New year means new beginnings. This could be organizing your closet or making big travel plans after COVID (hey, we can all dream). Or, it could be changing your hair color. You’ve probably tried a few different winter hairstyles or haircuts before and are looking for something more dramatic?

“Experts believe that the 2022 hair color trends are more natural. COVID encouraged people to care for their hair more. This includes using less heat, more treatment-based products and most importantly, accepting their natural textures.” says Nicole Kae, hairstylist, part of evo’s Australian creative staff. “This is a long overdue change, in my opinion. It’s crucial that stylists suggest the right products to help clients achieve a natural look. Many waves, curls, saltiness, and shinier finishes are to come.”

Don’t worry, bold hairstyles aren’t going away. “As we move into 2022, we will continue to see emerging trends,” Craig Purves, oVertone Ambassador and London-based stylist says. This means that styles are changing and getting warmer.

No matter what your hair style preference, these are the trends that the pros predict will be big in 2019.

  • Retro Hair Revival

Employers are not the only ones who prefer a hybrid model. According to Yelp’s 2022 beauty trends report, the famous ’70s-mullet is back. According to the report, “Lil Nas X is one of many stars bringing back the ‘business in front, party at the back’ style.” “Yelp searches of’mullet” are up 73%, a trend that we expect will continue into 2022. Another disco-era favourite, curtain bangs are enjoying a surge in popularity, with an 828 percent increase in search.

  • Very Peri Hair Color

Pantone’s Color Of The Year is Very Peri. It’s a vivid shade of periwinkle with vibrant violet-red undertones. This trendsetting hue is not only being seen on walls. According to Tom Smith, celebrity hairstylist, European creative director for Evo Hair, Peri will be a very popular shade, especially for blondes. Peri is a wonderful color to use on hair. Because it is cooler in tone, it can look great with any skin color. He says that it will make your skin appear richer and warmer by contrast. Peri can only be used if your hair’s base color is perfect and light enough. Peri won’t work if it is too dark or too shiny.

Remember that Peri will fade slowly if it is not allowed to fade. It will then turn to a pale lavender, then a cool, silvery brown, and finally settle at a neutral, creamy blonde shade. Peri is a great choice for people who prefer cool, platinum blonde colors. It can fade just as well as when it was new.

  • Rebel Cuts and Power Bobs

Be gone soft layers and timid trimmings. Hard-to-miss styles such as mullets and octopus cuts to bob-cut wigs will be the most popular in 2022. Joseph Maine, celebrity hairdresser and co-founder at Trademark Beauty, says that 2022 will be the year for the chop. “The sloppy, overdone hairstyles of the last couple of years will soon be history.” People are open to a new look and willing to take a little more care.

Amy Abramite is the Maxine Salon’s creative director and stylist. She also said that HBO’s Succession has been fueling the rise of the “power bob”. Abramite says that the one-length cut is clean and straight. It also has no layers for a sleek look at the top. The bottom is strong and clear with a sharp, blunt line. For a swingy look on straight textures, the length should be worn below the chin. A trim is required every four to eight weeks in order to keep the hair looking fresh.

  • PRF Injections

If you don’t know what platelet-rich plasma is, it’s a treatment doctors use to speed up healing in different areas of the body, including the scalp. The cousin to platelet-rich plasma is platelet rich fibrin. It’s used to treat signs and symptoms of aging, such as wrinkles on the scalp or face. Yelp predicts that the treatment will become mainstream in 2022, with 44 percent of people searching for it. Platelets can be injected into the hair to stimulate hair growth.

  • Bottleneck Bangs

This hairstyle is inspired by the bottle’s neck. Starting short and slim in the middle, the hair will curve longer around the eyes and continue to the end following the line of your cheekbones. This allows you to adjust the length and angle depending on how strong or weak your cheekbones want to appear,” says Tom Smith (celeb hairstylist, European Creative Director of evo hair). Many people don’t like the ‘fringe’ (the straight horizontal line that runs across the forehead), but many can wear bottleneck bangs to soften the look.

Smith suggests that you ask your hairdresser for longer bangs to achieve bottleneck bangs. He will suggest that they cut your cheekbones at an angle that flatters the face and curve around to create a layer between your jawline and cheekbones. Ask for the central section to be cut shorter. Keep the cutting line soft and choppy and the edges longer.

  • Liquid Hair

People are switching from beach waves to sleek, shiny hair that has some movement as the temperatures drop. Liquid hair does not appear wet, unlike the wet hair trend. Think of shiny, soft, and reflective hair. Because of its sleek appearance, it reflects light like water (hence the name). It can be flat-ironed straight and sleek, or it can have a salon-quality, volumizing blowout.

  • Styles with a middle part: Sleek upstyles

The 2021 trend for middle parts was a hit. According to Maine, 2022 will continue that trend with an updo. This is a simple one: instead of combing your hair like normal, leave the part intact. Smoothen any flyaways using a paddle brush and styling gel.

  • Pin-Up Pony

Inspired by Brigette Bardot, a 1960s bombshell, this ponytail-curtain combo was created. Abramite says, “Known for her tousled bouffant looks, this casual pony will dress down long hair paired with turtlenecks or scarves.” You can achieve this look by dividing the hair in the middle and curling the hair away from your face with a large barreliron. Spray dry texturizing powder all over the hair to remove any slippage. Backcomb the crown with a cushionbrush and secure the ponytail in the nape with elastic. To give your hair more volume, let loose parts fall onto your face and frame it. Finally, use a cushion brush to backcomb the crown and secure the ponytail with an elastic.

  • Chocolate Cherry

Winter hair colors are becoming darker, in case you didn’t notice. Highlights or balayage can create warm highlights, where the lightest color is a variety of reds (roses, reds, and coppers). This can be combined with a rich brown background color and highlights. It works well with layers through your interior and curtain bangs, where you can add a pop of color around your face,” Lorena Martinez (colorist at Maxine Salon Chicago) says. Talk to your colorist to ask for a deep brown with red ribbons to match your skin tone. You may need highlights or to achieve balayage depending on where you are starting from. However, it is possible to do this look with minimal lightener to make it healthier for your hair.

  • Winter Flannel

Martinez and Jimiseon say that this winter look, winter flannel, creates ribbons of color but still maintains dimension. They say that these chunky highlights frame the face’s perimeter and can be styled with a roundbrush for movement. The benefit of this is that you can add a splash of color to your look while maintaining high dimension. Ask your colorist to recommend ribbons that are bright and leave lots of background color so the color pops.

  • Gypsy Moth Blonde

Even though blonde has seen a temporary rise in darker tones, it isn’t going anywhere. Rich natural tones, reminiscent of the moth’s color, are expected to explode in 2022. Martinez and Jimiseon advise that warm blond foil highlights be placed at the top or close to the top. Ask your colorist which warm shade would look best with your skin tone. Think tones such as red, yellow, or orange.
