Trending Haircuts Dominating Social Media

As cooler weather settles in across the country you probably find yourself getting excited for cozy nights snuggled up by the fire watching your favorite holiday movies. While this is a great way to usher in wintery weather you can also welcome the change of seasons with a new haircut. Here are some of the most popular haircuts that are currently dominating social media and are being requested by everyone.

The Butterfly Cut

Everyone wants volume and layers this season, and one popular way they’re getting them is with the butterfly haircut. The butterfly cut is a feathered, wispy style with cascading layers that give your tresses lots of movement, closely resembling the fluttering of butterfly wings. Short wispy layers fall around the chin to softly frame your face while longer layers dip below the shoulders keeping the appearance of a long mane. You’ll get plenty of volume and dimension without sacrificing any length.

Fabulous Fringes

Everywhere you look on social media you’ll find people transforming their hairstyle with a fringe. Some of the most popular styles of bangs at the moment are classic long curtain bangs, bold blunt cut bangs, face-framing wispy bangs, side sweeping layered bangs, and edgy micro bangs. No matter what hairstyle you currently have, or are going for, adding a fringe to it is the perfect finishing touch.

Iconic 70s Layers

Celebrities have brought the iconic feathered layers of the 70s back into the spotlight, and they’ve taken social media by storm. The mega volume feathered layers and flipped-out textured ends made popular by style icons such as Goldie Hawn are back with all of their former soft, sexy, and sassy flares.

Middle Part

If you’ve even glanced at social media you’ve seen middle parts taking over all kinds of hairstyles. It would seem that Gen Z is making side parts a thing of the past. They say that the middle parts are flattering for more people and should remain a classic hairstyle staple. And we must admit that a middle part does frame the face quite nicely.

Layered Bodied Bob

This season’s bobs are layered with lots of bodies. This polished cut combines the classic bob length with shorter and longer layers to give your style texture and volume. This is a great cut for those with fine to medium hair that could use a little boost of body.


Requests for a Farrah Fawcett-inspired feathered shag cut have been pouring into the salon. The modern shag is a fantastic cut for those with a little natural texture, but this season there is a spin for curly girls. Heavy, thick layers and bangs give curls that tousled and carefree look without removing so much weight that the coils shrink right up to the scalp. A curly shag has just the right amount of bounce and volume.

Sassy Curls

Long or short curls are in and add a touch of sexy sass to loads of styles this season. From sleek and flowing, to soft and fuzzy, to short and bouncy coils, curls are everywhere. Curls are really making a splash in trendy updos like the high curly bun.

Rachel 2.0

This mid-length layered cut was inspired by Jennifer Aniston in her role as Rachel on the popular 90s sitcom “Friends” is making a comeback this season with a few updates for 2022. Added options like shorter bangs, longer back layers, highlights, and longer overall length allow plenty of room to customize this cut to suit all face shapes and age levels.
