Top Hairstyle Trends of 2019
With a new year comes a new set of hairstyle trend predictions. Looking for a fresh hairstyle idea for your "new year, new me" mantra? We've got some options!
The Trusty Lob
The "lob" has been a go-to style for years, and we don't see this trend fading anytime soon. Specifically, the term "lob" is created from the term "long bob," which is a great option for those who want to achieve the angled and edgy look of a traditional bob without going too short. A lob haircut is longer in the front and angles shorter towards the back. You can keep your hair as long in the front as you'd like, though most opt for about shoulder-length.
Another great option for those looking to achieve an edgy look is to ask for choppy layers. These can make a bold statement with just about any length hair, but we recommend a shorter style (at or above the shoulders) for maximum impact. If you really want to achieve an eye-catching look, consider blunt or fringe bangs along with your new choppy layers.
The Pixie Cut
If you've been thinking about going super short, a textured pixie haircut might fit the bill. This super layered look is great for creating lots of volume and texture for a classic and lightweight style that you'll love. Not to mention, pixie hair is super quick and easy to style. Think of all the time and energy you'll save getting ready in the mornings—not to mention, the amount of product!
Another innovative hairstyle that we anticipate will really take off in 2019 is that of internal layers. The idea behind this style is that shorter layers are hidden so you don't have to lose any noticeable length. At the same time, these hidden layers can take the bulk out of your hair and prevent it from looking and feeling weighed down. The end result? Lots of volume and body, plus the appearance of added thickness! This is a great style option for all hair types—but especially for those with thin or fine hair.
We put "bangs" in quotation marks here because technically, this style only creates the illusion of bangs—which is ideal for those who are curious to experiment with this look but aren't quite ready to commit. Specifically, the curtain bangs style involves layering and face-framing the hair in such a way so that it looks like you have long bangs; with this style, bangs can be parted down the middle or off to the side to achieve your desired look.
Ditch the Layers
With so much talk about layers, you might be surprised to learn that one of 2019's hottest hairstyle trends will likely be one-length hair! Skip the layers altogether and keep your hair a single length; this sleek style works best with straight or even slightly wavy hair of any length. Those with curly hair will actually benefit from layers since these can give much-needed dimension.
If you opt for a single-length hairstyle, you'll enjoy the simplicity of easy styling! Plus, not having layers gives you the freedom to mix up your part for a versatile look.
These are just a few of what we anticipate will be the hottest hairstyle trends of 2019.
