Spring Hair Inspiration: 6 Styles Put to the Test

By on March 25, 2015

We’ve officially entered into Spring and along with this transition comes a whole new slew of hair inspiration.

The spring/summer runways were brimming with the hottest styles worth emulating as the temperatures grow warmer.

Looking for a little inspiration? Check out what styles will be turning heads this Spring.

Braids, braids, and more braids!

It’s one of the easiest looks to master and there are so many varieties to chose from.

To achieve the perfectly messy braid add some texturizing powder (I recommend this one by Fudge Urban) and pull at the braid to loosen it.

I, for one, am obsessed with the Desert Braid seen at Mara Hoffman, and for those daring to try, we’ve been blessed with a little tutorial to get the look!



Beachy Waves

These are a warm weather must. They are relaxed, chic, and can be achieved a number of ways.

Simply braid damp hair, remove the next day, and add some sea salt spray for a heat-free option.

From personal experience, waves work even better on second day hair (maybe after a day of rocking a killer braid) because there are natural oils that can hold in the curls better.

There are plenty of other options such as curling wands and even flat irons.

There’s a really great tutorial over at The Beauty Department worth trying.




70s Au Naturel 

This trend, which is all about embracing a natural texture, is proving to be one of the biggest hair trends this Spring. However, natural texture is a really a hit or miss. Since it is meant to be as natural as possible, it really only requires allowing hair to air dry rather than applying heat. It also means using little or no product.

Everyone’s hair is different and I find adding a little hairspray or oil to combat the frizz goes a long way.

Adding product doesn’t detract from the natural state of the hair but rather enhances the quality of the look.

It also adds a bit more volume and definition for those with flatter, thinner hair.



The Humble Ponytail

Sleek, low ponytails (seen here at Gucci) are one of the easiest looks to pull off in warmer weather.

Achieving the look is extremely simple. To begin use natural texture or add a curl and tie in a low ponytail just above the nape of the neck.

It looks sophisticated, sleek, and relaxed and can be achieved just about anywhere, at any time.




Back in the late 80s/early 90s, crimping was all the rage, and if Barbie was doing it, it was a big deal.

Now the crimp is back and better than ever. There are plenty of ways to rock this look without looking like a time traveler or a kid, and my personal favorite is this ponytail from The Beauty Department.

It’s understated crimps add a little something extra to a ponytail filled with volume. It’s eye catching without looking like a fried disaster.




The Messy Bun

This last look from Bottega Veneta contains a couple of really great spring trends: hair accessories and low, messy buns.

Top knots have been all the rage but the understated messy low bun is making a comeback.

To achieve the look add some volume at the roots and pull hair into a messy bun at the nape of the neck.

For an extra messy look pull out some small pieces to frame the face and finish it off with some hairspray.

The hair comb is a pretty and feminine addition to any spring up-do, and isn’t just for weddings anymore.

Two really great options for decorative, pretty looking hair combs can be found at John Lewis and Kohls.
