Hair trends change constantly, but there are certain looks that seem to stick around and be relevant every year. Whether it’s the pompadour or the undercut, some hairstyles have been popular since long before you were born! Here are five hairstyles of 2022 you should try out while they’re still hot.
1.) The Return of the Bob
In 2022, hair trends are all about simplicity and ease of styling. The bob cut is a versatile haircut that will never go out of style because it can be styled in so many different ways. Simple yet chic, the bob is the perfect hairstyle for women who want to look professional yet youthful at the same time. It also pairs well with most face shapes, making it easy to find your ideal style no matter what you’re looking for.
In addition to this retro ‘do, the wavy lob and long layered bobs are also making their comebacks. These styles are best suited for those with shorter or mid-length locks as they require less maintenance and show off your natural texture better than most cuts do. Lastly, we have faux-bob—a new technique that involves lifting sections of your real hair and fastening them around an elastic band until you reach the desired length. The result is a full head of volume without sacrificing any length or thickness!
2.) Braids are Here to Stay
Braids, braided hair, and whatever your favorite style of braid may be are still wildly popular and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. They work with any hair length, thickness, or texture! Some people like to mix them up and do a different braid for each side of their head. If you have bangs, braiding them back is a great way to get them out of your face. Some women even use braids as an alternative to hairspray: wet your hair then braid it so that it can hold its shape better!
3.) Asymmetrical Cuts are Still Trending
Trends always come and go, but this one looks like it will stick around for a while. Asymmetrical cuts are all the rage in 2022. Achieving a look similar to these can be done with different lengths on either side of the face, or by letting your hair grow out and only cutting off one side. If you’re looking to get an asymmetric haircut, make sure you know what you want ahead of time so that you don’t end up with something completely different than what you expected!
4.) The Half-Up, Half Down Look is Still Popular
In 2022, the half-up, half-down look remains to be a popular trend. The style is one of the most versatile hair trends and can be styled many different ways. The look has evolved from being a casual chic hairstyle to a polished and sophisticated style that you can wear for work or an evening out.
It is created by pulling the top section of your hair up into a ponytail and then back down into a low bun. It is possible to wear it in various ways depending on what type of event you are going to attend. You can wear it as an elegant up-do or as messy waves for more casual events.
5.) Bold Colors for 2023…and Beyond!
This year, we saw hair colors that were a bit more on the wild side. Cool tones, like blues and purples, will take over as well as the neon brights that were popular in 2020. And don’t forget the rainbow! This is the perfect way to make your style really stand out against all of those pastel shades that were so popular last year. The best part? You can rock this color for a few days without worrying about washing it out. Rainbow hair is here to stay!
