The weather is beginning to warm up a little and that means the season of hat hair is officially over. Instead of covering up your mane attraction, show it off with spring's hot hair trends.
Hair accessories have moved from the playground to the boardroom. Everything from headbands to barrettes and funky clips can be worn to hold hair in place or just to add a little something extra to an otherwise ordinary 'do. Clip bangs out of the face or use them with up-do's; either way they're a small accessory that can make a big impression.
Ponytails are often thought of as just for the gym, but spring's ponytails are high and low and everywhere in between. They can easily be taken from day to night and from casual to elegant. With the option to go sleek and sophisticated or deliberately tousled, ponytails are a definite do, so start stocking up on elastic bands.
Feathers were featured on many runways and can add something a little daring and different to hair, while still remaining on the safe side of edgy. Try feathers in colors close to those found in nature to avoid looking too much like a Pocahontas costume on Halloween. You can mix them in with your headbands and elastic bands for a whimsical take on a simple style.
Texture is back after years of super straight hair. Trade your flat iron in for a curling wand and go to work. Don't worry about getting perfect curls, the effect should be natural, not forced. Try using a dry shampoo to help with volume and only curl some of the hair for a right-off-the-beach effect. It's quick effortless hair that you don't have to think about or fuss with.
Twists sound complicated, but they don't have to be. Rather than a traditional chignon, go for something a little looser. No need to spend lots of time on this style either; the whole point of this look is to be imperfect and wind-blown. Twists and loose buns can be finished with hairspray for extra hold and to get rid of any unwanted flyaways.
