2021 is a year of throwbacks, especially when it comes to hairstyles. From the 90s mullet to voluminous curls, celebrities, influencers and hairstylists everywhere have been spotted recreating retro hairstyles, but with a modern touch.
But if you think that most of these retro hair trends are just not something you can pull off IRL, then we’re about to prove you wrong! Scroll down for four updated yet incredibly stylish retro hair trends that you can easily pull off today!

The trendiest edgy hairstyle from back in the day, the shag haircut is back again! But wait, there’s more. It comes with a cool new update. If you prefer more feminine haircuts but still want to go for that cool-girl vibe, the 2021 shag is perfect for you.
02. Claw clips

Messy buns are a girl’s best friends. They are the easiest to make and look so chic when done right. And with hair accessories having a major moment RN, there’s no reason to not level up that messy bun while still putting in zero effort! The big claw clips from the 90s are the perfect way to keep your hair out of your face and still look stylish while doing your chores or running errands.
03. Flipped ponytail

Didn’t wash your hair in three days, and your friends have decided to have a last-minute virtual drinking party? No problem! The flipped ponytail from the 60s has got your back. Simply comb your hair to get rid of all the tangles. Secure your hair in a high ponytail and use a heat styling tool to flip the ends outwards or inwards (your choice), and voila! So simple and chic.
04. Chunky highlights

This early 2000s hair colour trend was a total rage among celebrities. But instead of getting blonde ones like Kareena Kapoor from Hulchul (who remembers that?), the 2021 chunky hair trend is more like a balayage. The colour is softer at the root with chunky highlights balanced with lowlights to give the tresses more depth and movement than one-dimensional global hair colour.
