Gray hair is not a statement. You are natural. At 20. At 30. At 40. From 50. They don't know any age and shouldn't be something that women have to put up with for a long time. On the contrary: It's time to make gray hair the hairstyle trend of 2022. The natural highlights should finally become the actual highlight - not make you old, but self-confident.
And indeed, gray strands are becoming more and more relevant - as a real alternative to colored lengths, they are the hair color trend, which is also increasingly being artificially colored. Because: Gray hair – aka gray blending – will undoubtedly be cool in 2022!
Whether natural or colored: in 2022, gray hair will no longer be an indication that you didn't make it to the hair salon. “In the past, we've seen trends dominate fashion – for example, the perm era, the highlight decade, balayage, vibrant colors, and tones. Now there's a trend towards natural hair colors and gradient grays are also a trend," Wella Professionals director Robert Eaton told American Glamour. The hair color that people tried to hide for so long has become the hairstyle trend of 2022 - and so relevant that some even deliberately let the highlights be set in the lengths - and much earlier than nature can do.
Of course, the expression of the hairstyle trend 2022 depends on the natural hair color: With light hair, gray highlights are much less noticeable than dark ones. And regularity is also crucial: while the tinsel hair falls out as desired for some women, for others it should be helped and gray strands should be added for a stylish, even look. As Miranda said in And Just Like That... "Do I look like someone who cares about their hair? I've turned mine gray and I don't care if it makes me look old.” Because the only meaning gray hair can have in 2022: it's the most natural hairstyle trend!
Depending on whether you get your gray strands naturally or have them set by a professional, the routine is a little different. Both variants need a lot of care, that much is clear - after all, the gray blending looks best in shiny hair. That’s why you should – especially with long hair – rely on nourishing shampoos and conditioners, ideally, do a treatment once a week and always (!) use heat protection when styling – or simply do without a hairdryer and the like in the home office.
For colored hair, it makes sense - similar to blond strands - to use a silver shampoo. This removes reddish pigments from the hair and gives the gray a real luminosity. Since the hair has been bleached in this case, you should give it back an extra portion of moisture in the care. They thank you with the shine that you always wanted anyway. And ensure that gray will become even more relevant as a hairstyle trend in the future than it already is.
