Spruce Up Your Hair This Spring With These Style Trends
It’s that time of the year again! Time to start deciding on hairstyles that are right for you. Currently, you’re likely seeking inspiration from your old textures that have been smashed under the hats for the past few months. But you’re coming up bone-dry when pumping new ideas. That’s ok, we’ve been there too.
The good news is some interesting style trends have been spotted on the runways this year. They offer fresh ideas for your everyday hairstyling. Here’s a quick guide to ensure you steal the spotlight this season:
Braids are playful and simply look elegant when combined with a great outfit. The new trends suggest you go for a more fierce approach this season to add an edgy vibe to your entire look. You can do one straight down the back, or go with a side sweep; keep it lose and easy-going either way. Braiding hair and tying it with a ribbon would top off the hairstyle.
If you love loose hair but want to add a touch of the trend in this look, then section out a long piece of hair to the temple from the back of the hair. Plait it through and secure it with elastic so it doesn’t show when a pin is used to secure it in place. Take the plait over the top of your hair and grip behind the other ear to create a balanced look.
Honey hue with root dimensions
If you have light brown or dark blonde hair, you can go for a honey hue with scattering of highlights to create depth in the roots. A hair coloring technique called Balayage can be used to achieve the soft graduation of color; the aim is to create depth in the roots with a soft haze between color shades.
You can apply this technique yourself or take advantage of professional hair coloring services. The Balayage technique has also become popular among Hollywood stars for painting the lower hair ends without caping. Therefore the dyes spread to give a natural fading of color shifts, or sun-beached blending of the selected color. The end result is a much more youthful hair look than a heavy bleach job.
The wet-look is going to maintain its popularity from last year when it comes to achieving a modern-chic look with an elegant vibe. The lovely look is perfect for hitting the beach. You can pull the front sections of your hair over the ears and then tie them back and slick the top with wet gel.
The other trending style is a structural look where you harden the top with wet gel and create waves at the bottom. For better results, you can go for a wet look with texturized bun to achieve a trending runaway look for spring 2014.
Soft waves and rolls
Bring back the 90s with soft waves that look fresh and natural. The key to creating this look is to opt for a light touch when using the curling iron. Massive and tousled waves with retro allure could also work well, with center parting dominating the style.
Besides waves, you could go with the ‘20s inspired hairstyle with a horizontal braid that hides at the nap of your neck area, and serves as a base for rolls. Then you can create vintage roll for a stylish hair look.
