The octopus haircut started popping up in early 2022, and it’s here to stay. “The shape of this cut resembles a classic shag and exemplifies the fine line where grunge meets glamour,” says Frédéric Fekkai, celebrity hairstylist and founder of Fekkai Salon. “Ask your stylist to cut wispy bangs and add layers to the top of the head, blending them in with the bottom length.” Remember to keep the ends long, like the legs of an octopus!

“The one-length bob is going to be super popular for 2023,” says Tommy Buckett, celebrity hairstylist and co-owner of salon Marie Robinson. I love this look because it suits most face shapes and is easy to style at home.”

Celebrity hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons, who has worked with celebrities like JLo and the Kardashians, says wispy bangs will be the bangs of choice this year. “Bangs have made a huge comeback recently, and wispy bangs are the perfect fit because they suit all face shapes and hair lengths,” he says. “Ask your stylist to cut longer pieces framing your face and make sure your bangs are shorter in the middle than on the sides to draw more attention to your face.”

Looking to take the plunge? 2023 is the year to do it because a short afro will be all the rage, says Fitzsimons. This short haircut has a variety of styling options. “For those with very curly or frizzy hair, this cut is perfect if you want to switch up your look,” he says. “It leaves enough hair to form finger waves or a deep side part to create a more dramatic look, yet it’s short enough to leave natural and emphasize the natural texture of your locks.”

Given the recent comeback of all the ’90s, we’re not surprised that a voluminous mid-length style “will be the haircut of 2023,” says celebrity hairstylist and Virtue ambassador Xavier Velasquez. “The midi is a universally flattering haircut that can be styled in many ways, from smooth and straight to voluminous, like a glamorous 90s model.”

The bowl cut you might remember as a kid takes on a shaggy twist, says Fekkai. “Ask your stylist for blunt bangs with rounded corners by cutting along the eyebrow, around the cheekbone and ending at the collarbone,” he says. “It’s similar to a bob cut with the addition of subtle layers added to create movement in your hair.”

This curly shag-meets-mullet haircut isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. “I now see the wolf cut on curly hair types, and I love it,” says Gabrielle Henderson, a professional Nioxin hairstylist. “I get a lot of requests in the salon for lots of volume at the top and more length at the bottom, and this haircut is the perfect result.” If you want to give it a try, grab a Keke Palmer page and wear a wig.

For those who aren’t afraid to experiment a little with their hair, try baby bangs this year. “Baby bangs are making a comeback,” says Sofia Perez, professional hairstylist at Nioxin. “This cut is a great way to change up your current style, and there are beautiful variations, from textured and graceful side bangs to bold horizontal lines.”

Soft bangs are another way to try out bangs without committing to anything drastic. “Soft bangs are a hot trend for 2023, with celebrities like Anne Hathaway, Lily Collins and Phoebe Dynevor taking their own spin on the classic,” says Velasquez.

If you still want to keep your length but add more body and volume to your hair, you’ll love a butterfly haircut, which consists of long feathery layers – lots and lots of them. “It’s a nice, modern take on the popular ’90s look that adds glamor and volume,” says Fitzsimons.
