As we wrap up 2021, we know we're all preparing for the ‘new year, new me’ to be plastered anywhere and everywhere. Rainbow hair, yellow hair (have you tried our new Lemon shade?), and the amazing tips we all learned for at home hair thanks to Tik Tok- were all huge this past year. Instagram was filled with fun, out there hair all year and we can’t help but wonder.. What’s going to be trending in 2022? Don’t worry kerababes, we did the digging so you didn’t have to! Thanks to Keralove you can be on top of the predicted 2022 trends. The main goal for the new year? Whether it’s a cut, style, or color, the main trend we will notice is to BE BOLD!
Money pieces were a top trend in 2021 and it was a stepping stone to what’s gonna be hot in 2022: High Contrast Color. Bold colors that stand out! If you’re someone who likes dimension, the thicker highlights will be in vs the blended look. No worries, we don’t see those money pieces going out of style just yet! However, the low maintenance look may start to phase out and we predict a lot more Platinum blondes in the near future. The ashy all over blonde is something that will be a big hit, but if you aren’t into blonde don’t worry! Bronde highlights will be on trend or for the non-dimensional peeps: Megan Fox is your new inspo. Dark hair, but not quite black will be a big hit this next year too! Point being: whether your blonde, brunette, or love dimension: Get aggressive with whichever shade you choose and make a statement babe!
The 90’s called and is here to tell you ‘The Rachel’ is back, honey! That’s right, the heavily layered mid length style is going to be hot this next year. Word on the street is that lots of layers will be a top trend in 2022, which also helps to create incredible volume. This is another biggie going into the new year. Flat hair? Girl, bye! 2022 is all about being bigger and better for your goals AND your hair! Shorter hair more your vibe? Bixies are making a comeback and something we predict we will be seeing a lot of. This is a cross between a pixie and bob, think a shorter style bob with you guessed it… layers, layers, layers! Curtain bangs have been super trendy lately and will continue to be seen, but on the heavier side this next year. Thicker bangs will be sneaking back in, but if you can’t pull them off, stick with a thicker curtain bang! Tik Tok taught us that the middle part is way cooler than a side one now, and that it isn't changing in the new year. Rule of thumb for 2022: When consulting with your stylist, keep your cut as trendy as your color: bold and making a statement!
Pantone Color of the Year
Very Peri was announced as the 2022 Pantone Color of the Year and we love to see it! The Pantone website states, “Encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possessing a violet-red undertone, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression.” This is a whole mood for 2022: Being Creative and Bold Expression! Who doesn’t love that?

Prepping for New Year, New Hair
While we predict to see versions of Very Peri inspired hair, you want to be sure you’re prepping your hair the right way! We recommend using our Fade Effect Shampoo with every wash (no more than a few times a week) to help strip any unwanted color you may currently have. Be sure you are conditioning well after each use. Our Purify Plus is a great option to spray in your hair after every wash. This is a leave-in conditioning treatment that will hydrate, restore, and protect your strands! Apply your favorite Keracolor shade and maintain the color in between applications with our Original Clenditioner. To be on trend in 2022, try cocktailing and recreate a Very Peri tone: 2 pumps Purple, 1 pump Blue, 2 pumps Silver. If you want a more diluted tone mix in a couple pumps of our Original Clenditioner!
New Years brings new goals, new mindsets, and NEW HAIR. The biggest takeaway about the upcoming 2022 trends is to remember one thing: BE BOLD! Statement color, statement haircuts, and Very Peri hair are all on the horizon. Are you ready for what 2022 has in store? We have some exciting things planned for you this year and can’t wait to see the amazing hair you always create with our Color + Clenditioners! Don’t forget to tag us in your pics on Insta @keracolorhair for a chance to be featured. Happy New Year Kerababes, Cheers!
