4 major grooming trends you need to know

4 major grooming trends you need to know

Fuss-free and natural characterise the grooming trends for S/S ’21 season. Making bare face and dewy skin as the order of the day across the four fashion cities, the hair division saw classic styles making a big resurgence.


Curlier Tufts

Homme Plissé Issey Miyake
No. 21

Enter the ‘cherumbim’ hairstyle. We first saw it on Harry Styles and Timothée Chalamet, and this season, it was all over the fashion capitals. Making a loud and clear appearance at shows such as Berluti, Hermès, BOSS and Ami Paris, this soft, tousled curls with long fringe and layers gave the models a playful and youthful appearance. Elsewhere, there were more subtle iterations of this hit cut, as seen at No. 21 and Sandro. To achieve this look? Embrace your natural curls and visit hairdresser to have texture added into the hair in the form of layers.


Textured Statement

Dries Van Noten
Isabel Marant
Tom Ford
Neil Barrett

The cropped textured look has been the imperative look for a few seasons now. Led by Isabel Marant, Dries Van Noten and Jacquemus, this hair style gives off a masculine appeal because of that hint of just rolled out bed messiness, while also looking well put together, polished and professional – making it ideal when transitioning from bed to a Zoom meeting. Perfect for those with thick hair that’s coarse/wavy, this ‘do is characterised by clean sides and texture on top – cut in a square-round shape and requires minimal maintenance. The idea is to muss it up for a casual sentiment that doesn’t come off as overly-styled.


Bro Flow

Saint Laurent

Inspired perhaps by all that time spent away from the salon during lockdown, length is making a welcome return. To complement this season’s laid-back clothes, designers at Celine, Saint Laurent, Gucci, Amiri and MSGM let models’ locks flow free on the runways for a relaxed and still statement-making mane. If you’re not down with buzzcut, opt for this hairstyle instead. The rule for achieving this hairstyle is to avoid the barbershop, keep your hair in good condition and to have it trimmed regularly.


Quarantine Buzz

Reese Cooper
Homme Plissé Issey Miyake

A nod to the current climate and its call for not needing a haircut for months, buzzcut strode down most of the digital presentations this season. This ‘do has been proven to withstand the test of time – and it will always look good, as evinced by the shorn heads that walked the Reese Cooper, Jacquemus, Versace and N.Hoolywood presentation. The key to a good-looking buzzcut is a full face with strong jaw line but who cares when you’re spending most of the time at home anyway.
