10 Spring 2021 Hair Trends to Watch Out For

Give your look a fresh SS21 Update by trying out one (or more) of these key spring hair trends. Welcome back— rounded bangs, pigtails and bubble ponytails.

Spring has sprung, and as we shed the many layers of winter and step out into the sunshine reinvigorated, there is no time as opportune as the present to reinvent our look. Though it is a universally acknowledged fact the 2020 s*cked, it did leave us with all the time in the world to reinvent our hair and makeup looks and experiment during the lockdown. And with fashion still being consumed virtually (mostly) the world over, hair and makeup styles are playing a key role in communicating a designer's vision and inspiration for the new season. We sieved through some of the biggest hair trends for spring 2021 and put together our list of some key looks for you to try.

Spring 2021 hair trends

1. A Blunt Bob

This fresh take on a stylish summer bob is shaping up to be a celebrity favourite (we see what you did there, Kim K), shows off your best features and makes you look uber-stylish without even trying.

2. Pigtails

This 90's, Baby Spice-inspired style is back. Young, playful and stylish, wear yours at the nape of the neck for a more natural style like Sara Ali Khan's, or up high for a more polished look.

3. Lavender Hair

Pastel hair has been trending for a while now, and the colour for SS21 is an oh-so-pretty lavender hue. Pro Tip: If opting for a pastel hair colour, add glossy hair care products to your routine to up the shine.

4. Rounded Bangs

Bangs that are slightly shorter towards the centre of your face and longer on the ends frame the face perfectly and will be having quite a moment this year.

5.A Bubble Ponytail

All you need is a bunch of grippy hair-ties and a deft hand to recreate this spring 2021 hair trend. Pro tip: Smooth on a light hair-serum or oil to tame flyaways.

6. Sleek Curls

Channel old-Hollywood vibes with glamorous, glossy curls. Add the right products to enhance shine and hold into place with a soft-setting hairspray.

7. A Braided-Back Bun

Pull back your braids into a sleek, low bun for a look that is fresh, updated and lets your makeup and accessories sing.

8. A Slicked-Back, High Ponytail

One of the smartest styles to be trending this spring, create this polished look by flat-ironing your hair, applying a light gel or taming product and pulling it back into a neat, high ponytail. Cover your hair-tie with a section of hair to finish the look.

9. Razor-Sharp Ends

Crisp, angled ends such as Kareena Kapoor Khan's add fuss-free drama to any hairstyle, and are a modern and stylish look to try this spring.

10. Bun(S) With Face-Framing Tendrils

Think of this spring 2021 hair trend as a messier version of a French twist. First, roll up your hair and secure it in place. Pull out a few face-framing tendrils and hit them with a curling iron to finish things off. Hair trend inputs: Cosmopoliton.com
