So, the calligraphy cut isn't exactly a haircut, but you still need to check it out! A unique hair-cutting technique that uses a calligraphy knife to cut hair at a 21-degree angle, this technique gives a razor-like effect to your hair while leaving it looking more voluminous and softer. It's quickly gaining traction, so if you're someone with relatively fine, thin hair — hop aboard this train already!
02. Shaggy hair

We were introduced to the modern-day shag with the wolf-cut, and now we're going deep into the realm of shaggy hair cuts. A certified cool and edgy cut that embraces your natural texture while giving you the 'straight outta bed, might be a rockstar' look, this one's a keeper for anyone who wants to look effortlessly chic.
03. Barely-there layers

Voluminous layers were so last year — this year, we're turning to '90s inspired, fine layers to step up our hair game. Barely-there, feathered layers work well for all hair types and balance out the volume of your hair while adding an extra bounce to your tresses.

No, we're not talking about the kitchen equipment! An amalgamation of the two most intriguing trends from summer 2021, a 'mixie' is a mix between a mullet and a pixie cut. A dainty crop that's easy to maintain, this one's great if you want to dip your toes in both the trends without going all the way.
05. Modern bobs

Fall 2021 hair trends seem to particularly be inclined towards shorter hair, and hey, we're not complaining! The last one on our list is a modern take on the '90s-inspired bob, which is asymmetrical and long in the front. Friendly tip: If you don't want to go chin-length, cutting it till the shoulders should be just right.
