Spring 2024 Hair Trends




Tight Fade

For clients looking for a cleaner looking haircut for the new season, the tight fade is a perfect option. This haircut looks best when worn totally shaved or super short on the sides with more length on top but kept relatively short for a lower maintenance look. This look takes inspiration from the military (but is not a direct replication) and is super trendy, but it will require clients to regularly visit the salon to ensure the cut is kept fresh and looking its best.

While it's always been quote popular, the buzzcut has been trending for some time, and it’s not going anywhere. For those feeling adventurous and looking to ‘reset’ their hair for spring, this is a great choice. Although it’s a simple cut, it looks incredibly cool, clean and is extremely low maintenance. It also can be paired with bold colour choices including neons for those looking to stand out from the crowd.

Curtains are back for 2024, but instead of being worn smooth and sleek we will see curtains being paired with texture and waves for a contemporary take on the trend. Timothee Chalamet is one of the many celebrities that have been sporting this look and pulling it off incredibly.

Many celebrities have been sporting mullet cuts and the trend is booming as we head into the spring/summer months, with clients looking for a more modern take on the style. For spring 2024, the style will still have its signature length at the back; however, the sides will be worn slightly shorter and the whole look will appear a lot softer with lots of added texture on top.

For clients looking to slightly change up their look without opting for too much of a drastic cut, suggest a new parting. Both side and middle partings are back for spring/summer 2024 and are a great way to change the client's current look. The side parting is perfect for those who want to add some volume into their look and are looking for a style that looks formal and sophisticated. The middle parting looks great on all hair types – straight, textured and curly, and is a great way to enhance the client's current look. Both side and middle partings have been all over the red carpet and runways and I think they'll be a reoccurring trend this year.
