Let’s be honest. 2020 wasn’t the greatest year for hair. We had lockdowns. Salons were closed for long periods of time. Many people lost jobs and couldn’t afford to splurge on a good cut when they were open. And let’s not forget all the disastrous home haircuts. Wow.
So it’s no wonder that in 2021, people are ready for a change. This season’s hairstyles are bold, fun, and daring. Whether you want to embrace the messy lockdown look with a modern shag, go retro with 60s curtain bangs, or turn up the heat with fiery copper locks, we’ve got you covered. Here are the hottest summer 2021 hairstyle trends.
Yes, the mullet is still in. With celebs like Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato rocking the mullet, this style is here to stay for the summer. The modern mullet is a little edgier than it was in the 80s, so if you want to try a little business in the front, party in the back, go for it!
Shags, Shags, and More Shags!
Shag cuts are everywhere, and the great news is you can wear them in any length you like. We’re seeing shaggy bobs, mid-length curly shags, and long, layered shags. With so much variety, you’re sure to find a shag style that flatters your face. So why not channel your inner Taylor Swift and try out a shag style this summer?
Curtain bangs are flattering, easy to maintain, and easy to grow out, so it’s no wonder we love them. And this summer, curtain bangs with a retro feel are all the rage. Celebrities like Lizzo have been paying serious homage to Farrah Fawcett with their retro curtain bangs. Maybe you should, too.
60s Mod Bangs
Prefer the 60s? No problem! Heavy, thick bangs that end right above your eyes will have you looking as sultry as the summer heat.
Shorter, blunt bangs are in style this summer, too. And so are barely-there, light, wispy bangs that blend in with your style. This summer, it’s a choose-your-own-bangs adventure, so pick a style that works for you and rock it!
Have you been wanting to try a big chop for a while? Well, what are you waiting for? Leave 2020 behind, along with all the hair that’s been weighing you down. Summer is a great time for a big chop. It’s cool, super cute, and also gives you a fresh start if you have damage from less-than-stellar hair care during quarantine. How cute does Sanaa Lathan look after doing the big chop?!
After a year of often-boring hair, is it any wonder experimenting with bold colors is on-trend right now? We’re seeing sunshine blond, pink, blue, and particularly copper this summer. Have you seen Sarah Hyland?! Goals.
Bobs, Pixies, and Layers
So admittedly, this summer’s styles are a bit rebellious after a year of COVID restrictions, but what if you aren’t really feeling that rebellious? Relax, there are plenty of timeless classics that are still in style. Bobs, pixies, and layers are all fantastic choices this summer.
So which style are you going to choose? We’d love to see your new look. Upload a photo along with a review of your favorite Viori product.
