Salon booking app Booksy reveals the top five trends set to dominate 2023

From the ‘coquette aesthetic’ and Chebula to the octopus haircut and the return of the side part, salon booking app Booksy has called upon its hair and beauty experts from salons across the UK to reveal the hair and beauty trends that are set to take over in 2023.

Vishal Khakhar, salon appointment booking app Booksy’s Head of Marketing, reveals the results:

The Side Part is Back
Vishal says: “Nostalgia will play a huge part in 2023 beauty according to our experts. For the better part of a decade, the side part reigned supreme as the go-to hairstyle. Despite the ongoing Millennial vs Gen Z TikTok side vs middle part drama, the side part is back, with celebs from Kim Kardashian and Zendaya to Megan Fox embracing this Y2K trend from the early 2000s.”

The Butterfly Haircut Trend
Vishal says: “The butterfly cut is a shagged, multi-layer mullet with shorter layers on top that blend into longer long layers falling below the shoulders, giving hair lots of volume and movement that is simultaneously edgy and romantic. Animal-inspired cuts are leading the way in 2023, also look out for the octopus haircut, a mullet variation with heavy curtain bangs, full rounded layers on top and long tentacle-like locks on the bottom.”

Candlelit Brunette
Vishal says: “Our hairdressers are saying rich, warm hair colours are rising in popularity. Candlelit brunette is a beautiful, warm shade of light brown that glows amber when sunlight shines. There’s no need for bleach and it is a natural, universally flattering style.”

Vishal says: “Our beauty merchants spent last year blessing skin with niacinamide and ceramides, now it’s time for another skincare ingredient to take centre stage. Chebula is an anti-ageing ayurvedic herb that’s rich in antioxidants and its superpowers include minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, evening skin tone, smoothing, firming, and brightening. Chebula is often used in serums but will start popping up in many different skincare and beauty products throughout 2023.”

The Rise of the ‘Coquette Aesthetic’
Vishal says: “Experts say the Coquette aesthetic is set to take the makeup world by storm in 2023, with its winged eyeliner, prominent pink blush, and pouty, blurry lips. It’s hyperfeminine, yet deeply self-aware, a true celebration of femininity. A modern coquette is an unapologetic girly girl – think Lily-Rose Depp, Anna Taylor-Joy, and Lana del Rey in the 2010s.”
