TREND REPORT 2022: ‘HAIR ENAMELING’
With Fashion week in full swing, not only are we eyeing the latest fashion trends ready to take inspo for our 2022 fall wardrobes, we are of course focusing on the hair trends too!
One standout trend that has been spotted by industry experts has been coined ‘hair enameling’ which takes past hair trends like ‘French Glossing’ and ‘Hair Glazing’ even one step further. This look is similar to the wet look trend which is frequently seen on the likes of Megan Fox and Kim Kardashian. Fun Fact, it was reported that Megan Fox’s hair stylist used lube to achieve her look at last year's VMA’s - since then, we’ve seen so many TikToks on how to recreate this iconic look. But thankfully, now there are more was to replicate the look with actual hair products…
Hair enameling creates the perfect look for both casual and dressy occasions - the perfect hairstyle if you want to try something low-key but still look like you’ve made the effort!
The enameling look is all about achieving a slicked back, glossy style that almost looks luminescent. When done right, you will achieve an edgy look that will be the talk of your social circle and will provide an enviable, instagramable shot!
The great thing about this style is that you can truly be experimental. You may want to try adding a few wispy strands across your hairline similar to brand Altuzarra for added detail, or for something different, a sleek ponytail look similar to the looks seen at the Nensi Dojaka show.
This look is set to be huge for the summer and will be perfect for those who want to achieve a look that's a little more eye-catching than the usual beach waves we see around spring-summer.
So how can you recreate this look from the comfort of your home? …
Follow these simple steps!
An essential part of this look is finding the right product that can slick your hair down without being too heavy. We’d recommend a lightweight gel or mousse suitable for your hair type. Once you slick your hair into the desired style you can seal in the sheen with a sheen oil.
