The phrase new year, new me means something different to everyone but hair is a big part of this. That’s where you stylists come in. You are in the position to create new changes to a customer’s “new me.” There’s been so many new hair trends that they must be running out of names for them. For example, the octopus haircut… that’s a new one. We are dusting off our mood boards and highlighting some of the exciting hair trends we can’t wait to see in 2023. The latest ‘90s hair trends fueled by viral TikTok videos and celebrity sightings are not going anywhere. From “The Rachel” (after Jennifer Aniston’s Friends character) aka the octopus, to the bob-pixie, showed off by Sarah Hyland and Kaia Gerber, the ‘90s are proving itself as the “comeback king/queen.”
Many of the predicted trends for 2023 are expected to be hybrids. "Clients now are more prone to come in with several inspiration pictures where they show us details in each picture that they would like for us to put together in one cut," says Sara Grandberger, hairstylist at Hairrari LA. This includes the mixie (a pixie and mullet hybrid) and the shaggy bowl cut (a shag and bowl haircut's child), a look-a-like to the popular 70s hairstyle. If your client decides to get groovy with this shaggy bowl cut, you can create the look by cutting along the eyebrow and framing the face, so the layers enhance the curves and contours of the face. Don’t forget to finish off the look with ELEVEN Australia’s Make Me Shine Spray Gloss for that silky shine. Copper Color Copper hair color can’t be more popular at the moment. This hair color has been seen on many influential celebrities including Sydney Sweeney, Kendal Jenner, and Doja Cat. Every time we open TikTok or Instagram, it seems like someone else has changed up their look with a vibrant red shade. This trend allows people to get adventurous with their hair without a huge commitment. If your client is not planning on keeping the copper for long, we recommend using a demi-permanent from the Pravana Chromasilk line.
90s blonde blowout Not only is the 90s blowout hairstyle going to continue into 2023, but it is also predicted that golden shades of blonde will too. This “lived in root” can be achieved with a root smudge to simply blend existing highlights with the client’s natural color. To achieve the look, we would recommend using a Milbon Sophistone Demi Color based on your clients desired color and tone. For textured and voluminous curls, try the Living Proof Full Dry Volume & Texture Spray.
“Wednesday Adams bangs” ‘Wednesday Adams bangs’ have been trending on social media since the new Netflix show premiered — and salons can’t get enough of it. These bangs are full, yet feminine, giving you a bold and powerful look. Think of them as curtain bangs but a heavier, blunter alternative. For anyone who has had curtain bangs or has had to cut and style them, know it can be a challenge to get them to fall on the face perfectly. In order to get that body and flared ends, we recommend using UNITE EXPANDA Volume spray in the mid-section for extra volume and KEVIN.MURPHY FREE.HOLD styling crème to give the ends a flexible hold.
