12 Winter Hair Trends We’re Predicting In 2019

Locks that will light

With the turn of seasons comes the inevitable thought of change – change of weather, change of fashion (swapping bikinis for boots) and of course, changing up our hair! After months spent in the sunshine and salty water, our hair is usually in desperate need of some TLC and a trip to the salon – and thus begs the question, is it time for a new look?

If like us, you’ve got change on the mind, we’ve rounded up the 12 biggest trends in hair (think colour, cuts and styles) for winter 2019 to get you looking and feeling as fresh as a cool winter breeze (and a little inspiration to take to the hairdresser if you’re ready to commit!)

 1. Long hair is back in a big way!

Over your short bob and dreaming about being able to tie your hair up again? Then forgo the chop next time you’re at the hairdresser and embrace the length again…

2. French girl vibes

Yep, our fascination with the French never fades! Think natural looking colour but with serious depth (just like Australia L’Oréal Professionnel ambassador Olympia Valance).

3. Perfectly polished

 Now that summer is over, ditch the beachy, unruly waves (and ahem, frizz!) and think sleek sleek sleek – whether it’s straight or with a bounce or wave, the word is glamazon.

4. California copper

Try the hottest winter trend with a bright and fiery mix of copper/amber/bronze shades for serious depth of colour and wow factor.

5. The jawline bob

The bob is set to hit all new heights this season, the new bob is all about grazing the jawline (and those turtle necks) and lots of texture.

6. Half-up, half-down

If you’re after a little less commitment than a trip to the hairdresser, why not mix up how you style your hair with a sleek half-up, half-down look. Simple, yet chic.

7. Rich brunettes

For the brunettes, this winter it’s all about those rich, decadent dark chocolate vibes.

8. Curtain bangs

While this trend isn’t new by any means, it isn’t going anywhere any time soon. It’s less commitment than a full fringe (or perfect if you’re growing one out) and gives off serious cool-girl vibes.

9. Icy blondes

Channel Elsa from Frozen and embrace the cooler weather this winter with some serious icy vibes when it comes to your blonde. This look isn’t for the faint-hearted, and not to be tried at home, prepared to spend a few hours catching up on your Instagram feed in the salon chair.

10. Accessories

Another way to stay on trend without committing to a new cut or colour is accessories. Think embellished hair clips and chic school-girl bows.

11. Mid-lengths

If you are growing out your bob and you feel like you’re stuck in that awkward in-between phase, well you’re in luck because mid-lengths (or long lobs) are having a serious moment right now.


12. Side swept

 This season anyone who’s anyone is flipping it to the side – it’s the oldest trick in the book for transforming your style in seconds with zero commitment.
