JAN 2023

A few years ago, chemically-treated hair was the hot trend. Of late, the emphasis has been on embracing natural texture and easy hairstyles—but 2023 is set to have all of that plus a little more! The start of a new year necessitates fresh beginnings of many types, making it the ideal moment for new hair trends to lead us to the salon. Keep reading to learn the top haircut trends for 2023.

1)   The Dimensional Pixie Bob

Try a dimensional pixie bob if you want a makeover but still want to preserve your hair’s length. With the styling options of a bob, this cut gives the appearance of short hair. To contrast the movement in the haircut, especially around the face, you could add some vivid dimensional highlights.

2)   The Layered Inverted Shag with Bangs

This very animated and playful haircut is a layered, inverted shag with bangs. The face-framing layers and wispy bangs emphasize the eyes while showcasing the cheekbones. For a bright flash of color, add a dab of baby pink.

3)   The Inverted Lob with a Long Side Fringe

For a sleek style, opt for an inverted lob with side fringe. The cut has a seamless, angled flow to the front from the back, which is cropped at the neckline. On round face forms, inverted lobs are very attractive because they lengthen the face. To get the ideal tuck around the perimeter, style it with a round brush.

4)   The Mid-Length Curly Shag

If you want to add more volume, choose a curly shag that is mid-length. The ideal haircut to define curls is mid-length hair with cascading layers throughout the crown. Apply curl cream to your hair and diffuse for those oh-so-perfect, frizz-free tendrils.

5)   A Blunt Cut with Blended Highlights

If you want a tidy, low-maintenance haircut, choose a blunt cut with blended highlights. On fine, straight hair, blunt cuts look good because they provide the appearance of fuller hair. For a soft, rooty look with dazzling ends, add blended highlights.

6)   The Modern Rachel Cut

The iconic Rachel cut from the 1990s has been updated with a more extended, softer look. Although slightly longer and less choppy, the layers are still rounded around the face. For a bright surfer-chick look, add some golden beige balayage.

7)   A Blunt Textured Cut

By leaving the ends blunt and adding a textured bend to the body, you can instantly make your hair appear thicker. This one is definitely a keeper for the year 2023.

8)   Butterfly Cut

A butterfly haircut, which is all about long, feathery layers—lots and lots of them—is perfect if you still want to preserve your length but add more body and volume to your hair. The classic bombshell blowout style from the 1990s is being revived in a big way in 2023 with a gorgeous modification.

9)   A Wolf Cut

The wolf cut is still the main focus of 2023! This style combines a mullet with a retro shag. Try this one if you want a cut with plenty of layers and movement. On wavy or curly hair, use a diffuser to style it or use a hot tool to add loose waves to straighter hair.
