Hair Extension Trends for 2022
Straight & Sleek
Time to dust your straighteners off because they’re about to see a lot more action. The noughties are back for 2022, with a hair trend focus on super straight and sleek, shiny hair. Louise says: “If you’ve been dying to try out a super-long straight hairstyle, this is the year to do it!”
(Extra) Long Lengths
Another big trend for clients will be long hair extensions. “Were getting a lot of requests in the our hair extensions specialist salon Beauty Club London for longer hair extensions.
“Clients usually ask for hair extension lengths ranging rom 18 to 25 inches long (basically hair that hits somewhere between your chest and waist) but since we introduced 30 inch hair extensions and fitted them on the likes of Jemma Lucy and Chloe Khan, girls are wanting extra-long length hair.”
Since hair only grows half an inch-ish a month, the best way to get long length hair easily in 2022 is book your appointment with Hair Extension London specialist Louise Bailey now.
The 90s nostalgia doesn’t stop at straight hair – layers are back in for 2022. According to Louise, 2022 will not only be about the extra-long inches but also about more about layered long-length hairstyles. “Hair will still be nice and thick, though, with lots of layers shown off by a blowout and heavy side parting,” says Louise.
If you’re an existing client and already have the best hair extensions and want to try something different for the new year, ask to have some choppy layers added in to your length to add shags and texture.
One of the looks that never go out of style is the beach waves. The soft and interesting waves are an option that you can wear throughout the entire year but they’re especially popular in the summer months. Styling beach waves at home is much simpler with hair extensions as they mermaid waves stay in untacked for quite some time.
“At Beauty Club London, myself and Moe Harb are seeing a lot of clients opt for tape extensions in lighter colours to add to the texture of the hair and define the beach wave hairstyles without using hair colour,” says Louise.
Bouncy Blow Drys
For a while now, we’ve favoured low maintenance hairstyles which appear artfully undone and effortless, but since the pandemic forced us to stay in, 2022 is all about going out – with a big blow out. “With 2022 comes the return of the big bouncy blow dry,” says Louise.
Great for every hair type, a bouncy blow dry can transform your look in under 20 minutes, allowing you to achieve a texture that’s near impossible with air or natural drying alone. A salon blow dry uses a hairdryer to apply hot air to damp hair, which leaves waves it soft, sleek and frizz-free. Book in for the best blow dry in London for hair extensions at Beauty Club London now.
Whether you have naturally curly hair or not, that’s never going to be an issue when you have the best extensions as they’ll mimic and blend with your natural hair. The new trend of 2022 puts big curls as a forefront look and choice for long hair extensions. Vivid, bold, and seductive, the curls fall from everywhere, making the hair look big and voluminous, without showing off your extensions.
Follow in the hair steps of Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber with baby braids this summer. “Baby braids are perfect for that boho look or festival hair vibe,” says Louise.
“Full on braids don’t always look good on everyone but small baby braids at the front to frame the face suits any hair texture, length or style and can be worn in different ways depending on how you style them.”
Pair baby braids with straight hair extensions, wavy hair extensions, or even more braids this summer 2022.
