What Can We Expect From 2019 Hair Trends?
We’re well into 2019 now and with a new year and the change in seasons comes new trends. Zoe Irwin, ambassador for ghd is in the loop, letting you know what to trends to prepare for the 2019 hair trends.
Moving away from layers and towards something sharper the trends will shift away from a mid length bob edging towards something with a bit more precision that will suit all face shapes and hair types. Zoe says the update on this style will be cut “roughly half ways between your ears and the nape of your neck” enhancing your natural bone structure. However, “short hair can need more styling maintenance” Zoe warns, but with the time saved on drying, this shouldn’t be an issue. Less hair means lighter hair so you will need to alter the techniques you use. Not sure where to start? Be sure to ask your hairdresser to show you using the ghd platinum+styler.
High Shine Hair
Something every client longs for is a healthy shine, no matter how their hair is styled. This finishing touch will be a key component for all trends throughout this year. Zoe says: “My favourite tool for glossy and nourished hair is the ghd curve creative curl wand, the perfect multi tasker when you want less uniformed waves.
This will be one of 2019’s strongest look according to Zoe. Adding accessories to a hairstyles reveals an endless amount of possibilities and is a trend that she suspects began during the summer heatwave. “Syd Hayes launched his big hair pins which I love and Ashley Williamson launched the diamante clips too” Accessories have also been seen on models at Alexander Wang’s show and went viral earlier this year when Magnus Juliano adopted logo beads and box braids on his Instagram. Accessories can add edge or glam to any look making them a go to this year.
Braids are often used to add an ethereal element to hairstyles. This season they added tension and edge to many looks, a trend that may continue throughout the year. Specifically micro braids were seen in a variety of S/S19 shows so watch out for those across your timelines. Another use of this trend is the braid press. Inspired by Teen Vogue, Zoe is currently loving this technique.
