3. Side-swept bangs

If you’re a bang hairstyle type of gal, you’ll be happy to know that side-swept bangs are seriously fashionable for 2021. Not only is it iconic, but this style is perfect to highlight your features; particularly, those of you with wider foreheads as it brings attention to your eyes.

4. Shag haircuts

Yes, they’re back and trendier than ever. Shag haircuts are a fabulous way to pay tribute to the rock and rollers of the 70s era. With its multiple layers and bangs, it fits in perfectly with that cool-girl, edgy look.

5. Blunt bob

Lockdown has made short hair a vibe for 2021 (not that we’re complaining). If you want that sleek and sharp look, you’ll have to put in some effort as the blunt bob requires a lot of maintenance. 

6. Two-tone hair

Why decide on one haircut when you can go for two? Two-tone hair is all about customising your hair needs. There is nothing to stop you from fulfilling your multi-coloured fantasies with this look. Whether you want coloured ends or rock-coloured roots, you’re free to do so.

Back at you with another short hair trend. With a pixie hairstyle, you can choose just one-length or get it cut shorter on the back or sides and leave it longer on the top.

8. Lob with choppy layers

If you want to have a go at playing with length without the commitment of a bob, a lob with choppy layers is the perfect answer – especially for those of you with thin or fine hair.
