In a lot of ways, beauty is like an ice cream sundae. Your skin-care routine is the base (which can be vanilla or jazzed up, depending on your preference), your makeup is the fun hot fudge topping, and your hair is the cherry on top of it all. Doing your hair — whether that means heat styling it, coloring it, or simply washing it — puts the finishing touch on your entire look.

We may not have done much with hairstyling in 2020 for obvious reasons, but all of the new products launching in 2021 have us excited about the idea of picking it back up in the new year. From innovative hot tools that make styling easier than ever, treatments that promise salon quality-results at home, and entirely new luxury collections that will transport you from your bathroom to a spa, there are plenty of new formulas on the docket to look forward to next year.

Grab a spoon and dig into all of the new hair products that 2021 has to offer, ahead.
