New year, new hair? If you’re planning to change up your cut in 2018, we’ve got you covered. We’ve talked to three mane masters to get the low down on what the most popular haircuts of 2018 will be. Scroll through to see what celeb stylists Tym Wallace, Felix Ficsher and Bobby Eliot have to say about what the biggest haircut trends will be in the new year.
Tym Wallace blesses the tresses of Taraji Henson and Zendaya and according to the stylist, 2018 is all about shorter lengths. “For 2018, trend in hair include lots of short hair/ pixies and disconnected hair. For cuts, it’s the return to the 90’s with bowl cuts and the timeless Vidal Sasson signature bobs. We are also getting rid of the lob and taking it a couple of inches in length. YESSS to layers coming back next year. Bangs are making a comeback and they are textured and a lot longer kinda reminiscent of Farrah Fawcett.” Explains Tym. “We will also see more of curly textured styles but opting for round shapes with bangs for maximum volume.”
Long Layered Bobs
“Long layered bobs will be huge in 2018!” Says Felix who is the stylist behind major campaign and editorial shoots for publications like Harper’s Bazaar. “They will be longer in the back, shorter in the front – it will be a little feminine looking, but also a little rock and roll. The length will not be too short, so you still can put it up, wear it wavy, whatever you want, but it will be a strong, concave look.” Says Felix.
Solid Shapes + Heavier Outlines
Bobby Eliot, the mastermind behind the manes of celebs like Rachel McAdams and Mandy Moore, also adds on to the prediction that we will see fuller cuts in 2018. “I think we’re gonna see more solid shapes with hair. Heavier outlines, heavier fringes in all shapes, collar bone lengths. Clean one length shapes.
“I saw a lot of this trend on the runway particularly at Gucci & Balenciaga ss 2018.” Says Bobby. “Gucci had a lot of fuller outlines (think one length hair cuts with lots of texture. Also they had swoopy full fringes swept dramatically. Balenciaga had lots of full fringes in all shapes. Round almost bowl shapes, square fringes combined with long one length hair with messy texture.”
