Hair trends for 2021
Babylights are reminiscent of the soft, sunkissed strands that graced your hair as a child. To achieve this look, pair finely woven highlights with handpainted pieces for a dimensional, yet subtle glow around the face and ends.
As the name may infer, Babylights have the ability to add a hint of youth to your client’s overall appearance.“Never doubt the power of a few face framing highlights.” Babylights are particularly low maintenance, and can be done on all hair types, making it a great choice for almost anyone who sits in your chair.
The key with this hair color trend is to find the delicate balance between placement and natural color graduation. Unlike your ombré technique, bold and high contrasting root to end colors with lines of demarcation are not the goal.
We recommend microhighlighting in small sections where you need control (face + crown), and using your baylayage technique through the mids and ends to keep the final look as natural looking as possible.
PRO TIP: Be sure your lighter pieces aren’t lifted too high – a safe rule of the thumb is to make your highlights about 2 shades lighter than your base color.
Balayage is a French word that means to sweep. It is a hair colour technique that allows for a sunkissed very natural look. Its ultimate goal is to create the gold reflects that the sun gives naturally to the hair in summer. More natural than a full head of colour, balayage is the ideal choice when you want something subtle, boost the natural reflects, and give a new dimension to your hair. Balayage gives a gorgeous healthy looking finish that looks glossy and expensive, which can be worn subtle or bold, whatever you want; it’s all about the application.
This timeless technique is the most popular hair colour requested in salons today. Its popularity comes from the fact that it is extremely low maintenance. You can look fashionable and feel good without having to run to the salon every few weeks. It is also seen everywhere, year after year, on the catwalk and red carpet.
Sioban Jones, Colour ambassador at Headmasters says : “ I love balayage as it enables me to place colour more visually. Placing colour visually means that each and every client can receive a bespoke colour completely tailor made for them. It’s great for giving a multitonal effect whilst still looking natural, high shine and low maintenance .”

Rose gold isn’t just for blondes, though lightening powder is usually required!
These gorgeous pinkish copper tones can be accomplished on almost all hair colors. However, in order to achieve this highly sought after hair color trend, you will need to pre-lighten or begin depositing on levels 8 and higher.
PRO TIP: For longer lasting rose gold hues, try using the gold-yellow pigment present after lifting hair to a level 8 or 9. By not lifting past a level 9, pH and protein levels stay in tact, allowing for a longer lasting color service.
