Get A Haircut
Before heading off to school, it's always a great idea to freshen up your haircut. Chances are you will be super busy at school and pulling your hair back into a ponytail or bun more times than not. This can wreak havoc on your hair, so be sure to get a good cut or trim from your stylist to start the semester off right. There are so many options for cuts, but here are a couple of ideas from our Back To School Hairstyles For All Ages that are trending right now.

The long bob haircut, is still a great option. It's stylish and on trend, but also still able to be pulled back for those mornings where you need to get out the door fast. Ask to have it cut with feathered ends, to create the shattered ends, and whispy layers.
Fringe... Fringe is a fun option for back to school hairstyle because it instantly spices up any length of hair. With many variations, you can definitely find the style that is right for your features. What we love about bangs, is that even if you wear your hair back into a ponytail or bun, they still look fun and stylish. Talk to your stylist about which type of fringe is best for you. Keep in mind, fringe can be high maintenance so you will need to have them kept up regularly to keep the shape.
Get A Treatment
Another suggestion for your back to school hairstyle is to give yourself a hair treatment. It's going to be a busy semester and before you know it it will be cold and snowy, or hot and dry depending on your location. Either way, you want to be sure to give your hair the love it needs and prepare it for the upcoming change in season. Our Iles Formula products are perfect for hydrating and repairing your hair.
