Hot Summer 2021 Haircuts

Temperatures have slowly increased since their salon doors were reopened following their one-year hibernation, prompting stylists to open them again. And with new season hair trends such as Kaia Gerber’s pink ombre emerging, we asked some of the industry’s leading stylists for their predictions for summer 2021 haircuts.

Classic Lob

Chic and effortless, the classic lob is flattering for all face shapes. Style it wavy or sleek; even add volume at its roots by styling it with a deep side part.

Asymmetric Bob

This asymmetric bob is longer in the back than the front, making it perfect for women with naturally curly locks who wish to forgo straight styles. Additionally, big side bangs help frame your face and draw focus to your stunning eyes! A blunt asymmetric bob style looks adorable when dyed in bold, like turquoise. It’s the perfect way to highlight your eyes while adding some edge and character to your style. For dark-haired brunettes, a deep side part and asymmetrical bob can show off your complexion. A hand-painted caramel shade is also beautiful on brunettes. An asymmetrical bob is easy to wear as an everyday or formal style and features choppy textures that can easily be messed up for a beachy vibe. Plus, it can take years off of your appearance by lifting features of your face! It can even take years off of older women by refreshing their appearances!

Chin-Swept Bob

The chin-swept bob isn’t just limited to winter months; it also makes an eye-catching statement in summer. This classic cut features long disconnected face-framing strands for an effortless yet chic summer style that works. Master stylist Sergio Pattirane suggests adding subtle face-framing hues like Bella Hadid’s blonde locks or fantasy colors for extra flair! Regarding chin-length layered bob haircuts, stylists have many ways of personalizing this style for each client. Consider side-swept versions highlighting cheekbones or blunt cuts with choppy layers for a modern, blocky aesthetic that says: “Take me seriously.”

Grown-Out Pixie Cut

Look no further than the Grown-Out Pixie Cut for an easy yet stylish summer hairstyle. This short haircut features longer face-framing pieces, easily styled behind the ears or slicked back for maximum cooling effects. Additionally, this style can easily accommodate various styling techniques and looks great regardless of their application. Make an impactful statement this summer with a chin-length, choppy pixie cut styled with a messy side sweep, and elevate your ponytail by styling it like this. This hairstyle lets you show off your color and texture, mainly if your locks are coily or kinky.


Marjan predicts the mullet will return as an elegant face-framing style to keep clients’ hair off their faces and maintain an edge, and may become popular again in summer 2021. It provides clients an ideal way to keep their locks out of their way while creating an irresistibly chic aesthetic. When selecting a mullet cut with high, mid, or bald fades, your barber can create the perfect taper, burst, or skin finish to complement your style. A layered mullet may also be styled with a mohawk, faux hawk, or slick back for a contemporary take on this timeless classic. Ask your stylist for a lived-in ponytail in any height you like – low or tall – then add texture spray for an extra smooth and voluminous finish. This style works exceptionally well on clients with thick or curly locks,, enhancing their natural curl patterns while creating an effortless manner with low maintenance requirements.
