The Top Hair Trends of 2021

Top Hair Trends to Look Out For in 2021 at Blonde Envy by ZIGZAG Hair Salons in Milton Keynes and Towcester

2021 may not have started in the way that we’d hoped, but Lockdown is probably the perfect time to start planning a fresh new look for when we re-open our hair salons in Milton Keynes and Towcester!

At the Blonde Envy by ZIGZAG salons, all of our stylists are highly trained and up-to-date with the very latest hair trends and can find the perfect cut and colour for you. 

Here are some of our favourite ideas for inspiration for your post-lockdown locks…

The Shag Haircut

Retro hair trends are all over the fashion magazines and social media this year. We predict that the shag hairstyle will make a huge impact this year, as it is low maintenance when cut well and compliments most face shapes. Shag haircuts are a great way to add texture, volume, and depth to your style. The modern shag cut works on long hair, curly hair and you can even mix a shag cut with a cute pixie style for complete cool girl vibes. 

Shadow Roots – Low Maintenance Hair Colour

One of the most requested hair colour trends of the year will no doubt be “shadow roots”. Shadow roots as a colour trends involves your roots creating a contrast against the rest of your strands with a gradual fade into each colour.  One major perk of the look? It’s incredibly low maintenance, since exposed roots are purposeful – perfect if you can’t get to the salon. 

Curtain Bangs For 2021

Another retro hairstyle trend that will make a big bang this year is the curtain fringe (or bangs) style. We think that this year will be heavy with ’70s inspired fashions and curtain bangs certainly are one that stands out for us. You Blonde Envy stylist will be able to create the perfect shape of curtain bangs to flatter your face shape and hair type, this style even works with curly hair and looks sensational paired with the shag haircut. 

The French Bob – Ooh La La!

The French bob will also be a must-try hair trend this year, taking inspiration from our chic cousins across the channel.  The style is cut right above the chin, skimming the lips and paired with added fringe. This is the perfect style for anyone who wants low-maintenance styling and a structured shape, as it actually looks better air dried with a bit of scrunching!

Red Hair Fit For a Queen

As a nod to Anya Taylor Joy’s red hair in The Queen’s Gambit, we think bold red hair colours will be huge this year. This sophisticated colour is deeper than a copper red but lighter than auburn. Red hair does require maintenance so visit us for colour brightening services and ask your Blonde Envy expert colourist for the best products to keep your red hair vibrant between visits.
