2022 Hair Trends x SJ Forbes

New year, new hair!

New year, new hairstyle? It’s the perfect opportunity to try something new! It’s a fresh start with a new focus. Looking for some new inspiration to be bold or to even discover something new for your profile? You’ll find that the year 2022 represents an intriguing mix of looks that are bound to spice up your hairstyle. We have even bigger plans for our hair this year, as last year we were trying to hold our lives together with hairspray for the second wave of the dreaded C word. This year we are on to bigger and better things, especially bigger hair.

We know that last year focused on low-maintenance and embracing a more no fuss, natural texture vibe. Movie nights and zoom calls were the only Friday night vibe! Now we are all expecting 2022 to be a little extra and special. Generally after the few years we have had, we are more grateful than ever to enjoy simpler things such as going out for dinner and welcoming gatherings whenever we want! And we need the right hairstyle to do this, right?

As much as we love a manicure refresh and a new makeup fix, nothing transforms you quite like a brand-new, fresh, radiant hairstyle. But, equally, there's also nothing that can make you look feel as tired as a haircut or colour that you've been wearing for far too long. So if your current hairstyle needs a dash of brave and bold for 2022, SJ are here to help! We have put together 5 of our favourite predictions across the board incorporating all things style, colour and cuts.

The SJ take on top hair trends for 2022

We love some of the hair transformations which we see every day in the salon. There are the bold hair moves, which say it with attitude, and then are the subtle and clean moves to sophisticatedly make noise. Thats why we don’t just look at colour changes, we often find a cut enhancement makes equal impact to hair styles. 

Want to make a statement? Want to try something different? Regardless, we have the hottest trends below you will want to spray straight into:

Top 5:

  • Wispy Bangs

Wispy bangs add natural bounce, and can refresh absolutely any hair style. Wanting to add some depth to your style? This style is hotter than ever right now.

Whispy Bangs

  • Sleek front, high and voluminous back

The look that we have all loved for a long time which isn’t going anywhere. Style with a dramatic eye make up look and you have the ultimate sleek appearance which can be styled for a wide wray of occasions. 

Sleek High Pony
  • 90s / textured layers

Fine hair? Add more volume, more texture and say it with attitude with 90’s and textured layers. Easy to achieve and a subtle enhancement to your mane. Style with some sea salt spray to give that va va voom!

90s Layers

  • Clean girl aesthetic - low bun

The hottest trend every girl is yearning over right now! As seen on Molly-Mae and Bella Hadid. The prettiest, prim and proper low-maintenance hairstyle that enhances your face features and channels your eau natural. 

Clean Girl Aesthetic

  • Seventies blondes

Adding some face-framing and a root stretch of colour to a balayage style, creates low maintenance, effortless and chic finish, adding that fresh take to a classic look. Style alongside: choppy bangs, butterscotch blonde tones and layered with heaps of volume
