2018 is here already. And there is no better reason to welcome the New Year with new haircuts for women that are worthy of an experiment. Whether it is working bob with fringe, undone wet look, short shaggy cuts, the New Year will give you the perfect opportunity to redefine your mane story.
1. Undone Wet Look:
Wet hair look has been doing the rounds for quite some time but there’s a new twist that is going to come up in 2018. All that we have seen till now is poker slick hair, but the new haircut style is more loose and tousled. It is a lot softer and less harsh than the poker straight hair.
2. Bouncy, Blow Dried Hair:
Bouncy, blow-dried hair made a re-entry on the fashion runway recently. This glamorous hairdo gets a big nod since the retro 80s disco themed look is trending, so having the big bouncy hair back is no surprise. This is one of the chicest haircuts for long hair. It is more manageable as it is textured with volume with a soft flick front.
3. Natural Textured Hair:
2017 has not got over its curly and natural textured hair obsession and amazingly it’s not going anywhere in 2018 too. Except that the curls are getting bigger in the coming year.

But if you are longing for one of the most undefined medium length haircuts, then this is perfect for you. Run your fingers through the hair to get the finished look.

2018 is bringing back the low and loose ponytail with the scrunchie. If done in a cool way with the hair kept loose and low, then the style looks amazingly gorgeous. An air-dried texture will bring out an undeniable style. Use the throwback scrunchie to secure loose ponytails for a retro look. For a modern look, avoid using a big scrunchie, patterned or metallic scrunchie. Just make sure your low ponytail is smooth and sleek. Always wear this romantic and edgy ponytail at the nape of your neck.
5. Schoolgirl Plaits:
2018 is bringing on the braids but with a twist. The latest hair styleis about achieving an undone and messy look. Until this time around, braids were symmetrical, neat, and pristine. But in the coming year, it is going to be the opposite-loose and messy. You can also make use of simple hair elastic like hair bobbles for a more classy finish.
6. Bob Cut With Fringe:
Brace yourself to see plenty of bob haircut with fringes in 2018. No matter what your face shape is, the new trend is surprisingly going to be wearable for all. Instead of the blunt cut block fringe, the new trend is messier and looks undone. The new look is way more casual. You can get to decide whether to keep the fringe below your eyebrows or tuck it behind your ears. For the ultimate look, go for a lighter fringe because a block fringe can feel heavy with a bob.

You can also give an extra body to the hair by using your fingertips for a tousled finish. This is one of the popular haircuts perfect for medium to long curly hair.
11. Sleek Chignon:
To achieve this really neat look, you have to start with the air-dried slick straight hair. Divide hair horizontally and apply a shine-boosting serum. Pull the top hair into a ponytail and gather the bottom half. Twist the ponytail into a chignon and pin it all the way towards the front of your head. Brush out the sections to gently undo any tangles and achieve a sleek chignon.
12. Side-Parted And Twisted Bun:
Let’s face it, buns are pretty basic. There are days when you are too lazy to wash your hair, so in this case, a knot or a bun seems to be the obvious choice of hairstyle. But it is time to glam up things. In the coming year, you will see a lot of hair cutting styles perfect for females who want to try the soft twisted bun look with a side-parting. To get this style, part your hair down the side and then pull your hair into a low ponytail. Give your hair a loose twist and pull it around the ponytail. Pin the twisted bun as flat to your head using U pins.
13. Cotton Candy Top Knot:
The dramatic cotton candy top knot style is back. It is created by backcombing the hair bun and gently smoothing it over back down. This is simple to create and can be worn for all occasions. For recreating the look, you can brush the hair back into a ponytail. For a sleek effect, brush the hair back and use a hairspray for added shine. Tie the hair using a hair tie. Gently backcomb the ponytail and push the hair downwards. Continue backcombing until all strands are combed well. Twist the ponytail forward and continue twisting as you wrap the hair around the bun. Pin around the base of the bun.
14. Braids With Fresh Flower Adornment:
Fresh flower adornments are the next best hair accessories for 2018. This hairdo is not for weddings alone. You don’t have to make complicated floral hair arrangements. Even a single flower variety along your hair ends is enough to make a striking statement. Next, think about how to arrange the flowers. A centered or off-center placement is ideal for floral hair accessories. But you can be experimental and try and arrange a grouping of large flowers at one end, and cascade small flowers down the side. You are free to work your ways.
15. Neat Middle Parting:
Do you prefer to keep your hair out of your face? Then this hair cuttery is for you. You can easily make use of hair clips or clear hair elastic to manage your hair. For this style, leave your hair open or pin the top section up before tying it at the back.
16. Bowl Cut:
The bowl cut is back with a bang. The 90s inspired tomboy-cut is one of the most evergreen short haircuts for women and is relatively familiar to all of us.
