Pinterest recently released its annual Pinterest Predicts list for 2022, and it’s gotten us positively pumped to see which beauty trends will make their mark in the new year.
Unlike a year-end trend report, Pinterest describes their list as a “not-yet-trending report.” The report is based on the trends in what users are searching for on the social media and image-sharing platform. And they have a pretty solid track record – 8 out of 10 of their 2021 predictions ended up coming true.
For us at Booksy, it’s all about staying ahead of the curve with hair, nails, makeup, skincare, and self-care. This year’s most exciting trends take inspiration from the Y2K era and the turn of the new millennium. We love to see the resurgence of old-school styles with a modern, optimistic twist.
Read on for our list of the most anticipated 2022 beauty trends.
Bling on Everything
Why should jewelry have all the fun? In 2022, we expect to see more bling than ever: gems, jewels, rhinestones, and all kinds of shiny objects. Think bedazzled nails and glamorous eye makeup. According to Pinterest, we might also find bling in more unexpected or surprising places, in the form of novelty items like tooth gems and temporary tattoos.
The pearl gets an edgy update in 2022. We love this revival of a classic jewel and can’t wait to see the dreamy hues in action. These aren’t your mother’s or grandmother’s pearls, so get ready to see pearl accents paired and contrasted with unexpected colors and textures. Personally, we’re excited for iridescent shades on everything from nail art to hair highlights.

Setting the Scene
A beautiful mani can really take you places. Booksy Ambassador and nail artist extraordinaire Spifster says one of the best parts about her job is creating something that her clients can take everywhere they go. We concur, and we’re so thrilled that elaborate, scenic designs are one of the top 2022 beauty trends.
Bring the thrill of faraway lands and universes into your everyday life with cosmic and landscape-inspired nail designs. Whether it’s of-this-world or out-of-this-world, count on seeing geodes, crystals, landscapes, and constellations adorning many hands next year.

The Higher the Hair
Nails aren’t the only thing going galactic this year. If Princess Leia or Sailor Moon are your style muses, this hair trend was made for you. 90s inspired hairdos like space buns and high-puff hairstyles are the perfect spaced-out styles to top off your look. These are especially great for those looking to accentuate their natural hair and make a bold statement.
Short hair, don’t care. The pandemic inspired some dramatic changes when it comes to hair, and it doesn’t look like that’s about to change anytime soon. Pinterest calls 2022’s hair trends “hard to miss” and we definitely agree. Gen Z has already been experimenting with unconventional styles like mullets, dramatic bob cuts, and colorful shaved hair designs, so expect to see more eye-catching trims this year.
