The Most Popular Hair Trends of 2021
From mullets to money pieces, we’ve had our fair share of throwbacks and new styles in the mix. But which client trends have been the experts’ favourite so far?
1 LIVED-IN BLONDES“Many clients have fallen in love with the lockdown roots and are now moving away from scalp bleach – exaggerated roots with a soft baby light gives the client a natural, low maintenance colour while maintaining a fresh and blonde feel,” says hairdresser Heffy Wheeler, of Hx Hair, Rugeley.
2 THE CURLY SHAGWhile the name may be questionable at first glance, this one has been a staple of 2021 and is still going strong as Brooke Evans, owner of BE Ironbridge, gives this style the crown. “the Curly Shag is my absolute favourite – with the use of natural colour going through to make the ultimate beach vibe,” says Brooke.
3 THE SHULLIT“I’m loving the Shullit –a soft, shaggy almost grown out mullet, great for clients who want a shorter style with soft feminine texture,” explains Emma Simmons, owner of Salon 54.

VTCT Tackles Lack of Diverse Representation in Stock Imagery with New Photoshoot
VTCT has created its own hair and beauty imagery after finding stock images lacking enough diversity to educate learners adequately. VTCT hair and beauty experts travelled to Francesco Group, Birmingham, to shoot photos that reflect the behaviours of a range of hair types from poker straight to wavy, coily hair.
VTCT quality lead and industry expert, Sonia Robinson, said: “while there are images of curly hair available, they do not adequately reflect all the complexities of it. We needed to capture how uniquely hair behaves and looks when wet, styled, dry, and everything in between."
This comes after VTCT announced that they are set to become the first awarding body to embed black hair and skin in their core curriculum. This is part of their roadmap to leading the industry in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. The latest National Occupation Standards (NOS) were updated to include Afro and textured hair in June.
