Staying ahead of the trends means you’ll turn heads wherever you go. Getting the latest look isn’t hard if you know what you need. If you’re looking for a new look for the new year – whether it’s for your nails or your brows, you’ve come to the right place. Read on to learn what beauty gurus across the world are predicting will be the hottest trends in the year ahead.
Well-manicured hands say oodles about who you are as a person. They show you care about everything you do – from tip to toe. Last year was all about long, glazed donut nails. 2023, thankfully, seems to be much more functional but still extremely sexy.
Low-maintenance nails are going to play a huge role this year, with clean buffed nails more important than their length. Shortish nails in a square or round shape will mean you can get things done faster!
Short and clean doesn’t mean boring. Chrome and metallic finishes à la the 90s are back with a bang. And we couldn’t be happier. Look forward to chrome nails in a whole bunch of bold colours tempered by opaque base coats. You can also use a milky shade over the chrome to pay homage to last year’s Glazed Donut look.
Bold colours are in. Especially reds. You can choose to go red all over, but you’ll more likely see reds and other bright shades used as accents to more muted colours. It’s not just red that you’re limited to. Blues, purples, oranges, and yellows are all going to be in, so you can choose a colour to match your newest, cutest outfit without worrying if it will clash.
You can also paint each nail a different colour for an attention-grabbing look.
When we said the 90s are back, we weren’t kidding. Nail art is going to be a focal point this year with stickers and foils creating 3D effects. Feel free to bring out your inner diva with blingy crystals or show off your tastes with nail stickers.
Other nail trends to look out in 2023 include basic French manicures, delicate nail piercings, and textured nails.
Pay Attention to Those Brows, Baby
Before you start playing around with your brows (think the over-tweezed trends back in the day), remember rule number one of brow beauty: well-groomed, healthy, and natural-looking brows will never go out of trend. You can read all about shaping your brows here.
Well-shaped brows with every hair in place are every woman’s dream and definitely on trend in 2023. Ditch the gels and get the perfect brows with eyebrow lamination. Eyebrow lamination will still allow you to keep some thickness to your brows without looking messy.
If your brows are thin and struggle to grow, you’ll love that thin brows are back on-trend. Thankfully, the thinness is much more forgiving than the 90s as the trend still allows for some thickness. You can get them shaped naturally with missing hair filled in for an even look.
2023 is all about expressing yourself. Rainbow brows are definitely on-trend, although not necessarily practical for everyday life. You can still include a little bit of the trend with a brow tint. Opt for lavender or blue to stay really on trend.
