Trending Haircuts For 2022

hair trends

New Year, new you? If you are looking forward to reviving your look in 2022, you may well be considering a change of hairstyle. Many of us tend to stick to the same cut. Or, if we have long hair, fall into the trap of a ponytail or messy bun every day so that we can get on with things.

However, there’s a host of haircut trends perfect for a little change. So let’s take a look at what’s trending to inspire your next cut.

Luscious layers

If you want to keep the length but stay on-trend this year, go for the layered look. It requires blunt ends worked into longer layers, which gives a fabulous volumised look when you blow-dry.

Opting for layers can accentuate your face shape, and your stylist will know exactly to make them perfect for maximum impact. For example, the layers can skim the cheekbones or line up with the lips - whatever best suits you best.

The beauty of long layers is that you have total flexibility with everyday styling, especially if you haven’t got time for the full blow-dry.

Beautiful bangs

If you have been thinking about a fringe but are unsure that you want to commit, why not consider the on-trend look of grown-out bangs. This is almost an extension of layers, keeping it shorter in the middle of your forehead but longer at the sides.

It harks back to the winged fringes of the ’70s but with a more modern vibe. This style works well with any hair type and helps create soft framing to show off your best features.

Nice and natural

2022 is all about keeping it natural. People are moving away from sculpted looks that are hard to maintain. If you have naturally wavy hair, think about taming its natural curliness rather than putting your locks through the straightening process. For straight locks, hold back on the heat too and embrace a slight wave.

If you’re considering the au-natural look, good quality products are also your best friend. These go-to essentials will tame frizz and keep your hair healthy.

Cracking crops

Have no fear; if you prefer your hair shorter, you will be relieved to learn that the bob plays a massive part in hairstyle trends in 2022.

Again blunt bobs are stealing the limelight, and many celebrities have been seen chopping their locks to see in the New Year. If you’re feeling brave, the perfect bob sits in between the chin and the collarbone, but there’s also the option to go shorter for très chic styling. There’s also the option of a longer bob or lob, which is perfect for anyone wanting to take this cut in stages.

The fringe associated with chic Parisian style is having its moment once again. This sleek cut arches above the brows and is soft on the cheekbones. It’s also a pretty heavy fringe, but the textured edges create a more versatile style compared to the blunt cut.

 

Micro fringe

This fringe trend might not be for everyone, but A-listers from FKA Twigs, Emma Roberts and Bella Hadid have been spotted rocking this statement style. If you’re tempted to get the micro fringe chop, chat to your stylist about what suits your face shape and how to maintain this cool look.

 

The blunt cut

Blunt bangs are one of the most popular options when opting for a fresh new cut. This fringe falls across the forehead and is ideal for naturally straight hair. However, blunt cuts can emphasize the width of the face, so chat to your hairdresser on the best options.

 

Curtained bangs

The curtained fringe is a slightly less tousled version of the 70s bangs. This look naturally falls to the sides of the forehead and around the eye. This fringe trend is perfect for concealing a broader forehead and draws attention to the jawline.

What’s your favourite fringe trend?

Fringes will always be in fashion, but it’s sometimes challenging to pick the right style for your face shape. Plus, they are typically more maintenance in-between regular cuts. However, if you’re thinking about revamping your look, chat with your stylist to see what could work for you and your lifestyle.
