16 Gorgeous TikTok Hair Ideas to Show Your Stylist ASAP


From the long, layered butterfly haircut to edgy skunk stripe hair, TikTok hair trends are everywhere—and likely will be for a while. TikTok is basically the ideal hair inspiration platform—not only does it bring beauty trends right to the palm of our hand, but it also provides countless clips and multiple angles of each style. This way, users can actually see what each haircut or color looks like while in motion, and on the head of a fellow “normal” person. Translation? Beauty, along with industry-wide trends, is becoming increasingly accessible to consumers.

“We are becoming informed consumers of beauty. Hair, nails, makeup: It’s all part of our culture now,” celebrity hairstylist Marc Mena says. “Social media has made it very easy for users to learn how to do anything, whether that’s installing clip-in extensions or cutting curtain bangs.” Basically, all you need is a phone (and well, to download TikTok) to become a beauty insider.

Ahead, 16 TikTok-viral hair trends you’ll want to show your IRL stylist for inspiration (unless you’re more of the DIY type). Get ready to screenshot.

Butterfly Cut


The butterfly cut has emerged as one of TikTok’s most popular styles, amassing nearly 5 billion views on the platform. As for why it’s so popular? It pretty much looks good on everyone, and it adds volume, movement, and texture to all types of hair.

Two-Toned Neon


Neon hair color” is blowing up online with 9 billion views on TikTok. Meanwhile, the e-girl aesthetic two-toned color look is trending, meaning pops of neon will be all over your FYP before you know it.

Statement Extensions


Hair extensions of all lengths and sizes are all over TikTok, racking up 2 billion views on the app. The most popular way to wear them is with a super-long ponytail or braid.

Wavy Lob


The lob, otherwise known as the long bob, has nearly 100 million views on TikTok, while “wavy lob” has 20 million. Much of the wavy-lob-enthusiasm was actually inspired by Ana de Armas’s style in Deep Water, as referenced in Cat Quinn’s viral clip on the look. “My dream hair,” she says of the chop.

Curtain Bangs


Curtain bangs are universally flattering, and thus are all over TikTok: The hashtag #curtainbangs has nearly 2 billion views, while the phrase “DIY curtain bangs” follows closely behind with 1 billion.

Wolf Cut


The wolf cut, which is yet another take on the shag, is edgy and cool, requires little to no styling, and works for all hair lengths and types. So really it’s no wonder it already has 1.3 billion views on TikTok.

Chunky Highlights


Those ’90s-inspired chunky highlights never go out of style, and TikTok trends prove it. At the time of this writing, “highlights,” “chunky highlights,” and “balayage” have a combined 12 billion views on TikTok.

Zigzag Parts


Bella Hadid famously wore her hair in a zig-zag hair part, and #zigzagpart now has 200 million views on TikTok. Coincidence? I think not.

Chin-Length Layers


Chin-length layers, or chin bangs, are also blowing up on TikTok. In fact, both phrases have a combined 100 million views on the app. That number will likely soon rise, though, seeing as most of the videos read: “Hair trend alert!”

Blunt Bobs


You can’t go wrong with a bob, and TikTok has fully embraced the cropped cut. “Bob haircut” has 305 million views on the app, while “short bob” and “blunt cut” have 400 million and 100 million, respectively.

Dip-Dyed Ends


Fun hair colors are all the rage, no matter where they’re placed. But dip-dyed ends are especially popular on TikTok, where thousands of trending videos documenting dip-dye hair transformations have gone viral.

Bombshell Blowouts


The bombshell blowout from the ’90s has had a TikTok-inspired resurgence—so much so that volumizing dry brushes are now trending on the app as well.

Face-Framing Money Pieces


The Y2K-era money piece highlight trend has come back with a vengeance, with so many variations on its name (butterfly balayage, face-framing highlights, etc.) that it’s impossible to track the true extent of its popularity on TikTok. That said, “money piece,” “money piece hair,” and “money piece highlights” have amassed a combined 500 million views.

Braided Tendrils


Baby braids and braided tendrils are a TikTok go-to, with 8 billion views on the app. And countless celebrities have since worn the look, including Hailey Bieber, Olivia Rodrigo, and Bella Hadid (of course).

Octopus Cut

The octopus cut is yet another evolution on the shag, combining the long layers of a hybrid wolf cut and a shag, plus a hint of grown-out bob. And it’s already so popular that “octopus haircut” has a whopping 3.4 billion views on TikTok, despite having been coined early this year.

Skunk Stripe Hair


Skunk stripe hair has amassed nearly 200 million views on TikTok, while web searches for the two-toned look have skyrocketed by 800% in the last year. Celebrities like Bella Hadid, Dua Lipa, and Billie Eilish have all sported versions of the alternative style, meaning Pepé Le Pew is officially an influencer.
