As much as I love a new makeup trend or nail trend, I will say that nothing transforms your ~lewk~ quite like a brand-new hairstyle. But, at the same time, there’s also nothing that can make you look feel as tired as a haircut or color that you’ve been wearing for far too long. So if your current hairstyle needs a 2022 update, let’s help you shake things up. We asked a few celebrity hairstylists and experts for their predictions of the biggest hair trends that 2022 will bring, and we gathered them all here for you. From tiny tweaks, like a change in your hair part or adding a little gloss, to major changes, like heavy bangs and long extensions, these will be the 17 biggest hair trends next year. So go ahead, start your new year off with a bang (get it? Okay, bye).


Mid-Length Bob Haircuts for 2022

Celeb hairstylists and R+Co Collective members Clariss Rubenstein and Marwa Bashir both say the ’90s will continue strong in 2022. First up: the mid-length bob. Longer than a short bob but shorter than a long bob, this haircut falls somewhere above the shoulder and below the chin and will be a hit for 2022, according to Rubenstein. “I’m seeing a mid-length, blunt, ‘90s-style bob,” Rubenstein says. “Think Kourtney Kardashian’s latest chop.”


Bobs With Center Parts for 2022

While we’re on the topic of blunt ends, one of celeb hairstylist Weezy’s top predictions is the blunt cut, on both short and long hair. If you want to give your hair a fuller, healthier appearance, Weezy recommends a haircut like this that’s straight across and all one length.


‘90s Layers for 2022

But blunt ends aren’t all we’ll be seeing next year. Bashir says long ’90s layers will be making a strong comeback, too. A layered haircut is great for adding volume, movement, and shape, and framing the face, so if your current style could use a little bit of all of that, incorporate layers that suit your hair type and texture into your look.


Bobs With Side Parts for 2022

This next year, prepare to see a major return of an old favorite hair part: the side part. Celebrity extensionist Priscilla Valles predicts we’ll be seeing lots of chic bobs with either a heavy side part, like the curly bob shown here, or a center part.


Mid-Length Layered Hair for 2022

According to Valles, 2022 will be less about the long, thick inches and more about classic medium-length to long-length hairstyles. Hair will still be nice and thick, though, with lots of layers shown off by a blowout and heavy side part.


Soft, Effortless Curls for 2022

Another one of Weezy’s top picks for 2022 hair trends is light, soft, effortless curls. To get the look, Weezy uses a wider barrel hot tool so that it creates more of a nice, soft wave, but you can also shop a similar look with a wig like the wig shown here.


Natural, Effortless Hair for 2022

Whether it’s French-inspired, effortless hairstyling or natural color, Bashir loves the idea of less is more for 2022. “Lots more color that feels natural but with an elevated gloss or natural highlight,” Bashir says.


Long, Sleek Strands for 2022

“I see sleek, long, and straight being very big in 2022,” Rubenstein says. If you’ve been dying to try out the dramatic straight hairstyle, make next year the year you finally do.


Bouncy Blowouts for 2022

Hope you perfected your curtain bang styling routine because the layered fringe look will be sticking around for 2022. Valles particularly loves curtain bangs with a really pretty blowout instead of beach waves. “Make room for your jumbo hot rollers!”


Slicked Back Strands for 2022

If you like this wet-look hairstyle, do I have good news for you! As far as hair products that’ll be trending for 2022, Aaron Grenia, cofounder of IGK Hair, says we can expect to see lots of gels and products for slicked-back looks like this.


Long Lengths for 2022

Valles says another big trend for clients will be hair extensions about 17 to 21 inches long (or if you’re not fluent in extension speak, that means hair that hits somewhere between your chest and waist). Since hair only grows half an inch-ish a month, the best way to get long lengths by 2022 is to make that appointment with an extensionist soon.


One-Dimensional Color for 2022

According to Weezy, one-dimensional color, like soft black, subtle chocolate brown, or warm ginger, will be knocking balayage off the top spot and taking over as the go-to hair color trend.


Natural Hair Color for 2022

“Life drastically changed after many months of quarantine and so did our habits, routines, and priorities,” Grenia says. “We’re learning to embrace our truest selves—this means embracing our natural color and texture.” With all of this in mind, Grenia expects people to be practical, natural, and faithful to their true colors next year.


Side Bangs for 2022

Not only will we be seeing a resurrection of the side part for 2022, but get ready to see lots of side bangs, too. Celeb hairstylist Anthony Campbell has a feeling lots of clients will be asking for a side-swept, slightly longer bang in 2022. The good thing about a long bang is if you’re not ready for full-on fringe, you can fake it first by tucking it behind your ear or pinning it to the side.


Healthy, Shiny Hair for 2022

According to Bashir, 2022 is also gonna bring out more healthy, shiny hair. To get amazing shine like this, try an at-home hot oil treatment or see your colorist for a hair gloss that enhances your natural color.


Blunt Bangs for 2022

If you’re already doing the whole bang thing, and you’re ready to go even bolder, try heavy bangs. Campbell predicts a heavier, straight across, blunt bang will be super popular for 2022.


Thick Bobs for 2022

For the record, extensions aren’t just for length. Valles says a thick, short bob with a center part or heavy side part will be a huge hair trend for 2022, and if you don’t have a thick head of hair, use extensions to fake fuller strands. With the right cut, your stylist can blend the extensions into your bob to add natural-looking volume.
