Biggest hair trends of 2018


Copying a celebrity’s latest haircut is a great way to find something you love that works with your texture and look. But, what’s even better is beating them to the punch by knowing what hairstyles are going to be hot this year. Of course, not every trend is going to look right on you so we encourage you to consult with your hairstylist before you try and do anything drastic.

Some of the biggest takeaways this year is bangs, mid-length hair (this is the new long) and bobs. Accessories will also be the way to pull back your hair in the coming year. Let’s talk about the top styles and cuts that are already starting to rule 2018.

Curtain Fringe

Bangs were huge in 2017 and they are still big in 2018. There are a lot of variations but the one style everyone agrees on is the curtain fringe. It was first popularized by Brigitte Bardot whose fringe began at her center part and swept in a curve to her cheekbones. Currently, Sienna Miller and Kerry Washington have been seen sporting this bang look. This is also a look that can be done on curly haired girls too.

Blunt, Choppy Bangs

Think Christy Teigen when it comes to this look. Textured bangs are versatile and frame the face very well. Ask your stylist for a length that sits at your brows and is slightly choppier in the center, which opens up the face.

Jaw Length Cuts

It is predicted that 2018 is going to be the year of the short cut. A lot of people are chopping off their long hair and going shorter. Slicked back bobs and looks reminiscent of 90’s supermodels will be popular.

Soft, Center-Parted Curls

Curly and textured hair will be more relaxed in 2018 with a less structured feeling. This style is flatter on top and wider on the sides. This is great news for women with super curly, thick hair. For some, it is the natural flow of curly hair.

Mid-Length Cuts

Women are realizing that their hair doesn’t need to be to the floor to look great. It works on every hair type and brings more attitude, energy, and power to the hair.


The biggest trend of the year is probably going to be hair accessories. They are perfect for the low maintenance woman that wants something fast to dress up her look. Using accessories to put hair up will be a big trend. You can create a simple updo and secure it with an accessory to add drama. The great thing about this look is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on it. Simple ribbons can add a great effect.

When it comes to hairstyles, we always want what we see the celebrities sporting. Unfortunately, not every celebrity look is right for us. If you are considering a change to your hair this year, consult with your hairstylist to make sure the look you are going for will work for your hair type. Sometimes it’s just a matter of adjusting the style to fit with your look, even with hair extensions. Who better to know this than your hairstylist at Legends Salon of Hillsborough!
