  • Ready for a new 'do in 2020?

  • If you've been feeling "meh" about your hair lately, a brand new decade is the perfect

  • time to change up your look.

  • From curls, to shags, to, oh my God, the Rachel, we tapped the experts to reveal the hottest

  • hairstyle trends for 2020.

  • It looks like a good bob never goes out of style.

  • The iconic hairstyle gained popularity back in the '60s, and it shows no signs of stopping.

  • "Is it too short?"

  • "No!"

  • "Where did my hair go?"

  • In fact, 2020 is going to be the biggest year yet for the classic look.

  • Natalie James, CEO and owner of Vent Blow Dry Bar, says,

  • "All different styles of bobs are coming back, and in a big way.

  • Bobs are great and easy to manage, wash and go."

  • While a bob is a sure bet for the new year, it's not something you just wanna dive right

  • into, especially if you're starting with long hair.

  • For a no-regrets approach, James says,

  • "We recommend a slow transitionstarting with a longer style bob first."

  • "Don't worry about that."

  • "Sure."

  • Bobs aren't the only retro cut predicted to reign supreme in 2020.

  • Master colorist and artistic director, Linsey Barbuto, claims we should expect a blast from

  • the past, saying,

  • "As we approach a new decade, we are going to see some fun cuts come back from the 1970s

  • and 1980s."

  • Surprisingly, the iconic shag is expected to make its triumphant return.

  • But Barbuto says it's been reinvented with more "layers and textures."

  • She added,

  • "This will be an updated, more sophisticated look from the metal '80s hair."

  • "I think it's nice to frame your face."

  • Barbuto says this style works well with all sorts of face shapes.

  • Jessica Puglia, hair stylist and owner of The Hair Mansion, agrees, saying,

  • "Short or long, a shag haircut can and will work for almost anyone!"

  • Even if you didn't rock it the first time around, you now have a second chance to slay

  • one of the most famous hairstyles of the '90s.

  • "I mean Jennifer Aniston has amazing hair.

  • Seriously.

  • Let's just start with that."

  • Natalie James says,

  • "The '90s are back in a big way.

  • We're going to see the '90s trend continue into 2020 with [The Rachel] cut coming back,

  • heavy layers, fringes [and] minimal styling."

  • While it might be a surprise that this style has returned, no one is more shocked than

  • Friends star Jennifer Aniston herself.

  • She told Allure,

  • "I love [my hairstylist Chris McMillan], and he's the bane of my existence at the same

  • time because he started that damn Rachel, which was not my best look.

  • How do I say this?

  • I think it was the ugliest haircut I've ever seen."

  • "He was loaded when he gave me the haircut, this is true.

  • He didn't think about like, 'Oh she's gonna have to do this herself.'"

  • But plenty of fans were obsessed with the look, and The Rachel become the staple haircut

  • of the decade.

  • And, as we all fall in love with the rebooted look once again in 2020, we can only wonder

  • if Aniston will embrace her iconic style once again.

  • At least, on other people.

  • "The Rachel haircut.

  • It was like the haircut and I'm pretty sure like no TV show since has had a haircut named

  • after it."

  • If you didn't embrace micro fringe when it was hot back in 2018, this season is the perfect

  • time to try it.

  • Odile Gilbert, the hairstylist behind Emma Watson's baby bangs, told Vogue Australia,

  • "I think baby bangs are always in fashion, it can be long or short [hair] depending on

  • the face.

  • It's always cute and young, it's very French.

  • I guess it's very charming."

  • But before you grab the scissors, we all know that with bangs this short, there's no pulling

  • them back or off to the sides if you feel like changing your look.

  • If you wanna dip a toe into the pool without getting wet, Gilbert recommends trying out

  • fake bangs to get a feel for the style.

  • "I cut my actual hair."

  • In addition to little bangs, Jessica Puglia says long bangs are gonna be hot for 2020.

  • But, as always, she reminds prospective fringe fans:

  • "Ask your stylist to create the best bang for your face shape."

  • "It definitely is a lot more work.

  • So I would caution anyone considering to cut their bangs."

  • Samantha Stonehouse, senior stylist at Canada-based Cowlick Salon, says square-shaped faces often

  • look best with soft bangs that hit at the temples.

  • And heart and round-shaped faces can often pull off basically anything.

  • Stonehouse explained that bangs draw attention to the area of the face where they end, telling

  • Chatelaine,

  • "Flattering bangs should frame and focus on your positive features, not overwhelm or cover

  • up your face."

  • "You should try it sometime.

  • It's like a cleanse for, like, your face."

  • "They're bangs.

  • They're great.

  • Congradaritos."

  • Get ready to break out your best O.G.

  • Charlie's Angels.

  • "Everybody knows Charlie's Angels.

  • Of course!

  • They were like the first badass b-----es.

  • If I can say that."

  • Linsey Barbuto says,

  • "The Farrah Fawcett feathered layers will be the ultimate cut for 2020.

  • The long layers [work] great for all types of hair and great for longer hair as it adds

  • body and bounce."

  • Celebrity hair stylist Ted Gibson told HuffPost that in the '70s, Farrah Fawcett was the star

  • who introduced women to a softer way of wearing their hair.

  • And according to Allen Edwards, the stylist behind Fawcett's iconic cut, the look calls

  • for shorter layers around the face.

  • He told Stylelist,

  • "What made it different was that it wasn't full on top.

  • It was flatter, and the 'Farrah' part was the edges, which went flipping back."

  • In addition to those iconic layers, this cut truly comes to life depending on how you style

  • it.

  • Gibson explained,

  • "Use a large barrel curling iron in one-inch sections away from the face to achieve a modern

  • interpretation [on] her look."

  • And of course, don't forget you'll be needing all of the hairspray.

  • This season's all about symmetry.

  • At least when it comes to your part.

  • Jessica Puglia says,

  • "Middle parts are back putting a spin on the '70s straight look."

  • Right now you may be picturing super long hair to go with that center part.

  • But Edward Tricomi, hairstylist and co-founder of Warren Tricomi Salons, says he expects

  • "shoulder length" cuts to be popular in 2020.

  • Sanda Petrut, hairstylist at Maxine Salon in Chicago, also predicts that "medium length"

  • cuts will be a hot go-to style.

  • Thankfully, your doesn't need to be very long to pull off the look.

  • Frank James Dibrino, hairstylist and owner of New York-based Twisted Bangz Salon, says

  • that anything from a super short pixie to a layered bob will be quote "rockin' it big

  • time with center parts."

  • "Think I'm ready.

  • Woo!

  • Where we going tonight?"

  • Super short 'dos are coming back in a big way.

  • Chicago-based Sanda Petrut says these micro cuts read as fresh and fun, and conjure the

  • confidence to quote "help women to think bold."

  • Looking ahead to the warmer spring and summer months, Frank James Dibrino says,

  • "Short, chic and sassytopped off with cool fun colors will be making a splash for [the]

  • summer."

  • "It felt nice to cut all my long hair off and go to short hair."

  • Of course, you don't need to wait until it gets hot to rock a shorter style.

  • The pixie cut, which was popular in late 2019, will just keep going strong all year, according

  • to Cecelia Morales from StyleCraft U.S.

  • And Marius Morf, owner of PREP salon in San Francisco, also feels strongly that the pixie

  • will be a 2020 favorite.

  • If you're already doing a soft, layered pixie, you can up the ante in 2020 by changing the

  • way you style it.

  • Sanda Petrut predicts,

  • "Short hair is more versatile than you think and is going to be in for 2020, especially

  • when worn with a slick, gelled look."

  • The slicked-back pixie was in, back in 2014 and 2015, and we're beyond excited to see

  • it making a comeback.

  • Celebrity hairstylist and columnist, Jen Atkin, told Elle magazine,

  • "The look is very sleek and chic.

  • It portrays sophistication and confidence, as the hair is off the face."

  • "I'm gonna show you a fresh look for the new year."

  • Hairstylist Michael Dueñas explained how to get the bold style, telling Refinery29

  • you begin by misting your hair with water.

  • Next, rub a "liberal" amount of high-shine pomade between your hands and run your fingers

  • through your hair.

  • Then, give your hair a deep side part and begin combing your hair back with a wide-toothed

  • comb.

  • Finish the look with hairspray and you're ready to take on the world.

  • If you're sick of straightening or chemically-treating your hair and have been dreaming of rocking

  • your natural texture, 2020 is going to be your year.

  • Marius Morf predicts cuts that showcase curly tresses are going to be the thing this season.

  • Additionally, StyleCaster reported that natural hair was all over the runway for New York

  • Fashion Week's Spring 2020 lines, proving that natural hair is going to be a serious

  • hair trend throughout the year.

  • And we can all agree, it's about time.

  • "Okurr."

  • If you usually get your haircut with a straightened style in mind, just let your hairstylist know

  • you plan to wear your hair in its natural state.

  • You may also want to consider booking an appointment at a salon that specializes in curly hair.

  • With that, you can have your locks cut in a way that really lets natural hair shine.
