Pin straight hair, chunky highlights, side bangs, the resurgence of the scrunchie – the 2000s brought us a lot of memorable hairstyles. Now that we’re a little more settled in the new year, and new decade, we’ve noticed some trends that we can’t wait to try out. Whether or not you’re looking for a fresh start, a cut, colour, or even just style can give you a new energy, and can even be surprisingly cathartic or transformative. Scroll through 4 trends we’re “hair” for this year.
Is it the 2020s or the 1970s? Either way, we’re loving it. Curtain bangs add beautiful movement, frame your face, and can be cut to suit any length of hair. Plus, they’re so much easier to maintain than other styles of bangs – because you’re too busy making other plans in 2020 to visit your hairstylist every two weeks for a bang trim.
The best part? Curtain bangs are a breeze to grow out, so you can try something new without being caught in that awkward I’m-growing-out-my-bangs phase if you change your mind.
Crisp, clean, and ready to take charge. Show this decade who’s boss with a sharp bob that grazes your jawline. This style will highlight your neck and jaw – and it’s flattering on anyone. Plus, styling options with a blunt bob are endless: bouncy volume (also huge for 2020), sleek and shiny, or tousled and effortless. Avoid an overly triangular shape by asking your stylist for a slight A-line slant if you have more curly or wavy hair. Looking to take this cut to the next level of trendiness? Give your ends a slight curl under.
Looking for some hair colour inspo for the new decade? Visible roots are where it’s at. Like the balayage trend, rootier styles are all about being easy and low-maintenance. While bright blondes that go all the way up to the root definitely still make our hearts flutter, they are definitely a commitment. This way, you can still brighten up your locks, but don’t need to call your colourist when the slightest hint of your natural darker colour starts coming through.
Crank up the Volume
1960s volume is making a comeback this year – think big and bouncy, with lots of fullness at the root and around the crown. This kind of volume translates really well into a half-back ‘do or under a thick headband. Dry shampoo will be your best friend with this trend; not only does it help with grease buildup between washes, it also separates your strands to help create lift – hello, new go-to second-day hairstyle!
