up in this regal updo, moisturize it with an oil like the KSM Avocado + Vanilla Oil Medley. Jessica James, The Daily Show correspondent turned Netflix breakout star, rocks her crown with a braided twist.


6- Blunt Bangs

We love a blunt bang! There will be no hiding your beauty with this fresh cut for the fall. You will only garner more attention with those bangs girlfriend. Take it from the beloved Sanaa Lathan that you can never go wrong with a blunt bang.


7- Jumbo Braids

Jumbo braids are a statement hairstyle that says you are edgy, fun, and just the right amount of cool. Get ready to rock out for the new season with this look. Model Jourdan Dunn will show you how to take those jumbo braids to the next level.


8- Faux Locs

This take on the summer braid craze will transition well into the fall season as temperatures begin to drop. Naomi Harris loves the faux loc style and embraces her natural hair and beauty. 


9- Sleeked Ponytail

Show off your face with this fall style as you slick back your hair into a ponytail. Use Lemon + Soybean Oil to get the shiny and silky, pulled-back look. Zendaya never goes wrong with any look, but she particularly kills it with the sleeked pony.


10- Curly Afro

There is nothing more simple yet beautiful that you can do with your hair this fall than wear it in all its natural glory in a curly afro.  Live and let fro! Let the curls flow in the afro, and use Instagram for some hair inspo!
