Do you subscribe to the philosophy of “change the hair, change the woman”? If you do, then you might be considering a fresh haircut after the year that was 2020. Changing up your hair style can be as much a statement of your personality and development as it is about fashion. In 2020, many of us had to do our hair from home and master the art of the box-dye and even cutting our own fringe. We hope that this year we get to return to the salons for a professional cut. With this in mind, we’re rounding up the 5 biggest haircut trends that you’ll want to consider trying in 2021.
A lop is slightly longer than your traditional bob, coming down well below the chin and usually touching the shoulders. The focus of this trend is as much on the texture of the hair as the length. You want to create bouncy curls, with the ringlet style being perfect for this shorter length of hair. You can add a set of curtain bangs or wear your hair pulled back like Bella Hadid did when she was rocking this look.
The Blunt Bob
If the curly lob isn’t for you, try the structured bob. This style requires a little more maintenance than the previous one, but it’s the perfect choice for a professional look. The blunt bob is a favourite of Khloe Kardashian, who changes her hair out as often as most people change their shoes. You can replicate this trend with a middle parting and by cutting your hair until it sits between your chin and shoulder blades.
Long Layers + Unicorn Shades
It’s never been easier to try a new hair colour without the fear of commitment. Virtually every haircare brand has come out with their own wash-out colour formulas, meaning you can test drive a colour before making the permanent switch. This mermaid worthy shade of blue that Hilary Duff is wearing is a perfect example of a unicorn shade. The longer, layered haircut complements a unicorn shade perfectly and gives it the real estate to stand out and make a statement.
If you’re an avid follower of fashion and beauty trends, you’re likely seeing the 70s aesthetic everywhere, with hairstyles being no exception. The secret to a 70s haircut is all in the bangs. Ask your hairstylist to focus on recreating the classic curtain bangs, which should sweep to both sides of your face and frame your features. This haircut is an easy way to change up your look and give your appearance a vintage feel. You can level up these bangs by adding volume and texture for a Farrah Fawcett inspired look.
The pixie haircut was everywhere in the mid-2000s and is back with a bang. This haircut is perfect for anyone wants to make a drastic change to their hair and its effortlessly chic. This cut is a classic choice that will never go out of style. You can get adventurous and focus on adding volume to your roots for a fuller look or recreating Keira Knightley’s famous pixie with a more a-line shape.
