There’s no better way to say goodbye to the last year than getting a new haircut. Even if you’re perfectly content with your current cut, it’s like an alarm goes off in your head when the clock strikes midnight on New Years Eve. Suddenly, you have the urge to switch up your hair. Now.
The only problem is figuring out what cut to get. That’s why we turned to the master stylist Linda de Zeeuw to find out the biggest haircut trends of 2019 so you can narrow down your choices before the new year rolls in. Whether you have 2018’s uber-popular bob (and still love it), or your long hair is starting to feel stale, there’s options for every hair length and texture.
A dramatic or subtle change may ultimately be up to you, but all of the bases are covered with 2019’s haircut trends. Keep scrolling for all the haircut inspiration you need before heading to the salon.
If you somehow weren’t convinced to chop off all of your hair into a bob in 2018, breathe a sigh of relief because the cut is still going strong in 2019. This year’s version of the bob is blunt and hits at the jawline, but when tucked behind the ear, you’ll get an A-line effect. It’s also great if you’re looking to make your hair appear fuller because de Zeeuw says the shape will make your hair look as thick as possible.
“This style works best on straight hair, but if you have wavy or curly hair, it’s also a cool look,” she says. “You can alter this hairstyle for every face shape, too. If you want more volume on the sides (long face shapes), choose a jawline length. If you want to create length in the face (round or angular face shape) leave the length longer.”
