6 of the biggest hairstyle trends for summer 2021

If you are looking for hair inspiration, you have come to the right place.

It’s been a funny year for our hair, hasn’t it?

Containment saw us abandon our hair straighteners, curlers and regular washing schedules. We even played hairstylists at home, and the results were mixed to say the least.

Pandemic hair is hopefully a thing of the past. With lounges open for business – and restrictions gradually easing – now is a great time to think about your next cut for the months to come.

1. Blunt ends

After a year of growing our hair out, it makes sense that blunt ends are popular. This look sees your hair cut sharply, and at one length for a super crisp look.

2. French sweep

If you have often heard these two words together over the past few weeks, then you are not alone. Designed to be the color trend of the season, French Balayage involves the stylist hand painting your hair color with brush strokes, which leads to a relaxed Parisian look.

3. The modern Rachel

Yes, that’s right, the Rachel is back! This layered hairstyle was hugely popular throughout the ’90s, but it’s experiencing a resurgence – maybe due to meeting friends – and we’re not complaining.

4. The wolf cup

This look is extremely popular right now, and we can see why. The Wolf fit features shorter mullet-style layers in the front and thicker sides that taper off. Absolutely stunning.

5. Fringe curtain

The Rachel isn’t the only hairstyle on this list dripping with nostalgia – curtain bangs are back too! Once the go-to look for ’90s boy bands, a number of celebrities from Georgia May Jagger to Jennifer Lopez have been pictured rocking these bangs.

6. Visible roots

What started as a natural side effect of salon shutdown has grown into a foreclosure trend, and it’s not going away anytime soon. Conveniently, the visible roots are always right in the trend.
