Graphic Colors

Bright, bold colors like Kacey Musgraves’ pink aren’t going anywhere. Also expect to see more shades of periwinkle inspired by the 2022 Pantone color of the year, Very Peri.

Overtone Vibrant Magenta Coloring Conditioner

A color-depositing conditioner can give you a new hue in about 20 minutes, although results will vary depending on your starting shade.

3

Half-Up

Jodie Turner-Smith and hairstylist Ursula Stephen killed this half-up, half-down look. The key is to create tons of volume without sacrificing that ultra-glossy finish.

4

Hair Oil Everyday Gloss

This silicone-free oil adds lightweight shine and gloss to hair without weighing it down. Use it to finish a look like Turner-Smith’s or on wet hair before you style. 

5

Gorgeous Grey

Going grey has always been a sign of aging beautifully, and since the pandemic, more and more women are choosing to forgo that trip to the colorist. Case in point: Andie McDowell, who showed off her natural look on the red carpet.

This strengthening, antioxidant-rich shampoo is formulated just for grey and white hair.

Return to the Dark Side

If former bleach blondes Billie Eilish and Katy Perry are any indication, dark brunette hair might just be the new platinum.

John Frieda Midnight Brunette Color Deepening Shampoo

Preserve deep color (real or otherwise) with this shampoo made with primrose oil and real cocoa.

Smooth and Sleek

This year is all about hair so shiny you can practically see your reflection, like Cindy Bruna’s.

Dyson Corrale Hair Straightener

Dyson’s straightening iron achieves the ultra-smooth look at a lower heat level, with zero frizz—plus, it’s cordless.

11

Shaggy Layers

The latest iteration of the shag cut involves tons of choppy layers, like Squid Game star HoYeon Jung’s enviable style.

Tresemme Premium Styling Dry Texture Finishing Spray

With the right cut, a little dry texture spray is all you need.

13

Hot Girl Side Bangs

This isn’t your middle school side bang. For the 2022 take, take a cue from Megan Thee Stallion and incorporate volume for a glam—not flat—look that frames the face.

14

Moroccanoil Ceramic Brush

Blow out side bangs with a ceramic round brush for optimum shape and shine.

15

Make like Selena Gomez and go for a dramatic chin-length haircut. Blunt, choppy, wavy—all bobs are welcome.

16

Get the Look

This frizz-fighting styling cream protects against heat damage and won’t weigh down finer hair types.

Supermodel Blowouts

The voluminous ‘90s runway blowout is most definitely back in play, that is if celebs like Olivia Wilde have anything to say about it.

18

T3 AireBrush Duo Interchangeable Hot Air Blow Dry Brush

A blowout brush like this one from T3 can help achieve the wavy, I-just-came-from-the-salon look at home. It comes with interchangeable brushes for easy styling, too.

Twisted Topknots

The latest take on the timeless topknot has loose ends—in a good way. Try a look like Madelyn Cline’s for your next wedding or evening affair.

U-shaped pins help keep the look in place, and are easier to use than bobby pins.
