There’s something about spring that makes me want to reassess all my fashion and beauty choices, whether I’m clearing out my winter wardrobe or swapping my heavier makeup base for a lighter option. And when it comes to hair, I feel a specific gravitational pull toward completely new styles, colours and cuts. Whether it’s doing a bouncier blow-dry, working with my natural texture or opting for a different hue, the hair choices for brighter spring days are endless.

I know I’m not alone in wanting to switch things up (or else why would you be browsing this article, right?), so if you’re thinking of changing things up, I spoke to some of the hair-industry experts about the trends you should be aware of for spring 2022. Take note for your next salon visit or styling session.

1. Strong Blondes

Bleaching your hair in anticipation of summer is nothing new, but there is a shift in blondes that’ll be popular for spring 2022 colour appointments. “Blonde hair always makes a comeback for spring,” notes Melissa Timperley, the owner of Melissa Timperley Manchester and an ambassador for Authentic Beauty Concept. “But I think warm vanilla will be the colour of the season. This rich, warm shade not only creates lots of dimension, but it’s an easier colour to pull-off and maintain than platinum blonde.” So if it’s your first time bleaching your locks, this is an easier blonde to go for, as the maintenance between touch-ups is less demanding.
