As we usher in the new year, it’s time to embrace a fresh wave of hair trends that promise to redefine our beauty standards.
We’ve gathered insights from leading stylists like Helen Davis, Paul Corbett, Managing Director Mia Dellicompagni and Spotlight Artists Lizzie Morgan, Jemima Gartshore, Sianie-Leigh Guest and Tori Evans to bring you the ultimate guide to the top hair trends of 2024. From natural hues to AI-inspired looks, let’s dive into the exciting transformations that await us.
The Return to Natural
According to Helen Davis, Francesco Creative from our Wolverhampton salon, 2024 is the year of embracing the natural you. After a few years of experimental and bold choices, our tribes are leaning towards the classic and timeless beauty of natural hair tones.
Expect to see glosses, block colours, and shiny natural finishes dominating salons. Warm and glowing colours, such as peach tones and buttery blondes will be at the forefront of this trend, creating a harmonious blend of style and authenticity.
Helen predicts that ‘velvet’ hair will be the talk of the town. This luxurious and tactile trend promises to add a touch of opulence to your locks, providing a unique texture that is both alluring and sophisticated. Imagine running your fingers through soft, velvety strands that catch the light in the most enchanting way.
No Colour Colour
“Smoked Amber, Old Money Blonde, Liquid Brunette, and Cherry Cola will reign supreme in 2024 as must-have ‘colours’. These tones are all about that chic, super-cool vibe, adorned with natural golden undertones. Imagine effortlessly wearable hues that exude an expensive and glossy allure all whilst enhancing what you’ve already got! It’s like the “no-makeup makeup” trend, but for your hair!”

Colour Blocking & Bespoke Bobs
Lizzie from Francesco Hair Salon Bramhall anticipates a surge in popularity for colour blocking and French bobs. This trend combines two elements – the chic and timeless bob paired with bold and contrasting colour blocks. The result? A super soft and short hairstyle that exudes modern elegance and confidence. Warm caramel browns are predicted to dominate the colour palette, adding a touch of richness to this stylish combination.
Peach Fuzz: Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2024
In contrast to the vibrant Magenta that dominated last year’s Pantone colour palette, the spotlight for 2024 shifts gracefully to Peach Fuzz, aligning seamlessly with the prevailing trend of embracing natural, golden hues. Named the Color of the Year by Pantone, Peach Fuzz is described as a “warm and cosy shade“, a soft pastel that exudes tenderness while introducing a touch of modernity. This delightful hue offers a perfect escape for those with lighter hair, providing an alternative to the traditional blonde look as we step into the new year. Renowned tastemakers describe Peach Fuzz as a “quietly sophisticated and contemporary peach“, possessing a unique blend of understated elegance and impactful charm.
Hair Bows & Accessories
Sianie-Leigh from Francesco Hair Salon Rugeley predicts that hair bows and accessories will make a strong comeback in 2024. These playful additions are set to adorn hairstyles, offering a whimsical and youthful charm. Whether it’s oversized bows, delicate clips, or statement headbands, expect to see a variety of accessories transforming everyday looks into works of art.
Choppy Shag Cuts, Wolf Cuts, and Crisp Bobs
Tori from Francesco Hair Salon Shrewsbury envisions a return to edgy and structured cuts. Choppy shag cuts, wolf cuts, and crisp bobs are expected to take the spotlight, providing a sharp and modern look. In addition, the introduction of Fox Colour promises to be a game-changer, adding depth and dimension to these bold and textured hairstyles.
Ai Driven Beauty Expectations
Paul Corbett, Creative Director of Advanced Education for Francesco Hair Salon, foresees the rise of AI-driven beauty expectations. With artificial intelligence taking centre stage, we can expect groundbreaking ideas for hairstyling that push the boundaries of creativity. While the beauty landscape might become wild and unpredictable, it promises to be a fun challenge for those daring enough to embrace the future of hair fashion.
Step out of your comfort zone…
As we embark on a new year, the world of hairstyling is set to be a thrilling journey filled with nods to the past and bold leaps into the future. Whether you’re embracing your natural beauty, experimenting with AI-inspired looks, or indulging in the luxury of velvet hair, 2024 promises to be a year of diverse and captivating hair trends.
