2020: Popular Women’s Hairstyles

  1. A-Line bob – This soft bob is a little longer in the front than in the back. It’s a low-maintenance cut that works great for round and oval faces.
  1. Asymmetrical bob – Typically, it’s a short bob above the jawline on one side, with a mid-length cut falling just above the shoulder on the other side. Add more flair with a deep side part.
  1. Bronde – Made for all the women who can’t decide if they want to go dark or light, this look features brunette hair on top with blonde highlights and often blonde tips, too.
  1. Choppy layers – While recent trends have largely moved away from layers, the edgy look achieved with choppy shoulder-length layers and bangs is a definite exception for 2020.
  1. Dramatic curls – The intense look created by tight curls in voluminous hair is strongly reminiscent of a popular look of the ’70s, and it’s surging in popularity heading into 2020.
  1. Fade to blonde – Here’s another of the trending women’s hairstyles for 2020 for those who can’t choose between light and dark. It’s brown at the roots, transitioning gradually to blonde at the tips by incorporating wheat and honey tones along the way.
  1. Lob – That would be a long bob, which ideally hits the collarbone. It’s a good option for women who like the look of a bob, but who want more texture and the ability to wear their hair up or down.
  1. Long layers framing the face – A big, beach-inspired look, long face-framing layers with a solid baseline are becoming increasingly popular due to their wow factor.
  1. Mia Wallace bob – This is the famous ‘do that Uma Thurman sported in Pulp Fiction. She made the look all the rage in the mid ’90s, and it’s coming back in a big way in 2020.
  1. Money piece – This look uses foils or lightening to create a bright, face-framing pop of color, and it’s great for adding dimension and fun.
