With warmer weather on the horizon, we couldn't help but quiz the top hairstylists on the hair trends that will be big news in 2022.
The pandemic took a toll on our hair, but it's also shifted what we want out of our haircuts.The truth is chic but high-maintenance styles just aren’t cooperating with the rest of our lives right now. Our priorities have shifted, we just can’t be bothered to style our hair every day. After all, who doesn't want a low-maintenance haircut that can forgo heated styling in the mornings?
So what haircut should we book in for during out next salon visit? Well, most experts we have spoken to advise that 2022 could be time to embrace a hair change. However, unlike big hair trends of yesteryear (blunt bob, we’re looking at you), the It style for 2022 is set to be a whole lot easier to deal with. At a time when we’re all looking for a hairstyle that’s fuss-free, easy to manage, and versatile, it’s no surprise that the iconic '70s shag is making a comeback. Revlon Professional global artistic ambassador Mark Leeson says, “The shag is the ultimate undone statement haircut. It’s choppy and full of texture and makes for a refreshing change to long, one-length hair. On a daily basis, you don’t need to do much to a well-cut shag style, as the texture and shape are already cut into it.”
“The feathered texture works for most lengths and is great for curly and Afro hair, too. To keep it modern, combine voluminous curls with a short, face-framing, ringlet fringe,” says Leeson. The key to executing the style in 2022? Keep things textured and carefree but opt for a softer cut. “You have to make sure your stylist doesn’t cut in too many layers because this could really date the look,” he adds.
