Trendy Hair Cuts For 2024
This year, embrace your bob with an ultra-chic jaw-skimming style featuring layers that frame the chin. This popular cut looks beautiful worn straight and sleek or with bangs.
Fitzsimons and Cavalcante predict that this cut will remain trendy through 2024. Characterized by a flipped bob style, this trend offers the flexibility needed to grow out your locks while still maintaining a structured appearance.
1. Long Bob
If you are transitioning from a shorter bob cut or simply prefer something longer, this versatile style offers the best of both worlds. According to Verrett, this chin-length textured pixie offers “a good first step for people considering drastic chops”, while also being flexible enough to skim collarbones while being versatile enough to tie back into a ponytail or low bun when needed.
For thin hair, a classic long bob with smokey balayage color will draw the spotlight onto its natural texture, while for those with thicker locks it offers softly layered beachy waves that are easy to manage and effortlessly cool. Celebrities like Dua Lipa, Margot Robbie and Viola Davis have worn this look before! Its dramatic chin-length curtain bangs add even more drama.
2. Shaggy Layers
If you’re searching for an easy yet fashionable haircut, shaggy layers is an ideal solution. This hairstyle features short and long layers, creating volume while framing the face, creating depth. In addition, its playful combination of short and long layers provides great volume that frames facial features while adding volume to fine locks or curls.
Billie Eilish made this trend famous, garnering 23 million likes on Instagram for her wolf cut shag with fringe bangs. For something less eye-catching and understated you could try an undone choppy lob with fringe bangs instead.
This style is ideal for those with medium hair as it provides an easily maintained length that’s comfortable to manage. Add full textured bangs for an attractive, stylish finish!
3. Textured Pixie Cut
A layered pixie is the ideal haircut for those with textured hair. It suits all face shapes, producing an edgy lift at the crown. Plus, adding wispy bangs creates an effortlessly feminine and stylish look!
Though slicked-back styles project an “I was at some party last night” vibe, tousled bedhead is more natural looking and suitable for those who do not wish to spend too much time primping their locks, according to Fekkai.
A rounded pixie cut can be the ideal style to enhance thin hair. The closely cropped sides create the illusion of density while its bangs add fullness on the forehead. Add ash blonde highlights for added dimension and piece-y texture!
4. Cropped Bob
Bustle’s expert hair guru considers this chic short version of the blunt bob to be its “bougie sister”, alongside shaggy layers and blunt fringe which were popular trends of 2023. This versatile cut can easily be pulled back into a sleek ponytail or worn with face-framing bangs; celebrities like Lily Collins, Kim Kardashian and Julia Fox have already been seen rocking this trend!
Cropped bobs offer an easy hard reset that requires minimal styling (just a spritz of volumizing spray). But they look just as chic styled with side-swept textured fringes, which Madison Reed master colorist Shvonne Perkins predicts will become major beauty trends by 2024.
5. Kitty Cut
Short hair trends like shaggy wolf cuts and choppy jellyfish cuts have seen tremendous popularity recently, while the kitty cut takes things one step further by providing sleeker styling options that are more polished. Resembling a layered bob, this trendy hairstyle boasts long textured layers as well as overgrown curtain bangs that frame the face in order to achieve a feminine, feline effect.
Angled layers help the hair taper towards its ends, creating a sleek silhouette that works well when worn straight or wavy. Furthermore, its face-framing bangs complement all facial structures making this hairstyle suitable for anyone regardless of personal taste or preference.
If you’re feeling intimidated by drastic hair transformation, the kitty cut can be an ideal first step to test-driving new style without making a serious commitment. Its versatile shape can be dressed up or down as desired and allows your natural growth process to take its course without needing frequent haircuts.
