Believe it or not, 2020 was a big year for new and reborn hair trends. Around March, stylists faced a time where salons were closed and had no way of working with clients. This gave clients time to have quarantine haircuts and color jobs gone wrong. If 2020 has taught us anything, it's that hair trends change constantly and without the help of our stylist things may not come out exactly as planned. Today, we're going to talk about the top 5 hair trends of 2020.
#1 Shaggy cuts
The shag cut is coming back. Finding the inspiration from the 70's, the shag and mullet are coming back. As a stylist, I love the feathered bangs and layered look. However, the mullet depends on the person. Celebrities like Selena Gomez and Hillary Duff have been rocking the feathers bang. I am loving this trend and hope it continues in 2021.
#2 Block coloring
Coloring blocking has made a huge rise this year. This trend has been blowing up on social media sites such as Tik Tok and YouTube. Coloring blocking is a fun way to add a pop of color to your hair with dimensional results. You can add color or keep it blonde and natural. I recently had a guest come in for color blocking. It was so fun to do and by the end of the service, she loved on the blonde had strong money pieces in the front, but was only seen throughout the bottom. Do you think you could rock the block color? I love this trend, both stylish and low maintenance.
#3 The Bob
The bob started to blossom in the early 2000's. However, within the last year it has become a more popular trend. Bob's can be cut at any length and any angle. I absolutely love the bob hair cut, I've rocked it before and it is so fun to style. Bobs can be more blunt or shaggy with layers throughout. This look can go in many directions. The growing out processing can be a but difficult with the angle, but it's sheek and a cute modern haircut.
#4 Buzz cut
More and more women have started to embrace having the buzz cut. Over the past 2 years, the buzz cut has taken over in the fashion industry. Celebrities such as Lupita Nyong'o, Kate Hudson, and Halsey have been rocking the short cut. Shaving your hair is a big commitment, but for some people can be a liberating experience. If you do consider to follow this trend, keep in mind the grow out phases of your hair.
#5 Low maintenance blonde:
As I continue my experience behind the chair, I have noticed in 2020 that subtle balayage is one of the top trends. Balayage is a french word for hand painting. The lightener is hand painted onto the hair giving brightness, depth, flawless blend, and seamless out growth. The balayage technique can be adjusted per person. Balayage is a common technique these days and continues to gain popularity.
