Summer Hair Trends 2021

With summer here, it’s time to bring out the flip-flops, sundresses, bathing suits, and the ultimate accessory: a fabulous summer hairstyle. If you’re looking for a hot new hairstyle here are some of the latest trends making waves this summer.

Mullet mania

If you thought this iconic 80s’ cut was so yesterday, think again. The all business in the front, party in the back style is back and bolder than ever!

Shag cut

There seems to be no decade left behind this summer as the 70s’ inspired, face-framing shag cut is seeing a resurgence. This super-layered, choppy style is feminine, fabulous, and pretty low maintenance.

Curtain bangs

Gloriously elongated bangs that frame your face and can be pulled back or left to flow free! Yes, please!

Curls and more

Full-on summer waves and curls are a hit this season. The fuller, the better with both curly layers and bangs bringing out your inner beach babe.

French braids

Stylish but practical in the dead heat of summer, elegant French braids are making a splash at pools and beaches everywhere.

All kinds of pixie

Pixies of all kinds are trending this summer. With or without a heavy bang, this closely cropped cut is anything you want it to be.


Not so much a trending style as a trending accessory, the scrunchie is back! Any color, any fabric, any way you want to wear it. Hair half up or all up in a top knot, this 90s’ fad is making a fantastic return this summer.

Down the middle part

The side part is out, and the center part is back! Ideal for those curtain bangs and/or shag styles, perfectly parted down the center hair is where it’s at!

No matter what hairstyle you decide to rock, have some fun with it and make this your most memorable summer ever! And if you’re all about creating hair that rocks, maybe a career in cosmetology is right for you! To learn more about cosmetology careers, check out the Hairdressing and Cosmetology Program at Continental School of Beauty.
