Every decade has its defining hairstyles. The ‘60s had the bouffant, the beehive and big teased hair; the ‘70s had disco hair, centre-parts and Farrah Fawcett waves and the ‘80s had the perms, side ponies and mullets. In the ‘90s, who can forget “The Rachel”? The cut made famous by Jennifer Aniston on Friends was everywhere. When we entered the 2000s, we all loved flipped-out ends, side bangs and surfer girl curls inspired by the stars of hit shows like The OC. And then came the 2010s; the decade of balayage, the long bob and the high pony, and when hair extensions gained mass popularity. Perfect healthy, long waves were trending consistently.
What will be the defining hair trends and moments of the 2020s? Expert stylists predict natural, yet bold, will be the theme of the next 10 years; natural highlights, natural textures and bold accessories and styles. We suppose we’ll have to wait and see but based on what we saw in the first month of 2020, it’s going to be good! Have a look at some of our favourite hair moments of the first month of the new decade. What trends do you think will leave their legacy on the 2020s?
Chloe Coleman at the 2020 SAG Awards
The young star rocked her natural texture contrasted with a sleek finish and stunning accessories to complete the look. Natural texture, plus bold accessories… maybe the expert stylists are on to something!
Michelle Williams at the 2020 Sag Awards
Michelle’s asymmetrical bob, deep side part and eye-catching accessory was reminiscent of Old Hollywood Glamour, and we loved it.
Lizzo at the Grammy Awards
Lizzo was nominated for basically everything, and her glam squad gave her a look that says, "I'm here to win." Her long hair was gently curled in a soft Old Hollywood style that looked stunning on the talented performer.
Priyanka Chopra at the Grammys
Priyanka Chopra served up major Cher vibes at the Grammys, thanks to her stylist Harry Josh, and Great Lengths extensions! 10 rows of 22-inch GL Tapes were applied and blended seamlessly with her natural hair.
Jennifer Lopez at the Golden Globes
J Lo’s stylist, Chris Appleton, called this look “a queen of the night vibe." Slicked-back with an oversized braided bun stole the show on the Golden Globes red carpet. One thing is for sure for the 2020’s; Jennifer Lopez will continue to be a hair icon.
J.Lo at the Golden Globes, again
J Lo’s second look at Golden Globes was just as stunning, if not more, than her first. For the after party, she undid her intricate braided bun and let her strands flow free in a wavy half-up ‘do that showed off her beautiful colour.
Margot Robbie at the Golden Globes
Middle-parted, medium-length haircuts will be all the rage in 2020, and Margot Robbie’s red-carpet look at the Golden Globes might be the reason why. Her collar bone length hair was worn center-parted in surfer girl waves. Combined with her dark roots, the look was effortlessly stylish.
Salma Hayek at the Golden Globes
Another Great Lengths red-carpet appearance. Celebrity hairstylist, Jennifer Yepez installed GL Tapes to create this long, classic look with gorgeous soft waves and rich dimension. We’re going to confidently predict hair extensions will continue to be popular this decade.
