The Top Hair Trends For 2021

The Top Hair Trends For 2021

Top Hair Trends to Look Out For in 2021 at Blank Canvas Hair Co., Downtown Kelowna

As we approached January last year, we were (not so secretly) thinking, ‘OMG how is it 2020?’. But after the year we’ve just had, we can’t help but yell ‘Bring on 2021!’…  albeit through our masks and physically distanced. Luckily, there’s a whole host of new hairstyles and hair trends just waiting to be experimented with this year.

Our stylists at Blank Canvas Hair Co. are highly trained and up-to-date with the latest hair trends and we welcome you to discuss with you on an exciting, flattering new look. Here are some of our favourite ideas for inspiration for your 2021 locks...


The Shag 

Low maintenance hair is the key this year, which is no surprise after the last year, therefore the SHAG will be very popular in 2021. Retro hair trends are all over the fashion magazines and social media this year.  The SHAG, from short to longer versions, will be the most asked fort haircut and make a huge impact in 2021, as it is low maintenance  and will flatter most face shapes.

The SHAG is a great way to add texture, volume, and movement to your style and works on most hair lengths and types. 


Sleek Bob

The Sleek Bob is timeless and today with the amazing styling products available, you can vary your look to always  keep it looking fresh.

Add interest to your sleek bob by adding texture, such as scrunching with mousse or  add volume to fine or very thin hair with a texturing spray. The BOB is perfect for daytime or an evening look as it doesn't need to be too structured and will still look chic.  


Naturally Hydrated Curls 

If you’re blessed with naturally curly hair, it’s time to embrace a more carefree and natural look in 2021 and make the most of your hair’s natural texture.

To nourish your curly hair, tame frizz and create definition to your curls, your Blank Canvas Hair Co. stylist can recommend treatments and professional home hair care products that will infuse moisture into your hair and give you swoon worthy curls that are easy to maintain at home, such as the SACHAJUAN CURL Shampoo, Conditioner and CURL Treatment.


Contrasting Hair Colour

We have a wide range of shades available in our downtown Kelowna salon that it can be difficult to choose just one colour, so why not choose a multi-tone look? This trend allows you to have a customized hair colour combination to flatter you and your needs – simply talk to your Blank Canvas colour expert on your next visit. 

A popular choice  is to add a beautiful balayage or  add hidden panels of colour. Add a colour that compliments your existing hair colour or make a statement with a dramatic fashion hair colour!


Let’s Talk Blondes

Get ready for the HOLIDAY hair colour... even if it's a staycation!

Those of you who want a healthy beach blonde with bouncing lightness, the key is to create light reflecting hair colour - do this by asking for a slightly warmer toner/gloss at your next appointment, or even invest in our favourite Kérastase Blond Absolu Cicaflash! If you’re reading this article, then you may have already heard of Blond Absolu, one of our Ultimate Hair Care Heroes from Kérastase. Well, for all fans of the Absolu look, we are thrilled to be able to let you know that there’s a new expansion to the range! Featuring Cica, the “wonder ingredient” also known as Centella Asiatica, Gotu Kola, Indian Pennywort or our personal favourite, Tiger Grass, these products have been specially formulated for fragile hair post lightening. 


Red Hair Fit For a Queen

Bold red hair colour will be huge this year. The exact colour we are choosing is deeper than a copper red but lighter than auburn. Red hair does require regular maintenance to keep it fresh so visit us for colour brightening services and ask your Blank Canvas Expert Colourist for the best products to keep your red hair vibrant between visits.  


Who’s ready for 2021 along with warmer weather and fresh new cut and colour? We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to share these  gorgeous new hair trends with you. Tell us—which is your fave?
