French Inspired Pixie Cuts

For a hairstyle with plenty of "je ne sais quoi" this summer, go for a French inspired gamine crop.  This stylish version of the classic pixie has longer hair on top coupled with the traditional pixie short crop  at the back and sides.

This look channels that famous stylish French nonchalance, with tousled layers and waves on the crown of the head giving this look a fashionable undone style.  The good news is that no styling tools are needed for this look: it looks best just styled with your fingers and a little mousse.

The Heartthrob Bob

Nineties nostalgia is everywhere this year, including women's hair trends with the arrival of the popular heartthrob bob.   This is another choppy style with close cropped layers at the nape of the neck plus longer curtains of hair sweeping across the cheekbones at the front.  This relaxed cut falls naturally around the face giving it a casual, lived-in vibe.   

This cut works well with all hair types and textures  and will keep you cool over the summer as it's cut short round your neck.  When time is short, you'll be pleased to hear that this another style that you can just wash, tousle and go!

Collar Bone Grazing Lobs

If you aren't quite ready for a full crop, we recommend the chic collar bone grazing lob.   This flattering cut is great for warm summer days as it allows you to style it in multiple different ways, including putting it up if you want to.  

You will find that just losing a few inches off your hair will give your look a major style reboot.  Shorter layers breathe new life into an on-trend shag haircut, and add volume and thickness to fine hair.

The lob works equally well of all hair textures.  Take a look at Laura Harrier's chic locks for inspiration.

The Modern Diana Haircut

Princess Diana was a style icon for all time, and her look still has an impact on the fashion world today.  The modern Diana bob is everywhere on Instagram and TikTok this summer as people continue take inspiration from her look (see also: blue eyeliner, cycling shorts and co-ordinating suits).

The modern Diana cut includes the princess' famous side parting plus multiple layers for volume.   It's also a versatile, low maintenance look when it comes to styling: simply apply some volumising products for a fashionable messy look.  With this cut you can also choose to blow dry it smooth, or wear it slicked back with gel as the princess sometimes did.
