It may be 2022, but we are jetting back to the noughties as sleek, Y2K hair is set to dominate looks this year. From the glossy, waist-length locks seen at the S/S22 Versace runway show on the likes of it girls Dua Lipa and Emily Ratajkowksi to the classic bob.
With the antics of the past couple of years leading many to abandon styling tools and allow their hair to do as it pleases, this year is all about highly maintained, polished glam.
Get the look with The Bey Lace Frontal Wig. This deep centre-parted wig offers 40 inches of bone straight, sleek glam and is available in three gorgeously warm shades.

Love them or loath them, low rise pants are back. Nostalgia is a key theme running through this years trends and what is more nostalgic than low-slung trousers and micro miniskirts once sported in every iconic 90’s and 00’s music video and now given new life thanks to the likes of Bella Hadid. Whether opting for thong-revealing flares, elevated sweatpants or low rise cargos, there is something for everyone this season.

Dramatic eye makeup dominated the runway at S/S 22 shows and makeup in 2022 is set to be bright, fun and playful. At Laquan Smith, winged eyes were embellished with glitter and rhinestones for a show stopping look and at Versace, makeup mogul Pat McGrath created lime green shimmering looks finished with turquoise liner. It looks like this year we will be ditching our usual
nude, smoky eye in favour of something a little more adventurous.
