Biggest Haircut Trends in 2022
Lets go over the biggest and most exciting hair trends of the year! Be prepared if your customers request these:
Bottleneck Bob, Bixie and Octopus Hair Cuts.
The Bottleneck Bob
Imagine a retro-style Coca-Cola bottle. The bob shape starts with a pinched fringe and transitions to blunt layers at both ends.The neck of the bottle becomes fully customizable, depending on your choice of soft, curved fringe or a crisper fringe. .
Bob cut users are likely to be the first to jump on this trend, so we’re going to make it a little easier. Bob expert Chris Jones (@chrisjones_hair) says the easiest way to give a bob a hairy look (like a bottleneck) is to add a curtain bun. ,is a great way to break up hard lines on the face.
Bixie Haircut. Bob+Pixie Fusion
Somewhere between The Bob and Pixie enters The Bixie, a heavily layered, texturized, and cropped hair cut that falls just below the ears and above the shoulders. This trending look is reminiscent of a short 80s Shag, and when paired with its trending counterpart, the curtain bang gives a sassy French Girl vibe. A stylist must utilize both razor and scissor cutting techniques to achieve maximum movement to achieve this look
Some Stylists choose to style the bixie haircut by using a flat iron, starting at the nape and creating a loose wave. For the longer sections use 1-inch ceramic iron and tighten the waves a bit. In order to keep the softness, make sure to comb through each wave before it cools. Then finish with one of these Hairsprays for added hold.
The Octopus Haircut
Basically It mirrors the shape of an octopus—weight via short layers at the top, then thinner, longer layers coming out on the bottom.“It’s similar to a shag shape, but instead of removing a lot of weight like is required of a shag, you leave it,” says Toni Jennings, stylist and owner of Hair House ATX in Austin, TX. “In order to achieve the shape of the ‘octopus’ it requires a bit of weight. We like the disconnect between the heavily layered top section, and the length. Don’t be scared of the disconnection or the weight.
Start by creating a fringe. Once you have the fringe, use it as your guide, and over direct everything forward to meet at the guide. Leave some weight, creating a disconnect between the heavily layered top section and the length. Use a really starchy mousse to create volume, and add a bit of a texture to the base.
