Time to explore a new side of you with hairstyles for 2021. From air dry hair cuts that refresh your quarantine look to colors that keep in pace with your lofty goals, we think this year holds a lot of promise. With the right tools, it can even be downright inspired. Check out our quick list of top cuts, colors and styles you need to try now.
Expect long hair to reign supreme all this year. A low-maintenance hairstyle perfect for your grown-out quarantine locks, all you’ll need is the length and strategically placed layers to add body and dimension. But what’s most important is having strong hair that won’t break easily.
Long hair especially when wet can really pull at the strands, so make sure your hair is cared for with a shampoo, mask and serum set that can protect you from root to tip. Kérastase Genesis Dual Anti-Fall Action Ritual (Thick Hair), ₱ 5,700, protects against multiple causes of hair fall including fiber breakage.
An ash-blonde hairstyle with lived-in roots, it’s a delicious style that’s easier to maintain than a fully bleached head of hair. Hand-painted like a balayage it should gradually progress from a darker shade (possibly your natural hair color) light blond or ash blond color.
With any blonde based hair color, it’s best to have a purple shampoo at the ready and can keep unwanted yellow tones at bay. A regular treatment using L'Oréal Professionnel Anti-Brass Shampoo & Conidtioner Duo, ₱ 1,570, should do the trick. Best of all, the set includes a purple toning cleansing shampoo and a moisturizing conditioner all created to improve the quality of bleached hair. Shop now and get a FREE 100 ML Silver conditioner.

Sleek Extreme Side Part
From New York to Paris, Spring-Summer runways were all about wet looks and extreme side parts. For this style to work, you’ll need smooth sleek hair that lays almost flat against the scalp, but leaving the lengths and ends to your preferred texture. It’s perfect for framing your face, plus it’s easy to maintain.
Achieving smooth locks requires balance, on one end healthy amounts of moisture, on the other, body and fullness. Get the best of both with, Davines LOVE Shampoo: Lovely Smoothing Shampoo for Coarse or Frizzy Hair, ₱ 1,090. A soft and creamy foam, it’s designed to gently cleanse frizzy hair and smoothens it to easily style hair. Add Davines LOVE Hair Smoother: Lovely Taming Smoother for Coarse or Frizzy Hair, ₱1,350, a leave-on conditioner, for lightweight all-day frizz control.
Once you’ve done your prep work, style your hair with hairspray or gel. We recommend Bed Head by TIGI Hard Head Hairspray: Hard Hold Hairspray, ₱ 910. Just a small amount goes a long way to keeping the side part in place.
No time to spend on styling? This 2021, choose a fuss-free air-dried cut. Go for invisible layers that work with your natural texture and type/quality of your hair. Plus if you’re limiting your trips to the salon as a pandemic precaution, then this cut should grow well over time.
Test the hair in the salon by making sure to check how your hair looks at about 90% dry. In this way, you know how it looks without a professional blow drying it. Plus, maintain your natural hair like a pro by using an all-around smoothening shampoo for all hair types like Lakme K.Therapy Bio-Argan Shampoo, Mask & Oil. It keeps hair moisturized without a greasy effect and prevents the hair from losing elasticity and breaking.

A brunette hairstyle pre-lightened to add a kiss of rose, the color can be done as a highlight on the hair or as a balayage across the lengths and ends. The hue when done right offers a deep almost raspberry or pastel tone.
Caring for colored hair requires more than just a regular sulfate-free shampoo. Make sure your hair color stays fresh with a pigmented conditioner like Evo Fabuloso Pro Customised Color Maintenance Conditioner, ₱ 1,280, for refreshed color tone.
