New year, new ‘do. It’s time to forget every terrifyingly terrific hair trend of last year, because a brand new wave is coming — literally. According to celebrity hairstylist Laurie Heaps, the biggest hair trends of 2018 will include everything from throwback styles to brand new ways do your ‘do. After all, hair history repeats itself — and it’s about that time.
This past year has brought some incredible hair trends. There’s been conventional celebrity favorites like the extra long locks of Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé. Of course, there’s also been the over-the-top trends like rainbow roots and seasonal trends like Christmas tree hair. Yes, that was a real thing.
Thankfully, history is here to save us with some throwback styles. Celebrity hairstylist Laurie Heaps shared her predictions of what hair trends will be big in 2018, and you’re going to love them. The hair artist behind Rowan Blanchard and Danielle Fishel says that the blunt ’90s bob, ’80s rocker waves, and the wet look.
Sound familiar? That’s because you’ve likely seen all of these trends before. According to Heaps, these trends from history will take off faster than every this year. Actually, she’s already created the looks on her clients to ring in the new year. So it looks like her predictions are coming true.
Although cutting you hair for the new year is considered to be bad luck by some, celebrities seem to think that it’s the thing to do. Vanessa Hudgens chopped her hair into a blunt ’90s bob to ring in the new year. Kim Kardashian even went back to black locks for 2018. If you’re looking for some inspiration, here are Heaps’ recommendations.
’80s Rocker Waves
While it’s no surprise that the ’90s are having a moment, this one might surprise you. According to the hair stylist, tight, ’80s curls are making a comeback. Khloe Kardashian even rocked the look for her New Year’s Eve celebrations this year, so get your curling irons ready.
Heaps has a few tips for how to achieve the look too. “For a tighter wave like this, reach for BioSilk’s Titanium 3/4″ Spring Curling Iron. This smaller barrel brings the wave to present day, no perms needed…To style, spray a heat protectant like White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Styling Spray from roots to tips and brush through. This heat guard and setting spray will lock polished curls in until your next shampoo.”
BioSilk 1” Titanium Professional Curling Iron combines the power of ceramic and titanium elements for the smoothest styling glide. The titanium barrel heats quickly and evenly while retaining even heat distribution. Titanium is high in strength and low in density allowing for a lightweight, scratch-resistant tool. Titanium produces incredible shine while sealing the hair cuticle and locking out humidity, creating silky, bouncy, long-lasting curls with incredible shine.
