Pixie Cut

Channeling a powerful femme fatale vibe, nothing says “hello, change” than a severe pixie cut. A liberating hairstyle to rock out to, it is important to consider that this is deceptively high maintenance (especially during the awkward growth stage) and can be a little picky with face shapes. But once you get the hang of wearing and mussing up this ‘do then it will look incredibly sensational on you.

Blunt Bob

Get it from Gone Girl, Rosamund Pike herself, the blunt bob gives that fierce and fiery look. To take this from typical, add a little texture by blowing it out or ironing it to sleek perfection and tucking one side behind an ear.

Long Locks

The most favored of all hairstyles, especially for the length-obsessed, it is best to keep the long locks a little messy and let your feathered ends enhance your look. Whether kept together or fanned out to a Farrah Fawcett reverence, there is a lot to play and have fun with.

Wet Look

A fail-safe way to look polished but with a heaping dose of edge, turn to the wet look for that instant fashionable moment. Far from being complicated to pull off, your standard products will definitely carry a distinctively tough yet tantalizing exterior, which you can match with that don’t-mess-with-me stare.

Retro Curls

Heat up your go-to tools, compel the waves from your tresses, volume up, and wear timeless retro curls, to your next day out. The key to making this distinct from the typical curls, stack on the curves and build on them to an impressionable height for that nod to the past.

Micro Bangs

2019 saw the advent of the micro bangs comeback and local celebrities are quick to sport the look. From Emma Roberts to Emma Watson, this divisive blunt cut is definitely a statement, but keep in mind that it does need a lot of attention. Feather it out, wear it ala Audrey Hepburn, or keep them symmetrical, best believe we aren’t seeing the end of this look in the decade.

Messy Low Buns

A quick and easy hairstyle to achieve, especially when heading out for a night at the town or straddling a hard-to-read dress code. A best of both worlds, a lot of fun can be had with this look, but for a modest ‘do, bun your hair down, and leave a few strands to achieve a more lady-like effect.

Space Buns

Comparatively the most playful and youthful of the lot, the fun space buns style is easily the one that spells futuristic. Taking cues from the Disney TV show, Zenon, the face of 90s punk pop, Gwen Stefani, and Miley Cyrus swinging from a wrecking ball, this diminutive buns fashioned from the good ‘ol ponytails will see its lifeline persist into the decade to come, especially when it comes to festival fashion.

As we shift our gaze into the next 10 years, this take on standard and sassy will definitely be a staple, because it is essentially a liberating look to channel when wanting to make that quick hairstyle change.
