New beginning, freedom, countless possibilities: all of this is in the air right now. After long weeks full of uncertainty, we are now happy to greet the sun, enjoy cocktails on restaurant terraces, and carefully make holiday plans. What better way to underline this optimistic mood than a visual change - for example, the hair with a new haircut? We asked hairdresser Hamid Farahani which hairstyle trend will be important in summer 2021 and for which hair the hairstyles are particularly suitable.
Straight, sideways, or short: the pony was omnipresent on the runways of the summer shows. However, we were able to spot one version particularly often: the curtain bangs. This hairstyle trend was also noticed by our expert Hamid Farahani: “This trend can be traced back to the comeback of the 1960s. Brigitte Bardot is, of course, the style model here, "says the hairdresser. As the name suggests, the hairstyle trend is reminiscent of a curtain, as the hair is styled from the center to the left and right while extending out to the sides." That puts the eye and cheek area in focus. This trend is suitable for almost every hair type - it can only be a bit difficult with very curly hair, "says the professional. In order for the look to look natural and casual in summer 2021, the bangs are allowed to look a bit outgrown, so ideal for everyone who doesn't want to go to re-cutting all the time.
2021 is the year of short hair. “But the trend is moving away from the buzz cut - towards the pixie cut, because hardly any other haircut is so versatile. Depending on the styling, the pixie can always look different: from sporty to elegant ", the expert knows and reveals a styling trick for the hairstyle trend in summer 2021:" Wax makes this hairstyle collapse quickly. Better: use a salt spray before blow-drying and matt styling creams or dry shampoo after blow-drying. This gives the look more structure, grip, and volume - while the hair stays nice and loose. ”Farahani also has another tip for choosing the right hair color:“ The shorter the hair, the more uniform the color should be.”
Short outer hair, frayed tips, many layers in different lengths, and above all texture: the shag is back as a hairstyle trend! “While it used to be worn shoulder-length and with long bangs, it is no longer cut quite as stepped. There are also more variants, for example with a bob or without bangs, "explains the professional and continues:" That also means: Everyone can wear it, as it can be adapted to almost all different face shapes and hair structures. "Fine hair in particular benefits from this cut, as it creates more volume and flatters the face at the same time. Tip: If you want to rock a curly shag in summer 2021, you can use a diffuser attachment to blow dry your hair.
