12 Fabulous Hairstyles to Flaunt this Hari Raya

Published on May 01, 2021

Yay, Raya is just round the corner.

While COVID-19 may put a slight damper on this year's celebrations, we are thankful that we can at least go for house-visiting even though the limit is set at 8. Still, there's an excitement in the air as we go through Ramadan prepping foods, cleaning the house and selecting new outfits for Raya. 

As busy as you are, don't forget to amp up your festive OOTD with a glamorous hairstyle to wow friends and relatives on IG. If you're in need of any hair inspo, here're some of our favourite hairstyles recommended by top stylists for Raya 2021. 

1. Classy Blonde Balayage


According to our favourite stylists from Erisu Salon, the number of ladies going for classy balayage is on the rise. 

Not surprising since balayage is one of the best ways to highlight the detail in your natural curls without requiring too much maintenance. 

You don't have to keep going back for touch-ups as the highlights are blended seamlessly to make it look super natural.

If you want to make the balayage your own, you can even discuss with the stylist to add more than one tone of colour to create a mix of ash brown that best flatters your skin tone.

You can even try the trending airtouch balayage if you're keen!

2. Two-Tone Earloop Highlights


If you don't already know, the biggest hair trend of 2021 is said to be earloop highlights.

We love this trend as we can add a pop of colour without causing too much damage to your hair. 

Plus, it's easy to hide and the small section is cheaper than bleaching your whole head.

Those who are more adventurous can even add exotic colours in your earloop highlights, like this one from Erisu Salon.

3. Rose Gold


Still not bright enough for you?

This may be 2021 but Rose Gold sure isn't going anywhere.

Especially if you have pink undertone, the rose gold can flatter your complexion and make you stand out from the crowd. 

The following colour may not look anything like rose gold but this ash grey, we hear, has also been very popular these days.

Not surprising perhaps since Hairlux Salon is offering unlimited hair colours and bleaching at $258!

A pretty good deal, we think. 

4. Teal


We don't often see this but sport this colour and you're sure to grab attention from friends all over.

5. Infused Highlights


If creative colours are not your thing, the combination of highlights and low-lights can possibly help you amp up your style without looking too over.

Plus, they help to lighten your overall complexion and flatter your curls really well too! 

These highlights from Japanese Salon Fluxus House are a sure-fire way to lighten up your overall complexion. 

According to Curly Hair Specialist Ann's Studio, you can even mix different tones of brown in a technique called colour infusion to add dimension to your curls!

Don't you just love the burst of colours?

Of course, you can also opt for subtler highlights if you wish.

The point here is not to make the colour too obvious but to add texture and shine.

You'd be surprised at what a slight brown hue can do to your overall look!

6. Edgy Ombre


For those looking to buck the balayage trend, there's always the edgy, low-maintenance ombre that gets you looking classy.

All you need to do is to pair your ombre with your LBD (little black dress) for ultimate impact. 

7. No-Bleach Brown


While many of the above colours require bleaching, there are still a number of us who prefer not to damage our hair too much.

If that's the case, a no-bleach brown may be what we're looking for to give our hair a perk-me-up. 

We spotted a really good deal at Erisu Salon with Cut and Colour at $188 and Creative Colour at $288, so don't say we bojio!

Otherwise, you can always try for a Japanese hair salon below $100 for all hair length

8. Bob Haircut


Find yourself lamenting about the heat these days?
