1. Baby bangs

This type of fringe isn’t going away anytime soon. Baby bangs are shorter than your regular blunt bangs. They go from your hairline up to the middle of your forehead, while blunt bangs fall at eyebrow level. Baby bangs require a little more effort when it comes to styling and maintenance, but trust us, it’s worth it. Just blow dry your baby bangs down and straight, and the result will be an edgy ‘do that will make you look like you just came from the runway.

Editor’s tip: Protect your hair from heat damage by spritzing TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray before blow drying or ironing.

2. Baby bun

You don’t need to have long hair in order to have a bun hairstyle. Baby buns are going to be hot in 2019, and this hairstyle favors women with short to medium-length hair. If you have a lob and you want to put it in an updo, let baby buns be your go-to hairstyle.

3. Medium hair with center part

Medium hair is in, so when you go to the salon to have your hair chopped into a lob or bob, tweak your hair part, too. When you’re at home, just use a tail comb to part your hair in the middle while it’s damp, and let your hair stay that way until it dries. Your hair part doesn’t have to be perfect, so don’t stress about it. Then, finish with sea salt spray to add texture to your hair.

Editor’s tip: Create chic textured hairstyles, like beach waves and scrunched hair, by spritzing TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray on your hair.

Do you have a hair clip collection when you were a teen? It’s time to bring it out! Sport a trendy look by mixing and matching hair accessories. Play with different hair clips, hair pins, and even colorful elastics and create a fun ‘do. Style your hair this way on weekends when you want to take a break from sleek ponytails and buns that you often wear at the office.

5. Headband hair

Having a bad hair day? This is the solution. Just put on a big and colorful headband and voila! No one will notice. If you don’t have a headband, you can tie a scarf or a bandanna around your head to sport this trendy look.

6. Long braids

Just like ponytails and buns, braids are here to stay. Put your long hair in a loose braid (or two!) and look laidback but super chic. You can go for a regular three-strand braid, a side braid, or even a fishtail braid. When you’re done braiding, you can loosen up a strands of hair and let these frame your face for that extra dose of chicness.

7. Sleek tied hair

Tie your long pin-straight hair in a low ponytail to make it ready for 2019. You can wrap a small section of hair around your elastic or hair tie to make your ‘do look more polished. This hairstyle is perfect when you’re welcoming the new year wearing your favorite LBD and drinking champagne together with your family.

Editor’s tip: To nail a sleek hairstyle, get rid of frizz and fly aways by applying a drop of TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops on your hair as a finishing touch.

9. Vibrant hair

If you’re planning to dye your hair this 2019, why don’t you try a bold color? Instead of getting brown or blonde hair, try orange hair for a change. This cheerful color definitely spells good vibes. You can also try pink or peach hair to showcase your sweet and feminine personality. Green hair is also an option if you want something that is cool to the eyes.

Editor’s tip: Keep your colored hair from getting dry and dull by switching to Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner
