New Year, New You!

Start the New Year with a new do. Here's what's trending for 2023 in hair. After long hair due to Covid lockdowns, many people have decided to cut their hair, but all hair lengths are in style. Here's what is trending in haircuts, whether you are looking to go short, medium, or long.

The Modern Shag

The barber Paul McGregor created the first shag haircut in the early 1970s, and it became widespread for men and women when celebrities like Joan Jett, Jane Fonda, and Rod Stewart started wearing them. This carefree haircut has made a comeback! The modern shag is choppy and textured but not as messy as the original. Add some curtain bangs for an extra updated look.

The Modern Mullet

Remember "Business in the front, party in the back"? If Joe Dirt is the first thing that came to mind, I know what you're thinking, but hold on and keep reading! First, a brief history lesson of the haircut that defined a decade. Although this hairstyle can be traced back to Tom Jones in 1965, the mullet's heyday was from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s. It was popular with both men and women. The ability to make the shorter front hair stand on end with a lot of hairspray and a blow dryer helped create the famous "big hair" look.

In 2023, the modern mullet is less extreme, incorporating a more gradual fade from short to long hair, giving it a more polished look.

The Mixie

The mixie is an audacious, short haircut that is a cross between the pixie and mullet. This short, rocker style includes bangs and shaggy hair pieces along the side of your face. The front tends to be shorter, with more length in the back, which is longer than a traditional pixie.

The Wolf Cut

The wolf cut is a longer-haired variation of the shag with longer hair in the back of your head. The choppy layers make the wolf cut a low-maintenance style with attitude.

The Butterfly

The butterfly cut is a beautiful, feminine, long-hair hairstyle with shorter layers starting just below your chin in the front and mid-length layers just below your shoulders. This style has longer front layers and a more gradual transition to the long hair in the back. This hairstyle is an update of the feathered hair of the 1970s and 1980s made popular by Farrah Fawcett.

The Bixie

Bixies, are a bob/pixie cross hairstyle. The bixie is an ear-to-chin-length bob that looks great on everyone and works with all hair types. For fine, thin hair, choose longer layers and use products to add volume. Have your pixie bob cut with or without bangs. Try face framing, bottleneck bangs. They flatter any face shape!
