Celebrating United Nations Day: Our Favorite Trends from Around the Globe

Did you know hair trends are adapted all over the world?

ICYMI, it was recently United Nations Day last October 24, 2019, which, as the name suggests, is a day that’s all about celebrating cultural diversity and promoting goodwill across the world.

Over the past few years, hair and beauty industries have been making inclusivity a top priority. From natural and curly hair to locks of all textures and thickness, there are now products out there that cater to virtually every hair need.

To celebrate the day, we asked the All Things Hair editors from across the globe to spill their own favorite local hair trends. Keep scrolling to how certain hair trends are adapted and followed in so many different countries:

Dress up your favorite style with a headband!

Mariana Meggiolaro, Chief Content Officer, All Things Hair Argentina

“My favorite trend right now is headband hairstyles.” United Nations Day is a great time to recognize how a simple trend like headbands is being worn all across the globe!

Milena Prinzi, Editor-In-Chief, All Things Hair en Español

“My favorite hair trend in the super high slick ponytail with hair wrapped around the band.” To achieve this look, we love using TRESemmé TRES Two Ultra Firm Control Gel because helps lock your style in place while smoothing down flyaways and baby hair. Plus, it doesn’t leave your hair feeling weighed down or crunchy!

Using pearl hairpins is a great way to keep hair out of your face while being on-trend!

Yulia Zagudaeva, Chief Content Officer, All Things Hair Russia

“I like statement hairpins right now, especially those made of pearls. And big scrunchies!” Accessorizing your hair with clips and scrunchies is a great way to help you embrace the natural texture of your hair on United Nations Day!

Jeanette Nkwate, Chief Content Officer, All Things Hair UK

“I like the blunt bob and accent braids—I love a ponytail or bun mixed with some cute cornrows!” If you’re wondering how to style the blunt bob style, we love using Love Beauty and Planet Argan and Lavender Natural Oils Infusion. This product is one of our favorites because it helps smooth flyaway hair, leaving you with a sleek look—essential for mastering the blunt bob. 

Erin Mizuta, Chief Content Officer, All Things Hair Brazil

“My favorite trends at the moment are hairpins and the sleek hairstyles parted in the middle. I really like the long braids on top of the head too.”

“My current favorite trends are loose waves and accessories, like scrunchies and pearl hair clips.” To make sure your hair accessories are secured all day long, use Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texturizing Spray. Using a spray like this will create additional texture in your hair, making it easier to secure and clips and scrunchies. We love this texturizing spray because it helps you achieve extra body in your hair. This is also an amazing way to amp up the natural wave or curl in your hair for United Nations Day!
