Manahil Tahira May 21, 2024

As the summer sun blazes down, it's time to shed those winter locks and embrace a fresh, cool look. From Bollywood to Hollywood, celebrities are setting trends with haircuts that scream summer chic. Here are four haircut inspirations to keep you stylish and comfortable this season:

1. Chic lob

Margot Robbie’s newly debuted lob is the epitome of effortless summer glamour. This long bob, with its soft layers and tousled waves, offers a relaxed and youthful vibe. A perfectly sleek fit for humid summer days, the chic lob is versatile, allowing for both casual beachy waves and more polished styles for a night out.

How to style: Scrunch a sea salt spray into damp hair and let it air dry for natural waves. For a more refined look, use a curling wand to create loose curls and finish with a light hairspray.

2. Sultry curtain bangs

Kaia Gerber is among many this season to have brought back the retro charm with her curtain bangs. Gracing a recent Apple TV event with her appearance, all eyes were on Kaia’s elegant chignon and face-framing curtain bangs. This 70s-inspired style is making a huge comeback, framing the face beautifully and adding a touch of vintage elegance. Curtain bangs are perfect for those wanting to try bangs without the full commitment.

How to style: Blow-dry the bangs with a round brush, directing the hair away from the face to achieve the signature split. Finish with a light hold spray to keep them in place.

3. The midi bob returns

Two bob styles on one list should tell you just how hot this season is on chopping off your locks. Priyanka Chopra was seen at Cannes this year, rubbing shoulders with Anne Hathaway while rocking 2024’s darling: midi bobs. Falling just below the chin, the midi bob is a more doable spin on the classic bob, revealing just the right amount of neck for the summer breeze while being long enough to be tied. The layers add movement and volume, making it ideal for fine hair.

How to style: Use a texturising spray on damp hair and rough-dry with your fingers for a lived-in look. For added volume, use a root lift spray and blow-dry with a round brush.

4. Long live the butterfly haircut

This one’s a cheat code for summer 2024 hairstyles. Hitting the fashion spotlight in 2023 with celebrities Hailee Steinfeld and Sydney Sweeney, the butterfly haircut is decidedly TikTok’s favourite throwback hairstyle this season. Bringing a whimsical touch to summer, this style features long, feathery layers that create a soft, fluttery effect, reminiscent of a butterfly's wings. The butterfly haircut is perfect for adding volume and movement to any hair type, making it a versatile choice for summer fun.

How to style: Apply a volumising mousse to damp hair and blow-dry with a round brush, lifting at the roots for maximum volume. Use a curling wand to create soft waves and finish with a light hold hairspray to maintain the fluttery layers.
