Move over minimalism, maximalism is back! In the past years, the clean and plain aesthetic has been in the spotlight and mainstream media was overcrowded with the art of "less is more." But this time, maximalism is back and standing out from the crowd with its bold and flamboyant colours. Fashion runways, celebrities and digital influencers are rocking scene-stealing beauty looks. Here are the most popular trends to celebrate the "more is more" aesthetic.

The runway had its fair share this year of adorning models' locks with vegetation, but the best trends are set by people on social media. We’re looking at the Instagram-famous "Flower Vase Hair" started by digital influencer Taylor R., which is inspired by Beyonce and Rihanna’s floral-themed Vogue covers. She upgraded by literally putting her hair up in a tower around a concealed bottle and placed flowers in it to pop up on top.

Everybody loves a polished, uniform mani-pedi but it doesn't hurt to be artsy sometimes. Maximalism inspired this nail trend of using more than one colour on your nails in irregular patterns for that erratic and unique look. You can try to use different colours for each nail or rock the jelly-nails look.
