When you step out of the salon with a fresh cut, you want to radiate main character energy. Period. You know the scene when the main character walks through a busy city street with the sun on their face, wind in their hair, looking like a million dollars? Yup, that’s the moment you want to recreate (see above for reference), and these on-trend haircuts deliver. Whether you’re wanting to serve Zoey à la Grown-Ish, Bridgerton’s Kate Sharma, or Euphoria’s Maddy Perez, there’s something on this list for you. #NoSideBishesHere.

Serving: Love Quinn in YOU.

The Scandi bob is being crowned the ultimate cool-girl style by pretty much anyone on Instagram. It’s giving fashion editor/ modern-day Carrie Bradshaw vibes. Not only does it look effortless, but it actually requires (almost) zero styling. The bob is cut juuuuust below the jaw line, making it ideal for anyone who wants to make a statement without the maintenance. It creates the perfect frame for the face, accentuating your features, and most importantly, it can be worn with waves, curls, or coils. #Obsessed.

The Sachel

Serving: An edgy, modern-day Rachel Green.

This haircut is going to blow up in the fall, so stay ahead of the trend and get the sachel before September hits. The Sachel is a blend of two iconic looks: the Rachel, a mid-length cut with tons of layers, and the shag, an edgy cut with lots of attitude on top and short, snappy layers. The result? It has the edge of the shag but has the wearability of the Rachel. You can opt for a razor-sharp fringe for a rebellious feel or opt for chin-length bangs for a softer finish. Honestly, it’s completely customizable – just be sure to opt for tons of layers around the front of your face paired with a fringe element.

The Brigitte Bardot

Serving: Bridgerton’s Kate Sharma vibes.

This TikTok has gone viral over the past week, with fans obsessing over the Brigitte Bardot cut on none other than a Brigitte Bardot look-a-like: Shay Sullivan. The resemblance is uncanny, especially with her new ‘do. It’s giving effortless, it’s giving classy, it’s giving expensive.

If you’re wondering how to get the cut yourself, thankfully, Shay doesn’t gatekeep and revealed exactly what she asked her stylist. She confirms, “I got lots of layers all around like I usually do, and then really intense face framing because I really like that dramatic look. Before, I had straight-across bangs, but I really wanted them more curtain this time, so she just touched up the shape and made them more slanted.” Take notes.

Serving: Zoey in Grown-Ish.

The mullet has been trending for the past year, and now it’s entered the curly girl community chat. It’s about damn time if you ask us as the cut translates beautifully with curly locks. The key features of a mullet are the varying lengths – it needs to be cut shorter at the front and side but longer at the back. However, other than that, you can totally customize the look depending on your lewk. Us? We’re drooling over this ultra-glossy, wet-look mullet. When styling the look, don’t be afraid to layer on the product to get that high-shine finish, which everyone is loving RN.

Chin Bangs

Serving: Serena Van Der Woodsen turned Gen Z cool-girl.

It’s official: chin bangs are the new curtain bangs #RIP. So what’s the tea? Well, unlike curtain bangs, chin bangs work whether your hair is curly, straight, or wavy. Thanks to the extra length, they cut frames around the face, so are universally flattering. They also work regardless of your current length. Plus, you can easily style the bangs with a ponytail, making them the perfect transitional hairstyle.
