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.

Hair trends come and go but there’s a set of cuts that have proven to stand the test of time and therefore, will always be in style. While your favorite celebrities aren’t afraid to take chances and go for dramatic changes, many stars have one haircut they always return to. Do you have a signature style that you return to all the time? Does your hair stylist know they can count on you to stay with the same style? Even if you like traditional cuts, it’s always good to switch it up from time to time as well.
You don’t have to go with a current trend but maybe one of these time-tested cuts will make you take a second glance.
The textured, side-swept pixie is a timeless classic. Think roaring 20’s short do. A layered pixie cut is an adorable yet sexy look. Most women think they could never wear a pixie but the truth is, this is a cut that does look good on most women.
Bangs are always in style. Yet, not every woman can wear them. Bangs frame the face so make sure you are ready to have all eyes on you when you are sporting bangs. Blunt bangs are bangs that are cut straight across with no framing of the face. They are a showstopper for sure and super bold for some.
Wave and volume
Think big, cascading volumized waves. It is a bombshell style with a soft touch. Long bouncy locks with face-framing layers are also a version of the classic wavy style. Keeping it long with wave and volume never goes out of style.
An ultra-smooth style parted down the middle is super sleek. Using a flat iron to get hair perfectly straight is the key to this style. It is a classic and timeless cut.
This is another cut that has been in style forever. Ever since the turn of the century when women were getting bold with their fashion, the bob has been around to make a statement. It’s another result of the roaring 20s and beyond. It has been altered over the years but the idea is always the same.
Curls, curls, curls
There is nothing quite like a head full of curly hair. It’s why so many women were getting perms in the 1970s and 1980s. Everyone wants curly hair and this style never goes out of style! If you are blessed with natural curls keep them tight and free from frizz. It will keep your hair tamed and shiny.
Some cuts and styles will never go out of style and those depicted above are some of them. If you are looking to make a change to your hairstyle, talk to your hair stylist about keeping it traditional with one of these cuts but altering it just so that it is current and on trend to today’s looks.
