Spring Trend Watch

Well, I guess we can TALK about spring, even though it doesn't FEEL at all like spring yet.
(Did that sound bitter?)

Let's look (longingly) ahead to the spring weather and go over a few of the styling trends that you will see this season...

If you're loving your long hair but need a few ideas to update, BRAIDS are a good way to go. Not a Marsha Brady French braid. Not Bo Derek braids. Think Jennifer Aniston at the Oscars braids. Now THAT is the spring braid we are talking about. One or two braids (or three) that are nice, small, and clean - very chic.

If you want to pull off a more sexy look (who doesn't, really?), keep the braid loose. See Kate Hudson for the always sexy look.

This season is still about hair with lots of texture. Not so smooth, sleek, and perfectly ironed. Use your natural texure, if you have it. If your hair is perfectly straight, try braiding your hair in several different braids, spray it with a thermal styling spray, flat iron over the top of each braid, let it cool down, and then undo them. Voila! Texture.

Ponytails are still great. (Yay for me!) Although, they never really go out of style. The way you do the ponytail is what determines if it is "fresh" or not. Wear a super sleek pony with a section of hair covering your rubber band, or hair with lots of texture and loosely pulled up into the ponytail.

If you have (or want) short hair, it's all about the Long Bob. Think Gwyneth Paltrow, or Heidi Klum. Very classy, and very sassy!

These are just a few of the styling trends you'll be seeing this spring. Give them a try.

On a side note, for those of you who are paying attention to all of the bright colors in fashion for spring: If you are a little leary, but still want to play... Paint a bright color on your short nails. Try OPI's "Feelin' Hot-Hot-Hot" to give you a little splash of the spring hues.

And, finally, we will be attending one of our annual hair shows in May where we will learn all sorts of new cut and color techniques. I'll keep you posted on what we find there.
