When the world came to a stop in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic, styling our hair became the least of our priorities. With hair salons closed across the globe, it became difficult to experiment with new styles or trends. That’s why 2021 became the year of trying out new hair trends, and there are many styles that we predict will last well into 2022. With that, here are the top ten hair trends you should check out and try before this year ends.
At par with skunk stripe hair, high-contrast highlights are incredibly eye-catching because the colors compliment one another well. Thick stripes of light-colored hair, usually in white or blond, intertwine with darkly colored locks for a stunning, high-contrast mane.
To make a statement, consider coloring the strands closest to your face with a bold, bright color or in a shade different from your hair’s natural color. This will make your facial features more prominent and give your hair a little extra oomph, and there are a variety of ways you can style the streaks.
While bold, experimental colors were a huge thing at the start of 2021, the end of the year will see more muted, natural hair colors shining through. People will start favoring browns, blacks, and deep red shades, especially as the fall and winter seasons roll in.
Do away with the standard, old side parts, and middle parts, and get a little experimental with zig-zag hair parts. This is yet another hairstyle that was popular a few decades ago, and it’s made a comeback this 2021. With a fine-toothed comb and some hair gel, you can easily part your hair into alternating lanes. This can add extra emphasis to your look, and it’s best paired with a tight ponytail or updo.
Having a balayage will always be in. This gorgeous, go-to hairstyle is a favorite because it completely levels up your look, is easy to maintain, and will last you a relatively long time. If you’re thinking of what to tell your stylist, consider getting warm, caramel highlights for your balayage.
Wave goodbye to scrunchies and hair ties. This ’90s hair trend made a comeback in 2020, and it’s predicted to be something we’ll see way into 2021 hair trends. With hair claws, you can keep your hair up and away from your face without compromising its shape and experiment with a bunch of different hairstyles. As a bonus, you can choose from many different hair claw designs for the ones that would best complement your OOTD.
Also known as the “lob,” this hairstyle has made a comeback multiple times. It’s stylish, sleek, and professional, perfect for today’s modern woman. For a flattering cut that complements just about any face shape, have your hairstylist cut your hair to just above your collarbones.
Go for heavy layers and lots of texture with a shag haircut. The hairstyle is very choppy and chiseled, and it gives the illusion of full, voluminous hair. The best part? It works on pretty much any hair type!
’90s trends are known for coming back again and again, and hairstyles from that era are no exception. The pixie, straight bangs, box braids, the iconic “Rachel” hairstyle, and the flip are some of the frontrunners of this trend, and you can expect to see more of them in the coming weeks.
Healthy hair is in. This year, it’s all about making sure that your scalp is nourished and hydrated, and your locks are soft, vibrant, and lustrous. Invest in all-natural hair products that can best infuse your hair with nutrients, and schedule a visit to your local salon regularly to maintain your mane and get the best hair treatments.
