2022 Hair Trends & How to Get The Looks
If 2021 has left you feeling like you need something to look forward to, you are NOT alone! We all know the last couple of years have felt like one bad dream, but that doesn’t mean your clients should be walking around with bed head. Stylists, it is time to switch up the vibes out there. That is why we are dusting off our mood boards and highlighting some of the exciting hair trends we can’t wait to see in 2022.
2022 Hairstyle 1 – Embracing the Natural Curl
For the clients who want to rock the laidback or natural look, we recommend embracing the natural curly texture. This look will work for wavy and curly hair types. Take the look a step further by having your clients embrace the curly bangs look or suggest “Curlights”. According to Clayton Hawkins, celebrity hairstylist and Tangle Teezer stylist ambassador the “Curly Fringe isn’t going anywhere.” For maximum definition and softness for curls we recommend Alfaparf Milano Style Stories Twisted Curls Cream. If your clients are concerned with FRIZZ be sure to point them in the direction of Kevin.Murphy’s Killer.Curls leave-in anti-frizz defining cream. For those who are rocking the Curlights, or any hair color, we recommend protecting the color and the curls with the ColorProof Trucurl Curl Perfecting Collection.
2022 Hairstyle 2 – Bring on the Braids
Long dramatic braids will be huge according to Hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew . To enhance the look be sure to tailor it to your client and accessorize. For the clients who are more about low maintenance we love a good messy or loose braid. For a complete look we recommend complementing braids with fresh new color. After all, 2022 will be chop full of new color trends including the new appreciation for Toasted Caramel and natural brunette tones. To replicate the gorgeous look from @hairbykaykorpi we recommend using Alfaparf Yellow Lightener and a glaze using Keune Tinta Permanent Color.
2022 Hairstyle Trend 3 – Long Live the Long Ombre
Nothing is guaranteed in 2022, that is especially true as the world continues to battle Covid. That is why we foresee the Long Ombre being a smash in 2022. This is the perfect trend for all clients who are looking for a stunning look with low maintenance. The Long Ombre is all about taking the traditional look of the ombre and extending the root area. Think of it like your clients got highlights last summer and they are still growing out. The best part of this look is that you and your clients can still play with tones and color.
2022 Hairstyle Trend 4 – Live Vividly
For the clients who want drama (in their hair) tell them it’s time go get VIVID. We have always been a fan of people expressing themselves with vivid hair colors, but now we are seeing so much more variation, and we are LOVING IT. You may have already noticed that more clients are requesting that their natural color have vivid highlights, vivid money pieces, or even requesting ombre’s dipped in vivid colors. This is a trend that we only foresee increasing as the year goes on. For the next evolution in hair color we recommend Pravana Chromasilk Vivids. To protect your clients’ vivid color and restore dry/damaged hair be sure to recommend Leaf & Flower CBD Phyto-Molecular Oil. Your clients won’t believe the shine! To add beautiful color while providing intense nourishment and shine we recommend Aloxxi Instaboost Condiditiong Color Masques.
2022 Hairstyle Trend 4 – Aren’t You Just Slick
Whether your clients prefer their hair up or down, the slick look is going to be everywhere in 2022. We personally agree with Harper Bazaar, and cannot get enough of the Sleek Chignon. Our team feels the slick low buns are beautiful for weddings, or for a day at the office. From Versace to Fendi, the sleek look is hitting the runways and leaving an impression on all the latest collections. For those of you who have been itching to use the flat iron more, fear not the time has come. Slick straight hair is in. For an even more on trend look be sure to have your clients rock the middle part. For high hold and sheen we recommend trying Eleven Australia’s Slick Hold Styling Pomade.
