Subtlety has clearly taken a back seat in beauty this year. We still have the last quarter of 2019 to go through and we have already seen some of the biggest hair trends (quite literally, too!) flooring the beauty world. From exaggerated bow accessories to OTT ponytails to gelled wisps sculpted artistically on the forehead, experimental and overstated hair trends are skyrocketing, and how! Take a look at five such ‘haute’ hair trends and decide for yourselves if big is really better. 

 

Go big or go home

Go big or go home

We saw it on the runways and again at the Met Gala. Celebrities like Deepika Padukone and Lily Collins sported voluminous hair with a sky-high bouffant. The big poufy hair was embellished with statement hair accessories and, boy, did it take our breath away.

 

Top knot-ch

Top knot-ch

Last year, it was the messy knotted bun with a sleek front, this year the tables have been turned. Your basic messy top knots have been replaced by a chicer and cooler version of itself and is now teamed with wispy baby hair to frame the face. 

 

High on headbands

High on headbands

Otherworldly bedazzled headbands have already taken over the internet and have become a cult favourite. Channel your inner Blair Waldorf and take your pick from padded, studded or pearl headbands to add a not-so-subtle touch of glam.

 

Sleek and straight

Sleek and straight

Curls are so yesterday! This year it’s all about keeping things straight, super straight to be precise. According to the trend gurus, long and glossy poker straight hair that almost looks like glass is what we are going to keep seeing.

 

Shades of grey

Got grey hair? Embrace it and rock it as the trend reports suggest that ash grey is one of the biggest hair colour trends of the year. Get the salt and pepper look by getting silver highlights or go for the bold and gorgeous global grey.
