Trendy haircuts 2023: layering, short length and bangsBy Vika https://pictolic.com/en/article/trendy-haircuts-2023-layering-short-length-and-bangs
The times when one or two trends ruled the ball for a whole year, or even several, are in the past. Thanks to social networks, trends, and with them microtrends, appear almost every week and often just as quickly disappear from our field of vision. This applies to everything - fashion for certain items of clothing, jewelry, makeup, and, of course, haircuts. Making an appointment with a hairdresser after watching a tape of banned and not only social networks is not a good idea. Perhaps in a month, there will be no trace of the trend, but you will be admiring the strange haircut in the mirror for a long time to come. Our advice is not to lash out, but to give the new trend time to live and see where it will be after a while. And only then go for cardinal transformations in their appearance.
Last year (like the year before last) saw a resurgence of trends from the 80s and 90s but under more modern names. So, the mullet haircut with minimal changes became an “octopus”, and a voluminous hairstyle in the style of Farah Fossett became a “butterfly”. The bob has gained particular popularity in its various variations - over the past year it has been worn by Selena Gomez, Kourtney Kardashian, Emma Chamberlain, and others.
The trend for "animal" haircuts, bobbing, and layering will continue this year. True, now their length will be minimal. According to Pinterest forecasts for 2023, the popularity of short hair will increase strongly. Therefore, below are seven haircuts that you will soon see everywhere.
1. Cropped bob
Bob is one of those classic haircuts that never goes out of style. Only the trend for one or another hair length and hairstyle changes. So, if last year was the time of a smooth bob with an even cut, then 2023 can be called the year of the natural texture of the strands and length to the chin. Curly, wavy, straight - the haircut will look harmonious with any type of hair, which is why it is so versatile.

For the past few years, the "shaggy" haircut, or its more familiar name, the shag, has been appearing on trend lists every year. As with the bob, only the length and shape change. In 2023, the familiar “potty” shape will become a modern version of the step. In foreign magazines, it is called more euphoniously - bowl cut and mushroom (that is, "bowl" or "mushroom"). True, the length to the chin will be relevant, and not at the level with the bangs.

4. Layered haircut
Layering, layering, and once again layering is the main trend in hairstyles of the last few years. The so-called tree from which the roots of the popularity of haircuts such as mullet (sloppy layers in the style of the 80s), "Rachel" (neater, smoother layers), "butterfly" (volumetric layers, like Farrah Fawcett from the 70s) grow ).
5. Barely noticeable bangs
6. The popularity of bangs is also not going away. Especially one that gently flows into the overall length of the hair and at the same time frames and contours the face. This variant is a mixture of curtain bangs and Jane Birkin bangs. It suits almost any oval of the face, and any length of hair - from medium and very long to short, and also gives the image a light and airy look.

The 80s bob is a haircut born out of the popularity of the vintage mullet and shag. They triumphantly returned to the list of trends back in 2020, and now every year they receive new variations. The 80s style bob is a medium-length bob that blends the grown-out bangs with the layering of the rest of the hair. It can be made both shorter and longer with strands sliding over the shoulders.

Another variation of the layered haircut that emerged after TikTok’s “jellyfish” and “cobra” is the “octopus.” It resembles a classic cascade, but with slight differences. The bulk of the hair remains in the upper layers, forming the body of an octopus, and the remaining length resembles tentacles (hence the name of the haircut).

Fashion for layering cannot last forever. Therefore, those who, on the wave of popularity of the step, mullet, and “octopus”, made these haircuts, will gradually strive for the same length. Moreover, hair stylists say that this trend will begin as early as 2023. Lovers of straight hair with an even cut, you can consider that your time has almost come!
