As the global haircare market is estimated to be worth some $74 billion in 2018, we can expect to see a real shake-up and plenty of innovation within the industry. Hair care brands are adapting their offerings to suit the needs of the consumer, from tech-driven products and services through to more tailored solutions for individual hair types.
From the beauty team at Legends Salon of Hillsborough, here are three emerging trends to watch out for in this new year.
Hair goes techy
Hair brands will be using more advanced digital technology, both online and in salons, to provide consumers with better-personalized products and playful services.
From technology that assists consumers in finding the right product and service to digital beauty bloggers to a new app that allows users to test out an array of hair colors on a selfie, the tech age is here and it isn’t going anywhere.
Skincare for hair
Korean beauty trends continue to influence the cosmetics industry globally, with the multi-step regime now set to enter the hair care category. Given the amount of time we spend on skincare, our hair and scalp are neglected by comparison. The range includes a hair moisturizer infused with nourishing prickly pear to care for the hair and scalp, designed to use on a daily basis, in the same way as a facial moisturizer.
Treating hair loss
Hair care products that treat hair loss are set to see improved formulations emerging in the coming years, thanks to new ingredients and technology. Gadgets that target thinning hair will gain traction, as consumers look for non-surgical procedures and at-home products to promote growth.
From techy hair to fighting hair loss, there is definitely a twist to how we are handling hair care these days. As trends emerge, so is the need for new and improved ways we take care of our hair and solve our hair problems. If you are one of many who is always seeking better hair care products or searching for that perfect color, there are ways to achieve beautiful hair as these trends emerge.

If you are like me with very, very curly hair, you understand some frustrations we have to endure. I have a mountainous tumble of ringlets. It is a lot of work. It’s very high maintenance. They are impossible to detangle, I have to spritz them with a moisturizing reviving spray every morning, and they get crushed and matted after a full night’s sleep. Suffice it to say, I LOVE getting blowouts here and there. Wearing it straight is just so much easier. I can get it straightened on a Saturday and then don’t touch it again for up to a week!
Of course, blowouts can start to crumble, your roots get oily and your second or third-day hair can start to pick up certain environmental scents and can start to look dull. Luckily we have hacks for each of these issues. Check out these three ideas to help keep your blowout for as long as possible.
Dry shampoo is a lifesaver, not only because it controls oil and buildup between shampoos, but also it gives hair body at the root (simply apply, flip hair over, and massage into your scalp). Ask your hair stylist for some tips on finding the best dry shampoo for your hair. (I don’t recommend using dry shampoo when you are in curly mode with your hair because it can dry your hair out. Curly hair tends to be drier than straight hair.)
It’s a sad fact that hair can carry the scent of whatever it is exposed to. Going for Mexican and having fajitas? Better do that on the day before your next blowout. Nothing freshens an aging blowout like a lightweight hair scent. There are mists out there that are lightweight and faintly-scented. They also manage to fight frizz and strand static. Again, check with your hair stylist to see what they recommend. Most are good, however, and it is just a matter of finding a scent you like.
After the second day, your blowout can look a bit shine-free. When hairs rub up against the rough cotton fibers in your pillowcase, it can result in an ever duller-looking finish. Sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase. The shiny surface helps hair retain its natural oils and looks glossier than ever.
Follow these three simple ideas and your blowout will last you a while. When you are fighting the curly hair battle every day, sometimes it’s nice to go straight and not have to focus so much on your hair. Don’t get me wrong, I love the curls and I think they define who I am, but sometimes I just need a break!
