Top 8 Trendy Men’s Haircuts 2021

The year of 2021 is already halfway and most parts of the world have seen a slow revival of the men’s hair system industry as Covid vaccination is rolled out globally. For salons, one of the most crucial things for you to do is to gain a better grasp of how the trend in men’s hairstyles has been changing over the past year.

Today, New Times Hair is going to share with you the top 8 trendy men’s haircuts in 2021 that have become popular than ever among our clients from all over the world. So you would get a general idea on what men’s haircuts are more likely to be linked to your business prospect.

1. French Crop


Being one of the most classic 2021 men’s haircuts, the French Crop has never ceased to draw followers across the world. It features short hair all around the head and a noticeable fringe.

However, French crop features a longer fringe in comparison to Caesar cut, with which many people often get mistaken. The main reason it becomes more popular is this haircut comes with a large extent of flexibility and adaptability.

It can be altered in so many ways to cater to the needs of people with different tastes as aside from classic French crop, there are long French crop, short French crop, textured French crop, disconnected French, straight French crop and so on.

So those who are into this hairstyle can keep asking for different types to meet their wants for novelties.

2. Buzzcut


As another very versatile men’s hairstyle that is very open to alterations, Buzzcut is definitely the thing for those guys with masculine facial features such as a strong jawline, accentuated cheekbones in particular. It will give them a very sharp and mature look.

One thing to note is that it goes really well with those who have a receding hairline given how short the hair would be, so your front hairline would not appear unnatural in any way accompanied with Buzzcut.

For another, this men’s haircut is low maintenance, no fuss, and entails little grooming, which are the things many guys give a great deal of importance to.

3. Pompadour Fade


This 2021 men’s hairstyle exploded to popularity among the youth in their 20s across the world as a fashion choice. It highly reflects one’s individualism and a special taste for fashion.

The pompadour fade haircut perfectly combines the classic pompadour with a taper fade. It has very short sides and long, high-volume hair on top. People usually have two options of styling their hair by either wearing it slicked back or leaving it loose and natural as it is.

Furthermore, this 2021 men’s haircut is also versatile with a variation of fades for people to choose from.

4. Quiff Haircut


With a long history that dates back to the 1950s, the quiff haircut has made its comeback in the last year. Just as fashionable as the pompadour fade haircut, it features long hair on the top, especially at the front, and trimmed hair at the back and sides.

It particularly fits guys with a round, square, or oval face shape as they could get away with basically any hairstyle base on the quiff haircut.

However, your hair cannot be too short if you want to go with this men’s haircut. Three inches would be the minimum for hair on the top to be clipped to a quiff.

5. Slick Back


This hairstyle is easily achieved by slicking the hair back with the use of pomade to secure the shape. It is definitely one of the coolest hairstyles in the western world.

Appearing very mature, sexy, and practical, this hairstyle is highly favored by those office people who want to have a more professional personal image to move up the career ladder. That accounts for why there is a larger share of people in their late 20s and 30s who are obsessed with this hairstyle.

However, the slick back is practically applicable to straight hair instead of curly hair as one could imagine how hard it would be to brush curly hair back. When brushing your hair back, it is recommended to go gentle and slow to avoid hair-pulling.

6. Side Part


The side part hairstyle dates back all the way to the early 1900s, and it still remains one of the most common hairstyles nowadays for all age groups.

Just like the slick back hairstyle, you will also need to rely on pomade products to secure its shape. The main difference is the hair is brushed to either the left side or the right side instead of the back. It similarly goes well with professional appearances featured by maturity and vibrancy.

One thing that makes this hairstyle that common and prevalent turns out to be the fact that it manages to well complement any face shape to make for a decent and presentable appearance with nearly no limitations!

7. Lob


Lob is known as one of the most common hairstyles among women that takes its natural shape. In recent years, the hair fashion world has seen a slight tendency of men going for this hairstyle.

To have this hairstyle, men need to grow all their hair until they are around ten inches long. So it is quite a low maintenance option that needs little effort in styling or combing the hair whether it is straight hair or curly hair.

The lob hairstyle should be the best option for men who want to appear less masculine and have a less assertive personality. Besides, it can perfectly complement men’s face in a way that makes it look smaller than it actually is, which is a thing that pleases many guys out there!

8. Dreadlocks


Being very well-known and recognized, this hairstyle far does not have as many followers as the other 2021 men’s hairstyles mentioned above though.

Not because it is high maintenance, as one would need to have very afro-textured hair types to have it set up, which explains why the very majority of its followers has been from the black racial groups.

Unlike other men’s hairstyles, this one is equally popular among both men and women, despite that it is more commonly seen among youngsters.

However, to have a hair wig that is compatible with this hairstyle, the hair has of the wig has to be exclusively Afro-textured hair.


Above concludes the top 8 trendy hairstyles in 2021 that we think could help you be more in tune with the current trend in hair fashion globally whether you have stepped into this field or not. However, the hairstyle world keeps changing all the time in accordance with changes in people’s tastes and shifts of trends and mainstream culture.

● What hobbies and interests do you have?

I enjoy exercising. That’s a very important part of my life. I’m a super active person.

● Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

No, not that I know of. I’m a very realistic person. If you mention outlandish stuff like aliens, monster in the bush, I’d be out of my mind.

● What is something you would love to do in the future?

I want to learn how to swim. I know it might sound a bit sarcastic, as I just mentioned that I enjoy doing exercise. Unfortunately, swimming hasn’t been on my list. I think I better catch up on that.

● What wig would you wear if you wore one and why?

I’d give HW1 a try. It looks natural and beautiful. Though we categorize it as a medical wig, almost any female can wear it. It’s got a lace mesh base, breathable, and flexible. You don’t need glue or tape to fix it to your head. Pretty easy, and it gives you all the long hair look a girl could want.

  • How would people in the office describe you?

At our end-of-year conference, my colleagues agreed that I’m a warm hearted, positive, and easy-going teammate. It gives me a sense of reward.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I don’t like being confined in a very small space. I believe it was due to a childhood experience. When I was six years old, I accidentally tripped and fell into a shallow well. I had to wait for two hours before I was found. Since then, I’ve found I just can’t tolerate the idea of being alone. I guess that makes me an active team player.

  • You are happiest when…

This may sound boastful, but it’s true. It’s just part of my nature to help others. When I actually see that what I did for them has helped them achieve something, it just makes me excited.

  • Which mens/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

I recomend HS25V. Oftentimes I’d introduce this model to my new clients to start with, so they can introduce this to their new clients see if hair systems are what really suit them, before they carry on with lace or mono hair systems.

They keep calling me “pretty Winni pretty brainy.” I’d take that as a compliment. I’d say I’m generally pretty fast in term of thinking and figuring out solutions. My teammates often turn to me for help, too. And It turned out that most of the time my ideas worked for them.

  • Do you have any pet hates?

I’m a typical town girl, you know. I’m into cats and dogs. But things like snakes, all sorts of insects, and hamsters; they are not my cup of tea. So, never get them near me.

  • Which mens/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that?

Most of my clietns are after Q6. And their clients happened to be guys who are into hair systems that are durable and natural. Q6 is a pretty good pick for them. With proper care, it should easily last 6 months.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I’m always afaid of heights. With any tall buildings, be it a chimney or TV tower, I look at it, and imagine I’m looking down right from the top, it will give me sweaty palms.

  • Do you have any pet hates?

Not at all. I generally love all pets. Dog, cats, guinea pigs, rabits, etc. I love them.

When you feel tired,it means you are walking uphill. I believe this quote as a truth that gives me a lift whenever I’m down. I believe there’s no gain without pain. Without trying, we can’t achieve anything.

  • Which men’s/women’s hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

With me personally, the best-selling hair system has been HS1. It has what it’s required out of a good quality hair system, in terms of a natural-looking hairline, undetectable scalp, etc. Most wearers and salon owners are familiar with it. Plus, all our clients have faith in the quality of this hair system. According to their feedback, this is an easy-to-attach, easy-to-maintain hair system for both men and women.

I don’t know why I share the same gene with Doraemon. I’m scared of rats. I’m a 6’3″, but I hate rats; seeing one really freaks me out.

  • Which men/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

New Australia. When it first came out in early 2023, it made me top of sales. I think most wearers like it because at the design statge, our experts considered all possible aspects people could want from a hairpiece, such as a natural look, a level of comfort, and affordablity; it’s similar to lace, but most wearers can afford.
