From full-bodied fros to intricate braids and shape-shifting protective styles, 2019 is officially here and ready to up the natural hair game. After all, nothing says New Year like a brand new ‘do. We’re living for options and predicting the most refreshing styles we’re sure will be trending over the next twelve months. Get ready to spot these styles everywhere from the streets to the gram, but just remember you saw ‘em here first.
The buzz is a statement and a staple. The cut conveys you’re confident, edgy and free—with literally no words. Exemplified by muses like Slick Woods, we can’t wait to see our fellow fearless females try out the trend.
Take your hair vitamins, ladies. It’s the almost end of the decade and bigger is definitely better, so embrace what your mama gave ya, remember to condition and make this the year you #freeyourcurl and banish the blow dryer like this look by Larry Sims.
Ket braids are the best of both worlds—a high and mighty top bun meets the most flattering long and flowing plaited braids. Play with your parted section to make the look your own.
Add instant dimension to your dreadlock style by adding bangs. A fringe is also the ultimate hack to bypass even the slightest chance of an in-between awkward phase when growing out your hair.
If you try one new style this year, let it be of-the-moment, pretty Boho/Passion Twists, which you can think of as an easier alternative to Goddess Locs.
Add a wave and turn on the ombre—these are braids that move. Bring out your inner Victoria Secret Angel and equip your look for the catwalk by adding inches to your texture.
Beading is prob our fave way ever to cheat color and texture, and switch up your look all the way—with zero commitment. You can’t go wrong with hair that’s this creative and downright beautiful—think of it as this year’s braid piercing.
2018 was the official year of slime green, and though toned down, we’re happy the rainbow brite trend shows no signs of dulling down. However, to revamp for right now, instead of turning your saturation levels up to 100, purposely work in delicate complexion-complementing hues. We recommend spending some time with our old friend the color wheel and identifying your undertones for your perfect color cocktail. 2019 is about color that fits, not color that solely shocks.
