Seasons change, and so do hair trends! As we continue to move into the New Year, celebrities and hair enthusiasts alike are picking up the scissors and trimming off the dead ends. If you’re ready to make a change, no matter how drastic or minor, our stylists at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lee’s Summit, Kansas, have compiled some of the hottest hair trends of 2022 to get you thinking. Check out some of our favorite hair trends this year has to offer below!
According to industry experts, mullets are here to stay for 2022, and the great thing about them, you can style them in all different lengths, textures, and colors. A modern interpretation of the classic mullet has evolved into a hybrid between a traditional mullet and a retro shag. With the iconic features of shorter sides and a longer back, clients across the globe are incorporating softly blended layers to create more flow and uniformity. For quick and easy styling, our team at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lee’s Summit recommends using a blow dryer with a diffusing attachment to boost volume and further define your curls.
While the trends of the 1990s have made a resurgence in recent years, the quintessential 1970’s-inspired retro shag is still in style, and from the looks of it, is here to stay this year! The classic shag, styled with some Farah Faucet curtain bangs, is an easy way to achieve tremendous movement and added volume. Not only is a medium-length shag perfect for round faces, but by adding some simple layers, you can easily create a more feathered and flattering look sure to impress your friends.
Are you familiar with the newly coined “wolf cut”? Wolf cuts, the shag’s equally trendy and carefree little sister, have become increasingly popular among younger generations, even being sported by the likes of Billie Eilish. Essentially, the wolf cut is a shag styled with many short layers near the top that blend seamlessly into bangs to help frame the face. To help create a wispier look, our stylists recommend round brushing this low-maintenance style into place and spraying it with some light-hold hairspray. If you find yourself craving some added texture and volume, apply a mousse or texture spray and run your fingers through the final product.
There’s nothing trendier than a middle part with some face-framing fringe! Not only can these bangs be swept to either side like a curtain, but they make maintaining bangs much more manageable as they blend into the rest of your hairstyle, unlike traditional straight across bangs. If you’re not quite ready to take the plunge into a full-blown mullet or shag, dip your toes in the water by adding some fun curtain bangs to your current style. All you will need is a quick blow-dry to refresh your daily look and keep your regular routine effortless.
Having a bad hair day? No need to worry—headscarves are making a comeback! While headscarves have been around for centuries, being worn by queens of Ancient Egypt and Hollywood starlets like Audrey Hepburn, celebrities and influencers are now jumping in on the trend and accessorizing their everyday look with a matching headscarf. It’s no wonder why headscarves are at the forefront of fashionable hairstyles these days; they are as flexible and creative as you want them to be. Simply throw on a silk headscarf, and you’re out the door!
