Top 5 Biggest Hair Trends for 2021

Tues, 23 Nov.

Each new season there are new hair trends, and this can make predicting the styles, colors, and cuts that will be in fashion in the year ahead a challenge. In the previous year, some of the biggest hair trends have included fashionable looks such as the E-girl hairstyle and the peekaboo hair that has offered a whole new way to experiment with bright and vibrant color. In terms of cuts, shorter bobs have been all the rage. Further, in the wake of COVID-19, low-maintenance hair colors have been on everyone’s list thanks to the uncertainty of salon visits. But what does 2021 look like in regards to the biggest hair trends and how can you keep up to date with the changing times?

Today, MyCuts will be talking about the top 5 biggest hair trends that we expect to see in the coming year. These hair trends are what we think will be popular in the year ahead thanks to the expert insight of hair professionals. When you see what is likely to be in style next year, it is likely you’ll be all the more excited to make your next hair salon appointment. Let’s get started!

Holiday Hair

The first hair trend of 2021 that you should know about is holiday hair. While bronde and balayage have been popular in recent years, 2021 is likely to see a shift towards caramel color that celebrity stylists are calling “holiday hair”. Rather than using one single shade, celebrity stylists believe that highlighting techniques will start to shift towards emulating the natural lightness of the hair in order to create a look that one would normally have from travelling the world. Looking for a new hair color that will be all the rage in 2021? Read up on holiday hair! It’s sure to be in fashion next year (and possibly beyond)!

Bigger and Bolder Accessories

If you’re a fan of styling your hair with eye-catching accessories, you’ll be happy to know that bigger and bolder hair accessories are going to be in style next year! While some may have believed that the use of hair accessories would be on their way out as of next year, nothing could be further from the truth. According to celebrity stylist Travis Balcke, “There is always a time and place for accessories and the reason we are sending more accessories recently is because the options are getting better and better.” Looking to stock up on fun, flirty hair accessories in the near future? You’ll be considered a trendsetter in 2021!

The Shag is Here to Stay

In terms of haircuts, the shag style is going to be seriously popular in 2021. The reason that many professional stylists believe that the shag haircut is likely to reign supreme in 2021 is due to its versatility. You can do just about anything with a shag haircut whether it be softening them out or going almost mullet-like as has recently become a popular look sported by pop singer Miley Cyrus. The shag haircut may be a blast from the past, but history tends to repeat itself and we’re confident that this particular hairstyle will be on many people’s minds in 2021.

Beach-Textured Blonde

Do beach waves ever really go out of style? Certainly not any time soon. According to many professional stylists, the beach-textured blonde look is going to be amped up in 2021. Stylists believe that 2021 will be the year of the worn-in texture in color that beach blondes are so well known for. Looking to see if blondes really do have more fun next year? You are likely to be in good company!

Low-Maintenance Looks

One hair trend that we expect to see continued in 2021 is the love for low-maintenance looks. While 2020 may have made low-maintenance looks a staple by sheer necessity, we believe these styles will be fully embraced next year. Shorter cuts and natural colors will be key in 2021 and this will likely be due to the fact that we still expect trips to the hair salon to be less of a common occurrence in 2021, at least for the first half of the year. But who doesn’t like having to worry less about how they style and color their hair? We know we do!
