15 Biggest Hair Trends Of 2022 According To Top Influencers

Refreshing your look is a trend that never goes out of style, and nothing feels better than flaunting a new ‘do, especially when it's on-trend. Much of our inspo comes from social media influencers and red carpet celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens. She scored big with a sky-high updo at the 2022 Met Gala. While we may not all have access to a celebrity hairstylist the latest hair trends can (somewhat easily) be recreated at home.

Top influencers have weighed in on the biggest hair trends of 2022. The 90s hair trends are back (we see you crimped ponytails and curtain bangs) and are making their way into 2022 style guides on TikTok and Pinterest.

We’re spilling the tea on everything you need to know about the biggest hair trends of 2022, according to top influencers, so keep scrolling.

1. Braids Are Back

Celebrities and braids go hand in hand in 2022, and Hailey Bieber proved that on the red carpet when she traded in her usual bouncy beach waves for a tousled braid at the Grammy awards. Kendall Jenner also rocked a side braid at Coachella, putting her own spin on the trendy look. 

Face-framing baby braids look great on everyone because they add texture to your tresses. Break up hair uniformity by adding tiny braids randomly all over for a fun vibe. 

  • Celebrity hairstylist Sienree recommends that people with curly hair wear larger braids and that fine hair textures wear smaller braids. 

  • Suite Caroline Salon senior hair stylist, Howard Reyes, recommends misting your hair with a texturizing spray before braiding to aid in the hold. Finish with a flexible hairspray to complete the look.

2. Shaggy Lob Haircut

Long shag bob cuts (Lobs) are a fun and versatile hairstyle that work well on many hair textures and lengths. Taylor Swift shook it up with a mid-length wavy, layered lob that complemented her look. 

It’s essential to consider face shape for the short bob hairstyle. Rounded face shapes need a sleek, longer-length bob to elongate the face, while longer faces look best in shorter bobs. Bangs can be added to accentuate the on-trend hairstyle.

Center part bobs are also making a comeback. 

3. Wolf Cuts With Bangs

The wolf haircut trends big in 2022 with or without bangs. Ultra-long or curly, anything goes with this throwback shag/mullet cut. Versatility is where this hairstyle wins big. Wolf cuts look great with lots of volume or no volume at all. 

A wolf cut is a haircut that's short on the sides with a longer top. It's also called a mullet, though it's not always as extreme as that word implies. Curly hair and straight hair pull this hairstyle off well. We’ve seen it trending on TikTok with celebs like Billie Eilish rocking the ‘do.

The wolf haircut relies on a precisely angled cut, so make sure to visit a hair salon for the popular 2022 style. Don’t forget to add volume by using a hairdryer, giving the angled ‘do a nice shape.

4. Balayage Blonde

Contact your hair colorist because balayage is the latest hair color trend. The French word “balayage” means “to sweep.” This hair color technique involves sweeping a light hair color or highlighting over sectioned pieces of hair from the midshaft to the ends. Balayage usually involves chocolate brown and blonde shades, but any colors can be used. Clair Foy flaunted blonde balayage strands at an event earlier this year. 

Balayage is popular among women who want a more subtle look than traditional hair bleaching. 

The feathered color blends, so you can't tell where it ends and begins. This makes it an excellent choice for women who want to hide their age or hair damage from previous color services. 

Balayage is also a good option if you don't want permanent changes that require frequent trips back to the salon every few weeks or months.

5. Curtain Bangs

Kaley Cuoco frequently takes to social media to post quirky pics with friends, but it's her curtain bangs we can’t get enough of. 

Curtain bangs are flattering on everyone because they frame your face in such an interesting way and make it look more youthful and fresh than ever before.

This fringe makes a statement. It splits down the middle of your forehead, and longer pieces drape down either side, blending with the rest of your hair. The bangs are very versatile and easily hidden as they grow out. 

Curtain bangs are an easy way to add some flair to your look without having to do much work at all. They're perfect for days when you want to look put together but don't have time for anything extra. 

6. 90s Blowout

With an emphasis on volume and curl, the 90s blowout is a throwback to the days when round brushes, hot rollers, and blowdryers were a staple in your beauty arsenal. Long or medium-length hair works best with this style, finished off with hairspray.

So what exactly makes a blowout so appealing? It all comes down to how it can transform your look without having to spend hours styling it yourself — and spending money on products. 

7. The Bixie Hair Style

A “bixie” is a low-maintenance cut that mixes the style of a pixie cut and a bob - think Halle Berry in the 90s, but fluffier. This cut is perfect for someone who wants to keep their hair short while still looking chic and modern. 

The bixie is suitable for women of all ages because it is customizable. It has the texture of a traditional pixie and is perfect for those with wavy natural textures to their hair. If you're looking for an easy way to update your look without making too much effort, this style is right up your alley.

8. Claw Clips

Claw clips get the nod from celebrities in 2022. Celebs like Bella Hadid and Kaia Gerber wear these 90s hair accessories with pride. Simply twist your medium-length or long hair up and allow the claw clip to grip around the twisted section of the hair against your scalp. 

Claw clips can help style your hair, or simply keep it out of the way throughout your day. 

9. Natural Hair

Natural hair is in, so rock your curls like it’s 1999. Effortless, soft curls are on-trend; flaunt natural curls or use a wide barrel curling iron to create your own. 

10. Slicked Back Strands

Add an ultra-mod look to your ‘do by sporting the wet-look hairstyle. Apply hair gel to your tendrils and comb it straight back until every strand is in place. The slick style was seen all over the red carpet at the Oscars.

11. Side Swept Bangs

Side swept bangs are a big deal in the hair world these days, and this fringe option is perfect for those who are apprehensive about cutting a short, blunt, or curtain bang. If you’re considering cutting bangs but still want to keep your length, pleated or side-swept bangs are an excellent choice. 

They can be worn smooth and flat, softly layered, or styled with a little teasing. The front sweep is beautiful and soft, yet the bangs still tend to look natural and modern, so they work great on any face shape.

12. Glass Hair

Glass hair, shiny hair, glossy hair, they’re all the same, and 2022 strongly welcomes the trend. Creating epic shine involves keeping your hair hydrated with conditioner and using serum, glazes, and special treatments that create a sleek hair look. Glassy hair is the beauty trend of 2022, and this look gives a high shine finish on both straight and curly hair. 

13. Mermaid Hair

Mermaid's hair is back, and the waves are even more magical this time. Create dreamy mermaid hair by using a heated wave iron over your strands. This tool is designed to create crimped waves and will make your locks look like you just stepped out of the ocean. The waves look like something out of a fairy tale, hence the name, “mermaid hair.”

14. Red Hair

Hair color is one of the most influential trends in fashion, and it's here to stay. Hair color trends are constantly shifting, but we can expect to see red hair for now, fiery red is on trend in 2022. This flaming color comes straight from the sun-drenched beaches of California and the year-round sunshine of Florida. 

Strawberry, copper, and auburn fiery hues are being worn by celebs such as Sophie Turner and Zendaya. Ask your stylist to add a hair shine glaze after the coloring service for extra glossy locks that sizzle.

15. The Throwback Bun

The throwback bun is a brilliant way to keep your hair up and tucked away. Whether you have short, medium length, or long hair, you can create masterpieces like braided buns, half-knots, and chic chignons with ease; bobby pins and elastic hair bands will keep your buns in place all day long.

To Sum It Up

There are so many hair trends, and you may find it challenging to keep up with them all. We all know that hair is important. It's what makes you unique, and it's what makes you stand out. If you're looking to try out a new hair trend, take some time to think about your specific hair needs. Consider whether your hair is dry or oily, curly or straight, thick or thin and whether you have dandruff or other scalp concerns.
