In 2019 we’ll see hairstyles from the past return and we will see some new and fun hairstyles take the stage. Everything from low maintenance bangs to 60s inspired fringe can be expected throughout the next year with some emerging fashion changes as well.

The biggest trend expected for 2019 is 60s-inspired hairstyles and clothing. This trend can be embraced by folks of all ages, too. Everything from fringe to neon bobs and Jackie Kennedy-inspired styles will be making a full comeback. Another trend that has never fully left is the 80s edge. So this calls for big, wide headbands, crazy beautiful colors and of course gorgeous blowouts and curls.


2019 will be the year for big hair accessories! Large clips, headbands and scarfs, diamond studded clips and more that were popular throughout the 90s will be making an appearance come spring.


The blunt 90s style bob, a style named after the bottom line due to the drama it creates, has already been seen on many of celebrities and social media influencers. Let’s face it. The bob isn’t going anywhere. So, don’t be afraid to try this style out when you’re shopping for wigs.

You may have already noticed the trend of top knots, but in 2019, we’ll see top knots transform into all kinds of crazy styles. You’ll see them in their traditional form, as well as lower on the head and mixed in with messy buns and braids. Speaking of braids – Neo Braids, or box braids, will be another trend to watch for. This type of style is always open for interpretation. You can add a braid to a long, luscious curly wig or scatter braids all throughout your wig, giving you more of a rebellious look. If you don’t want to take a stab at braiding, try a style that already has braids.

Bang, Bang!

Bangs can change any hairstyle either subtlety or dramatically depending on how they’re cut. Shorter bangs can be edgy, while longer bangs or fringe can frame the face nicely. In the upcoming year, we’ll see fringe bangs, longer bangs with messy buns, or bangs pulled back behind cute hair accessories. So, if you’ve always wanted to try a wig style with bangs, go for it!

Why gray is always on trend.

The negative association with gray hair is starting to become a thing of the past. Celebrities and people who are nowhere near the silver years are dyeing their gray or wearing gray wigs and extensions. Young women who are going gray prematurely are embracing the color and are even working to change society’s perception of it. And according to Allure Magazine, gray hair was predicted to be one of the biggest hair trends of 2018.

It’s a color that signifies wisdom. Some also believe it signifies an inability to commit. But if you ask me, it takes a pretty confident and committed person to pull off gray hair.

Have you been thinking about going gray? Get ready to turn heads. Lucky for you, you don’t have even have to bleach your hair to achieve that ideal gray. Thanks to CysterWigs, you can either ease into gray naturally or take the trend head on with styles and colors that are right for you.

Different tones of gray, interspersed subtly, offer new possibilities for wearing your hair. You can go for a platinum tone that teeters on blonde, you can go for black with hints of gray, you can try a brown peppered with gray or you can go for an ethereal white. And don’t forget about the alternative grays. If you prefer a funkier gray, try one with a fun mix of blue, silver and lilac tones.

There’s a gray out there that fits every mood or attitude. Don’t be afraid to have fun and play around with the different shades and tones. And experiment with different lengths, too. A silvery gray bob is a chic look for day or night. Or if you’re feeling wild and bold, go for a full mane of smoky locks. Whatever direction you go in, wear it with pride. Again, if you can pull this look off, you can pull just about anything off—and that opens the door to even more possibilities!
