Asymmetrical Lob

The lob, or long bob, has been in fashion for the last few years now. It’s a great way to get a shorter style without chopping off too much of your hair. Asymmetrical lobs are even more popular right now; making one side shorter than the other adds an interesting element to your style and is pretty easy to maintain, which is why it’s so popular at the moment.

Curled-In Chin-Length Styles

Chin-length styles in general have always been popular, but curling in the bottom adds an additional layer. You can make the style generally super-straight with just a single curl at the bottom or allow a pretty decent amount of curl throughout your hair to give it a bit of a beachy vibe.

Modern Shag

The 70s are in vogue once again, and nowhere is that more obvious than with hairstyles. The 70s shag has made a huge comeback, with a slightly more modern edge now that makes it even more appealing. You’re likely to see this modern shag on people who want that carefree style from the 70s, especially since this shag typically needs very little maintenance.

Simple One-Length Cut

One thing people are definitely looking for in 2020 is a simple cut that’s easy to take care of. That means the one-length cut is becoming a favorite. It’s a simple blunt cut that typically thrives on longer hair, and it’s one that you can maintain even if you don’t feel comfortable getting out to the salon very frequently.

Chunky Highlights

You’ve almost certainly seen it on people on your social media feeds, and you may have even seen it dubbed the “e-girl” hairstyle. This swell of attention toward chunky highlights, especially near the front of the hair, has made it a popular choice for all sorts of people, even those who don’t want to dye them crazy colors.

Baby Bangs

So-called “baby bangs” are super-short bangs that often extend less than an inch from your hairline. People who are rocking baby bangs typically need a pretty edgy style to really pull it off, but it can be a great element of a style that really wants to do something super modern. If you’re going for baby bangs, make sure you’re explicit to your stylist about the exact length you want.

Slightly Short Bangs

If you’re not interested in going all the way with baby bangs, what about bangs that are just slightly shorter than typical bangs? These bangs often hit just above the eyebrow, which makes them a little edgier than the common bang styles you’ll otherwise see. This short edge makes it a unique 2020 style.

Curtain Bangs

Probably the most light-effort bang style out there is curtain bangs. These bangs can be just as long as the rest of your hair; the only difference is how the stylist chooses to style them. It’s a simple and easy way to get bangs to change up your look without having to really commit to bangs across the entire front of your hair.


As you can see, there are a variety of hairstyles people are opting for in 2020, largely based around these styles being easy to maintain, simple and chic.
