The most important trends for the new year can be read every year on international runways. And so for the year 2021 two types of hair color appear to be the main orientation: on the one hand, natural tones refined with color gloss and light reflections (like Chanel, MSGM, or Miu Miu) remain popular, on the other hand, strong Pop Art colors are allowed experimented (as with Alexander McQueen or Dries van Noten). The highlights and corresponding care essentials at a glance.
Espresso brown and ash blonde are among the most important hair colors for 2021, as here at MSGM Fall/Winter 2020/21
Anyone who has naturally ash-blonde hair no longer needs to spice it up with all-over colorations in “summer blonde”, “honey blonde” or “copper”. Instead, ashy blonde tones will be groomed to a high gloss in 2021 and brought to the ultimate radiance with cleverly set highlights around the face or lighter balayage tips.
Tip: For cool blonde tones, care series with a balancing violet component are recommended; Dull hair or split ends can be made more shiny and supple with a shine spray or some hair oil.

In 2021, dark hair will receive a soft make-over in espresso brown, so that it shows warm reflections in light and when moving, looks classy and at the same time fuller - and reminds us of the creamy play of colors of our favorite drink! Cut the tips regularly and add shine with rich hair masks and conditioners.
Tip: Redken's star colorist Josh Wood offers a whole range of products that reinforce color gloss and conceal the roots, even for very dark brown tones.

In contrast to the very natural trend hair colors, there will be partial colorations in 2021, which with approaches, lengths, and/or tips in bright colors such as pink, yellow, blue, or green are reminiscent of New York Pop Art and its famous artists, such as Andy Warhol or Roy Lichtenstein, recall. No wonder that well-known stylists are behind the look: Sam McKnight, for example, created the neon roots for Dries van Noten; Guido Palau is responsible for the colored strands at Alexander McQueen and also the pink lengths of Kaia Gerber.
Tip: The healthier and shinier the hair, the more intense the color effect. If necessary, add a tip fluid, hair oil, or shine spray.
