The Biggest Spring Hair Colour Trends For 2021
If you’re one of the eight million Australians currently in lockdown, then it’s time to get planning.
With each day that passes, we are inching closer to a lockdown end date and (more importantly for us beauty lovers) closer to hairdressers around the country opening up their doors. And when that moment comes, we need to be ready.
Ready with inspo pics, a vocab full of the latest trendy terms (forget balayage, we now only speak of ‘bronde’) and well, the part that might prove the most difficult, snagging yourself an actual appointment.
So without a second more to waste, here are eight spring hair colour trends that we suggest you save or screenshot for your upcoming salon visit.
Peaches might just be the best part of the warmer seasons. So why not double down on the golden delights by incorporating some peachy tones into your hair.
“Peachy copper tones are a great way to bring vibrancy back to natural coppers while still maintaining a natural look,” says Edwards And Co salon founder and director, Jaye Edwards. And for the lighter-haired ladies, “it’s a great way to warm up your blonde tones, ready for the hot months ahead.”

As you might’ve guessed from the name, ‘bronde’ refers to a hybrid colour of blonde and brunette. Achieved through balayage or highlighting techniques, a classic warm bronde is natural, effortless and low-maintenance.
Jaye praises this look as “the perfect way to add a natural pop of colour for spring”.
The perfect candidates? Blondes who don’t want constant touch-ups or brunettes wanting to go lighter without making any drastic changes.
“An Instagram and TikTok favourite, the Scandi blonde is back in a big way” says Jaye. A classic Scandi blonde look is clean, white and bright. Free of any remnants of yellow, bronze or ash tones. Gorgeous.
Jaye does warn that this colour is “even more high maintenance than a scalp bleach”, though, and will require regular glosses and high-quality at-home products.

Play to your strengths and make your natural curls pop. Jaye best describes this style as “sun-kissed bronde tones seamlessly blended to enhance natural colour”.
His biggest tip for styling this look? Hydration, hydration, hydration. “Ensure you are investing in quality products for hydrated curls, free from fizz and defined to perfection.”
While some of these spring hair trends require a few tricky techniques and the combining of a few different shades, this classic colour is as simple as it gets. For far too long brunettes have been spending their dough on blonde upkeep, but this spring it’s all about the natural chocolate brown.

This shade of blonde is all about looking lived-in and effortless. Keep your roots as close to their natural shade as possible with a mixture of baby blonde, deep honey and warm sandy shades faded into your hair.
50 Shades of Purple
Think orchid, lilac, violet and amethyst. Last year we lived for an icy, baby pink and this year we are all about the warm and vibrant but soft purple hues.
Salt And Pepper
Another major theme for spring 2021 hair trends is keeping things natural. And what’s more natural (and empowering) than clearing the stage for some of our silver and grey tones to shine through?
