The world is embracing long hair – be it through choice or necessity! We take a global look at how gorgeous luscious lengths are trending and why.
Since the beginning of 2021, hair has definitely been getting longer and both male and female clients alike are demanding that those lengths they nurtured through lockdown are now kept in absolute top condition and looking their best. We’ve brought together the hair expertise of salon professionals from the UK, the USA and Hong Kong to take a closer look at the growing trend for long hair… or luscious lengths!
“The sheer simplicity of this look is what makes me love it so much. Sometimes less is more and this look epitomises healthy hair in a classic style. Inspired by the long hair styles of the 70’s and a nod to Agnetha from ABBA, the look showcases long hair with a face framing flick on the curtain fringe, which is hugely popular at the moment.” Tim Scott-Wright @ The Hair Surgery, (UK)
Tailored, But Sexy
“For this look, I really wanted to step outside the box. Typically men’s hair is very tailored and clean. Barbering shows a lot in men’s editorial work. I wanted to express clean, tailored and sexy hair by showing how luscious lengths can still have all those characteristics and professional. It’s fashion-forward; it’s taking old grunge looks and making them cool, yet business ready.” Marilyn Vendittelli (USA)
“I love this look because the embossed detail on the hair it lifts the whole feel of the image, adding an extra dimension without taking anything away from the simplicity of luscious lengths shining in the sunshine. The image is about conveying effortless beauty, it’s that feeling of carefree hair yet perfectly polished.” Paul Falltrick, GFC Hairdressing (UK) and Artistic Ambassador for Revlon Professional
“This look is from a collection which shows the diversity of the year ahead and the diversity of the lengths of colours and designs ahead. I believe shorter haircuts will not only be changing, but the technical aspect of hair will change, more cutting methodology for accurate execution.” Michael Haase Platinum Black (USA)
