For many, 2020 was the year we came to truly appreciate the worth of a good hairdresser. Lockdown saw us desperately improvising at home, leading to an array of questionable cuts and bodged box colours. Thankfully, hair salons are now back in business, transforming the nation’s overgrown roots and split ends into glamorous styles much more befitting the party season. OK, so there might not actually be any parties to go to this Christmas, but if this year has taught us anything, it’s that a little pampering can go a long way in lifting the spirits when times are tough. With that in mind, we asked James Hoffman, senior stylist and head of education at the award-winning hair salon group, Chapter One Hair Spa, what are the key trends to look out for in 2021.
