A bad hair day can turn a seemingly nice day into a drab, unpleasant and sometimes disastrous one. Note that this is not an exaggeration. True, it may seem a little shallow and minuscule compared to other important things going on in our lives and around the world, but if you're not comfortable with the way you look, then you're not comfortable with the way you feel and this discomfort, unfortunately becomes very evident in the way you carry yourself. So to spare everyone around you the horror of having to tolerate your bouts of frustration, let us get to know what we can do to keep your hair trendy and fabulous this spring.
Hair Trends this Spring
Spring brings with it a melee of new colors, styles and textures, both in fabric and in hair. There's so much that can be done with hair that is inspired by the spirit of spring. Whether it's a simple haircut or a complete transformation, everything screams life and bounty. This is what hair trends are all about this spring. Here's a comprehensive summary of some of the best hairstyles predicted to be in vogue in spring 2012.
Plaits and Twirls
Plaits, braids and twirls; that's what spring 2012 is all about. It's all about tying your hair in a manner that makes it look neat, classy, yet fun and sassy. If you thought a braid couldn't do all that, think again. There are different styles of braids and twists that you can experiment with. Invent your own style and set a statement. Twirls are big on the bridal scene as well. So if you're getting married and are contemplating a hairdo, a plait tied after twisting the hair on the top is perfect! Various plaits and twirls are ruling the ramps too, just in case you're still considering it.
Damp and Neat
For all those women who are extremely fussy about keeping their hair 'in place' all the time, this spring is going to be their hair fantasy come true. Yes, the damp, glistening and flat look is in vogue, what with almost every third fashion model sporting it on the ramp. This hairstyle may require a bit more maintenance, owing to the use of hair holding products that you'll have to use. But there's no way around it if you want to maintain the wet look all day long.
Blown out Tresses
This spring is all about opposites. Where on one hand the wet look is in, on the other it's blown out hairstyles. It's one of the simplest hairdos that a woman can sport, yet needs considerable effort, not to mention time. Wash and condition your hair before you intend to blow dry it. Blow drying takes away the moisture completely, so you'll need that extra TLC to maintain that glossy look. Straight hair, curly hair, wavy hair, long hair, short hair; whatever you have, nothing beats a well blown out mane!
Looks like classics are back with a bang. Yet another evergreen hairstyle that needs little to no effort is a ponytail. There's something so inherently pretty about a ponytail that it makes everyone want one. The best part is, it can be modified into so many different styles and combined with other hairstyles, making it one of the most versatile hair trends. Whatever the length or texture of your hair, and whatever the occasion, there's no way you can go wrong with a well-tied and styled ponytail.
Updos never really go out of style, they just keep returning with varieties and a bit of tweaking here and there. This spring, it's embellished updos that are catching everyone's eye on the ramp. Fancy up a simple side bun with a flower, or add funky clips for a casual occasion. Brides can fully exploit this hairstyle since it will serve a dual purpose of holding the veil and making you look absolutely stunning on your wedding day! There's not much you can ask for in a hairstyle as chic as an updo, is there?
Just pick up any look you think will suit you from the ones mentioned above and have a wonderful time trying out different styles. Don't be afraid to try something new. Just enjoy the admiring glances that you'll get by following these hair trends. If you're still not convinced, here's a little secret: the supermodels are doing them too!
