7 Hairstyle Trends for 2018

At The Salon Professional Academy(TSPA), San Antonio, our students are able to learn a lot about hair styling, dying, cutting, and more. We take the time to train our students so they can prepare to pursue a career after their time with us. A big part of that preparation includes understanding and mastering trends. We understand the importance of trends and embrace them in our curriculum! By giving our students the opportunities to ask questions and practice their skill, our educators are ready to support them in their journey. We have seen many of these styles make a return and are excited to support our students as they master these or even create their own!

Check out some of 2018’s top hairstyle trends, and let us know which ones are your favorite!

Ribbon Highlights

Posted by The Salon Professional Academy of San Antonio (TSPA SA) on Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Ribbon highlights? We really like this style because it blends ribbon highlights with a beautiful ashy brown. This technique, known as balayage, is used to create tons of amazing looks! At TSPA San Antonio you can learn this technique and create your own beautiful balayage looks!

Long Bob/Blunt Edges

In 2017 we saw a lot of long bobs, or lobs as they are nicknamed. This is a particularly attractive hairstyle for people with any shape face, which has made it super popular! At TSPA San Antonio we love to help our students master these types of blunt edge cuts so they can create the looks their clients love.

Colder Hues

Wonder hair hues

Wow! We love these cold-toned shades. Gray hair has been all the rage for a while, but recently more ashy and pastel tones are making an appearance. We help our students prepare to create these looks by including in-depth training about chemical processes as well as the professional line of coloring products Redken provides.

As a Redken partner we are proud to offer our students access to these amazing products as well as the cutting and styling techniques that we receive as a Redken Diamond Academy.

Natural Curls

Natural hair is beautiful! At TSPA San Antonio we want each of our students to develop a well rounded education – and that includes the care and styling of all types of hair! Learn this skill and create beautiful curls and braids for every head of hair.

80’s Comeback

Scrunchies, denim, and big voluptuous hairstyles from the 80s are making a comeback, and we couldn’t be more pleased! This style, similar to a blowout, is taught in TSPA San Antonio’s cosmetology program. Learn this technique and create your own 80s inspired looks. If you want to give this a try yourself, do! Just avoid using too much product as that can give your new ‘do a faux appearance.

Wispy Fringe

Whispy Fringe

Fringe is all over the place. Should they be short and blunt? Long and splayed? We are all for changes in style. The cutting techniques used to master this look is valuable no matter where you want your future career to lead you. Using professional Redken products and a cutting system that we are proud of we encourage our students to learn their techniques and create many different styles of bangs.

Re-love Perms

We never thought we’d see the day when perms came back, but 2018 has surprised us again. Natural-looking perms are very popular right now with people striving to recreate that perfect wave on a daily basis. We are ready to help our students master the chemical processes that can achieve this beautiful look!
