Lorie Knickle January 07, 2020

What a time to be alive! Here we are, at the dawn of the 20’s! Can you believe it? While we’re still awaiting advancements in flying cars and hoverboards, I’m sure we can all agree on this: we’ve come a long way baby. But now that we are here, living in the future, what lies ahead? It seems like the possibilities are truly endless, which makes for exciting times.  

It may seem like I’m here to talk technology, but no. I am here to talk about the really fun stuff (at least to us fashionistas). Today is all about trends, hair trends to be exact, and what we can look forward to in the year ahead. I’ll even give some product reco’s to help get you going.

Here’s what’s in store for 2020!

 Hair Accessories

Trends 2020, Hair Trends, Styles

Statement accessories started trending in 2019 and there’s no signs of the trend slowing down. In fact, accessories are gaining even more popularity and can be seen everywhere from runways to street wear. They're showing up in so many materials and textures! Pretty much anything goes. Velvet, satin, metal, pearls, stone, polished metal, corduroy, crystals & gems, phew! Anything that suits your mood will be on trend right now.

Shag Cuts

Shag, Hair Trends 2020

Like a grown out version of “the Rachel” (if you don’t know the cut, this is Jennifer Aniston’s iconic hairstyle worn by her character “Rachel” on the show “Friends”), wear this with lots of layers and texture. Wavey, curly shags are getting top points, and worn with bangs, they're just fresh to death.
