More intense workouts, better hair habits, faster text replies—it's all part of the "New Year, New You" package we're still unwrapping. But if there's one resolution we're ready to keep, it's staying ahead of the tress trends, and adopting a fresh new 'do when need be—and what better time than now to spruce things up? Here with ideas on how to breathe new life into classic styles and cuts is the mane maestro herself, Jen Atkin. Keep reading for her 2018 hair trend forecast, including the haircut she predicts will make a comeback, the hair accessories we can expect to see everywhere, and the best Instagrams to follow for novel cut and color ideas.

OUAI fringe topknot Jen Atkin New Years hairWhat hairstyles do you predict will make a comeback in 2018? 

Wavy or curly hair with a fringe! I’m all about that vibe.

What haircuts do you think we’ll see more of? 

I think bobs are still in and will continue to be in for this year. If you’re into it, then go for it! I’m all about taking risks when it comes to hair. Cut it off, it always grows back!


What everyday hair accessories are going to be popular? 

The scrunchie. I’m seeing more and more them lately since the 90’s are having a major moment. The new Chloe + Isabel accessory collection has a number of fun scrunchies to rock when you’re feeling that 90’s vibe. 

What going-out or red carpet accessories do you expect we’ll see more of in 2018? 

I’m really into the new Chloe + Isabel Multi-Crystal Pin Set, and metal pins that just dropped. They can spruce up any outfit, whether it’s a red carpet look, or even just a dinner date. 

What are some good hairstylist and colorist Instagrams to check out for "new year, new 'do" hair inspo? 

There are so many accounts that you can find hair inspo from, but for styling, I’d suggest @justinemarjan, @glencocoforhair and @kathleen_hair. For color, @ckaedingcolor, @chrisgreenehair, and @jeanpierresosa.

Do you have any new year hair resolutions? 

Drink more water, workout sometime, get a puppy.
