Spring Hair Trends for The Simple-Savvy

Alicia Boal


The official start of Spring means flowers will be in bloom, winter wardrobes will retire to the boxes under your bed and you will be faced with the daunting task of creating fabulous, weather-resistant hairstyles every day! Oy!

Lucky for you, simple (and messy) are in, so instead of spending all morning pulling, heating and spraying your hair to perfection, try these latest trends from that will save you time AND pain!


The Quiff
No, we are not talking about the "Snookie poof"...the quiff is a great way to give any 'do some edge, whether you create an up-do with it or use it to compliment to your blowout.

How to Get the Look:
1. Gather the front section of your hair (extending 3-4 inches across your forehead). You can use a styling paste (like Redken Rewind 06) to mold the hair, or just spray at the end.
2. Slightly twist and quiff up the hair (you can create as much or as little height as you prefer).
3. Pin the front section in place. Use a firm hold hairspray (like Redken Foreceful 23) to keep your hair from falling out.


The Ponytail
The classic pony is being worn from the red carpet to the gym (it's really THAT versatile!) - here's a look that will make your everyday ponytail a little bit more elegant.

How to Get the Look:
1. Part your hair in the middle and pull it into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. If your hair is fine, you can tease it to get volume at the roots, then spray it with hairspray.
2. Loop the ponytail under and secure with an elastic, keeping one small section free. Using your fingers, spread the "looped" hair into a triangular shape.
3. Wrap the loose section of hair around the base of the ponytail to cover the elastic. Pin it in place and spray with hairspray to hold. Try Redken Quick Dry 18 for a firm, no-fuss finish!


The Wet Look Chignon
If you don't wash your hair everyday, do you constantly find yourself saying, "Why yes, I just came from the spa and had an oily head massage", or "How'd you know I just took a swim in the closest body of salt water on my lunch break?". Great news for you, the wet look is IN!

How to Get the Look:
1. Apply a volumising mousse (try Redken’s Full Frame 07) throughout towel-dried hair and let it dry naturally.
2. For extra volume, flip your damp hair forward and give it a blast of heat from your hairdryer.
3. To get the "wet look", apply  Cibu Ancient Serum or Cibu Ancient Veil Argan Oil through your dry hair to get a silky, shiny look.
4. Pull your hair back into a low, loose ponytail.
5. Wrap your ponytail into a messy low bun/chignon and secure with bobby pins. Pull a few strands out  if you want to add to the effortless look of the style.


While Spring time brings a little bit of rain, you'll look chic in every storm with these three unique trends!
