After a month into 2021, we are sure you’re tired of hearing, “new year, new you.” However, if there was ever a year for a fresh start, it’s going to be the one that comes after 2020! A new look can provide you with a restored sense of confidence. But before you book that salon appointment, allow us to share some of the hottest trends so far of 2021. These are the styles that would be gracing the runways and red carpets (if they could). We’ve consulted with FHI Heat celebrity stylists and come up with 10 of the most fashionable styles for this coming year.
Toner is so last year. Gone are the days of the formerly sought after ashy look. 2021 is all about warm colors like pinks, oranges, and reds. We love the Velma vibes that this model is serving us, but you don’t have to go full Scooby-Doo color if that’s not your speed. Feel free to experiment with twilighting. Twilighting effortlessly blends low key color onto darker tresses for a nice subtle highlight. If you’re a brunette who does decide to bleach and color your entire head, please keep some heat protectant, like Be Protected Thermal Protecting Foam, on hand. Even the most seasoned stylists know that color can cause damage, so you’re going to want to protect those precious strands after something that drastic.
Remember when everyone was getting a pixie cut? Though we think that’s still a chic look, length is definitely more in for 2021. Serving as an ode to the hippie vibes of the 70s, a long mane gives you plenty to work with in terms of styling. We love adding a little texture. You can mimic the model in this photo and opt for braids, or you can grab a curler! When curling extra-long tresses, you’ll want to start your curl at your ears or below, keeping your crown straight. This will elongate your neck and highlight your cheekbones. You can then go back in and style your tendrils if you’ve got them.
The biggest comeback to hit 2021 hairstyles has got to be the curled ends. Celebs like Bella Hadid, Ariana Grande, Cardi B, and more have been seen showing off this look in music videos and photoshoots. The best part about this style is that it is so simple to create! All you need is a styler and a lightweight finisher. First, you’ll straighten the length of your hair. Get it as sleek as possible. Then, take that styler and twist your ends inwards. You can also curve the styler inwards as you straighten. Get your hands on an FHI Heat Platform Plus Curve Styler for this one, as most straighteners won’t allow you to both smooth and curl.
2020 was a rough year for salons and stylists because people were wary about going into small indoor spaces. There was one small blessing to come out of it though, and it’s shadowed roots. Shadowing the root is a technique that leaves a hint of your natural hair at your root and blends it into your new color. It’s a huge money saver because it means that you don’t need as many root touch-ups! You can see how that would also make it an ideal style to emerge out of 2020 as well.
The model in this photograph is giving us serious 90s Kate Moss flashbacks with her teased off-duty model hairstyle. Teased straight tresses are all about adding volume to the classic straightened look. You want it to look intentional but natural at the same time. It’s a delicate balance that the supermodels of the 90s did so flawlessly. Though it might look effortless, there is a touch of skill required to pull it off perfectly. If you’ve already got straight hair, don’t bother touching the styler. Instead, take a light brush, like the UNbrush, and gently tease your length, beginning at your crown. You can spritz your crown with High Altitude Root Lift Spray before you tease, and hairspray afterward!
