If last year focused on natural texture and no-fuss hairstyles, 2021 is gearing up to be all that and then some. Ringing in a new year calls for fresh starts of all kinds, making it the perfect time for new hair trends to guide us straight to the salon.
We’re taking last year’s low-maintenance styling up a notch with statement-making cuts that do all the work and call back to decades past—only the fashionable ones, of course. If you’ve been wanting to make a chop, there are shaggy layers, blunt fringe, and retro styles just waiting to be shorn. (We’re talking modern updates on vintage bobs, bangs, and long cuts, too.)
Here are the trendy haircuts you’ll be seeing everywhere this year.
You can add so much more texture to naturally fine hair using layers, layers, and more layers—focusing midway down the hair to the ends ensures you don’t lose too much volume.
Short and Wild Shag
Nothing flatters a head full of curls like a classic shag. It’s definitely the cool girl cut of the bunch.
Blunt Collarbone Cut
A lob that hits right at your collarbone is *the* most flattering length. Full stop. That’s all we need to say on the matter.
Soft Curved Bob
We’re taking things back to the Old Hollywood bobs of yesteryear—which means soft ends, flattering curves, and a deep side part.
Mia Wallace Bob
This Pulp Fiction cut is iconic in its own right. Now it’s your turn to make a statement.
