If 2022 was all about shiny glass skin, 2023 looks set to be the year of glass hair.
“Everyone wants glass hair,” says hairstylist and Bioterra ambassador Sierra Kenner. “This year, everyone will be taking better care of their hair. Many have invested in their skin and youthfulness. increase.”
As with glass skin, moisture is key to nailing this look. Kenner recommends using Bioterra’s Ultra Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner regularly to build a healthy base. I’m here. Care does not end there. At least not if you’re looking for the shiniest, most vitreous strands. “We need more than just a shower, we also need a lot of love!”
Keep your favorite hair mask handy for your weekly #selfcaresunday, and don’t be afraid to pump and comb oil through your hair morning and night. You can also try a gloss treatment at home or in the salon for an extra silky smoothness if desired.
Overall, there has been a warming trend in hair color over the last year, and these copper, amber, and maroon shades show no signs of slowing down.
“We will continue to see warm tones in our hair, including warm highlights, blondes, copper tones, and ‘natural reds.’ Most warm tones are suitable for all skin tones, but some reds may not be universal.
here the result? Kendall Jenner may have gone coppery crimson last year, but for the best results, you should ask your stylist which shade works best for your skin tone. It’s always great to have an inspiration image on hand at your hair appointment if you’re considering changing your hair. Need an example of a celebrity to bring to your stylist for instruction here?
“Hailey Bieber, Maddy Ziegler and Emma Chamberlain have all stepped into the dark side and played with warm tones,” says Nation.
If you’ve been battling the natural volume and texture of your mane, it’s time to embrace both and work with them instead of working against them. says one stylist, Sophie Rose Gutterman. “So many women are embracing their natural texture, and it screams freedom and power!”
Whether you’re using super-tight coils, loose waves, or anything in between, Gatterman says this look is best done by applying frizz-controlling products and diffusing wet strands for a natural look. It is said that it is all about doing.
“My go-to is All About Curls Hi-Defining Gel, because it makes my hair look fuller and defined while reducing unwanted frizz,” she says.
“Blunt haircuts are making a big comeback, and I think this is largely due to the healthy movement of hair we’re seeing in hair color trends,” says Nation. Hair always looks “healthier”, so people have been ditching overly untidy hair for duller ends and growing layers.
Gutterman agrees, actually doubling down on the tangible blunt trend regarding length. “Short blunt bobs are taking over the fashion world,” she says. and Lori Harvey go after big chops, and they’re killing it! gather.”
A blunt bob or a longer straight cut is pretty close to any kind of style you can find. Curly or straight, thick or thin hair, anyone can rock this look. That being said, Blunt’s cut is especially useful for those with fine hair who want to pretend fuller.
“This look is very universal and makes the ends of fine hair look a little fuller,” says Kenner. “If you have thick hair, ask your stylist to weigh it down, but keep the perimeter strong and full.” This (or a very soft layer or light texture) helps thicker hair look dull. “These days, Anya Taylor-Joy, Jessica Chastain, Khloe Kardashian, and Nicola Peltz-Beckham have all gone viral.” I wear a heavier blunt haircut and I’m here for it.
Ever wanted to spend less time sitting in the salon chair getting your hair dyed? Then you’ll want to know more about this upcoming trend.
Gutterman believes low-maintenance color—“hair that stretches naturally and blends in with your color”—will become even more popular in 2023. maintain,” he says Gutterman. “The natural tan color is seen on a lot of celebrities, but it looks so natural that they probably didn’t pay much attention to it!”
Celebrity hairstylist David Lopez, who works as an ambassador for T3, says clients, celebrities, friends, and TikTokers alike embrace muted colors. “People who traditionally had this medium-brown hair color that usually goes for highlights, like Hailey Bieber, are really embracing that dark look again.” But many people who want to get healthy go for a low maintenance color in order to get healthier hair.
Lopez says the darker shades are universally flattering, work with all hair types, and actually help play back and contour your unique facial features. I think some people forget to frame your face, and the darker your hair, the more you frame it,” he says.
Buns of all shapes and sizes
From 1960s-style chignons to Y2K-inspired spiky top knots, high buns are expected to be the “it” hairstyle of 2023. ‘ says Nation. “For our ‘cool girls,’ you’re going to see an early 2000s bun. Messy, not messy.”
Whether you want your hairstyle to be tighter and more sophisticated, or undone a little looser, there are plenty of bun tutorials to try. “A useful tool for a Y2K-inspired smooth and pointy look is the T3 Smooth ID flat iron,” he says Lopez.
For a little decorative flair, find accessories that match your updo vibe. A butterfly clip is a good choice for the Y2K look, while the slickback #snatchedbun is a pearl-encrusted hairpin or minimalist look. It looks pretty dressed up with the claw clip on the list.
Barbie blonde (and pink!)
Steamy beach blonde highlights Laguna Beach Reruns may no longer be on, but that doesn’t mean blonde hair won’t have its moment in the sun in 2023. The rise of Barbiecore and the release of Greta Gerwig barbie Blonde hair will return to the spotlight in a movie starring literally golden girl Margot Robbie, but it will be completely white as the platinum shade takes center stage.
“Platinum is very messy and recommended for clients with lighter natural colors,” Kenner says.
If you’re tired of your snow-white locks, there’s a microtrend that can cheer up your dull blonde locks: A hint of pink. It’s popular with people who are,” says celebrity colorist Gai Tan, creator of the #mydentity hair brand. “Rose is a no-frills shade that is not only super fun, but also subtle.”
If you’re already blonde, Tan says you can use his #MyRefresh Rose Gold Color Deposit Conditioner to get a rosy hue at home.
As popular as the blunt cut has become, layers aren’t going anywhere either. “I love layers because you can customize them to contour your facial structure,” he says. “Layered Her haircut suits everyone, but is best suited for people with medium to thick hair.”
Certain styles that enhance layers also grow in popularity. “I think iron waves will be a big styling trend this year,” says Tang. “It enhances layered cuts by adding movement to the hair.” He suggests using a medium-barrel curling iron to create waves. “It’s suitable for people with longer hair,” says Tan.
If you don’t want your hair to be super short, don’t worry. Longer lengths will be just as hot heading into 2023. Instead, Lopez says long hair lands somewhere in the middle.
“You see a lot of mid-length haircuts just below the collarbone and before reaching the chest,” Lopez says. I’ve never had a haircut and used a bob three years ago.”
