Side-partings have made a remarkable comeback since they were ridiculed for being “cheugy”. Now everyone (Kim Kardashian, Zendaya, Megan Fox and Laura Harrier to name a few) seems to be firmly back on board with modern spins that feel wearable and current. As with many other Y2K trends from the early 2000s, “the side-parting’s renaissance will be in full swing next year,” says Nicole Petty, hair expert at Milk + Blush. And there’s so many ways you can wear it, whether it’s tossed, mussy and slightly grungy, or glam and voluminous, or slick and sleek.
“I see a deep side parting as power hair,” says top hairstylist and Babyliss ambassador, Syd Hayes. You can style it with “sleek straight glass-like hair and super shine,” he says, or “big curls and attitude. My key tools for these would have to be the BaByliss 9000 Cordless Straightener for the sleek straight look and a BaByliss Tight Curls Wand for the big curls look.”
Layers and face-framing
Heading into 2023, we still want the oomph, body and texture that a layered cut can give. Searches for “messy haircut” have increased and are set to dominate into next year. “Choppy layers and shaggy cuts are just some of the messy cuts and styles that can work for every hair type and texture,” says Nicole. “It’s all about making styles look effortlessly put together, leaving pieces of hair loose around the front of the face and adding volume to the top of the head,” she explains.
And, “with the popularity of the bouncy blowout in the past year, face framing is set to be bigger still in 2023,” says Laura Elliot, head of education at haircare professionals Salon Promotions. “Feathered looks, curtain bangs and long layering are all face framing cuts that are on the grow. Bounce and texture will be prominent next year, with a desire amongst clients for naturally healthy-looking locks.” As for how to make it work for you, “consider all the ways in which you like to wear your hair,” says Laura. “If you like to be able to scrape it all back at once, opt for longer layers as opposed to a shorter choppier fringe that will sit permanently on the face and brow.”
