Autumn/Winter Fashion shows have a new address: Instagram. As the world is accustoming to the new normal, so are our sensibilities. Now, we look at beauty through a different lens. Even our trends have gone from being flights of fancy to frugal necessities.

Take all the trending hairstyles of the year, for instance. Hair cuts are more prominent. Color and styling have taken a backseat. Meaning, if they can be done at home, they make the cut to trend. Even our celebrities seem to follow the same diktat. Only difference is, they sure know how to make utilitarian styles look chic. And those are tricks we fervently look out for.

Beauty Book has scavenged through the internet and traced all the leading autumn/winter hairstyles of 2020, just for you. Consider this your trend forecast for the season.

Top 6 Winter Hair Trends To Go For

1. The Bronde Palette

If there is a hair-color combination that’s stayed with us through thick and thin, it’s this one. Think of a scenario and bronde highlights have saved the day. Want to fade off your previous color? Bronde gets you there smartly. Want to try the outlandish ombre trend? Start small with bronde. Care to accentuate your complexion? Uhm, bronde again. It’s transcended seasons, styles and even idiosyncratic sensibilities. This Fall, take a sip (and a cue) of your favorite autumnal cuppa ‘Blonde Espresso’ and get trending.

2. Smooth, Glass Hair

Think poker straight hair with high-intensity shine. Hair that’s so glossy and silky smooth, your bae can see his reflection on it. No, don’t roll your eyes. Because this trend can give all your keratin treatments a run for its money. After cleansing and moisturizing your hair, add heat protection along with shine boosters. Ideally, you should opt hair sprays, so that you can spritz some on your hairbrush, and run it through while straightening your locks. Finish the look off with an anti-frizz or shine mists.

3. The 70s Feathered Shag

Remember Farrah Fawcett’s iconic shag hairdo? Then Jane Fonda, Meg Ryan and Winona Rider did it, later Jennifer Aniston got associated with it as her ‘The Rachel’ (F.R.I.E.N.D.S) hairstyle gained international stardom and in recent times we’ve got Taylor Swift donning the ’70s feathered style. Some conservatives prefer doing just the bangs and that’s alright to keep up with the trend as well. We’re talkin’ Hilary Duff, Maya Hawke and the like. But this season, it’s taken a modern approach. Lived-in asymmetry cuts across all hair lengths and types (namely straight, wavy or curly). All you need to do is to ask you stylist to chop off layers from the top and crown and to work themselves downwards.

4. Big Blow-Dry Energy

That flippy high ponytail JLo has been flaunting? Well, it’s been trending the world over. The big blow-dry effect is gaining momentum with our classic bob, voluminous beehives, bouncy layers and so on. In fact, some even give it a go with the glassy hair trend. These days, you’ve got to gear up on your blow-drying skills to bring home that salon effect. Try whatever floats your boat; from heat rollers to foolproof hair dryers. Remember, always start with your bangs, then gradually move on section-by-section. And come what may, you have to complete your look with finishing spray. Better if it has a texturizing effect.

5. One Length, One Cut

Contradictory to the trending shag, the one-length hair cut is also making waves. Of them, the shorter lengths are seeming more popular. Preferably chin lengths. Call it the cry for healthy hair during the pandemic? Even celebrities like Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma have emulated the one-length hair cut trend. Although, this trend was a desperate measure in our desperate times. Chopping off a few inches ourselves became di rigueur. And from the looks of it, most of us hit bull’s eye.

6. Pixie Times Two

Is it even possible for the pixie to get any shorter? The answer is a surprising yes. In fact, it’s gotten edgier and wilder than ever. It’s like we’ve been exposed to a whole new world of pixie styles. There are shaggier, spikier versions than there are those who like to pair it with longer side locks or angular hair divides. Some even take the pains to blow dry their teeny-weeny spikes for a high-glam vibe. Then there’s experimentalists who like to go big with highlights; anything from balayage to platinum blondes. Everyone from Emilia Clarke to Zendaya have been spotted donning this style
