A new year means a whole host of exciting new hairstyles, and so far, 2021 has certainly delivered in this department. But what about trends in 2021 hair color? Last year’s lockdown saw many celebrities trying something new with their hair, and it seems like that’s a trend that’s set to continue this year, too.
This is great news, as some of the most iconic looks are born out of experimentation. If you’re looking for inspiration for your next color switch, look no further. Read on to find out some of the biggest and best hair color trends we’ll be seeing in 2021.
From Kylie to Kendal to Kim and more recently, Dua Lipa and Zoe Kravitz, the past few years have seen tons of famous faces ditching their darker locks for a bright blonde color. Showing that this trend is still going strong in 2021, Billie Eilish recently unveiled her unexpected and amazing transformation from green and black to angelic blonde. It takes time and patience to get to bleach blonde, but the results are often so stunning, it’s worth the effort.
From Bella Hadid to Beyonce, it seems like everyone has tried this Y2K-inspired style. Requesting two bold streaks to frame your face will be a big trend for 2021. This is a look that can be subtle, with more natural colors, or attention-grabbing with bright blonde or pink.
One tip? Make sure you have a hairstylist do it for you. Try this trend at home and you could risk ending up looking more stuck in the past than retro chic.
Red Red Red
Not since Rihanna debuted her fire engine red locks back in 2010 has the color red enjoyed such popularity on heads across the country. The new color du jour may be closer to maroon than the vivid shade Rih once rocked, but it’s no less eye-catching. SZA and Lizzo are two stars who have opted for this look in recent months.
Pink has fallen in and out of favor several times over the years, but we’re pleased to say it’s back, and it’s never looked better. This year’s version is softer than the bright hot pink that once ruled supreme, instead, taking on a more bubblegum, even pastel shade. This is an impactful look, but remember that if you do decide to go for it, it requires two things: commitment and regular maintenance.
Remembering Your Roots
Finally, we have the beachy, relaxed, and effortlessly cool dark roots light hair combo. What may have once looked like a trip to the salon was needed is now an intentional style that many are asking for. This look can, of course, be achieved naturally by growing out a light color in the hair, but a talented stylist will be able to recreate this look for you just as well.
