Our Top 4 Hair Trends Of 2022

This year we are seeing a lot of ‘what was old is new again’ with a flash back to the 80’s and 90’s with some iconic haircuts and accessories, thrown in with some hot hair colour trends which will keep you all warm and fuzzy inside.

1. The Modern Mullet

Mullet mayhem is everywhere you look, especially with the younger generation and we have a few celebrities such as Miley Cyrus and Rihanna to thank for it.

The modern mullet, if done right can help frame the face and be less severe than the classic mullet. It is all about finding the right length, and embracing the ‘business in the front, party in the back’ concept. If you are after a bold, tough, and mischievous look that is sure to turn heads, the modern mullet might be for you.

To add more texture and volume into your mullet, RPR Australia recommend pumping RPR Boost My Volume onto your roots and rubbing until the desired look is achieved. This modern transparent styling powder will provide you with further texture and body into your signature do.

2. Flash Back Hair Accessories

This year we have seen a steep rise in the number of old school hair accessories making their way into the fashion scene. Large satin scrunchies, thick headbands, and jumbo claw clips are the hot ticket items every girl wants in their beauty bag.

Celebrities such as Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber are bringing back the late ‘90s/early 2000s’ hair vibes and we are loving it. They are simple, stylish, affordable and can turn any bad hair day into a good one.

To help tame fly aways, you can pump 2-3 drops of RPR Fix My Frizz Serum into the palms of your hands and lightly gliding it across the top of your hair. This will add additional gloss and help seals and smooth away any fly aways & frizz, adding to the sleek, fussy free look.

3. Warm, Rich Hair Colours

In 2022 we have seen a rise in people wanting to add warmth back into their hair colour. Everything from toasted caramel to warm chocolate brown, people are adding a warm modern twist into the classic colours, to give their hair a deep, rich, and multi-dimensional feel.

To ensure the longevity of your hair colour make sure you invest in a professional colour care range such as the RPR Extend My Colour, RPR Love My Colour or SO Essential shampoo and conditioner range. This will help extend the life of your colour while also providing your hair with hydration, strength, and shine.

4. The Octopus Haircut

Never heard of it before, well, let us introduce you to the latest hair trend sweeping the celebrity scene – The Octopus haircut. It’s a combination of the shaggy mullet and the iconic ‘Rachel’ haircut from the 90’s.

It is characterised by volume and shorter layers at the top to help create a concave look, followed by a lot of long layers, or tentacle, giving off the octopus vibe. Celebrity such as Billie Eilish have got the look down pat.

It’s all about working with your hair instead of against it and is best suited to people with naturally straight or wavy hair. So, if you are after a no-fuss hair style but still with plenty of style, this might be the ones for you.

To add additional nourishment and volume into your locks try adding some SO Magic our leaving in styling treatment into damp hair and then letting your hair dry naturally or style as required. Your hair will love the extra nourishment, anti-frizz properties and not to mention it smells amazing!

So, 2022 is all about revamping and adding a modern twist to many iconic looks, and also hair accessories. It will have you reminiscing about your childhood and the good old days where butterfly clips and the hit show Friends were all the rage.
