Wondering how jellyfish are able to inspire a hairstyle? Check out social media and you’ll wonder no more! Jellyfish-inspired cuts have been all the rage lately – they’re one of the biggest hairstyle trends for this year!

This style essentially mimics the shape of a jellyfish and can be achieved on just about any hair length. It consists of contrasting layers of different lengths. The shortest stops at the chin, just like a bob, and is curled inward. Meanwhile, the longest layers can be as long as you want them to be – some even have them waist-length! However, unlike the short layer, the longer layers are curled outward, just like the tentacles of a jellyfish!

While you could use a curling iron to achieve these bends, a flat iron would be much easier. Look for a model with rounded ends to give you the curves that you’re seeking without any harsh angles, just like the HerStyler Colorful Seasons range. 

Braided Pigtails

You may remember this look from your younger days but braided pigtails are now making a comeback…in a big way! They fall in line with several of this year’s most popular fashion trends, such as the coastal cowgirl and the coquettish look. This means that they’ve been spotted on many runways, which has, as usual, trickled down into the mainstream hairstyle trends of 2024. 

While braided pigtails can be created on shorter locks, it’s a style that’s easiest to pull off when your hair is medium or long in length. This gives you more options in terms of the type of braids that you use. A regular three-strand braid is the quickest but French or Dutch braids will give this look some extra finesse. 

Long and Layered

Conditioner Argan Oil and Biotin

There has recently been a noticeable shift away from over-processed hair. Whether this may be in terms of hair dyes, chemical treatments, or anything else, more and more people are recognizing that over-processing their locks only leads to damage.

This, coupled with the surge in bond treatments, means that people have overall been sporting healthier strands. As a result, they’ve been seeking out styles that show this off, which is why the long and layered look is one of the much-loved hairstyle trends of this year.

The length shows off your healthy ends while the layers add volume and movement. It’s a low-maintenance look too – just keep your hair feeling healthy by ensuring that you have a rich conditioner in your hairstyling arsenal and your hair will naturally do the rest.

The Rachel 2.0

Everyone knows (and usually loves) the 90’s Rachel cut. It’s no surprise that it has made a return, but 2024 sees it take on a modern spin. 

This time, the Rachel 2.0 is where it’s at. Inspired by the original Rachel, it features the same length and layering, although the layering is significantly toned down. This makes it look more polished and refined, giving it the 2024 touch.

When it comes to styling this look, keep it simple with a blow dryer and a round brush. While many try to replicate those curves with a flat iron, this is difficult to do.

The Super Side Part

Switching up your part is an easy way to switch up your entire style without having to have any of your length chopped away. This is why one of 2024’s hairstyle trends that many people will be experimenting with is the super side part. Simply take a regular side part and move it over even further to rock this style.

The dramatic dip that this style provides will be extremely complimentary for those of you with a square, diamond, or heart-shaped face. It will help to soften your jawline and your cheekbones, giving your face a new sense of balance. 

Round and Curly

While those with coily natural hair would be able to pull off the majority of these hairstyle trends, there’s no denying that this hair type can come with some challenges. It has a texture that’s often difficult to manipulate into certain styles. If you can relate, you’ll love the next of our hairstyle trends…

Round and curly is set to be one of the most sought-after looks in 2024 for natural hair. It consists of the hair being cut in a round shape that frames the face. The length is up to you – whether you go with a shoulder-grazing cut or a shorter bob, so long as you have the roundness to it, it will instantly make your natural curls look fuller and healthier. 

Birkin Bangs

Sleek Styler Black

The 70s have given us quite a few of the hairstyle trends that we’re seeing today, with Birkin bangs being one of them. As you may have guessed from the name, this style is inspired by the iconic Jane Birkin. It’s a classic look that, unlike many other bang styles, is surprisingly low-maintenance.

So, what is it that makes bangs Birkin? Birkin bangs fall to just above the eyebrows. They’re cut quite bluntly, which gives them a full and heavy appearance. However, the ends of the bangs are trimmed to be thin and wispy, which lightens everything up. The overall effect is soft, natural, and sultry.

If you’ve tried bangs in the past but have struggled to get them to fall in a flattering way, a flat iron with narrow plates is what you need. The HerStyler Sleek Styler Black 1” Titanium Straightener is always a great choice for styling bangs to perfection!

Pixie Variations

Marula oil

Pixie cuts have been on trend since last year, with the edginess of this style persuading many women to opt for the chop. However, once they’ve done so, they sometimes feel limited when it comes to their options for styling their hair. 

The good news is that 2024 has brought with it some fantastic variations on the standard pixie, enabling you to take your regular look to the next level.

The rebellious pixie, for example, is all about a choppy texture that you can spike and tousle. Alternatively, go in the opposite direction with a neat and precise pixie. Reminiscent of Halle Berry, this short and tapered style is great for accentuating facial features. 

Textured and curly pixies are also becoming more popular. The advantage of this look is that you’ll be able to embrace your hair’s natural texture, which makes maintenance and daily styling a breeze. Simply run a hydrating hair serum, such as the Marula Hair Nourishing Serum, through your locks while they’re still damp, allow them to dry, and your hair will look fabulous!

The Blunt Bob

Certain celebrities are known for being trendsetters, and Hailey Bieber is one of them. So, with the model choosing to chop her locks into a blunt bob in 2023, it should come as no surprise that the blunt bob is now one of the biggest hairstyle trends for 2024. 

Unlike the choppy bobs that people were sporting last year, this one features clean, fresh lines. It’s the perfect hairstyle for spring if your hair has come through the winter looking a little dull and dry. You’ll be able to snip away damaged ends to revive your entire look with a cute blunt bob.

One trick to keep in mind is to ask your hairstylist to cut the front of your bob a little longer than the back. This way, you’ll be able to tuck your hair behind your ears without it looking too short.

The Asymmetric Bob

If you were ahead of the game and have already had a blunt bob for a while, one way to put a fresh twist on your look is by going asymmetric. This is essentially a regular bob but cut much shorter in the back than in the front. Not only does this give you more daily styling options, but it also gives this short cut incredible movement. 

If you have fine hair, you’ll love how this style will give your locks the illusion of being fuller and thicker. With that said, it’s a cut that works well for thicker hair types too!

Fluffy Curls

Sleek Hair Conditioner

If you have curls and you’re tired of spending hours trying to define your waves with your array of styling tools, the next of our hairstyle trends will be right up your street…

Rather than having to spend time diffusing sections of your hair to give your curls some extra shape, this trend is all about allowing your hair to embrace its soft and fluffy nature. Layers are the best way to enhance this look, ideally with slight bevels at the end of each section. 

Healthy-looking hair is key to pulling this one off, so make sure that you have a moisturizing conditioner in your hair care routine. The Sleek Hair Conditioner from HerStyler is infused with argan oil, which will leave your hair feeling beautifully soft – perfect for fluffy curls!

Bow Stacking

Last but not least on our list of hairstyle trends, let’s talk about hair accessories. Each year sees a different hair accessory hit the headlines, with 2024 being the year of the bow.

Before you argue that bows were big in 2023 too, 2024 takes things even further with bow stacking. This trend consists of incorporating multiple bows into your look. In addition to donning your hair with a bow (or two), you could also add bows to your outfit, and even your makeup! With bows now available in so many different shapes, sizes, and materials, accessorizing with them has never been easier.
