Although we were in the middle of a pandemic (and still are), 2021 was a wonderful year for hair. With new trends being born on Instagram and TikTok, we’ve seen everything from curtain bangs, 70s waves, mullets, and shags take center stage. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to provide you with the following haircut trends that are going to take 2022 by storm.
Image the “mixie” as the baby of the mullet and pixie haircuts. Effectively, it’s a short pixie with longer edges, which provides a much softer look. The best part? The mixie can look great on people with straight, wavy, or curly hair.
This fringe style is perfect for those who want to grow out their curtain bangs. This 2022 haircut frames your face around your cheekbones and can be worn center or off-center, depending on your individual look. It also looks great with longer layers and works really well if you tie your hair up.
This year, people are starting to move away from textured cuts like shags and mullets. Instead, they prefer heavier silhouettes and bolder lines. The bi-bob with heavy fringe is a perfect example. It still provides you with shape, being shorter at the front and longer in the back while providing you with a fresh, timeless cut.
2022 is all about embracing the natural texture of your hair. Think round shapes cut above your shoulders and worn off your cheeks. For spherical curls, our Boise hair salon stylists suggest twisting your hair around your fingers before diffusing with a hairdryer.
The European Bob
In 2021 London stylists predicted the “Italian bob.” Slightly shorter in the front, it provides you with the perfect facelift, giving you a very youthful appearance. Not only is this haircut versatile, but it also looks great on just about anyone regardless of face shape, hair color, or age. The best part? You can forget about excess styling as it’s extremely easy to wear.
The Carved Bob
Since the bob never goes out of style, our Boise hair salon stylists predict the carved bob will be the most popular in 2022. Because the ends are expertly carved to appear weighty for maximum volume, the outline will look slightly more textured, giving you a modern, retro look.
The Modern Mullet
The modern mullet is a great cut for those who want to progress their hairstyle into a more modern shape without an 80s look. A layered fringe works perfectly to frame your eyes, much like the short, sharp style above.
First appearing in Korea and Japan, the Octopus haircut consists of short layers on top with longer lengths beneath, resembling the tentacles of an octopus. The only drawback? Because this style isn’t exactly low-maintenance, you will have to visit your Boise hair salon to cut off the longer length underneath to help keep its shape.
Popular 2022 haircuts are all about medium-length and longer styles that require less maintenance and appear soft and wispy with a polished texture. Since many 70s styles have come back with a modern twist, low layers are perfect for tailoring these looks to your hair type.
While it remains to be seen where 2022 hairstyles will go, one thing’s for sure, women everywhere are loving the variations we are seeing and are ready and eager to experiment with new hairstyles.
