It’s the time of year when we spring-clean everything from our home and office space, to our closet and makeup bag. It’s the whole “out with the old, in with the new” mantra we love about the season of growth and rebirth. But aren’t we forgetting something? There’s one aspect of our lives that we tend to hold onto like a security blanket. It may not be bad, but chances are over time, it’s become a bit boring, predictable and stale. Of course, we’re talking about your mane.
Whether you’re ready for a big chop or a just a little adjustment, we’re highlighting five cool hairstyle trends to inspire you to get a fresh new look for spring. Scroll down for fifteen inspirational styles.
Bang It Out
That age-old question girls everywhere can’t help but debate is finally being solved. Should you cut bangs? After seeing how Taylor, Cressida, and Behati rock their fringe, the answer is a clear YES.
Half the fear in deciding to chop off your mane is not knowing what you’ll do with it as it grows out, but Anne Hathaway proves there’s nothing to worry about. After doing the cut for Les Miserables, Anne’s rocking a cropped-to-the-jaw wavy style we’re loving.
Let It Be
With all the music fests, patio dates and weekend road trips you have locked down, who has time to stay in to blow, straighten and tame their locks? With this cool French girl trend, there’s no need for styling tools. Say hello to bedhead chic.
Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss
Do like the supermodels and think less is more when it comes to your locks. Refrain from over-dying and over-processing your hair, and rock it just as it is like Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss.
Gigi Hadid and Rachel Hilbert
Going to a pool party? Wear your hair in its natural state like Gigi Hadid and Rachel Hilbert, so you don’t have perfectly curled locks holding you back from diving into the refreshing water.
Go Half Up
Easily tame your natural locks by pulling half your mane into a cool half-up style. Do like Keira and Alexa and leave your bangs down for an effortless look, or team your style with a teeny braid a la Nina, for the perfect boho look.
