We are coming back

Did you know that one of the only times one changes their hair style is at the end of a bad relationship.  Well I don’t know about you but the team here at Garbo’s feel that’s just what we have come out of with Covid 19.

After the first lockdown 80% of you guys opted to keep your hair long as it was one of the only times that you had had the opportunity to let your locks grow, then your second appointment after lockdown you asked the team to cut your hair back to it’s original style.

So it’s time for that restyle

It’s time to shake things up in 2021, at least when it comes to hair. We spent most of 2020 skipping trims and doing root touch-ups in the privacy of your own home, so there’s no time like the present to finally experiment with your haircut, colour, or style. The best hair looks for 2021 are all about being bold and making changes (hopefully with the help of your Garbo’s salon experts).

If last year focused on natural texture and no-fuss hairstyles, 2021 is gearing up to be all that and then some. Ringing in a new year calls for fresh starts of all kinds, making it the perfect time for new hair trends to guide us straight to the salon.

We’re taking last year’s low-maintenance styling up a notch with statement-making cuts that do all the work and call back to decades past—only the fashionable ones, of course. If you’ve been wanting to make a chop, there are shaggy layers, blunt fringe, and retro styles just waiting to be shorn. (We’re talking modern updates on vintage bobs, bangs, and long cuts, too.)

Here are the trendy haircuts you’ll be seeing everywhere this year.

Colour for 2021

2020 was the year of cutting, styling and dying our own hair at home. Basically, we all took some chances during quarantine—whether they were regrettable or not only you can say. But one thing’s for sure, now that we’ve let our adventurous side out to play, we’re stepping into 2021 with more beauty confidence and curiosity. From ruby reds to pastel pink, here are the biggest hair colour trends for the new year.


Yup, you have The Queen’s Gambit to thank for this fiery pick. “Copper Ginger is one of the most attention-grabbing colours out there.” The red shade  incorporates a mix of subtle copper, auburn and blonde highlights, and it’s shiny finish complements all skin tones, especially people with fair skin.


This low maintenance style involves minimal bleach, so it’s a great way for those with dark hair to gently lighten things up. “Bronde Foliage is the perfect way to transition out of the dark times of 2020. You’ll get a gorgeous balance of colour by pairing delicate babylights and framing the face and roots with a stronger balayage.”  This look has a universal appeal since it works for most hair colours within the range of dark black to dark blonde.”


This is not your average all-black shade. While it might sound like the easiest colour to do, there’s actually an art to getting the right amount of shine and the perfect cool tone. There are actually multiple tones involved to get the right shine and movement without looking inky and solid.


Money pieces were big this year, and the team @ Garbo’s thinks the ‘90s trend is going to spill into January and beyond. Social media platforms like TikTok have many girls doing iconic looks from the late 90s and 2000s, such as the chunky highlights. We have learned to take from the past and give it a more modern take.” How to achieve this look? Simply focus on the strands right around the face (aka your moneymakers), but be sure to add a few more light strands throughout your whole head for an updated approach.
