New season means new trends! This summer has so many trends that include nails, make-up, and hair. Warmer weather and lighter clothes means, yes, it’s time for the bright crazy colors and fun pastels to shine. Why not use your nails, make-up, and hair to carry on the summer vibe? Here are a few of the most popular summer trends to try.

Nail Trends

Pastels and Crazy colors

One of the major manicure trends this summer is painting each nail a different color. Why limit yourself to one color when you can have 10 colors at once. If you are bold and colorful then this is your trend this summer. Experiment with different color combinations to decide which ones suit your mood and outfit choice.

If you are more of a retro-type abstract swirl is the summer trend you must try. From groovy swirls to mod-inspired forms, the greatest of the 1960s and 1970s are at your fingertips. No matter what you’re rockin on your fingertips this summer remember to consider your darker skin tone when choosing a shade of nail polish. Coral, pink, turquoise, white, green, yellow, and Very Peri are the hottest colors for summer 2022. These colors will pop against your skin and complete your look. You can’t go wrong with these nail trends, so take the plunge.

Make-up Trends

Statment Blush

If neon eyeliner or eyeshadow is too bold for you, statement blush is an effortless way to spice up your summer makeup look. When used appropriately, bold blush is the cosmetic equivalent of a grin; this upbeat cosmetic trend gives your complexion energy and luminosity and can even produce an aesthetically pleasing lifting effect. Blending, location, color, and formula are crucial for creating the ideal statement blush. Play around with layering various textures and formulas and choose a color that complements your skin tone.

Haircut Trends

90’s layer

From fashion to beauty it seems like everywhere we look it’s the 90s. Inspired by Jennifer Aniston on the TV show Friends, the 90’s layer cut is back! The 90’s layer is a short-layer haircut with curtain bangs. Get a beachy feel with a blowout that gives an amazing amount of volume and movement.

Hair Color Trends

Warm Toned Brunette

Summer is the season for healthy, bright, rich hair that requires little maintenance, which is why warm tone brunette is the summer 2022 hair color. It looks great with every hair texture, cut, and skin tone. Spend more time on the beach and out of the salon with this low-maintenance single color. Don’t have any regrets this summer, ditch the highlights and go for a warm-toned brown.

Pantone Color of the Year 2022

Veri Peri

Very Peri is the Pantone Color of 2022 and it’s perfect for summer. Inspired from nature and wellness with lilac, lavender and periwinkle it brings a calming sense after a very chaotic time. A blend of blues with a violet-red undertone makes this color easy to mix and match with other colors. Very Peri is everywhere so have fun incorporating it into your hair, makeup, nails, and outfit.
