With spring weather on the horizon (hopefully!), now is the perfect time to sport a fresh, flirty new ‘do. Not sure what style will look best for your hair length and texture? Not to fear! We’ve rounded up the hottest hair trends of spring 2015—from sleek pixie cuts, to beachy tousled waves—so you can welcome the warmer weather in style.
ROCK-N-ROLL PIXIE CUT
For a shorter hairstyle with a rocker twist, opt for all-over texture like Rita Ora and Jennifer Lawrence. Unlike traditional pixie cuts, messy, side-swept bangs keep this style looking feminine and oh-so-sexy. Feeling extra bold? Add a few face framing highlights or pump up the volume with a dollop of mousse or texturizing spray.
This spring, it’s all about easy-breezy natural-looking locks. And sorry ladies, but it may be time to retire your flatiron—super-straight long manes are a thing of the past. Sexy shoulder-length cuts, like those sported by Kim Kardashian and Olivia Palermo, are going to be all the rage this season.
HALF-UP TOP KNOT
Whether you’re running errands or hitting the town, some days you just want to pull your hair back off your face. And let’s face it, nothing looks hotter than when you look like your not trying. To re-create this style at home, grab a top section of hair and make a loose bun. Don’t worry about fly-aways or perfecting the perfect part—this hairstyle looks best messy.
Long, layered waves have been around for ages, and thankfully, they’re not going anywhere! To master this look at home, wrap small sections of hair around a large-barreled curling iron and spray with a spritz of hairspray. To keep your curls looking more beachy, be sure to only curl the hair up to your cheekbones and run your fingers through when finished to keep everything from looking too perfect.
SIDE FISHTAIL BRAID
Braids are one of the most versatile hairstyle in existence—and for good reason! They complement little black dresses or hoodie sweatshirts and work with hair of all textures. To create a boho look like Shailene Woodley and Sarah Hyland, make the braid a little looser by slightly pulling it apart after braiding. Let a few face-framing strands hang loose.
The difference between this ponytail and the one you wear to the gym—volume! For a chic finishing touch, wrap a strand of hair around the elastic.
