"As we transition into spring 2024, the deep side part will emerge as an elegant go-to for virtually any hairstyle," celebrity hairstylist Ikeyia Powell explains. "This look is versatile for all hair types, from sleek, straight strands to voluminous curls." The deep side part is a timeless style that effortlessly adds sophistication and drama to any spring hairstyle. By simply shifting the parting, you can instantly refresh your look with a subtle yet impactful change. Whether you prefer to finger-part your strands or reach for a rattail comb to create the parting of your desire precisely, the options are endless.

2.  Lots of Long Layers

This look is all about creating dimension and movement with lots of layers cascading down, whether you have long strands, a mid-length lob, or shoulder-length hair. Powell emphasizes the versatility of this trend, stating, "From face-framing layers to wispy ends, lots of long layers can enhance any hairstyle, adding depth and texture." Whether you opt for subtle face-framing layers to accentuate your features or go for dramatic long layers for added volume, when done correctly, this style can really take your mane to the next level. Powell recommends consulting with your stylist to customize the layers to best suit your face shape. With long, wispy layers, you can achieve a fresh, modern look that's effortlessly chic and the perfect switch-up for the season.

3.  Curtain Bangs 

"Curtain bangs are a timeless style that complements long hair beautifully, adding a touch of softness and framing the face in a flattering way," Powell notes. Whether you're rocking a wolf cut or styling your hair in an elegant updo, curtain bangs effortlessly elevate any look. With their versatile appeal, curtain bangs offer a stylish solution for those seeking a change without committing to a drastic cut. 

4.  Modernized Mullet 

Behold the return of the mullet. "This daring style, once relegated to the past, is making a bold comeback, reimagined with modern twists and bold hair colors," says Powell. What makes this cut so fun is that it’s the perfect means of adding extra personality to a pixie cut. The mullet is a sure-fire way to inject an edgy and rebellious spirit into your spring look. “With its distinctive shorter front and longer back, this haircut defies convention and exudes confidence,” adds Powell. We love a bold mullet because it allows you to buck expectations and stand out from the crowd, making the punk-rock chic style a must-try for those seeking to make a memorable style statement this spring.

5. Textured Blunt Bob

It's safe to say that iterations of the blunt cut are here to stay for the long haul. "Whether you're already sporting a blunt cut or considering trying it for the first time, incorporating textured layers for added dimension and movement is the perfect approach this season," says Powell. Pro tip: Enhance your natural texture with a light spritz of a texture spray like AMIKA Un.Done Volume and Matte Texture Spray for that effortless, undone look. This low-maintenance haircut allows you to opt for a French-inspired chic look or a more laid-back, natural-texture finish. Want to experiment with color? Powell advises enhancing your wavy or textured blunt bob with balayage highlights.

6.  Shag Haircut 

To all my curly girls, listen up—we've found the perfect haircut for you! “The shag haircut is a dream come true for those with curly hair," says Powell. She recommends embracing the air-dry method to enhance the haircut's tousled look. To further amplify the shag's texture, opt for a lightweight mousse such as AVEDA Nutriplenish Styling Treatment Foam to define your curls and add volume. The beauty of the shag haircut lies in its versatility.  "It can be customized to suit your curl pattern and even work with straighter hair textures," Powell adds. Whether you have loose waves or tight curls, the shag haircut offers a trendy and adaptable style that celebrates natural texture, making it a go-to choice for spring 2024 and beyond.

7.  Chin-Length Bobs 

Let’s face it: Short haircuts are always in style, and this spring, we're seeing a resurgence of the sleek, chin-length bob. Powell explains that the chin-length bob is not only stylish but also practical, suiting various face shapes and hair textures. "It's a chic haircut with minimal maintenance, ideal for the woman on the go,” explains Powell. 

8. Voluminous Blowouts 

This style is all about amplifying your natural volume and adding a touch of drama to your everyday look. Drawing inspiration from the runways, this trend screams boldness. A voluminous blowout is the most effortless means to instantly elevate long hair or a chic bob.
