“Change!” – is the best slogan of 2021. We are all tired of 2020: we want to forget it like a bad dream and start from scratch. Not only our hearts and eyes are demanding change, but also our strands: the gaps between visits to the salon have increased for objective reasons, and the hair is not good for us. The hair trend in 2021 is sure to be different, if only because stylists and trend forecasters have prepared for us a lot of fresh ideas for haircuts in 2021. Some of them you have already seen, and some of them will surprise you. What fashionable haircuts for women in 2021 will appeal to your taste? We’ll tell you all of them!
Trends in women’s haircuts – 2021
The year 2020 was very disturbing and at the same time relaxed: many people were forced to grow their hair, learn how to draw arrows and fall in love with sportswear at home. No one wants to sit at home anymore, but no one is going to give up comfort either.
Both fashion designers and hair stylists have to put up with this. The fashionable haircuts of 2021 – both female and, by the way, male – are as natural as possible, a little sloppy, and extremely comfortable.
Here are the main details and features of trendy hairstyles for 2021
Whether it’s a radical look or evenly long strands, layers are now important in any haircut. All the hair is the same length and the ends are cut as if it were a ruler – definitely last year. Or even the year before that. The exception works only for girls with thin hair, for them an even cut is always desirable.
If you don’t want to do it, you don’t have to, but if you do, it’s the right time to do it: bangs are in fashion, as well as short “children’s” variants, and oblique bangs in the style of early noughties. Even women with curly hair are strongly advised to cut bangs at least, and only a couple of years ago they were categorically dissuaded.
Back to the Past.
Sometimes it seems that the technological future is unclear and many people are worried, but in the past, everything was so good, especially in the carefree 1970s and in such a recent 1990s when most of the trend-setting stylists were even children. Trendsetters are nostalgic for these two decades, from where the new hairstyles of 2021 are the combination of long, untouched hair (a sort of new hippie-chic) and a neat, retro-inspired haircut in the vein of Trinity from The Matrix and Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction.
Hair is the best basis for changes in appearance, which, as we know, always adds new colors to life. And they are very necessary! Therefore, in 2021 the stylists advise to cut hair more courageously and shorter: if not pixie, then at least a square up to the chin (however, if this year you finally managed to grow a plait to the waist, take care – long hair is always in fashion, but maybe you should try at least bangs?)
Girls now have more masculine haircuts. The trend, of course, is not observed in all girls, but it is also a trend. There are a lot of short haircuts – Garson, beanie, even undercut girls now do, the basis of this trend was laid by street fashion. It looks very cool.
The main fashionable haircut of 2021: shaggy
It can be said that shaggy is the basis of all fashionable haircuts for women in 2021. Maximum naturalness, torn ends, distinctly visible layers, bangs, and versatility – all trends are in place. Shaggy is suitable for both curly and straight hair and can look quite radical and chaotic as well as calm, elegant. Another plus of this hairstyle is that it also looks great without styling.
Trendy haircut – 2021 for the very busy: Bob cut
The bob haircut is a classic mid-length haircut that is so versatile that it suits almost everyone and never goes out of style. The fashionable haircut of 2021 is characterized by graduation and natural texture – strict graphicality is highly undesirable.
But the main difference of this year’s carriage is the bangs. It is an optional, but a very welcome element. Choose straight and not too thick bangs – in the best traditions of the 1990s.
A natural, carefree bob on fine hair can be styled with a mousse on a brushing brush. If your hair is normal, create relaxed looks with a texturizing oil spray: it makes it easy to form soft beach waves when applied to wet strands and great texture when applied to dry hair.
Fashionable haircut – 2021 for the brave: pixie
The classic pixie has a raised nape and elongated bangs, which are extremely stylish but not the most natural shape. Therefore in 2021 it is slightly “calmed down”: bangs are made as short as possible, and the nape – “raised” to a minimum. It is also possible to play around: shave temples or the back of the head, while leaving the bangs long and styling them away from the face.
We advise you to style pixies using a multi-material 3 in 1 Overachiever, Matrix: it is a cream, paste, and wax. It does not stick the hair and allows you to do with them literally anything (some fans of the product even call it a 3d-pen).
Fashionable haircut – 2021 for the very, very brave: the mullet
The 30-year-old mullet hairstyle made a resounding comeback in 2020, and in 2021 it’s only gaining momentum. The mullet haircut is back on trend within both men’s and women’s styles. The modern interpretation is different from the classic mallet: now more ripped, harmonious-looking textures.
The origin of the mallet is not entirely clear. Enthusiasts claim that mallet-type hairstyles were worn by ancient Egyptians, as well as by Gauls and Scandinavians. According to American legends, fishermen in the 19th century wore their hair long at the back to avoid catching a cold on the neck, and this gave rise to the nickname mullet, which means “mullet” in English. The term is also mentioned in the 1967 film starring Paul Newman and George Kennedy, Cool Hand Luke, in which Kennedy’s character calls men with long hair “Mulletheads.” In the United States, the mullet hairstyle was associated with the “white trash” – the declassified white population who were employed on an equal footing with African-Americans. Later, the fashion for the mullet penetrated into the environment of rock musicians.
The fashionable haircut of 2021, which used to be blatantly ironic, is now at the top of the requests in the salons. Especially among those who are under 20: after all, Billy Ish and Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, and even Irina Shayk wear the mullet. It’s a trendy and even daring shape – when choosing this option, be prepared to be in the center of attention.
Texture, discipline, and volume, and can replace several products at once with Tecni. Art Transformer, a super versatile paste from L’Oréal Professionnel. Just apply it before styling with a styler and then let your fantasy take flight: curl large curls, smooth down to a mirror-like sheen, or make a sharp graphic twist. A slightly sloppy, airy mullet can be achieved with a duo of Tecni. Art Pli Spray (which makes the strands more textured) and Beach Waves Salt Spray.
Almost a mallet, but bulkier: the Gavroche
This is a more distinctly retro look that will appeal not so much to fans of Hugo or late ’80s Russian rock, but to mature Tokio Hotel fans. At the nape of the neck in the fashionable haircut of 2021 hair remains long, but in the parietal zone and on the crown are cut texturally – so that if you want it is easy to create volume.
Blow-dry short hair and fix the strands in a creative mess with any texturizing “puller.” Stylize longer hair in the nape of the neck with a small amount of L’Oréal Pro-Fix Polish Gel Wax. This styling maintains the effect of flowing strands, which is what Havrosh-2021 requires. In 2021, stylists are promising the rise in popularity of this hairstyle. Thanks to some of its features, it suits absolutely everyone. Although this haircut can also be worn by older women, Gavroche is still a youth trend.
Since the haircut itself is unusual, it looks amazing on short hair. Long temples, oblique or short bangs, and irregularly cut strands at the back of the head. The area above the ears can be as short as possible.
About fashionable women’s haircut – 2021 for fans of minimalism: cap
A short (usually above the ears) puffy haircut with strands of equal length looks perfect on thick hair, both straight and curly. The novelty in women’s haircuts 2021 – sloppiness, so look for a master with straight hands: properly trimmed cap looks good and without styling (though, to visit the stylist will have to often).
Women’s haircut – 2021 for mobile: Pageant
This hairstyle is similar to the previous one, only here the hair becomes evenly longer at the back. It’s not the most current version (it’s not in the international top of the most fashionable haircuts for women in 2021), but it can be made more fashionable: a little more filleting and tearing ends, and you get a very fresh interpretation of the haircut originated already in the Middle Ages.
By the way, the best with this hairstyle looks natural hair color or uniform monochrome coloring of different colors.
About the trendy haircut – 2021 for businesswomen and not only: bob-cut
The bob-cut, a mix of two versatile haircuts, is not losing its popularity this year. The rules are the same: filleting, visible layers, and natural styling. These three ingredients will yield the most relevant results.
Since we’re dealing with layers, it doesn’t hurt to do some textural styling.
Cascade: back among the trendy haircuts in 2021
The multilevel haircut with clearly distinguished layers (the difference between them can reach 10 or more centimeters) is a hit and debut of the 1990s and a big trend among the fashionable hairstyles of 2021. In fact, it is as calm as possible shaggy or even mullet without the radical component – depends on the chosen length.
Overall, a cascade can look super elegant, especially if you don’t mess with styling, at least with a classic brushing with a volumizing spray, such as Guts 10, Redken. It’s got a wow factor volume at the roots and along with the hair, even after wearing a hat, which is a must-have for winter beauty (don’t get too cold!). It also smells nice and is very economical.
Trendy hairstyle – 2021 for stylish things
It’s definitely a 1960s haircut, but not mothballs: the shape itself is very current in 2021, but the deliberate straightening with rounded ends is not. If you adore this cut, consider sloppy curls or at least a bit of “just woke up” chaos.
Apply Spiral Queen Mousse to slightly damp hair, then blow-dry with a diffuser. The curls will be well defined and smooth, just like after salon styling.
About the women’s hairstyle of the year 2021 for thick hair: layers
The hair that made Jennifer Aniston famous was the hair that framed her face as if in steps. The actress no longer wears it, and for good reason: the staircase perfectly fits into the fashion trends of women’s haircuts in 2021. It has always been loved for its ability to correct (read “skinny”) the face and neat look. And also with a staircase look very good gradient colors.
The most important thing in a haircut with a mobile texture (and a staircase is just one of them) is mobility. So let’s forget about nail polishes and arm ourselves with a little fixing primer. It doesn’t weigh you down, seals the length, protects you while styling with a hairdryer in hot mode.
Rejuvenating and fashionable in 2021
The most fashionable haircut-2021 for long hair: Rhapsody
His hairstyle combines a cascading top and a staggered bottom, giving volume to even the longest and thickest hair, which makes rhapsody the best haircut for those who, after the long 2020s, discovered many similarities to Rapunzel.
Top Trendy Hairstyles – 2021 completes … the aurora
The Aurora is a lightweight mullet: a cap of hair on a stem of profiled strands. A bang is a must, as is a movable style with light curls (however, such a style – or even no styling, if you are lucky with your hair structure – is good for any haircut in 2021).
Wow, 2021 promises to be a beautiful year! Which haircut will be your calling card?
