With the A-list changing their hair every other day and fashion week dictating different trends twice a year, it can seem impossible to keep up with what hairstyles are in, and what ones require an AW18 silk headscarf cover up job ASAP.
Thankfully our go-to moodboarding site and no.1 hair inspo destination, Pinterest, has been keeping tabs for us. And not just in the UK. They've got eyes on the most popular hairstyles hitting the whole globe in 2018.
From laissez-faire messy buns in France and fiery red hair in Mexico, to cute pixie crops in Germany and the Meghan effect side bun right here in the UK, these are the most popular hairstyles in the world, right now.
France - The Messy Bun
Pin Increase: +137%
Between Chanel, Sportmax and Stella Jean, messy buns were all over the AW18 catwalks. So it's no surprise that leading the way to this season's hottest hair trend is the most chic country of all, France. Nonchalant and totally effortless, this is the French girl hairstyle we can all achieve.
Mexico - Red Hair
Pin Increase: +222%
Red hair is officially back! In Mexico at least. Pins for the fiery hair colour had a surge of over 200% confirming it as one of 2018's biggest global hair trends. Tweak your red to suit your skin tone and avoid flat, post box shades for a bold look that feels expensive, rather than DIY.
US - Braids
Pin Increase: +445%
The most pinned hairstyle to come out of the US? Braids, of course. Whether box braids. boxer braids, dutch braids or anything in between, Americans can't get enough of the protective hairstyle, with a whopping 445% increase in pins. Ideal for all hair types, braids always look epic.
UK - The Side Bun
Pin increase: +164%
Undoubtedly influenced by royal hair inspo of the moment, Meghan Markle, the UK is all about wearing our buns low, loose and to the side a la the Duchess of Sussex. Leave any stray tendrils to do their thing for a more effortless take on the royal wedding-approved hairstyle.
Argentina - Split Fringes
Pin Increase: +150%
Fact - split, feathery fringes haven't been this popular since Jennifer Aniston rocked out a Friends season 10 hair game changer. And Argentina are feeling the nostalgic hair throwback with searches for flequillo abierto (aka open bangs) up by 150%. Think Camila Cabello over Girls Aloud and you'll be on the right track.
Germany - Pixie Cuts
Pin Increase: +266%
According to Pinterest, Germany is going mad for super short pixie crops this year, with an almost 300% increase in searches. And we're into it. Our motto? The shorter, the better! Look to model Gisele Fox and Zoe Kravitz for crops that work with any hair type.
Japan - Ash Grey Hair

Ever ones to pioneer the latest experimental beauty trend, Japan is feeling the love for ash grey hair with searches up for the edgy hair colour by almost 70%. The easiest way to add a 2018 update to last year's pastel blonde hair, simply grab yourself a grey toner, soak, and go.
