Ringing in the New Year calls for fresh starts of all kinds, making it the perfect time for new hair trends to help guide us to the salons! We're taking last year's low-maintenance styling up a notch with statement-making cuts, colours and styles that do all the work for you.

If you've been wanting to make a chop, hairstylist Janet Jackson breaks down all the styles you'll be seeing this year in the video clip above.  You can also find all of the trends she highlighted below. 

Highlights

During the fall and winter seasons, the copper colour has been really trendy! But going into 2022, it's time to update this copper vibe. Toasted caramel highlights are a beautiful mix of copper, auburn, and caramel, which will give your hair more dimension and a richer feel. And the best part? Warm shades generally require less maintenance, so look good with minimal effort! 

Curly hair highlights

If you have a curly crown, adding colour to your hair may seem daunting. Apart from the damage permanent dye can do to your pattern, the placement of highlights may be different compared to those with straighter hair types. Highlighted curls can look incredible on curly hair and add beautiful depth and dimension. Just remember it's important to go to a hairstylist that understands how to do this process properly. 

Long ombré

Ombré has been around for a while, and it doesn't look like it's going anywhere anytime soon. It is a hair colouring technique that starts out darker at the roots and gradually gets lighter towards the ends. The long ombré is just another version, where the colour extends closer to the root area. If you are currently growing out your highlights, you're halfway there to getting this look. With this grow-out, you're adding more colour to the ends of your hair. 

Cuts and styles 

The bixie

One part bob, one part pixie. The key to rocking this short, choppy style is texture. Really embrace the undone look by using a texturizing spray that can help achieve that raw texture. 

The shoulder-length shag

The shaggy layered look is everywhere right now, in all kinds of lengths. It works great with any hair texture and length, with or without bangs because it's defined by its layers. 

Heavy layers

Layers, layers and more layers! With gradual face-framing layers around the face, this heavily-layered cut could be worn on different hair textures, from fine to coarse hair. This low-maintenance look is great for those who want an update but don't want to make a major commitment.
