Rock a New Haircut in 2021
I think we’re all ready for a little change after that year we just had! If we’ve learned anything, it’s that we need to stand up, be empowered, and confident. We’re seeing that attitude trending with hairstyles this year. Many are embracing a natural look, with little to no styling products and heating tools with cuts that can be relaxed and edgy or professional-looking with just a little work.
Whether you want a short look, a long style, or something in between, 2021 is seeing many haircut trends that are destined to fit your lifestyle and personality.
Go Big with Bangs
You’ll be seeing a large variety of bangs this year in many different styles. No matter which haircut you choose, if you want bangs, there will be plenty of options to choose from.
Wispy bangs – These are a perfect choice whether you have straight hair, wavy hair, or curly hair. Instead of being a precise, blunt cut, it’s more of a ruffled, layered look to frame the face and look light and airy. The carefree style allows them to look good, no matter how they’ve moved during the day and they are a great complement to any haircut and any length.
Side-swept bangs – Look for these to be a strong pick for 2021. These are a little different than the old side-swept bangs of the past. Instead of a dramatic sweep to the side which can look a bit short and awkward at times, we’ve finally gotten these bangs right by cutting them a bit longer and wispier. These give a sexy look to an updo, can be sleek and sophisticated for the office, or fun and flirty with your hair loose.
Curtain bangs – This is the ultimate soft look with any style. These have a touch of retro in them but with a modern sophistication that will definitely give attention around the face without being harsh. These look great whether they were cut yesterday or they’re growing out. As they grow out, they just as gorgeous layers around the face, making them an easy-to-maintain style and don’t need trimming as often as other bangs.
Everyone Loves the Bob
The bob is one of those haircuts that never really goes out of style, it just keeps getting better. We are seeing a more natural look with this year’s bob cut. Perhaps it’s because of the pandemic and quarantining, women are getting back to the natural look and this bob is the perfect look. Whether it’s a blunt, chin-length bob or an asymmetrical cut, we’re loving the movement in the back. Embrace your natural texture and let your bob air dry instead of straightening with a flat iron.
No matter the age, facial structure, or hair texture, the bob cut works for almost everyone. It’s also a great cut for those with thin hair to add volume to their style or have your style use some thinning shears which will allow your thick hair to lay perfectly.
Shoulder-length is All the RageGood news for those growing out their hair, medium-length hairstyles are now a thing. No more “awkward in-between stage”, shoulder-length is totally in this year. Whether it’s blunt cuts like the lob, asymmetrical lobs, or a ton of layers – should-length hair is here to stay for 2021. Whether you want to throw your hair into a ponytail, a top-knot, or a messy bun, this is the perfect length to try some new hairstyles or leave your hair loose and wild.
Shag It in 2021
Women are feeling confident and empowered and are showing it in their hairstyles for 2021. The shag is trending, with a lot of loose layers to flow naturally and have great movement. Add some feathered or shaggy bangs for a low-maintenance look that can be dressed up in a professional look or shagged out for a rock star look. This is an easy wash-and-dry style that will look great all day long with just a little effort in the morning.
Bigger the Better for Afros
If you have a ‘fro – this year get ready to let it go big and natural. Natural big afros are fairly low-maintenance so instead of straightening your hair or wearing extensions, embrace this trend and ditch all the products and heating tools. Your hair will thank you, and you’ll be in-style. It’s a win-win all the way around.
