It’s never too early or too late to make a change — including one that involves your tresses. If you’ve been meaning to get a chop but don’t know how long or short you want your hair to be, here are 2022 haircut trends you may want to try.
What haircut is in style for 2022?
You know how fashion trends keep coming back? The ’90s and the noughties have been creeping up since last year, and their trends will continue to be huge this year. So if you’re looking for inspiration on what style to wear for your hair, these decades are the perfect ones to consider. Not sure which one to try? Here are five of the best and trendiest.
The shag is back — layers, bangs, textures and more! The look is great for not only those with straight hair but also our curly-haired sisters. If you’re looking for celebrity inspiration, think Taylor Swift.
We all love the blunt bob, but say hello to its equally sophisticated sibling. It’s exactly what you think it is — a long bob, around shoulder-length, that’s cut sharply and bluntly. Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens are just a couple of celebs who’ve rocked this look.
Yes, the Rihanna Bad Gal era look is back. While the undercut and shaved sides of the early 2010s were paired with longer tresses, this time, the edgy undercut is coupled with a short ‘do like a pixie. Pink, Demi Lovato and Scarlett Johansson have all worn this look.
The Tiktok trend isn’t going anywhere. Curtain bangs are still part of 2022 haircut trends, and if you didn’t ride the bandwagon last year, you may want to finally jump on board this time around. It doesn’t have to be super ’70s-inspired though. You can check out Alexa Chung’s noughties take on it.
Meet the lovechild of the bob and the pixie. The look first gained popularity in the ’90s, but it’s now back in the limelight. This is perfect for those who love layers and textures. If you’re looking for a modern take on this look, Rowan Blanchard is a great example.
Is short hair trending in 2022?
To put it simply, yes. A lot of variations of a ‘short’ haircut are trending this year — from the lob to the shag.
Are layers in style in 2022?
Layers will also continue to dominate 2022 haircut trends, with last year’s shag and mullet leading the pack. If you’re not into these bold layered looks though, good ol’ textured layers are also still ‘in’ right now.
