2024's Hottest Hair Trends: Colors, Cuts & Styles to Transform Your Look

How to Choose Your Perfect Hair Color and Style

Before we unveil the hottest trends, let's find YOUR perfect hairstyle and hair color match.

Style

Your face shape is your guide to choosing flattering hairstyles.

  • Oval Face: Lucky you! Almost any cut or style will work for you.
  • Square Face: Soften angles with wavy shags, long layers, or curtain bangs. Use a curling wand or flat iron to create waves and add softness.
  • Heart Face: Chin-length bobs, long wavy layers, or curtain bangs are your go-to styles. A round brush and blow dryer can help achieve the desired volume and shape.
  • Round Face: Elongate your face with long bobs, straight styles, or shorter afros. A straightening iron can help smooth out your hair and create a sleek look.
  • Oblong Face: Soften features with feathered fringes, angles, and long layers. A blow dryer and round brush can add volume and bounce to your hair.
  • Diamond Face: Flaunt those cheekbones with face-framing layers or short crops. A texturizing spray can enhance your natural waves or curls.

Color

Match your hair color to your skin tone for the most flattering look.

  • Warm Skin Tones: Champagne, beige, sand, ash, silver, ice, platinum, and the new "tomato girl" copper.
  • Neutral Skin Tones: Copper, rust, russet, strawberry blonde, pastels, grays, and the luxurious expensive brunette.
  • Cool Skin Tones: Butterscotch, honey, amber, caramel, gold, rich chocolate, and the icy Nordic blonde.

Pro Tip: Consider your lifestyle and hair texture too. Active lifestyles often call for shorter styles, while thicker hair can handle more layers.

  • "Tomato Girl" Copper: This reddish-orange hue is having a major moment, especially for those with warm undertones.
  • Nordic Blonde: This cool-toned blonde shade is inspired by Scandinavian beauty and complements fair skin beautifully.

Top Hair Trends of 2024: Cuts & Styles

  • Curtain Bangs: Soft, flattering, and easy to style, curtain bangs are the it-girl haircut of the moment and work for both straight and curly hair. A round brush and blow dryer are essential for achieving the perfect curtain bang look.
  • Wolf Cut: This edgy style combines elements of a shag and a mullet for a textured, rock-and-roll vibe. Texturizing spray and a curling wand can help enhance the choppy layers.
  • Bottleneck Bangs: A softer alternative to blunt bangs, bottleneck bangs can be easily styled with a flat iron or a round brush.
  • Curly Shag: This layered cut adds movement and volume to curly hair. A diffuser attachment for your blow dryer can help define curls without frizz.
  • Venus on the Half-Shell: Long, flowing waves with tons of volume are always in style. Achieve this look with a large barrel curling iron or hot rollers.

Avant-Garde Hair Trends of 2024

  • Buzz Cut with Designs: Shaved designs on the sides or back of a buzz cut are a bold and artistic way to express yourself.
  • Bleached Brows: This daring trend involves bleaching your eyebrows to match your hair color for a striking, high-fashion look.
  • Asymmetrical Bob: This edgy cut features one side of the hair longer than the other, creating a dramatic and unexpected silhouette. A flat iron can help achieve the sleekness of this style.

Additional Trends to Watch

  • Hair Accessories: Oversized scrunchies, embellished hair clips, and statement headbands are making a comeback.
  • Braids and Twists: Braids and twists are a classic way to add interest to any hairstyle, and they're being seen everywhere in 2024.
  • Natural Texture: Embracing your hair's natural texture is a continuing trend.

Whether you're a trendsetter or a classic beauty, there's a perfect 2024 hair color, cut, and style waiting for you. Have fun experimenting and expressing your unique personality! Don't forget to use the right tools to help you achieve the look you desire.
