The Hottest Summer Hair Trends for 2024

When it comes to hair trends of summer, really anything goes! But if you’re stuck on a style and want to see what’s trending to get you inspired at home or with the help of your hairdresser, we’ve got you! We’ve rounded up the hottest, most searched hair trends from Google to TikTok!

The Kitty Cut ~ the most searched hair trend of 2024!

Step aside, wolf cut—the "Kitty Cut" is reigning supreme in 2024's hair trends! This sleek, feline-inspired style is capturing attention and hearts with its perfect fusion of elegance, adaptability, and easy sophistication. Imagine the Kitty Cut as the refined sibling of the '70s shag and wolf cut. Unlike the wolf cut's wild, textured layers, the Kitty Cut offers polished, face-framing layers that gracefully skim the collarbone. The outcome? A look that's both chic and effortlessly cool.


A key highlight of the Kitty Cut is its incredible versatility. This mid-length haircut adapts beautifully to any hair texture—be it straight, wavy, or curly. The layers can be tailored to accentuate your natural hair type, making it an ideal choice for anyone looking to refresh their look while maintaining their unique style.

The Kitty Cut bob is trending on TikTok for its sleek, face-framing layers and effortless style, making it the go-to chic, low-maintenance look. #KittyCut #HairTrend #TikTokFaves

Long, & Layered Mermaid Hair

The long, layered mermaid haircut is a dreamy, ethereal style that embodies flowing, cascading layers reminiscent of a mermaid's tresses. This haircut features layers of varying lengths, creating a sense of movement and volume that beautifully accentuates natural waves and curls. It's perfect for those seeking a whimsical, yet sophisticated look, ideal for both everyday wear and special occasions. The mermaid haircut adds a touch of fantasy and elegance, making you feel like a real-life Ariel.

 

 

Choppy, Textured Shag

The choppy, textured shag is a bold, edgy haircut that revives the classic '70s shag with a modern twist. This style features choppy layers and a textured finish, creating a tousled, effortlessly cool look. Perfect for all hair types, the shag adds volume and dimension, enhancing natural hair movement. It's a versatile cut that can be styled in various ways, from messy bedhead to sleek and polished, making it a fantastic option for those looking to add a bit of rock 'n' roll flair to their style.

 

 

Beautiful Bobs

Don’t get us wrong, who doesn’t love mermaid hair? But sometimes you want something a little shorter, sassier and lighter for summer. Enter: the bob, a timeless classic that has been roaring since the 1920s. It’s a truly universal style, as it can be cut to suit any curl type or facial shape, from sleek bobs with a fringe to more teased and textured. The key to this look though is to have volume to work with (helllloooooo extensions!).

  

Actress Laura Harrier has been turning heads with her bold new "bog haircut," a style that's becoming a trendsetter in 2024. This haircut is characterized by its choppy, uneven layers that create a deliberately tousled and slightly messy look, reminiscent of natural, wild textures found in bog landscapes. Harrier's take on the bog haircut combines a carefree, edgy vibe with a touch of sophistication, making it perfect for anyone looking to embrace an effortlessly chic style.

Tracee Ellis Ross has recently debuted a gorgeous curly bob that perfectly showcases her natural texture and volume. This chic, jawline-skimming cut features voluminous curls that add both bounce and definition, highlighting her iconic cheekbones and radiant smile. Styled with expertly placed layers, the bob adds movement and structure, making it a standout look for any occasion.

 

Hailey Bieber even took the crown up north in Canada with this bob she started rocking in January being the most search haircut up there since the start of the year.  

That 90’s Hair Bling

With all things 90’s trending right now from fashion to hairstyles, one of the biggest return trends for this summer are hair accessories! While they’ve been going strong for a few years now, hair gems in particular have been such a hot commodity that TikTok trends have pushed them out of stock in craft stores across the country. From sparkly claw clips to barrettes and small stick-on gems, what makes this look so fun is that you can use them to dress up virtually any hairstyle.

French Curl Braids

For curly, kinky, to coily hair summer has its own brand of issues when it comes to protective styles of your natural hair or even to protect your hair extensions investment the dominant trend this summer is French Curl Braids. This classic 90s hairstyle was all about clean plaited sections and voluminous, curled ends that was popularized by celebrities like Beyonce and Brandy. It’s a chic, stunning and oh-so-wearably style that takes a little time to section and braid but is so worth the effort. It looks good in virtually shade from natural black to blonde!

French curl braids begin with the classic French braid method, where hair is gradually gathered and braided close to the scalp. This technique ensures a secure and neat base that can hold the added curly extensions effectively. The braiding pattern adds a touch of elegance and structure to the hairstyle​. 

The Reverse Money Piece

Chances are you know all about the “money piece” haircolor or extensions placement trend where you have lighter face-framing pieces towards the front of your hairline. The look became very popular for its ability to draw the eye to the face and really brighten your completion. This year however the trend has flipped! Instead of 90s blonde highlights to frame the face, the all over color look IS blonde with darker pieces to frame the face. Ranging from simply a darker shade of blonde to even pops of color, the look is a little edgier and “fun” for summer. It’s also a fun way to experiment with a haircolor change up without fearing hating it with an all over color. The trendmaker of this look? Miley Cyrus!
