What are now referred to as gender neutral haircuts are what used to be called “boyish.” And boyish haircuts have been around for a long time! Gender neutral haircuts vary, but usually expose the ears and the back of the neck. Keep scrolling for a look at some stylish haircuts that work for you whether you’re male or female.
A new year is a great time to check out new hairstyles. If you’re excited about trying something new with your hairstyle but you aren’t looking for a color job or a drastic chop, hairstyles with bangs might be just the inspiration you need. A hairstyle with bangs can give you just the right amount of change without feeling too drastic. Here are some ideas and things to consider if you’re thinking about cutting bangs.
Hairstyles With Bangs
You may think that bangs are only for people with long, wavy locks. But actually, bangs look great on a variety of hairstyles. You just need to take the time to consider your hair type and face shape, then ask for the right kind of bangs for you. Here are some ideas, as well as things to talk to your stylist about when you’re considering a hairstyle with bangs.
A light bang like this is perfect for you if your hair is long, but you often pull it up in a ponytail or bun. The light fringe is easy, especially if you embrace a bit of a messy look. If you prefer never to look “overdone,” then a face-framing fringe fits the bill.
Bangs that fall straight forward, with more of a blunt edge, are classic bangs. This bang works best if your face is oval-shaped, and your hair is long with plenty of volume to support the look. The downside to classic bangs is that frequent trims keep them looking their best.
For a thicker bang that blends more evenly into the sides of your hair, go for a tapered cut. Tapered bangs are more common because they work on a wider variety of face shapes.
Hairstyles with Longer Bangs
Some of us aren’t fully ready to make the jump from no bangs to full bangs, so this is where a longer bang comes in. Long bangs are easy to sweep to the side or part down the middle–a la Kate Middleton.
Long & Wispy
Not as long as the bangs you can sweep to the side or part down the middle, but longer and lighter so you have options for wearing them down or side swept.
If you thought bangs were one size fits all, now you know better! Which style bang is your favorite?

It might seem that you don’t have time for makeup, but you don’t need to spend unnecessary time glamming up with the whole nine yards. Just take 5 minutes–or less–to apply a little concealer if needed, plus some mascara and lip gloss. Mascara always makes a huge difference by itself. When you look tired, mascara just has a way of opening up those eyes and making them appear brighter. We’ve all got time for that!
We should all take time to brush our hair–really brush it–with a brush that will also give you a mini scalp massage. It has a way of making you feel great in under a minute.

Are you interested in learning the top hair trends for 2019? You’ve come to the right place! Today’s post has all the information you need. After you read it, you have only to decide which hair trends you want to rock for 2019. Get ready!
Big hair is back!
Believe it or not, big hair is back in a big way for 2019. In fact, according to celebrity stylist Chris Appleton, the bigger the better. Anyone with naturally curly hair deserves to take their place in the spotlight right about now. You get to really embrace the natural state of your hair and let all those curls shine! Amazon has products to help you make the most of your natural curls, including the best-selling DevaCurl One Conditioner.
Go silver instead of platinum.
Hair trends for 2019 include coloring with icy colors like silver. Don’t be afraid of going silver even if you are naturally dark and have dark eyebrows. The color contrast between dark eyebrows and light hair continues to be a top hair trend.
Top hair trends for 2019 dictate that having your stylist add layers to your hair is the way to go. The idea here is to let your hair look like it has texture. Don’t be afraid to let it look a little bit “undone”. Layers lend hair movement and interest, and generally help thick hair be easier to control. You can’t go wrong!
A rainbow of colors
Pops of color in the hair are part of the hair trends for 2019, especially pink. But you’re really not limited. Chat with your stylist to see which colors she thinks you can pull off best, and go for it.
Go a little shorter?
Why not? Blunt bobs are one of the hot hair trends for 2019. We’re already seeing a number of celebrities who have adopted the style, including Hailey Baldwin Bieber and Karlie Kloss. Many of us can get away with this style because it’s flattering for multiple face shapes! The length is easily adjusted to capitalize on your face shape, so talk with your stylist to get it just right for you.
