You only need to look at history to see how cultural trends are often governed by what’s going on in society; flower power was a symbolic protest against the Vietnam War, disco was about gay liberation and post-Civil-Rights racial integration, and punk was an anti-consumerism statement. These trends heavily affect the way people choose to express themselves through the clothes they wear and how they style their hair.

As salons start to reopen and socializing picks up, we hope that there will be a new wave of hairstyle exploration. The expert team at All Things Hair has come up with 12 post-lockdown hair trend predictions – think bright, think bold hair!
