We hate to break it to you, but Madonna is a liar. Time does not go by so slowly (slowly), because it is almost 2018, and we're pretty sure it was just 2007 yesterday. Which means all of this year's best beauty trends, like eye-of-the-tiger hair, super-sleek middle parts, and platinum buzz cuts are about to disappear into ether of beauty trends past to make room for whole new fleet of selfie-worthy looks.

And to help you stay ahead of the curve, we got the lowdown on the exact haircuts and colors that are pretty much guaranteed to infiltrate your Instagram feeds in a few months, ahead.

Why It Matters That Miss Jamaica Wore Her Hair In An Afro

Miss Jamaica Davina Bennett might not have won the first place crown at this year's Miss Universe pageant, but she definitely made a lasting impression.
The 21-year-old philanthropist chose to take the pageant stage with her natural hair, an afro, instead of the common blowouts and extensions we see time after time on pageant stages.

Twitter lit up with love for the natural haired beauty and the hashtag "#MissJamaicaShouldHaveWon” was born. "My daughter said 'Mommy Miss Jamaica hair looks just like mine!,'" said one Twitter user. Another account spoke to the discrimination people who choose to wear their hair naturally commonly feel. "Shout to that HR consultant who said my hair was inappropriate for work, hope yuh tv turn...

10 Performance-Enhancing Gym Hairstyles From Spring Runways

elle-workout-runway-hair-1-1511305715

Hair often feels like an afterthought at the gym—pull it back and go—but if competitive athletes are any indication, workout hair might actually affect your performance. Professional boxers are required to secure hair with "soft and non-abrasive materials" according to the Women's Boxing Association. For gymnasts, hair must be pulled back away from the face so as not to obscure vision. And female Taekwondo competitors are required to wear long hair in a bun or a ponytail to prevent snags. Of course, taking the time to get overly done up for a workout is probably going overboard. These runway styles strike the balance.

hairstyles-for-long-faces-1511216101

I’mma be real with you for a sec: This hairstyle-for-your-face-shape thing is not at all necessary for any human being in the world. Because the haircut and style that’s going to look best on you is the one you feel most comfortable wearing, and that almost never comes down to a scientific, geographic formula.

BUT, not everything you know is a complete lie, because there are certain haircuts and styles that are, technically, more visually appealing to the eye, thanks to angles and lines and the maths of the world. So to get you inspired for your next cut, we turned to our favorite celebs, below, for the hairstyles that look especially excellent on long faces.

Cara Delevingne’s Hairstylist Shows Off Three Daring Ways To Style a Pixie Cut

screen-shot-2017-11-13-at-3-58-33-pm-1510691380

A few days after Cara Delevingne debuted her shaved head to the world, I had a one-on-one appointment with her hairstylist Mara Roszak. When she mentioned how she'd be working with the model on her upcoming press tour for Valerian, I blurted out—"working how?" How does a hairstylist create a hairstyle on a nearly-shaved head?

Gradient sparkles dusted on a platinum pixie✨ @majormoonn gel really elates the inner child. #CaraDelevingne thank you for letting us play

Roszak didn't have an answer at the time, but weeks later, we saw the full extent of her untamed creativity. Delevingne hit the red carpets wearing a head-full of glitter, gold foil, sparkly hair accessories, and a fully-painted and rhinestoned...

1. Blow dry your hair as straight as possible. 2. Section your hair, creating a slightly slanted side part from mid-brow at your hairline to the middle of the crown of your head. Using a rat tail comb for the most precise line. 3. Smooth fly-aways and baby hairs with an edge control styling gel. (I used Creme of Nature Flexible Styling Snot). 4. Start braiding your hair along your hairline to the right of your part. Make sure that you're adding in hair each time your cross a section of hair under the other two sections to make your braid bigger and longer, creating a...

Highlights and slicked back locks are a thing of the past. This season, 90's minimalism is back in full swing and better than ever, and really, who knew that the flat wave could be so cool? Texture makes a comeback, adding dimension to everyday styles, but don’t think of these as your average, run-of-the-mill beachy waves. Right now is all about sexiness—the kind you feel when you get your hair done and don’t want to wash it for the next four days because it begins to look even more effortlessly chic. And no one does it better then Kaia Gerber, fashion elites' newest member to the supermodel club. Here are six, CR approved ways to recreate the new it-girls best style moments.

Want a bold twist on braids? Try these braided bantu buns with braids I created on Serayah, singer and actress of Fox’s hit series Empire (she plays Tiana Brown, if you're already not obsessed/watching!) — set to her newly released single "Driving Me," featuring Jazze Pha.

Watch and learn:

1. Section off a center part. Using a rat-tail comb, section off the front half of your hair (from 1-inch past your ear) from the back half of your hair. Clip the back section into a bun to keep it out of the way, and then part a 1/2-inch section of hair down the center of your head to your crown. 2. Section your hair some more. Again, using a rat-tail comb, part your hair into a thicker...

Meet The Artist Whose Extreme Long Hair Is Taking Over Instagram

00-story-image-sara-cath
While the bob was undoubtedly the calling card of the Fall 2017 shows, the Spring 2018 season was all about extreme long hair which popped up everywhere from Marques’Almeida to Michael Kors Collection, where supermodel Kirsty Hume—and her Rapunzel-like mane—made a show-stealing appearance. And a quick look around social media proves that over-the-top lengths are not exclusive to the runway. Case in point: Los Angeles–based photographer Sara Cath, whose lion-like cascade of copper curls has helped her rack up more than 40,000 Instagram followers and counting. It might be hard to believe that the 21-year-old—who, in addition to shooting high-octane portraits of fellow millennial artists, just appeared in Rosetta Getty’s Georgia O’Keeffe–inspired collection—hasn’t always carried the hear-me-roar type of confidence her waist-grazing mane no doubt symbolizes. But, at just...

Amal Clooney and her husband George just hit the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival looking exactly as you'd imagine: perfect, glossy, and angelic. Amal's hair, however, was quite unexpected. The short, wavy bob is faux (no chop here), but it's a departure from her preference for long, glossy waves. Ahead, Clooney's hairstylist Rod Ortega gave us the exclusive rundown on exactly how he got the "1940s Italian glamour"-inspired look using T3 tools and some expert pinning.
