Trendy Hair Looks to Try In Your 20s

Have fun with bold and daring new hairstyles in your 20s.

The 20s are a time of emotional upheaval. From first jobs to boyfriends (and girlfriends), to bills and small apartments, and to figuring out what to do with your so-called life, it’s no wonder that this age is considered to be so tumultuous. However, despite all of the life-changing craziness, it’s also the perfect time for new looks to try in your 20s where you can test out funky styles and new colors, and even go for a daring cut. From the pixie cut to the bob to the edgy side-shave look, check some of our favorite new looks to try in your 20s.

Fun New Looks to Try in Your 20s

1. Pixie Cut

Shave some time off from your morning routine by sporting a daring pixie cut. Not just a way to sleep in for a few more minutes, a pixie cut is a truly confident hairstyle that adds depth to your face. This cut is also ideal for someone who wants a low-maintenance style that merely needs a bit of the Bed Head by TIGI Manipulator Matte Cream to help mold hair in various directions or to keep it controlled and slick.

2. Low-Commitment Bangs

Experiment with your tresses by adding thick bangs or a fringe to your look. This is an ideal new hairstyle to try if you want to simply enhance an existing haircut with something a little trendier. One styling bonus is that bangs are pretty low-key to grow out if need be: You can easily sweep your fringe to the side with some fun accessories, as well as use styling products to help with the growing-out phase.

3. Face-Framing Layers

This is a great look for those that have always had the same hairdo since high school (you know who you are). If you aren’t the experimental type, layers are a great way to play with some dimension as you add texture to your hair. Lock in your hairstyle by using some of the  volumizing spray such as the TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray.

4. Blunt Bob

A chin-length hairstyle is a great twist on the classic bob with its youthful blunt ends. Go for a one-length bob for easy maintenance as well as a versatile option if you suddenly get bored of this style. This is an especially chic yet professional look to try out as you start the job hunt.

5. Long Hair

Your 20s are the ideal time to flirt with some serious length. This no-fuss hairstyle is great for busy gals who want something low-maintenance or wash-and-wear. It also offers a lot of variety with various hair types, i.e. straight-haired girls can experiment with beachy waves and wavy-haired girls can test different blown-out new hairstyles.

6. Half-Shaven Hair

This eye-raising style is a fun way to experiment with both worlds: length and extremely short hair. This is ideal if you have a flexible, more creative job that lets you show off some edge. This is also a look that you should be willing to commit to since it requires upkeep on the shaved side, plus perseverance in growing out.

7. New Hair Color 

Your 20s are an ideal time to play around with different hair colors. Whether that means a different natural base than your own, or, say, a trendy gray, this is the time to have fun with your strands or even your entire head! Maintain your look a little bit longer by using a color-safe shampoo and conditioner, such as the TRESemmé Color Revitalize Shampoo and the TRESemmé Color Revitalize Conditioner.

Have fun with your look and try something new. Your 20s are a great time to experiment with your hair where you can always mix it up if you get bored.
