While we’ll always have an affinity for long, mermaid-like hair, spring and summer 2023 features a return to shorter hairstyles. These offer versatility, the chance to shed some serious breakage, and the push we needed to test out new styles. Whether you’re partial to mid-lengths or are craving a bob length with bangs, we’ve got all the inspiration you need for your next appointment.
2023 Spring & Summer Hair Trends
Ash Gold Pixie
The thing we love about a short crop cut like the pixie is the ability to pair it with a vibrant hair color. As we head into spring and summer this ash gold blonde hair color complements this perfectly coiffed pixie! To get the look, Wella Ambassador Derek C (@dereqc) pre-lightened the hair with Blondor Soft Blond Hair Lightening Cream before applying Wella Professionals Shinefinity 09/13 to achieve the ideal ash blonde with a touch of gold.
Cozy Blonde Bixie
The bixie, originally created by Briana Cisneros is a short, texturized cut that falls between a pixie and a bob. The longer length allows you to create more movement and defined texture. In a modern take on the cut, Briana created this cozy blonde rendition. For those of you looking for a low maintenance hair color, cozy blonde is proving to be the season’s top choice. This blonde finish with root melt creates dimension and a lived-in look that allows you to go longer between touch-ups. There’s an element of texture built into this color that pairs perfectly with the textured shapes of a bixie. To create the cozy blonde hair color, Briana used Wella Professionals Koleston Perfect Special Blonde 12/11 with 40vol+ small touch of /11 to diminish warmth, for a cool, cozy blonde finish.
Curly Copper Cub Cut
The cub cut is a fresh take on the wolf cut with plenty of layers and shaggy texture but in a new shorter frame closer to a bob. Whether finishing with natural hair texture or creating a smooth finish, the health of the hair will play a big role when recreating this style at home. For best results, regular Wella Professionals Shinefinity treatments are ideal to create an up to 250% shinier finish while refreshing the tone. Between appointments utilizing Wella Professionals ULTIMATE REPAIR Shampoo, Conditioner and Miracle Hair Rescue are imperative to revive damaged hair and rebuilt strength from the inside out with Alpha Hydroxy Acid and Omega 9.
