LOW MAINTENANCE HAIR TREND SUMMER 2021
Here we are in summer 2021, and although it has already been as full of unexpected twists and turns as its predecessor, we're still optimistically planning to make the most of this summer. We've already started mentally assembling fancy outfits for backdated weddings and have even been predicting the nail colours, new boot styles, and jeans types that will be big news over the next few months. But with so much uncertainty still swirling around, there's one question that lingers at the back of our minds: What will the defining hair trends of 2021 actually be?
Back in March last year, when hairdressers across the country were forced to close their doors, no one could foresee the impact it would have on our tresses. Those who couldn't bear the thought of grown-out roots had little option but to reacquaint themselves with at-home box dye, while others with shorter hair or fringes had to become nimble with a pair of hairdressing scissors pretty quickly.
When it comes to colour, you don't want something that requires too much precision, Something that has become a bit of a signature of ours is a softer, natural balayage. With the disturbance of COVID and salons shutting for months on end, people are stepping away from that fresh, highlighted look that is quite high-maintenance and is tricky to maintain well at home without your colourist.
SHORT, HAIR CUTS
After surviving one lockdown, we finding many of our clients are looking to restyle their grown-out styles and are instead looking for short, tapered cuts, either in their natural form or relaxed, These looks are timeless, chic, and easy to style. Opt for length at the crown, keeping things shorter at the sides.
CHOPPY LOBS & BOBS
After the last lockdown more people start to look for an easy-to-maintain style. A lot of our clients have been requesting the effortless, undone bob. I think that this will continue to be popular going into 2022, as it’s quite a relaxed, messy style, meaning that when it grows out it will still look effortlessly chic.Shoulder-length bobs will be popular: the shag, the blunt textured bob, the cheekbone-skimming bob. Many of our clients are asking me about low-maintenance, choppy, and unstructured styles.
Bobs and lobs might be proving popular, but long hair is arguably less demanding. Spiral perms—like long layered, wavy cuts is a look that stands the test of time. Layers are key, as you won't have to come into the salon all that often to get them freshened up. Blunt, one-length styles require a bit more maintenance, so I'd advise going messier with the finish."
