When it comes to picking your haircut for 2011 there’s one thing you need to know: the year’s fashion is all about revivals. Revivals of the ‘60s, ‘70s, and of more recent looks. And, of course, as it is for fashion, this concept is also translated to this year’s hair cut trends.
In 2011 the most on-trend haircuts are influenced by the 20th century, with short haircuts from 1960s and mid-length haircuts from the 1970s.
Hair trends tend to come and go, but not so for this 2011 women’s hair cut trend, which is experiencing a major resurgence. Last seen as a major trend in 2007/2008, this haircut detail had died off by 2010 – a year which was dominated by hairstyles rather than haircuts. But in 2011 it is back as a predominant haircut trend, and one that can be worn with nearly all of this year’s hair colour and hair style trends.
Bob with Fringe/Bangs
The bob is back, although it has been reinterpreted and re-imagined giving it a fresh look. Yes, it was last with us only a few short years ago, but as a 2011 hair cut it is longer and features a fringe or bangs. The bob is softer and more retro-inspired, having been infused with ‘60s backcombing and a soft, rounded shape taken from the classic ‘70s look.
Pixie Crop Haircut
Recent hair trends have moved in three year cycles and 2011 is no different. And so we see yet another evolution of this short hair style as it reverts to the same length that was last popular in 2007, a change from the 2010 hair cut that was all about short sides and a longer fringe.
