Trends, just like years, come and go. We were happy to see 2021 go, and we are eager to see what’s in store for 2022. As many people were finally able to visit the salon in 2021 for the first time after lockdown, vibrant colors and fresh cuts made a return. Now, in 2022 new hair trends are in store.

70’s blonde

Celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel predicts that 70’s natural tones of blonde will be one of the colors to dominate in 2022. He adds that these blonde tones are great “because they add depth to blonde hair, ultimately giving the illusion of more hair.”

Your natural color, but better

Experts say 2022 will be a great time to focus on embracing your natural color but enhancing it a bit. Celebrity colorist Tania Whittier says 2022 will be all about working with your natural color, “whether that be creating a soft dimension with your gray or adding some gold and highlights to your natural ashy hair color.”

Redken celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham doesn’t follow trends, so in her book, it’s always best to be as close as possible to your natural hair color with “subtle highlights, not chunky stripes throughout” and “lots of depth, with a combination of highlights and lowlights.”

Whittier believes natural color will be popular this year because “the past two years we’ve had to embrace what we have naturally and now that everyone has gotten used to their natural hair color they just want to enhance it.”

90’s brunette

According to Abergel, 90’s warm brunette with surfer vibes will make a big comeback this year. He explains that this shade helps enhance skin tones and grows out seamlessly. Additionally, “the depth by the hairline makes the sun-kissed ends pop.”

Bright colors

“Bright colors that celebrate individuality and self-expression” will be popular, says Abergel. “It’s all about self-expression and celebrating your individual voice,” especially after so much time spent inside.

Multidimensional brunette

FEKKAI SoHo colorist Marie-Antoinette Carlo predicts that multidimensional brunette shades will be popular in 2022. She points out that “many celebrities such as Hailey Bieber and Gigi Hadid have recently made the shift to be brunettes, which has inspired clients. “Whether the preference is warm tones or cool tones the two most important elements to execute brunettes is an abundance of shine and variation in tone,” adds Carlo.
