Spring is a season of renewal and change, so it’s the perfect time to switch up your hairstyle for something new! Whether you’re looking to get in on the latest hair trends or find a new hairdo to express yourself, there are loads of styles out there. Keep reading for 4 of the absolute best spring hairstyles of 2023!
Do you dream of having a long, luscious mane? Then why not fake it till you make it? Long braids give the illusion of longer hair with the help of extensions. And they're always popular, no matter the season.
You can do a single braid down the middle of your head, layers and layers of long cornrows, or dozens of small box braids. For a fun, modern twist you could try incorporating multiple hair colors into the braids or embellishing them with beads or jewels.
Just keep in mind that, even though braids like these are considered protective, they can cause traction alopecia if you or your stylist braids them too tightly.
The shag was hot in the 70s; stars like Mick Jagger and Joan Jett were instrumental in popularizing the style. The look featured super choppy layers that were so full of personality that they evoked endless stares.
Now, the look is back with a new silhouette - it's still all about texture and effortless style but it is a bit more toned down. The layers are softer, making the look a lot more wearable. You'll love this look for the spring because it's low maintenance, has a light, airy feel, and meshes well with a wide variety of face shapes and style profiles.
High and Low Buns
Spring isn't always sunshine and flowers - sometimes it means buckets of rain and windy days. Thankfully, you can keep your hair looking chic no matter the weather with a high or low bun. And the best part is that literally anyone can pull the style off.
For a sleek, put-together bun, use your favorite gel to eliminate flyaways and pull your hair into a ponytail either at your crown or your nape. Then, wrap the hanging hair around the base of the ponytail, secure with an elastic, and you're ready to go!
Big and Curly
Do you have naturally textured hair? Then, you should definitely consider rocking a look that celebrates your curls! Big, voluminous curls are trendy at any given time, and this spring is no exception. They can be playful, sexy, sophisticated - well, all of the above, depending on your curl type, styling routine, and aura.
To bring out the best in your natural curls, coat your clean, damp curls in a curl enhancing cram or gel and let your mane air-dry. It also helps to regularly trim the ends of your hair and use a high-quality leave-in conditioner before you go out each day.
Don't have natural curls? Get yourself some curling rods, a curling iron, or a wig, and fake it!
So, there you have it! With any of 4 spring hairstyles are sure to make a statement this season. We hope you found some inspiration in this post, and we wish you all the best this spring.
