Never again will we underestimate the importance of a hairdresser. When the salons close or you need to quarantine for a period, getting out for a haircut just isn’t possible. Fortunately, 2021 has brought with it new freedom for our hair.
However, if you’ve been one of the people that couldn’t wait and decided to do a DIY job at home, you may need a correction haircut. That could mean going a lot shorter than you’re used to or trying something different. Take a look at some of the most flattering haircuts for women this year.
1. High Pixie
Pixie cuts never really go out of style. These popular haircuts are an ideal way to show off your true beauty because they have an impeccable way of making sure your facial features don’t go unnoticed. They’re also low maintenance, so if you’re a busy person, a pixie is a perfect choice.
You can also wear pixies straight or curly, depending on your preference. It’s a great choice if you’re looking to do something a bit daring but it’s also a brilliant way to get some strength back into your hair. If your hair has been through the rounds, giving it a good chop will allow it time to repair itself.
2. Natural and Heavy Perimeters
Many people prefer to look as natural as possible right now. There is a big focus on healthy hair above anything else. When your hair is healthy it will grow well, shine well, and feel great.
Natural longer hair often comes with heavy perimeters that look fantastic with feathering or waves. It also means you don’t have to make drastic changes to your hair for it to feel great.
3. Natural Bangs
Curly bangs are in for 2021 and they could be here to stay. Many women are now embracing curly bangs so they can embrace their natural hair. Gone are the days where you’d need to straighten your hair to rock some bangs.
Women with tight curls are leading the way this year and hair freedom has never felt better. It’s not entirely low maintenance; bangs are bangs, after all. However, it is far easier to jump out of the shower and let natural curls be curls.
4. One Length Long Hair
Many women are used to asking for layers or feathering, along with full bangs or sweeping bangs. Since the pandemic hit, things have been shaken up. When you’ve got layers and you can’t get to a salon, your hairstyle changes completely within a few weeks.
If you’ve got long hair, consider going one length or doing some light layering. It’s a style that can’t grow out in a rush. The problem with this is most hairstylists are used to layering hair, so you’ll need to find a top-notch hair stylist to get this hairstyle done properly.
5. Blunt Cuts
There’s still something futuristic and impeccably stylish about blunt cuts. They’re sharp, clean but can be instantly jazzed up with a curl or two. They’re quick and easy for your stylist and low maintenance for you- especially if you go for a chin sweep.
If you want to keep it a bit more natural-looking, forget the straighteners. If the cut is done well enough, it will look just as straight after a quick blowdry. If you’re looking for a haircut for face shape, this is it.
6. Grown Side Bangs
When you think about bangs, you probably think about your hairstylist cutting them in. However, you might want to try growing them out this year. Your hair will often have a natural shape to it and it will grow in certain patterns, whether you want it to or not.
Think about letting your bangs grow down the side of your face, almost until they become a layer framing your face. Not only does it give your hair more volume but it also allows you to experiment with color options too.
Over the past eighteen months, we’ve all learned to be a little more accepting of ourselves. Natural has never been more beautiful and the afro is no exception. Wearing an afro in all its glory is a truly beautiful sight.
For women with natural afro’s, it also means not having to go through all the trouble of finding an alternative hairstyle. If you do decide to rock your afro, you can keep it in good condition by hydrating it with a conditioning hair mask.
8. Summer Braids
Braids always look beautiful but there’s something about wearing a braid in the summer that makes you feel confident. It’s also a great way to hide a multitude of sins. If your hair is looking damaged, greasy, or dry, a braid is a way forward.
You can even wear a braided up-do if you’re going out for the night or to an event, like a wedding. You’ll also be left with luscious curly locks when you unravel your braid- perfect for the beach.
Flattering Haircuts in 2021
Flattering haircuts in 2021 are all about being true to yourself and embracing your natural beauty. Women have never been as beautiful or as relaxed in their own skin. When it comes to choosing the right hairstyle for you, think about your lifestyle and what will make your hair look the healthiest.
