As if Emma's style influence wasn't already all over our capsule wardrobes, the social media star and coffee connoisseur has just offered up some major fall-time hair inspo—enter, Emma Chamberlain's updo...

Sporting a long cut-out red dress (which colorwise, is also a huge fall trend), Emma stepped out for Lancôme's Paris Fashion Week event on Wednesday, September 27, with her espresso-brunette hair pulled back into a soft, touseled bun, complete with face-framing curtain bangs. The look was perfectly undone and exactly what we're looking for in a fall hair look.

Now, we're not going to sit here and say that Emma in any way invented or coined this wispy bun look but what we are going to do is talk about how darn good looks on her and how we—and you—can go about recreating it this season.

MIL's guide to recreating Emma Chamberlain's wispy updo for fall

As mentioned, Emma debuted the hairstyle at Paris Fashion Week and it's already one of our favorite Emma Chamberlain hair looks of all time.

The updo itself is such a classic choice, with the majority of her hair brushed back into a spikey bun and her bangs—plus a few longer side pieces—having been softly quaffed around her face. It's simple and elegant and the perfect versatile look to pair with your wardrobe, from a casual work look to a fall-ready leather jacket and knit jumper outfit or of course, a more formal ensemble, like Emma's.

It's also surprisingly low-maintenance, much like the viral slicked-back bun, once you've nailed the method.

As for recreating this bun, you'll first want to brush your hair through—we'd recommend a bristly paddle brush like this one from Denman—then section out your fringe and a few shortish side pieces, before tying the rest of your hair back into a mid-rise ponytail.

If you want really voluminous bangs for this look, you can also use a hair roller or curler like these Dyson Airwrap dupes.

Then simply twirl your hair around the base of your ponytail and secure it before gently curling or blowing out (with the aforementioned tools) your bangs. You can then follow up with a few spritzes of hair spray, to lock in your style.
