Fashion lovers, rejoice: Fall Fashion Week San Diego is just around the corner. But if you (like us) don’t want to wait to find out what trends will be ruling your beauty regimen this season, then keep reading. We got a sneak peek at the Wine and Spirits Festival at Port Pavilion on the Broadway Pier, where the models will be heading down the runway for FWSD in just a few short weeks.

It’s no surprise that this style makes its way onto trend lists season after season: after all, there are seemingly endless iterations of it. “I always expect to see them in one way or another, because there are so many different types,” confirms our Lead Stylist Jeanette Cruz. Jeanette herself styled models for the show, choosing to subtly incorporate micro-braids into an otherwise sleek ponytail. This fall, try doing the same with everything from topknots to casual half-up, half-down looks. A small braid adds just the right touch of visual intrigue to otherwise expected looks.

Go ahead and rock that bedhead…or at least an artful version of it. Expect to see easy, effortless volume and waves (think more surfer girl than sorority girl) on models and trendsetters alike this fall. As fate would have it, Aveda just launched a product that will make it easier to achieve this look on your own. Texture Tonic imparts naturally-tousled texture while adding flexible hold and just the right touch of shine. Bonus: made from cane sugar and salt, it’s 94% naturally derived.

We noticed several styles with a decidedly vintage vibe at the FWSD preview, including multiple iterations of the perennially glamorous finger wave. Personally, we love this classic style – it adds the perfect mix of elegance and intrigue to any look. To emulate, we suggest using Aveda’s Flax Seed Aloe Strong Hold Sculpting Gel. This oldie-but-goodie product offers maximum control for shaping hair, leaving you waves so perfect even Daisy Buchanan would feel a spark of envy.
