2. Wispy Bangs
If you haven’t been living under a rock this last year then you know bangs have made a huge comeback! From the blunt straight across fringe to the wannabe ‘it girl’ curtain bangs that swept Tiktokers off their feet. The fringe has definitely forced its way into 2022, just with a slightly different appearance…
Wispy bangs have gained popularity across tiktok lately and we’re sure they’ll pick up even more throughout 2022, especially in the warmer months! This choppy look is for sure a great alternative to the blunt looks we’dn been seeing all through 2021. It’s a great look for the curly girls who aren’t yet fully ready to commit to a bolder bang look just yet!

3. Chunky Highlights
Chunky highlights have unquestionably been popping up more and more in the recent months. But have no fear, I can promise were not talking about that high contrast blonde and brunette style that had the early to mid 2000s on a chokehold. While this look is inspired by that, I can assure the kids of today have modernised it to perfection! The chunky highlighted looks we’ve been seeing incorporates shades that are much closer together to offer dimension to the style rather than a high contrast look.

5. Chopped Natural haircuts
So many of us are looking to embrace out natural locks this year, whether that’s taking the transition slowly or bravely facing the big chop! The cropped cut is the perfect look for those wanting to start anew without going through some of the odd looking stages transitioning has to offer.

6. Effortless waves
The uncomplicated wavey look is definitely the summertime look everyone’s looking for. Simply put its where simplicity meets style! Using straighteners or a curling iron is the quickest way to do it without curling you’re whole head but still keeping the same texture. However, don’t fear, there’s definitely an option for the heatless babes as well! Simply wrap WET hair around a piece of cotton fabric ie an old T-shirt and wait for it to dry. The cotton fabric will help absorb the water without putting too much friction on the hair, causing the dreaded frizz ball look that definitely isn’t in our list.

11. Brunette hair colours.
Over the last couple of months we’ve been seeing our favourite celebrities go for more medium brunette shades instead of the once so popular blonde balayage that swept us all of our feet. At first it seemed to be because brunette shades are much easier to maintain during the winter but even as we near closer to summer it seems more and more of our once blonde babes are opting for deeper shades. The most popular ask, for this look in salons these days is a ‘chocolate brown hue’.

14. Long bangs
The curtain bangs were easily top 2 of 2021 and let me tell you this, they weren’t 2. This style is 100% popping up in 2022 but but with a slightly longer fringe. This is a great style for anyone that’s new to bangs, it can help you get used to the look and you can go shorter overtime! You’re also able to keep them out of updos but tuck them behind your ear when you need them out of your face.

These haves always been in-style and I don’t see them ever leaving. The beautiful little curls that frame the face from the front of the hairline that give a naturally beautiful affect to any updo. The untamed baby hairs end up being the focal point to the updo and often bring together any messy bun.

19. Textured fringe
The days of the perfectly preppy fringe are over. 2022 seems to be the year that we start embracing our natural selves, this could be because of the fact that the maintenance of certain styles have been so poor over the last 2 years due to lockdowns. Where all about letting our natural selves shine through! Years before so many people felt they had to straighten their bangs, even if their hair was curly but were starting to see curly freedom, even when it comes to the bangs!

20. Naturally curly hair
The heat tools are catching dust as the popularity of the chilled, laidback look has caused people to embrace their naturally curly texture. Whether your hair is wavy or full on coils avoiding heat and chemical straighteners are really big this year but we believe this trend will only gain more popularity through the years to come.
