It’s a new year, and what better time to try something different. These celebrity hair trends that emerged near the end of 2017 are set to be all the rage in 2018, so why not check them out and see which one is right for you.
The Wet Hair Look
This trend first popped up on runways in 2016, but has been taking the red carpet by storm ever since. It’s perfect for a night out on the town. The key to this fresh from the shower slicked back look is using the right products. Mix some wet-look gel with hair polishing cream and smooth it through wet hair with a comb from front to back or smooth gel, pomade, and hair wax through slightly damp tresses to create the same effect. Avoid mousse though—this will make your hair hard and crunchy.
Bangs of all kinds
Bangs came back in a big way in 2017, and the first few weeks of 2018 have already proven they’re here to stay—at least for this year. Celebs have been rocking bangs of all types, so you can give them a try no matter what your face shape is. Try a soft side bang if you aren’t willing to commit to a bold square look. Some starlets are even turning to a clip on bang when they just want the look for one event, not as a full time thing.
High Tight Ponytails
The high slick ponytail works for so many occasions, it’s no wonder celebrity women have been embracing them all year. You can dress it down or dress it up, add braids and double ponytails or keep it simple, wear it with bangs or without. Try slicking the front back with hairspray or a small amount of gel as a foundation before pulling the hair up to get a sleeker look.
Feel like giving your long hair a rest for a while? Lately stars have been turning to this the classic blunt bob style for a cute, stylish, and sophisticated change up. While traditionally worn with blunt bangs, you can always put your own spin on it, rocking a side bang or wavier sides if that’s more you. This cut can be a bit of a commitment, but it is well worth it.
Headbands and Scrunchies
The nineties are back with these hair accessories making a comeback. Scrunchies have transformed from a childhood ponytail must into a stylish accessory for the stars. You can wear them casually with a high pony, or turn them into a more formal look with a bun or braid. Wide headbands have also made a return, perfect for all events and hair types. The best part about these hair accessories is that they can be found for low prices, making getting this hair trend easy and accessible.
