"A just-above-the-shoulder cut with subtle layers at the ends is a great look for fall," says Potempa. "You can style it with soft waves or wear it sleek and straight—it's really versatile." For a more updated look, try out Jennifer Lawrence's semi-retro waves instead of the usual textured, beach waves you've been rocking all summer long.
Shear the weight out of thick hair with deep, inset layers. "Face-framing layers and side-swept bangs help to open up your face and transition you from beachy hair to a more polished and fresh feel for fall," says Potempa. Even better, this piecey cut takes some weight out of the back of your hair and gives it more movement.
