If the last couple of years focused on embracing natural texture and no-fuss hairstyles (for obvious reasons), 2022 is gearing up to be all that and a little something extra. 
A new year calls for fresh starts of all kinds, making it the perfect time for the latest hair trends to guide us straight to the salon!



 

 

 



 

So if your current hairstyle needs an update, let's help you shake things up!
Here's what we can expect:




The mid-length bob

Longer than a short bob but shorter than a long bob, the mid-length bob sits somewhere above the shoulder and below the chin and is already a BIG hit for 2022!
This seemingly timeless hairdo is relatively low maintenance, and the occasional trim for smooth, blunt edges makes it the perfect no-frills everyday hairstyle.
Products to use:
This Style Cut looks best when fresh, so a trim every six weeks is ideal.
And it is essential to include JUSTICE Professional Protein Detangler Spray or JUSTICE Professional Silver Styling Mousse into your routine for thermal protection and frizz management while leaving your strands soft and sleek.

The shag lives on!
We're not done with the shag yet! 2022 is extending the lease on this Style Cut that has taken the world by storm and has become one of the most popular styles for all genders. Tempted yet?!
Embracing natural waves and movement, the shag is super wearable, works with most hair textures and face shapes and can vary in length, with or without bangs.
Products to use:
Air dry using JUSTICE Professional Curl Crème or using or with a spritz of JUSTICE Professional Sea Salt Spray for definition and movement.

90s layers
Remember Jennifer Aniston in the early seasons of Friends? Welcome back, gurrrrl!
A layered Style Cut is great for adding volume, movement and shape, so if your current style could use a little bit of all of that, ask your Just Cuts Stylist for advice on how to incorporate layers to suit your hair type and texture ... and make sure you have an inspiration pic for reference!
Products to use:
This style is fantastic as it requires minimal styling - just wash, add some JUSTICE Professional Styling Mousse and air dry for texture and ultimate cool-girl hair!
For added volume, try JUSTICE Professional Dry Nutrient Shampoo, which helps open up the hair shaft, keep hair looking fuller, and bring life back to your style in between washes.



Add a bang to your new summer look! 
A good set of bangs never goes out of style … so it's time to perfect your bang styling routine!
The fringe will be 2022's fave! And the beauty of any style of bangs is that it frames your face and adds instant style.
Bangs are on trend and in so many different ways. Soft, textured, blunt or side-swept bangs are a great way to update your look while still keeping the length. 
Products to use:
We recommend using JUSTICE Professional Silver Styling Mousse before blow-drying your hair to add volume and life. Finish with JUSTICE Professional Workable Hairspray to control frizz and flyaways and hold your bangs in place.



Big and bouncy! 

A hair trend taking the new year by storm, the 90's inspired supermodel bouncy blowout. The bigger the hair, the better! 
This style taps into the post lockdown excitement and glamour of not being at home in our activewear!  
Products to use:
For big blowouts, prep hair with JUSTICE Professional Protein Detangler Spray and finish with JUSTICE Professional Firm Hold Hairspray for long-lasting hold, even in the most humid conditions.



The natural do

The pandemic lockdown has resulted in a huge shift to embrace our natural hair texture with as little effort as possible. Whether Afro, curly or wavy, we have welcomed low maintenance styles that can be shampooed and left to either air dry or diffuse dried to enhance our natural texture. When leaving things au Naturelle, the Style Cut is critical, so find a reference photo of a style you love and share it with your Stylist. 
Products to use:
If your hair is naturally curly or wavy, use JUSTICE Professional Curl Crème and leave your hair to dry naturally. Or fake your waves using JUSTICE Professional Sea Salt Spray … just spray, scrunch and go!
If you're already on the journey of embracing your tresses natural texture, you should keep in mind that using a gentle sulphate-free Shampoo like JUSTICE Professional Smooth and Groom Premium ShampooUsed as a duo with JUSTICE Professional Smooth and Groom Deep Conditioner for the ultimate formula.
