We live in an age where new trends are rising every day. Short, long, blonde, black, curly, you name it. The more unique the style, the more people will get impressed by it. As the internet has become our primary source of information and inspiration, everyone knows what is trendy now and what everyone else is doing. The trendsetters of today take a great deal from the celebrities they idolize to make their own styles.
For example, Adele’s new song ‘Easy On Me’ has one other big talking point about her hairstyle. Many fans “breakdown” a hair look from celebrities, singers, or actors and make sure they replicate it on themselves to remain in the loop.
In this blog post, top celebrity hairstylist Rene Fris tells you everything you need to know about the latest hair styling trends to watch out for in 2022. Let’s begin.
Q: Which hairstyle trends — cuts, colors, styles — do you predict rising in popularity in 2022?
According to top celebrity hairstylist Rene Fris, hair trends change every year, and the faster it changes, the better for those who want to stand out from the crowd. Fris states the following as some few trends he envisioning in 2022.
Trends in Haircuts
Short and Wild Shag
This is the ultimate girl-next-door ‘do — everything you need and nothing you don’t. One of our all-time most requested cuts, it’s also incredibly easy to style and maintain. Just a quick round brushing through and it looks like you walked out of the salon with it done every day. It’s our Short and Wild Shag.
Blunt Collarbone Cut
In a word, YES. This silhouette is the new leader in shorter hair, and we can’t quite believe how much it works for everyone. We’re all about the wispy texture, of course. Just ask any of our heroines about that. And don’t go getting us started on the virtues of a blunt jawline bob — we could wax poetic here for hours says Rene
Soft Curved Bob
The Soft Curved Bob haircut is a fresh take on the classic bob, with slightly longer layers for movement, and soft, yet gently-shaped ends. Combined with a deep side part, this look flatters every face shape.
Mia Wallace Bob
Our Mia Wallace Bob is beautiful with its mid-length blunt cut, layered bangs, and perfectly coiffed waves. Rene says It’s sophisticated in one way, but still has that classic 50’s pin-up vibe. A style that makes everyone swoon. No wonder it is still on the trend.
Cheekbone-Grazing 90s Bob
The 90s were all about power and control, and that look is still very much in demand. It’s all about razor-sharp lines and super glossy strands with this chic bob. The upper layers are long enough to cover the short back and sides, while the slick finish flatters on-trend up dos too.
Trends in Colors
Milk chocolate colored brown hair is a great choice for women who want to make a bold statement and stand out and away from the crowd. The color looks remarkable on medium and dark skin tones and provides a nice balance between rich and lighter shades of brown.
The rich red-brown shade of this permanent hair dye is ideal for adding maximum red tones to darker, non-bleached hair that has been lightened to a level 8 or lighter. Such copper hair looks great with all different skin tones and eye colors!
Face Framing Highlights
Most hairdressers agree that face-framing highlights are among the best ways to bring attention to your best features. Face framing highlights create a bolder look that will accentuate your facial features and make them more visible. Highlights come in many colors and styles, so there are a lot of options available for everyone!
Honey blonde hair color is a gorgeous, natural-looking hue that has been rising in popularity for some time, however, it still appears to be one of the trends for the coming year. This look is perfect for women who want to add a little more warmth to their locks without going too far from their natural hair color.
Ombre is one of the hottest trends in hair color for 2022. It helps to achieve a unique look that encourages volume at the root of your strands. It offers an array of colors that can be customized based on your personal preferences and gives the appearance of more volume at the root of your strands.
