Get Up to Date on the Hair Trends of 2018

It’s time to gear up for 2018 with new clients and new styles. As you work in the student salon of your cosmetology school, you might hear more requests for this year’s hottest trends. From Nirvana Blonde to natural hair, many of these fresh trends are being driven by Hollywood celebs like Selena Gomez and sports stars like Colin Kaepernick.

Choppy, Messy Bangs

The era of ruler-straight bangs has come and gone. During 2018, look for more women requesting stylish pixie cuts with boyish bangs. These choppy, asymmetrical bangs look fantastic when swept in a slanted style across the forehead. Women who prefer to keep their locks long should try a similarly choppy fringe that features more length and has a fuller presence across the forehead.

Nirvana Blonde

Selena Gomez made heads turn when she stepped out with her new blonde hairstyle. Dubbed Nirvana Blonde, it is a soft platinum that has a decidedly grunge rocker look. To play up the devil-may-care look, Selena chose a two-toned style by leaving brown roots peeking through.

Styled Ends

The blunt look favored during the early 90s is back in full force. Show your clients how to style the ends for that coveted put-together look. During 2018, expect to see more women choosing the flipped-out or rolled-under style for their ends.

Natural Hair

The last couple of years have seen women and men alike embracing their natural hair. Flaunt your natural texture like Uzo Aduba or Colin Kaepernick, and help your clients do the same by showing them how to use a few essential styling products. Mousse, light spritzes of hairspray, and dry shampoo can work wonders for individuals seeking to flaunt their natural hair.
