No-Nonsense Haircuts To Bring In 2022

December 7th, 2021 | by

If this year was all about embracing the real appearances and no-fuss hairdos, 2022 hair trends are set to be all of that and a little more. New year encourages new beginnings of all kinds, making it the ideal time for new hair trends to drive us straight to the salon. There are shaggy layers, blunt fringes, and retro styles just waiting to shine! 

We’re taking low-maintenance minimal styling to the next level with statement-making cuts that do all the work — only the fashionable ones, of course. If you’ve been wanting the best haircuts of 2021 for every hair type, it’s time to end the year with a… bang!

There is something about short haircuts, from shaggy lobs to pixies to bobs, that have a windy, carefree vibe that we can’t get enough of, no matter the season. But if your hair is the crowning glory you can’t let go, we’re also talking about modern twists on vintage bobs, bangs, and the list goes on! There’s always something here for everyone! Read on for some of the hottest haircuts for every hair type.

1. The Lob

The Lob, a play on the long bob, is a versatile hairstyle. It promises to suit all hair types and to radiate femininity. The chic yet fun Lob can go from ultra-modern to vintage belle in a split second! Whatever your personal style is, there’s a lob for you.

To catch the eye and stand out, this hairstyle uses vibrant complementary colors like burnt caramel (bright orange and sun-kissed yellow) if you’re looking to add that extra oomph. A runway-ready look would include a delightful melon wash on the eyes and glossy lips to go with it.

2. Asymmetrical bob

Another elegant bob haircut is the asymmetrical bob, which as the name suggests, is short in the back and long in the front. If you want to make a statement with your hair without doing much, this is the hairstyle for you.

While it may appear to be for the brave-hearted, consider the image below for reference. The length (long or short) can be adjusted to suit your requirements. An asymmetrical bob cut can instantly make you look younger too.

3. Classic Pixie

Looking for something simple but adorable? A pixie haircut is a great option for the hot season. It’s a blessing for people who don’t want to spend hours doing their hair. You can either go for the classic pixie or spice things up a little by opting for different pixie cut styles such as bob pixie cut, balayage pixie, and so on.

A pixie haircut is also a boon if you are experiencing hair loss or have damaged hair. The biggest pro is that it’s easy to manage and quite effortless. Celebs such as Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and Cara Delevigne have all rocked this look in the past.

4. Asymmetrical Short Pixie

This is something worth bringing into the next year because clearly, we haven’t gotten enough of it. Play up the texture and layer upon layer with an asymmetrical pixie, a short cut with a deep part, a long side-swept fringe, and a sleek side or undercut near the temple.

You’ll be able to create a hairstyle with a lot of lift and volume without going entirely simple and basic. We love us some unconventionality, don’t we?

5. Transition Shag

This particular cut is easy, breezy, and everything a fine-haired gal needs to live her best life this year. It’s not quite a shag, not quite a classic bob. Curtain bangs are the best low-maintenance fringe option for enhancing any short haircut. The shag is back in the prominent trends of the year.

Rather than being delicate with layers, we believe in “the more the merrier” here. The key feature that distinguishes a shag is the layering around the crown, the sides, and the front to get that volume closer to the roots. The more extreme the look, the shorter the layers are. In any case, you want them to be more choppy and visible here to add texture.

6. Mia Wallace Bob

This theme from Pulp Fiction is iconic in its own right. It’s now your turn to make a statement. This blunt bob cut with a straight fringe has been a personal favorite of fashionistas and beauty enthusiasts since the 1990s, thanks to the character Mia Wallace from the cult classic film who lives in your heart rent-free.

This is a popular style, with everything from Halloween costumes to wigs being worn. Those with the right hair type are even getting the cut, and it is well worth it because this style is timeless.

7. Internal Layers

This one is usually suggested to keep everything soft with no hard lines and no blunt straight across cuts, for the most natural-looking movement, while also retaining your length at the back. Concentrate on wispy, invisible ghost layers. 

P.S  Always request a pointcut from your stylist to remove only weight, allowing you to keep your length while removing bulk. When the layers fall, this allows it to move and gives it life. The layers should not be visible within the haircut; instead, they should blend in and aid in styling, adding interest and movement to your hair. The added benefit is that it requires little effort and upkeep.

8. 3A Curls

If you are blessed with luscious curls and are unsure how to style them, the good news is that curly hair is extremely versatile. Springy curls with an S-shape pattern and a lot of volume and movement, are referred to as 3A curls.

They look stunning when left loose, but they can also be styled in a half-up, half-down look for a more polished finish. The only con of this hair type is that it is prone to frizz, which must be avoided by keeping it hydrated. This is possible with regular protein treatments.

9. Curtain Bangs

It’s no secret that bangs, whether they’re fringe or curtain bangs, can completely transform a hairstyle. This is especially true for people who have round faces. Bangs can take the attention away from the widest part of the face, the jawline. They can also draw more attention to some of your best facial features, such as your eyes and cheekbones.

Just keep in mind that they do require some maintenance in the form of frequent trims and styling to achieve the desired volume. But a simple blow-dry after every wash will keep the cut and style intact.

10. Paper-cut Bob for thin hair

We’re all beginning to feel motivated to end the year with a bang or, in some cases, a bob. This is a versatile style to choose for fine hair that lacks body because of its classic and flattering finish. A super-blunt bob, also known as the paper-cut bob, has hair cut into a razor-sharp line with no layer insight and is always a safe bet.

This style is not only super trendy; but it could also be a tremendous way to reset hair if you’ve been wearing long layers or experimenting with ombré or dip-dyed ends, creating a beautiful blank canvas.

Furthermore, if you have thin or fine hair, the blunt edge will create an optical illusion, making your hair appear thicker and more lustrous. A blunt bob will make the strands appear fuller, while the short length will keep the hair from looking too weighed down or flat.

11. Face-Framing Layers

Face-framing layers have been the most popular salon request in the last year, and for good reason. A center portion with long pieces, or long layers around the face if you want to narrow out the facial structure, is the most flattering hairstyle for those with round faces. When the hair is pulled back into a ponytail or bun, these can be left out around the face.

This hairstyle can be worn with any length of hair. We’re not trying to hide the round, but rather to frame it so that people can be both delighted and pleased while looking good with whatever shape their faces take. Anything that adds fringing or layering to the face will achieve exactly this.

12. Invisible Layers

While the term “layers” may evoke memories of a choppy cut that requires a great deal of styling, the technique has been revamped in recent years and is now much less time-consuming.

“Invisible layers” are the secret to adding that cool without trying to factor your new hairstyle in a completely modern way, with no harsh layers in sight. The most recent variation of layering is a slight angle around your face, usually beginning around your chin and working down to the length.

The key is to keep the layers long and seamless in order to remove weight while also adding texture and volume without looking too obvious. Blending the layers is critical—they must be cut correctly to appear seamless.

13. Red Long Layered Hair

Red hair is one of the most uncommon natural hair hues, and those who choose to embrace the rich hue, stand out. After all, who can forget the coloring binge we had last year? This one has taken its place for a reason. The color scheme looks great on fair and light skin tones and can draw attention to your hair while also recognizing its natural texture.

A layered look is a great way to remove weight from the hair, make thin hair appear thicker, and add movement and volume. Layering can be done on a variety of textures and lengths of hair. You and your stylist can collaborate to find the best look for you, giving your hair shape and definition.

Come rain or shine, the fashion pack appears to be out in full force this year, serving fire looks from color blocking and ’60s glamour to clashing prints and brocade. But it’s the haircut trends and low-maintenance hairstyles that we’re obsessed with. Natural textures, blunt bobs, or full fringes are all options. Finding the ideal one to capture a few Instagram-worthy hair movements is secondary, but your comfort comes first.
