The new year is upon us, and with it comes a fresh set of hair trends to try out. From sleek and smooth to wild and textured, 2023 is all about embracing individuality and taking risks with your hair.
One of the biggest hair trends of the year is the return of the bob. This classic haircut has been given a modern twist with choppy layers and unexpected angles. To master this trend, opt for a chin-length bob with a side-parted fringe and use a texturizing spray to add volume and movement to your locks.
The bixie, which is a mix between the bob and pixie haircut, will also gain momentum amongst the bravest of us. The hybrid haircut allows you to experiment with a shorter length and can grow out seamlessly into a bob (see Florence Pugh). We're turning to Charithra Chandran and Bella Hadid for bixie inspo.
For those who prefer to keep their hair long, the curtain fringe is a trend to watch out for. This style, which involves cutting a fringe that falls just past the eyebrows, is perfect for adding a touch of bohemian charm to your look. To achieve this style, ask your stylist to cut a fringe that falls just above your eyebrows, and use a texturizing spray to add volume.
Another trend that's gaining popularity is the "shag" cut. This layered hairstyle is perfect for those looking for a low-maintenance look. The shag cut is all about embracing your natural texture and adding movement and volume to your hair. To master this trend, ask your stylist to add choppy layers throughout your hair and use a texturizing spray to enhance your natural texture.
Mid-length hair can often feel uninspiring, lacking the drama of either a super-short or extra-long style. However, 2023 will be the year of redemption for medium lengths.
