At the end of the year, it’s easy to look back and see which hairstyles were the trendiest and most popular. Hairstyle trends tend to have big cultural impact and are often remembered for generations as defining the look and style of a certain year or period. The start of a new year is the perfect time to make changes and start over fresh. A new hairstyle is a great way to do just that! If you’re looking to mix up your style in the new year, check out these hairstyle trends that are expected to be popular in 2023.
Defined by flowing, feathery layers, the butterfly is a low-maintenance layered style that works for a variety of hair types. Short layers frame the face while long layers extend past the shoulders. Big, dramatic curls are spread through the layers for a wispy style. This voluminous look can be achieved with a good volumizing spray and a round brush. If you have shorter hair and want to try out this gorgeous style, work with a hair extension service to choose the best length and installation method.
First seen this past year, the octopus haircut is likely to explode in the earlier parts of 2023. In the words of celebrity stylist Frederic Fekkai, “The shape of this cut resembles a classic shag and exemplifies the fine line where grunge meets glamour.” This wavy, grungy cut will likely rise in popularity in line with the recent renewed interest in ‘90s culture. If you’d like to try this style, ask your hair styling professional for wispy bangs and layers at the top of the head with long, octopus-style ends.
The Short Afro
Embracing natural texture has been on-trend for the last few years. This year will be no different, with a popular look forecasted to be the short afro. This look comes with a variety of styling choices. For super curly or coiled hair, this is a low-maintenance way to switch up your look. It’s long enough to style into finger waves and short enough to emphasize natural texture.
The Short, Soft Bob
Bobs are one of the most timeless cuts. In fact, some style of bob seems to be trending virtually every year. In 2023, look out for the short, wispy, layered bob. “The short bob is a look that will have its moment in 2023,” says celebrity hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimmons. This looks great on those with a natural wave to their hair, and adding loose curls and texture is a great way to personalize it.
Shaggy, retro hairstyles saw a massive comeback last year. This trend appears to be sticking around for the new year. Lots of celebrities are opting for a modern shag haircut with dramatic, contrasting layers. They can be dressed up with bright, colorful streaks or patterns or styled loose and beachy. This year, the shorter shag is expected to be more popular, sitting above the shoulders for a super edgy look.
The Wolf Cut
A variation of the shag-mullet trends we’ve been seeing for the past few years, the wolf cut is defined by volume on top and long length at the bottom. Make if yours with long, sweeping curtain bangs and lots of dramatic layers. This style has lots of movement and texture while still being distinct from the shag. Try this one out for something unique in 2023!
Where 2022 had the bixie (bob-pixie), 2023 will introduce the mixie. A mix between a mullet and a pixie, the mixie is characterized by jaw-skimming long length. Another ‘90s revival with a little more drama, this look is expected to be explosive in the coming year. Personalize it with your own blend of fun layers or colors.
Curtain Bang Short Bob
Short hair is clearly going to be all the rage in 2023. Accordingly, it makes perfect sense that a bob styled with bangs is growing in popularity. Bangs are a fun way to frame your face and make any look work for you and your unique bone structure and hair type. Try curtain bangs with your bob this year to soften up the look.
