THIS SEASONS LATEST TRENDS

Kicked off by A-listers such as Miley Cyrus, the shag is set to be a must-have this year. “This cut is going to be seen everywhere in 2023,” says Nader. It’s also versatile in terms of length and fringe extremes (opt for a micro fringe or the longer fringe of the wolf shag).
A blend of the bob and the pixie, the bixie cut (like Jenna Ortega’s crop) is longer and more uniform. A texturising product will add piecey femininity.
Girl of the moment Emma Corrin has helped revive this ’70s-inspired hair trend, which has been made modern by blending the mullet and pixie cuts into the one style. It has shorter bangs, but there is length at the back, making it edgy and pretty and the same time. “Oozing feminity, this Brit-inspired haircut is low maintenance,” says Nader. “If your hair has lots of texture, this is a great style for you.” Just add styling lotion for greater manageability.
A blunt, thick fringe can change your hair look in an instant. Case in point: Lily Collins’ fringe in Emily in Paris. “Her full bangs and sculptural waves look glamorous,” says Nader. The downside? “This hairstyle will need some upkeep to maintain that healthy bounce,” adds Nader, who suggests keeping up the haircut appointments every six weeks.
Inspired by Swedish content creator Matilda Djerf and ’90s supermodels, bombshell hair has returned with a bang via the butterfly cut. Pulled off by actors, Sydney Sweeney and Olivia DeJonge, this look involves both face-framing layers and long feathery layers, meaning you’ll be able to keep your length while adding plenty of body and volume.
“It doesn’t matter what shade you are, an in-salon gloss will give strands added radiance and health,” says Nader. “A clear gloss will also make your complexion pop and it works brilliantly for hair that feels brittle or rough on the surface.” Supplement with a leave-in product to add hydration between salon visits.
