3 Breakout Haircut Trends That Will Be Huge In 2020

As January finally draws to a close, many of us are looking forward the new month ahead. And what better way is there to start a new chapter than to chop off some dead weight with a brand new haircut?

Interestingly enough, the latest hair trends — short, clean, high-impact cuts — are perfect for starting fresh. Whether you find your inspiration in a shaggy fringe, a modelesque pixie, or a timeless, jaw-grazing bob that looks good on everyone, you'll find 10 ways to start fresh, ahead.

The Jawline Bob


The bob length for 2020 will stop exactly at the jawline. According to seasoned celebrity stylist Garren, the look should be crisp and clean. "The blunt bob should cut like a razor, right at the jaw," he explains. Avoid any severe layering and the shape will sharply highlight your neckline and jaw like a strong and symmetrical frame around the face.
The cool thing about a short bob, cut in a blunt manner, is that the styling opportunities are endless. Give it bouncy volume or a sleek, shiny finish, then part it down the middle or toss it to one side.
If your hair texture is curly or wavy, and you want a more lived-in shape to match, talk to your stylist about a slight A-line slant.

The Gamine Pixie


We're eagerly awaiting the pixie's comeback in the new year. Take a pointer from Kaia Gerber, who's been progressively taking her bob haircut shorter and shorter. The model's gone from a chin-length cut to a high cheekbone-grazing sweet spot Garren calls "the gamine pixie" — a play on the British term for boy-ish — which he predicts is on its way to becoming a 2020 trend.
The reason why Garren sees a variation of the pixie chop taking off in the new year? "It signifies a sort of freedom," he explains. "A dramatic break from excess length."

Of course, a super-short cut doesn't need to be a 2020 impulse. You can always try a wig to experiment with a shorter style.
A short and shaggy vibe — heavy on the top, tapered on the sides — is equal parts edgy and chic.

Shag Fringe


The '70s-inspired shaggy fringe is back for 2020, according to editorial stylist and Oribe educator Mandee Tauber. "It's all about the fresh, textured movement of shag bangs," she explains. "It's a cool add-on to a cut of any length." If you have long hair — and don't want to go short — pull 2020 style inspiration from Selena Gomez, who recently stepped out in London with a long, gradually-layered cut, complete with bangin' curtain fringe.
Again, if you're on the fence, try a clip-in fringe as a trial — it's all the fun, none of the long-term commitment.
Fashion girls love a piece-y shag fringe because it works as a built-in accessory.
