Newest Trends in Haircuts

Everyone was thrilled to put 2020 in the rearview mirror. As the weather warms up in 2021, we are excited to see a change. And what's the one thing people look forward to the most? A new hairstyle. 

At Johnny Rodriguez The Salon® in Dallas and Plano Legacy West, our stylists stay ahead on the up-and-coming haircut trends. No matter your hair texture or style preference, we are trained and ready to show you the latest techniques and trends for your new look. If you aren't sure what you'd like to try yet, read through these styles. 

Rezo Cut

This fun and beautiful cut is the brainchild of master stylist Nubia Suarez. The Rezo cut is ideal for those with curls who want to celebrate them in all their spiral bounty. It has an even length all the way around your head, effectively freeing the curls from the root while maintaining length and volume. A Rezo cut, though designed for those with natural curls, can also look great when straightened. 

The Modern Mullet

The 1980s style mullet is making a resurgence in Texas in 2021. It is one of the year's biggest hair trends. You may have seen it worn recently by stars such as Rihanna and Zendaya. It features a long straight back with a face-framing fringe that suits all face shapes.

The Shag

The shag is defined not by the length but by layers. It works with or without bangs for any hair texture. It is very low maintenance and complements the head shape.  

Curtain Bangs

Hello again, 1970s! The long curtain bangs are back. These low-maintenance bangs are extremely versatile and perfect for those working up to a shorter bang. They are an easy way to soften up the look of long layers without committing to a traditional bang. 

The New Pixie

The fun, flirty, easy-to-maintain pixie is back with two variations for this year: very short a' la Zoe Kravitz or slightly longer like Kaia Gerber. Either gives you an instantly updated look. 

Blunt, Sweeping Bob

Blunt, bouncy bobs are in vogue, but this time they have a deep sweep to differentiate them. The sweep can aim for the jawline or mid-neck, depending on your hair's texture and your style preference. The key is to have a heavy weight line around the outer perimeter of the cut with a blunt bottom. 

Tight Crop

You've heard about women cutting their hair when they get rid of a partner? Well, this year, everyone is ridding themselves of the weight of the year we never wanted. One of the biggest trends is cutting it all off. The tight crop is particularly popular with those who are transitioning from relaxed to natural hair. 

Tapered Cut

In and around Dallas, Texas, the short, cropped cuts with tapered sides are all the rage. It is a great transitional cut for those moving toward natural hair or when growing out their hair. 

Asymmetrical Bob

Nothing shows you are a nonconformist like an asymmetrical bob. You can't help but look cool, polished, and confident when you have a shorter bob in the back than in front. If you are going for edgy, try it with one side shorter than the other. It works for all face shapes. 

The Rounded Afro

For those who want to embrace their beautiful, textured curls, the rounded afro is the modern take on a classic. This cut is achieved by blowing out the hair until it is straight, then cutting it dry. Depending on your style preferences, you can even add a part.

Buzz Cut

Even more dramatic than the close crop, the buzz cut has come out in a big way this year. You may have seen Halsey sporting her brightly colored version on the 'gram, as well as Tiffany Haddish and Ruby Rose. It's easy, it's fun, it's daring, and it frees you up from styling your hair.  

Chandelier Layers

If you aren't sure what to do to amp up your look, try long layers with long bangs. Chandelier layers are long at the back and graduated toward the face. The layers highlight the contour of the face and, combined with long bangs, brings out the eyes. 

The Modern Rachel

One of the all-time most iconic hairstyles was the Rachel. According to Glamour, requests for the modern version of the style have gone up 179% since the reunion show was announced. This highly layered cut works best on hair cut just above the shoulders. It imparts face-framing layers with high volume.
