Let’s Review 2023’s Biggest Beauty Trends

Beauty Pie analysed the popularity of different trends on social media platforms and Google to discover the biggest trends of 2023 – combining the total number of TikTok views, Instagram posts, Pinterest boards and the annual search volume on Google over the past 12 months for each trend.

This temporary nail art trend quickly sky-rocketed in popularity after Kim Kardashian revealed on Instagram that her iconic stiletto-shaped French mani was all thanks to artificial ‘stick-on’ nails. Since then, the nail trend has been popping up on perfectly manicured hands around the world and has even been spotted on the runways of global fashion weeks. Curtain bangs, with over 4.2 billion engagements is the second biggest beauty trend that’s been everywhere this year, and just behind, with 3.1 billion engagements, is glass skin. Other trends in the top 10 include micro-needling, lymphatic drainage, ceramides and faux freckles.

By calculating the total number of Google searches over the past six months and comparing it to the previous six months, the beauty experts have revealed, which ones are seeing the biggest spike in popularity in the run-up to 2024.

The Scandi hairline is the top trend that the experts expect to see everywhere next year.

Better framed features and an instant pop of color to give that Scandi cool glow. Google searches for Scandi hairline have surged by 6,748% ahead of 2024, so it’s definitely one to watch.

Other hair trends also dominate the top 10 – in fact almost half of the trends in the ranking are related to hair styles. The butterfly bob has seen popularity spike by 466%, interest in the preppy bob has increased by 311% and vanilla chai hair has also seen a 257% surge in Google searches ahead of 2024.
