Spring and Summer are on the way! When it comes to the perfect hair colours for this upcoming season, we know exactly what to expect – bright and colourful hues with a surprising twist. Thomas Hill, director of TH1 Hair in the United Kingdom, has just released three of his hair colour predictions for Spring/Summer 2021.
The boldly painted roots we’ve seen last season were just the beginning of this trend. Glowing roots were featured on the runways of Charlotte Knowles, Gareth Pugh and Collina Strada—just to name a few. This look was popularized by celebrities like Billie Eilish, whose signature look features iconic slime green roots. This trend is expected to expand in 2021. Hill claims that for 2021 this trend was intensified to an all-over glow. Expect to see bright colours in future hairstylists’ looks! Clients may even request a muted version of this trend for everyday wear.
Back to Black
If we’ve learned anything from 2020, it’s to expect the unexpected. Usually, when it comes to spring and summer we opt-in for a lighter and brighter style update than what we’ve been sporting for the darker and colder month. This season, the usual easy-breezy colour palettes of spring and summer have become more muted. Major fashion houses like Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton and Dior have showcased dark and delicious hair colours in their recent runway shows. This inky black hair colour is flattering on many skin tones and will likely become a client favourite this season.
The more texture the better! Due to temporary salon closures all over the world, clients are becoming more comfortable with embracing their natural hair texture. Adding a pop of colour is a great way to accentuate the natural curl patterns of Euro and Afro hair. We’re expected to see pastel colours becoming a huge hit this forthcoming season for clients who are looking to enhance and showcase their curls. If your client isn’t the adventurous type, but would still like to accentuate their natural curls, try a golden blonde balayage placed far enough from the root to ensure it grows out well.
