Spring's here and just as in fashion and beauty, hair trends are quick to come and go with the seasons. So keep your strands in style with these four spring hair trends straight from the experts, plus one of our own.

"The most asked-about trend for spring is 'semi dressed hair,'" says Carmine Minardi, co-owner of Minardi Salon in New York City.

Start by applying a volumizing mousse (Minardi suggests Minardi Abundance). "Blow dry your hair using just your fingers, giving your hair a messy, tousled look," says Minardi. To tame frizzies, use a straightening iron on a low heat setting and don't flatten your strands completely.

To put up your hair, "Take a section of hair, about four to five inches in circumference at the crown (top of the head), and begin teasing the root area from the scalp to about three to four inches up the hair shaft for lift," Minardi explains. "Next, take a soft boar bristle brush and while leaving the rest of the hair around the face out, begin lightly brushing the top layers of hair back to the crown and up on the sides until all the teasing cannot be seen. Now brush all that hair to one side of your head. Place bobby pins to secure the roots, then fold the rest of the hair to the other side and pin with hair pins."
