New Year, New ‘Do! 8 Hairstyles for 2021 to Refresh Your Look

The new year looks good on you!

2021 has finally arrived and the New Year’s resolutions have begun. We love the start of the year because everyone is feeling restless for change and ready to take the leap of faith and redefine their style. If you’ve been contemplating and itching for a hairstyle reboot, we fully encourage you to go for it! We’ve rounded up three of our current favorite hairstyles for 2021 that we hope will inspire your next haircut.

Whether you’re looking for a new color, cut or just a small change, you need to embrace our mantra, “New Year, New ‘Do!”

1. Partial Blonde Highlights

No matter the length or cut of your hair, you can always spice it up with a splash of highlights! Have fun with your color by adding some partial blonde highlights to create a new contrast in your look. It’s the perfect compromise if you’ve been “DYEing” to go lighter but don’t want to risk all of the damage. Keep your blonde highlights vibrant and your strands healthy by washing with Bed Head by TIGI Dumb Blonde Purple Shampoo.

2. Textured Lob

We already know that lobs have been #trending for a while now, but why not try spicing them up? Add texture to your lob to give it a whole new look and feel. Whether you achieve this look from using a curler or the braid and air-dry technique, make sure you set it with a texturizing spray. A spritz of TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1 goes a long way.

3. Center-Part Side-Bangs

If you’re looking for a cut to help enable you to create more texture and face-flattering updos, then center-part side-bangs are for you. Having some longer side-bangs will create more volume in the front and also give you strands to frame your face with if you’re going for an updo. Keep these bangs styled and smooth by blowdrying them. Protect your strands while styling with a heat protectant, like Dove Style+Care Smooth and Shine Heat Protection Spray.

4. Hollywood Waves
