3 Hairstyles to Ring in the New Year

As the new year rapidly approaches, we are all looking for ways to make a positive change in our lives. Where to start first? With our hair of course! We have honed in on 2018’s hottest hair trends from showstopping color to head-turning styles. Stand out this new year with these noteworthy hair trends that are sure to put your locks in the spotlight.


The Middle Parted Blunt Cut

We all know that the middle part has taken on the hair world by storm, and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon. Models, celebrities, and fashion gurus have adopted this trend into their everyday look, tweaking and modifying it to fit their personal style. So what’s on tap for 2018? The look that is quickly approaching incorporates this trend we love oh-so-much, but with a bit of a twist. Where layers were once the request of every client, they are now a thing of the past. Blunt cuts are making a comeback, and we couldn’t be more excited. This style is designed to frame the face, and angle in the jawline. This cut gives hair a sophisticated and sleek look transforming the middle part into a new and innovative style, and it puts a fresh face forward for the new year.


The Exaggerated Side Part

Take a trip back to the 20’s, where all of our favorite hair trends first began. One of the most noteworthy styles from this era is returning for the new year. The more common side part is being made a bit more drastic. Stylists are pushing the limits––and the hairline––to new levels. The exaggerated side part is gaining momentum as 2017 comes to an end. Celebrities are loving this new style because this new look allows both textured waves and sleek bobs to shine. In the exaggerated side part, the majority of the hair is pulled over to one side, which increases the hair’s overall volume and movement. This is just the look you need to give your hair some extra oomph during the cold winter months.


The Wet Hair Look

We saw it first on the red carpet at the AMA’s and it’s been making appearances on the runway left and right, the wet hair look has become the hair world’s most desirable trend this season. This easy to achieve hairstyle combines the power of your daily shower and the perfect hair product to get the chicest slicked-back look. Try some of FS Smoothing Gel to get that incredible shine. The wet hair look gives the impression of a dampened style and brushed back for one of the sleekest looks we’ve seen. This must-try hairstyle highlights the face to make a unique and showstopping impression. Tackle the “wet hair” style for your next night out on the town for an easily attainable, high-fashion look.
