Discovering different hair trends is one of the most interesting parts of being a hairstylist. At the Long Island Beauty School, we are dedicated to keeping our educational courses up-to-date on the hottest trends that come up each season. Hair trends are influenced by a variety of factors including pop culture, celebrities, fashion runways, and editorial work that’s featured in fabulous magazines, like Vogue and Elle each year. Are you ready to explore the hair trends for 2022? Let’s do it!

Hair Trend #1: A Rainbow of Hair Colors

Graphic and bold colors in a slew of hues that showcase the rainbow are going to continue to be a trend in 2022. People are just ready to explore hair colors outside of the traditional blonde, brunette, or red shades. Pantone’s color of the year is “Very Peri”, which is a stunning periwinkle blue that looks like the color of the violet/blue sky and is supposed to manifest calm. Sounds like the perfect Zen hair color to try this coming year.

Hair Trend #2: Shaggy Layers

In great hair cuts, you can’t beat a bunch of shaggy layers. Wash and go, right? This is a style that is seen on the popular Netflix series, “The Squid Game” which stars HoYean Jung and popular artist, Taylor Swift, who is also known for sporting a shag haircut that looks youthful, fresh, and a little bit rock & roll.

Hair Trend #3: High Shine Glass Hair

Glass hair that has an enviable shine is all the rage right now. It signals health and vitality in a way that dull hair certainly can’t. Kim K is perfect at sporting this beautiful style, and the way it’s achieved is with really healthy hair that is fully conditioned, uses hair oils, and has regular appointments for high-shine glossing treatments at a skilled salon.

Hair Trend #4: Embracing Grey

Thanks to actress and model Andie McDowell showing off her gorgeous wavy black and grey locks, it’s time to embrace grey hair in a positive way. So let those greys come through! Just make sure to shampoo and condition with hair products that are geared towards toning down the brassiness of this natural, but beautiful look.
