Hot Upcoming Men’s Hairstyle Trends For 2022

With so many trending hairstyles emerging in 2021 already, you’ll be thrilled to find out which haircuts are set to be popping off in the upcoming year.

A new chapter is set to start in 2022 and brings along fresh ideas for men’s hairstyles. Since gender-fluid looks are on the rise, expect to see shags, mullets, ‘90s curtain hairstyles, and a mix of the extremes, long or super short hair.

From daring cuts to bold colors and all sorts of lengths and styles, men’s beauty is taking a trip on the wild side. Inspired by the ’90s era, the next season will give you sweet nostalgia. Ahead, keep scrolling to discover the biggest hair trends for men that will dominate in 2022.


One of the most iconic men’s hairstyles of the ’80s aka the mullet is still going strong in 2022. This look is all about business at the front, party at the back!

If you find yourself on the more wild side and you like experimenting with new haircuts, then this is for you. Short at the front, shorter at the sides, and long at the back, the mullet hairstyle stands out for its eye-catching shape and laidback vibe.

For a more refined take, ask for a mullet with a low fade at the sides, or if you’re bold enough embrace neon colors and acid pops in shades of lime green, magenta, and blue. Having bright-colored hair can be approved far easy to style up with neutral outfits.

Buzz Cut

In many SS/2022 fashion shows, designers gave us a little taste of the new upcoming grooming trends, including buzz cuts in many versions. You can go for a buzz fade, shorter on the top and fade up into the sides or try geometric lines in the front and/or on the sides.

This is a great choice if you have thin hair or you’re starting to bald and you want a no-fuss haircut with minimal effort. When you have a buzz cut, it’s actually a nice way to grow a little bit of stubble beard on your face to balance out the short haircut.

Again, for all the trend-conscious men who want to add more interest to their hairstyle, a great option is to dye the buzzed hair in pastel hues or vivid colors. But remember it’s important to maintain the color to avoid getting brassy.

Bro Flow

The bro flow is still gaining popularity and is injecting a new kind of attitude into men’s hair. It is suitable for men with thick medium-length hair, who want a low-maintenance hairstyle.

Giving a relaxed and rugged vibe, the classic bro flow tends to feature waves that curl back off of the face and neck. Especially, if your natural hair is a bit wavy, this haircut will look great on you!

However, if you don’t have wavy hair, you can create this look using a sea salt spray or texturizer.

Natural Curls!

The next season of 2022 is all about embracing a more natural look to an otherwise classic hairstyle. Men with natural curls can show how cool and sexy curly hair can be.

Whether you prefer short sides and back and curly hair on top or a curly hair mullet, remember to build volume up top.

Rudolph Valentino

Coming from the 1920s, this hairstyle was very popular back then. Took his name from the Italian-American actor and fashion icon Rudolph Valentino, who kept his hair back, tight and ultra-glossy, whipped up into a perfect side parting.

A modern take on this hairstyle, it’s a shortcut with a side or a middle dramatic parting that will make you look super neat and polished. If you have strong features, this may be the perfect hairstyle for you for 2022.


The men’s shag hairstyle is predicted to be huge in 2022. Coming in different variations, from short, long, layered, or tousled, with bangs, waves, curls, or sideburns.

Famous celebs and rockstars of the ’70s embraced this hairstyle because of its effortlessly cool retro feel, among others David Bowie, Bob Dylan, and Mick Jagger.

A shaggy hairstyle can be short or reach the shoulders with lots of layers. It’s ideal for men with wavy or curly hair, as the layers create a flattering shape and add movement.
