Celebrities follow glass hair trend

The year 2018 has become the year of celebrities rocking shortened hair. Bob cuts have been Hollywood’s latest trend, and the newest celebrity sensation taking over Instagram is glass hair.

What is glass hair?

Glass hair is a sharp bob cut that looks smooth and shiny. The cut is sharp with no flyways and looks as if it were cut by glass. Just a few celebrities seen rocking this trend are Kim Kardashian, Hailey Baldwin, Jenna Dewan and Ashley Graham.

Celebrity hairstylists have been creating this look for their clients. Kim Kardashian’s stylist, Chris Appleton, wrote on Instagram, “The inspiration was 90s swishy glass hair. I wanted to create a really intense shine for the hair.”

Appleton created Kardashian’s sharp bob by keeping the cut blunt with no angle. He even suggests products to use to get the look, which are Color Wow Pop & Lock gloss treatment and Dream Coat which delivers the intense shine. Both products retail for below $50. Besides the products, make sure to have a flat iron on hand as well.

Celebrity hairstylist Sunnie Brook told Today, “To showcase this glossy look, having a clean, almost geometric haircut will help. Layers will cause light to be reflected differently, so having hair that is or almost is one length will give you high glass hair.”

Glass hair has become such a big trend overnight that is in high demand. For women looking for a “do it yourself,” prepping your hair for the epic look is effortless and most likely won’t take more than 10 minutes. So ladies, if you’re feeling bored with your hair, call your stylist and get glassy.
