While the 80s will continue to dominate hair trends—see: undercuts, slicked-back looks, and scrunching (yes, scrunching)—there’s a whole lot more going on this summer as well.
“People all over the world are inspired by the same looks on Instagram; so now they need to work a lot harder to stand out,” says Ricardo Dinis, Aveda Global Artistic Director, Hair Cutting. “So now we’re seeing people sporting all kinds of styles, which ultimately has led to a broader definition of what it means to have beautiful hair.”
Some of the trends Ricardo predicts will continue to go strong through the summer include:
Bobs: “It’s the go-to for people who want a ‘safe’ change,” says Ricardo. “What I love about it is that, depending on how it is styled, it can match any personality and lifestyle, from artsy to mom. It’s also great because it works for any hair texture.”
Deep side parts: “This is also a very 80s look. But it’s nice because it works on hair of any length and texture,” says Ricardo.
