With the new year, we are ready to help you decide your 2021 look. This year the trend seems to be towards longer hairstyles with a focus on fades on the sides. Tapered sides have always been a flowing trend but now it feels like fades taking slowly over.
Not to mention, the curls will always have a special niche with tapered sides and slightly longer strands making it a very neat and cool look altogether. Topping it with a beard makes it a pitch-perfect way to style in 2021.
Styling in 2021 is very diverse due to long and medium hairstyles emerging out of nowhere, especially with thicker hair texture is perfect. All of that but the classics always remain in places like various French Crops, Buzz Cuts, and Pompadours.
What style are you rocking this year?
Mohawk Brush Up with Cross Shave
New year means a new statement and this hairstyle exactly does that. The mohawk-y flavor with a brush-up tinge makes it very trendy. Not only that but the clean mid fade with the cross shave on the lineup is something we haven’t seen in a while.
Slicked Back Pompadour with Mid Fade Shave
The best part about thick hair is that you can have a short length and still looks quite girthy. But that is not it, the top is a pompadour with a slicked-back texture. The sides are mid faded with a drop shave followed by a cheeky taper fade. See that chin beard? That is the chaser in here.
Rugged Ends Dyed Side Brush
Doesn’t he look like Zayn Malik? He sure does but that is not the point, the point is, this cool side brush texture with sides being tapered slightly makes it so much cooler. Not to mention the dye work here is just extraordinary, the ends are highlighted with a beard coming to rescue for that face balance.
Younger Thin Hair Brad Pitt
Royal Pushed Back Pompadour
Drake Inspired Bigger Buzz Cut
Braided Afro Muscle Panache
Your hair grew long? Well, definitely you are not alone. The best part of that being you can braid it with such panache. I mean just look at the overall design here. The sides are tapered and braided altogether with a sharp lineup and a temple fade for a smooth beard blend.
Long Top Strands with Clean Sides
Dreadlocked Top with Faded SIdes
Best part about long hair is that it can be tweaked in a million ways and can always be trimmed but this one triumphs them all. This one takes a step further with the sides being taper faded but just the cleanliness of this bad boy is just mesmerizing.
Rock the Curls with Faded Sides
Brush Up and Beard Brush Down
Thin hair does so much justice when done right and this is the prime example of it. The top of it brushed up with no parting but a taper near the temple. The beard however adds the main flavor by balancing the face and making it look all rugged yet clean altogether.
Side Parted Long hair
Who doesn’t love long hair? Especially when it is done right so it looks long and yet not out of control at the same time. The sides here are slightly tapered which perfectly sets the tone for a new look in 2021. The mustache goes well with the look and makes the face look fuller.
Worth the High Maintenance
Nothing wrong with letting those hair grow as long as they want to grow. The best part being these are thin and slightly curled too, so when that happens, it adds extra fluff to it making it so much lively.
Mid Part with Cheeky Dye
There are no limits to what thin hair can achieve and this is another example. The top is mid parted with a thin hair texture. The best part about the whole look is the frosty dye that pops out quite well. Plus the cleaner look uplifts the whole face making it much better overall.
Tattooed Slicked Back
Thick Dreads with Highlights
Since one would end up with long hair due to staying indoors for a while, why not make the most out of it. And what is best than some cool dreadlocks? I’ll tell you what is cooler, some highlighted ends with blonde dye makes it a million times cooler. Not to mention, the beard balances the face quite well.
Bright Ginger Balance Cut
Symmetrical Side Brushed Long Hair
Even long hair needs time to time brushing up. This one is so well kept that it is quite symmetrical. Not only that but the sheer side brush of it makes it so much fun. Moreover, the beard balances the lower part of the face with a similar volume. All in all, this one feels quite rugged!
Dense Top with Short Curls
Thick curls always do the magic but short and dense curls have their own charm. This one is so well kept especially since the use of cream makes the curls even bouncier. The undercut comes in handy and the sides are classic taper faded with a neat beard blend. Beard however holds the lower floor quite well.
Wavy Short Hair with Winged Shave
We all longed for some short hair mastery done and here it is in its glory. The top is almost a buzz cut with the equal volume all around the head. The sides however hint a slight drop fade with a cheeky beard blend that comes to the rescue. The winged shave brings out the trendier side of things.
Slicked Back Dreads
This is a variety of haircuts all pooled together for the maximum style quotient. The top, although has thinner hair strands, is quite a jewel of a dreadlock which is also slicked back. The sides are taper faded with mid drop fade that supports the whole minimal look while bringing attention to the dreads.
Brushed Up Pompadour
The best part about rocking thin hair is that if done right, it can look pitch-perfect. Not only that but the brushed up pompadour on the top looks so fuller and richer. It definitely needs maintenance but it is totally worth it. The sides are tapered and blended into the beard to balance the face.
Frizzy Long Hair
Got frizzy long hair? We got you fam. This one is so subtle yet filled with different styles to make it look like this. The top is slightly side brushed while the sides are kept longer to keep the volume equal. The short curls are popping sometimes for that chill look with that mustache that makes everything quite retro.
Pocky Short French Crop
“Density” is what comes to my mind while looking at this hairstyle. The thick beard is surely pulling the attention but the french crop on top is no less of a masterpiece. The sides are very neatly faded with a cheeky blend into the beard. That being said, the top is slightly frizzy yet has a short length.
Silky Smooth Side Sweep
The return of the classic clean-cut, introducing a neat side sweep with a subtle side part. The undercut here makes way for the taper fade to follow along with a very cleaner undertone. This look goes well on formal occasions, especially the fluff makes it more lively.
Asian Mid Part with Sharky Temple
No wonder mid parts are fancy but this is one step ahead, that temple just made it fancier. The top is thin-haired while it is kept decently long with a small fluff on the part. The temple here is the show stealer with sharky shape and longer neckline hairline hair makes it poppy.
Thick Elephant Trunk with Beard
Thick Side Parted with Taper
Buzz Cut with Buzz Beard
There is so much similarity between this and military haircuts, especially the top is slightly longer than a buzz cut. The sides are however quite short with that extremely high fade with a cheeky beard blend at the temple. That brings beard in the game with quite a dense texture.
Thin Neck Length Hair
This is a classic example of how ear tucked hair can be maintained. The sides are slightly trimmed with the top being the longest as usual. The mid-part texture on the top is slightly side brushed as well to tuck it at the back. A well-maintained beard goes very well with this.
Masked Braids with Fade
Masks first but then you see the braids look immensely cool. Not only they are very sharp but the sheer symmetry makes it eye candy. The sharp mid part which also happens to be a hard part is so much fun of a hairstyle. The undercut side part on both sides makes this a very clean and almost perfect hairstyle.
Sharky Side Part
Would you just look at the side part? Just the style in itself is so charming, it is a simple side part with side sweep but the sharky side part adds a fringe tinge to it. Not only that but the thin hard part is a subtle part making it cleaner plus the fade on the side gives a clean outlook overall.
Blonde Hat Dye with Fade
The top is quite simple but is not simple at the same time. The blonde flat dye makes it a fun one, whilst everything is not dyed. The High fade is darkened and the goes all cleaner as we go down. That being said the clean shave perfectly compliments the look here.
Icy Cold French Crop
What is better than a cheeky french crop with some nice dye, and to top it off with some clean fade on the sides is just a work of art. The key is to keep the volume on top while descending on the sides for a cleaner look. The chin strap beard keeps the look whole and adds that twin color flare to the face.
Shiny Gold Curls
Layers, Highlights and Panache
How does one even come across such creative styles? I mean literally, the layers are very obvious but the longer strands are well under control without being frizzy. The best part being the thin yet dense texture and the highlights certainly make the fun ten times more.
Brush Up and Frizz it
This is what symmetry does to you if pulled off right, especially the weight here is equally distributed with the top being brushed up pompadour and yes low dropped fade which bring beard into the game and that is chin focused so that pulls down the weight too.
Mo-Hawky Tossed Brush Up
Pumpkin Spiced Curls
Just have a look at the sleek wavy curl especially with that thick volume it just sits lavishly on top. That is not it, the dye is very winter seasoned as it is rusty, reddish-golden colored. The top is all pushed back and the sides are slightly trimmed to tuck behind the ear and that’s all it takes.
Drop Mid Fade with Blowback
We might have seen quite a few mid fades but this one sits right between mid fade and low fade. Not to mention, the drop texture makes it so much cleaner all the way back towards the neckline. The top is pushed back even on the sides especially that undercut makes way for the taper, all in all, a very clean look.
No One Said Not to be Hippie
Where do we start? The French crop that is massively fringed or the top that is long yet massively tossed but still regains brush up vibes? Certainly, this is a big bowl of panache especially with sides being tapered and not faded to keep that long hair strand look even!
Coned Brush Up with Undercut Beard
Thin hair does wonder if done right and this is a prime example of what drying hair after washing it can do. Styling becomes much more easier and natural, here the brush up looks bouncier while the back is all laid down. The sides are tapered for an even look while the beard has an undercut of its own.
Some Retro Suave, Why Not
Curved James Bond Pompadour
How can we miss the classic suave retro pompadour which is very close to what James Bond rocked back in the day? The top is combed pompadour with sides combed to push back. All of that and no fade which shows that this is the classic style and no tinge of hippie undertone.
Slicked Back Top with Chin Strapped
Top Dyed Sharky Brush Up
Fluffy Slicked Back
You see a dime of hair wax or pomade does such a wonderful job in holding that fluff strong and in place. This is not just another slicked back, it is slightly pushed back with some pompadour vibes to it. The sides are taper faded with that chin focused beard, so cool!
Why Not a Top Knot
The key here is to play with length and hair texture. Strands being longer than usual makes it easy to pull off a top knot with that small knot up there. If you look closely the sides are very clean taper faded with a temple fade. That continues all the way down to a chin dense beard.
Pocky Fringe with Hard Part
Blue tinge is always quite trendy for dyeing but this blue is poppy and very fresh. Plus the pocky fringe on top makes it very modern and hipsterish. The side has an offset hard part which can be a subtle side part, just a little lower than usual, but again who is to say it is not a style statement?
Rusty French Crop
Playing with volume is always fun and this quite a twister, the top is front heavy with less density towards the back. The sides are classic high faded for maximum attention to the top and also to bring out the tattoos. The top being rusty red dyed is another attention grabber, cannot go wrong with this.
