The b.LUXE beauty beat TRENDING - Summer 2022

By Gina Woelfel
Are you looking for summer’s trending hairstyles? Look no further! b.LUXE has the hottest styles for Summer 2022! Whether you’re looking for something sleek and sophisticated or fun and flirty, our stylists have got you covered!
An increasingly vaccinated population means 2022 will likely see more of us frequenting our favorite hairstylists. There’s no better time to freshen up your look like the start of a season! 
Maybe it’s time to switch up your hair’s style or color? A new hairstyle acts like an announcement to both yourself and the outer world that something in you is shifting. With so many of us feeling a bit more social freedom returning to our lives, freshening up our aesthetic feels perfectly timed. 
After two years of keeping things low maintenance, people are ready to show more effort and try new looks like sleek, straight styles, tight ponytails, and braids.
We’re so excited for this style swing. Although many of our clients are still keeping their looks lived-in and easy, people are shaking off their pandemic hair and trying out bolder, more adventurous trends! 
What does summer 2022 have in store for you? Fringe, fros, mullets and bobs! Kinda 70’s, kinda 80’s, with a little 90’s tossed in for good measure. It’s all about embracing our natural hair texture and boosting the oomph we’ve got! These shaggy styles are a definite mix of effortless effort and can be hyper-tailored to your hair type and desired aesthetic. 
Ultra short styles and super long layers are both making an appearance, too! We’ve definitely seen an uptick in our pixie, buzz cuts, undercuts and clipper art!  The “Big Chop” is a thing! People are ready to let it all go and why not! Short hair cools things down for summer’s hot, humid weather and adding a graphic design to your barely-there buzz shows your fun and creative side! A Pixie isn’t for everyone, but short hairstyles can be customized to flatter everyone’s features and face-shape. 
Many of our clients have not had their hair cut for two years and have grown attached to their Rapunzel-like locks. But, extreme length can be a drag for the four hottest months of the year. Consider lightening your one-length-wonder with layers. Adding a few layers to extremely long hair builds volume and texture! With a few strategic snips, long layers frame the face and give hair bounce and play. 
The “Bob Haircut” might be “THE” cut of the summer. Popularized by the film stars of the 1920’s, it was seen as a shocking statement of independence in young women known as flappers, as older generations were still used to seeing girls in long dresses and heavy Edwardian-style hair. Now roaring its way through this century’s second decade, this classic has stood the test of time and with endless versatility, there’s a “Bob” for everyone. Previously  a pretty straightforward, shoulder-length, blunt cut, now we have the “Long Bob” the “Shaggy Bob”, the “Stacked Bob” and even a “Messy Bob”. The variations are endless and with bangs or no bangs, this classic is a flattering change for those looking to lighten up and modernize. 


Behold the braid revival! (And space buns, too!  Ugh.) We LOVE our braid work at b.LUXE! If you have a special event on the books, consider working a braid through your hair. They’re fun and best of all, practical. Nothing keeps your style in place through sweaty nights of dancing like a braid. And space buns? Well, whatever. You do you…
Oh, and bangs…SOO many bangs!  We’re here for the cut and we’re here for the grow out. And please, please, please (with sugar on top) don’t cut them yourself! NO HOME BANG TRIMS, Ladies! We know you’re watching all those twist + snip Tik Tok videos and we’re here to say that, more often than not, you’ll look like your elementary school photo, (you know the one where your mom cut them too short!). Be it fringe, curtain, bottleneck, or wispy, bring your bang requests to the professionals. You’re welcome in advance.  
We can’t wait to hear all about your style desires! Bring your comments on over to our Facebook or Instagram page (scan the QR code above to follow along) For your inspo, our beautiful cuts and colors are posted daily. 
Summer 2022 is your season to fly, butterflies!
