Spring is synonymous with change and growth, not just for Mother Nature, but for the rest of us, too. There’s a reason why the season makes everyone feel like cleaning their homes or updating their wardrobes. Spring represents newness and one of our favorite ways to ring in the season is with a hair change – and you don’t have to look far for some inspiration. There’s no shortage of cool spring 2022 hair trends on social media and beyond. “We can thank the girls of Euphoria and the most recent runway shows [for that],” says New York City-based hairstylist Kali Ferrara of The Salon Project.
Style-wise, one thing is very clear: Prepare to revisit the popular haircuts of your (or your mom’s) youth. Retro looks are having a major moment, and that’s especially true of ’90s-inspired hairstyles like flipped-out ends, swoopy updos, and even mullets. The experts we spoke to have been seeing a return to the cuts and shapes we loved so much before the turn of the century, and they’re excited to revive them in a modern way.
As the weather gets warmer and showers come in, a lot of natural texture will be on display due to the humidity, adds Ferrara. Good thing there are plenty of trending hairstyles that embrace that vibe, as well as easy options to get yours to look polished no matter what (hello hair clips, ponytails, and dual buns).
Spring hair colors are bound by no rules but stylists are definitely seeing certain shades pulling ahead this season. For more natural hues, there’s a clear trend toward warmer colors, suggesting that platinum blondes and cool-toned reds may be dipping in popularity. Meanwhile, vivid fantasy colors are still going strong, with celebrities like Hilary Duff and Taraji P. Henson leading the charge.
