While most of us were staying at home last year due to lockdown restrictions, we had to put our hair color dreams on hold. Eventhough we are already in the first quarter of 2021, it is still not too late to switch things up with brand new hair color. Changing the color of your hair is the easiest way to freshen up your look. As businesses are opening up, it is possible to book appointments with the hair salons and change your look.
When it comes to hair color trends for this year, the emphasis is on colors that reflect what has been happening in our lives today. Many are looking to lift up their spirits with a new shade or trying to make their lives easier with less maintenance and fuss-free styling. There is no shortage of cool color trends to try out. Experts are predicting that the hair color trend will be colors that grow out gracefully, chunky highlights and some rich hues. It is all about having fun as life starts to return to a bit of normalcy. However this does not mean that you have to dye your hair in bright pink. Rather, there are many unexpected takes on classic shades that are trending as well.
Reverse Ombre Hair
The classic ombre style look has a darker top that turns into a lighter shade at the bottom. Reverse ombre is the opposite of the classic ombre look. The bottom has a darker shade with the lighter shade on top. This is a warmer look that allows for smoother transitions. Reverse ombre works best on women with natural light-colored hair like blondes. It has a softer and a more polished style. This style is very versatile too and is possible to customize the shades of color that you can use. It works on different types of hair, no matter long, straight, short, curly, thin or wavy. Reverse ombre hair makes returning to your natural hair color a lot easier. All you have to do is dye the bottom section of your locks. You do not touch the section near the roots. The colored part of the hair will become less and less as your hair grows.
Subtle highlights are a fantastic way to refresh your look without venturing into drastic territory. Brown balayage gives the hair dimension and pop of colors. This style gives a nice, subtle sun-kissed look and works for everyone. Go for varying shades of brown placed throughout the hair for the most dimensional and natural look.
The latest early aughts style has made a comeback and it is the chunky highlights. This time they are back with a twist and look surprisingly chic. The version today is definitely more noticeable. Chunky highlights are fun and playful.
Face Framing Streaks
Two bright streaks framing the face was the rage last year and it is now back with a vengeance. Expect to see a creative take like Bella Hadid’s two-toned streak. This is an easy trend that is super fun and stylish. It does not require coloring most of your hair.
Terracotta Hair Colo
Terracotta color is set to be one of the hottest color trends in 2021. This hue adds warmth and dimension to the hair using a palette of 70s shades. It is a wearable color trend of this season.
Bright blue, hot pink or vibrant purple – 2021 will prove to be a colorful year. It is about bringing out one’s personality with hair color. Most people are experimenting with bold color whether from black to pink
