What is the importance of a good haircut? Well, many consider that the haircut is the letter of introduction of every person. And is that, whether you agree or not with that, the truth is that, along with others such as clothing, is one of the most noticeable elements at a glance of any person.
On the other hand, there are also those who consider that the haircut is a reflection or a complement of the personality of the person who wears it. Be that as it may, the haircut is really very important in one way or another and something that can help us look our best.
However, many people wonder how to choose a good haircut and have their doubts about it. This is totally normal, having so many options at hand, sometimes it becomes complicated to choose.
Don’t worry anymore about this, today, from Salon Deauville’s barbershop, where we are experts in men’s hair fashion, we want to show you 5 haircuts that will be trendy during 2021. Pay attention and take note, because we will also tell you which one suits you best according to your face type.
Haircut trends for 2021: which one to choose?
2021 seems to be a year that has brought many changes for many people. As far as haircuts are concerned, you could say there is a 50/50 split. Some new cuts are introduced, but some existing cuts are recycled. Find out in the following lines!
During the 2020 confinement, many people had the idea to shave their hair. There are those who went so far as to do it. It seems unbelievable, but, wearing almost shaved hair will be a trend during this year.
While the buzz cut preserves the hair to some extent, it is really very little. The best thing to do in these cases is to have this cut done by a professional barber, because, although it looks simple, it is very complicated to do and you can easily make some mistakes.
The crop top is a good bet. It consists of wearing a regular cut on top, but wearing another straight cut at a certain height of the head. Many people call this one a bowl cut, because, in appearance, it reminds of a certain cut of yesteryear that was done to children with a bowl as a mold.
Some classics never go out of style. In the middle of 2021 many people still listen to The Beatles with the same passion of the sixties. Or, in the 21st century, there will also be those who play with retro video game consoles from the eighties and nineties. Some haircuts are not exempt from this and the toupee is a clear example.
The toupee, that versatile haircut with a small loop, will continue to be a trend in 2021. It looks good with just about everything, so it’s a great bet too.
The comb over has also been a trend before. It’s a great mix of long and short hair and is perfect for casual wear. It is characterized by having a gradient on the sides, but wearing the hair long on top and tilting it to one side or the other.
The comb over style was popular during the middle of the last decade and has now been revived for 2021.
Some people consider manes to be overrated, but this is not true. A trend for 2021 is to wear a medium-length haircut. In this case it should ideally stick out, but not fall to the shoulders.
What to consider when choosing a haircut?
There are many factors that are usually taken into account when choosing a haircut or another. There are those who value the clothing worn by the person getting the haircut, or their style. However, we consider those to be more secondary factors.
In this case, we will pay more attention to a single factor: the type of face. Some face types will favor a toupee, others a side parting… Anyway, we’ll talk about that in a moment.
However, we must clarify that this guide are only suggestions, remember that tastes are not always the same. At the end of the day, you can cut your hair however you want. You’ve already discovered 5 haircuts that will be trending this year 2021, now let’s talk about the different face types.
Popularly some face types are recognized due to the closest shape they have. This time we will list 5 of these which are among the most common ones. Let’s begin:
Round shaped faces are one of the most common. They favor a haircut that is narrow on the sides and medium high in the middle. The idea is that there is no monotony with the shape of the face, some features and the cut. A toupee would look great.
This face type is also common to some extent. Square faces do well with short hair. However, unlike round faces, square faces will look better if the cut is cut evenly short, i.e. all over.
An in-between haircut would also look good on a square face (like the last one on this year’s trend list). That is, not too long, but not too short either.
Unlike the above, oval faces are less common. It is said that people with an oval face are lucky because everything fits them (glasses styles, haircuts, etc.).
So, if you have an oval face, you have a lot of freedom and an equal catalog of options to choose from.
Another type of face is called diamond-shaped. With these, something similar happens as with square faces. However, they will look better with an in-between haircut, which we talked about earlier.
Finally, let’s talk about the triangular face shape. The main characteristic of this type of face is that the forehead stands out. A haircut that favors the diamond shaped face is one that provides volume in the front or partially covers the forehead. A toupee might be fine, even a cut that adds a fringe.
