Here we are in 2021, and although it has been filled with unexpected upheavals like its predecessor, we are still optimistic that we plan to make the most of this year. We’ve already (albeit temporarily) started thinking collecting fancy dresses for backdated weddings and we’ve even predicted nail colors new boot styles and types of jeans that will be big news in the coming months. But with so much uncertainty still circling, there’s one question that remains in the back of our minds: What exactly will be defining hair trends in 2021? True, they don’t have much to live on.
Back in March last year, when hairdressers around the world were forced to close their doors, no one could see the impact it had on our tresses. Those who can’t imagine large veins have little choice but to re-identify themselves in the box office at home, while others with shorter hair or fringe should be quick with a pair of scissors to fix the hair pretty quickly.
Some of you may have found it liberating and have since adopted low -maintenance activities, but for others, the time spent from the hairdresser's chair just proved their love of the salon. What we want to know is, Where will that leave us and any potential hairstyle trends in 2021? Will we start favoring small doses on styles that require care every eight weeks, or will “more” become the mantra for any hair devotee? We decided to go right to the source to find out, asking top hairstylists for their input. Scroll below to find out what they think will be the biggest low-maintenance hair trends in 2021.
"When it comes to color, you don't want something that requires too much precision," the hairstylist revealed. of the stars George Northwood . “One thing that has become a signature of ours is a softer, natural bahayage . With the busyness of COVID and salons covered for months, people are moving away from the fresh, highlighted that looks pretty high maintenance and tricky to keep neat at home without your colorist. "
" At the first lockdown, many of my clients saw their natural color grow and really got used to it, "he said. Northwood continued. “So we’re now seeing more clients experimenting with keeping their hair closer to their natural color, easier to manage and seeing you in the long spaces between appointments, which is a smart moving in these times of uncertainty. ”
Another leading hairdresser who shares this sentiment is the authority on hair color, Rita Hazan . “I believe people will start to embrace the color of low sustainability in 2021,” he explains. "After a very long time without visiting the salon while in lockdown, this is inevitable. Single-process coloring or covering up gray veins is easier to do at home, even with a home kit. Look no further. only one color closest to you Like soft bahayage, subtle highlights are also low maintenance and can grow well, even with roots, because there isn’t much difference. ”
"After surviving the a lockdown, i found many of my clients were looking for u further enhance their large style and instead look short, with tapered cuts either in their natural form or relaxed, "said Nicole Pembrook with- owner of International Beauty Expert who you may know from Instagram as Healthy Hair Doctor. "These looks are timeless, chic, and easy to style. Opt for length in the crown, keeping things shorter at the edges."
"I'm starting to see a lot of women (and men) learning to embrace gray gray and avoid drastic change," Hazan revealed. . "I would say it's just as important to take care of the quality of silver hair. You need to try and remove any yellow or orange tones that may find their way into color growth. Using gloss between washes and air conditioning is ideal for it. "
"As it's currently in this cycle of entry and exit lockdown, I think a lot of people are looking for an easy -to -maintain style," Northwood said. "Many of our clients request effortlessly, undo bob which is one of my signature styles that came from working with Alexa Chung. I think it will continue to be popular going into 2021, as it’s relatively relaxed, messy style, meaning when it grows up it will look effortlessly chic. ”
“ Shoulder shorts will be popular: the shag the blunt textured bob, the cheekbone -skimming bob, ”confirmed Rosslyn Orr, salon director and head technician at Charlie Miller South St Andrew Street . "Almost all of my clients ask me about low-maintenance, volatile, and unstructured styles."
Red was one of the breakout color trends in 2020, and a look at Natalie Cole, salon director and head technician at Charlie Miller Fredrick Street predictions are set to proceed under a more muted guise. " Coppers will be chestnut warmer and more muted. As life becomes less, there will be a transition to a more natural look that doesn't require a visit to the salon every few week.That's something my client wants – colors with longer lifespans. "
" For me, it's all about the subtle streak of that color, "Pembrook proved. "This shade looks great with any hairstyle."
Bobs and lobs may prove popular but long hair can be said to be less demanding. “I think this is a great time to reflect and be inspired by what worked and looked effortless in the past,” suggests Nicholas Hardwick, chief stylist at Josh Wood Color . "' 70s and ' 80s hair – just don't run away; I'm not talking frizzy perms – like long layered, wavy cut is a look that takes the test of time. layers are key, because you don't have to go to the salon often to freshen them up. Blunt, one-length style requires more maintenance, so I advise messy in the end. "
“Wearing masks will continue to be non-negotiable, and many of my regular clients are having pendants cut to complement them , ”said Amber Swift, salon director, and head technician at Charlie Miller Holy Corner . “It’s generally easier to maintain in the colder months, because the heat often presents style problems, the fringes help to frame and define the face, so I see the logic in one’s desire. to complement your mask. I recommend going with a choppier, more relaxed cut that is easier to copy if a more serious lockdown is put in again. "
