Put Your Best Foot Forward in Class With a Cool Back-to-School Haircut

As you prepare to say goodbye to summer and create your back-to-school checklists, you might want to consider making a trip to the salon to get a new haircut to start the year off right. After all, a fresh hairstyle is an instant confidence booster and is guaranteed to make your first day of school even more exciting.

Whether you're heading back to college or starting a new year of high school, there's no denying that you could benefit from a little pampering before the stress of classes and homework begins. If you're in a style rut, you could kick off the fall season with a dramatic transformation (like chopping your extra-long hair to a blunt bob) or go all out and give curtain bangs a try. If subtlety is more your style, opt for a trim to get rid of any dead ends and give your signature look a light refresh.

We've pulled together some of the best fall haircuts for back-to-school season, ranging from short to long styles, so you can start the year off feeling your absolute best. Check them out ahead.
