2023 Hair Trends – What to Look Out For?

2023 will be just like any other year in that we can expect to see new trends in the world of hair fashion. Some of these trends will be brand new, while some will be re-introductions of old favourites. Regardless, here’s our take on some of the hair trends we can expect to see in 2023, and maybe beyond.

The Shag

The Shag was popular in the 70s and 80s and looks set to be a trend for 2023, and its popularity is helped by stars like Helena Christensen and Selena Gomez choosing to wear the hairstyle. Other reasons for the style’s popularity are that it works with a wide range of face types and hair types while it is also low maintenance. As such, we can help make this hairstyle look flattering for a wide range of customers.

The Mullet

The Mullet is one of the most distinctive hairstyles around. While the cut is often associated with men, it can look great on women too and looks set to be popular in 2023. Several stars have adopted the look, including Cara Delevigne, Kristen Stewart, and Miley Cyrus. One of the main benefits of the Mullet is that it’s easy to maintain and can be used when dressing up or dressing down. The Mullet is also ideal for busy people because it is easy to prepare before going out.

Short Cuts

The popularity of short haircuts tends to ebb and wane, and 2023 look set to be a year when they are more popular than ever before. And of course, there are numerous short cuts to choose from, meaning there’s something for everybody. However, 2023’s short cuts will have their own style and, for example, this year’s bobs are likely to be shorter than bobs in the past. The reality is that short cuts like the bob will never go out of fashion, but they will be more popular in some years than others.


Getting your hair just right before going out can be time-consuming and frustrating, especially for busy people in a hurry. The good news for those who feel the frustration is that there will be less need to perfect your hair in 2023. Indeed, one of the trends we’re likely to see is a deliberately casual look. And while some people would rather spend time on their hair, that doesn’t mean to say a casual look can’t also look fantastic.

One Length

While we will see a lot of layered styles in 2023, we are also likely to see quite the opposite fairly frequently. That is to say that this year we are likely to see a lot of people asking for one-length hair – just a straight cut with minimal styling. The outcome can be impressive when done right, although it can be a good idea to use hair mousse for styling to help prevent the limp look that can come with un-layered styles.

Octopus haircut

The Octopus haircut is a relatively new introduction to the world of hair fashion and has become increasingly popular since its arrival. The cut can be described as an adaptation of the mullet or the shag, with many layers that help add volume. One reason for the popularity of the octopus haircut is that it offers salon looks without the need for a lot of work.

Bold Accessories

While hair accessories are far from new, we’re likely to see a bit of a twist with them in 2023. That twist is that hair accessories will become bolder, helping to define the style rather than just hold it in place. Hair accessories will also become more creative as fashion companies look to compete with each other, so we are likely to see some very striking accessories indeed.

Long layers

In 2023, we’re likely to see layered hairstyles becoming longer than usual. Long layers are easy to maintain and offer versatility, helping you get your looks just right for the occasion. Long layers can work well with all hair types, but natural curls can help enhance the look.

Butterfly Hair

Another trend we’re likely to see in 2023 is butterfly hair. Butterfly hair consists of short layers that help to frame the face. The style tends to fall below shoulder level but still helps give a short-cut look. Butterfly hair is another style that will work with most hair types, although naturally curly hair tends to get the best results.

Curtain Bangs

One of the reasons for the popularity of curtain bangs is the way they help to frame the face. Not only that, but the style also complements just about any face type, meaning more people get to benefit from the style. They offer versatility and are very chic, making for a style that looks great and is practical.


Above are just a few of the styles that we are likely to see trending in 2023 and beyond. But remember that hairstyles are a personal choice and you don’t necessarily have to follow the trends to look fantastic. And if you do want to keep up with the latest fashions, it’s best to keep your ear to the ground because trends come and go all the time.
