"New Year, New Hair": A Guide To Must-Try Hairstyles For 2021
As a very superstitious person, I am a firm believer that it's important to enter the new year with new energy. A new year is an opportunity to re-invent yourself - be who you wanna be, wear what you wanna wear, and determine how you want to look. This year, I decided to try out a new hairstyle, medium twists, that I've been dying to try as a way of going into 2021 with a fresh look. I've also made a pledge to myself to be more adventurous with my hair choices next year.
Here are some of my picks for all the hairstyles I want to try for 2021:
Fulani braids are so fun and playful to me. They give me flashbacks to being a kid and constantly having my hair braided with my beads!

Butterfly Locs are a new trend that is emerging out of the classic "faux locs" hairstyle. They're more crinkled and less uniform than regular faux locs. I think they are perfect for the winter.

FRONTAL SEW IN W/ COLOR
I have yet to try a full sew-in with color, so this is one 2021 hairstyle I can't wait to try. Color is such a look, and the possibilities are endless!

ZIG ZAG BUNS
Another re-emerging trend that is taking over the hair world is Zig Zag buns. This hairstyle gives me very much Y2K vibes.

Last but not least, we have an OG Style with Jumbo Twists. I think twists of all kinds are perfect year-round, and they look good on pretty much everybody.
