Winter is upon us, and the holiday season is underway. Decorations are up, shopping is at its peak, and pictures of perfectly wrapped presents are popping up all over social media. This exciting time signifies that a new year is about to begin. It’s this time of year that gives us a glimpse at what the new hair trends will be in 2022, and we like what we’re seeing. Effortless, laid-back styles will be what carries us into the new year ahead. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite trends for the coming year.

Natural Texture

There is no hairstyle so easy-going and laid back than one that embraces natural texture. Whether your hair is wavy or curly, ditching heat styling and allowing your strands to do their own thing will be the biggest trend in 2022. Styling products and accessories will be all you need in the coming year, and Charles Ifergan Texturizing Gel will be your new best friend. Applying it generously to towel-dried hair, scrunching, and air drying will accentuate texture, define curls, and smooth waves.


The laid-back, natural theme will continue with the coming year’s color choices. For naturally curly hair this means curl-lights. Highlighting curls rather than changing their overall color means less risk of damage or altering the curl pattern. Carefully chosen curls are gently hand-painted with color to make them pop. These well-placed highlights liven up the natural color without getting lost amongst all the texture, volume, and movement.

Messy Waves

This is a style that is quick and easy to achieve. If your hair lacks natural texture the Bio Ionic Stylewinder Rotating Styling Iron will be your new best friend. This style saves time by not having you curling your entire head of hair, but still gives you the texture you’re looking for. And if you do have natural texture it’s a wash, scrunch, and go style saving you even more time.
