The Must-Know Spooky Season Beauty Trends to Try 

Neat Nails for Fall Style 

Velvet Nails

Velvet is such a go-to fabric when it comes to Fall. Instead of just decking out your closet, why not replicate it with a bewitching nail look? Velvet nails are cozy and fun way to opt into the Fall look without going strictly rich earth tones or metallic sheens. All you need to make this look happen for you and your clients? A little magnetic nail polish to replicate that fuzzy look! 

Deep Maroon Nails 

Rich and little vampy, dark maroon nails are a classic go-to for the Halloween season. They give off that sophisticated but oh-so-spooky sort of vibe, which is kind of the point of Halloween and fall nails. Right? Maroon is an undying, never-ending go-to if you're trying to channel some of those vampire vibes. Want to add a touch of sophistication to your look? Try a little glitz, glam, or bedazzling to really amp it up.

Cozy Brown + Mocha French Tips 

Nothing says sophisticated and cute like a French manicure–but this one has a Fall twist. Instead of a classic frenchie, opt for a deep brown and a lighter tip for a little iced coffee-mocha look that screams Autumn. 

We Love Olive Nails 

Autumn is characterized by rich hues, deep shades, and earth tones that reflect what's happening in nature–dark reds, rich oranges, and deep greens. If you've already tried the other end of the spectrum–maroon–why not give olive a go? This neutral tone is fun, cozy, and oh-so Fall–plus, it's great for both short and long-nailed folks who want to add a  little dab of Fall into the mix. 

Metallic All-Around 

OK, we get it–up until this one, all the fall trends have seemed pretty on par with the Autumn color scheme. So, how does metallic fit into the mix? Metallic nails are bright, shimmery, and make a fun statement. They tend to go with all those deeper earth tones that you'll be rocking all Autumn through, and they give every fall look you've got in your closet a little extra pop. As a bonus, they're a little unpredictable–which is one of those fall characteristics we can't help but love.

Must-Try Fall Makeup Looks 

Blood Red Lippies 

Go ahead, act like you're mad that blood-red lips are back into the mix. (We know you're not!) Fall means it's time to drop those warmer red-pinks (lookin' at you, fuschia and coral) and go full send into that vampire red look. Just make sure you're offering your clients a variety of blood red to work with (you know how red looks different on everyone).

Barbie Blush 

Hi Barbie! We know, Barbie premiered in the summer–but her inspo is following us into Fall (and we couldn't be more pleased). A hot pink blush on the apple of the cheek remains a must-have look for the Autumn season and is espeically hot in Barbiecore style. Make it extra natural and mix a go-to blush with a drop of foundation to give your clients that I-woke-up-like-this sort of glowy look.

Glazed Skin

Matte is out, glowy is in! For Fall makeup looks, be sure to offer your client a little extra glow by going heavy on the gloss. We want to see your clients lookin' like a glazed donut when they walk by. We're not talkin' sparkly shimmer; we're talking natural shine–so don't be afraid to add a little non-shimmer highlight all over to give your clients that glow-ahead-girl look. 

Spider Lashes 

It sounds spooky, but spider lashes are actually the ultra-sophisticated look for lashes at the moment. Think of Spider Lashes as a clumped (but in a good way) mascara look that goes extra bold on volume, color, and thickness.

Fall Hair & Hairstyles to Try 

Vintage Velvet Ribbons 

Fall is all about fabric–and velvet is a go-to year in and year out. Rock this Fall look with a vintage, velvet ribbon look on your clients. A little preppy, and a whole lot sophisticated, this velvet ribbon look says, "yeah, it's Fall and I've got it all." Try vintage ribbons in every style–high up on a Barbie party pony or scattered throughout with smaller bows.

Pumpkin Spice Hair, Please 

You thought pumpkin spice was just a drink? No way, buddy. This Fall, we want to see pumpkin spice color all over the place. We're talkin' rich hues of orange and brown with little flecks of warm red. Whatever your brain conjures up when we say pumpkin spice, that's the color we want to see your clients rocking. This copper-with-a-twist look should fuse all the rich and warm browns and oranges that will make your clients' hair look good enough to order at their fave coffee shop.

Ashy Bronde Highlights 

Let go of the beach blonde, give in to the ashy bronde. Fall is all about mellowing out those bright blondes and moving toward something a little more on the dark side (which makes sense, right? It is the spooky season, after all).  Tone those blondes down to an ashy hue and offer a little dimension to your brunettes to give their Fall looks a little something special. 

High Gloss Cold Brew Looks 

This Fall is all about shiny coffee looks. Up the gloss, mellow the blonde, and deliver a mocha-inspired cold brew look that's just as warm and cozy as it is glossy and sophisticated. We want this color to channel healthy Fall goodness! 

Vintage Velvet Ribbons 

Fall is all about fabric–and velvet is a go-to year in and year out. Rock this Fall look with a vintage, velvet ribbon look on your clients. A little preppy, and a whole lot sophisticated, this velvet ribbon look says, "yeah, it's Fall and I've got it all." Try vintage ribbons in every style–high up on a Barbie party pony or scattered throughout with smaller bows.

Claw Clip Updos 

The claw clips are here to stay–and we like it that way. Fall is all about neutral claw clips for the ultimate casual updos. Messy twists, half-up and downs–no matter how you want to use your clips on your clients, these tools are a must for Autumn's windy days. Bonus points if you opt for a tortoise shell color or a dark earth tone to really channel Fall.
