The changing seasons may possibly prompt your clients to start changing their hair styles. According to Rusk Celebrity Hair Stylist, Naz Kupelian, of the Naz Kupelian Salon, located in Lexington, MA, these styles will be the "it" looks this Fall.

TAPERED BOB: Miley Cyrus took the plunge; will your clients be next? This fashion-forward look complements anyone who struts it. By surrounding the perimeters of the face closely, a bob invites great volume and shape. Add angled bangs and Kupelian says it will create an edgy and vivacious look.

FLASHY OMBRE: For Kupelian, bold is best. Take ombre a step further and add a bright colorful streak or two. A few flashy strips will stand out and turn heads. If you’re working with a brunette, opt for red or blonde. If you’re clients are feeling adventurous and confident, some streaks of blue or purple will make an edgy statement.

SOCK BUN: Sock bun, high bun, ballerina bun, whatever you want to call it, this sleek hair style will give your clients an at-the-office or out-on-the-town sophisticated look. Popular during red carpet season, celebs like Beyoncé and Lauren Conrad have been spotted with the classic updo.
