Last year was quite a roller coaster for half of the world. PJ’s and Zoom calls had taken over our lives. Fortunately, the vibe is back in 2021 and it’s time to make a comeback to the salons, get dressed and try some Insta-worthy hairstyles. After all, good hair days are prestigious!

1) The Retro Half Pony ‘Tale’

So very SASSY. The 90’s flipped half-up half-down ponytail is a flawless selection for any occasion.


So how do you kick off this flattering hairstyle? All you need to do is start by sectioning your hair diagonally on one side to create that sleek front swoop. Next, using a flat iron, straighten the hair while also flipping the ends of your hair. Put half of the hair up in a precise, clean ponytail on the crown of the head while leaving the front and the rest of the hair down. And voila! This sleek, sexy look requires minimal effort but is definitely worth great applauds.


2) The Low Bun

A signature, effortless and quick hairstyle – the classic low bun. Any hair length can rock this style. Yes, that’s right ladies. This is a super elegant style for a graceful appearance. 

Brushback your hair to get a smoothened effect. Next, hold your hair tight together and make a low ponytail. Lastly, twist the ponytail and wrap it into a bun. Use a hair tie and bobby pins to secure the bun well.

And you have an on the go, quick hairdo in 5 minutes.


3) The Curtain ‘Banging’ it

2021 without Curtain bangs is like Ariana Grande without her ponytail. It is certain that curtain bangs made it to the top of the list in 2021 when it comes to haircut trends. A super easy hairstyle on curtain bangs will upgrade any look within minutes. Buns are a classic, be it messy or slicked back. Curtain bangs on a bun is that stunning look any woman would fancy and it is a super easy-breezy trick. 


All you need to do is tie your hair into a ponytail and twist it into a bun on the top of the head. Secure it with a hair tie and some bobby pins. Let those curtain bangs flow along with some extra compliments in your way.


4) Messing with the tail

A strong player of the hair game – the messy ponytail. Who knew that deconstructed hair could be the new sexy? This hairstyle embraces imperfections and gives an extra point to the overall look. 


Comb through the hair with your fingers instead of a hairbrush and tie them into a ponytail as per your desired height. Lastly, using your fingers, create some volume in your hair while also giving them a messier look from the front. And that’s it, a piece of cake!


5) Slicked-back hair

This style is the supreme of sassy and chic. It portrays confidence and determines a bold, appealing look. This hairstyle is not at all complicated to recreate and primarily leans towards the focus on the face.


Pin the side of the hair behind the ears and arrange the top section of the hair, combing backwards and blow-drying. Conclude by using hairspray to fix the hairstyle. And there you are – a confident, bold woman making heads turn.
