Your Ultimate Summer 2021 Hair Trends Guide

While last year may have been a slow year for hair, this year promises more color, more edge, and a lot of experimentation.

Change of season feels like a great excuse to do something new and different to your look. While you’re swapping out your wardrobe for something more weather-appropriate, bring some freshness to your hair.

While trends come and go, it’s always important to take your hair and scalp, which more and more people are focusing on in their haircare regimens. With that, here are some hairstyles we expect to see a whole lot more of in the summer:


The buzz is always a good idea when temperatures rise. It’s relatively easy to maintain and the perfect hairstyle for when you want to hit the refresh.

Experimenting With Color

Spring is colorful, and the hair will be too. Experimenting with color is another big trend, especially light, bold colors and pastels.


Bobs have been in for some time, and they just keep growing in popularity and in the various ways we’re seeing them get styled.

Side Paths

Sure we’ve heard the word that side paths are out but Julia Garner’s short and curly ‘do says otherwise and is the perfect summer go-to look.


Who would have thought the mullet would make a return quite like this, yet here we are. Expect to see a lot more shaggy mullets this year.


2020 saw bangs coming in big. Many people were feeling experimental, bored, and seeking change and tried a DIY cut during the quarantine.

Curly Bangs

Bangs are great, and if you’ve got curly hair, lucky for you, you might be able to get away with the look without actually cutting your hair.

High Ponytail

Take some inspiration from Ariana Grande’s long-time go-to hairdo. Put your up in a high ponytail and let it cascade down.

Face Framing Layers

In addition to the face-framing bangs, adding the layers for the extra emphasis on the face is another big move for the summer.


Gorgeous, glamourous tumbling waves for the summer get two glowing thumbs up. Opt for the middle or side part with this look.
