Spring is just around the corner, and we’re counting down the days to its official arrival. We’re ready to trade in dark, heavy colors and itchy fabrics for lighter, brighter looks. At Deseo Salon & BlowDry spring also means fresh hair, fresh styles, and trendy colors. We love guiding our clients as they pursue new cuts and colors, so we’ve created a list of the hottest spring 2018 hair trends. These looks are on track to turn heads and steal the runways this season. Read on!
Spring 2018 Hair Trends
Nirvana blonde is the soft platinum recently seen on Selena Gomez. According to her stylists, the look has a “lived-in” feeling that’s easier on your roots. Caution: you need a professional colorist to get this right; it’s not a good DIY gamble!
Embrace Your Curls
Curls are bigger than ever this spring, so if you’ve been fighting your natural locks with chemical straighteners and flat irons, surrender and embrace them instead. We recommend working with one of Deseo’s highly-trained stylists to achieve the perfect flattering cut. We understand curly hair, and we can’t wait to help you love it.
Unlike the precise braids we saw last year, this year’s version is slightly unkempt, loose, and shiny. Secure your braids with bands that match your hair color. (No “baubles”!)
Bob + Bangs = Wow!
Lobs have already started morphing back into classic bobs, but now there’s a new twist. The newest way to wear a bob is with long, blunt bangs that can be swept to the side as they grow out. Gorgeous!
Think Metallic (Silver)
Gray hair has been having a moment, but this spring it’s silvery blonde hair that’ll be turning heads. Women of all ages can pull off this look, and we love throwing in a hint of pastel to turn up the heat. One caveat: this look doesn’t work with dark roots, so you’ll need to be vigilant about maintenance. We suggest seeing your colorist every three to four weeks. You’ll also have to be patient since touching up the roots alone can take up to three hours.
Men: Consider a “Heartthrob Bob”
Not too long, but not short, men are embracing “bob-length” hair with layers. Take a look at these handsome heartthrobs (Milo Ventimiglia and Timothee Chalamet) for inspiration. It’s a simple, yet sexy style that practically begs women to run their fingers through it!
Bangs are so versatile and always serving up something fresh. This season, ask your stylist about curtain bangs! Whether parted in the middle or swept to the side, curtain bangs are a great way to frame your face. Hint: they look especially pretty when the rest of your hair is pulled into a low, messy chignon.
Sleek and Blunt
Give your lob life this spring by cutting it straight and super-blunt. That’s right, no layers or angling allowed! Kerry Washington’s take on the style is especially gorgeous. (You’ll need a good hair smoothing product like Oribe Smooth Style Serum and a flat iron for maintenance.)
The pixie is a classic, but the textured pixie is fresh, modern, and unexpected. Kate Hudson is rocking the textured look and making a big impression. Be sure to ask your stylist for extra length on top so that you can give it some texture with a styling paste like Kevin Murphy Free Hold.
