A Celebrity Hair Stylist Predicts the Biggest Hair Trends of 2018

Nicole Singh


The common ‘new year, new you’ mantra can traverse many arenas of our lives as we welcome in 2018. But other than setting new health goals, we also love taking the opportunity to try a fresh new look. With our Pinterest boards boasting every type of inspiration shot, it can be hard to narrow down the exact hairstyles that we want for ourselves, but thanks to celebrity stylist Clayton Hawkins, who spoke to Elle, the guessing game is over.

Finding fame spraying, primping and snipping the locks of Elizabeth Olsen, Dakota Johnson and Alison Brie Hawkins gives special mention to bone straight hair, ribbons as accessories, the classic blow dry, and Alexa-Chung style bangs, all be noteworthy trends. But, the biggest trend we’ll be seeing is the curly shag. Yes, it looks like that the style many French models and even our local It girl Roberta Pecoraro have adopted is here to stay for another year.

Hawkins telling Elle, "Flash Dance is back, baby, but this time it's chicer and more refined." The best bit about it? For those of us with curly hair, it requires little maintenance. "If you've naturally got curls, don't be afraid to try it out and even rock a wavy fringe!"

It could be the year to take a risk, and get the chop. Anyone with us?
