Is it:

WAVE

a known force, comes in circulations

Forces of nature travel in waves.

a gesture which is done by cats untiringly

Cats seem to "wave" their paws in the air, and perhaps by "untiringly" you are referring to those Maneki-nekos, or perpetually waving cats.

an amount of feelings

You can experience a "wave" of emotion.

messes your hair until you look good

You can have a permanent wave put in your hair

Not 100% sure, but is it:

TENSION?

a known force, comes in circulations

Tension is a natural force, and circular motion can create tension, eg swinging something around on a string will make the string tense

a gesture which is done by cats untiringly

Cats often stiffen, or tense

an amount of feelings

Feeling "tension" can be a build-up of emotion

messes your hair until you look good

Apparently some hair-straightening techniques involve applying tension.

• no it's not, but nice guess

• @Jannis by the way, it is spelt as "fourth" and no "forth". In fact, "forth" relates to going forward :) Sep 25, 2018 at 10:21

I think it is

LICK

If you lick an ice cream cone or something, your tongue moves in circles

a gesture which is done by cats untiringly

Cats lick themselves constantly

an amount of feelings

"I don't give a lick!"

messes your hair until you look good

• Welcome to Puzzling.SE! Nice answer! Sep 25, 2018 at 16:51
• NIce Answer, but it's just a homograph with 2 different meanings. instead of 4, but I guess you don't give a lick and rather lick ice cream in circles, howsoever you do that
