We know the start of a new year is all about looking forward, but if you’ll indulge us for just a moment, we need you to think back, way back to the beginning of last year. A certain teeny, tiny pop star was dominating the charts after well-deserved hiatus, but it wasn’t just her music making headlines—everyone was obsessed with her comedian fiancé, and thus BDE was born.

We won’t get into exactly what BDE is (Google it, you won’t be disappointed), but we have to admit it’s influenced our vibes for 2020. This year, we’re all about big hair energy—BHE if you will. From larger than life hairstyles to over the top hair accessories, in 2020, the bigger the hair, the better. Looking for ways to embrace your big hair energy this year? We’ve got you covered. We’re breaking down our favorite big hair trends that will help you cement your place as the trendsetter for the new decade.
