Summer 2024 Hair Trends: What’s In and How to Achieve It

Trendy Summer 2024 Haircuts

Birkin Bangs

Curtain bangs, step aside. The shorter, wispier Birkin bangs are here to frame the face for a chic, carefree look. Are you ready to embrace your inner Sabrina Carpenter?

When starting with wet hair, the Volume Blow Dry Spray will help you get the bounce you need for a full-bodied look. Once dry, this trendy style looks its best with a lightweight texturizing spray to achieve that classy yet undone texture. Fiber Blast Texture Crème or Texture Charge Defining Finishing Spray will get you there!

Smooth, silky hair also accentuates this look so soothe your strands with a dash or two of Smooth Drops.

Bobs and Lobs

There’s a reason everyone on your feed is chopping off their hair. Beyond the liberating feeling of a fresh start, bobs are making a resurgence! We can thank Challengers-era Zendaya for this one.

But there’s a lot of variety within this trend. French bobs feature coquettish, eye-grazing bangs, 90s bobs stand out for layering, blunt chops achieve a striking silhouette, and baroque bobs make an asymmetrical statement with bouncy waves and curls. For a longer option that permits long-hair styling, a lob might be for you.

The key to keeping your bob chic, playful and trendy? Texture and body.

Play with the Lift It Mousse on damp hair for bouncy, vibrant styling, and turn to Powder Fix Spray for a blast of instant volume. For shine and gloss – a staple of stunning bobs – turn to the Radically Smooth® Taming Crème.

The Butterfly Haircut

1970s aesthetics have been on the rise for a few years now. Finally, the era has reached the hair salon with the butterfly cut. This modern shag features face-framing layers that create a breezy, winged effect!

To keep things bouncy and fluttery, use the Volume Blow Dry Spray, Super Plump® Whipped Mousse, and a healthy dose of Humidity Rx® Style Lock Spray. Whatever you do, don’t skip the mousse!

Side Fringe and Side Parts

The side part is back, baby! And with it, a chic cut: the side fridge, an asymmetrical look with a tousled, effortless vibe.

Fighting frizz and adding shine matter most here, so add silkiness to damp hair with Plush Locks Leave-In Smooth or the Moisture Styling Crème. Cuticle Closer can also help in the shower, and Smooth Drops help dry hair.


Trendy Summer 2024 Hairstyles

Big Volume

No matter your haircut, we can once again thank Sabrina Carpenter for shining a spotlight on volume!

So, instead of flattening your hair for a sleek and polished look, play around with carefree bounce and body that scream fun, flirt, and feisty.

This could mean treating yourself to a professional Brazilian blowout, but you can also boost your volume from home. Here’s a basic guide to volume-focused hairstyling:

  1. Cleanse and condition with Volume Shampoo and Volume Conditioner.
  2. On wet hair, apply Volume Blow Dry Spray to the roots and Super Plump® Whipped Mousse near the roots (and a bit lower down the shaft).
  3. Flip your hair upside down while blow-drying.
  4. Once dry, set your hair with a texturizer like Texture Charge Defining Finishing Spray.
  5. Throughout the day, revive your texture and volume with Powder Fix Spray or a dry shampoo.

Beach Waves with Braids

A different take on volume and texture dominated the Met Gala: beach waves. Specifically, beach waves sprinkled with tiny braids.

To feel like a wind-swept mermaid, use Lift It® Mousse before heat styling and a texturizer on dry hair. Fiber Blast Texture Crème or Texture Charge Defining Finishing Spray will both work.

Oh, and don’t forget the baby braids!

The Undone Bun

Sorry, clean-girl aesthetic — the messy, undone bun is having a moment! This look obviously doesn’t require much styling, but it is an opportunity to embrace your natural texture. Who could deny the effortless charm of wild, textured hair pulled into a carefree bun?!

If you have curls or waves to show off, lock them in place while damp with Tru Curl Enhancing Crème. To add some personality to dry hair, our award-winning Fiber Blast Texture Crème creates separation, texture, and definition.


Trendy Summer 2024 Hair Colors

Gold Blondes

As for blond trends, stylists across the board are preparing for a summer of warm tones. Think butter blond over bleach blond, gold blond over platinum blond! There are also rumblings of ‘old money blond,’ which combines warm and cool shades.

If your hair’s on the struggle bus after bleaching, we recommend our Baobab Recovery Collection.

Beige Brunettes

Have you noticed how soft this summer’s hair trends are? The same goes for brunette trends – stylists predict soft roots like balayage, mellow caramel highlights and more relaxed money pieces. Hence the rise of beige brunette, a more natural-looking shade in a neutral brown base.

Whichever you choose, remember to use color-safe shampoo and conditioner for every wash!

Hot Pinks and Strawberry Shades

Want something bolder? Non-traditional hair color trends for summer 2024 are all about pink. We’ve seen everything from hot pink highlights on dark brunettes to strawberry blondes to all-over pastel pink.

Pink isn’t the easiest shade to maintain, but luckily for Colorpoof color enthusiasts, everything in our collection – shampoo included – enhances color vibrancy.

Pro tip: Before hitting the salon, use our Pre-Tox Spray and Clear It Up Shampoo to refresh your roots and scalp. They’ll help give your color a fighting chance at lasting the whole season!

We know we say this all the time, but now we really mean it: we can’t wait to admire your hair this summer!
