The new year is always a good time to try a new hairstyle or haircut. After all, what better way to live out the phrase “out with the old, in with the new” than by getting a new look? You might even be surprised when you see a hairstyle or haircut you never thought of getting looks good on you.
Hair trends in 2023 include a comeback of early 2000s looks—also called Y2K—and various ways to rock a messy ‘do. You’ll also see fresh takes on retro hairstyles, paying homage to ’70s and ’80s trends. Feel free to experiment with any of these to create your signature look in the coming year.
Here are new hairstyle and haircut trends to watch for in 2023!
New Hairstyle and Haircut Trends in 2023
1. Textured Lob
We’ll see a lot of textured hairstyles in 2023, ranging from slightly tousled to ultimate bedhead. On a medium-length haircut, a tousled hairstyle looks fresh and youthful. Elevate your look by accessorizing with hair studs.
Editor’s tip: Nail any hairstyle by starting your day with smooth and manageable hair. Use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo. It has KERA10 Protein Complex which penetrates hair up to 10 layers deep for nourishment. This shampoo gives your hair 10 salon benefits in one wash! These include making your hair smooth, soft, and shiny, providing heat protection, keeping frizz under control, and leaving a long-lasting fragrance.
After shampooing with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo, use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Serum Conditioner. It also gives your hair 10 salon benefits in one wash. And aside from KERA10 Protein Complex, this conditioner also has oleo serum which leaves your hair nourished and moisturized.
2. Blunt Textured Short Hair
Add volume and body to a blunt bob by creating waves. Curl your hair one small section at a time using a curling wand or a flat iron. Then, finger-comb your hair to loosen the waves and create a textured look.
Embrace the mess because it’s trending in 2023. Take your pick from slightly tousled hair to all-out, just-got-out-of-bed looks. Use a curling iron to create imperfect waves and scrunch your hair to nail that effortless, messy-chic look.
4. 2000s Side-Swept Bangs
Remember in the early 2000s when this type of fringe is everywhere? It’s coming back! Relive Y2K looks by parting your hair deeply on one side and getting long, side-swept bangs. They frame your face without looking heavy like a full blunt fringe.
Editor’s tip: Don’t let dry and frizzy hair keep you from confidently rocking your look. After shampooing, always condition your hair so it stays smooth and moisturized. We recommend Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Straight Ultra Conditioner. It gives your hair the benefits of three keratin products in one! It has keratin relaxers that tame frizz, keratin serum that helps smoothen and moisturize your hair, and keratin essence that adds shine.
5. Sleek Low Bun
Chignons and low buns will be everywhere next year, so master the art of creating one. Give it an early 2000s touch by parting your hair on one side. Then, tie your hair into a low ponytail, twist it, and gather it on the base of your ponytail to form a bun. Secure it in place with bobby pins, and spritz generously with hairspray to create a smooth and sleek look.
6. Sleek Ponytail With a Deep Side Part
Get your go-to office hairstyle ready for 2023. Take out your fine-tooth comb and create this low ponytail that has a neat, deep side part. And like the sleek low bun, finish this ‘do with your favorite smoothing hairspray.
7. High Ponytail
You may go low, but you can also go high. This sleek and fierce ponytail screams, “Ready to party!” To nail that height and make your ponytail perky, here’s a little secret: use two to three hair ties. Then, wrap a section of hair around these hair ties and secure it with a bobby pin to make your ponytail look neat and polished.
8. Retro Haircut
Let’s go further back in time with a haircut that was popular in the ’70s and ’80s. Try the mullet, a haircut with short, layered sides and a long back that covers the nape. Pair it with blunt bangs and shiny, black hair to create an elegant and timeless look.
9. Long Feathered Haircut
This haircut is another ’70s look that’s coming back next year. Back then, the layers were curled outward to create a choppy, voluminous look. Now, focus less on the volume and more on the texture to give this haircut a modern twist. Use a flat iron to make your layers point inward and keep them from looking like tikwas. Then, scrunch to add texture.
10. Short Shag
Don’t like long hair? Try the short shag haircut. It has choppy layers, a textured look, and a retro vibe—all trendy in 2023.
11. Curly Pixie Cut
Let your natural curls shine in this short haircut for women. Keep your fringe long so you can showcase the shape of your curls. For the sides, you can either have them layered, slightly covering your ears, or cut short for an edgy, androgynous look.
12. Wet Look
Looking for an easy party hairstyle? Try the wet look. You only need to brush your hair back while spritzing generous amounts of hairspray to keep your hair in place. The result is a sleek, polished, and elegant look that didn’t take you hours to create!
13. A-Line Bob
Give a short or medium-length haircut more movement by keeping the front section long and the back short but not stacked. You get a fresh, lightweight-looking haircut—perfect for welcoming the new year.
14. Curtain Bangs
15. Lob With Blunt Bangs
If you love full blunt bangs, wear them with a medium-length haircut. Straighten your hair using a blow-dryer or a flat iron to create a high-fashion, fierce look. We’ll see more of this hairstyle in 2023, so you better get this ‘do now.
We’re in the last two months of the year, and now is the perfect time to get a new hairstyle for 2023. You’ll end the year with a bang and start the next one sporting the latest trends.
