HAIR TRENDS THAT WILL TAKE OVER IN 2021
With a new year quickly approaching, you can expect more styles that are easy to achieve without the help of a pro, and celebrate natural, simple styles. Natural hairstyles are showing no sign of fading away, they are fashionable, fast and easy for people to do on their own at home, and can be styled in so many ways. As we look forward to a new year, simplicity is key in 2021.
THE TEXTURED NATURAL BOB
Textured waves quietly took over our Instagram feeds this past summer during lockdown, and you can definitely expect to catch a more simple version of this look taking off big time in 2021.
This natural look is quick and easy and will be a major hit as we approach spring and summer. Unlike the shaggy haircuts that have been all over social media as of late, this version of the style features a subtle bend with faint bangs as opposed to curly bangs that frame the entire face.
THE DIFFUSED CURL
Time to embrace those natural curls with added edge! Instead of reaching for the straighteners enhance natural curls with a diffuse dry! To enhance natural curls for a tousled look, section into 2 sections, top and base. Attach the diffuser and select low airflow setting. High airflow will be too strong for curls. When drying curls you can create more definition by twisting each curl before you dry it. Tilt from side to side cupping sections of your hair into the diffuser moving towards and away from the head. For extra volume flip your head upside down and focus on drying the roots, add a texturising spray for added oomph!
THE ELEGANT EASY BUN
A quick look to effortless style! An elegant bun is one of my favourite looks for girls on the move, it can be great dressed up for occasions or simply dressed down to head to the gym. An easy look to create at home, simply middle part the hair and tie your hair in to a low ponytail. Divide the ponytail into two sections and plait/twist round one another. Do not not let go of the ends when you finishing plaiting. Twist the hair around the base of your ponytail and secure the ends with kirby grips. Pull out a few strands at the front for a more effortless, natural look and spray a light mist of hairspray for hold.
