Every new year, many women and men come to our hair salon seeking advice on new hair styles, and want to make sure they look as fresh, stylish and as modern as they can. Since 2020 is around the corner, we’ve decided to put together what we’ve found to be the top 10 most popular hair styles for 2020, and the following years.
So let’s get to it.
The shag hairstyle is a variable layered and unisex hair style created by the barber Paul McGregor. It’s considered the rock ‘n’ roll hair style and has been adopted wither naturally or through styling by many popular artists and musicians. The shag cut has been around for at least 30 years, and continues to be a popular choice for woman looking for a change that’s easier to manage, casual looking and provides a decent amount of texture.
The shag cut can be styled into short, medium length and long hair and each shag cut can look original different than the others.
Top shag styles include:

The 60s Flip is an attractive vintage cut with a virtually flat top, with curled end, and finished with a strong-hold hair-spray. It’s a style that was popular during the 50s and 60s, and even before then. For best results, you should have medium to long hair, and generally use a 1.5 inch iron to create more meaningful curls.
The 60s flip is an iconic retro hairstyle that was extremely popular with people like Farrah Fawcett, Jackie Kennedy, Raquel Welch and Jane Fonda. Despite how long this style has been around, and how old-fashioned it may appear, each year more and more woman are giving the 60s flip and try. It’s easy to maintain and doesn’t look all out of place or get ruined if it’s windy out.
The flip looks great for all hair colours and is a perfect way to style your hair for formal or special events.
The Half-Up/Top Knot (aka the half-bun) is usually worn by woman just after they get out of bed, but lately it’s become such a popular hair style that you can see women everywhere wearing it. The the half-up-half-down and the top knot was developed by Margot Robbie and if you see a great bun, you have to give her credit for it.
Here’s how to do it
1. Mix three pumps of shine luxe oil (or other similar product) with hair creme, and then apply a generous amount to the sides and top of your hair
2. Start blowdrying, and while casually doing so, rake through your hair with your fingers in an up and backwards motion
3. Once your hair is shiny and feels soft, just grab the crown of your hair and turn it into a mini-topknot and secure in place with bobby pins
4. Let the back of your hair tumble down naturally behind your ears
Almost any woman can pull off the Sleek Wet Look hairstyle whether you have think or thin hair, or if it’s short or long. There are virtually tens, and maybe even hundreds of different wet look hairstyles you can go with, and it all depends on which style you choose and how sleek you want your hair to look.
You can choose a wet-and-sleek:
Everyone loves long locks and sometimes there’s just no beating them. They can be curly, straight or wavy, but whichever style you choose you won’t go wrong.
Long-lock hair styles have been around since the beginning of time, and if you’ve been lucky enough to be able to let your hair grow long, you know what it feels like to have so many options.

If your hair is short, don’t worry! If you can find a hair stylist that has mastered the art of hair extensions, at a very reasonable price, you’ll be able to show off your long and stylish locks too! These days there are so many options when it comes to hair extensions that it doesn’t really matter how long your hair is.
There was a time when no woman wanted their roots to show but today it’s a hole different story especially if you’re going with the two-toned look.
It’s a simple style where your roots are dark and generally match the colour of your brows, and you colour the longer ends of your hair the colour of your choice.
The typical colour combinations of the two-toned hair style is dark roots with blonde ends, but in 2020 the options are endless! Just get your stylist to blend out the top of your hair to a ultra-bright blonde or silvery grey, and dye your roots dark.

If you have strong curls, or very straight hair, you might want to consider the beauty of the light-waves hair style. With light waves, you can give your hair a completely brand new makeover, surprise your friends and pretty much wow everyone that knows you with your new wavy hair style.
Light waves – aka ‘barely there waves‘ are totally in for 2020, and have been making their way into one of the most popular hair styles for the past 5 years – just ask Kristen Bell! She’s been sporting her half-and-half waves for a few years now, and she’s never looked better!
Barely there waves are super simple to style, and you almost don’t even need a stylist to have them. Grab your flat iron and create a few gentle waves by twisting your iron as you pull it through your hair. It takes minutes minutes and there’s no need for extra gels or creams. With the right professional cut you’ll look like you just walked out of a hair salon every time you leave the house!
Midi Cuts are almost the perfect hair style for every woman. Why? Its not a short cut which some woman just detest, and it’s not a long cut where you have to do tons of maintenance. It’s an in between hair-cut that’s just the perfect length to will allow you to add virtually every extra styling options you desire to it.
For the midi cut, your stylist will aim to give you a cut that reaches just above your collarbone, or right on it.
The midi cut can be styled straight on one day, curly on the other, wet-and-sleek on the weekends, and choppy waves for special occasions – the choice is all yours. The mid-cut is the single best hair-cut for every face shape, and gives you an amazingly authentic appearance.
Don’t be shy, go short. The cropped pixie cut is definitely still in style and will be beyond 2020. The cropped cut has been popularized as mainly a male cut but the girls are doing it too!
It takes a little time to get used to a pixie cut especially if you usually have long hair, but if you’re patient (you’ll have to be since you chopped off most of your hair) washing and drying and styling are going to be a breeze compared to when you had long hair. What a time saver! It does take a bit to get it right like with any great hair style but the time it takes is substantially shorter.
Get ready for the compliments because short pixie cuts put all the focus on your face but if you’re a bit self conscious just take a look at these beautiful pixie cuts by some of your favourite celebrities.
If you really want to go wild and show off your inner fairy in 2020, but really don’t want all the work, ask your hair stylist to crop it off!
We couldn’t have a top 10 popular hair styles for 2020 article without mentioning bangs – that would be ludicrous! Bangs are definitely still making a major come back and are having their time in the limelight.
Although woman have had bangs for thousands of years, they became really popular in the 1930s as they were the choice cut for Louise Brooks. In modern times they became popular again in the mid 1960s, slightly faded out in the 1970s, made a small comeback in the 1980s, virtually disappeared in the 1990s and early 2000s, but over the past decade they’ve become the popular choice for women of all ages.
Bangs are for anyone that wants a change but doesn’t want to go all out with a new hair cut. The popularity of bangs come and go like the wind but there’s no doubt that in recent years they’ve made a comeback, and will remain quite a popular hair style in 2020.
