2021 Summer Hair Trends
Jenna Lu, professional hairdresser, says the top hairstyle/cut for 2021 is medium to long hair, paired with feathered curtain bangs and layers. Shorter layers are coming back in style because the messy disheveled look is easy to accomplish on your own. Low-maintenance hair is what people ask her for when they come into the salon. She always suggests a balayage because it gives a softer grow out. The term “balayage” is of French origin, meaning “to sweep.” Compared to traditional foils, the stylist's hand paints the bleach onto the hair to give more of an organic and natural look.Credit photos: instagram.com/youarebecoming
As for colors, she notes that people aren't afraid to experiment with bolder colors now. In all of her 6 years behind the chair, she’s done the most vivids during 2020-2021. Pinks and purples were the go to colors and they still are, but she’s also had people ask for blues and greens now, which is so much fun! Tik Tok most definitely has encouraged this. A lot of her clients give her full creative freedom to do whatever too, and that's when she produces her greatest work. When her clients aren’t asking for balayages or vivids, they ask for ash brown. The earthy mushroom tone is also very popular right now. Ash brown compliments a lot of people’s skin tone, and it’s relatively pretty easy to achieve and keep up with.Credit photos: instagram.com/youarebecoming

High braids are perfect for summer. In fact, they are one of the best spring hairstyles too. The main thing is not to make it way too tight. Also, do not forget about teasing the roots and unbraided ends for more volume, otherwise you will look like a schoolgirl. The braid should be loose and not silky.
