Top 20 On-Trend Haircuts That Are Going Huge In 2023

“If your hair is done properly you can get away with anything”


When choosing a haircut, it is important to consider your hair type, face shape, and personal style. It is also important to find a hairstylist who is experienced in cutting your type of hair and who can help you to create a haircut that you love.

Hair trends come and go, but there’s no better time to try something different than the new year, which is why now is the perfect time to visit your hairstylist. If you’ve been paying any attention to social media lately you’ve no doubt noticed some of the hair trends that are currently all the rage. Whether you’re a DIY-er or only trust your hair to your beloved stylist, trends like the butterfly, octopus, and wolf cuts are popping up everywhere. People are using their hair as an extension of their personal style now more than ever, which means it’s the perfect time to get that haircut you’ve been coveting. The beauty of hair is that if you don’t love it, you can always grow it out and try something different.

Whether you’ve been itching to make a drastic change or just want a bit of an update, the hottest hair trends of 2023 have something for everyone. Short hair “is going to be the haircut of 2023,” hair professional Larry King tells Glamour. “I think girls are going to really move forward into short hair,” adding, “it gives you so much individuality and makes you stand out — it’s really striking.” 

“A great attitude is like a good haircut, it can make all the difference in the world.”

From variations on the classic bob haircut to different lengths and layers, we’re here to give you all the inspiration you need to start 2023 off with a bang. (Get it? Bang!) Here are 15 on-trend haircuts you’ll be asking for all of 2023.

1. Butterfly hair

If you’ve been longing to cut your hair short but aren’t quite ready to commit, a butterfly haircut may be exactly what you need. Shorter layers frame the face, giving volume and the illusion of shorter hair while longer layers sit below the shoulders. Biolage global ambassador Sunnie Brook created the look and told Hair.com, “Anyone can try this cut, but it’s best for wavy or curly hair.”

2. The soft bob

The soft bob is a looser, casual take on the classic, more structured bob. It allows you to embrace the movement and texture of your hair without the straight, crisp lines we usually associate with a bob haircut. This cut looks amazing if you have some natural wave in your hair, as well as adding texture and movement to those with fine hair.

3. Long layers

We’re seeing lots of shorter cuts emerge as trendsetters in 2023, but long, layered locks will never go out of style. Layers help add body and movement to long hair and work especially well with hair that already has some natural wave or texture. They’re also easy to maintain, look great when you grow them out, and give you versatility when it comes to styling your hair.

4. Chanel haircut

A modern take on Coco Chanel’s classic bob, the Chanel bob is typically cut blunt at chin length, or slightly longer, and has a lot of movement. This look has a deep side part and is often paired with bangs that give it a Parisian feel. Its simplicity makes it super sexy and sleek, but what’s even more attractive about this haircut is how low maintenance it is.

5. Octopus haircut

Loosely resembling the shape of the sea creature it’s named after, this cut will give you lots of layers and volume on top with longer, layered pieces that fall on or past your shoulders. The octopus cut is the newest take on the shag and mullet that we’ve seen dominating trends recently and not only looks great but is also easy to wear since it doesn’t require a ton of styling.

6. Wolf cut

The wolf cut can be described as the love child of the shag and mullet and has seen a huge rise in popularity recently thanks to thousands of TikTok users taking scissors to their hair as they try to create the look at home. If you love a cut that will give you volume at the top of your head with some movement and texture near the sides and the bottom, this look may be for you.

7. The pixie

Short hair will be big in 2023, which means we’ll be seeing a lot more pixie haircuts with a lot of different variations of the classic look. Celebrities like Zoe Kravitz, Halsey, Charlize Theron, and Florence Pugh are all fans of the pixie and show how gorgeous it looks. Whether it has a slightly longer bang, a bit of length at the back, or an all-over short cut, you’re going to be seeing a lot of the pixie cut in 2023.

8. Wispy bangs

Wispy bangs are coming in hot for 2023 — and for good reason. These look amazing on almost everyone and give softness and movement to every hairstyle, regardless of length. “Wispy bangs are such a trend right now because they are a low-maintenance take on blunt bangs,” celebrity stylist Nubia Rëzo tells Real Simple. If you’re looking to try out bangs in 2023, wispy bangs are a great choice.

9. Short shag

Combining these two hot styles has created one of the most popular looks you’ll see in 2023. Just because you don’t have long hair doesn’t mean you can’t rock a shag cut. This look is also great if you’ve been wanting to go shorter but don’t want to commit to a full pixie cut or short bob. This shag gives you lots of movement and works great for all types of hair.

10. Curtain bang short bob

Curtain bangs add a softness to a short, blunt bob. In fact, stylist Anabel Santos explained to Bustle that “a blunt bob, or a bob that is the same length all around, is made sweeter with the addition of curtain bangs,” and we have to agree. Curtain bangs give you a few different styling options with a short bob that you may not have without them, too.

11. Mid-length hair

We’ve talked a lot about short haircuts for 2023, but mid-length hair is still going to be popular in the new year. We’re seeing a lot of mid-length cuts embracing texture and showcasing waves, which make this cut not only gorgeous to look at but easy to style and maintain. The bombshell blowout is also making a resurgence for 2023 and looks amazing on mid-length hair.

12. Full curls

Put those straightening irons away because full, bouncy curls are having a moment! After years of straight hair dominating the trends, curls are back and more gorgeous than ever. Endless tutorials have been posted online illustrating how to rock your natural curls, helping to make it one of 2023’s hottest trends. Adding a fringe is even more on-trend for the coming year.

13. Curtain bangs

Curtain bangs aren’t going anywhere in 2023, and for good reason. These face-framing long bangs look good on almost anyone and work on a variety of hair lengths and textures. They’re incredibly versatile and can be a great way to change up your one-length hair without making a drastic change.

14. The curly shag

The shag works on many different types of hair, and for 2023, the curly shag is going to be big. The shag gives volume on the top while helping to reduce bulk through the sides and ends. Adding a curly fringe is another hot look for 2023 that highlights the face in all the right spots.

15. The textured bob

Low maintenance, sexy, and chic are all adjectives that accurately describe the textured bob. Take a traditional bob and texturize the ends to add movement without having to add a lot of layers. “It’s a super sweet bob with a grungy edge that works with so many different face shapes and hair textures,” celebrity hairdresser Jay Birmingham told Glamour. This is the perfect style if you’ve been looking for something that requires less work.

16. Bottleneck bangs

Bottleneck bangs are just one of the current bang trends that are -ohso hot for 2023. This look emulates the look of a bottleneck, with the bangs sitting closer together at the top of your forehead as they flare out to frame your face. This is a great, low-maintenance style for those who want to ease into the idea of having bangs without cutting a heavy fringe.

17. The curve cut

The beauty of the curve cut is it can work with long or short hair and looks especially great if you’re growing your hair out. The hair is cut in a ‘U’ or ‘V’ shape with soft layers to allow it to fall or curve around the face. This cut also looks great with hair worn up or down, making it versatile and practical.

18. Mix and match cuts

Pro hairstylist Paul Percival explained to Glamour that the DIY trend of seeing people cut their own hair and combine different styles will be a big trend in 2023. “You might see the shag or wolf cut turned into the octopus cut, or the mullet and shag turned into the shullet,” he stated. If TikTok has taught us anything, it’s that people aren’t afraid to experiment with their hairstyles.

19. The jaw-length bob

The jaw-length bob is back in 2023, as we’re seeing a lot of shorter cuts gain popularity. “Bobs never really go out of fashion,” editorial hairstylist Neil Moodie told Refinery29, “but what changes each season is the length. At the moment the best length to have is to the jaw.” This style is great for spring and summer, but we’ll also be rocking it this fall and winter.

20. Wednesday Addams-inspired fringe

Pop culture has a huge influence on hair trends, so it’s no surprise that people are flocking to their stylists to recreate a style popularized in Netflix’s smash hit show “Wednesday.” Bangs are already a huge trend for 2023, and actress Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday Addams wears a heavy fringe that sits just below her eyebrow, making these bangs one of 2023’s most popular trends.

How haircut affect your personality?

  • It can boost your confidence. When you get a haircut that you love, it can make you feel more confident and attractive. This can lead to you feeling better about yourself and your appearance, which can have a positive impact on your personality and overall mood.
  • It can help you express yourself. Hairstyle is a form of self-expression, and it can be a way to show the world who you are and what you’re about. If you’re feeling adventurous, you might try a new, bold hairstyle that reflects your personality. Or, if you’re looking for a more subtle change, you might try a new color or style that still allows you to express yourself.
  • It can help you feel more in control. Sometimes, life can feel overwhelming and out of control. But when you get a haircut, it can be a small act of self-care that gives you a sense of control. You get to choose the style, the length, and the color. And when you walk out of the salon with a new ‘do, you can feel like you’ve taken a step towards taking control of your life.
  • It can help you let go of the past. If you’ve been through a difficult time, a haircut can be a way to let go of the past and start fresh. When you cut off your hair, you’re symbolically cutting off the negative emotions and memories that are holding you back. This can help you move on and embrace a new chapter in your life.

Of course, the way haircut affects your personality is also influenced by your own individual beliefs and experiences. For example, if you’ve always been told that long hair is more feminine, then getting a short haircut might make you feel more confident and assertive. Or, if you’ve always had a conservative haircut, then getting a more daring style might make you feel more creative and adventurous. Ultimately, the way haircut affects your personality is up to you.

Some additional thoughts on how haircut can help you and affect your personality:

  • It can help you feel more comfortable in your own skin. When you find a hairstyle that you love and that makes you feel good, it can help you feel more comfortable in your own skin. This is because your hairstyle is a reflection of your personality, and when you feel good about your hairstyle, it can boost your overall confidence and self-esteem.
  • It can help you make a good first impression. When you meet someone for the first time, your hairstyle is one of the first things they’ll notice. So, if you want to make a good first impression, it’s important to choose a hairstyle that is well-groomed and that flatters your face shape and features.
  • It can help you achieve your goals. If you have a big goal that you’re working towards, like getting a promotion or starting your own business, a new haircut can be a great way to show yourself that you’re serious about achieving your goals. It can also give you a boost of confidence that you need to take action and make things happen.

So, if you’re looking for a way to boost your confidence, express yourself, or take control of your life, a new haircut might be just what you need.
