Fall is often a time for new hair and makeup looks to roll out. This year we’re seeing a lot of 90’s and grunge inspired fall makeup trends. And fortunately, the grunge look has carried over to fall hair and makeup trends, too. That means you can have a cohesive look without trying to find different styles that work together.

Let’s start with the hair because it’s a super easy look to pull off.

Grunge Hair For Fall

Grunge hair is all about looking like you woke up, didn’t care, and look amazing anyway. You don’t want your hair to look like you’re exhausted and didn’t wash it — that’s not what we’re going for.

Instead, wash and condition your hair, and then spray it with sea salt mist, like Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. Scrunch the hair and let it air dry for a wavy, slightly messy look.

Spectrum of Fall Makeup Trends

Grunge makeup is all about looking cool, rebellious, and like you don’t care what people think. But you can do this in multiple ways. At one end of the spectrum is muted 90s tones like mauve eyeshadow and brown lipstick. Light brown is a seldom used choice of lip colour that gives you an edge without having to be too careful about application.

You can get this look with Rimmel Magnif’eyes eyeshadow in Groupie and Urban Decay Vice Matte Lipstick in the shade 1993.

At the other end of the rebellious spectrum that is popular for fall is unexpected extra colour. Coloured eyeliners and ombre lips allow you to play with more hues. NYX Vivid Brights Eyeliner comes in a variety of shades, and none of them are basic black. To kick up the rebel factor, smudge the liner rather than wearing a perfect line.

The same goes for ombre lips, which you can achieve easily by applying a darker lip liner around the outside of the lips, and a bright or lighter colour on the middle of the lips. Maybelline Color Sensational lip liner in Plum Passion looks perfect paired with Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Dreamer.

Techniques like coloured liners and ombre lips can get tricky, but you’ll really stand out at any events you attend in fall. That’s why we suggest hair and makeup services to get the look just right. Stylu provides mobile hair and makeup, so book an appointment before your next night out!
