A majority of us went at least a few months without visiting a hair salon and getting our hair cut in 2020. This time spent growing out our hair and waiting until we could revisit salons has changed what the biggest trends are for 2021. People are looking for drastic changes in their life this year, and especially with their haircut and hairstyle. We put together a list of some of the trendiest haircuts and hairstyles for 2021.


Curtain Bangs

Curtain bangs are longer bangs that frame your face. They’re typically shaggy and effortless and are a 60’s and 70’s style that’s becoming a big trend this year.

Regular, Baby, or Blunt Bangs

Regular bangs, baby bangs (shorter bangs that don’t go all the way down your forehead), and blunt bangs (sharp straight line) are all trending this year as people look for a drastic or dramatic style change.

Short Bob

A short bob is usually on the trending list each year, but we’re seeing this trend, even more, this year because it is a dramatic look. After a few extra months of growing out our hair, many people are looking to make a big cut and go with a short bob haircut.

Big Chop

Sometimes, the short bob isn’t dramatic enough or enough of a cut. That’s where the big chop comes in. The big chop just refers to chopping off most or all of your hair.

Modern Shag

The modern shag is a way to have some layers while adding movement to your haircut. There are many different varieties of a shag, but if you’re looking for a choppy look, the modern shag may be the perfect hairstyle.

Loose Waves or Heatless Textured Hairstyles

During the pandemic, people have gotten creative with heatless hairstyles and using less heat on their hair in general. Loose waves and these heatless textured hairstyles are going to stay on trend especially throughout the summer this year.

Embracing the Curls

2020 and the first quarter of 2021 have made embracing your natural hair, makeup-free face, and all-around casual style trendy. Many people in 2021 are embracing their natural hair as it comes, and embracing the curls is a big trend this year.
