With fall just around the corner, there's no better time to take a risk, change up your look and embrace a new hairstyle.

The '90s are back and when it comes to hair, it's all about the bob. Appleton's clients Kardashian West and Lopez are just two of many stars to rock this style recently. To get the look, ask for a cut that's blunt and hits right below the jawline. Appleton also used a chocolate brown hair color that's glossy and shiny to really show off the sleek style.

Short hair doesn't have to be serious; in fact, it can be incredibly fun! When going for a big chop, Appleton recommends keeping your face shape and hair texture in mind and working with a style that complements both. For this look, Appleton added a dramatic side bang and used hair wax to style it.

A major hair transformation doesn't mean you have to go shorter. In fact, adding a little length can create a bold effect. Appleton suggested clip-in extensions and long layers to create a new look. Here, he finished off the style with deep — or "biblical" as Appleton likes to call them waves. It's perfect for someone who has long, one-length hair and is looking to add some more movement. Like the bob, the key to this look is keeping it shiny.
