Eco-Friendly Hair Accessories: Spring Summer 2021 Color Trends
Believe it or not, spring is just around the corner! With March 20th signaling for the flowers to start blooming and the sun to start shining, everyone will soon be taking in all that this wondrous season has to offer.
Spring signifies the seasons of new beginnings and the promise of renewal from the harsh winter months of gray skies and barren trees. It is a season that paints the town with a beautiful array of colors. Budding yellow daffodils, purple and pink tulips along with orange tiger lilies, what a feast for the eyes!
With the cold slowly fading away, the pleasant temperatures coax us out of hibernation enticing us to step outside and smell the fresh air. Pretty soon that coaxing will take us further from our doorsteps and perhaps onto our bikes peddling merrily along through the park or taking a stroll around the lake to observe the cherry blossoms.
Ahhhh! We welcome spring with open arms!
And with the end of winter, we can begin to tuck away our bulky and itchy winter hats, wave goodbye to hat hair, and embrace the fun and playful color trends while sporting the latest in environmentally friendly hair accessories. Because after all, we are conscious and ethical consumers saving the planet while looking amazing!
Color Trends for Spring 2021
Typically spring colors bring to mind clothing decked out in pastels reminiscent of a 1970's living room. Mauve, powder blue, and buttercup yellow. But this season's trending color pallet doesn't require a time machine or stepping into a onesie.
This year we are pleased to see colors such as vibrant green, classic blue, and stunning ultraviolet. According to Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, this season is all about "...Offering a range of shades illustrative of nature, colors for Spring/Summer 2021 underscores our desire for flexible color that works year-round. Infused with a genuine authenticity that continues to be increasingly important, colors for Spring/Summer 2021 combine a level of comfort and relaxation with sparks of energy that encourage and uplift our moods".
Ultraviolet and vibrant green? This may seem a bit bold if you're working with a minimalist capsule wardrobe but hair accessories are an easy way to work in these uplifting colors to your spring wardrobe.
While ultraviolet may seem a bit overwhelming for pants check out this beautiful eco-friendly scrunchie made from 100% linen is a pleasing purple in an adorable paisley pattern that looks fabulous with a pair of classic dark denim jeans.
Or why not add some friendly greenery to your day with this spring inspired handmade natural linen headband? It's so fabulously cheerful that you'll want to wear it with every outfit!
And for classic blue, go bold with this blue leopard print 100% linen fabric scrunchie. Who says spring has to be all about flowers?
Hair Trends for 2021: Carefree and Natural
Clips and combs are out and scrunchies and headbands are in. Eco-friendly materials such as silk, linen, and organic cotton are on the rise along with a more natural look as opposed to the picture-perfect, tightly pulled back bun. Ouch!
With the lived-in look hitting the front page, 2020 has been a lesson of simplicity and it's time to ditch those high-maintenance hairstyles.
We all know that putting our hair up into a fancy braid or complicated updo is a waste of time when working from home. I mean, feel free to do so every now and then but you'll find that the world is ever-changing and fashion trends are a reflection of the current zeitgeist.
Instead of hair trends that make you cringe and leave you one step away from throwing your brush on the floor in surrender, check out these fuss-free styles instead.
The Classic Headband
The headband isn't going anywhere in 2021. According to Alison Stiefel , general manager of ShopStyle, "Headbands have shown the biggest increase in searches within the hair accessories category". And rightfully so! Headbands are a hair accessory staple and make any outfit look either fun or sophisticated.
You can use a headband to get more volume if you have fine hair, add pizzazz to a pixie cut, or contain your thick tresses with a wide fabric headband.
You can go from casual to playful with just one headband by wearing your hair up or completely down. Make sure that your headband is an eco-friendly brand made from organic fabrics such as breathable and sustainable linen, silk, or organic cotton. Not only are they better for the planet but they are better for your hair and help protect your strands from split ends.
Luxury Silk and Linen Scrunchies
This season, eco-friendly clothing and accessories are in, and this hair trend is set to stay. Though we are grateful that claw clips weren't invited to our 90's throwback party; we sure have fallen back in love with the scrunchie!
Scrunchies are versatile and made in all types of sizes, colors, and patterns. While organic cotton is certainly better than polyester, search through any fashion magazine and you will find that the silk scrunchie is the trendy hair accessory to shop for.
A simple low ponytail dressed up with a fun and colorful giant silk scrunchie will get you ready for some springtime fun!
And for those company zoom meetings when you want to look your best for those awkward close ups, add a simple bun to your hair style rotation for a look that says 'I'm still professional even though I am still wearing my white fuzzy slippers.'
