First of all, welcome to 2020! We can just feel that it’s going to be an amazing year full of finally achieving those New Year’s resolutions.
Okay well, maybe not going to the gym every day, but as the saying goes, “New year, new you!”.
One of the best ways to really freshen up your look is with a new haircut. Maybe a new hairstyle wasn’t on the agenda for 2020, but here are a few signs that it might be time to change your ‘do.
You wear it in a ponytail everyday.
We’ve all been there. You wake up determined you’re actually going to do your hair for work today.
You begin to curl it, and it doesn’t work out, so you get frustrated and throw it up in your trusty ponytail.
We’re not knocking the pony, we’re just saying if you wear it every day, it’s probably time to update your look into something that’s functional and stylish.
Your roots have turned into a bad balayage job.
Once upon a time, you had your hair coloured, perhaps a fun summer blonde, and eight months later you still haven’t touched up those roots. You tell yourself it doesn’t look so bad, it kind of looks like you meant to have is this way.
Your ends are so split, you call them “Patricia”.
Remember that movie from a few years ago called Split with the guy with all the personalities? That’s you and your split ends.
If you don’t get those split ends taken care of shortly, you’re going to have twice the number of hairs at the bottom than the top, and not in a good way. Time for a trim, Patricia!
You keep noticing other peoples’ great hair cuts.
Lay back on the couch my dear, Freud would say you’re projecting about also wanting to have great hair.
Better book your appointment ASAP, it’s time to give your friends hair envy.
You’ve been absent-mindedly saving hair posts on Pinterest.
A picture is worth a thousand words, and yours is saying “It’s time to get your hair done NOW!” approximately 125 times.
Your hairstyle hasn’t changed in over 5 years.
You’ve got to love Facebook/Snapchat/Instagram memories, reminding you of a simpler time, a skinnier time, that great vacation and oh… your hair has not changed since your best friend’s wedding five years ago.
While we’re firm believers in “if it’s not broken don’t fix it,” we also know that you’ve definitely become more sophisticated and stylish since powder purple dresses were in style.
Okay, so we’ve established that it’s time for a fresh haircut, what now?
Here are a few hair trends for 2020 to consider when you book your appointment.
Milk Chocolate Brown
Brunettes are trading in traditional blonde highlights for a more natural looking colour. The goal is to get a colour lighter than your root colour, but not blonde whatsoever.
This tone is also complementary to your face, giving it an instantly fresher and brighter look.
Hooray! Move over icy tones, it’s finally no longer taboo to have more golden tones in your blonde hair!
While we still love the icy tone, the trend for 2020 is more of a natural, sunny blonde.
Be sure to consult your hair stylist on how to ensure your beautiful blonde locks don’t turn brassy.
This year’s red direction is way away from the bold Jessica Rabbit look and headed back to nature, just like the rest of this year’s hair colour trends.
This colour trend in the red-head world contains auburn and coppery tones, creating a multidimensional and shimmering look.
It seems like you can’t open Instagram without someone pulling off an insanely cute bob, so it’s pretty safe to say it’s not going anywhere this year.
However, the bob is getting an edgy twist so that it’s more unkempt than in previous iterations. This is established with layers on the ends so it has a bit more of a deliberately messy look.
Your hair can be your greatest accessory – and it better be since you have to wear it every single day. If nothing else, we’ve given you a lot to think about, from naming your split ends Patricia to actually considering balayage.
Whatever you decide, the new year is always a great time for a hair refresh. At Urban Vanity, we’re here to help you feel like the best version of yourself.
Don’t wait five years, book your appointment now.
