Letting go of the year 2020 is like leaving a lot of toxicity behind. And when you break up with toxicity, you need something new and colorful in life. For years, changing hair color and hairstyle has worked wonderfully for those looking for a change in life, and 2020 deserves no lesser goodbye.
Trips to our favorite salons may not have been possible last year, but that did not stop the people who experiment with their hair for their life. Now that things are slowly getting back to normal in 2021, maybe it’s time to go out there and try colors that people love right now and hair colors that will trend in 2021. Trust us on these; you might want to come back at the end of the year and check how many we got right!
2020 was the year of subtle colors, like cinnamon brown and undone blonde. These colors were minimalistic and low-maintenance and dominated 2020. However, 2021 seems like the year where people are willing to be more experimentative with how they style their hair. “New Year, New us,” after all.
Even though things are starting to look different now, It’s safe to say that 2021 may not be very dissimilar from 2020 in terms of visiting your salon or spa. Refreshing your hair color at home is certainly an idea to try out if you’re confident in your skills and ability not to make a mess. However, it’s not recommended to color your hair. At least, not in most cases. There are numerous ways to maintain your color from the home while being safe. Especially now that most salons have put all the safety precautions in place, you can maintain the guidelines and get your hair and dye jobs without any problems. If you still aren’t sure about visiting the salon, you call up your regular stylist to inquire about what types of COVID-safe options they’re offering and how they are following guidelines.
From subtle shades to extravagant hues, we’ve got all of the hair color styles that will be biggest in 2021. Select your favorite ones and visit a salon or put your gloves on at home soon. 2021 is your year!
Bronzy Brunette For The Win
Who doesn’t love chocolate brown color? However, it can get pretty one-dimensional to stick to just dark browns. If you’re looking to add some fun, you can add some highlights to your brown dyed hair. Bronze streaks will look great with the brown and will be a refreshing change.
Face-Framing Streaks Are Trendy AF
Also known as e-girl streaks and money-piece highlights, these gorgeous face-framing streaks have gone viral on social media. Not only is it super cute and trendy, but it’s also easy to rock this hair as it does not require coloring all of your hair. Go for a bright color in the front ( or two, if you’re feeling Bella Hadid) and a solid color for the rest of your hair.
Nothing as Natural as Brown Balayage
Everyone is going crazy over Balayage online, and we can see why. Strawberry, Blonde, or Caramel, it’s everywhere. Our pick for 2021 is the warm shade of brown Balayage. It’s natural and subtly gorgeous, a soft ombre that fades from dark chocolate to lighter brown shades flawlessly.
Warm Almond and Nutty Edges
The warm months of 2021 will see many nutty colors being blended into brunette: almond, chestnut, and cashew. These beautiful colors blend very well with a natural brown to create a spring vibe that nothing else can match.
Sunlit Honey Blonde on a Beach
This color is a slightly grown-up version of the beach blonde curls we’ve grown up with. Hues like honey and gold add a warm and multi-dimensional twist to the blonde and create a warm and beachy look everyone will love.
Pop That Silver Champagne
Having the best of both worlds is now possible. You have the trending hair color Silver Champagne to thank. With excellent blonde color and warm accents, it’s a perfect combination of ash blonde and pearly and translucent silvers. You need to pour a glass of it!
Copper Sunset Has Our Hearts
Many pastels have been inspired by nature and gotten big in the hair color world as we know it. However, not many bold colors come under that category. Copper Sunset in the perfect color that brings the bold and the natural together, and how!
All Eyes For Highlighted Curls
Have a curl pattern you can’t show off enough? If yes, this is just the right hair color trend for you. The color on your curls diverts all attention to your curls and helps them stand out. However, do not try this by yourself, as it may alter your curl pattern. It’s best to seek a professional.
Pastel Pink is So Pretty!
2020 saw its fair share of strangely pretty and out-there hair colors, pink being one of the most popular ones. Patel pink is a toned-down version that is softer yet as bright and fun and unnatural as pink. Bring out your quirky and fun side this year by making this choice!
Amethyst Gives Us Heart Eyes
If you feel daring enough for fun and quirky shades, you have to think beyond pink. Amethyst is a quirky hair color for those of you who wish to stand out. It’s a color that stands for duality: it represents strength and looks so soft and kawaii to the eyes. The color looks good on all complexions but best on slightly darker skin.
