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
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.

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
