hair trends for 2022 and 45 edgy ideas cover

Spring is in the air and spring is the time of changes! Many of us rock colors that aren’t traditional for our wardrobes and try out new hair styles. If you feel like changing something, here are the boldest and hottest hair trends of 2022!

Haircuts

Bottleneck Bangs

Bottleneck bangs are starting slim and short in the middle, curving longer around the eyes, and then longest following the line of the cheekbone. This allows the length and angle to be adjusted depending on whether you want to make your cheekbones appear wider or stronger, or maybe you’d prefer to slim and narrow a wider face, drawing focus to your eyes and lips. Such bangs are an exceptional technique to frame the face. Many people don’t suit a classic ‘fringe’ but most can wear bottleneck bangs to add softness to the face.

The Bixie

This is a hairstyle that is more textured than a bob, but not as cropped as a pixie, it’s messy and free, with less shape and more texture. When styling a shorter hairstyle, such as a Bixie, it’s all about creating volume and weightless texture.

Boy Bob

Speaking of bobs, a new bob on the scene this year is the boy bob. It’s the sort of cut you can just leave to air-dry and it will still look effortlessly chic and undone. Ask your hairdresser for a super-short bob, cut to the jawline, that is just long enough so that you can still tuck it behind your ears. Keep it all one length with no shape around the face.

Hair Coloring

Money Piece

With Sarah Jessica Parker back on our screens, the famous Money Piece hair trend is back with a modern twist. Instead of clusters of highlights, hair contouring uses a softer-contrast lighter shade, painted around the face in a soft color block, incorporating all the hair directly around the face including the shorter baby hairs. This is a great technique for those who flip their hair over or push their hair back away from the face as the softer contrast between hair color and skin tone lifts and brightens the face. “It is also reasonably low maintenance because there is less contrast with the color along the hair part which does tend to look more obvious as it grows out.

Expensive Blondes And Coppers

In 2022, the ‘Expensive Brunette’ trend will evolve into a larger category of expensive blonde and copper too. The ‘expensive’ element is all about soft contrast and finely woven dimension and so the same rules will apply to lighter and redder hair. With blondes it means coloring the base color lighter too as well as adding highlights.
