Love it or hate it, but TikTok is big when it comes to trendsetting. Don’t get me wrong, I found it pretty hard to understand too - forgive me, I’m just a clueless millennial - but once you get the hang of it, TikTok can be pretty fun.
Besides dances, storytime, and cringe-worthy improvised acting, the all-video social network is also going strong in the fashion and beauty department - having a lot to teach us all about the latest trends and how to recreate them on a budget. That’s it, TikTok is not just a social for you to marvel at celebrities, but it shows content generated from regular people targeting regular people, just like you and I, my dear reader. Ready to check out the latest TikTok hair trends?
TikTok Trends: #hairtok
What does #hairtok mean? Well, as you can imagine people on the social media like to hashtag #hairtok anything that has to do with hair and hairstyles, hair hacks, hair dye and more. With over one billion users, it’s easy to see how a good hair tutorial on #hairtok can become an internet sensation and go viral in a matter of minutes. Let’s see what’s the latest trending on the topic, so you can find your TikTok hairstyle!
Easy & Quick Fake Braids
This is the perfect hairstyle for those that are both looking to take an alternate route to achieve double plaits and make them look fluffier and peppier - but it’s also a quirky and useful way to tie your hair in style, even if you have little to no braiding skills.

How To Wear A Bandana
Headscarfs are all the rage right now, especially since the Y2K aesthetic has made a roaring comeback. More and more celebrities and influencers are brushing the dust off their old silk bandanas, and for those who may be a little rusty this video shows how to wear a headscar properly.

This is the latest trick to give your ponytail an extra kick. People with thinner hair know how painful it is when you put your hair up in a ponytail and end up looking like a Rugrats character. And whilst this technique might be helpful, if you’d like to achieve the thick, long and luscious ponytail of your dreams you can always get a wrap-around clip-in ponytail hair extension here.

Another alternative hairstyle for those mini-pigtails that everyone is trying to recreate so much, lately. Both Gen Z and millennials are giving a go to this childhood hairstyle, and this TikTok user reveals how you can make it look even cooler and trendier by criss-crossing your sections of hair before tying them up with colourful mini-hair ties.

The Bella Hadid Middle-parted Ponytail
This “clean girl hairstyle” is doing great right now. Whether you want to wear it with makeup or not, it’s a personal choice - but the middle-parted ponytail is nothing new. The beloved middle-part that Gen Z has vivaciously brought back from the 90s has been incorporated in the sleek high pony that Kim Kardashian loves so much. Who’s the biggest celeb-fan of this TikTok hair style? But model Bella Hadid, of course.
Claw Clip Half-up, Half-down
Claw clips (also known as jaw clips) have made a huge comeback too. Who would’ve thought? What for us was a simple way to keep our hair away from our face is now considered a super-trendy hair accessory to always keep in your hair or in your bag. Go figure. Either way, go get your old collection of 90s claw clips - because they’re back! If you’d like to know more about this TikTok hairstyle, check out our blog on how to put your hair up in a claw clip.

Claw Clip Twist
Just like the previous TikTok hair trend, this hairstyle is a more elegant, updo-like take on the classic claw-clip hairstyle. Ideal for longer hair or people wearing permanent real human hair extensions, this look sees your tresses being tied up in a knot and sealed with a claw clip of your choice.
