It’s time to prepare for a new year. For many, it’s the perfect time for a fresh start and to reinvent yourself – through lifestyle, fashion, or even your hairstyle.
There are so many different hairstyles out there and it can be hard to choose a that suits you and your own personal style.
So to help you out (and save you some time), we’ve put together a list of short, mid-length, and long hairstyle options that are bang on trend for 2022.
2002’s show hair trend is all about more fluid, romantic and textured styles.
Yes, you can still get a buzzcut, but we are moving away from those blunt or overtly sharp styles. So if you plan on leaving a bit of length at the top, try working in more texture for a relaxed look.
How about one of these short length hairstyles?
- Justin Bieber’s Tousled Caesar Cut with Choppy Fringe: Justin Bieber‘s Caesar Cut at the Met Gala was not only a great way to grow out a buzz cut, but it brings that 90s favourite bang up to date.
- Tom Daley’s Soft Caesar Cut: No sign of chlorine damage on Tom Daley’s hairstyle – a soft caesar cut. In fact the Team GB Diver and Olympic gold medal winner doesn’t need to execute the perfect twisting dive to impress us – because his carefully tousled hairstyle is red carpet perfection.
- Raheem Sterling’s Tapered Afro With Low Fade: Raheem Sterling’s tapered Afro with low fade is a champion look for one of footballing’s national treasures.
Ditch the massive quiff and pomp for 2022 because it’s all about the soft, flowy medium-length hairstyle.
Just like the shorter cuts, these mid-length hairstyles are all about effortless texture. Aim for a style with effortless movement to really keep up with the trend.
- Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mid-Length Swept Back Hairstyle: Actor Jake Gyllenhaal’s hair is the kind of enviably thick, shiny, stylish thatch we’d sell our Playstation 5 for. If there was an Oscar for Best Hollywood Hair, Jake would take a little gold fella home every year.
- Oliver Cheshire’s Medium Length Quiff: In this red carpet shot, model Oliver Cheshire’s medium length quiff hairstyle is just the right side of polished – with a side order of slightly tousled.
- Harry Styles’ GRAMMY Awards 2021 Hairstyle: Harry Styles is the personification of effortless cool. Performing (and winning!) at the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards, Harry perfectly paired a leather suit and feather boa with his flawlessly coiffed curls.
- Jaden Smith’s Afro Hair Medium Twists With Fade: The actor and musician Jaden Smith is the ultimate hair chameleon. Well, if you’re Will Smith’s son you’ve got to find a way to stand out, no? This is one of his more classic, natural looks. Smith has experimented with hairstyles over the years, but he currently rocks the fade with his natural twists and we’re all for it.
Letting loose is the theme of longer length hairstyles. It’s less about slicking all your hair back into a ponytail or manbun and more about keeping it loose and lived in. So, if a more dishevelled look is your thing, then here’s a style for you!
- Jared Leto’s Long Tousled Hairstyle:We’ve come to expect actor Jared Leto’s long, tousled hairstyle to always look the business on the red carpet. And the age-defying star hasn’t disappointed us here while on the promo trail for his new film, House of Gucci.Because he’s worth it, right?
- Austin Butler’s Long Beachy Hairstyle: Austin Butler‘s hairstyle is the perfect example of how a sea salt spray can work wonders for long hair. This beachy loose-wave hairstyle looks effortless on him.

- Jay-Z’s Freeform Dreadlocks With Congos: Jay-Z’s freeform dreadlocks are as cool and iconic as the man himself. Plus, it’s great to see celebs embracing natural hair looks like this.
