One thing is certain: you can never go wrong with a layered haircut in 2022. How so? Layers are totally easy to care for, can be grown out super, and are also totally trendy at the same time. For example, hairstyles such as the "Wolf Cut" and "The Rachel" (named after Jennifer Aniston's alter ego from the cult series "Friends"), which defined 2021, are popular again this year. We reveal here which layered haircuts will be added as trend hairstyles in 2022.
This layered haircut looks particularly edgy on longer hair and has now become the most important trend hairstyle for 2022 as the "Octopus Haircut". What distinguishes the haircut? Extremely elaborate layers that create a special volume on the crown of the head and where the longer hair tips are worked out a little more finely - just a bit like the tentacles of an octopus. This hairstyle radiates a lot of 80s vibes but doesn't look quite as punky as, for example, the "wulf cut" or the mullet and is therefore particularly suitable for everyday use.
These layers are perfect for a luxe-looking '90s-style wavy mane. Here, only the tips of the hair are layered, which you shape with the blow dryer and put in different directions – either flipping inwards or outwards – to create the feathery effect. If you want to be particularly trend-conscious, you can combine this layered haircut with trendy 90s blonde.
The shag was presented in many modified versions last year, the most well-known being the "Wolf Cut", a mix of shag and mullet. In 2022, the hairstyle will be implemented true to the original. The actresses Jane Fonda and Anita Pallenberg, who made the cut a cult at the time, provided the inspiration here. What defines the retro haircut: layered hair to just above the shoulders and a long fringe that extends to the eyebrows. Tip: You can style the hairstyle trend a bit undone - that's what gives it its special charm.
