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

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.

Baby Bangs

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.

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.
