22 Trendy Spring Haircuts and Hairstyles for 2024

Spring always brings with it the desire to go into spring cleaning mode and organize our homes and spaces…but our hair deserves a refresh too!

We’re no longer able to hide bad hair days under a cute beanie now that spring is here. We’re spending more time out and about with friends, and of course we want to look great for summer events coming up soon!

Hairstyles and cuts in 2024 are gravitating towards anything reminiscent of the 90s! Bobs, from the shaggy to the Baroque won’t steer you wrong; long, layered butterfly haircuts will help your locks feel healthy and cared for; and nostalgic trends like claw clips are not only coming back, but they’re being improved upon.

Color is big, whether it’s a healthy-looking, natural shade like strawberry blonde or Expensive Brunette, or a vibrant Cherry Coke or lavender gray. We’ve also got some braid hairstyles you can do at home, without spending big bucks at the salon.

If you like the rock n’ roll-inspired shag haircut trend, but also enjoy a little bit of length, you’ll love this variation on the classic. Add some bright colored highlights to really channel your inner mermaid.

Expensive Brunette

Spring is the time to make a bold change, like adding your favorite bright color to your hair–think pink, mauve, or turquoise. Going with an ombre version can make the color easier to maintain.

Look at this cute idea to give your hair a spring aesthetic! There is a brilliant hack to help these flowers stay in your hair: lash glue! When you’re finished, they are easily removed with water.

A hair scarf is a good way to freshen up your hairstyle without waiting for an appointment at your favorite hairstylist. A pastel or floral scarf woven into a braid provides color, making it perfect for spring. See this post for even more inspo: 15 Bandana and Scarf Hairstyles.

Cherry Coke

Cherry Coke as a hair color is a viral Tiktok invention; it’s a reddish brown inspired by Y2K nostalgia. It’s also (relatively) healthy for your hair, since those of us with dark hair can reach that vibrant color without multiple bleaching sessions.

Chunky Highlights

Chunky highlights are trending in 2024, but they’ve undergone some improvements since the last time they were a thing. Instead of perfectly straight, Kelly Clarkson-esque gold highlights, these are a little more uneven and natural looking. 

Y2K Flower Clips

Any Y2K-era hair accessories are fair game now! Who else remembers those pearl button hair clips from the early 2000s? These sparkly, all-over flower clips are similar.

Sleek Blunt Bob

Bobs are having a big moment this year, whether asymmetrical, texturized, or inspired by old Hollywood. Sleek, blunt bobs like this one have been popularized by Elle Fanning, America Ferrara, and Michelle Williams.

Curtain Bangs

We all still want curtain bangs this year! Thanks to Dakota Johnson and Heidi Klum, they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. They look best paired with long, wavy layers, or even a shag cut!

Butterfly Clips

Claw clips are back and then some, only this time we have the internet to teach us how to wear them. (Was I the only one who couldn’t keep them from falling out?) Instagram and Tiktok are full of claw clip hairstyle tutorials to help you perfect the art of claw clip hairstyles.

Strawberry Blonde

Make your messy bun a little bit fancier this spring by weaving in a cute hair scarf! Luckily for those of us whose hair is challenged in the thickness department, a scarf helps portray the illusion of a thicker bun.

Peekaboo highlights are a very fun, quirky way to incorporate a little bit of color without going all out. They are fun in a picture, but they are even more fun in real life when playing around with different styles! This vibrant blue-black is one of the most popular colors this season as well.
