Hair trends these days don’t change as quickly as makeup and nail trends. There’s no “glazed donut” equivalent for hair, unless you count the viral TikToks showcasing the latest Dyson tools. (Still, everything Hailey Bieber does—like cutting her hair—seems to instantly become a trend.) And because we all have different hair textures and cuts, not every new hairstyle is so easy for all of us to adopt .
But the spring 2024 runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris actually featured several different hair trends that everyone can wear. There’s the resurgence of the ’90s and early 2000s looks we call Y2K, as well as a new take on the head part, cool ways to tie your hair, and the end of the mid-part stranglehold. Ahead are the hair trends we think will dominate this spring and beyond.
It’s not often that fashion week hairstyles feature subdued heat and minimal effort, but that was the common theme on the Spring/Summer 2024 runways at shows in New York, London, Milan and soon Paris we got a taste of next season’s hairstyle trends. If you have a stash of hair bows, headbands, or even leftover Christmas ribbons, then you’re in luck. High-end accessories took the spotlight, from bows – both oversized and dainty – to ’90s-style comb-over headbands. Ahead, here are six spring trends straight from the runways and the best products to help you achieve these styles right now.
Chin length bob hairstyles
That sound you heard? This was a collective screenshot of those worshiping at Hailey Bieber’s altar when the model and Rhode Skin founder posted her latest haircut.
For Peter Do’s debut collection for Helmut Lang, hairstylist Jawara Wauchope worked with Do to bring downtown New York style to the runway. “Peter didn’t want it to look so thrown together, so the inspiration was greasy hair that hadn’t been washed in a few days,” he tells Bazaar. “I came here today on the subway and was sweating, so the whole element of sweaty hair and running around the city was exactly what we wanted.” To create the illusion of three-day-old hair, Wauchope used the Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser Invisible Oil Primer – but not in the usual way. “Normally you put a little oil in it and then blow dry it, but we put a lot of oil in the hair to make it heavier and then set the oil with the Dyson Corrale hair straightener.”
In the accessories department, Wauchope combined ’90s Helmut Lang with the current collection, cutting additional fabric from Do’s designs to make ribbons and headbands and bringing back the ’90s combed bands.
Then there’s Jenna Ortega, whose textured bob went just as viral as her dance moves on Wednesday.
Wet look hairstyles
Wet hair is everywhere right now. Here Bella Hadid wears the trend at Victoria Beckham’s show.
Wet hair can look beachy or punky depending on how you style it. For Dries it was the latter.
We love the combination of a classic red lip with some damp and shiny hair.
Side part hairstyles
You might look at this picture and think, “More wet hair?” Yes! But it’s also side-parted and hanging on the face, which was another big trend on the spring 2024 runways. Short hair can also follow this trend, as you can see at Loewe.

If this hairstyle gives you goosebumps, maybe it’s time for an eye cream. At Givenchy, the only hairstyle suitable for the Y2K-inspired show was this distinct half-up style that we last wore 20 years ago. Paris Hilton, the queen of all things 2000s, closed the show at Versace with a – guess what! – side-parted hair.
