Whether you’re starting a new job, moving to a new city, or just looking for a fun way to express yourself – switching up your hairstyle can make you feel brand new! Here are our top five hair trends right now that we expect to see on runways and street looks far into the new year. Speak to your hairstylist about what works best with your hair texture and length to make these trending looks work for you.
1. Extreme Side Parts
The Spring 2023 runways in London, New York, Paris, and Milan saw a range of side-parted hairstyles that suit short and long locks. This look gives off major 2000s nostalgia when paired with long, side-swept fringe or face-framing hair clips. Another trendy way to showcase your side part is by tucking your hair behind your ears and slicking it down with some hairspray or gel.
2. Layers and Texture
Low-maintenance styles that show off your natural texture are all the rave in the hair world right now. Layers help add volume to fine hair and give wavy locks a relaxed cool girl feel that doesn’t take much to maintain. Spring runways also featured lots of big, textured styles for curly and coily hair types this year, building on the current global natural beauty trends.
3. Wet Looks
The wet look is making a surprising comeback this year, with many celebrities sporting slick, freshly-washed-looking locks at the 2022 Oscars and Met Gala. We love the versatility of this style – it works well with beachy waves, punky slicked-back pixies, and old Hollywood up-dos. You can also combine this look with a fluffy, Y2K-inspired ponytail by slicking back only the top half of your hair.
4. Bardot Bangs
Inspired by French actress Bridget Bardot’s iconic 1960s look, Bardot bangs are the latest viral hair trend to take over Tik Tok. This look is similar to a curtain fringe without the pronounced straight cut in the middle. A Bardot bangs fringe is long, voluminous, parted at the centre, and swept to either side for a fluffy, feminine look.
5. Bouncy Blowouts
Tik Tok is blowing up with hair tutorials featuring the famous Dyson Airwrap – if you haven’t seen it already, this heat tool gives you big, bouncy curls with a soft, blown-out look. Zendaya is one of many celebrities bringing the classic 90s blowout back, and we’re here for its soft, flirty feel. The “Modern Rachel”, a slightly longer version of the iconic 90s haircut, is another nostalgic blowout to try this year.
