2021 Hair Trends

Our favorite hair trends taking shape for 2021

Although we are only a few months into the new year, we’re already seeing a ton of 2021 hair trends emerge, many of which are from decades past. Whether you’re looking for a drastic change or something small to freshen up your tired tresses, these 2021 hair trends range from subtle to show-stopping. 

Curtain Bangs

The 70s have influenced many recent styles, and one we’re loving for 2021 is curtain bangs. Curtain bangs are most often parted down the center and swept to the side to frame your face and eyes. Recently, celebs like Selena Gomez and Billie Eilish are rocking this style. We can update this look by making it less voluminous and feathered. Whether you’re in that awkward bang grow-out phase or just want a low-maintenance way to switch up your style this year, some trendy fringe will do the trick!

Gray Blending

We’re here for gray hair. This au natural look, which allows you to embrace your gorgeous gray hues, is low maintenance but stays fresh with a current cut. Our stylists will work closely with you to blend your grays with highlights or lowlights that are similar to your natural color. While gray hair tends to be dry and brittle, you can keep your locks shiny and healthy by using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner and an occasional conditioning mask.

Chunky Highlights

Expect to see a continuation of the bold face-framing streaks that were popular in the late 90s and early aughts. Now coined money-piece highlights or e-girl streaks, these chunky highlights will add a pop of color to your locks. Ask your Alline Salon Group stylist for some bright color for your face-framing pieces and consider coloring the rest of your hair a solid color for a bold style.

Red Shades

Shades of red will be all the rage this year. If you have fair skin with pinkish undertones, stick with red-red or red-orange hues. Olive skin and darker-toned complexions should opt for a red-red or red-violet base. As a heads up, if you want something that is lighter or more vibrant than your current hair color (dark brunettes or black hair), you will need your hair lightened first, which can be a multi-step process.  Ask your Alline Salon Group hair stylist how to make this happen while keeping your hair healthy.

Modern Mullet

A modern-day version of the popular 80s mullet is softer while staying true to this heavily layered style. This traditionally adventurous style is now more wearable with shaggier and less dramatic sides. If you have a full face, this ‘do will complement your face shape nicely.
