After a long winter, there’s nothing more refreshing than a new hairstyle. Whether it’s a cut or color, a new look can perk up your mood and get you ready for spring. Spring hairstyles this year are fun, chic, and the perfect way to welcome in the new season.
Hair color trends for spring hairstyles are playful yet sophisticated. If you’ve not taken the plunge with a contemporary color like blue, purple, or pink, now’s the time to indulge.
All-over contemporary color may not work for everyone, which is why this spring dip-dyed tips are trending. Dip-dye your blonde tresses a playful pink or add blue tips to your dark brunette hair
Another option for contemporary color is to go opal, a shimmering blend of pearl and pastels that can include pink, blue, purple and mint. It’s a bold coloring choice but one that looks stylish and sophisticated.
According to Redbook, the term “babylights” was coined by Jack Howard of Neville Hair & Beauty Salon and “refers to a technique of applying very fine strands of color throughout the hair with plastic wrap.” It gives your hair a multi-dimensional look.
If you’re looking to transform your hair color into the red family, consider going ronze. This is a combination of copper red and bronze brown. It looks stunning on a variety of skin tones and glistens gorgeously in the spring sunshine.
Fun Spring Hair Cut Trends
Four haircut trends stand out this spring, offering a fresh look to your style. These cuts are eye-catching yet easy to recreate at home so you always look like you’ve just stepped out of the salon.
The bob has been popular for several seasons, but this spring it’s got a new look. The architectural bob gives a bit of edge to a classic cut. The style is more blunt cut and shows off the neck and shoulders, making it perfect when you’re wearing those spring sundresses.
The pixie is a great cut for the warmer weather and super easy to maintain. The asymmetrical pixie features longer tresses in the front with a deep side part. The side is no longer shaved, just cut in shorter layers. The look is soft and feminine.
The lob: off-kilter or textured
The lob is worn longer than bob, almost shoulder-length. The off-kilter lob is worn longer on one side, deeply parted and without layers. It’s a sophisticated look that transitions easily from the office to a dinner party. The textured version has long layers and is a bit more piece-y. It’s a flattering cut for most facial shapes and super easy to style — just wash, apply a little pomade and air or blow dry.
Ways to Style Hair for Spring
This spring embrace one of these fashionable hairstyle trends, perfect for day or night.
Whether you call it a knot, twist or bun, wear it at the nape of the neck for spring. Pull your hair back into a low ponytail and with a quick twist, wrap it into a knot and secure it with bobby pins. Wear it sleekly styled or slightly messy.
Deep side part
Asymmetrical is popular this spring and the deep side part lets you embrace that trend with ease. Create the part just above the ear and sweep the hair over to the other side for a dramatic look.
Fringe or bangs
If you’re wearing your hair long (below the shoulder) and straight, add a bit of spring sass by having fringe or bangs cut into your style. Go for a blunt cut or wispy look.
Loose, boho-style braids have been in style, but this spring try tightening up your braids just a bit. Opt for a tighter, single French braid or add a few, thin yet tight braids near your face for a fun look.
Beautiful headbands, clips, pins and hair jewelry add style and fun to your look, whether you’re stepping out with a pixie cut or long, layers worn in loose curls.
