2022 Beauty Trends In The Hair Industry

The hair industry had a fantastic year in 2021! Celebrities, TikTokers, and influencers all pushed for the newest fashions, and as a result, plenty of recent trends emerged. Curtain bangs, ’70s waves, the mullet, and the iconic shag are all on the list.

A new year means a new beginning, and what better way to get your year started than with a fresh haircut? Throughout history, hairstyles have unquestionably influenced cultural movements and identities and defined eras.

Since this time of year is so full of feelings with little time to sort them out, experiencing January blues is understandable. A new hairstyle is one thing that often makes all of us feel better when our brain is overheating, our apartment is freezing, and seasonal lethargy is ever-present.

Here are some of the hottest looks for the new year!

Spring 2022 hair trends 768x512


We’ve all grown to love the sleek-back look for a long time, and it’s here to stay! A “contrasting style where the hair is slicked back at the front and loose at the back” is one variation of this style. When the trend has taken over social media, there’s no better time to try a middle part and a top knot than now.


Mixie combines a mullet and a pixie cut, making it short with longer edges that give it a softer look. You can use it if you have straight, curly, or wavy hair.

Textured Layers

Layers, layers, and more layers can give fine hair more texture, and focusing on the midpoint of the hair to the ends prevents you from losing too much volume.

The Natural

The idea of embracing one’s natural hair texture, be it kinky, coily, curly, wavy, or straight, will continue to gain popularity this year as more people work up the courage to experiment with their grey hair. Keep in mind that gentle, sulfate-free shampoos are essential if you want to embrace your grey hair and natural textures.

70’s Curtains

Those who want to grow out their curtain bangs can rejoice because this new fringe style is here to save the day. If worn in the middle or even off-center, this longer curtain fringe frames the cheekbones beautifully.

If you like to wear your hair up, you can put the curtain fringe out for sudden softness, and it will still look great with some longer layers in the rest of the haircut. Gorgeous, and it’s about to be a big deal in 2022.

Extreme-Long Locks

We can expect to see dramatic hair transformations, either short or long, for the next few years – in 2022. As for the latter, look for it to be a major trend in the coming year. Extensions are a must-have if you’re willing to go along with the current hairstyle. To keep it current, request face-framing layers and a V-cut at the back from your stylist.

The Rachel Greene Cut

Blow-dried layers of the 90s, based on Jennifer Aniston’s character, Rachel, from Friends, are in again! Rachel’s hairstyles are back in style. It’s the same old story, but with a modern twist: the above-the-shoulder length with longer, bouncy layers, is a fresh take on the previous look and is quite the opposite of the shag.

Blow-drying sections of layered hair with the barrel brush and then using rollers to hold them in place before letting it all out is the best way to achieve this look.

Beachy Waves

The name makes us want to dive right into summer! So we have something to look forward to, even if we aren’t quite there yet: experimenting with making waves. You’ll need a hair wand that can create long-lasting waves for days to achieve this classic look.

Spiked Hair

The ’90s are making a comeback, and there couldn’t be a happier time. The hair is left untreated to achieve a layered, unpolished look to achieve a spiky appearance. The result is always youthful and glitzy, regardless of the type of hair you have.

Box Braids

There are many ways to enhance the beauty of box braids, such as using fast and simple styling techniques. In just a few simple steps and only two bobby pins, you’ll be able to master this look!

Looking for a quick and easy way to wear box braids every day? A simple ponytail is all you need to get started. Create a cinnamon bun at the top of your head by braiding them separately. Styles like these are sweet and simple and can be dressed up or down.

Wispy Bangs

Soft bangs with a light feathering at the end are known as wispy bangs. Wispy bangs will look good on people with relatively long faces who want to look thinner. If you have fine hair and don’t want to commit to a thick, full fringe, they’re a great option.

Choppy Layers

Today’s short haircuts are all about choppy jagged ends and multi-layered dimensions with a lively shattered effect. Cutting-edge styles feature fun, disconnected layering with an untidy look and feel.

The choppy short hairstyles are based on bob, pixie, or A-line haircuts, but they give a new look. With the help of color enhancers and contrasting textures and lines, you’ll be able to take your style to new heights. You can’t afford to miss these new and exciting ideas for your spring and summer fashions.

The Modern Mullet

In 2020, the mullet will make a comeback, but with a modern twist. This time, it’s all about embracing natural texture, mixing in bright colors, and wearing more structured yet unconventional shapes. More hair is kept on top than in the 80s, and the back length is not as extreme.

Medium Hair with a Center Part

The majority of people will look stunning in these elegant hairstyles! Your lovely facial features will be highlighted by your haircut, parted in the middle, with the sides framing your face. If you have a round face, you can move the parting to any side of your face.

We hope the aforementioned 2022 beauty trends in the hair industry were worth your while. Happy hairstyling!
