7 Hair Color Trends for 2021

We often see hair color trends making a comeback into the new year. The key is to not just look at what’s trending but rather to notice what’s trending and then choose a hair color that speaks to your unique personality. Here are just 7 of the hair color trends we are seeing for the new year, and our expert colorists at Martino Cartier are ready to give you a fresh new look.

Forever Blonde
Winter doesn’t have to mean toning down your blonde. Platinum is still trending, as well as warm honey blondes and rich strawberry blondes. Stay true to your blonde roots this winter with a multi-dimensional blend of warm honey tones with a blonde base, or enjoy a single-process shade of blonde that suits your skin tone. 

Rouge Red
Red never goes out of style, and this season is right on track for redheads to show off their colors. We are seeing rouge tones that are lighter than an auburn but darker than copper. The intensity of the shade is best with a single-process color, but you can add dimension and depth by adding highlights with copper, ginger, and cinnamon shades.

Toffee Balayage
Whether you have a natural dark-brown base or want to go chocolate brown with highlights, the trend this year is to show off your chocolate brown locks with golden toffee highlights. Toffee tones in a natural balayage give you the perfect combination to add warmth to your skin and brightening your face. 

Silvery Bliss
Since salons were closed, women were forced to either dye their hair at home or embrace their natural grays. Many have learned that silver can be beautiful at any age, and it’s definitely a trend that is here to stay as we start the new year. Our hair colorists can add highlights, lowlights, or give you an all-over silver color to blend in your natural greys to give you a beautiful all-over silver color. 

Single-Process Colors
If you were a teen or young adult in the 90’s, you know the one-dimensional colors were all the rage back then. Well, we are once again seeing a resurgence in the one-dimensional realm. Whether you are a blonde, redhead, or brunette, we have a rich single-process color that will give your hair uniformity while looking modern and fresh. If you want a shade that doesn’t need a lot of maintenance, stick to tones that are only one or two shades from your natural hair color so that the grow-out process is subtle. 

Chunky Highlights
Here is another blast from the past that is getting a new life as we enter 2021. While we’ve seen the subtle blending of balayage, which is still hot, chunky highlights around the face are making a comeback. Chunky highlights offer more noticeable highlights in tones that emphasize the jawbone and cheeks while increasing the vibrancy between your hair base and highlights. 

Cotton Candy Pink
As people were stuck at home, we saw a lot of experimentation with pastel colors. Thankfully, now that we are open, we can give you the right shade of cotton candy pink that you are longing for. This pastel color will be going strong into the next season, so if you’re ready to make a change and a hair color statement, we are ready!
