1. Half Bun
Long or short, the length of the hair did not matter when it came to this hairstyle. In fact, men too started sporting this look! The big perk of this hairstyle is that you can make a half bun work for any occasion and any hair type or length. All you need to do is first prep your hair with the to add the required bounce and volume. Then, simply separate the top half of your hair from the bottom half, making it into a bun and securing the same with a hair tie.
2. Curtain Fringe
Bangs made a huge impact in the year, 2018, and with a lot of variations. But the single most trending one has to be the curtain fringe hairstyle. That is the long, tapered, mysterious-meets-chic look that works for every texture and length. Fringes can be versatile too, you can wear them on the side or separate them in the middle. It is the rare look where you can fake a fresh hair chop with sharper fringes.

Classic yet trendy, the low ponytail has always been a preference for everyone and the year 2018 did not prove to be any different. The key take in this hairstyle is, however, the parting. You can either do the centre-parting or a side-parting. However, always remember to keep it clean by doing so with the help of a tail comb. The next step is to comb your hair back towards the nape of the neck into a ponytail. Finish off by spraying the to give a dazzling shine to the hairstyle.
