After three months of lockdown, the rush to hairdressing salons is currently great across the country. DIY failures are ironed out again, approaches are re-colored and cuts are freshened up. "Right now you should act with foresight and be more cautious when it comes to creative experiments," says Munich hair professional Thomas Kemper.
According to the expert, however, a trend is emerging: cuts and colors that often need to be freshened up - like bobs or pastel pinks - are now slipping down the popularity scale. "If you didn't go to the hairdresser's shortly before the lockdown, your hair has already grown for four or five months." Accordingly, the cut and color have almost grown out of it. And it should stay that way for now!
"Many tend to have longer hairstyles," says Kemper. Sharp changes are currently more the exception. It also makes sense: After all, who knows when the next lockdown is imminent. Fortunately, in this case, there is one or the other cool hairstyle with which we should survive the hairdressing-free time.
Sure: cuts with steps have to be trimmed again and again. However, they can grow out a bit with shoulder-length hair without looking too much like a transitional hairstyle. And finally, the layers also bring a lot of dynamism to an otherwise reserved hairstyle. If you like to handle straightening irons and the like, you can also put the layered hair in the limelight with large waves.
Curls in particular often require a great deal of attention. But even long, natural curls survive a lockdown and also look fantastically beautiful. With so much volume, it is also not noticeable if the tips are thinned out a bit or the cut is no longer quite as fresh.
A few tiers in the front strands are perfect for creating some cuts. But if it has grown out again, you can no longer see it - and the hair just looks long. If you want to dare to use a little color, you can try out highlights in a natural tone. It is best for the hairdresser to just set them in length so that a natural ombré look is created when waxing.
A good solution, which is currently becoming increasingly popular, is Rapunzel hair, i.e. ultra-long hair with which precious little is done. The hairstyle is ideal for lockdown, after all, it can simply grow, grow, grow. And everyone who wanted their hair really long also knows: at some point, it will stop growing on its own anyway.
