Top 2022 hairstyle trends to check out
While many 90s hairstyle trends have long been taking over the modern style world, the 90s blowout seems to be stealing the spotlight again. This style is made modern and upgraded with more bounce, sleekness, simplicity, and sophistication. Try this out should you want to strut that classic bouncy hair while staying au naturel!
Some classic supermodel hair pegs include the styles of Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, and Claudia Schiffer!
Although we’re not quite there yet, hearing the name of this hairstyle might make us want to dive into the beach and ride the waves! This time, why not bring those beach vibes closer to you? Try wearing them with beach waves. For you to create this classic style, you’ll need a curling iron or wand that creates long-lasting waves.
Beach wave hairstyles typically resemble the loose and messy waves in the salty seawater and the beams of the sun. Cop that total cool babe look with textured and effortless wavy hair that keeps you shining like summer.
If you have an oily scalp or skin, and you want to keep it fresh like a summer look, make sure that you also use natural skincare ingredients.
Are there other short hairstyles better than a seemingly flawless yet effortless bob? While there has been a myriad of versions such as ones that are chopped in razored ends, it seems like it’s the middle-parted longer bob that will take over the trend list this year. This statement cut offers a flattering shape with extraordinary wash-and-wear quality.
What’s even cooler is that your medium-length bob can be straight, shaggy, wavy, or layered—whatever works for you. Such options offer you styles like modern, classic, or fad.
To achieve this look, you can start longer, and then tell your hairstylist to go for a candid, full style while ensuring that you keep layers to a minimum.
Keep that pretty-and-posh-girl vibe alive by wearing pigtails, half-up-dos, and blinged-out barrettes! You’ll surely never go out of style because whatever season it is, Y2K just seems to always have a place in the fashion realm.
Prop up yourself as you channel a Y2K style by wearing colorful hairpins, pastel crochet hats, butterfly clips, and cutesy scrunchies. Beam bright as you strut playful, nostalgic, and aesthetic style vibes. The Y2K takes a lighthearted and fun approach, with less focus on heavily contoured styles. You can check out Olivia Rodrigo’s Y2K beauty look in the video of her recent single called “Brutal” for some style inspo.
The 70s-inspired bottleneck bangs are another style that’s going to slay the runway this year! This style is flattering and face-framing but can be adjusted to fit almost any face shape!
Bottleneck bangs basically have the shape of the typical fringe but are narrower at the top and then get wider (comparable to a bottle’s shoulders) with curves toward the two sides of your face.
You can ask your hairstylist to make longer bangs that complement your cheekbones at an ideal angle for your overall face look. Afterward, you can ask for the middle part to be trimmed a bit shorter, with the shortest part in the middle gradually getting longer toward the side edges.
You can spot bottleneck bangs on celebrities like Dakota Johnston and Margot Robbie.
While this may sound complicated, the sleek-front-loose-back style might be what you need! There have been many variations of this style. One example is a contrasting style where the hair is slicked back at the front and then loose at the back.
This type of hairstyle can instantly transform your overall look into something that feels fresher with a wet-look finish, cleaner, and ultramodern. You can blow-dry your hair’s top section back while using a brush and keep it fixed with hairspray. As for the back part, you can keep it voluminous to accentuate the style.
The Modern-Day Rachel cut
This iconic 90s cut is inspired by Jennifer Aniston’s character “Rachel” from the well-loved TV show Friends. This look celebrates blow-dried hair layers. Interestingly, it’s making a comeback this year but with a twist.
Rachel’s cut was way shorter and styled with maximum volume and hairspray amount. Meanwhile, the modern-day version is a little longer, softer, and has more hair movement. While the latter may need some time to master, you can ace this look by simply blow drying sections of layered hair with a barrel brush and pinning the parts with rollers before letting them all out and about.
Another regular yet chic go-to look that stays timeless is the low ponytail. With this hairstyle choice, you can channel your inner diva while feeling laid-back. You can opt to do it in a totally straight and smooth way a.k.a. its most relaxed state or with full and voluminous loose, with hair tucked behind the ears. If you want to keep it glossy, you can opt for natural and nourishing options, such as using coconut oil.
Never be afraid to experiment with new styles for your hair! Explore different options and choose a hairstyle that suits you. You can also consider the style trends above for ease of style reference.
Once you’ve identified your signature style, don’t hesitate to strut it confidently. Own your look!
