This year’s hair trends celebrate natural texture – from sleek back bobs to shaggy lengths. We love this trend as it provides an effortless style suitable for any hair length.
Celebrities frequently experiment with new hairstyles; one trend they are currently sporting this fall is a long bob. Priyanka Chopra recently debuted her chic shoulder-length cut and deeper color with this sophisticated look. Stylists recommend having this cut fall near your jawline for optimal face-framing results and adding subtle highlights with techniques such as balayage. Add an edge to your look by pairing your bob with bangs. From Brigitte Bardot-inspired curtain bangs or middle-parted eyes to even curly fringe, this trend is here to stay!
Layered hair can add movement, structure, and framing to your style while adding an edge that may otherwise seem girlish. Layering works exceptionally well on long wavy, or straight locks – try texturizing with Bumble and Bumble’s Texture hair (Un) Dressing Creme ($31) for piecey, texturized layers! This year will witness the revival of the middle part, seen across runway shows and worn by celebrity models, including Janelle Monae, Kourtney Kardashian, and Emma Stone. Fitzsimmons states it “works on all face types and is a timeless classic style.” Caramel highlights are an easy and unique way to freshen up dark locks, like this stunning style by @letstalkcurly.
Deep side parts provide an inviting, just-got-out-of-bed appearance and draw the eye toward your features. They work great on all face shapes and pair nicely with bangs or long layers for added dimension. TikTokers may have forced us into adopting middle parts in 2018, but Miley Cyrus is here to prove otherwise. Wearing her platinum blonde locks with an undulated side part and deep side part at an event this month, it looked sleek paired with her bold minidress. Backstage at Paris spring shows, stylists gave fresh takes on classic French girl hairstyles with various slicked-back styles and deep side parts. Try incorporating textured blowouts with plenty of hairspray into the class for an elevated take.
One of the best gifts you can give yourself this year is a brand-new haircut – and thanks to 2019’s hair trends, there is sure to be an option available that complements every length and texture. Choppy layers can add volume and softly frame your face – they are an easy and stylish way to update any style! Choppy layers also help maintain sleekness by softening edges on shorter cuts like pixie cuts or long locks. Gemma Arterton recently made headlines when she debuted a choppy shaggy lob that has gone viral on TikTok. The soft chop features all the volume and texture associated with traditional wolf cuts, perfect for straight and curly locks.
Blunt cuts were popular last year, but we’re seeing long layers become an increasingly popular style this year. Long layers add volume and texture while looking great on straight and wavy hair types – perfect for girls looking for ways to give their look depth without taking up too much sleep time in the morning! Consider opting for a layered midi-length cut that finishes just below the shoulders for a sophisticated style. This style works wonders for girls who transition out of their bob and is flattering on most face shapes. To add even more drama, pair your layered mid-length cut with wispy bangs; inspired by retro trends, they are stylish yet easy to maintain.
