It seems like just yesterday that the Polar Vortex reared its ugly head, but salvation has come and spring has finally sprung! The reprieve from the bitter cold and awakening from winter hibernation is almost like finally moving on from an ex-boyfriend...and what better way to move on to greener pastures than by changing up your look? You know what they say, "new hair, new life"—and we’re going to help you breathe new life into your hair this Spring.
1. Solid Blondes
While balayage hair will remain popular and aren't going anywhere anytime soon, spring hair trends, specifically hair colors, will see a transition to solid blonde shades. Girls are going for a solid blonde or bleached-out look...like how Hilary Duff changed up her balayage to a solid bleach-out & Lucy Boyton’s solid blonde.
2. Solid Dark Brown
Charlize Theron, Emma Roberts, and Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke inspire brown color this Spring, who all rock deep, rich brown hues, no longer reserved for fall. If your Spring hairstyle features a darker hair color, Rocky suggests adding in ashy, dusty caramel highlights for a bit of added lightness. If you aren't looking to dye your hair anytime soon, opt for balayage hair extensions for that added pop of color instantly at home.
3. Shoulder Length Hair
Shoulder grazing hairstyles popularized last Spring, continue to trend this year. Blunt, one length spring hairstyles like Brie Larson's are the most popular, but don’t be afraid layer up if that’s your vibe. Rocky looks to Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, and Janis Joplin for hair inspo this Spring: mid-length cuts will be at above the shoulders, layered and texturized with a solid fringe...more of a Rock n’ Roll 80s look.
4. Deep side swept millennial S-wave
If you’ve been paying attention to celebrity hairstylist Instagram accounts, you’ll notice the polished, high shine wavy hairstyles taking over. Anyone going to a salon for a night out hairstyle is going for a relaxed version of the Veronica Lake traditional S-wave. In fact, hair icons Rihanna and Julia Roberts both rocked this look at the 2019 Oscars. Pair this spring hairstyle with a deep side part, curling into and over the face softly, or pair it with a middle part to give the hair subtle movement.
5. Natural Texture
Going natural has never been more popular, and with more hair companies expanding their wavy and curly product lines, this season is the perfect time to embrace this Spring hair trend. Not only does embracing your natural hair free you from the clutches of hot tools, but breaks the cycle of dry, damaged hair from constant heat styling, leading to healthier hair overall.
If you’ve never gone natural and aren’t sure where to start, be sure to visit your hairstylist and have your hair cut and shaped appropriately to work with your natural hair. Since there's always an art to layering your hair products to get the most out of your natural hair. ask your stylist to show you how to style, diffuse, or air-dry your hair according to your curl type, and invest in sea salt sprays and moisturizing curl creams to take your natural hair to the next level.
6. Short Chin length hair
Everyone wants to look like a French girl, whether it’s fashion or beauty, and the chin-length French girl bob haircut is the perfect way to do so. Shorter, chin-length graduated bobs are hot this Spring, so go ahead and make the chop…if you dare.
7. Face Framing choppy bangs
Were you aware that bangs are making a comeback in a big way? From curtain style, face-framing bangs to choppier bangs reminiscent of the 70s, every woman has had a love-hate relationship with bangs. If you’re yearning for a hair change this Spring and are thinking of making the cut, opting for face-framing choppy bangs paired with long layers. Finish off the look with a large barrel curling iron to create loose, undone, textured waves. If you're brave enough to make the chop, be sure to choose bangs that best suit your face shape, to avoid regrets.
Thanks for tuning in!
