Trending Haircuts for Women


Try the trending fringe to guarantee your year will start with a bang! From 70s-inspired butterfly bangs to timeless sideswept bangs, any fringe with texture is making a comeback in the new year. Bangs frame your face and can create instant volume, making them a great accent for any hair type, length and texture. 

Ensure your bangs looks great and stay in place all day long with American Crew’s Pomade—a match *po*made in heaven!

Don’t worry about the upkeep with bangs. With Clip Notes, stylists keep personalized notes about each haircut and trim to make sure you get the same great haircut every time.


Messy Bun

Are you looking to save time with an easy, simple hairstyle? The messy bun is an everyday staple that will ensure you look great even on the busiest days. 

To achieve this look, start by putting your hair in a ponytail along with a few pumps of styling foam. Next, loop small sections of hair into a bun and pin them into place for a perfectly imperfect style. Topping the look off with a hydrating hair oil can tame fly-aways and reduce frizz for a sleeker finish. 

The Modern Shag

The shag is here to stay! Inspired by 80s rockstars, this layered cut features face-framing bangs, texture, and layers. Also known as the wolf cut, shag haircuts are a versatile style that works great with any hair type.


Lots of Layers 

2023 is the year of flowy hair. No matter the curl pattern or texture type, layered styles that emphasize movement are sure to be a hit! Keep your hair feeling weightless by using a volumizing shampoo and conditioner for a boost of bounce, and check out our tips for achieving volume for even more added movement. 


Glossy Waves

Fru-straight-ed with your flat iron? Classic waves never go out of style! For this look, use a curling wand and heat protectant spray or try braiding your hair before bed as a heatless hack. This simple style is a great opportunity to add a touch of your personality by exploring different accessories.


Trending Haircuts for Men

Embrace Texture

Whether your hair is straight or curly, this year is texture’s time to shine! Try products like American Crew’s Fiber Cream to define your hair and add rough texture without making it feel crunchy or stiff. If you’re not sure about your hair type or where to start, check out our guide for choosing the right men’s hair products.


Brushed Up Styles

Inspired by the 1950s, TikTok and YouTube influencers are bringing a modern twist to classic brushed up hairstyles. This new take on an old haircut includes medium-length hair on top that is styled back, usually in a messy way. The short sides are cut in a fade, undercut or taper. Finish off the look with the American Crew Grooming Spray to easily keep hair in place no matter the weather.


Fades with Fringe

A skin fade with textured fringe is an effortlessly stylish haircut that transitions from longer hair on top to shorter, blended hair at the back and sides. You can add easy volume and lift to your fringe by using American Crew Fiber for shorter hair or American Crew Matte Clay for longer hair. 


Day-to-Night Crew Cut

Crew cuts are classic, versatile styles that can be easily transformed for a day-to-night look. For styling on-the-go, keep a container of American Crew Pomade with you to switch up your look on the fly, and keep you feeling like a million-hair!
