1. This Red Hair Trend for 2022
Different shades of Copper hair are really popular right now. And the best thing about red, is that there’s a shade for everyones skin tone. Book in for our bronze balayage service above which embraces the warmer palette autumn colours. Copper hair—it’s the ultimate hair color to try for fall. To keep that expensive-looking shine that you get with a new hair colour, be sure to use a regular hair mask to lock in the gloss.
2. Dressed-Up Ponytails for 2022
Ponytails are such an easy trend, and not only that, but you can actually dress them up and embellish them—and they can look effortless, great for a night out or change to work. To get this super-straight ponytail start by priming your hair with a hair straightening cream before using your flatiron. We recommend using gel or wax to get a true sleek look.
Snatched and sleek ponytails will always be in style and 2022 is no different. Super easy to do at home or if your struggling we can help in a hair up appointment.
Did you know?
In the 60s French actress and model Brigitte Bardot made the ponytail a style that cool and chic women could wear too. The ponytail was now transformed from a casual girl's hairdo into a look that was fashionable and sophisticated.
3. Strawberry highlights in 2022
Just want a touch of warm hues in your color this year? Opt for this strawberry highlight look, which will be a major trend in 2022. It’s a soft change that won’t demand getting touch-ups every four weeks. The beauty about this colour is you can control the warmth, be braver and bolder with deeper strawberry reds or play safe with pastel reds. Check out the variations here.. This can be achieved with a full head of highlights.
4. Mid-Length Bob Haircuts for 2022
The '90s will continue strong in 2022. First up: the mid-length bob. Longer than a short bob but shorter than a long bob, this haircut falls somewhere above the shoulder and below the chin and will be a hit for 2022. Ritzy's is seeing a mid-length, blunt, ‘90s-style bob,” Think Kourtney Kardashian's latest chop. This looks great effortless, wet-styled and sleek straight.
5. Bobs With Center Parts for 2022
While we're on the topic of blunt ends, one of our top predictions is the blunt cut, on both short and long hair. If you want to give your hair a fuller, healthier appearance, we recommend a haircut like this that's straight across and all one length, no layers.
6. ‘90s Layers for 2022
But blunt ends aren't all we'll be seeing next year. Long '90s layers will be making a strong comeback, too. A layered haircut is great for adding volume, movement, and shape, and framing the face, so if your current style could use a little bit of all of that, incorporate layers that suit your hair type and texture into your look.
7. Soft, Effortless Curls for 2022
Light, soft, effortless curls. To get the look, Ritzys uses a wider barrel hot tool so that it creates more of a soft wave. Alternatively, try a tighter cord curl with a smaller 22m barrel.
8. Natural, Effortless Hair for 2022
Whether it's French-inspired, effortless hairstyling or natural color, Ritzys loves the idea of less is more for 2022. We are loving the natural take but with an elevated gloss or natural highlight.
What is "lazy hair"?
My definition of "lazy hair" - basically, not wanting to mess with what its doing. Styling it as little as possible, washing it as little as possible, using the least amount of product.
Achieve this with a high-gloss colour treatment to give your natural hair that extra base coat of shine.
Or try the Undone Bun, not just for working from home, a messy bun is a timeless classic, and a welcome antidote to the sleek buns we've been seeing of late. And hairstylists are seeing the return of the trend, too. I think we will also see the return of the messy bun.
9. Long, Sleek Strands for 2022
I see sleek, long, and straight being very big in 2022. If you've been dying to try out the dramatic straight hairstyle, perfect the look with an anti-frizz Keratin treatment.
10. Bouncy Blowouts for 2022
The 90's blow out is the most asked for styling treatment this fall. It’s ideal especially if you have shoulder-length hair. Try adding curtain bangs with a really pretty blowout instead of beach waves. Make room for your jumbo hot rollers and big fat brushes.
Curtain bangs are longer, and their feathered cut creates a messed-up, cool-girl look. This style may look like blunt bangs, but there's a key difference — they're cut into the shape of an arch, rather than being cut straight across. Side bangs sweep across your forehead in an elegant way. While you can get away with leaving curtain-style bangs longer between trims (because of their effortless look), to keep them in shape I would still recommend a trim every 5-6 week. Bangs sit right there on your face so it makes sense to be particular and keep them looking perfect, no matter their length.
11. Slicked Back Strands for 2022
If you like this wet-look hairstyle, do I have good news for you! As far as hair products that'll be trending for 2022, expect to see lots of gels and products for slicked-back looks like this. Great for a night out or work event! Pair along with cute earring.
12. One-dimensional color for 2022
According to our clients, one-dimensional color, like soft black, subtle chocolate brown, or warm ginger, will be knocking our beloved balayage off the top spot and taking over as the go-to hair color trend this winter.
