2022 is here! We know same old, same old can get boring after a while. You may be looking for something new to do with your hair just for a nice little (or drastic!) change. 2022 is a New Year and a big transition for all of us and we think it’s a great idea to reflect the New Year and new possibilities with a new and improved look. Whether you are looking for a drastic makeover or a hair enhancement, we’ve got just the perfect suggestions for you.
Here are a few ways you can bring in 2022 with a fresh look for your hair:
A New Color
This option can both be a big or subtle change that enhances your natural features. It’s up to you to decide what you’re in the mood for! Are you feeling a wild and vibrant look to start 2022? Pinks, purples, blues, yellows, or maybe even a combination of them? Or do you want a subtle enhancement such as adding in some highlights and lowlights or going just a little lighter or darker overall? For a more vibrant look, you can color your hair “Very Peri” or the periwinkle blue that has been dubbed the Pantone color of the year 2022. For a natural but cool change, you can opt for the opposite look you have now. If you have darker hair, try going lighter or adding lots of highlights in. If you have light hair, try going super dark or adding in some lowlights for some depth.
Explore New Styles
Hair styling is a great way to experiment with different looks without having to commit to anything for too long. Try out some new styles that you may not wear too often. There are an infinite number of ways you can manipulate your hair to create a new look. Some styles you can try out: chopstick curls, big curls, beach waves, sleek straight hair, braids, updos, and half updos.
Get a Big Chop
Want a pretty permanent change that will definitely catch people’s eyes? Get a big chop! If you’ve had long hair for a while, it might be a good idea to shed that length and bring in 2022 with a fresh, short look. Of course, it will take some bravery to go through such a big change but taking on the New Year with a more confident, bold look can give you the same boost for your attitude and outlook.
Get a Keratin Treatment
One of the more subtle ways you can change your look but still have that “wow” factor is to get a keratin treatment. A keratin treatment not only effectively improves the overall look and texture of your hair, it’s also a great way to start protecting your hair from external damage. Leave behind frizz and dull hair in 2021 and start 2022 with shiny, luscious, and strong hair that can withstand the harsh effects of the outdoors. You can even pair one of the other options on this list with a keratin treatment to enhance your look.
Add Some Bangs
Want a big change in terms of cut but not wanting to give up your length? Adding some bangs to your look might be the perfect answer! There are different kinds of bangs that you can go for depending what type of vibe you’re looking for. Cut some super short bangs for a chic, modern look that enhances pixie-like features, go for full-length bangs to emphasize a doll-like face or add some maturity to your look, and curtain bangs are a great option for those who don’t want the hassle of full bangs but still want something to frame their face.
Get an Undercut
An undercut is perfect for those going for an edgy look but tone it down on days or moments when you feel like it. If you’re feeling wild and wanting to express a bolder personality, you can let the undercut or shaved part of your hair show by tying your hair up or parting it in a different way. On the contrary, when you want a more modest and low-key look, you can always let your hair down and conceal your undercut. This is also a great option for those with jobs that require an understated look. You can conceal your undercut on working days and have a little fun on your time off.
New Year? New Hair!
A new year is always a great time to freshen up your look and do different things with your hair. It’s a fun way to welcome a new era and boost your confidence. Hair is not only part of our grooming routine, it has also quickly become a form of self-expression for a lot of people. So, why not make new hair part of your new year’s resolutions?
