Hair Contouring Is the Face-Framing Hack That Will Dominate 2022

Money piece highlights may be taking over your Instagram feed, but hair contouring is a slightly more subtle way to frame your face.

Yes, contouring is a makeup technique that adds dimension to your face by using makeup that is slightly darker and lighter than your actual skin color to accentuate specific features. Unlike foundation and concealer which we want to match our skin, contouring is all about creating the effect of shadow and light.

But did you know that you can contour your hair as well? Hair contouring is the latest hair trend that is guaranteed to be all the rage in 2022, according to celebrity hairstylist and European Creative Director for evo hair, Tom Smith.

“The famous Money Piece hair trend is back with a modern twist," Smith says. "In 2022, it will evolve into the ‘Hair Contour.’ Instead of clusters of highlights, hair contouring uses a softer-contrast lighter shade, painted around the face in a soft color block, incorporating all the hair directly around the face including the shorter baby hairs.”
