5 Hairstyle Trends We’re Loving For 2022
The year 2022 brings hope, excitement, and a whole host of new hairstyles we can’t wait to try out. But if you’re still stuck in 2021, don’t worry, there are still a few strong contenders from last year that are here to stay.
Here are the biggest hairstyle trends of 2022 to keep on your radar and prepare for some major styling!
Bold and bouncy
After hard lockdowns and messy buns in 2021, we’re not quite done with the bold and bouncy look for 2022. Forget beachy waves which have been trending for far too long – right now it’s all about going all out, with big and bold locks! Adele flaunts this look perfectly with volume and a smooth finish – definitely inspired by the 90s!
Tools to help you with this look:
A hairdryer, grips and round brushes, size 32, 45, 53 or whatever you are comfortable with.
A few product suggestions:
That’s right, baby braids were the big thing for 2021 and it continues into 2022, which we’re really not surprised about at all. The baby braid look has been trending with celebrities such as Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid and Addison Rae.
What do we love most about baby braids? It’s a quick, on-the-go look that works with just about any hair texture, helping to frame your face, whether your hair is wavy or straight. Baby braids even hit the runway a few times last year. We simply can’t get enough of this cute, young and vibrant hairstyle.
Whether wet or dry, create a baby braid look with a little help from these products:
Sleek and straight
Bring out your hair straighteners from the back of your cupboards! Although sleek and straight might remind you of a decade ago, it is certainly back in a big way, n fact, it has been for quite some time. Right now, it’s all about long, straight and centre-pathed…but don’t forget the shine! We’ve seen celebrities like Lana Del Rey, Cara Delevingne, Dua Lipa, Rita Ora and Kim Kardashian rocking this style but it’s also a firm favourite among millennials and Gen-Z’s that feel a little nostalgic about their past hairstyles from the early 2000s.
Length and gloss is key to achieving this look and giving it a healthy shine. There really is something sophisticated and edgy about an all straight, centre path sleek look. An important part of getting this look right is to gently press the hair with your hair straightener instead of dragging it firmly. This will ensure you don’t lose any shine.
Yes, your hair straightening iron is a good ‘go-to’, however, before the ironing comes the preparation.
Use thermal protection, then blow dry your hair and smooth your cuticles for a sleek and glossy finish. Once you have completed your blow drying, you can continue with the ironing.
Here are a few products to help you achieve your straight and sleek style.
That’s right, you’ll be happy to know that the bob is going nowhere in 2022, although it might come with a few new changes in shape and styling. We love the sliced, sleek look with a bob and so does Selena Gomez and Kourtney Kardashian! Again, the center path is key to achieving this look.
As previously mentioned in ‘sleek and straight’, the same applies for the timeless bob.
The bob has more than 30 different looks and appearances, but with that being said, the highlight for 2022 is super sleek and straight with a middle parting.
Once having completed blow-drying, move onto a straightening iron to complete the styling.
- The heat of the iron will depend on the texture of one’s hair.
- Use hairspray before straightening to help keep the hair straight.
- Use a fine-tooth comb and fine sections for a straighter look.
- Application and consistency are important when applying the iron to the hair.
- Finish with a healthy oil treatment.
What we love most about this hairstyle is that it’s light-hearted and fun! You can dress it up or down, going smart or casual. But always remember heat protection first, here are a few products you can style it with:
