Here Are the 2022 Beauty Trends That Work For You, According to Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

  • If you're looking for a beauty refresh in 2022, you're in the right place.
  • There are numerous haircuts, nail designs, and makeup trends expected to be everywhere this year.
  • We created a guide on which trend to try first, broken down by your Myers-Briggs personality type.

We may only be a few days into the new year, and yet there's already an endless onslaught of makeup, nail, and haircut trend predictions promising to make you a better you in 2022 (eye roll). That said, if you are looking for a beauty refresh that will help you look and feel great without compromising anything else in your life, we have a suggestion: think about what traits already make you special, and let your Myers-Briggs personality type guide you to the beauty trend to try instead.

For anyone unfamiliar, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a self-report questionnaire created by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers that leads to one of 16 total personality traits. The test — which you can take here, if you haven't already — measures everything from how you approach conflict to the types of social settings you thrive in, indicating whether you are an introvert or extrovert, how you perceive the world, and even whether you are more creative or analytical.

As you enter 2022, use your results to your advantage when it comes to your beauty routine. If you're an introverted yet creative INTJ, why not try an ethereal twist on the classic french manicure? More of an ESTP? Play up your bold and outgoing nature with a graphic eyeliner look. The possibilities are endless, so to help you decide your next beauty move, we've curated a list of 16 beauty trends that you'll see in 2022 and broken them down to corresponding Myers-Briggs personality types to help spark some inspiration.

After you've taken the test, scroll through to see where your 2022 glow-up should start.

ISTJ: '90s Supermodel Nails

ISTJs (which stands for introverted, sensing, thinking, and judging) are known to be more practical, reserved, and quiet. That means you are probably less interested in those in-your-face nail trends and would much rather a fresh manicure featuring a timeless sheer pink nail color, recently dubbed '90s supermodel nails by celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik.

ISFP: Underlayer Hair Color

As an ISFP, which stands for introverted, sensing, feeling, and perceiving, you're quiet, easygoing, and always down for an adventure — meaning there's no better trend for you than the "underlayer" hair color. It takes the "classic, peekaboo color look to a new, more dramatic level with statement shades hidden throughout the nape and ear area of the head," celebrity hairstylist Jason Backe previously told POPSUGAR. That means you can keep to your natural hair color when it's down or throw it up in a pony and reveal a whole new side of you.

ESTP: Fairy-Wing Eyeliner

ESTPs are extroverted, sensing, thinking, and perceiving, and if you identify as this type, you likely love to be the center of attention but you also never miss a detail. This makes the fairy-wing eyeliner trend perfect for you, as it elevates your everyday liner to new heights while leaving the door open to add as many details as you'd like.

ENFP: Bixie Haircut

As a personality type that is extroverted, intuitive, feeling, and perceiving, you're extremely charismatic and very much creative by nature. Try a bixie haircut to welcome the new year. The short haircut, featuring a full bang, will look adorable as you tackle your next big project.

INTJ: "French Moon" Manicure

As an INTJ (which stands for introverted, intuitive, thinking, and judging), you are highly strategic and deliberate — but that doesn't mean you don't like to tap into your creative side. Try a cool twist on the classic french manicure (we like the "french moon" look for its moodier take, but you have options). The trendy tweak to the traditional design would be right up your alley.

ENFJ: '90s Tattoos

Characterized by your extroverted, intuitive, feeling, and judging traits, ENFJs are most known as the "caregiver" of your friend group, and your warm energy attracts everyone you meet. The ultimate people person, you're also extremely nostalgic, which makes getting a tattoo that reminds you of the past — like the '90s-inspired designs trending right now — is right up your alley.

INJF: Flannel Highlights

As an INJF (aka introverted, intuitive, feeling, and judging), you're equal parts creative and analytical. Lean into that duality with a similarly contrasting hair color, particularly the flannel-highlights trend, an updated version of balayage.

ISTP: Bold Lipstick

Just because ISTPs — aka introverted, sensing, thinking, and perceiving — thrive in solitude doesn't mean you don't also love to stand out. Refresh your makeup bag with a bold lip color like red or maroon, neither of which feels too out-there for an introverted type but still makes a statement.

ESTJ: Broom Haircut

ESTJs, which stands for extroverted, sensing, thinking, and judging, are logical and assertive. If you identify with this group, the broom haircut would be perfect for your new-year look. It's low maintenance and highly chic, so you'll command the attention of everyone — everywhere you go.

INTP: Goth Nails

INTPs are introverted, intuitive, thinking, and perceiving, meaning you are often in your own world. Carving out some alone time at a location outside of your home like the salon will do just the trick to get your thoughts flowing in a different environment. What to ask for when there? Try a deep royal purple color, or otherwise dark, brooding hue, to tap into your inner love for the grunge aesthetic.

ESFP: Crystal Eye Makeup

ESFPs are extremely spontaneous and outgoing (this personality type stands for extroverted, sensing, feeling, and perceiving, after all), and that's why you need a makeup look that shines as bright as you. Our suggestion: crystal eye makeup or eye gems that give your everyday look a little something extra.

INFP: Constellation Tattoo

If you're an INFP (introverted, intuitive, feeling, and perceiving), you are a deeply intuitive thinker and dreamer. For those of you looking for a beauty reset, try out a constellation tattoo. Now, when people say you always have your head in the clouds, you can show them the cool way you've embraced the sentiment.

ISFJ: Warm Pastel Nail Polish

If you identify as an ISFJ personality type, meaning you align more in the introverted, sensing, feeling, and judging category, chances are you are warm and welcoming but can tend to be reserved. Try a new nail color that plays up your inner nature, particularly a warm pastel hue, for an elevated take on the traditionally milky nail colors.

ESFJ: Monochromatic Makeup

You are outgoing and loyal if you identify as an ESFJ (extroverted, sensing, feeling, and judging), which means you're likely also loyal to colors, people, and, yes, makeup. That's why monochromatic makeup is perfect for you — you can wear your favorite shade on your eyes, lips, and cheeks, until the wheels fall off.

ENTJ: Crocodile Nails

You're confident and outspoken as an ENTJ — which stands for extroverted, intuitive, thinking, and judging — and what better way to show the world who you are than with a new nail design? Though you're probably already a trendsetter with your nail looks, try a crocodile nail design at your next appointment and let your nails speak — or hiss? — for themselves.

ENTP: Microrealism Tattoo

ENTPs (which stands for extroverted, intuitive, thinking, and perceiving) are visionaries — and your incredible ideas are nonstop. You're eagle-eyed about what you want, which is why a microrealism tattoo would be perfect for you in 2022. A portrait that is unmistakable but can still strike up a conversation? Bring it on.
