1. All Slicked Back

We’ve been seeing the wet hair trend on and off the runways and the red carpets and we’re confident that this look is here to stay. To recreate this look, comb a quarter-sized amount of Nexxus Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel through your strands and brush your hair towards the back of your head.

2. Sleek Bun

Looking to recreate this 2018 favorite? Brush and part your hair if desired, and then gather your strands to the back of your head into a low, sleek bun. This look is versatile and trendy, and we guarantee you’ll come back to it again and again.

Stressing about keeping your roots fresh is so 2017. Skip your next color appointment and let your roots grow in for a high contrast look. We talk more about this edgy trend here.

2018 hairstyles red slow sleek ponytail
Chic and easy.

4. Low Ponytail

We love a style that works for every part of your day: a team meeting at the office in the morning, a lunch date with your BFF mid-afternoon and a dinner date later on too. This chic low ponytail takes just seconds to create and can be worn for virtually any occasion, making it the girl-on-the-go’s best option.

5. Natural Waves

2018 hairstyle trends, for the most part, have been championing natural texture while doing away with hot tools. Well, maybe not always, but these particular styles have definitely made the case for skipping heat-styling and letting your natural texture do all the talking. Give your waves a boost by spiriting Bed Head by TIGI Beach Me Wave Defining Gel Mist through your strands while they’re still damp.

6. Pixie Perfect

Go shorter than you’ve ever gone before and rock this sexy style with confidence. We love how a pixie looks with every hair texture and type—that means that no matter what hair color and texture you’re currently working with, you can make a pixie work for you. Have curlier locks? We got you, fam.

7. Easy Waves

If your waves need a leg up and you want to give them just a tad more definition, then this is the style for you. Simply wrap large sections of hair around a curling wand, and then comb through with your fingers to loosen the style. Skip the hair product altogether for the most natural look.

2018 hairstyles easy twisted bun
Simply twist and pin.

8. Easy Twisted Bun

Think of this as the elevated banana bun, a.k.a. the simple twisted bun style that took the hairstyle world by storm earlier this year. Give your finished style a mist of TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Boost Hold Level 3 to keep the look in place.

2018 hairstyles crown accessories

9. Regal Accessories

As we saw at recent red carpet events, regal accessories are all the rage this year. Between full-on crowns and more understated headpieces, it’s all about accessorizing this season.

10. Sharp Center Part

Ironically, nothing says ‘modern 2018 hair’ quite like a good throwback! In this case, it’s that iconic ’70s-style center part. Use a rat-tail comb to create a super sharp part, or if you’re in a pinch, the round end of your bobby pin will also suffice.

2018 hairstyles buzzed

11. Buzzed Short

It’s 2018, and the idea that femininity is solely tied to a long, traditionally girly set of flowing locks is so out the window. What’s more, we absolutely love a look that we can totally maintain on our own, given the right tools. Shave your strands off to create this edgy buzzed look, and invest in a clipper so that you can keep your look fresh at all times.

2018 hairstyles box braids
The biggest braided trend of the year.

12. Boxer Braids

From celebrities to off-duty models, it seems like everyone has been photographed wearing boxer braids. Elevate a basic outfit with these detailed Dutch braids for an instant—and Instagram-worthy—upgrade.
