We're spilling the tea on all the hottest hair trends in 2024. This year is all about elegance, natural beauty, and showing off your individual style. Read on to find out which trend you're going to try this year.

Trend #1: XL Lengths 

Longer hair means more freedom to experiment with different styles. XXL ponytails, adornments, half-up/half-down and windswept looks are in. Extra long hair is popular this year, and more possible than ever with hair extensions. Long lengths with relaxed waves and multidimensional color gives an effortlessly cool vibe.

Trend #2: Bows, Bows, Bows 

Balletcore bows are in full effect. Bows are huge right now and expected to remain big throughout the year. If you want to add a bow moment to your hair, here are some ideas to try: double bubble braids with bows added, a charming wavy mid pony, a low pony wrapped in a ribbon, or mini face framing braids with bows added. You could also weave a ribbon through a braid, or wear one in place of a headband. Bows are a fast, easy way to elevate your look. 

Trend #3: Sleek & Shiny 

Healthy, glossy, shiny hair is in. Wear it straight, or slick it back in a bun. Give your hair a luxe gloss treatment and watch heads turn. Add hair oil for hair that has that photo flash shine, or embrace a sleek silhouette with gel or hairspray before you put your hair in a pony. One of the best things about a slicked back bun or pony is your hair is out of your face, whether you're at the gym, with friends, or out for a night on the town.

Trend #4: Natural Textures 

Healthier hair is on the rise, which means embracing your natural texture is in! This year, we'll be seeing more natural, undone curls. Wavy and curly extensions cater to natural texture, giving you a seamless blend. 2024 is the year of healthy, vibrant hair, from root to tip. Stylists are predicting gentler, heat-free styling routines and greater interest in scalp care. Create texture using product instead of hot tools, prioritize hydration, and learn how to style your hair with the least amount of heat possible.

Trend #5: Balayage

Lived in balayage is here to stay! This year, bronde is getting an update in the form of balayage. Chunky highlights are being swapped for a softer color melt. Subtle dimension and warm tones are in. The latest balayage we're seeing features a feathered hand-painted effect on just the ends of the hair to keep it subtle. Want to try balayage without the harsh effect of chemicals from hair dye? Balayage extensions are the way to go. It's sunkissed, lived-in color that won't damage your hair.

Trend #6: Bold Colors 

With the alt and grunge glam aesthetics picking up more followers, get ready to see hair colors become even more experimental. Purples, silvers, and bold, artistic colors are in. To create a vivid shade, we recommend custom coloring blonde shades #60 and #80. Are you a stylist who wants to offer bold colors like this to your clients? We have an online continuing education course you'll love! You can learn more about it here:
