Hairstyles change as often as the fashion trends do these days; unless you are one that has found your perfect style and plans to stick with it (other than a change in color or something minor to prevent boredom from setting in) for the rest of your life. Many hairstyles fade out for awhile only to come back with a bang a few years later, so with that, let us take a look at the hot celebrity hairstyle trends for 2008.
There is definitely variety in the hairstyle trends this year, so you will be able to find something that not only suites your features, but your taste, and a trend! If you cannot find a style that you like and fits your existing hair without a drastic change, you are saved, too. All you have to do is color your hair and add highlights, however you want. You’ll get a new look without changing too much, which is the better way to try things out if you are unsure.
A major trend from 2007 (and many years before that sporadically throughout fashion history) continues this year. Want to take a guess at what it could be? Yep, you got it...the bob cut. This classic will never die because not only is it cute, but it is only as high maintenance as you want it to be. It works well with any face shape because the length can be adjusted to flatter it. You can style it with a certain amount of complexity (depending on length and type of bob) for special occasions, while keeping it simply “brush and go” for busy daily life. There are variations of the bob haircut, but the key component of the bob is that it should always appear natural, and shiny.
Also noted in hairstyle trends this year are strategically layered styles, piecey crop cuts, emo hairstyles, and wavy looks. Mid-length cuts are turning from drab to fab, becoming more seductive in their styles. If you have long hair, try a straight style with a side part. If you have short hair, stick with a bob, bangs, and layers. Curls are definitely hot this year, as long as they are silky and manageable and not frizzy looking. Perhaps the most commonly used trend in 2008 is the use of highlights and multi-tonal color to finish off the new look. Multi-tonal color provides a more custom, natural looking appearance, and gives you a boost of confidence as you keep the heads turning!
