Predicted Hair and Beauty Trends 2021

After a rough 2020, we are more than ready to welcome the new decade and all that it has to offer. Our list of predicted hair and beauty trends for 2021 will have you prepped and ready to take on the year in true style.

1. Fresh Faces and Natural Glow 
2021 is the time to step up your skincare routine as fresh faces and glowy skin are in. Imagine flawless, dewy skin and glossy lips – fresh as a Daisy! This means lots of hydrating products and minimal make-up, maybe invest in a lash lift and tint for that a la naturale look.

2. Low-Maintenance Hair Cuts
If 2020 has taught us anything, it is how to deal without our beloved hairdressers. Regrowth, greys, split ends, overgrown hair, you name it; these things have made us appreciate a low maintenance hair-do so much more and this will carry out into 2021. Think balayage, center parts, shoulder-length hair, effortless undone bobs, or maybe you will just rock a ponytail every day (nothing wrong with that!).


3. Sustainability 
For years we have become increasingly aware of the world around us and the planet on which we live, from using our keep cups to get coffee, cutting out single-use plastics, and reducing our overall waste to protect our beautiful home. This concept has also influenced the products we consume with Organic, Vegan, Natural and Sustainable hair, and beauty products in high demand.

This year we anticipate that more brands will incorporate eco-friendly practices into their company and products to reflect this movement. If you haven’t already it is time to add some amazing sustainable products to your beauty repertoire. 

We have loads of sustainable brands available to shop on our website, to name a few; Peggy Sue, Glow By Beca, Firsthand, Davroe, Clever Curl, Everescents. Melissa Allen Mood Essentials and more. 

4. Multi-Purpose Products 
Gone are the days of a 13-step skincare routine, 2021 is the year of simplifying your regime and using products that are effective and serve more than one purpose. I mean who doesn’t love a bit of multi-tasking? (This is a rhetorical question because let’s be honest, we all love it.) Introduce products into your life like lip and cheek tints, oils for your face and body, moisturisers and foundations with SPF, serums with the ingredients you need – you get the gist!
5. Bangs 
2020 saw a lot of DIY lockdown bangs and this is not the trend we are endorsing. This look requires effort, blow-drying, and round brushes, but boy does it look good! There are different variations to suit any face shape or hair type, some we are loving for 2021 are; curtain bangs, a wispy fringe, long retro bangs, classic fringe, and blunt bangs. If you have been thinking about it, 2021 is your year – go to your hairdresser and get on the trend!


Enjoy, love the Hair Gang Team xo
