The Hippest, Hottest Hair Trends to Look for in 2019

The Hippest, Hottest Hair Trends to Look for in 2019

The new year marks a perfect chance for a new you with new hair and a new style. Including hints of looks from past years and decades, to bold and edgy looks from the New York and Milan runways, this year is going to be a wild ride for hair of all types!

If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration for your next do, or just curious to see what’s to come, make sure to read on to see what we think will be the top hair trends to look for in 2019.

Silver Fox

Gray hair popped up onto the scene last year and it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! Be prepared to see variations of the look in 2019. Think darker, smokey looks that add more depth and dimension.

Micro Braids

Braids are definitely a staple of most girls’ go-to styles but have you tried micro braids? The look hit the runway fashion scene running (no pun intended) this season while being prominently displayed in the Preen and Bora Aksu shows.

Micro braids can be swept across the hairline in conjunction with any existing look or can be intricately placed along the part of your hair for a bolder statement.

Pops of Color

2019 is the year for bright, daring looks, as color will be the mainstay of the year. An onslaught of online influencers and celebrity figures like Kylie Jenner have already paved the way for many to add a little bite to their looks with long flowing, colorful wigs last year.

This year will see a dazzling influx of even more pops of rainbow brights. But remember, if you try this look, it’s important to use products like the Hair La Vie Shampoo and Conditioner set to prolong the life of your color.

Colored Ends

While making the bold transition from black hair to yellow may be a bit much for some, that doesn’t mean there won’t be those that want to dip their toes into the colorful pool. Expect to see colorful ends in the forms of ombres and highlights rise in popularity this year.

Rounded Bobs

Move over glass hair! It’s time to give rounded bobs their time to shine.

While the bluntness of 2018’s breakout hair hit, dubbed glass hair, definitely has its place, the rounded ends of this look add a bit of delicate dimension and bounce that can start the new year off on a fun and friendly note.

Pintura Highlights

Spanish and Portuguese for “painting,” pintura highlights are a new technique that expert colorists are utilizing. Rather than apply the color onto hair with the use of aluminum foil, the color is applied (or “painted”) directly onto the hair.

After it’s all said and done, the highlights that come from the pintura technique are a fun dimensional look perfect for any free-spirit this year!

Blunt Fringe

A new year marks time for change, a new beginning, and that’s exactly why we expect the blunt fringe to pave its way through 2019. It’s a statement-making look that is simple to achieve and can do wonders to your face shape.

Combining the blunt fringe to another look on this list makes for a truly personalized spunky look.

Retro Vibes

Retro and vintage style is making a comeback in the beauty and fashion worlds, culminating in a surge of popularity in 2019. Edgy and blunt looks are definitely going to be a mainstay for the year, but bringing back that old-school glamour is going to exude a radiant feel of feminine energy. Consider working french-twists and side-swept waves into the year.

Stacking Accessories

A unique concept that came from the 2019 runways is the idea of stacking or layering hair accessories. Adding in jewel-adorned criss-crossing bobby pins into the side of your hair can really up the style factor in any side-swept look.

Taking note from Japanese Harajuku street fashion and the Alexander Wang shows, expect to see unusual and unique ways to implement various accessories of all different categories into hair this year.

Final Thoughts

2018 was about honing your natural look. Whether just tousling your mane with a bit of product, or accentuating it with a bit a natural looking highlights, 2019 is all about upping the bold and daring sides of your personality to really create a unique look.

Head into the new year right with a healthy head of hair and a look all your own!
