Post-Lockdown Hair Trends

Ideas to Help Lift Your Hair Out of Lockdown from Blakes Hair and Beauty Salon in Canterbury

We can all agree that lockdown has been a strange time, defined by rainbows in windows, home workouts… and wild hair

For many of us, the first long-awaited visit to the hairdressers since lockdown feels like emerging from a period of hibernation during which we’ve been planning our next hairstyle for a very, long, time.  Since reopening our successful salon in Canterbury, we’ve noticed a lot of people requesting “new hair for a new me”. 

After 3 months of dull and lifeless hair, you definitely deserve a new style which will restore your hair to its former glory, or make it even better.  Whether you’re ready to shed your overgrown lockdown locks or you’re looking for hair repair to fix a home-cut fringe gone wrong, here’s a few ideas to help wake your hair up with a new look for the new era.

Bobs and Lobs: 2020’s Hottest Post-Lockdown Trend

Lob hairstyles Blakes Canterbury salonFor many of us, lockdown has left us feeling weighed down by our hair, and we’re gasping for a proper hair cut now that the salons have reopened.  As well as literally lifting a weight off your shoulders, short haircuts are a great way to symbolise the start of a new era of you.  Making it much easier to wear masks and PPE, short styles are also a great way to ready yourself for the ‘new normal‘.

The lob has been in fashion recently, and it is now emerging as the must-have post-lockdown hair trend.  Vogue has described it as “2020’s cut of the summer”, and Elle magazine has called lobs and bobs “one of the hottest hairstyles to have”.  Never has such a practical look been so fashionable!

To keep your short hair looking sleek after months of lockdown neglect, we’d recommend booking in a hair treatment at your next visit.  At Blakes, we offer Olaplex, Moroccan Oil, Paul Mitchell treatments, to ensure that your hair looks shiny, new, and better than ever before.  Click here to find out more about our treatment range.

Cute and Curly

Natural curls at BlakesLockdown has given a lot of our clients the time to appreciate their natural beauty, and many have been asking us to help them accentuate their curls.  At Blakes in Canterbury, we have the skills, creativity, and years of experience to come up with excellent ways of making your curly hair look fantastic. 

To create curly looks which really turn heads, short and mid-length styles cut into strong shapes are a good way to go.  We can also recommend hydrating treatments to reduce frizz and face-framing colour to help your hair bring out the features of your face.

Our range of products from Moroccanoil are particularly good for curly hair.

Love Your Hair Longer

On the topic of appreciating natural beauty, lockdown has been a chance for our hair to grow longer than it has done in years, and many of our clients are realising that they like it that way! 

Since reopening, we’ve noticed that a lot of clients have opted to take out their hair extensions, going for natural styles which help them love their longer locks.  At Blakes, we can add layers and perhaps a bit of balayage to help you embrace your longer locks by adding depth of colour and highlighting your face rather than drowning you out.

Gorgeously GreyGrey hair at Blakes

Lockdown has given many visitors to our salon the time to re-evaluate their relationship with grey hair, often for the first time in years!  At Blakes hairdressing in Canterbury, we’ve noticed that people want to embrace their naturally fashionable grey hair, whilst adding subtle highlights.  One silver-lining of being hidden away at home for so long is that it has given hair a chance to go through that awkward in-between phase being coloured and going grey, away from the public eye! 

To bring your grey hair to life, why not try our range of hair treaments from Olaplex?  They’re designed to make your hair stronger, silkier, and more vibrant.
