Get ready because there’s a new wave of 2019 hairstyle ideas coming your way. Combining fresh takes on old favourites and innovative looks that will transform your current locks, here at Additional Lengths we’ve been paying close attention to upcoming 2019 hair trends complete with the hottest colours you should be taking note of. If you’re stuck in a style rut with your tresses and wanting to use the new year as the right time to experiment with something new, get your inspiration here!
As always, we love looking to celebrity style when it comes to searching for the next big thing in fashion, makeup and hair. The following hairstyle ideas aren’t complex in their creation, but they can offer something different to your existing go-to hairstyle by enhancing what you’ve already got.
Centre Partings and Braid Pressing
Those with textured natural hair will love the effortless nature of this first 2019 hair trend. A simple centre parting in loose hair which has been lightly crimped is a strong look for low maintenance girls. If you have straight to wavy hair, braid from root to tip and run hot straighteners over the braids to lock in the crimp. Volume and texture is key, so prep the hair accordingly with volumising shampoo and texturising spray.
With the explosion of the popular Ashley Williamson diamante hair clips at London Fashion Week 2018, we’re seeing many adaptations of this fun hair trend. From large tortoiseshell clips that look straight from the 90’s, to hair slides adorned with powerful feminist diamante words, reinvigorate your standard top bun or updo with hair accessories to add another dimension to your hairstyle.
Straight and Glossy
Now is the time to get your faithful GHD straighteners back in action as luxurious waves are officially out and poker-straight is back! No matter your hair length, from blunt bob to extra long with human hair extensions, straight styling will be everywhere. Smooth a shine serum or hair oil from Moroccan Oil over straightened locks to enhance shine for a glossy hairstyle that is perfect for date night or a night out.
Take the straight and glossy hair trend and make it wearable for any occasion by opting for a hair piece. A wrap around ponytail can give you the sleek, long ponytail that glamour pusses like Jennifer Lopez showcase on the red carpet regularly. These are super easy to add to the hair and simple to remove once the party is over, so give it a try!
Hair Colour Trends For 2019
Whether you’re looking for a temporary change in the form of a semi permanent dye, or a complete and permanent switch-up with your hair colour, the following hair colour trends for 2019 could pique your interest.
You may remember that fashionable silver hair was all the rage a couple of years ago, but embracing grey hair is apparently a move forward in the hair world for 2019. Opting for dye instead of the painstaking wait of growing out potentially patchy natural grey hair can be a great option. Many celebs such as model Erin O’Connor and author Caitlin Moran have been seen rocking a stripe of grey in their otherwise dark manes for a quirky update in their hairstyle.
Another trend that we seem to have just said goodbye to is coming back around, but with a more grown up flavour. Bold lilac hair, rather than the previous pastel shade, has shot up by 1077% in searches in late 2018, showing a major increase in popularity. Those with blonde hair could experiment with wash in-wash out lilac hair dye colours, or pop into your favourite salon and ask for this daring colour update.
Which 2019 hair trend will you be adopting this year? Whether you’re looking to add some hair extensions for length so you can get celebrity inspired glossy locks, or if you want to try out a new colour, there will be something for you to play around with in our collection of hairstyle ideas.
