People might be tired of making new year resolutions from year to year. However, do you know what they never get tired of? A new hairstyle. And the best part of the story is the fact that there are multitudes of cool colour hair trends currently. Whereas the biggest hair colour trends of 2020 were mainly centred around pretty and natural takes on the colour tone with reasonably low maintenance – such as the cinnamon brown and undone blonde – experts forecast that 2021 is going to be a fun year as we work to bring back our normal lifestyles – somehow.
This is not implying that you can turn your hair colour to bright pink (however, if this is something you need, we have lots of recommendations for you). Instead, we have numerous unexpected variants of the classic shades which are in vogue too. Why request the basic hair highlights when there is the silver champagne colour for you to order? We discussed with leading stylists for the latest scoop on the currently hottest trends in hair colour. From the bright blue styles to the vintage blonde. This is the right screenshot to take to your next hair appointment.
The trendy hair colour styles of 2021
The different red shades styles
We talked to lots of hairstylists and everyone that we have talked to had forecasted that the red shades are bound to go viral this year. This means that it is the coolest option to use currently. Red is your best option because you can customise it to improve your natural hair beauty. All hairstyles ranging from brilliant garnet shades to pale strawberries of red are easily customisable to improve the eye colour and the skin tone. You could try this option by settling for the sultry peach tint, or you could fully opt for a more pronounced rouge amber.
Streaks that frame the face
The double bright streaks which go around the fact were seriously back last year – they are now known either as e-girl streaks or money-piece highlights, which depends on the part of the Gen Z/millennial side you side with. Based on a statement from our hair colourists, these streaks will be in vogue for the better part of 2021.
You should plan to begin noticing a more creative version of the style such as the two-toned hair streaks made popular by Bella Hadid. This trend is pretty easy to have because it could be trendy and very but does not mean that you get to colour most parts of the hair. “You should request from your hair colourist a slight bit of bright colour in the front parts. If you ever need to increase the intensity of the high contrast style, you could ask that you have a solid hair colour on the remaining parts of the hair also.
Clients now are not looking to massively change their hairstyles this winter; rather they prefer to make slight changes to their current hairstyles. These clients are now choosing more dimensional and richer variants of their summer and spring looks. For people with blonde hair, this could mean the addition of ribbons with deeper blonde shades for an increased shade-on-shade look. This might also mean adding gloss to the hair to get a buttery and deeper tone or you could try any one of the following fashionable hues such as apricot, peach, or marigold.
For brunettes, you could add gloss for a richer colour and you could add more gold, root beer, and amber tones, which are great options. In general, you get a feeling which is richer, warmer and a hair colour that looks increasingly lived-in.
One good way to pep up your look is to choose the subtle highlights without overdoing things. You add lots of pop and dimension to your hair with brown balayage. Everyone gets a nice and slight sun-kissed appearance. You should get varying brown shades from your colourist placed all over your hair to get the most natural and dimensional look.
The Black Diamond
Haven gone through an unexpected patch with 2020, we need this powerful colour to bring us back to our more glamorous and controllable lifestyles. This colour of shade stands for charisma, authority, and power. Because black hair attempts to look healthy and shiny, this colour looks good on various types of skin tones – when used on paler skin, you get an effect of Snow White, and will result in brilliant tones when used on darker skins. If you ever need this, just tell your stylist you need the inky black shade as well as a gloss to increase the shiny look as much as you can.
The Blonde Balayage
People who need blonder tones as part of their new year resolutions could go for the blonde balayage to complete a smooth transition. Tell your stylists that you need various blonde shades placed all over your hair,” she explains. (These other balayage hairstyles are lovely too).
The Almond Edges
While it could seem like a pretty long time away, however, our colourist already has their eyes set on the oncoming warmer months. You could create a pretty soft spring take to this with the use of warm nut shades. In 2021, the warmer months will normally reveal an abundance of the walnut, almond, and cashew type of shades added to the brunette style. You should ensure that you are ready for spring when it finally approaches. You will need to tell your stylist that you need a dark blonde and neutral light brown highlighting which blends nicely with the natural colours of the hair.
The silver champagne
It happens that people can go for two of these designs, as shown here with this brilliant blonde and warm accents. For ash blondes looking for a brand-new tonal option which does not dabble into gold, this is gorgeous. Get your hair colourist to make use of the translucent silvery and pear toners in the blonde hair.
The Copper Sunset
Speaking further, nature had inspired our colourists a lot, especially when having her sunset walks this year. They studied the different colors in the sky. They have noticed that pastels have gone strong for this last few years are bound to begin to witness an increasing amount of more pronounced colours submerging such as this copper sunset hue. One excellent way of easing into this is to use a red tint or gloss over the normal foundation colour.
The flower child blonde
With this new year, we have several soft-looking blondes that you can have on for the entire year. For example, the retro-blonde that is rooted. Make the roots look natural and get the hues of baby blonde faded into the hair. You could then tell your colourist to get the natural blonde shade melt which can be maintained just about two times a year. You should remember that this look will appear increasingly low-maintenance for people with natural blonde since the darker will need you to maintain it more frequently.
People who need to get a shade that is fun will need to look past the baby pink. Amethyst is a fun colour of the hair which is used to strike a balance between delicacy and strength and it is usually prefer to have this colour on dark-toned complexions. It looks bold and yet still soft. The orchid tone is used to bring out a warmer take on violet. For people who are tempted by this, they will need to have in mind that they will need to bleach their hairs fully before they can now have on the warmer pastel violet.
The hazelnut brunette
Updating on brown hues, it is again turned to nature. Now, we had looked to hazelnuts for inspiration. The brunette shade is more like colour-on-colour brown with bits of light browns, golden to get depths of a more intense ashy brown hue, referring to it a “low maintenance but high impact. To get a similar look, we had recommended that you bring in multiple photo references to the hairstylist, for them to understand the specific tones that you need.
Fully accepting gray
During this past year, lots of women are now opting for an increased natural style to allow their gray hair to grow out. With the pandemic lockdown forcing salons to be closed for several months, people now had the opportunity to notice the possibilities that come along when they accept their normal hair colours: Gray hairs. People can see this as a big change, whereas you tend to get powerful results, this could be a process where you tend to mix the new hair growth comprising salt-and-pepper and ends with old colours for people who do not want to cut it off. If you are looking to choose this path, you will need to work together with your hairstylist and this could be quite an involved process. Our colourists usually creates a mapped schedule to let their clients know what to anticipate in relationship with the timelines. The moment that you have the grow out in the right place, it is usually recommended the semi-permanent gloss which is used to prevent the gray from appearing like yellow in colour.
The Mahogany Glow
We had red tinges from complete ginger to peach trending seriously in 2020, and the shades seem to be the in-thing for the whole of this year. One most recent improved variant of this fashionable style is the Mahogany Glow which is perfect for dark-haired people. The accents which are red-brown in colour beautifully reflect light when used on brilliant brunette styles. These tones are most flattering on people with textured hair and comes with a rather natural base colour that is dark in nature. To get a look that is similar, you will need to meet up with your hair colourist to get your mahogany pigments to be blended perfectly into your natural brunette shade.
The Sand Tropez
One other trend that is getting to become big this year, is the multitone blonde, such as this fabulous sand shade being rocked by Kylie Jenner. While gold or ash might not cut it, this style is a fabulous combination of both styles. Blending the midlights and highlights results to the multidimensional colours of cool beige and warm sandy tones which are perfect for people looking to maintain a beach-like vibe throughout the year.
The Reverse Balayage
This is certainly a new trend – the reverse balayage. Lots of people are out to get the colour that comes with low maintenance, and this solution is perfect. For people who already have rather bright highlights who want something that grows out easily, it is recommended that they demand a base colour that is a shade lighter than your original hair. It will then mix smoothly with both the original colour of your high and the highlights, resulting in much lower contrast. However, there would still be several pops from the highlights.
One style that will also become trendy this year is the chunky highlights. This style is recreating what was in vogue back in the ‘90s. This is carried out through foiling or painting thick and chunky highlights around the face and when you talk about the style you want your hair to be in with your hairstylist, this will decide on the lightness and thickness of the highlights of the hair.
One outstanding trend for this year, are the red shades, however, if you do not like to fully go with this option, you could have your hairstylist weave in few red pieces into the base foundation of the hair. To get a wave of subtle pop, you should try this with auburn shades that are mixed all over the hair. Anything with two tones easily results in an excellent dimension all over the hair. This style is highly recommended for brunettes with warmer tones that want a little change.
The buttercream blonde
People who have naturally blonde hair that are looking to go with a lighter shade and not platinum, are recommended to choose the baby blonde plus a slightly warm hue. Having to work off from a naturally light canvas, you will be cutting through different layers involving underlying warmth that usually takes hours to achieve in brunettes. They will grow out easily and nice and not need much maintenance. You could just apply highlights every once or two times a year. Ensure that you get your colourist to observe your skin, lip, and eye hues to understand what is just enough or too buttery.
The fantasy blue
During the winter period, we have expected blue to leapfrog pink as the day’s fun colour. But we have a reason that you do not get to see this as much as pink, this is because it is more difficult to achieve as it appears pale on the skin however, it can result in any redness, and you will need to take care if you are concerned in this regard.
This can appear as a tinge green for people whose hair are not sufficiently light. They will need to inform their hair colourists to get the hair filled up to eliminate any tone of yellow before you choosing your blue shade. We recommended to go for Olaplex hair treatment with all the main changes, especially something such as this that uses bleach.
The barely-there highlights
You also get an excellent option for a slight lift without any form of maintenance. In this case, you get to ask for hair highlights that comes with just a few shades lighter than your original hair shade to bring in some hair dimension without getting any unwanted grow out.
For people who are yet to make up their minds about dyeing their hair colour blonde, you now have the first step to do that. The matte brown colour is just about right for nearly all skin tones. To ensure that your hair colour stylist colours your hair for an unusually longer time to give the hair a lasting brown and dense look – and also not to give it brassy tones.
The Golden Pops
Using bold highlights is suitable for hair colours of all types – and not only blonde. The primary thing here is to get the right hair colour tone, and we recommend the gold colour tone. It is right for everyone to opt for the soft golden pops because gold seems to reflect light the most leading to the creation of the most intense shine. You should keep things clear with your hair colourist on the exact blonde tone that you want for your pops, to prevent you from having the platinum Barbie doll look.
This blonde tone looks lovely because it has a ‘70s vibe to it, and can be effortlessly and seamlessly applied and we called this multi-dimensional shade for the pampas grass which has a similar tone. You apply the first application of this tone in the babylight form. Subsequently, you weave through the slightly bolder pieces using hand painting and foils, which ends up creating slight pops of a brighter-toned off-white.
