Like a wave crashing onto the shore, the power of the bob is big for the summer of 2022. The bob has stood the test of time with hair cut at neck level, but in 2022 it is as playful as hairstyles come, From layered to cropped versions, every possibility of bob is ripe for the picking. But since summer is all about the water, we recommend the soft wave bob. With a natural feel and texture to spare, this look is perfect for every day but can also be dressed up.
You can smooth, curl, or wave your hair in less time with The Curve Pro Styling Iron 1”, which will bring life to your soft wave bob. OurHydraHeat™ technology will repel the humidity of summer, reduce frizz, and seal in moisture. Our ergonomic design and tourmaline and magnesium infusion on ceramic plates will leave your hair soft and hydrated!
If you like the idea of a bob but want a little more play, try the boho bob this summer. FHI Heat Educator and stylist Alisha Denis says it best: “The boho bob on textured hair is a cute style for the summer. It’s neck to shoulder length cut with a slightly graduated look. Works well with all style choices from waves to straight or even curly hair.”

Our state-of-the-artHydraHeat™ technology will lock in vital moisture, and the powerful airflow and heated plate will give you a polished finish.
The classic pixie is a very short cut and a fantastic option for those with thick hair. Cropping your hair makes it easier to manage and helps it dry more quickly. You could also give it some dimension with chunky pieces or highlights. According to stylist Alisha Denis, “With hairstyles taking a reach back into different time periods, this 50’s haircut can be dressed up or give you an edgy look. It’s a timeless hairstyle that will never go out of style."

This dryer has a powerful lightweight DC motor that will cut your drying time and 6 different heat and speed combinations. Create a classic pixie look in no time with this powerful dryer.
If your hair is curly or wavy, go for a shag, and the movement and texture of the cut itself will create a very feminine look. FHI Heat Educator Demetris Davis of Agape Salon & Spa says, “When it comes to short haircut trends in 2022, there are several that stand out from the rest, such as the comeback of some of the '80s and ‘90s shag cuts. I think with any great haircut, it should always offer flexibility and easy manageability, also enhancing the shape of the client's face.
If you want a shag haircut without having a tangled mess, try our Fresh Start Protective Prep and Primer - 7.25 oz., which is a leave-in protective treatment to prep your hair for styling. Create an even canvas and equalize your hair’s ability to absorb and retain moisture as you avoid the stretching and breaking that styling often causes.
If you are ready to take the shag to the next level, just combine a short pixie cut with the layers of a shag. This is a great look that’s easy to style, especially in the summer months. You can riff on this look in a wide variety of ways.
Get the exact look you want with our Pump It Up Express Serum - 6 oz, an express blowout serum with a flexible formula. If you’d like to accelerate your blow time and get out the door faster, this is for you. It will also build up body and style in your hair.
This summer, try short cropped bangs, also known as baby or micro bangs, to highlight your face. Although traditional bangs hide your face, these delicate baby bangs will draw attention to your eyebrows and forehead, which is the perfect thing to highlight.
Once you create a beautiful look, you will want it to stay that way. Try our Stay Beautiful Light Hold Dry Hair Spray - 10 oz. to keep those baby bangs exactly where you want them!
