Top Hair Trends For 2021

Top Hair Trends to Look Out For in 2021 at Smith and Smith Hair Salon in Loughborough

Well, we may not have the start to 2021 that we’d all been hoping for, but Lockdown is probably the perfect time to start planning a fresh new look for when we re-open our Loughborough hair salon!

At Smith and Smith Hair Salon all our stylists are highly trained and up-to-date with the very latest hair trends.  We’re proud to be a Paul Mitchell Signature Salon and would be happy to advise you on a flattering and wearable new look. 

Here are some of our favourite ideas for inspiration for your post-lockdown locks…

Textured Bobs and Lobs

Low maintenance hair is set to be a huge trend for 2021, which means that the Blunt Bob is also set to be a high fashion look this year.  It’s a perennial favourite which always looks great, although it can take a lot of maintenance to keep it looking smooth and sleek.

An alternative to the sleek bob is to create texture in your hair by adding layers and waves. Adding texture, such as scrunching with mousse, to your look is a fabulous way to add volume to fine or very thin hair.

If you don’t want to go too short, a long bob cut to the collarbone is on-trend and flatters all face shapes. 

Striking Pixie Cuts

Short hair is a another trend we saw emerging in Summer 2020, with many clients getting rid their over-grow lockdown locks for a low maintenance pixie style.  

A pixie cut can be incredibly versatile, you can create slicked back or tousled looks, short pixie hairstyles for curly hair, asymmetrical chops or even a funky “fauxhawk” style. Pixie haircuts with a fringe are currently very popular.

This trend looks set to continue into 2021 as more women embrace shorter, easier to manage hairdos. Are you brave enough for the big chop?

Nourished Natural Curls

If you’re blessed with naturally curly hair, multi textured or afro tresses, it’s time to embrace a natural, more fuss-free look in 2021 and make the most of your hair’s natural texture.

To nourish your hair, tame frizz and create structure in your spirals, your Smith and Smith stylist can recommend professional home hair care products that will infuse moisture into your hair and give you gloriously gorgeous curls. 

Rosy Brown Hair Colours

Brunette hair can sometimes be overlooked in hair colour trends, or the advice is to add blonde, but your choice doesn’t have to be limited to flat brown or blonde! This year the brunette colour trends are all about enhancing those warms tones and celebrating the dark side!

Warm rosy shades have become a popular way to brighten up your natural brunette hair colour. Rosy tones for brunettes are also a great alternative to the popular Rose Gold usually reserved for blondes.

Two Tone Hair Colours

It can be so difficult to choose an all over colour from the wide range of shades we have available, so why not choose a two-tone look?  This trendy look means you can go for a customised hair colour combination to flatter you and suit your personal style – simply speak to your Smith and Smith stylist.  

One popular example of two-tone colours is adding a beautiful balayage or ombre hair colours. You can add a colour that compliments your existing hair colour or make a statement with a dramatic fashion shade!
