2018 winter hair trends: 10 of the most-talked about hairstyles RN
1. ’90s haircuts
If you loved the ’90s, you’ll love them even more this time around – especially now that Bella Hadid has shown her approval with this recent red carpet look.
Take your winter hair back to the ’90s with face-framing layers, a choppy fringe and rich chocolate brown hues.

2. Winter braids
Editor’s tip: Messy braids are in, but if you struggle with braiding the TONI&GUY Flexible Hold Braid Balm gives structure and texture while still looking natural.
3. Bob box braids
Box braids are go-to winter hairstyles for curly girls and there’s no contesting their tress-protecting benefits.

4. Glass hair
Instagram’s glass hair trend has taken shiny A-list bobs and turned them into one of the hottest winter hair trends of 2018. There’s only one rule here: the shinier the better!
Editor’s tip: Luckily, you don’t need a glam squad to get in on the glass hair trend. A few pumps of the TONI&GUY Shine Gloss Serum through your ends (avoid your roots, you don’t want it to look greasy!) gives hair a mirror shine and smooths down flyaways.
5. Wispy faux fringe
Want winter hairstyles that work for every day? Take Gigi’s lead by sectioning the front of your hair off before tying the back into a ponytail for ’60s bombshell Bardot vibes.
6. Sexy updos
You don’t need to be an updo pro to appreciate J-Lo’s sultry AMA‘s updo. And the best part is it’s perfect for the upcoming Christmas festivities!
In contrast to some of the more slicked-back looks we’ve seen, this style is all about the texture, so either let your natural texture shine through or fake it ’til you make it by adding in some curls.
7. Hair scarves
Whether worn tied around a ponytail or woven through braids, they instantly make any style look more pulled together.
8. Ultra straight hair
Another ’90s trend making its way back into the mainstream? Poker straight strands.
The key to mastering ultra straight hair without it looking flat and lifeless? Lily Collins showed us exactly how it’s done, wearing her glossy straightened strands in a deep side part, giving the illusion of luscious long locks.
Editor’s tip: Straightening addict? Limit heat damage by always using a heat protectant, like the TIGI S Factor Flat Iron Shine Spray before reaching for the styling tools. This one is great for recreating Lily’s style, as it also doubles as a shine spray!
9. Top knots
10. Glam ponies
With Christmas and NYE on the horizon, it’s probably time to start planning your winter hair inspiration for party season.
