It’s that time of year again: the time when we’re all so sick of winter that every snowflake makes us want to scream. If you’re like us, you’ve already changed your computer’s wallpaper to a beach scene.
Thankfully, spring is right around the corner. Now is the time to start preparing by toning your arms for short sleeves, digging your spring wardrobe out of the closet, and of course, picking out a spring haircut.
Need some inspiration? Look no further than these spring hairstyles that will send you into the new season looking trendy.
1. The Textured Pixie
Pixie cuts have been everywhere in the past few years, and why not? They’re gorgeous, easy to care for, and cool enough for the spring and summer sun. This year, though, the trend has a twist.
The 2019 pixie is all about texture. Celebrities like Kate Hudson are already rocking this look and showing us all how easy it is to look glam.
Be warned, though: don’t attempt to DIY a textured hairstyle. It’s the fine details that make the difference between perfect choppiness and looking like you let a 4-year-old cut your hair.
2. The Choppy Bob
The pixie cut isn’t the only hairstyle that’s all about the texture this year. If you don’t want to go as short as a pixie, you’ll love the choppy bob.
The choppy bob is the same length as a traditional bob. The difference is that it’s full of strategic layers. The ends also have more texture rather than looking like they’re precision-sliced.
This style is a great fit for any hair color, but it’s particularly trendy if you’re a brunette who wants to add a touch of blond balayage.
3. Front Bangs
For most of the 2010s, side-swept bangs have been the style du jour. In the past year, though, that’s been shifting. Spring 2019 is all about straight, front-facing bangs.
Bangs can be a great addition to any hair length. The trick is to make sure to match your bangs to your face shape. For women who have tall foreheads, in particular, this year’s style of bangs is perfect.
As an added bonus, front-facing bangs pair well with a popular hair accessory this spring: headscarves. Wrap and tie the scarf as a headband but keep your bangs out in front of it. Instant style.
4. Free-Flying Curls
If you have curly hair, this is your year! Gone are the days of chemically straightened hair and trying to keep your curls to a minimum. 2019 trends are embracing your curls in all the voluminous glory.
Of course, you want them to be manicured too. Choices like our Deva Haircut can make your curls look perfect and natural while getting rid of split ends, random flyaways, and other trouble-makers.
Keep in mind that beyond your cut, you’ll need to keep your curls in line day-to-day. The products you use will make a huge difference. Your stylist will be able to recommend the perfect products for your hair’s cut and texture to keep frizz at bay.
5. Blond Infusion
When the sun comes out and warmer weather hits, the blond bombshell is suddenly back in style. This year, though, there are some limitations you want to consider.
If you plan to lighten your hair for spring, be sure to stick with warm tones. Instead of going for a white-toned blond, stick with something that has a warmer, sun-kissed vibe.
Worried about overdoing it? Another popular trend this year is to stay a step shy of blond. Aim for something halfway between your natural color and the lightest color you’d consider. This gives you that warm spring style while making sure you still look like you.
6. The Wave
As you can see by all the textured and choppy styles on this list, this spring’s hairstyles are all about being casual and breezy. Now is the time to trade in a harsh or precise cut for a more relaxed one.
Sticking with that theme, the wave is back in style. You can incorporate casual waves into any length of haircut from a bob to a long cut that flows down your back.
One of the trickiest aspects of a wavy hairstyle is trying to achieve the right look every day. For a low-maintenance option, we offer American Wave: a style of permanent that creates modern waves rather than old-school tight curls.
7. Cascading Locks
Most of this spring’s trendiest hairstyles are shorter. Some women prefer short hair as the weather warms up because it keeps them cool and comfortable. So what do you do if you want an on-trend haircut but you want to keep your hair long?
It’s all about the layers. Cascading layers are strategic layers in the front of your hair around your face. While this style is nothing new, it’s making a major comeback this spring.
Cascading layers are especially flattering for women who want their faces to look slimmer. The layers add an extra dimension that makes your face look longer and, as a result, thinner.
Updating Your Spring Hairstyles
There’s something refreshing about change. A new hairstyle can help you feel like you’re starting on a new path and one with greater self-confidence. Plus, it helps you get rid of the last remnants of a winter we’re thrilled to bid farewell.
The trick is to find a style that’s trendy but also feels like you. The spring hairstyles above and give you a taste for your options but leave enough space for you to add your own personality to the mix. Your stylist can help you nail your new style and start your spring on the right foot.
