“It’s been interesting to see the styles our clients are leaning towards in 2022” says Georgia Bell, INNOluxe Superstar and Founder of Society, “and many of them want movement, texture and softness”. Georgia’s first pick of the year’s trends, The Frenchie, captures exactly those qualities. “Think strong bob shapes with soft texture teamed up with classic colour, rich gloss and gorgeous shine lines.”
“The key to achieving and maintaining this style in a low-maintenance, effortless ‘French’ way is by putting your hair’s health first. INNOluxe V3 is the new revolutionary in-salon treatment that takes bond-building and ‘healthy hair from within’ to a whole new level. Add this onto your blow-dry appointment next time you’re in the salon, or use Elixir V3 at home. This pro standard product is a leave-in conditioner with a slice of the in-salon treatment technology built in, so you can treat your hair, at-home, with ease,” says Georgia.
According to HOB Academy head of education, Jake Unger, some looks never go out of fashion, they just need an update. “The bob, waves, a fringe are all classic styles, the only difference from year to year is the way it is cut and styled. From blunt to frayed, worn straight or wavy, it’s the small details that make it look modern and on trend.” The following looks are the trends Jake thinks will be key this season!
The bob is back! This year is all about reinvention and rebirth. Transform your locks and take the plunge with this season’s statement cut. With people keen to revamp, adding new dimensions to their post-lockdown hair, the bob is the perfect cut for healthy looking hair. From the popular ‘90s one-length micro bob, to textured bedhead, the choice is yours, just bob it.
The mullet resurfaces every 10-15 years but never catches on, this season is different! With pandemic doom and gloom, the modern mullet is the perfect trend to dust off the cobwebs and go for something edgy and different. This modern take on the mullet is a hybrid of a mullet and shag haircut. Less aggressive and more lived in, sexy and textured, it requires less styling – perfect for those seeking the new bedhead look. This cut can be bespoke for any face shape and texture but works best with a natural wave.
Want a dramatic change? There are very few haircuts as timeless as the pixie. Surprisingly versatile, working with different hair textures, this year the iconic pixie has been given a new lease of life and it’s time to shine once more. Evenly textured all over or with a little length on top, the pixie cut is slowly but surely becoming the next big thing.
Bangs, fringes, whatever you want to call them, are here to spice up your style. This year’s trends are about lived in and undone textures and fringes are no different. The classic way to change the shape of any haircut regardless of length is to add a fringe – perfect for face framing and adding a focal point. Remember keeping the fringe longer will create the ultimate sexy Kate Moss-esque look. Fringes of all shapes and length are up for discussion depending on suitability, whether it’s brow skimming or brow hiding, 2022 is the year to go for it.
With boho/festival hair and 70’s hair becoming a modern-day classic, the Rachel is now slightly longer, a bit softer, less heavy and polished. Take inspiration from the iconic Bridgette Bardot who perfectly illustrate this undone ‘just a little bit’ layered through the front
