Makeup trends for spring are all about showing off natural beauty. Many hair trends this season also feature a natural, just-stepped-out-of-the-ocean look while others showcase sleek and polished dos.
One of the most popular springtime hairstyles this year is the fresh-off-the-beach look, and you get it by creating loose waves. For those with naturally wavy hair, your springtime hairstyle may require nothing more than a wash and air-dry. For those with pin-straight hair, loose waves created with a flat iron can give your hair just enough “kink” to make it look like you’ve just dismounted your surfboard.
Many of the hottest looks this spring involve adding volume. There are two main strategies to boost volume and lift:
You may even add volume (and height) by teasing, especially if you want a retro beehive-barrette do for an off-the-face style.
Not all springtime looks are messy and natural, especially for evenings out. Still, this spring’s most popular dos are simple:
Straight, sleek and polished is best suited for beyond-shoulder-length hair with straight ends. A middle part accentuates straight lines to frame your face, and products can help enhance shine (and tame pesky fly-aways).
Sleek high ponytail tightly captures your full head of hair into a single tail with a base where the crown of your head begins to curve down/back. Wrap a section of hair around the ponytail base to create a polished, band-free look.
For more elegant does, you may also try a high ballerina bun or sweep side sections of hair across the back of your head and secure with hidden pins to create a simple weave.
If spring warrants a change of color for your locks, ideal hues are those that create a sun-drenched look—golden blonde and blonde highlights. Color applications should appear natural, just like the surf-inspired styles of the season.
