Turn Up The Heat With a New Hairstyle For Summer

It's that time of the year when our hair can start to feel heavy and we feel the urge to chop it all off into a one length bob. This year, there are a wide range of cool shorter hairstyles so you won't have to sacrifice style for comfort. 

The experts at Martin and Phelps Hair Salon in Cheltenham have created a guide to our favourite looks for summer 2022. Check them out below and then book in with our hairstyling specialists to see how we can make these styles work for you...

The Top Shorter Hair Trends For 2022





The Heartthrob Bob

One of the biggest men's hair trends of the last few years has been adopted by fashion forward ladies for 2022. The 90s heartthrob bob is a choppy, layered bob featuring close-cropped layers at the nape of the neck and then longer, cheekbone-sweeping pieces in the front is proving popular this year. Getting the hair up and off the neck can help you to cool down, and the texture of this hairstyle means less styling time, you can wash, tousle and go!

French Inspired Pixie Cuts

Give your hairstyle a little "je ne sais quoi" this summer with a French inspired gamine crop. The French version of the classic pixie has the traditional short cropped back and sides, but with the hair left longer on the top. The trick is to get a look that emulates the chic nonchalance that French women are famous for, with tousled layers and waves lending themselves to this undone look. Similarly to the heartthrob bob, you can put your styling tools away for this look, it is better styled with your fingers and a little mousse.

Collarbone Grazing Lobs

If you don't want to take too much length off this summer, consider a relaxed collarbone grazing lob, or long bob. This face flattering length is perfect for warmer summer days and can be styled in a number of ways. The "lob" hasn’t met a texture that it didn’t love, the length helps maintain volume and thickness in fine, straight hair, but is long enough that curly hair won't puff out as it would with a traditional length bob. Speak to your Martin & Phelps stylist about how the long bob can work with your hair. 

The Wolf Cut - The Retro-Modern Style

If you're looking for a fun new look for Summer, why not try the Wolf Cut? This modern twist combines retro mullet and shag haircuts, and is the perfect way to shake up your style! With the wolf cut, you hair is left shorter with a rugged shagginess on the top and faded towards the temples.

Style your wolf cut with a little mousse for plenty of movement and you’ll achieve a gorgeous, on-trend, textured hairstyle that will turn heads.
