At the beginning of a new year, a euphoric mood of optimism spreads among many. After all, there are 365 days ahead of you, which will bring many new opportunities, challenges, and experiences. As is well known, some people also herald such a new phase with a new hairstyle. If you too feel like starting the new year with a type change, scroll down. We've spotted the big hair trends for 2022.
Whether you just want to try a new style, a different color, or a whole new cut, there really is something for everyone when it comes to hair trends in 2022.
The round brush has become an integral part of our beauty routine at least since the trend towards curtain bangs. And it will stay that way in 2022 because this year we are styling our hairstyle with the bangs that are combed outwards. New: The remaining hair can now also be blow-dried extra voluminously.
In 2022 you can let out the rebel in you. The so-called "rebel cuts" are super popular. For example, there is the shaved short hairstyle, which has been on many people's bucket lists for a long time, but they never really dared to try it. Also coming: the mullet. Miley Cyrus did it for us and we can't help but imitate the cool haircut directly.
What used to be known as the ultimate punk hairstyle will also be an absolute trend in 2022. The Mohawk (also called a mohawk) features shaved sides and a long strip of hair down the middle. Stars like Pink have long been fans and now we are too!
The bob never really went away and will remain a hairstyle trend in 2022. And in all variations. We are particularly fond of the French bob, which ends between the mouth and chin and thus emphasizes the cheekbones. Beauty professionals wear fringed bangs or curtain bangs. With the French Bob, it is important that the lengths fall voluminously. This works particularly well with volume foam, which you knead into damp hair.
In addition to the French bob, the boy bob is also extremely popular. This is a straight-cut bob that reaches to the jawline and is characterized by a center parting. Another characteristic of the hairstyle is that you don't have to style your hair after washing or getting up. A hairstyle just the way we like it!
Retro is still trending in 2022. Experts assume that nostalgia for the past is related to the desire to slow down and is thus becoming a counter-trend to the ever-accelerating, digitized reality. Retro also plays a role when it comes to hair. Last but not least, the hair color. Especially the so-called "retro blonde" is now popular. Honey-colored blonde tones and warm caramel nuances go really well with blow-dried hairstyles, curtain bangs, and the like and make your hair look shiny, voluminous, and healthy.
Quite subconsciously, many of us have styled our hair exactly according to this trend for the last two years: not at all. Leaving hair in its natural state is arguably one of the biggest hair trends for 2022, as we tend to want what we don't have ourselves. People with straight hair regularly reach for curling irons and those with curly hair would do anything for straight hair. In 2022, we aim to be more content with what we have and spend less time (and money) on elaborate styling. If you want to give your undone look a certain finish, let it air dry and just apply a bit of air-dry cream to the lengths.
The absolute counter-trend to naturalness in 2022 is probably the desire to attract attention. And how could that be better than with eye-catching hair color? The warm orange tone, which is just as popular at the moment as natural nuances, is one of these. But beware: Red-tinged hair colors are very complex to work with. Therefore, be sure to let a professional do it to avoid a hair disaster right at the beginning of 2022.
