If the past couple years have been focused on embracing natural texture and no-fuss hairstyles, 2023 is gearing up to be all that and a little something extra. Ringing in a new year calls for fresh starts of all kinds, making it the perfect time for new hair trends to guide us straight to the salon.
We’re taking low-maintenance styling up a notch with statement-making cuts that do all the work and call back to decades past. If you’ve been wanting to make a chop, there are shaggy layers, blunt fringe, and retro styles just waiting to be shorn. We’re talking modern updates on vintage bobs, bangs, and long cuts, too.
You can add so much more texture to naturally fine hair using layers, layers, and more layers—focusing midway down the hair to the ends ensures you don’t lose too much volume.
Short and Wild Shag
Nothing flatters a head full of curls like a classic shag. It’s definitely the cool girl cut of the bunch.
Blunt Collarbone Cut
A lob that hits right at your collarbone is the most flattering length. Full stop. That’s all we need to say on the matter.
Cheekbone-Grazing 90s Bob
This chic little number isn’t going anywhere. It’s all about razor-sharp lines and super glossy strands.
1970s Long Cut
The soft, feathered, and fluffy looks of the 1970s are not to be forgotten. This modern long cut gives a nod to the long-haired babes of decades past.
This might be the most elegant crop cut we’ve seen all year. Side-swept bangs and flattering layers keep it wearable and long.
