Lately, we have witnessed lots of women on the internet with bangs, layers, and buzz cuts. But the question is, are those the biggest haircut trends of 2021?

The reality is that whether we like or not, a new haircut is an announcement to the world that change is about to come.

The major comebacks have been the ’90s layers and curly shags. This year, we have seen an increase of women embracing their natural curls and that has led to women experimenting with different lengths and adding bangs.

The ’90s influence on beauty has led to face-framing layers. The easiest haircut to try something new and drastically. It all depends on your face and how you want it to be framed. Some love to start around the eyes and others prefer to start around the nose. Face-framing layers is a great way to add shape to all hair lengths.

Curtain bangs have been a hit this year. We have seen them on countless celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Anne Hathaway. Bangs help to accentuate your cheekbones and acts like a highlighter to your face. There is countless of lengths that you can pick for your bangs. One tip about long bangs is that you can easily pin them back or put them on the side. It’s a good one for those who love to exercise.

One length cuts have been hot this year among celebrities like Megan Thee Stallion and Addison Rae. It can also be helpful for those with Afro-textured hair. If you re more on the natural side, this one can be your go-to. It requires less heat and less styling.

Lastly, buzz cuts the cool-looking haircuts as seen on Tiffany Haddish and Ruby Rose. This one requires no styling and no color.  Is the biggest of big chops.  

To answer your question: bangs, layers, and buzz cuts are the “it cuts” of the moment.
