Hair trends for 2022 – kick off the year in style!
New year, new hair? Whether you’re wanting to throw off the old and start the year with a bold new look, or are just after an update to keep your much-loved style totally on-trend, we’ve got you covered.
We asked our INNOluxe SuperStars for their pick of the trends when it comes to hair cuts and colour, and they didn’t disappoint.
Kayleigh Dixon’s first pick is holographic hair, and we’re in love. The way this colour shifts and changes with the light is just stunning, adding a depth and interest that will keep you guessing about which hue you’ll spot next.
“This is a panel of colours melted together in different ways, sandwiched between something simple to give a subtle pop. It’s super wearable.”
“Gone are the days of complex colours with simple haircuts – more is more” says Kayleigh. “Think panelling to emphasise the disconnection in some haircuts”.
“This is going to be the year of the hair cut… where colours are designed to fit the cut, rather than the cut fitting the colour.”
We think she’s onto something.
Don’t get us wrong, we love colour, but we also love healthy, strong hair that carries off whatever cut you have your heart set on. We’re loving that cuts are in the spotlight.
“My clients are loving brushed out glam waves” says Chloe Passmore. This classic, sleek look has become a firm favourite following the days of lockdown hair and DIY home cuts, and we can 100% see why.
“To get the look, curls are all directed in the same way rather than alternated, and they’re then brushed out to look sleek and smooth.”
“It’s been interesting to see the styles our clients are leaning towards in 2022” says Georgia Bell, “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 classical colour, rich colour gloss and gorgeous shine lines.”
And if you want to go bolder with colour, brighter choices look fab with the French cut too!

The shag or wolf cut
It was a staple of 2021, and it’s not going anywhere! Yes, the shag cut (or the wolf cut, if you prefer) is still going strong. Like the Frenchie, this is another look that makes the most of that texture and movement that clients are loving so much at the moment.
“The shag or wolf cut remains a huge request in at Society and it’s definitely here to stay. This cut really does has a softness to it and it works brilliantly with an added curl.”
“It’s cool to be a bit daring with your placement” says Georgia, “and colour blocking works really well with this.”
This trends been building for a while, but it’s growing more momentum than ever in 2022! And it’s brilliantly versatile, so you can make it your own.
“Be as bright and bold as you like, or stick with more natural shades – colour blocking works with both.”
Chloe’s also a big fan of colour blocking, and her favourite look right now is copper with a bold money piece.
“The block of brightness framing your face makes such a big statement, and the darker colour behind it makes the front section appear brighter and more fierce.”
Healthy, shiny, soft hair
Whichever hair trend you choose for 2022, the key to making it really work is to make sure your hair is super healthy, shiny, soft and strong.
