The Haircuts You'll Be Seeing Everywhere Next Year

After the ball drops, the one question on our mind is: "What haircut will help me take on the new year like the badass I am?" Refinery29

Spoiler alert: colorful hair was happening wayyy before Kylie Jenner

If you're lucky, you escaped the dangers of your early teens (and perhaps preteen years)—namely the drastic and inevitably unflattering hair color change, often at the hands of your best friend. If you're even luckier, you've made it this far without having to sit down in hairdresser's chair and hear the words "color correction." And if you're really lucky, you've avoided the hair colorist's chair and the bathroom hair dye situation altogether.

FOR EVERY THREE college-age girls who see ‘‘Band of Outsiders’’ freshman year and snip ill-advised bangs à la Anna Karina at their dorm room desks, there’s one who takes her haircutting cues from ‘‘Breathless’’ and gets rid of it all for a Jean Seberg crop.
