Hair trends, like beauty and fashion fads, can significantly influence cultural dynamics and impact identity and self-expression. Hair styles, like pin curls in the 1920s, may even define decades. This year, however, there have been so many hair trends, that people from all walks of life have tried out at least one. Here, we provide a list of the trendiest hairstyles to emerge in 2022.
If you want to freshen up your image before the end of the year, this list also acts as a guide for the next look you should probably try to rock.
Kendall Jenner’s Auburn Hair
The moment Kendall Jenner debuted her copper red hair earlier this year, the internet lost it. The shade of red looked absolutely amazing on her, and since the holidays are right around the corner, it’s never too late to switch up your look.
Wonyoung’s Tweety Bangs
IVE’s Wonyoung has garnered a lot of attention recently, with new hairstyles that are just adorable. Dubbed the “Tweety Bangs” because it resembles the locks of the iconic Tweety Bird, Wonyoung’s new hairstyle features short baby hairs that are laid down. TOO CUTE!
Alexa Demie, mysterious and alluring, pops up only when she feels like it (a mood, honestly). The last time she decided to show her face, she debuted a new hairstyle that features stunning micro-fringe. If you choose this style, you don’t need to worry about any hair going into your eyes!
90’s Blowout Hair
As the saying goes, history repeats itself, and the bombshell 90’s blowout is back, and better than ever! It’s iconic and despite being from the 90’s, it stills looks incredibly modern, thanks to the beautiful, layered cut.
Melanie Martinez’s signature split dye hairstyles have all the alt girls following in her footsteps. It’s the boldest way to show off your sense of style, and you can virtually choose any color you desire. Plus, bleaching your hair once or twice wouldn’t hurt, right?
Cat Ear Braid
It’s the weirdest hair trend out of the bunch, but it’s just too adorable not to mention. Not having a cat ear hairband shouldn’t stop you from having cat ears – just make them using your own hair! It’s pretty simple to do -below is a tutorial on how to create cat ear braids.
Eren Yeager/ Keshi’s Hair
If you know Eren Yeager from Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 1, then you know what hair we’re talking about. Eren’s hair is similar to Keshi’s hair in that it is above shoulder length and has a half-and-half up-do. It’s so hot, like really, really hot, that we believe every man should do it at least once in his life.
There were a plethora of hairstyles and trends that emerged in 2022, and this is only the tip of the iceberg. But these are the ones we believe made a lasting influence and will live on beyond this year. Which hairstyle would you like to try?
