Just as with fashion and makeup, popular hairstyles come and go, but you don’t have to be a slave to trendy styles to look great. Some hairstyles just seem to stand the test of time. If you want a new look for your locks this spring but don’t feel like following fads, here are a few timeless hair styles to try.
Chic and sophisticated never go out of style. You can give this classic cut your own spin depending on how short or long you leave it — and on your face shape and hair texture. If you have naturally straight hair, you should have no problem pulling off this look.
How to get the look: Wash your hair with a volumizing shampoo. While your hair is still damp, apply a moisturizing or smoothing serum from the middle to ends of hair to create shine. Blow-dry hair using a diffuser attachment and rounded brush for optimum volume. Go over your whole head with a flatiron for a sleek and stylish finish.
Tousled, textured waves look great on anyone. The relaxed, just-back-from-the-beach style is fresh, sexy and youthful. Use a wave-enhancing product on damp hair to add volume and tousled waves to this messy-chic look.
How to get the look: Starting with damp, towel-dried hair, massage any volumizing product into your roots, or spray damp hair with texturizing spray. Flip your head upside down and finger-comb product through hair. Scrunch your hair while blow-drying to amp up the texture and volume. For a more defined waves, wrap sections of hair around a medium-sized curling iron and tousle hair to loosen.
Deep side part
Whether your hair is pulled back or left loose, a glamorous side part commands attention. The sleek, sexy style can dress up your look when paired with a bold red lip and smoky eyes.
How to get the look: Create an even part one to two inches closer to your ear than your natural part using the tip of a fine-toothed comb. Part from your forehead all the way back to the crown of your head, being sure to keep it straight. Keep the look soft by skipping hairstyling products. If you want to tie hair back, use a glossing serum to add shine.
Long, face-framing layers never go out of style. Layers give your hair movement and volume without sacrificing length. If you normally wear your hair long and straight and want a subtle change, ask your stylist to give you layers.
How to get the look: Use a moisturizing serum to boost shine. Starting with the back of your head, brush small sections of hair forward with a large round brush as you dry to create volume and smooth hair. Move the brush and the dryer together down the hair shaft to dry hair from root to tip.
