2. Pixie Haircut + Fringe

The wait for “Euphoria” season two is almost over. Until then, we can obsess over the cast’s IRL beauty looks—like Gen Z star Storm Reid and her new ‘90-inspired pixie. According to her hairstylist and Matrix Brand Ambassador Greg Gilmore (@greg_gilmore), we can expect A LOT more pixie shapes and styles this season. Learn how to cut and style a curly pixie in this 90-minute online course with Greg!

3. Barely-There Bangs

Regardless of how effortless a client’s fringe looks, we know it requires a LOT of upkeep. After a year of curtain bangs, clients are moving toward a “barely there” bang moment that is soft, wispy and seamless. 

 

Pro Tip: Beverly Hills stylist @andreahenty always preps this type of fringe by blow-drying the hair and straightening with a few flat iron passes, then she point-cuts with ARC™ Scissors PARAGON II

9. Princess Diana Cut 

If you binged “The Crown” or gushed over Kristen Stewart’s new starring role in “Spencer” like us—you’ve had Princess Diana on your mind this year. Her iconic style is still relevant today and has graced our Instagram feeds, TV screens and is now on your client’s inspo boards. 

 

Pro Tip: Think of the mullet as a blueprint for this haircut, crop the length and style with a feathered-out blowout to fully embrace the look.
