Believe it or not, winter is finally coming to an end. We can all breathe a sigh of relief and bid goodbye to the harsh weather of winter. Now it’s time to turn our attention to spring – and figure out a look for the new season. After all, what better way to celebrate warm weather than with some fun new looks? While you still might need to bundle up a few more times, you can still celebrate spring with a few alterations to your hairstyle. Relax – you don’t need to do anything drastic. Here’s how you can get the best spring hair styles with just a flat iron, some hair ties, and a healthy dose of creativity.

 

Looking Sharp

Angular cuts and bobs are big this spring, and a delightful contrast to the more traditional, feminine styles. This look is easy to maintain, and makes you look effortlessly elegant no matter how frazzled you may be. Just be sure to invest in a good flat iron for that sleek, defined edge. Add a little pomade to smooth out any errant hairs and you’ll be ready to stroll the runway (or swing by the grocery store).

 

Keep It Textured

Not everyone goes in for the sleek option. For those that prefer a funkier, textured hair style, waves are the way to go. The Seventies and Eighties are still a huge influence on current fashion, so don’t be afraid to go big if that’s your thing. If you naturally have thin, flat hair without volume, you’re in luck: the right tools and treatments can add volume and texture to even the most stubborn mane.

 

Just Updo It

As the weather gets warmer, those of us with longer locks will be on the lookout for easy updo looks. A ponytail is all well and good, but spring is the perfect time to experiment with a host of fun new styles. Try adding curls with the help of a flat iron, and letting them frame your face. Add waves to a messy updo for a casual but sexy style. And if you just can’t walk away from your beloved ponytail, a few seconds with a straightener will leave it sleek, smooth, and simply elegant – no matter how hot it might get.

 

Maximum Curls

Maybe you’d prefer a look that requires minimal effort but provides maximum results. In that case, go for messy waves that add a dreamy and relaxed quality to your look. Flip your hair upside down and use your flat iron to add some much-needed volume. From there, the look is up to you! You can opt for soft, sensual curls or intense ringlets for a more glam style.

 

Bangs Are Back

This spring is celebrating bangs in a big way. If you’ve ever been curious about this look before, now could be the perfect time to take the plunge. Go for straight and severe bangs if you’re trying a bob, or softer side bangs with volume for a retro style. See which looks fit your face shape best. Experiment with different techniques and products, and don’t be afraid to try new things. Spring is a time of rebirth and discovery – you should definitely look the part.
