Three Hair Trends to try this Spring
If you feel the urge to update your look a bit as the winter comes to end, you are not alone! If you're looking for some inspiration, check out these updates that will work for almost anyone!
The Long Curtain Fringe
Curtain Bangs in all lengths have had serious staying power over the past few years, and aren't going away anytime soon. If you've been on the fence for awhile, consider going for the longer variety (ending between the cheek and jawbone).
This look frames the face nicely, de-emphasizes a forehead, and gives a little lift to long hair styles, while at the same time offering the option to be pulled back into a ponytail as needed.
The Bouncy Blowout
Called "Rich girl hair" by some, I love this classic look because it's easy to perform at home with just a little practice and a few extra minutes.
Here's how I create this look for myself;
First I blow dry with a round brush, and then use texture spray throughout. I use my 1 1/4' iron to curl a mohawk section (like pictured below) up and away from my face, pinning each curl with a duckbill clip.I also like to curl the rest of my hair in large sections downward and towards my face. Then I spray liberally everywhere with a medium hold hair spray.
After leaving the hair set for about 30 min, I take out the pins and brush out my hair for the perfect bouncy volume!
In the salon, you might see this look created with a flat iron. This is the technique that looks like rocking the hair back and forth as the flat iron slides down a section of hair. This method can be tricky to do for yourself, especially once you move past the front & sides of your head.
For a more user friendly approach, check out the Bondi-boost waver. This tool retails for under $60 and has 3 separate barrels. I like experimenting with sections sizes and varying how close to the root I start waving each section for a look that's not too perfect.
