Jenna Lu, professional hairdresser, says the top hairstyle/cut for 2023 is medium to long hair, paired with feathered curtain bangs and layers. Shorter layers are coming back in style because the messy disheveled look is easy to accomplish on your own. Low-maintenance hair is what people ask her for when they come into the salon. She always suggests a balayage because it gives a softer grow out. The term “balayage” is of French origin, meaning “to sweep.” Compared to traditional foils, the stylist's hand paints the bleach onto the hair to give more of an organic and natural look.
