TikTok trends can be unexpected and here’s another, cool or crazy (you decide) trend that emerged yet again

This 2023 TikTok hair trend is wild

Edgy hair fusion

The TikTok Jellyfish Cut, as described by Raven Hurtado, a stylist at Maxine Salon in Chicago, is gaining traction for its gender-neutral appeal and bold, artistic vibe. This hybrid style combines the dynamics of a bob with the edgy allure of a mullet, offering a striking blend of short and long hair simultaneously.

Mari Trombley, a prominent figure in this trend, flaunts her bi-level hair on TikTok, showcasing its unique styling and coloring possibilities. She attributes her inspiration for this style to the character Yuna from ‘Final Fantasy,’ citing the character’s blunt bob and lengthy braid as a childhood fascination. Growing up partly in Japan, Trombley was exposed to similar hairstyles through anime characters, which further fueled her inclination towards the Jellyfish Cut.

While Trombley and other users celebrate this trend on TikTok, it hasn’t escaped criticism. Opinions on the platform vary, with some labeling the cut as “ugly” while others praise its edginess. Trombley, however, encourages self-expression and breaking boundaries when it comes to personal style. She emphasizes the freedom to change appearance at will, promoting the idea that personal style is entirely individualistic.

The Jellyfish Cut joins the ranks of divisive haircuts, following the wave of the pageboy cut and the resurgence of ’90s-inspired micro bangs akin to Uma Thurman’s style in “Pulp Fiction.” Its distinctive blend of edginess and artistic flair marks it as the latest contender in the ever-evolving world of daring hair trends.
