2022 Hair Trends

2022 Hair Trends

The new year inspires us to make changes throughout our lives. Whether it’s eating healthier, working out or dedicating more time to hobbies, January gives us a chance to start anew. 

Another way to commemorate a fresh start? Changing up your hairstyle! We are excited about our predictions for 2022 hair trends; we’re seeing old styles reimagined, natural and faux color across the board, and lots of versatility.

1. Mullet Madness 

Yes, you read that right. In 2022, men (and women!) are ditching more polished looks for messier styles, with the mullet and shag cut making a major comeback. It makes sense that these no-fuss styles are a popular trend for 2022, as more people are working from home and embracing a relaxed look overall.

2. Bob + Lob

Variations of the bob and lob made a big debut in 2021, and it looks like they are here to stay in 2022. For people looking for a more dramatic look, consider going for a jaw-length blunt bob that lends a contemporary edge. A lob (i.e. “long bob” which keeps the length just brushing the shoulders), is also rising in popularity for folks who aren’t quite ready to make a dramatic cut.  This lob is great for ladies looking for versatility, as the longer style can be worn relaxed with loose curls or styled straight for a more polished look.

3. Have You Heard the Buzz?

Salons are buzzing as buzz cuts take off in 2022. Taking inspiration from Machine Gun Kelly and Kanye West, we’re seeing men add color to their buzz cuts for a bold fashion statement. Think neon pinks, greens, orange and yellow that add a bit of punk to this classic cut.

4. Bleached Bombshell

Taking a cue from the 90s, bleached styles (especially for Gen Z who missed it the first time around), will be big in 2022.

5. Curls for Days

In 2022, people are embracing their natural hair texture, which means we’re seeing more curly and wavy hairstyles. Getting the right cut for naturally curly hair is essential, with most women opting for longer layers to keep frizz and pouf at bay. We are also noticing men men with longer hair embrace their natural curls for a relaxed, tousled look.

6. Color Story

2022 is all about color! Rather than natural highlights, women of all ages are opting for bold streaks of vibrant hues like pink, blue and purple.
