Summer is here and it’s the perfect time to change up and revamp our look for the new season.

With the sun out, it’s also a great time for us to step away from the heated styling tools, embrace our natural hair texture and experiment with low maintenance, effortless looks to avoid more damage being done to our hair, whilst giving our look fun, summer feel.

Here are my predictions on what will be the hottest haircuts and styling trends this season…

Haircuts

Blunt bobs – For those who want a chic summer look the blunt bob is perfect. The great thing about this style is that it can be styled more polished and sleek or more messy and effortless, depending on your preference. If your hair is coloured, styling your bob sleek is a great way to really show off and enhance your hair colour. This haircut works particularly well for those with thin hair, giving the appearance of more volume. However, this cut generally looks great on everyone. The style can also be tailored to suit the individual, for example, for those with round face shapes who may want to give their face shape a more elongated look, the bob can be taken a little longer in length. Contrastingly, those with oval face shapes may want to wear their bob a little shorter. Fringes also look incredible teamed with this cut and can give the look a further on trend finish. If you want to draw attention away from your forehead, incorporating a fringe into this cut is a great idea.

Mullets – for those who like a longer, more textured and effortless looking cut, the mullet is a fantastic choice and is one of the most talked about trends this year. The key with this look is having it shorter on top and longer at the back, however, for 2022 we are seeing a more modern approach with the cut including softer layers and the addition of face framing and fringes to give the look a softer appearance and a fresh feel. This is a great haircut choice for those who want to do little to no styling to their hair, as it can instantly be given a sexy finish by misting through some salt spray and scrunching it into your hair.

Styling

Texture – textured looks will become a major trend this season with textured, beach like waves being one of the most prominent textured hairstyling trends. This look can easily be created by using a texture spray or mousse in damp hair and scrunching it into the hair before leaving to air dry. However, if you’re looking to create a more ‘s’ like wave, hair wavers are a great tool to use to help create this look before finishing off with a volume or texturising spray to give the style a more gritty, effortless appearance, as well as hold. My must have texturising spray is the Matrix Texture Builder Messy Finish Spray.

Effortless updos – during summer we all want our hair out of our faces and this can be easily achieved with effortless updos. Think braids, low slung buns and pinned updos that take all of the hair back off the face and that suit the laid back, summer vibe. Use silk or satin hair ties instead of regular hair ties to help you create you updos, which are gentler on your hair and won’t cause friction.

Defined curls – summer 2022 is the year to embrace your natural hair texture and show off your gorgeous curls in all their glory. A hair diffuser is great for taking away frizz and flyaways in curly hair and giving curls more definition, however, there are also so many fantastic curl products that can be used in your hair to help create a similar look whilst giving your curls more body and shine. The Matrix Total Results A Curl Can Dream Defining Gel is one of my favourites.
