In 2019, it’s all about self-care, expressing gratitude, and treating people with kindness. By promoting and encouraging a healthy mind and body, we’re better able care for ourselves and others. And as you’re spreading the love, don’t forget to include your hair! This year, hair trends for colors and styles are all focused on warm, rich colors and healthy, naturally beautiful hair, as opposed to highly processed colors or harsh products that can cause dryness or damage. Book with one of our stylists today to try out these gorgeous looks!
Ashy blondes have been popular for a while now, but in 2019, the trend is definitely leaning toward buttery, warmer blondes. Soft, golden tones enhanced by pearlescent accents are likely to be huge this year.
Stylist Rebecca is also a fan of the shadow root, which occupies the space between a balayage and traditional highlights. It’s brighter than a balayage, but creates a softer root that blends your highlights to create a balayage look with less outgrowth.
Curtain Bangs and ‘70s Shag Cuts
Short haircut trends this season are blunt, above-shoulder bobs that are all one length, with no bangs, and a little bit of beveled graduation – none of the dramatic stacking we’ve seen in previous years.
Check out these examples by stylists Edward and Rebecca.
For longer or medium hair, longer, shaggy layers and curtain bangs are in. Curtain bangs, also called fringe, hit right at the cheekbones, and are typically accompanied by light bangs across the forehead. A great example are these bangs by stylist Cindy.
This year, it’s all about loose movement and texture. To achieve this look, first use a light mousse on your roots, then blow dry straight, adding volume to the crown of your head to give a messy, textured effect.
Once your hair is dry, use the biggest curling iron you have (we’d recommend a 1.5” barrel) on wide sections of your hair, alternating the directions of your curls. This will create curls that have a natural, lived-in look, rather than the perfect spiral/mermaid curls that have been popular for a while.
Experiment with any products that will give your hair natural movement as well as texture and hold, but be careful when using salt sprays, as overuse can dry out your hair.
For styling longer cuts, from our H-Line, we’d recommend our Dry Texture Spray as a must-have, as well as a lighter-hold hairspray such as our Designer Shaping Hairspray.
For serious nourishment and repair, start with a leave-in treatment such as H-Line’s Keratin Therapy and Elixir 11, especially if you have highlighted or color treated hair. For natural curls, we also recommend Ouidad’s Advanced Climate Control® product line to defend against frizz and enhance the definition of your curls.
To further protect your hair before heat styling, consider following this with a blow-dry aid such as H-Line’s Brilliance or My Amazing’s Blow Dry Secret Quick Dry Shake 'n' Spray, which provide heat protection and shorten the amount of time it takes to dry your hair, while simultaneously conditioning it for a soft, silky smooth, shiny, frizz-free finish.
