Textured Bob

Tendril fringe pieces and shinier finishes. Short hair on the gals is huge, especially blunt bobs worn with naturals textures. It has taken decades for people to stop using so many hot tools (often without heat protection), and embrace their natural hair texture. Instead they are getting the right hair products to compliment and accentuate what they already have. Let that hair shine!

Pixie crop

Remembering the trajectory of the last few big hair cutting trends helps us to predict what is ahead. The mullet’s predecessor was the shag – a rounded, layered shape with heaps of head hugging texture all the way through. Before that, hair cuts had slightly taken a backseat to colour for a moment and shapes were long and layered. If we continue on the same path, it’s likely that 2021 will see a continued embracing of shorter textured shapes. Perhaps variations of pixie crops will return. Once thing is for certain, it seems texture in general and natural waves and hair curling are being fully embraced and I’m sure that will continue.

tousled waves

In 2021 we’re going to see people embracing their natural texture a lot more, we’ll see people rocking natural waves and curls, think the beachy tousled look. I love Color Wow Dream Coat Curly for this as it’s so lightweight and can be scrunched and air dried into any texture wave or curl. On the flip side the bombshell is back, big bouncy voluminous lux hair, beautifully finished, shiny and fun! My go to for this look is Color Wow Raise the Root and Dream Coat, major volume and hair shine.

fresh blonde

70’s hair is having a real revival; lots of texture, layers with long face framing and curtain bangs is the new go too! Embracing the golden summer tone types of blonde which is very complementary to the 70’s style. In the fashion movement we are seeing lots of flared jeans, flower patterned blouses, mustard burnt orange and brown tones are all on show too which is complementary to hair trends. We anticipate less one length icy blondes this season, in place of width, volume and golden hues.

matte pastel

The direction of pastel and vivid is headed into a much more de-lustred vibe with colour that looks washed and worn. We are anticipating an emphasised focus on intentionally lived-in looks or more dynamic face frames and zoned blocks of colour. We’ll see less conventional shades such as mustards, khaki olive, denim and mellow yellow with orange tones. Faded reds that take on melon hues and crystalline purples and violets.

high pony

A Pony will never go out of fashion. The most trendy of trendy looks at the moment is a 70’s boho soft texture and the best way to maximise this daytime playful texture is to create a beautiful soft face framing evening Pony. Wearing your pony slightly higher at the back adds a chicness to this on trend texture. Incredibly versatile, you can take a day look into the evening easily with an Evo hair tie bungee and a few bobby pins in the top to add definition and shape.  Have some fun with a ponytail and never be out of fashion!
