Best Hair Colors for Spring 2021

Tues, 30 Mar.

When it comes to hairstyle trends, nothing is ever really out. That being said, there are certain looks that come and go naturally- especially when it comes to hair colors. With a new season comes new color trends and fresh ways of coloring and highlighting hair. Bearing this in mind, you may be wondering what the best hair colors for spring 2021 are. While it’s safe to say that 2021 will look a lot like 2020 in terms of what hair colors are popular, there are some hair colors to be aware of if you want to keep with what’s trending.

Today, MyCuts will be telling you all about the best hair colors for spring 2021 according to some of the country’s top hairstylists. These hairstylists may not be psychic but they listen to the needs of their customers and this gives them a good idea of what will be in this season. If you’re looking to make a change to your hair color this spring, we’re here with all of the information that you need to make the best decision for yourself. Let’s get started!

Hazelnut Brown

For those with naturally brown hair who are looking for an easy update that doesn’t cause much of a fuss, hazelnut brown is the color to go with this spring season. Hazelnut brown mixes shiny and rich with cold and warm tones. One of the best things about hazelnut brown is that there are multiple different ways to achieve this look. Either you can wear this as an all over single-process color or you can mix it in in the form of highlights to add dimension to your brunette base color- the choice is yours!

Another benefit offered by this particular trendy hair color for spring 2021 is that it allows you to switch up your natural hue a bit without going through an entire production that could leave your strands fried. For those with darker hair, this look is easily realized and will be far less damaging to your hair. That sounds like a win-win scenario to us!

Shadow Roots

Considering that salon capacities are lowered to about 25 percent due to the current pandemic, you’ll likely have to stretch out your salon appointments as much as possible. When you can’t go to a colorist regularly, you’ll want to choose a look that will extend the life of your hue. That’s where shadow roots come in. Shadow roots allow you to keep your roots dark while blending them into the lighter ends. You can think of shadow roots as a softer version of an ombre.

While shadow roots can work for almost any color, this hair color is especially good for blondes and this makes maintaining your color much more manageable. With the all over appearance of an ombre that features a perfect gradation of dark to light with both a vertical and horizontal color and tonal contrast, shadow roots are perfect for those who want something they can easily maintain. If you’re heading to the salon to get this look, ask your colorist for a root shadow over freshly done highlights and/or midlights.

The Money Piece

With bold, contrasting highlights becoming all the rage close to a year ago, hairstylists expect the face-framing twist known as the “money piece” to stay just as popular this spring. The “money piece” is a pop of highlights that start right at the part line in the front. One thing we are expecting to change about this look in spring 2021 is a move towards bolder color with people no longer choosing the contrasting brown/black combo.

Hairstylists say that the money piece is a great way to change up your color with less maintenance than doing an entire head of highlights. While there is less maintenance involved in this look, that isn’t to say that no maintenance will be required whatsoever. With this particular look, you’ll want to make sure that you maintain your color before it’s fully faded out. For this, you can use a semi-permanent color gloss or color depositing hair mask to keep the tone of your color looking top-notch.

Different Shades of Red

Finally, we fully expect to see a turn towards more fiery shades this spring. Shades of red will be appealing to many people in spring 2021 with the most popular hair color of the trend being vibrant copper reds, which are the best hue for medium to deep skin tones. That being said, all shades of red will be in this season. Everything from bold red to a more toned-down shade like strawberry will be in style.

That being said, keep in mind that shades of red usually come with a good deal of maintenance. This is because, to keep up with the intensity and brightness of the hue, you’ll want to see your colorist on a regular basis. You may want to consider getting a gloss or color-depositing conditioner which can be helpful in keeping your color fresh without a trip to the hair salon.

How to Prevent Dry Hair: Tips and Tricks

Tues, 28 Feb.

For those whose hair is feeling dry or brittle, you are far from alone. In fact, the winter season is a time where the hair naturally begins to feel drier and more prone to breakage. Why? Well, the dryness of the winter air, caused by less moisture and low humidity, can contribute to dry hair. That being said, it should be noted that dry hair is a very common problem that is both easily treated and preventable.

The first step to preventing dry hair is knowing just a few healthy hair tips that you can use to ensure that your locks are shinier, healthier, and easier to style all year long. Today, MyCuts will be highlighting some important tips and tricks that you can use to prevent dry hair. By keeping these things in mind, you can work to keep your hair more radiant and beautiful no matter the time of year. Let’s get started!

Know What Causes Dry Hair in the First Place

The first step to preventing dry hair is to know what causes it in the first place. While we’ve already discussed that the winter season is one external factor that impacts dry hair, there are several other factors to consider as well. For one, the air inside of your home may also be dry during the winter months and this can make your hair dry as well.

Another common culprit of dry hair is, believe it or not, hair washing . This is because washing your hair too frequently actually strips away the natural oils produced by your scalp. If you want to prevent dry hair this winter season and beyond, be sure to keep these factors in mind! If you want to cut down on how often you wash your hair, for example, invest in a good dry shampoo that will leave your hair looking freshly washed without stripping away those all-important natural oils.

Rinse Your Hair With Cool or Cold Water

Another hair washing-related tip that you should consider in order to prevent dry hair involves rinsing with cool or cold water. This is because hot water isn’t good for your hair. Apart from stripping away your hair’s natural oils, hot water also dries out the scalp. If you want to keep your hair looking healthy and radiant, always rinse with cool or cold water as this will work to revitalize your hair and leave it looking shiny.

Pay Attention to How You Dry Your Hair

Believe it or not, the way that you dry your hair after a shower or bath also plays an important role in the dryness of your hair. On the days that you wash your hair, we highly recommend using a microfiber towel to dry your hair. Rather than rubbing strands of hair against the fabric (this can cause breakage), scrunch your hair gently to dry it. If you elect to use a hairdryer instead, be sure to wait until your hair is roughly 75 percent dry to use the hairdryer as this will cause less damage to your hair than when drying it soaking wet. Additionally, remember to keep the heat settings on your hairdryer low. Finally, use a heat protectant before utilizing any hot tool! Your hair will thank you.

Prevent Dry Hair By Brushing Your Hair the Right Way

Finally, the last tip that we can offer to prevent dry hair involves the way that you brush your hair. That’s right, the method in which you brush your hair actually plays a role in its level of dryness! When brushing dry hair, be sure to use a safe tool, such as a wide-tooth comb. Further, to prevent breakage, remember to always brush from the bottom up. Brushing top to bottom causes unnecessary breakage and this is made even worse if you already have dry hair. Lastly, do not brush your hair if it is wet! Although it may be tempting to get those tangles out, brushing your hair when wet means pulling out and breaking hair much more easily.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this article containing tips and tricks you can use to keep your hair healthier, preventing dry hair.
