This year is all about blunt, retro-inspired haircuts. We love how Margot Robbie’s angular cut is just long enough to be styled up or down.
Victoria’s Secret Angel Elsa Hosk proves that a ‘70s haircut can look just as gorgeous in 2018. This style is all about layers—from the long bangs to the flippy ends.
Take the bulk out of heavy or thick hair by cutting the ends with a razor and not a scissor, as seen here on Hailey Baldwin.
Short hair is as versatile as any other hair length, and model Jourdan Dunn is here to prove it. We love how a day after wearing her hair super-sleek and center-parted, Dunn hit up NYFW wearing perfectly messy bends that helped accentuate the layers in her cool haircut.
Some of us have accidentally worn this trend, seen on Emma Watson, when we got a little too scissor happy while trimming our bangs. But baby bangs (or micro fringe) is having a moment—whether you like it or not.
Rowan Blanchard upgraded a shoulder-grazing lob with wispy and light bangs perfect for spring.
Kerry Washington proves that hair doesn’t have to be long or short to make a major beauty statement. That awkward in-between length isn’t awkward at all, especially when parted deep to one side and styled in glossy curls.
The Subtle Side Bang
Side bangs are ripe for a comeback, but you don’t have to dive head-first into the trend. Angel Sara Sampaio’s haircut features a a subtle side-bang, thanks to long face-framing layers.
If your hair is naturally curly but you haven’t worn it like that in years—now is the time to start. Ask for a haircut that takes weight and bulk out of your hair, particularly near the mid-lengths, so that your curls can spring-up naturally, then invest in a good hair diffuser.
If you don’t want to chop any inches of your long hair but you’re itching for a change, get bangs. Selena Gomez just debuted choppy side-swept bangs at the Coach NYFW show that could very well be faux. It’s a haircut even the most commitment-weary among us can’t resist trying.
