Whether you’re looking for a hair color update or a completely new change, 2021 is starting with some great hair color trends that fit any personality. Whether you want a new shade to bring a little interest into your life, a new highlight to boost your spirits, or just something that’s a little less maintenance, these hair color trends have something for everyone.
Honey Blonde with Dark Roots
Everyone is agreeing that 2021 is the year of the grown-out dye job. Most clients are looking for a look that will grow out with low maintenance and little touch up of their roots. With this honey blonde, the ends are lighter and the contrast lessens as you go to the middle and then to the darker roots. By contrasting from dark on top to light on the bottom, and starting with a slightly grown-out style, you’ll have a gorgeous warm blonde tone that will grow out nicely.
If you’re a blonde and looking to go a little darker during this season, this mushroom blonde shade is a mix between a light brunette and a dirty blonde. It’s called this because it looks like the underside of a mushroom, and this color includes many shades including ash-grey, light brown, and beige. It shows off a multi-tonal hair color that works for both blondes trying to darken their hair or deep brunettes wanting to go lighter to a subtle blonde.
Sandy Tropez, also known as a winter bronde, is a stunning blend of both ash and gold. By mixing mid-lights and highlights, a multi-dimensional shade of cool beige tones and warm sandy hues complement each other. You’ll feel like you’re back at the beach with the warm sun on your face.
Remember the chunky highlights of the past? They are making a comeback! Chunky highlights range from one to two inches wide, creating a stark contrast against your natural hair color. The beauty of these chunky highlights is that you can choose a natural hue lighter than your hair color or go all out with daring primary or sassy pastel colors.
Speaking of pastel – this year pastel colors, especially soft pink, are still going strong. We are seeing these pastel colors being incorporated into a balayage to give off funky and fun vibes. Your stylist at Parisian Day Spa can help you determine the steps needed to help you achieve this look. Starting with a blonde base will help the pastel hues show easier, but if you have a darker blonde base or light brown base and don’t want to change your all-over color, you can also opt for vivid hues to really stand out.
Get back to basics with this sweet and subtle hair color. Most brunettes are embracing their dark hair this season and proving that brown can be as sexy as any other color. Many brunettes are richening up the base and then having caramel and maple tones added in for a deeper dimension. The great thing about chocolate brown is that you don’t have to be a natural brunette to pull it off, and it can be cooled down or warmed up to complement your features.
This striking shade of red became popular thanks to The Queen’s Gambit, and it’s still trending high. Lighter than auburn but deeper than copper, this is a truly chic color. Touch-ups will definitely need to be done every four to six weeks to keep this color vibrant, but the payoff is worth it! You will definitely want to ask your stylist about color-safe products to take home to use in-between touch-ups. Color Wow Color Security Shampoo and Conditioner would be a good choice.
This is a color that never goes out of style. It’s sophisticated, glossy, and easy to get done. We will see single-process colors like this jet black more and more in 2021 since they are options that won’t make you get into the salon quite as often. Variations to this are subtle highlights in plum or chestnut to offset the jet black in shades that can easily be outgrown. Want to add even more shine to your glossy black? Try Color Wow’s new Extra Mist-ical Shine Spray to really stand out in the crowd.
