My way of interpreting coming trends is to look at what’s popular now and what’s on its way out for the next season. I think that Spring-Summer 2021 hair fashion will reflect the ‘opposite of now’ and bring us some beautiful natural transitions.

Razor Cut Bob

There are certain basic looks that never seem to go out of style – they simply vary from year to year, and in some cases, decade to decade.  The Bob is a great example of a look that has been with us for decades, but is tremendously versatile in terms of length, shape, and texture.  For this season, we’ll be seeing lots of interior movement with more shattered thinner bottom with wispy ends. The razor cut Bob takes on longer layers and texture but less volume … the overall feeling is more light and airy for Spring.

I feel that the leading Shag trend as we know it is on its way out. The traditional Shag is transitioning from a solid shape into a more structured shape and not so wispy at the ends.

Beach Waves
Beach Waves

As for Beach Waves that have been popular for so long, they are here to stay! This look has evolved from more than a decade ago (started out with those barrel sausage curls of Jessica Simpson and then ‘relaxed’ over the years).  Of course, we always want to keep this in-demand look fresh and updated. The length can vary for the look of beach waves and it still looks good on people. For this season, I use a round brush for texture and volume but not as much curve … the overall look is more relaxed. I am also building in tons of layers throughout and create different bangs – like curtain bangs and other variations that compliment the client. Razor cutting is a key tool to achieving the season’s newest looks. (I just shot an educational video for the Jatai Academy that shows how I create the newest looks with the Jatai Feather Razor.

As a stylist, doing razor cutting forces me to look at each section but really analyze ‘section by section’. I don’t just look at the shape but how each shape creates light and shadow … how I create movement by cutting very shattered or solid but always soft … cutting a little here and a little there. I sculpt with the Feather Razor and like being tuned in to the texture and pattern – not just caring about and cutting a shape. I also find that razor cutting allows for less fine tuning at the ends.
