Summer 2022: Hair Trends


Take one look at any influencer feed in the summer, and you’ll be bombarded with braids. Everyone is obsessed with the dreamy braided hairstyles, although sadly, many of us are totally incapable of actually executing them on our own heads. We may have mastered a regular braid, but when faced with trying to recreate a complicated style like a French, fishtail, or box braid, we shy away, afraid we don’t have the skills. Luckily there are a ton of video tutorials online that can teach you exactly how to copy these effortless-looking ‘dos. Braids are incredibly versatile and stylish, and you can rock them whenever. Whether it’s a new look for the office, a weekend out of town, or when you want the ultimate wedding hair, braids never fail to deliver.

wet hair

The biggest hair trend on the runways for Spring/Summer ’19 was the wet look. The slicked back, wet-looking hair emerged into something it had never been before: effortlessly cool and super sexy—and now it’s super wearable. Sweep back your hair for a boost of shine. Alternatively, try popping your hair into a just-got-out-the-pool bun for an effortlessly chic vibe.

hair accessories

This summer, these sweetly nostalgic and slightly unassuming hair accessories from the ’90s are making a MAJOR comeback. The old-school hair staples are all over Instagram, holding back the hair of bloggers, famous hairstylists, and celebrities. Trend-setters like Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande, Ashley Graham, and Winnie Harlow have posted photos of themselves wearing their favorite clips, barrettes or headbands. Each one—whether it’s a subtle French-girl barrette or a slim and sleek metallic fastener—is perfectly ‘90s chic.

textured hair

Long hair can sometimes seem heavy or lifeless. This hairstyle reveals the texture of long locks in a natural way. When it comes to styling, there are all kinds of ways to rejuvenate lengthy hair, starting with some simple, casual beach waves or a texturizing spray. Embrace your natural texture with a hairstyle that flatters your style and ensures next-level volume. The hair looks thick and textured, but with an overall streamlined appeal.

natural hair movement

With the popularity of the natural hair movement, women are understanding the importance of getting a trim to keep hair looking healthy and retain the hair’s shape on wash-and-go days. Thankfully, women are continuing to embrace their hair in its most natural state. Texture is already having a moment, but I do see this as a trend that will only get bigger as women are embracing their natural textures and curl patterns and experimenting with creating different looks on the red carpet and in real life.

blunt bob

A bob cut, but make it blunt. Let’s just cut to it: Blunt bob haircuts are the hottest summer hair trend we’ve yet to see. Yes, bobs have made their comeback in recent years (remember the last year’s lob?), but this fresh new take on the hair trend is so much edgier. With so-blunt-they-might-cut-you ends, this look leaves hair looking razor-sharp and sophisticated at the same time. If you’re tired of the perfectly polished short bob look, you might want to take on this trend. Even some of the top celebs like Lupita Nyong’o, Lucy Hale, Kristen Bell, Demi Lovato, and Charlize Theron, to name a few, have decided to chop their hair and take part in this sleek trend.
