Sleek high pony
Not into the all-natural look, but still want a style that isn’t too much effort? A sleek, slicked back high pony will make you look pulled together without requiring a lot of prep time. To style, start with a light hair oil on your palms, and gather your hair at the top of your head, smoothing back as you go. Secure with an elastic, and spray on a medium hairspray to fight flyaways and lock in the style. For an extra boost of shine, finish with a shimmering mist and additional hair oil on the ends as needed.
What do you get when you combine the 2021 pixie hair trend with the bob of 2022? The bixie! The textured bixie haircut falls in between a pixie and bob in length, making this the perfect next step for someone with shoulder-length hair to try, if you’re not quite ready to commit to a super short cut. To style a bixie haircut, start by applying a curling mousse, then diffusing to avoid frizz. Once the hair is dry, finish by applying a brushable hairspray to help set the look and natural-looking texture.
Hair Color Trends in 2022
And finally, we’re talking color! There’s a color trend for everyone — from the most bright and bold purple, to a color reset that will simplify your maintenance routine.
Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year, Very Peri, is not only a fun color to mix into your interior design plan, but also a bold hue for your hair. A periwinkle blue with violet-red undertones, Pantone describes Very Peri as: “Displaying a carefree confidence and daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit.” We can’t think of a better meaning behind trying this exciting and expressive new hair color! The only thing to keep in mind is the upkeep required for this style — even with colored hair products, the hue will start to fade without regular color refreshing appointments, so ask your hair stylist for a realistic maintenance routine before you make the plunge.
