Are you looking for inspiration? Check out the most iconic hairstyles of 2021

Whether you are looking for haircut inspiration or want to check out the most memorable hairstyles of the past year, you’ve come to the right place. As the pandemic rages on, people have become “pros” at trimming their own bangs – a skill they learned during lockouts – while also choosing to visit their barber for a much-needed cut.

We’ve compiled a list of the most iconic hairstyles of 2021, and who flaunted them. Keep reading to find out:

Fringe curtain

Perhaps the biggest hairstyle trend of 2021, curtain bangs have seen a comeback like no other. Usually favorite with mules in 80s America, curtain fringes have a unique appeal to them. They can be worn with any length of hair and look great on most face shapes. This hairstyle is endorsed by celebrities because stars Priyanka Chopra, Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello, Hillary Duff and Jennifer Lopez have already flaunted them. Such a versatile hairstyle, one wonders if this trend will continue in 2022.


Bangs were a favorite in 2021, from Bollywood celebrities such as Sameera Reddy sporting fresh cut models to women around the world opting for a new take on their usual hairstyle! Bangs are a great way to lighten hair, add volume, and bounce back to the mane. They can be styled in different ways. Side sweeps, locks of hair framing the face, super cropped and cropped bangs have all been big hits in 2021.

Blunt bob

Celebrities no longer go for super-long hairstyles, especially waist-length hair without the punch or drama. While irregular texture and sleek updos were all the rage this year, the best styles were seen on short hair. Short, blunt bobs have made a definite comeback in 2021 with stars including Millie Bobby Brown, Bella Hadid, and Charlize Theron sporting this hairstyle.

Natural curls

While the pandemic forced businesses to operate remotely across the world, hairdressers could not continue doing their jobs. As the world turned to natural hairstyles and less time to repair hair every day, natural hair textures have become all the rage. Celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Priyanka Chopra, Beyonce and Chrissy Teigen flaunted their natural hair textures in 2021, taking off their gorgeous manes at performances, dinners and awards ceremonies. The natural curls are distinguished by minimal styling products used to create a different texture, a dab of hairspray and a comb for the fingers.

Long and elegant

Whenever we think of red carpet events, we visualize sleek, shiny hair, styled to perfection; preferably paired with an equally stunning dress. Although long hair is not the general mandate from 2021, long straight hair is still very much in fashion. Bollywood celebrities such as Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, and Alia Bhatt have sported this hairstyle on several occasions. Models Gigi and Bella Hadid are fans of stylish updos, regularly flaunting them on catwalks and in normal life.
