Metallics and blondes 


2020 threw a wrench-ball in people’s access to many activities. Many women grew their hair out and let their highlights or color go with it at the start of the year. When they did revisit the salonwe’ve noticed a lot of clients opting to play up their natural color.  


Enter metallics. A fun way to cover up grays, but still keep it “natural” is to go silver.  


Expect to see a lot of blonde hair color trends as well. Chunky blonde highlights or balayage as well as an all-over platinum blonde.

Color Reinvented 


The hair color trends of 2020 did not get a chance to shine or be shown. Expect to see some of the same trending colors of 2020, but with a twist. 


The Money Piece 2.0 


This is a low maintenance, face-framing highlight around the front hairline made via the balayage technique. It’s a very versatile look.  


Plus, this trend is a less intimidating option than other hair color trends that feature brighter color choicesThe Money Piece simply adds a splash of color around the face allowing for a face-framing highlight. If you are not committed yet to dying your entire hair but want to play with new shades this is the perfect solution.  



For those wanting to be a bit more progressive, 

 try using vivid colors to your highlight
