 HAIRCUT TRENDS 

THE MULLET

It can be the most retro haircut that looks like it pops out of a ’70s disco party. The mullet is so versatile that it can be chopped edgier or smoother according to your style. To have a modern mullet, you should go with subtle face-framing layers and textured bangs. But, if you want to catch a real retro vibe, the ’70s edgier shag which is shorter in the front part gives you stronger look.

CURTAIN BANGS

Every woman has a bangs haircut moment once a year and if this is that time for you, I can say just go for it! Cuz’ curtain bangs will be everywhere from now on. It’s not like the traditional bangs cut, curtain bangs are softer and low-maintenance when compares to the other bang haircuts. Moreover, you don’t have to wait forever to get longer your bangs, if you get bored.

TEXTURED LAYERS

2021 is all about textures whether it’s short and long or curly and straight hair. Textured layers can be tried in every haircut not only shag or mullet. It looks like face-framing layers in front but the back of the hair has lots of layers too. You can’t ignore the textured layers and you’ll find yourself saying “let’s give a chance to textures!”.

ROUGE RED

If you want to make a statement, this smooth and sophisticated color will do it successfully. Rouge red is a true red that it’s richer than copper and brighter than auburn. Try more strawberry tones to decrease the intensity of the red. Either way, you need to keep up the maintenance to protect brilliance and color.
