Finally, Winter has receded into the background. Hello, beautiful weather! Time to get ready for even more sun, surf, and brand new style?
Need to freshen up your look this season? Check out some of these hot hair trends, complete with pictures for Pinterest-worthy hair inspo.
Wavy, Shoulder-Length Bob
Jessica Alba recently debuted this sassy cut. And some of our favorite celebrities have sported this style: Anne Hathaway, Alexa Chung, and even Lauren Conrad have all opted for a choppy look at some point.
Medium-length hair is the perfect style for Spring and Summer. It’s long enough to keep out of your face, but short enough to keep you cool. And best of all, it’s fairly low maintenance. A texturizing spray and some DIY finger-twirled waves keep you looking natural and effortless.
A few face-framing highlights, subtle ombre, or retro fringe will draw attention to the face, making you appear younger and pulled together. Find a salon that specializes in trendy cut and color. If you’re unsure, or want to shop around, inquire about possible consultation to talk about your hair goals.
Long Hair, No Cares
The stigma around hair extensions has disappeared. Recently, the previously-shorthaired Emily Weiss dished about her Kardashian-inspired hair extensions. (They look completely fab on her.) If you want to go this route, it’s important to find a salon that creates custom-made extensions that use 100% human hair. The best part? No matter your current length or color, your current hair and new extensions can be dyed, chopped, and styled to your hearts desire.
Make sure your salon also offers a comprehensive guide on extension maintenance.
Need a Pick Me Up? Get a Blow Out!
Have a big date, job interview, or photo shoot you absolutely need to nail? Getting a professional blowout gives you an extra confidence boost (not to mention, big, shiny locks). And with the help of dry shampoo, you can rock your voluminous hair for days.
Revamp Your Braid Game
Box braids are experiencing a comeback this season. If you want to re-live the nineties all over again (or are too young to remember them) check out these tips for scoring the perfect braids.
- Consider the size of your braids. Small versus large braids often depend on the texture, length, and health of your hair. For fine and/or thin hair, it’s best to opt for smaller box braids. However, if you have thicker strands, a bigger braid will give you added volume. (Plus, it will save you from having tons of small braids, unless of course that’s the look you’re going for.)
- Repeat after us: deep condition or do an oil treatment before you braid. A professional deep conditioning treatment will give you the glossiest, healthiest braids possible.
