According to celebrity hairstylist Cervando Maldonado, the 80’s are coming back in style and Debbie Harry’s iconic androgynous bob is the perfect hairstyle for a drastic change.

Celebrity hairstylist Justine Marjan who has worked with the likes of Ashley Graham and Olivia Culpo is all about pairing bangs with bobs which is a very adaptable hairstyle.

“For every kind of haircut, there will always be different variations depending on your hair type and face shape. If you are opting for fringe, I suggest blow-drying it forward right out of the shower to avoid any cowlicks in the front.”

“To finish, I recommend using the Ghd Air Professional Performance Hairdryer ($199) and the R+Co Round Brush ($85) to direct the hair toward the face, and then finish with the cool setting on the dryer,” says Marjan.

For a round face shape, a flattering hairstyle would be a longer variation of a blunt cut just like Kim Kardashian has been wearing lately.

“For super-blunt cuts, I recommend accentuating the tips of your strands by running a flat iron just over the ends for a polished and refined finish,” Marjan explains.

4. The close crop

According to Nick Stenson, short cropped textured styles (à la Maria Borges) are coming back to style and are the perfect choice for anyone who is feeling courageous and bold.

All the stylist agree that shoulder length hair with shiny, straight, and little movement at the ends is going to be the biggest trend in 2018.

Maldonado also agrees on the trend: “I feel since we are seeing so many super-blunt bobs and lobs that are strictly one length, one of the trends this year will be to incorporate face-framing bangs and maybe a subtle hint of layers around the front. This will lend a fresher take for 2018.”

According to Marjan chin-grazing bobs will be everywhere. Her expert styling suggestion: Reach for a flat iron like Ghd’s Platinum Professional Performance Styler, $249, to enhance strands with imperfect waves, and try taking your part a tad off-center.

7. The grown-out crop

This is the recommended hairstyle for keeping your natural texture and curls but it’s still a close crop with a lot of volume.
