We Found The Top 7 Haircut Trends For Spring 2023

It’s easy to put off scheduling a haircut. It takes time and effort — and you have kitchen scissors, right? Then there’s the cost, and there’s no way to sugarcoat it: Haircuts are expensive.

Here’s the thing, though: a great haircut can make you feel your best. Sometimes you just need to find the photo (or maybe it’s a TikTok video of the U-shaped haircut or C-shaped layers) that makes you think, that’s the one

To help guide and inspire you in planning a spring refresh cut, we spoke to a handful of hairstylists to get their insight on what constitutes a great new season style. Their insights, ahead. 

The Mullet Pixie

When a hairstylist says, “I’m literally obsessed” with any haircut, my ears perk up. Celebrity hairstylist Dimitris Giannetos tells me that the “mixie” cut (a hybrid mullet and pixie) is the haircut for spring. He references the haircut he recently gave Dixie D’Amelio, but you could also use this look created by stylist Nylza Yepez. The mixie is two parts: choppy bangs in the front and a choppy mullet in the back. For styling, Giannetos recommends a finger comb and go, “very tousled and modern.”

The Butterfly Cut

“I love everything about it,” says celebrity hairstylist Priscilla Valles in reference to the butterfly haircut. “It gives volume and bounce; it’s stylish, it’s chic, it’s sexy, it’s romantic. To me, it screams high fashion but it’s still soft.”

If you’re unfamiliar, the butterfly haircut has a ’70s flair, with shorter layers on top, blended into a series of longer layers to deliver movement and texture. Valles references model Chloé Lloyd, but you’ll find a similar style in this cut created by Spoke & Weal master stylist Lindsay Victoria, which elevates the curtain bang with side parting. For styling, the key is in the blowout: make sure to prep the hair with leave-in conditioner or mousse, then use a large iron or rollers to get the airy volume.

The Cheekbone Bob

The bob is everywhere right now. You can take your influence from Zendaya or Hailey Bieber, or this style out of New York’s Cutler Salon which hits the sweet spot for a true bob: falling between the jawline and cheekbone. “I am loving the shorter ‘French’ bobs, with or without bangs,” says celebrity hairstylist DJ Quintero. He offers a good reminder: “Keep in mind the summer is coming, so the curlier [your hair], the higher maintenance it will become, especially with the humidity.”

Jellyfish Bangs

What a lot of the cuts in this report have in common is that they add angles around the face. Jellyfish bangs, may be the most obvious interpretation. You can find visual inspiration on model Joan Smalls, pictured here, or a softer iteration on Lily Collins, but the makeup is the same: two cheekbone-length layers that create a “jellyfish” effect, slightly disconnected from the rest of the hair, like jellyfish tentacles. “I love that shapes are becoming a bit more graphic and edgy, and [people] aren’t afraid to have fun,” offers Quintero. As for styling? “I would style the hair on the straighter side to show off the angles,” he says. If you’re looking for a new straightener, try the Dyson Corrale.

The Lob

If you’re not inspired by a bob, a lob (long bob) might feel warmer. “I’ve been loving the lob trend recently,” says celebrity stylist Kim Kimble, who references this look she gave Kerry Washington. “It’s perfect for someone who wants to go shorter while still maintaining some length.” What’s nice about a lob, according to Kimble, is that it’s texture inclusive. “This cut can work for all hair types,” she says. “I love how this look comes out with natural curls.”

The Ultra-Short Afro

“We’re going to see a lot of close-cropped Afros coming into 2023,” says expert stylist Tyler Moore on behalf of Live True London, much like this cut by Hair Artist Charlotte Mensah on Instagram. Moore suggests choosing a length of around 1 inch to maintain versatility and allow for some styling if desired.

Popping Curls

As we go through 2023, we will be watching a cultural shift, says Blue Tit’s lead educator for Afro and textured hair, Pashcan’el Mitchell. “More people will embrace their amazing Afros and stunning curls. The vibe is go big or go home, with twist outs to create texture and finger curling to get those curls to pop.” There’s a curly shape out there to suit everyone, says Mitchell.
