13 Beauty Trends Experts Predict Will Dominate 2021
After a truly tumultuous year, I think it’s safe to say that we’re all eager for a beauty do-over. Alas, even our beauty routines weren’t immune to the effects of 2020—as salons closed everywhere, we were forced to become our own hairstylists, estheticians, colorists, and dermatologists overnight. But a few bad box dyes and many DIY face masks later, we learned to assimilate into a largely at-home beauty culture. As we mastered the lymphatic drainage massage, root touch-up, and brow grooming, we learned about the cathartic power of self-care and came out stronger than ever.
That’s why we’re so hopeful for 2021, a year where our beauty know-how is at an all-time high. Even if the first half of it is reserved for virtual Zoom sessions in our pajamas, we’re officially bidding adieu to 2020 (good riddance) and signaling the start of a new decade with open arms and new trends. From ~luxe~ hand sanitizers and probiotic skincare to antibacterial haircare and a reacceptance of our natural hair, these are the forecasted beauty trends experts predict will emerge in the coming year.
