The year of statement everything
We’re shouting it from the rooftops; 2022 is going to be a major year in the glorious land of hair. Say it’s because we saw more split ends than friends this year, but alas, we plan to go all in with our cuts and colours, mainly because we damn well can again.
But because said zest for change is burning bright (and at this stage we’d consider magenta mohawks if it meant we looked different/felt fresh), we decided to call in the experts to ensure we stayed within the ‘chic’ lane while experimenting.
Luckily, they don’t plan to reign us in too much: “Anything with an impact [could be on the cards]” according to Marie Uva, Director of Uva Salon. “People will want big changes to help them recover from 2021! I’m looking forward to seeing bold, liberating and empowering looks,” she explains.
The need for ‘new everything’ was a sentiment echoed by Stevie Corthine, Founder of Stevie English Salon and AHIA Creative Colour Expert 2021. “Coming out of lockdown I think we will see people being drastic and wanting change so we will be creating big chops and lots of colour transformations. People have had a long time to think about their new look and will be much more willing to experiment with dramatic changes and have fun with it,” he shares.
So if you’re on board to sample something fresh, but don’t know where to start, allow us to bless your inspo boards with the expert-approved colours, cuts, styles and overall hair trends set to reign supreme in 2022…
