Oftentimes, many of us use a new hairstyle as a little pick-me-up, to celebrate in a new season, or just because we want to update our look with a trending new style. Whatever your reason, William Robert is looking at the latest hairstyle trends of 2021 to perhaps give you a little inspiration for your next appointment. Your hairstylist can help you find a new look that fulfills your needs, meets your lifestyle, and brings out your personality.
Love Those Bangs
Trending for 2021 is bangs. Curtain bangs, layered bangs, side-swept bangs – there’s an endless variety to choose from. Whether you want a throwback to the 60s with a straight-across look, face-framing bangs, or intense curtain bangs, your William Robert stylist will help you determine the best bangs for your face shape and hair texture.
Short hair is going to be big in 2021 and the pixie is one of those trending styles! An above-the-ear cut, the pixie has a lot of layers to give your hair depth and dimension. There are many ways to make your pixie cut individualized just for you and as a low-maintenance style, it’s the perfect chic look for the new year.
Bob Styles to Highlight the Season
The bob cut never goes out of style and this year is no exception. If you’ve been wanting to go shorter, but not to pixie length, the bob is a great option. Shorter styles are lightweight and easy to style. The bob offers a lot of versatility to go from fun and flirty, to soft and romantic, to sleek and professional.
There are a few bob cuts are seeing gaining momentum for 2021:
Blunt: For smooth, straight hair, this cut will give you a sleek, streamlined look. It’s a cut that sits straight across at chin length. The cut itself may seem simple but the finished look is anything but ordinary. You have the versatility to make it sassy and carefree looking with just the addition of a little styling product. Or add some serum for a smooth, glossy look.
Asymmetrical: This is a unique variation of the traditional bob haircut with different lengths on each side of your face. You can go from chin length on one side, the shoulder-length on the other – the choice is yours. Make this look even more dramatic with a deep part on the side.
Textured: You don’t only have to have straight hair for a bob cut. If you have wavy or curly hair, this is a great hairstyle to embrace those curls. Your curls will look natural and great with minimal styling and a bit of styling product.
Go Longer with the Lob
If you love the look of the bob but wish it was a bit longer, that’s the lob! A lob, or long bob, is a shoulder-length cut that’s a straight cut. It looks wonderful with either straight or curly hair and gives you the flexibility to put it up, style in a half-do, or leave it down; allowing you to go from business chic to fun and flirty by throwing it up in a sleek pony or a messy bun.
We saw the shag gain popularity in 2020 and it’s still getting traction. We are seeing this look with even more layers and a more distinct “mullet” shaped cut. With the multitude of layers, your hair will have a ton of dimension and volume. Look for many personalized versions of this layered shag in 2021.
Long, Invisible Layers
If mid- to long-length is for you, add movement and dimension by having your William Robert stylist enhance your cut by inserting invisible layers. There are cleverly placed layers to lighten the weight of your hair while helping your hair naturally flow and have better movement.
