6 Hair Trends Making a Comeback in 2022
Hair trends have an interesting way of coming and going or resurfacing after a hiatus. A hair trend becomes the “it” thing in the world of celebrity fashion and before anyone has time to blink, the trend has already started to fade away.
And as trends change, so too might our haircuts.
Just like any other fashion endeavor, hair trends typically change over time. That’s why we’ve created this list dedicated to the biggest hair trends in 2022.
So, let’s get this show on the road.
1. Classic Bob
The classic bob is officially back. So, if you cut your hair short in the early 2000s and have been sporting long locks since then, it might be time for another change.
This time around the bob will have all sorts of variations—from blunt ends to choppy layers; you’ll see them all.
Braids are always in style, since they are versatile and work with just about any hair type. They can be used to create long hairstyles, medium-length styles, or short styles. Braids work well on most face shapes and hair colors, so you can easily find a braiding style that suits you.
3. Natural Waves
When you look at photos of hair from the ’70s and ’90s, you will see that natural waves were a thing. And we can’t be happier about this trend coming back.
It’s all about the loose, messy waves that look like you just woke up and left the house. The look is especially popular with women who are on the go and don’t want to spend a long time styling their hair.
Natural waves can be achieved with a curling iron or by braiding your hair before bed and then sleeping on it. The result is a textured, wind-swept beachy look that screams “effortless beauty.” With this trend, you’ll never have to worry about spending hours in front of the mirror with a curling iron again!
4. Intricate Cornrows
Maybe you’ve already seen them on Instagram or TikTok, but intricate cornrows (or “microbraids”) are everywhere this year. They’re the perfect style to protect your hair from the elements while still allowing you to show off your strands.
The good news is that this style isn’t as complicated as it looks, and there are a variety of ways to rock it. You can do one large braid down the back of your head, a few smaller ones, or even some smaller braids with larger ones interspersed.
The best part about this trend is that it’s easy to dress up or down. You can go from day to night without having to redo your hair.
5. Modern Shag
The modern shag is the next generation of the classic ’70s cut. And it’s very easy to style and looks good on all face shapes.
The key to the modern shag is layering. You want layers that start at your chin or a little below so you get fullness without it becoming a triangle shape on your head.
What’s more, the bangs should be long enough to push back into the rest of your hair but leave some shorter pieces framing your face. It’s important to let them grow out so you can get that cool, casual look.
And since everyone’s hair is different, you can customize your own modern shag according to your hair type and texture.
6. The Plumed Afro
The plumed afro is one of the biggest hair trends of 2022. This haircut is a perfect way to add volume to your hair! It’s an update on the classic afro, but with a much more feathery look.
What is most amazing about the plumed afro is its versatility. It can be worn with any outfit, from jeans to a formal gown. You can even dye it in different colors or dress it up with flowers.
And the best part about this style is that it looks just as good on women with curly hair as it does on those who have straight locks! If you’re looking for something new and different, then give this trend a try today!
