Interestingly, by way of contrast, a ‘planned trend’ can take up to two years to really catch on. They start in the backstreets of New York or London and are then adopted by cooler-than-cool artist-types, eventually busting out into the mainstream.
- Short, lived in and textured looks are also on-trend this year. In a departure from the straighter and more structured looks of recent seasons, current trends are leaning toward hair that appears more naturalistic, with lots of texture. It’s all about creating effortless chic!
If you’re struggling to picture it, just think of the mullet minus the longer section at the back. These are shorter cuts with a softer look, slightly more grown out than some of the other cropped styles you’ll see in 2021 (with a bit more movement.
- The pixie crop is probably the most super short on-trend style for consideration this year. Ask your stylist about it. While almost shaved, the pixie cut still leaves enough hair left to play with and style (depending on your clothing, accessories and mood.)
- The final short style we’ve noticed falling into favour is the sharp, strong and structured look featuring hard edges and clean lines. These styles can take a variety of forms and usually live or die on the technical elements of the cut itself. They’re perfect for creating that edgy, ultra-modern finish that makes a bold statement.
