Bob it!

The bob never strays far from our trusted fashion radar. In fact, we can’t remember a year when it hasn’t dominated the main hair trends – can you? This year, we’re pleased to report that the bob is back with a vengeance, so if you’re contemplating the chop, we say: do it now!

Not only will this haircut provide you with some much-needed cool relief, being one of this summer’s most fashionable haircuts, it’ll also ensure that you step out in style. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out Taylor Swift, Rhianna and Lily Collins – they’ve all nailed this look!

Micro fringe

Cool, directional and certainly worthy of its fashion status, the ultra short fringe – AKA micro bangs – is big news this season.

While we know that this trend won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd, a daringly brief, blunt fringe is sure to win you instant style points. Those with oval faces or slightly bigger foreheads will be able to work this look best. Who says you have to get rid of your bangs come hot weather season, right?

Long Layers

Fun, flirty and always stylish, long layers are the perfect way to add shape, texture, and movement to longer hair. If you’re after a look that falls at the more classic end of the fashionable haircuts spectrum, this feminine style might just be for you.

If you think it’s a little too classic, why not go one step further and add some highly textured layers to really accentuate that dramatic, yet laid-back movement. Just ask your stylist to take large vertical sections of your hair and point-cut into each section, creating a soft, ragged edge. The result is beach-worthy locks with heaps of natural-looking, lived-in textures.

The Shag

The shag is a great way to enhance texture, shape and movement into a mid-length cut. Just look at Cindy Crawford (circa mid-90s) for inspiration – she nailed this ultimate bedhead look and, now, so can you!

With its perfectly undone feel and just the right amount of dishevelment, this is a cut that’s perfect for hot weather season. We’d recommend giving this cut yet another head-turning edge by applying a healthy dose of salt spray to your hair, like the Toni&Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray (£7.49*) and scrunching it up for best effect.

Pixie cut

Cool, fashion-forward and cute without being girly, the pixie is a another cut that crops up on our fashion radar every single year. This short crop is not only one of the most fashionable haircuts of summer, it’s also perfect for keeping you cool and stylish when the temperature rises. Plus, there are countless ways you can style this cut every morning, as it looks great curly, wavy or even poker straight! The choice, as they say, is yours!

Wavy bob

No doubt about it, the wavy bob is one of this season’s most fashionable haircuts – favoured by models, actresses and social media stars alike. Well, who wouldn’t want to look like they’ve just stepped off the beach, right? To nail this look, make the VO5 Give Me Texture Dry Texturising Spray (£3.99*) your new BFF. Just scrunch it into towel-dried hair and use a curling iron to finish off the look for best effect!

So, which one of these fashionable haircuts is your favourite?
