The Ultimate Guide to 2021 Hair Trends

It has been a while since most of us were sat in the hot seat in a salon, excited about touching up our colour or trying out a new ‘do. We are all looking forward to the day when we can book our long awaited hair appointments, but until then all we can do is plan our new comeback look for when we all re-enter society. These 2021 hair trends are definitely ones to take into consideration when looking for inspiration. From edgy to glamorous, whatever your preference, you’ll be sure to stand out with these styles.


The 70s Fringe/ Curtain Bangs

Big, bouncy and beautiful 70’s style is super trendy this year, (think long wavy locks and face-framing ‘curtain bangs’). The modern take on this vintage look is super elegant and glamorous with many pairing the trend with face framing highlights to really make your features pop. A longer fringe looks good either swept to the side of your face, or swept forward across your browbone and best of all requires far less maintenance than a regular or blunt cut fringe.

The ‘Wolf Cut’ or Shaggy Style

This style is perfect for those who like an edgier look and want to make a statement. Admittedly this is a very risky style to try cut yourself so probably best to wait until the hairdressers are open before reaching for the scissors! However you may get away with it more if you have a natural wave or curl to your hair. One thing is for sure, love or loathe, this grunge style is making a comeback.

Au’ Naturale

This ongoing trend is all about embracing your natural hair texture and type. The haircare industry is constantly growing and evolving which has led to a huge improvement in the range of haircare products for all hair types. From serums to shampoos, oils to masks, you can now achieve salon worthy locks at home and all within a reasonable budget.

Centre Parting

The most popular parting placement these days is the centre part. This look pairs perfectly with the 70s ‘curtain bangs’ mentioned earlier, as both help to achieve the clean, symmetrical and face-framing look that is popular at the moment. The trend particularly suits people with short and chic ‘bob’ haircuts, as showcased by Lauren Arthurs. 




Warm Tones

Ashy, cool tones have dominated styles over the past few years but for many women, the ashy look can often be too harsh for their skintone. For those of us with warmer undertones, this new hair “trend” featuring shades like espresso brown or bronde is not only a flattering option but also potentially requires less upkeep. If you do go down the warmer tone route, then take the opportunity to play with bold and rich coloured clothing or makeup to compliment the overall look.
