The Biggest Beauty Trends For 2019
Posted on January 08 2019
2018 was all about glitter, monotones, and geometric eyeliner. Dare to go bold in 2019. That’s right, this year, it’s all about standing out from the crowd with a pop of color. This is the year to step outside your comfort zone and change up your style. Let’s take a look at what beauty trends will be big in 2019.
Leave your hair in 2018 because this year is all about short hair. From the blunt jawline bob to the grown-out pixie, short hairstyles are on the trend forecast for 2019. However, if you’re not feeling as daring, opt for a mid-length bob or soft curtain bangs for a subtle change.
Ask your stylist for a straight bob in line with your jawline, shorter at the back and longer in the front. The result is a modern, streamline bob that can be styled in a variety of ways.
If you're looking to go really short, but you're not sure what to ask for, try asking for a shaggy pixie cut. It's short and fun, but still maintains length to style.
Soft Curtain Bangs
If you want to give dimension to longer hair, try a low-maintenance, face-framing style like curtain bangs. This cut adds a little extra shape to any hair texture, without requiring a lot of styling. It's simply, yet sophisticated.
If you're looking for a style with a lot of texture, you might want to try a fringed bob. Ask your stylist for an angular chop with heavy bangs. Add dimension with this sleek, unpolished look.
