9 Hair Trends You’ll See Everywhere This Year

One of the best ways to express your personal look and embrace evolving trends and aesthetics is with a new hairstyle. Our hair can tell stories and helps us feel confident when we walk through the world, and using the right products and practices can give us those looks that we love to see in all our favorite celebrities.

If you’re looking for an “It Girl” moment, or you want to buck the status quo and go against the grain, you’ll want to try one of the new hair looks popular and trending in 2023, and we’ve got you covered. 

Hair Trends You’ll See This Year

No matter what side of the side part and middle part debate you’re on, you’re sure to find a new hairstyle or haircut trend that you love for the new year. From long hair to short hair, brown hair to blonde hair, wolf cuts to pixie cuts, hair color trends, and more, we’ve all seen hair fads come and go. But what can you expect this year? 

These are some of the top trends you’re sure to see your favorite celebs and influencers rocking on the red carpet and the ‘gram this year. 

1. Shaggy Mullet

We’re all about embracing balance in fashion and in hair, and the shaggy mullet is just the way to go. The shag mullet, or wolf cut, allows you to style up or down, which means it can be as professional or punk rock as you want it to be, and you can give it the glam or dive bar look you like best. 

Shaggy mullets have been a symbol of rock culture for a long time, and now we’re seeing them on some of our favorite androgynous style icons, like Twilight’s own Kristen Stewart.

The great thing about the shaggy mullet is that it’s personal. It’s most flattering when it’s cut specifically to your face, with longer and shorter pieces that frame and accentuate cheekbones and jawlines for a snatched style.

2. Glam Rock

Calling all Daisy Jones fans. If fashion is all about resurgence, hair is leading the pack. 

And since 1970s styles are, well, back in style, you’re sure to stand out with a glam rock look. The glam rock look may include shaggy hair, loose and long mullets, and the fluffy, wispy curtain bangs we all love. 

And the best part is that this style doesn’t require a whole lot of work. In fact, you want to swear off the hair dryer, round brush, and straightener and embrace the air dry — glam rock is all about natural texture, lots of layers, and waves.

3. Heatless Curls

2023 is the year of loving our hair, and that means giving it a break from the heat and the products. One way to achieve the curls and smoothness you love, but without the burn, is the heatless curl, which is more than having its moment on TikTok

Heatless curls simply rely on the natural grain and movement of the hair rather than heat, and when done properly, they can hold until your next shower. You can craft the perfect heatless curls using a kit, but our favorite influencers also use leggings, headbands, and any other accessories they can access.

All you have to do is wrap your hair around the wire or the fabric and let it sit. When you free your hair at the end of the day or come morning, you’ll have on-trend face-framing, bouncy, beautiful curls. 

4. Curtain Bangs

One of the best ways to get that retro look you love is with curtain bangs. Curtain bangs are shaggy and loose and designed to frame the eyes, just like you’re looking through a curtain. You can personalize different curtain bangs for different face shapes so they’re as flattering and low-maintenance as possible. 

One of the reasons we love curtain bangs so much is that they’re flattering on everyone. Whether you have straight hair, wavy hair, or curly hair, curtain bangs can be used to highlight your best features and to add that extra movement to your hair. 

They’re typically cut with a middle part, but millennials can still look great with a side part for their curtain bangs. 

5. High to the Sky

Maybe it’s the love for ‘70s style, but this year’s hair trends are all about volume — and that includes the updos. You can expect to see the elevated messy bun with high top knots. 

The benefit of this style is that it’s easy to do with just two hands and without a full-arm workout, and it can be chic and professional or punk and chill, depending on your style and vibe for the day. 

Volume is the name of the game this year, whether your hair is up or down, so don’t be afraid to embrace the high pony, the high bun, or the loose and messy look inspired by your favorite rockers. 

6. Ballerina Bun

One of those high and tall looks that won’t steer you wrong is the ballerina bun. It’s no question what the ballerina bun is all about, but we’re loving the extension of the balletcore style. 

Ballerina buns are slick, high, and tight, which makes them perfect for achieving effortless styles on even the hottest summer days. You can slick your hair all the way back for that top model wet look, or you can embrace the part for a little extra texture on top. 

The core feature of ballerina buns is that they look totally polished without much effort. Ballerina buns work for many different types of hair, including fine hair, wavy hair, and short cuts. 

7. Bedhead

Another way we’re rocking the volume in the new year is with the bedhead look, and it’s all about the texture. In fact, if there’s one look to watch for on your TikTok feed, it’s bedhead. 

It’s such an easy and stylish look, and it requires very little maintenance to achieve the perfect style. Bedhead hair embraces yesterday’s blowout and keeps the curls from the weekend looking cute and hip. 

You can add your favorite hair care products, but with this look, your flyaways and loose waves are very much in style. After all, we’re busy girls on the go. 

8. Blunt Bob

If you do love a polished look, a blunt bob might be the low-maintenance short hairstyle you’re searching for. When it comes to short cuts, the blunt bob reigns supreme for its chicness, elegance, and hint of punk, and there’s no better time to get a bob haircut than for the hot days of summer. Bob haircuts can be loose and flowy, or they can be sharp and sleek, as in the case of the blunt bob. Consider a slight curl at the edges for elevation and movement if you want to take your blunt bob to the red carpet.

9. Rachel for the Modern Day

The Rachel haircut is one of the most iconic looks from history, and women of all ages will dig the modern, flippy twist. Embrace 1990s styles in your own way with choppy face-framing layers of different lengths and lots of volume. 

You’ll see influencers and even celebrities like Hailey Bieber using their favorite hot tools, curlers, and products to get the look of voluminous curls that highlight the best features of the face and make you look chic and trendy. 

Whether you’re exploring the city of New York or hanging out in an enormous apartment with your besties, this is the haircut that will be there for you. 


The way we style our hair can really influence how we look and how we walk through the world, whether we’re doing a GWRM before class or meeting up with friends at the new boba place. Hairstyles are a form of self-expression and creativity, and they help us to achieve retro, classic, and futuristic with the turn of a curl or wave in a bob. 

After all, some of our favorite looks are inspired by and inspiring to television shows and movies from and about eras past.

The good news is that you have lots of on-trend hair looks to pick from for 2023, whether you love what the celebs are wearing or want to imitate your favorite influencers. From the red carpet to the For Your Page, from cottagecore to punk rock, it’s easy to create a hairstyle that really feels like you. 

Just check out options like the wolf cut, curtain bangs, ballerina buns, and short haircuts like blunt bobs.
