Hello, 2022! It’s a brand new year, fresh with possibilities—and that applies to your beauty routine too. If you get the itch to refresh and reinvent yourself come January 1, you’ve come to the perfect place. We’re all about that “new year, new you” feeling, so if you’re ready for a change or looking for a spark of inspiration for your hair color, cut, makeup or skincare, here are the beauty trends of 2022 that we’re most excited about and a few ways we can work together to make your new year dreams come true.
The skincare train shows no signs of stopping in 2022. It’s about finding a few key products that work for you and using them regularly, as well as making regular facials and spa treatments a priority in your self-care routine to really bring out your glow. In Minnesota, we’re also dealing with cold, windy winter weather and wearing masks; hydrating, calming skincare products are key to keeping your face happy and healthy so you can emerge like a beautiful butterfly come spring.
If you feel like your skincare routine needs a makeover, the best place to start is with a pro. When you book a spa service with one of our estheticians, they’ll help you identify which products are best for your skin type and how to reach your skincare goals, from luxurious masks to invigorating scrubs and serums.
This year, we’re feeling the classics. Brunettes should try a more lived-in twist on balayage with darker tones than you’re used to, a la Hailey Bieber. If you prefer an all-over color, give in to your dark side and opt for an espresso color for a bit of drama. Blondes soften from icy tones to more creamy, buttery vanilla shades that are flattering and flirty on all skin tones. Giving your go-to shade a little twist or tweak keeps you feeling like yourself, but enhanced.
Did you hear the 2000s are back in style? We’re leaving a lot of those hair trends in the past, but we do have a soft spot for the “money piece” popularized by Ginger Spice. For 2022, we’re all about that pop of brightness framing your face. It’s a simple way to add a bit of life to your hair color and overall look without totally revamping your shade and a fun way to channel a trend without throwing it back to 2001.
Since we’re still wearing masks in public, major makeup trends continue to be focused on the eyes. They are the windows to the soul, after all. We’ve seen celebrities and runways experimenting with bright, graphic winged liner in vibrant neon shades. More dramatic colors like green and purple are becoming more popular too, whether they’re blended out for a sheer wash of color or applied heavily for a statement look. Want to dip a toe into the color trends? Consider swapping your go-to black or brown liner for a bright blue or creating a soft cat-eye look with an out-of-the-box shade like lilac or pink.
To get any of these looks or to simply indulge and start the year off strong and refreshed—book your new year service today.
