A Hairstylist Told Me That These 8 Hair Trends Will Be Everywhere In Spring (2024)

Daffodils are in the supermarkets, the evenings are finally getting longer and March is on the horizon, which means spring is just around the corner. As a beauty editor, I look forward to this time of the year when it comes to hair trends. Spring marks a reset for our wardrobes, and with fashion month and awards season underway, we're starting to see plenty of hair inspiration from the runways and red carpets alike—great fodder for spring hair trends in 2024 that we're all likely to want to copy stat.

To find out exactly what spring hair trends will dominate 2024, I asked Tom Smith, international artist in residence at Billi Currie and hair trend forecaster, to share the hair trends that he thinks we're going to be seeing a lot more of over the next couple of months. And he delivered. From colours to styles, there are so many trends that you'll want to try for the new season.

"Asymmetry and indulgence are the themes of the season this spring, with various looks incorporating angled, parted and side-swept styles accompanied by intensely rich, luxurious and glamorous colour tones oozing shine and vitality," says Smith. "Spring 2024 offers an indulgent selection of styles and shades that provide confidence and glow for the wearer with a real feeling of warmth and joy."

We all want a bit of warmth and joy as we head into spring, right? Scroll ahead for the hair trends that will help you tap into that energy.

Spring 2024 Hair Trends

1. Oxblood Red

"I’ve been talking about the importance of the progression from copper into red for months now, and we continue to add to the body of celebrity references to pull from with these deeply vibrant cherry-red tones," notes Smith. "As a non-naturally occurring shade, oxblood red tones are great for those who like to push the boundaries of their fashion and appearance. The great thing about intense red tones is that they are incredibly shiny, which makes them a great option for those who wish to show off the health and vibrancy of their locks or who prefer polished or high-shine finishes.”

Act+Acre

Showerhead Filter

Red hair is notoriously prone to fading, both from sun exposure and hard water distorting the colour. A shower filter like Act + Acre's helps your hair colour salon-fresh for as long as possible.

Moroccanoil

Color Depositing Mask

"When it comes to non-naturally occurring shades, the question of suitability is less around eye colour and skin tone and more about the confidence and attitude of the wearer, combined with their fashion and makeup choices," says Smith. If you're not ready to take the plunge with permanent colour, a hair gloss is a fun, non-committal way to try the trend, as it adds a semi-permanent tint to the hair that will gradually wash out.

Josh Wood

Berry Brunette Gloss

This hair colour looks great with a glass-like shine, so look for hair glosses that top up the vibrancy and add a glossy sheen.

2. Side-Swept Styling

The easiest hack to update your long hair for spring 2024? Simply move it to one shoulder. "One of the most popular red carpet styles of late, side-swept and asymmetric hairstyles have been seen again and again," says Smith. "The relaxed elegance of hair swept over one shoulder is extremely feminine whilst looking undone and soft." We're into it.

"This is an easy-to-achieve style for all those with hair longer than shoulder length. If you find that your hair is so soft or silky that it doesn’t stay in place easily, prep it with a texturising spray, a styling powder or even simply a dry shampoo," recommends Smith.

3. Taupe Brunette

Taupe brown is set to be a huge hair colour trend as we head towards spring 2024. "As I predicted towards the end of 2023, this year will 'hero' brown and brunette shades in the same way 2023 did for coppers," says Smith. "With monochrome dressing in fashion at an all-time high and tonal browns as popular now as they were in the early '00s, this taupe and mushroom-inspired brown shade is a great option for those wanting to play with brunette shades but keen to keep away from warm, red or chocolate tones," he says.

If you want to go brunette but want to steer clear of warm tones, then taupe brunette could be for you. "This is a whisper of brunette rather than a shout, and connotes innocence, purity and minimalism," says Smith. "Best combined with a stripped-back style and healthy, shiny hair, this combines well with the 'clean-girl' aesthetic that remains popular."

"When the required shade is deeper than your natural colour or current starting point, this cool-neutral tone is easy to achieve," says Smith. "However, if your hair is natural or currently dyed darker, [you] will require a professional colour correction to achieve this specific tone. Hair will almost always fade warmer over time, and so colour-protecting products—and especially those which top up tone—are a necessary tool for home care between salon visits."

4. Deep Side Partings

Gen Z and millennials may have debated it in recent years, but side partings are 100% back, says Smith. "Partings seemingly oscillate between central and side every season, but this spring we see a firm push towards deep side partings for short cuts, bobs, longer styles and even fringes too," he says. "Intrinsically connected to the vibe of the side-swept styles of longer hair, a deep side parting gives a drama to any style."

"This is a great option for those who prefer one side of their face over the other or feel they lack facial symmetry," explains Smith. "Similar to the side-swept styles we see on longer hair, the use of a styling powder through the parting will give the wearer maximum control and invisible hold."

Experiment with which side you part your hair on. If you already wear your hair in a side parting, try switching it to the other side for instant volume and root lift.

5. Syrup Blonde

"Intensely sticky and sweet, 'syrup blonde' is the most indulgent shade for those who prefer to wear their hair lighter. With undertones of gold, caramel and vanilla, this is the most delicious shade. Warmer tones always appear brighter, healthier and shinier and so this tone direction is a fantastic choice for those whose blonde may be feeling a little lack-lustre," says Smith.

"Adding a toner to your usual highlighting or blonding appointment is all that is required to achieve this shade. Have your colourist go as warm as possible without tipping into strawberry-blonde territory, and keep the blonde light with minimal darker shadows or low lights."

If you have naturally dark hair, golden blonde works great as a balayage or highlight hue. Jennifer Lopez has embraced warmer blonde highlights on her brunette hair recently.

6. Single Strands

Allowing a single tendril free on either side of your face is another hairstyling trend that Smith has been seeing everywhere, and it's easy for anyone to do. "[It's] incredibly simple but feels high-fashion and directional in a way that retains softness and practicality. This works on anyone with hair longer than lip length," says Smith. "When combined with a middle parting, this look becomes a bit more noticeably 'designed', whilst if done in combination with this season's popular side partings, you’ll find the look feels more effortless and incidental."

"If your hair is shorter, test out this style by tucking most of your hair behind both ears and pulling out a strand from one side of the front of your hair, either from beside a central or side parting," says Smith.

7. Burgundy Brunette

"With red the statement-making shade of the year, it makes sense that a more subtle and 'natural' version would become popular for those wanting to keep things softer. 'Burgundy brunette' oozes richness, shine and gloss whilst reflecting red tones in the light," says Smith. "Great on all bases from mid to darkest brown, health and vibrancy is a welcome characteristic of this particular shade."

"On naturally deeper or dyed brunette hair this is a simple tone shift," says Smith. "In the cases of lighter or previously highlighted hair, the good news is that this tone is ideal for long-lasting depth and a healthier look for those wanting to transform their [hair] to something deeper and moodier," he says.

8. Feathered Layers

"One of my earlier predictions for the entire year, feathered layers are sure to persist throughout the majority of 2024," says Smith. "The flattering face-framing they offer combined with their practicality for trimming and keeping the more delicate hairline area tidied up make them a perfect choice for those wanting to maximise the appearance of fullness and health of their hair, whilst giving more versatile styling options," he says. Take your cue from Beyonce with her long feathered layers.

"Feathered layers can be utilised to flatter and draw attention to your best features, so work with your hairstylist to determine the ideal shortest length—the hollow of the cheekbone or the chin work best in most cases," recommends Smith. "For those who tend to like very long hair, try feathering from the collarbone down to try the style out with minimal commitment."
