Meet the trending techniques and tones of the season.
While the idea of ‘new year, new you’ is somewhat trite these days (especially considering that 2021 is basically 2020, part two), there’s still something to be said for power of the humble hair colour change.
It’s arguably even more pronounced in summer, when the desire to be one’s best, most shiny self is inexplicably strong (less hiding-under-the-duvet, more out-pouring-rosé, we suppose). And while we’ve essentially unsubscribed from the idea that there are set ‘summer hair colours’ and ‘winter hair colours’, we do get a certain level of joy from seeing the emerging trends of the season before selecting a ‘New Hue, New You’ shade to commit to.
So, to help you switch up your shade this season, we consulted some of Australia’s leading colourists and hairdressers for their picks of the top summer hair colour trends of 2021.
From the trending takes on highlights, to this season’s leading iterations of red, brunette and blonde, keep scrolling (and prepare to screenshot) the reigning shades of the season.
