While TikTok is well known for it’s dances, lip synching videos, delicious recipes, and micro-blog content, I’ve recently discovered another favorite trend to watch on the app: TikTok hairstyles.
Whether you have short, medium-length, or long hair that’s straight, wavy, or curly, there is a TikTok hairstyle waiting to take you by storm. And since TikTok videos are only 3 minutes or less, these looks are easy to recreate. From simple messy buns and ponytail upgrades, to cute and easy half up half down hairstyles, to braided looks and gorgeous updos, we’ve curated our favorite TikTok hairstyles for all hair lengths below!
6 TikTok Hairstyles for Short Hair
Simple Half Up Half Down Look | @hairby_chrissy
If you have a bob or lob and want to keep your hair out of your eyes while still maintaining a bit of style, this is a great look to try. I think it looks cute with wavy hair, but it will look just as stylish with super straight or curly hair imo. This is one of the easiest TikTok hairstyles for short-haired gals, and all you need are clear elastics to recreate this look!

Three 90s-Inspired Looks | @danaarose
If your hair sits at your shoulders, or slightly lower, and you’re looking for 90s-inspired TikTok hairstyles, these looks are perfect! She starts with a cute, low bun with long bangs, continues with adorable half up pigtails with braids, and ends with a sleek half up pony that you can dress up or dress down. You’ll need hair gel and a toothbrush or fine tooth comb to get the slicked back look in her last hairstyle, and I love how she uses a straightener to add a ‘flip’ to the ends of her hair.

Easy 5-Minute Twist Hairstyle | @alyssarayelee
This is another super easy half up look for short-hair gals, and since it’s a twisted style, it’s a great hairstyle for those who are trying to grow out their bangs. She uses clear mini hair clips, but you can use colored butterfly hair clips to add more of a 90s vibe!

Easy Side Braid | @aphilp
Side braids are such a versatile look for shoulder-length to long-haired gals, and I love how simple and effortless this hairstyle is. She starts with her hair curled in loose waves, and the addition of butterfly barrettes really pulls this hairstyle together.

Stylish Low Messy Bun | @simplyshellyjo
A collection of TikTok hairstyles for medium length hair wouldn’t be complete without some sort of messy bun. The way she adds twists and positions her bun towards the nap of her neck makes this look slightly more formal, making it another great day-to-night look!
Super easy hairstyle for medium to long hair! Takes less than five minutes but looks far more complex. #simpleupdo #easyhairstyletutorial easyhair￼

Middle Part Ponytail | @annececilius
I love an upgraded ponytail, and if you’re looking for TikTok hairstyles you can wear year-round, this is a great one. Ponytails are perfect for the hot weather months, but the middle part in this hairstyle makes it a great look for sweater season too. If you have a lot of flyaways, apply a little hair gel to a toothbrush or fine tooth comb to keep everything in place.

Super Easy Jaw Clip Hairstyle |@tonirose.co
If you have fairly long hair and a large jaw clip, and you’re looking for super easy TikTok hairstyles for second- and third-day hair, this is the look for you! You can change this style up by playing around with your part – slick it all back, part it to the side, or opt for a middle part with curly tendrils on either side.

Fancy Low Pony | @tonirose.co
When I found @tonirose.co while researching TikTok hairstyles for long hair, I may have gone down a bit of a rabbit hole lol. She has so many simple and gorgeous tutorials that are so incredibly easy to recreate. In addition to the jaw clip style above, I had to share this ‘fancy’ low pony as it looks so effortless and chic. The scarf hair scrunchie is the perfect accessory for this look, don’t you think?

Half Up Hairstyle with a Head Scarf | @aisha.jam
I love half up half down hairstyles, and this one is by far one of my faves to date. It’s really just a simple half hair knot, but the addition of the head scarf makes it look much more glamorous.
