Professional beauticians are constantly inventing bold and creative new ideas that challenge the way we think about beauty. While it’s great to have choices, keeping up with the ever-changing trends can feel nearly impossible. If you feel overwhelmed by options, don’t fret. We’ve whittled down the list to our top five favorite new beauty treatments to try out in 2019.
1. Low Maintenance Hair Lovers, Meet the Ombre
“Ombré is a French word meaning “shading,” says Tina Brown, hairstylist and owner of Swank Hair Lounge & Nail Bar in Tampa, FL. “This hair coloring technique is ideal for clients looking for a low-maintenance style. Traditionally the hair is darker at the roots through the mid-shaft and then gradually gets lighter from the mid-shaft to the ends. I like to think of this look as a color-melting style. Color seamlessly transitions from darker to lighter from roots to ends.” Simply put, the ombré effect gives you with great looking color without creating funky-looking roots as your hair grows out.
If you’ve been in a committed relationship with the same highlight routine since high school, then you keep doing you. But if you’re ready to switch things up, see what the ombré life is like.
2. Up Your Nail Game With Nail Art
Some may think there’s not much more to a manicure job than the basics: file, cut, cuticles, shape, and polish. But with the explosion of nail art, we think 2019 will be the year of unconventional, dramatic, and bold nail looks.
3. Eyes are the Prize: Get Boss Brows with Microblading
Microblading has become a huge phenomenon in the brow industry. Simply put, it’s a semi-permanent brow tattoo made by a small, pigmented “microblade.” Sure, it’s a pricier beauty commitment, but it can also last between 1-3 years. Think about how much time you’d get back if you didn’t have to fill in your brows everyday (hello few extra minutes of beauty sleep).
Laura Miranda of Brow House Beauty in San Antonio, TX is raising eyebrows—literally. No one knows better than Laura that applying change to your face, more importantly, your eye region, can be a big step for anyone. If you should feel comfortable placing this task in anyone’s hands, it should be hers. Whether it’s her six-figure views on YouTube, the hundreds of reviews on her Booksy page, or one look at her own brows, you’re certain to find comfort and satisfaction under her beauty guidance.

4: NYE is Over, but Glitter Shadow is Back
Just like other beauty treatments, makeup styles change with the times. But glitter shadow is one that has made comeback after comeback since the 80s.
Faeda Yemane (who can be found on Booksy as Fancy Faces by Fee) is showing the Bay Area that glitter shadow never left. Some may think glitter is out of place when we’re doing something other than ringing in the new year, but Fee is proving them wrong one makeover at a time.
5. Say Goodbye to Frizz with a Brazilian Blowout
“Walk in with damaged, frizzy hair, leave with soft, frizz-free hair. Get perfect hair in 90 minutes, and watch it last for a full 4 months,” says Danyel Nicole, private salon boutique owner in Chicago, Il. “Brazilian Blowout is a Keratin treatment and Brazilian Blowout is the brand. If you aren’t using Brazilian Blowout, you’re not getting a Brazilian Blowout.” Danyel says as she clarifies a common hair misconception. “I offer two Keratin treatments at my salon: Brazilian Blowout and Trissola. But there are hundreds on the market.”
Danyel tells us that Brazilian Blowout is for everyone, no matter the texture or thickness. The treatment allows for you to have a quicker blow dry time, and smoother, frizz free hair. Plus, it strengthens and shines in the process. What are you waiting for?
