Just like that, 2020 is coming to a close and we're breathing a sigh of relief. The past year has proved to be a complete game changer; not only in the way we've lived but also in the way beauty impacted our lives. Previously, changing up your hair simply involved stepping into a salon but not in 2020. Which is what makes the 10 biggest hairstyle trends of 2020 even more amazing. While some did come to life in a salon chair, others were the product of being quarantined at home for months on end. From wispy fringes cut in front of the bathroom mirror to dip-dyeing hair ends with a box hair colour kit, we're counting down 10 of the best hairstyle trends of 2020 as seen on Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities.
10 Biggest Celebrity Hairstyle Trends Of 2020
We're looking back at these unique hairstyle and haircut trends that made an appearance in 2020 on these Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities.
1. Long Bob Haircuts
After months of hair growing endlessly to ragged ends, everyone breathed a sigh of relief when they finally stepped into the salon and got rid of their long lengths. The long bob hairstyle especially, was a prime choice that made the hair feel lighter without chopping off too much length. Deepika Padukone's cropped haircut was a top choice of celebrity hairstyle inspiration.
2. Chunky Face-Framing Highlights
Revisiting the retro era meant taking some of its hair trends back to the present. Chunky highlights that framed the face was one of them. As seen on Dua Lipa, the 90s hairstyle trend didn't fail to make an impact in Hollywood celebrity circles.
3. Natural Texture
It was also the year when nourishing the hair finally took centre stage. Curling and straightening the hair was done away with in favour of replenishing lost moisture and improving scalp health. That way, hair's natural texture; whether it was curly like Sanya Malhotra's or wavy or straight, was nourished and healthy with a natural glossy shine.
4. Curly Fringe
If you thought the fringe was reserved for straight hair, Camila Cabello will change your mind. This year, she put her natural texture on display and accompanied it with a curly fringe that added depth to her hairstyle game.
5. Messy Hairdos
Celebrities like Bella Hadid further channeled the 90s with quintessential twisted buns and knotted hairstyles completed with pins that were a simple and easy choice for many to pull together at home.
6. Curtain Bangs
Everybody who is anybody jumped on the curtain bangs train in 2020; Priyanka Chopra included. It was a popular hairstyle choice that changed up one's look and was often the prime haircut of experimentation in front of the bathroom mirror to sometimes disastrous results.
7. Pinned Hairstyles
If you needed any more proof that a 90s style revival took place in 2020, Dua Lipa's sleek bob hairstyle with barrettes neatly pinned on either side is proof. A true blue look from last decade of the previous century, hair pins made their way into many hairstyles to give them a retro twist.
8. Curly Locks
The quarantine period also gave beauty enthusiasts time to experiment with their locks, which led to some fantastic hairstyles. Like Sonam Kapoor's gorgeous curls, the curler was experimented with and loose, luscious curls were perfected in the hours spent in front of the dresser.
9. Dip-Dye Haircolour
Those who couldn't resist changing up their hairstyle even in quarantine turned to box hair colours at home. With their own DIY take on highlights and dip-dye hair colouring in bold and bright shades, like Kaia Gerber, some cool self coloured hairstyles came to life in 2020.
10. Pixie Haircuts
The daring hairstyle lovers did the deed of the chopping it all off like Sayani Gupta into some form of a pixie haircut. Bold, light and fuss-free, it was a hot hairstyle trend after stepping into a salon many months later.
