Our hair has been through a lot in recent years. With the two-year anniversary of the first wave of salon closures, it’s fair to say our strands have been subjected to their fair share of damage. But this year, the hairscape is looking optimistically different.
For starters, appointment availability is aplenty, and it finally feels as though our hair routine (for the most part) is back to normal. While 2020 was spent trying to make our pre-lockdown cut last as long as possible, 2021 consisted of trying to get our strands fighting fit after all of the neglect. Now, with 2022 in full swing, we feel confident enough to say that this year is the year for hair—and we’re ready for change.
To get an idea of the sorts of hair trends that will be popular this year, we reached out to some of the top stylists and experts in the hair game. So whether you’re tempted to chop off all of your hair (be that a pixie, bob or just at the shoulders), dabble with a bit of bleach or simply change your daily ’do, keep scrolling for the biggest hair trends of 2022.
