Simple Spring Hairstyles You'll Love
If you are in a beauty rut, try something new with your hair this spring. Check out these hot spring hairstyles.
This spring, look for hairstyles that are inspired by the '60s. At the Peter Som Spring 2012 Fashion Week presentation, we saw '60s-inspired hairstyles with dramatic side parts and forehead sweeping bangs. Peter Som says that spring 2012 is all about balancing strength and femininity, and that definitely comes through in this style.
"It's a little bit like Julie Christie-meets-Courtney Love. It's quite a rock and roll texture, but the hairstyle is very much sourced from the '60s," explained Wella Professionals global creative director Eugene Souleiman. He described the look as "kind of bad hair for a bad girl coming from a rich family." Souleiman offers these tips to recreate the look.

Summer isn't here quite yet, but long, loose, beachy waves are definitely in for spring. After shampooing, roughly blow dry your hair to add volume. Then, spray texturizing spray throughout your hair and wind it into a low bun, pinning it into place. Apply heat to the bun with your blow dryer using the diffuser attachment. When you hair is completely dry, give it a shot of cool air to set it. Once cool, remove the pins and release the bun. Run your fingers through your hair for loose, tousled waves.
If you are thinking about going short, now is the time to do it. Short -- super short -- hair is on-trend for spring. Pixie cuts are all the rage. Low maintenance short haircuts work for straight or curly hair. Just remember if you have curly hair, don't leave it too long on the top or you'll end up looking like a Q-tip.
