Top 100 Hair Trends in 2020

From Waste-Free Shampoo Bars to Luxury Hair Extension Services

— January 16, 2021 — Fashion
The 2020 hair trends highlight the latest in hair washes, masks, styling tools, and more—with plenty of products and services to cater to consumers with all hair types and needs.

To help consumers protect their hair from harsh dryers, the MODA ONE was launched as an adaptive tool that changes heat settings in response to different moisture levels. Using this smart adjustment technology, the hair dryer is able to measure moisture levels at over 20 times a second, ensuring only the necessary amount of heat is used to both safely and efficiently dry the hair.

Those looking to give their hairstyle an extra edge might be drawn to Major Moonshine's Glitter Hair Gel, which adds a layer of shimmer and helps to hold the hair in place. Another feature comes from Batiste, who created a dry shampoo alternative that uses a waterless cleansing foam. With its updated formula, the product refreshes the hair without leaving any residue.

For more hair trends in the year ahead, check out Trend Hunter's 2021 Trend Report.
