The new year means new emojis!

Smartphone users will get to express themselves in new ways later this year as the Unicode Consortium has finalized its latest batch of images.

The collection includes a cupcake, lobster, pirate flag, and more expressive smiley faces.

There will also be new hairstyles, curly or bald, and more color options, such as red and white.

Users can expect the new emojis to be available in August or September.
