Oh 2019, what do you have in store for us? While I may not be able to predict your love life, finances or the weather, I do have a hair and beauty forecast for the year ahead. Want to know what's trending? Let's discuss hair trends 2019!
Bangs are here to stay, and they are turning up in a variety of lengths. They can top off any look and styling them can range from beginner to intermediate.
Long, Face-Framing Bangs
To style long bangs, use a defining paste or wax on the ends to create definition. Hold in place with a medium hold hairspray.
Eyebrow Grazing Bangs
Bangs that fall to your eyebrows or just between your eyebrows and eyelashes can really soften your look. To keep them from getting oily throughout the day, try a spray of dry shampoo in the morning to keep them fresh. To style, use a flat iron on a low heat setting and smooth , curving slightly towards your forehead to create a light curve.
These bangs look best when paired with perfect brows! This look is fresh and ultra-trendy. When styling these cuties be sure not to use heavy products that can become greasy. Using a comb, blow dry straight down, combing as you dry to smooth out any cowlicks. Then, smooth with a flat iron and finish with a spritz of medium hold hairspray.
Too nervous to cut bangs? Go temporary with clip in bangs for fringe when you feel like it! Try Hair Affair Clip-in Bangs
The Blunt Bob
Bobs aren't going anywhere this year, they are topping the hair trends 2019. Taking inspiration from Hailey Bieber, Dua Lipa and Bella Hadid these bobs are blunt and to the point. When visiting your stylist ask for a longer bob (or lob) with a blunt edge. For a natural look try adding some texture and tousle with your fingers.
If you are blessed with ultra-long locks can we just say how envious we are? If not, try extensions to get these looks! Try Hair Affair Clip in Extensions
Long, sleek and so chic! Part in the middle and let it flow. Before styling be sure to use thermal protection with slight hold and a frizz-fighting blow dry cream. Then smooth with a flat iron for long luscious locks.
Get on that high horse! This is a super-trendy way to wear your long hair. Pretty simple, pull hair up into a ponytail at your crown. Smooth hair at your scalp with water to create the sleek look and hold it place with hair spray. Use a bit of serum on your ends for shine, strength and protection. Don't have long hair but want to rock this look? There's a hair extension for that! This one wraps around your natural ponytail to create an ultimate long pony.
Channel your inner sea goddess with long, shiny waves. If you have naturally curly hair, start this style with curl enhancer and diffuse with your hairdryer. If your hair is straight try a balm to bring out texture and curl with a long-barrel curling iron.
Shades of Grey
Whether your grey hair came from your stylist or from nature, this cool hue is so hot right now! Bring out the luster with silver enhancing shampoo and finish with a shine spritz for grey and silver locks.
High Watt Shine
Bright, gleaming locks will be popping up all over this year. Get in on this trend with a little help from shine enhancing thermal spray and a health boosting treatment.

Fresh for Guys
The biggest trend right now for men has to be fades, worn different ways. Leave it long on top and ultra-close on the sides for a look that's so hot right now. Wear the top slicked back or a little messy, either way it's all good!
Side Part Comb Over
This look is best worn with a little wax or pomade to hold it in place, without being stiff.
Make an entrance with this high and swept back style. Start with a foam and end with a firm hold hairspray.
This look is a little shorter on top than the other looks and is best worn a bit messy. Simply work some fiber paste into strands and muss it up!
