It’s a new year, which means new or evolved trends! If you’re like many of us, you already have a vision for a new you in the new year. It’s always a good idea to start the year with a new hairstyle.

Whether you’re looking for a significant change or a subtle step outside your comfort zone, 2023 is the year for good hair. See all the best 2023 hair trends before they hit your social feeds.

Blonde Bombshell

Go blonde or go home! Blonde was huge in 2022, but this time around, it’s high-maintenance, polished and expensive-looking.

Auburn Hair Colour

Red is the colour of the season this year. If blonde is not your thing, then opt for warmer tones like red, auburn, copper or anything in between. Let the experimentation begin. Don’t forget to tag us at #BellaNaijaBeauty.

The Bob

There’s no surprise that the bob remains a top hair trend year after year. After all, it’s less of a trend and more of a timeless haircut. Whether trimmed to the cheekbones, tucked in, or jaw-skimming, a bob is a haircut that will always be in style, not to mention super chic.

Fulani braids

A protective style that never gets old #Classic. Fulani braids were a huge hit last year and will trend again. You can go long or short, thick or thin, and braids give you the option of colour. You can elevate the braids with beads. You can either go monochrome or multi-coloured.

Passion Twists

Don’t get it twisted… or do! Passion twists are here to stay in the New Year. Lightweight, gentle-on-the-hair, bouncy, extra chic, what is no to love?

Barbie Ponytail

Like last year, the Barbie ponytail is sure to be a hit. What is a Barbie ponytail? Think of a Barbie pony as a high pony with a flick at the end, which adds even more drama and flair.

Wigs, Wigs, Wigs

Wigs are a great way to protect the hair while achieving trendy styles throughout the season. Short, long, coloured, curly and so on. The options are limitless.
