Thoroughly Modern Mullets

We know, we know!  Surely the mullet could never be cool again?!  But don’t panic, the thoroughly 2021 version of this iconic 80s hairstyle has far more to love about it than those often joked about looks of days gone by.  

The new mullet now has a modern twist and is a flattering look with a laid back vibe.  It features structured, alternative shapes and enhances the hair’s natural texture with a choppy, relaxed style.  The modern mullet has been seen modelled by super-cool celebrities including Demi Lovato and Myley Cyrus, as shown here.

This edgy hairstyle has a sexy, gender-crossover feel and will work well with most hair textures.   If you want to take the plunge with an uber-stylish new mullet look, book a consultation at our Canterbury hairdressing salon and we can create a bespoke version to suit your personal style and requirements.

Curtain Bangs Are Back

We all know that a full fringe looks great but it requires a lot a maintenance to keep it looking the way you want it to.   That’s where curtain bangs come to the fore – they’re a great stylish alternative.  The look gets its name from the way the bangs can be parted in the middle and swept to either side of your face, making them a far more versatile option than other fringe types. 

Curtain bangs are an excellent way to update your look without losing any length, particularly if you have long or mid-length hair.   This face-framing style looks soft and effortlessly chic, and will work well on most hair types.   

Your Blakes stylist can adapt your bangs to suit your face shape and hair length.   To get the best from the look, we recommend investing in some styling products to add volume and texture, but the good news is that the less perfect your styling, the better your bangs will look!

Iconic Textured Lob Hairstyles

The long bob or lob really is a classic look.  It’s a flattering style that works well with most face shapes and hair types, so it’s not surprising that it remains one of the most requested haircuts at our Canterbury salon.

A lob offers you lots of flexibility as it can be styled in multiple ways, from casual and more formal.  With a long bob, the bottom of the hair is cut to reach between the jaw line and collar bone, meaning it’s still long enough to be tied back for the gym or put up for the evening.

For autumn 2021, the lob has been updated to emphasise texture and movement for more of a rock chick vibe.  This is an easy look to achieve with right products and minimal styling, making this un-fussy style a super cool choice for autumn.

Rock Your Bedhead 

If, like many of us, you found yourself frequently rocking a bedhead look during lockdown (often with no make up and joggers….) you’ll be delighted to hear that this relaxed “style” is now one of this autumn’s biggest trends for longer hair.

As you would expect, the bedhead is a fairly effortless style to achieve, but there are a few pointers to remember to ensure that you look chic rather than that you’ve literally look like you’ve just got out of bed!   Tease out your roots to give the look a lift, add some texturising product and you’re ready to go.

To keep your long hair looking well groomed, remember that you will still need to pay regular visits to your Blakes hairstylist for a trim to keep split ends at bay.  A regular salon conditioning treatment will also help to keep your hair looking shiny and healthy.
