We asked our ELEVEN Australia Collective what their predictions were for the rest of the 2022.
Here’s what Annabelle Arnold from @annabelles.hair had to say
“From shows at fashion week to high street stores, loud patterns, vibrant colours and vintage inspired styles are everywhere! Designers are pushing messages like “dopamine dressing” and “you be you”.
I love the idea of using a kaleidoscope of colours and patterns to boost our spirits after a dreary couple of years. Usage of colour therapy also ties in really well with the encouragement of personal authenticity, and the gender neutrality that we’re seeing too!
I’m also excited about the recycling of popular vintage styles, since it has made thrifting and up cycling more popular. Which is a big move towards more sustainable fashion. We are seeing these trends translate into hairdressing with the re-emergence of popular 60s, 70s and 90s haircuts/ up dos. Modernised by the vivid or lived in colours that are popular today.”
We also spoke to hair stylist and ELEVEN Australia Collective member Hayley Penny from @hayleypennyhairstylist about her 2022 trend predictions. Read on to see what she had to say…
Hayley predicts that fashion trends such as; cut-outs, colour blocking, dopamine dressing, mini skirts, biker jackets, oversized volumous sleeves & silhouettes will be very prominent in 2022.
Hayley advised that these trends translate into the world of hair through styles such as disconnected fringes, moving away from 70’s bangs to a more prominent fringe shape.
Strong panels of colour blocking in fashion, means that softer, natural, simplistic tones through out the hair, with a face frame or under panel are likely to be a look that many clients come into the salon looking for this year.
Hayley also predicts that full shiny, bouncey, voluminous blowouts, and away from the face styles will be in for 2022. As well as, slick and wet looks, with high shine, and all over muted natural glossy tones. With gold ash blondes, over silvers, and cool coppers blended through matte browns, will be the colours of choice.
Salons will also be more focused on being environmentally and socially responsible, whilst also offering more all gender neutral styles & services.
