Believe it or not, 2021 is the year of the HAIRCUT! — COVID-19 be damned.

We have seen countless people, use salon closures as an excuse to play hairstylist, giving yourselves bangs, layers, and buzzcuts from your homes….with sometimes good and tragic results!

A new haircut becomes almost like an announcement to both yourself and the outer world that something is changing in your life. This may be as simple as having a revamp after lockdown to feel wow again. A new hairstyle can work wonders for our self-esteem!

Now that businesses are opening back up, People are sprinting right back to our beloved stylists for both touch-ups and full-blown transformations to signal this new phase of our lives as we re-enter the world and want to achieve new looks and feel fabulous again. 

Due to the standstill the world has been under for nearly a year, several haircut trends from last year poured into 2021, like mullets, shaved heads, and bobs. And now that summer is on the horizon, new haircut trends have officially emerged, such as '90s layers and curly shags. I have researched hairstyles globally to share the summer haircut trends that the fashion savvy has been requesting the most lately.
