2019 Hair Trends You’ll LoveBlog ▸ Beauty Tips | February 28, 2019
This is the time of year when winter doldrums set in and we feel oh so blah. Decorations are down, champagne bottles emptied, and another Super Bowl becomes a distant memory (as is that shirtless image of Adam Levine). However, it’s time to do something good for yourself! You can start by pondering Pinterest to spruce up with a new hairstyle for 2019. Even better, check what expert stylists forecast as the latest and greatest trends, below:
Also known as ashy silver, this lightened look has slowly been turning heads and holding steady. That’s because it’s so unusual, especially on younger folks. I mean, most people- and products- advise to cover up those silver strands and hide them away. But 2019 wants us to embrace silver as those in the know predict this one’s a keeper. Make an appointment with your hair colorist to ensure you take on the right shade of gray for your skin tone. After all, aren’t there fifty?
Copper and Honey Hues
Think spring and bring on the brilliance with warm tones that glisten and glow. Brunettes, redheads, and darker blondes can add sparkle to dull monotones by lightening up with highlights or full-on radiance. Surprise your friends with an all-over copper shimmer or just add streaks of honey to perk up your blah from the inside out. You’ll feel ready for the new year with a pop of sunshine on your tresses!
Love ‘em, hate’ em, or just don’t care about ‘em, the Kardashians are ultimate trendsetters for our era. They’re not afraid to change and love to try, so take a cue from our famous fashionistas and make a statement in black. Be just as dramatic this year by sporting Kim or Kendall’s shiny raven locks. Worn on all hair types, the way to pull it off correctly is by having lots of shine. Use serum and shine sprays to keep hair glistening. Get ready to be noticed in this not-for-the-timid color trend!
These peek-a-boo bangs are back in fashion and ready to take a bow in the new year. Given the name because they split in the middle, curtain bangs embrace subtlety by breaking up harsh bangs of the past. Any length or color can flatter their facial features as eyes and cheekbones take center stage with this soft style. Keep it balanced with an angle on the bottom of your cut. It’s also a top choice for those unsure about full bangs or need to spruce up existing but boring ones.
Soft, Round Bobs
Just as curtain bangs soften straight lines, A-line bobs take the edge off this year. Think bouncy ends with a graceful update to stale bobs. To achieve an ultra-feminine look, ask your cosmetologist to point cut the ends and add plenty of luster with shine cream. So pretty!
Stylish Hair Accessories
No longer just for proms, shimmery, colorful hair accessories are big news this year. You’ll see the jaw clip return but in a classier, dressy version than before (insert sigh of relief here). Mostly all lengths and textures can add some interest with pins and clips. It’s all about having fun with your hair without going overboard. While you’re at it, add some ribbons and bows to flatter your new hair hue. Let the fun begin!
These trends are early entries in the hair world for 2019, so always watch for more as the year develops. Keep in mind, the best trend for you is the one you’ll feel confident wearing. Whichever change you choose, here’s hoping that this is your best hair year yet!
