Trend 5: Bold “Bronde” Highlights

While I had an idea of what the term “bronde” might mean, I was excited for Johnson to give me the 411 on the details of this 2021 trend.

“In color speak, it’s the combination of how it sounds: the in-between balance of blonde and brown,” she explained. “You’re not committing all the way to blonde, but then you’re a little more lighter then traditional brown hair.”

In terms of execution, Johnson said the bronde trend “can come in the form of highlights and lowlights, more of a hand-painted balayage technique, or it can be an all-over color.”

“It’s really that thing of ‘Hey, I’m going to add some brighter pops of color here, but I’m not ready to go all the way to like a 27 or a 613,” she added. “It’s become more of a year-round color… especially with the ‘no-rules craziness’ of this past year, people are going brighter when they feel like it.”


While wearing wigs altogether might be daunting for some, Johnson said, “It’s okay to start with a U-Part wig or a lace closure wig and kind of build your way up to a frontal. Anytime a wig has less lace on it, it’s going to be easier to style, lay down, and blend with your own hairline.”

If you need the extra help, the hair expert shared that Mayvenn has over 1500 hairstylists around the country who make custom wigs, so finding your new go-to style for 2021 shouldn’t be too hard. Overall, when deciding what trend might be your best fit for the new year, Johnson encouraged people to just go for it. Her final tips to ensure your best wig-wearing experience in the new year include choosing a texture that works for you, remembering to cleanse your unit properly, and considering your lifestyle when picking your wig and texture.
