According to Glamour UK, some of the biggest hairstyle trends this year will be fresh takes on most-loved looks from the past. From the return of the ‘90s supermodel blowout to sleek Y2K-meets-2022 ‘dos, here are some of the biggest hairstyle trends we’re seeing in 2022.
2022 Hair trend: The return of the blowout
While 2021 was the year of skunk hair, wispy bangs and bobs, we can now look forward to yet another modernized look. The ‘90s blowout, famously sported by Jennifer Aniston in Friends, is making its return, being worn frequently by celebs today from Addison Rae to Adele. If you don’t have a blowout tool, you may want to reconsider getting one.
2022 Hair trend: The ‘70s are in — and no, not the disco pants
Following the comeback theme, the choppy, layered ‘70s influenced shag that grabbed everyone’s attention last year is back and better than ever. The 2022 revamped look combines a mixture of volume and texture, with celebs like Avani rocking this natural wavy style for a messy, effortless look. This look is the best mixture of casual and stylish.
2022 Hair trend: The noughties are back
Worn frequently in the early 2000s by, well, just about everyone from Paris Hilton to Lindsay Lohan, the sleek straight look is about as Y2K as it gets, in a good way — and we’re happy to see it make a comeback. The look focuses on super straight, shiny hair strands, sometimes rocked with mini face-framing braids and a middle part. It’s safe to say when it comes to the return of the look, Kim K does it best.
Grab your hot tools and get practicing — 2022 is all about modernizing these iconic looks, Gen-Z style.
