1. Playground Highlights

This hair color trend is all about giving your hair a “sun-kissed” glow—that is, bringing out the color that your hair turns to when sunlight hits it. Playground highlights are flattering for anyone, as it uses colors that are just a shade or two lighter than your natural hair color.

Editors tip: Don’t let your hair color fade! Use TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Shampoo, which has anti-fade technology that’s proven to keep your hair color from fading and make it last twice longer. Its color radiance booster works by creating a waterproof film that coats and binds to the hair fibers to protect them while sealing and locking the hair color inside each strand. Follow it up with TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Conditioner for best results. 

2. Rich Brown Hair Color

There’s renewed interest in darker and natural-looking hair colors, that’s why chocolate brown, chocolate cherry, caramel, and deep brown shades are popular. They are flattering for morena skin, too!

Editors tip: Keep your brown hair color looking refreshed with a few spritzes of TRESemmé’ Root Touch-Up Spray (Dark Brown Color). This temporary hair color spray conceals your roots and gray areas in between salon sessions.

3. Warm Reds

4. Shadow Roots

This easy-to-maintain look allows you to grow out your hair without having to rush back to the salon for hair color touch-ups. Shadow roots also give your hair a lived-in look and a bit of dimension.

Editors tip: Color treatments damage your hair, so use Dove Keratin Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioner to help nurse it back to its healthy-looking state. This conditioner has keratin-infused serum capsules that go deep into your strands to treat damage from within. With regular use, it leaves your hair recovered, beautiful, and resilient. 

5. Chunky Highlights

This hair color trend is about contrasts, so choose light browns and blondes for your highlights. They’ll surely pop against your naturally dark hair.

1. Collarbone Lob

This medium-length haircut falls right at your collarbone. Its length helps give balance to almost any face shape. It’s a flattering haircut choice whether you have an oval, square, or round face shape.

Editors tip: Nail any hairstyle trend by starting off with smooth hair. Get this by using Dove Straight & Silky Keratin Tri-Silk Serum Shampoo. It has the newest triple action formula that combines the power of keratin, fiber actives, and serum ingredients to instantly repair damage, deeply nourish and protect hair, and leave it extra beautiful. This shampoo also has Amino Essence that boosts hair health and helps in making it extra straight, smooth, and shiny. 

2. Tendrils

While we’re talking about face-framing, here’s a hair trend that does just exactly that: tendrils. They were popular in the ’90s, and now, they’re making a comeback. Tendrils make updos look fresh, relaxed, and less uptight, so feel free to add them to your chignons, buns, and ponytails.

Editor’s tip: Frequent styling can make your hair brittle and prone to hair fall. Use Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Hair Fall Defiance Ultra Conditioner regularly to help strengthen your strands and prevent hair fall.

3. Face-Framing Layers

Layers add movement to your hair and give it an interesting shape. Face-framing layers also help create the illusion of an elongated face shape, so they’re great in giving round and square face shapes more balance.

4. Side-Swept Bangs

What’s great about side-swept bangs is that they look great even when they’re a bit long, and you can simply tuck them behind your ear on days when you don’t feel like styling them.

5. Full, Blunt Bangs

A full fringe that’s cut right at eyebrow level or just above makes for a bold 2022 hairstyle. Just keep your bangs in good shape by blow-drying them downwards while brushing their underside with a round hairbrush. Then, put a velcro roller on the underside of your fringe for a minute or two to further define its shape, then smooth it down with a fine-tooth comb.

6. Curtain Bangs

Curtain bangs are long bangs that are parted in the center and fall on each side of your face. As the name suggests, they frame your face like a curtain. They also add a subtle drama to your look, so try them if you want a relaxed-looking hairstyle with some oomph.

7. Textured Hairstyles

Tousled looks continue to be trendy. They give additional bounce to your hair, so consider styling your hair this way if you have thin locks. Textured hairstyles also look chic whether you’re working from home or at the office.

8. Thick-Looking Bob

A blunt cut gives a fuller shape to chin-length or medium-length bobs. Add texture by adding soft waves and scrunching them to make them loose and relaxed.

9. Side-Parted Bobs and Lobs

If you’ve always parted your hair in the middle, it’s time to switch it up! You can use a tail comb to part your hair deeply on one side. Then, add a hair clip or bobby pins on the side with less hair to create a dainty and romantic hairstyle.

10. Effortless Curls

Got naturally kulot hair? Show it off! Get well-defined curls by applying a dollop of mousse to your damp hair, scrunching your hair to fluff it up and distribute the product evenly, and letting your hair dry on its own. You may also use a diffuser to dry your hair.

There you have it! Which of these 2022 hairstyles and hair color trends is your favorite? Enjoy your new look!
