The year might have just gotten started, but we've had our eyes on hair trends set to take over 2024 for a while. Throughout the past few months, we've spotted some upcoming major looks on runways, social media feeds, and red carpets, giving us little teasers of what's to come this year. While the hair trends of this year are certainly bold and unique, there happens to be something for everyone. So whether you're looking for a brand new haircut, opting to do a different style, or just shopping for some accessories (baby steps), you're in luck because we've rounded up a few hair trends we're expecting to see in 2024.

Curtain Bangs
A style we're not leaving in 2023 is curtain bangs. These face-framing layers stop at the cheekbones, giving the face a halo effect. They're also the perfect addition to blowouts because they emphasise the volume and curls. What's not to love?

We're in a new era of blowouts. While we've seen these larger-than-life hairstyles in the past, they're being revamped thanks to new technology and hairstyling tools that are making them more convenient than ever. Of course, there are also plenty of traditional and DIY heatless methods, too, if that's more your vibe. Regardless, the bigger the blowout, the better.

Soft Waves
Whether inspired by the mermaidcore aesthetic, coastal cowgirl, or heatless hair routines, soft wavy hair is gaining popularity. You can get the look yourself by using a wave wand, opting for some spray, or taking the most minimalistic approach and braiding your hair before bed. These last a couple days until you wash your hair and make hair super presentable.

Super Side Part
We've embraced déjà vu with the Y2K resurgence, and now, the 2010s are too creeping back up. One of the early signs of it is the millennial side part. Throughout 2023, we saw some of the hottest celebrities embrace the look, so it's only a matter of time before we start seeing it everywhere. This time, expect to lean into it a little more by opting for a more dramatic dip.

Pigtails are making a comeback! Thanks to trends like coquette and coastal cowgirl, we've been spotting this look all over our social media, and now, we're even seeing celebs join in on the fun. Opt to braid your pigtails or add bows for extra flair! This look is as fashionable as it is suitable for a casual day out.

Long Bob
There’s a reason the cut, which ranges from mid-neck to collarbone length, is so popular. It’s universally flattering since the short length brings all the attention to your face, it looks great on all hair textures, and it’s super versatile. Long bobs are also ridiculously easy to maintain. They are great for low-maintenance girls. Since this haircut is so flexible, there’s a style to suit everyone, whether you prefer your hair stick straight, full and curly, or somewhere in between.
