2018 Spring Hair Trends

One of the best ways to keep up with rapidly changing style trends in the land of all things beauty-related; is to acknowledge one simple rule of thumb. Everything old is often new again. It’s true! And when it comes to the evolution of hairstyle trends, we’ve witnessed to everything from the man-bun of recent years, to perms that would make your poodle jealous, to the much lauded and loathed mullet circa ’84!  Hairstyles come and go, and then come and go – again, sometimes with a new twist! Check out some hair trends making their debut (or should we say return) on the runway and salons everywhere!

Keep it classy…and curly – Pay attention if you have corkscrew kinks that keep you indoors when the humidity rises above 1%! Pack away the flat iron and embrace the curls you were born with! This “love the curly, natural look” is here to stay. For now… so enjoy the low-maintenance of letting the curls fall where they may while you can.

A darker shade of pale – Or should we say, a darker shade than platinum?  The hot go-to blonde this year is warmer and darker at the roots for a more honey tone than white blonde, which is notoriously difficult to maintain.

Practically antique accessories – Ok, maybe not quite antique but hair accessories from several past decades are making a comeback. The Breakfast at Tiffany’s headscarf reeks of old Hollywood glamour! Or the – it’s not “just for putting on make-up” any more headband.  This one will have you channeling Doris Day and looking for old Mary Tyler Moore reruns! And lest we leave out one of the more recent hair generations, the scrunchie is making a resurgence! And why not? Who doesn’t love a soft, comfy way to pull your tangled mess into some semblance of order?

A little silver frost – We said everything old eventually become new again, didn’t we? In this case, silver hair is not because you didn’t see your colorist recently. It’s deliberate and we love it! Shiny, metallic silver is hot and any-age appropriate.

So whether you’re 16 or 60 years old, have a little fun and try out a new or recently returned hairstyle! And if your favorite trend hasn’t re-emerged yet, don’t worry, cause we’re betting it will get a turn in one of the next evolutions of style.  Are you intrigued by the ever-evolving beauty trends and the latest hairstyles?
