Wondering when it’s the right time to upgrade your ’do? We say there’s no time like spring! With more sun, more styles and even more sass to be had, spring-spiration is all around us and we are oh so ready to add some pizzazz to our look. Lucky for you lot, we’ve picked-out our fave hairstyles from some of Hollywood’s top totty to inspire your next styling session. Blowdry brushes at the ready!
Ride those waves
Spring means that it’s nearly summer (look, we can dream, right?!), and the ultimate warm-weather style? Sexy beach-babe waves. The trick here is to begin about halfway down your hair. Pull your hair back into a ponytail and wrap large sections around a curling wand, hold for five seconds and then release. Try Babyliss Vintage Glamour Wave Maker for carefree, natural-looking waves. The finishing touch? A good salt spray. Try a light spritz of OGX Moroccan Sea Salt Spray for texture and shine.
Neat and natural
Blessed with short afro hair? Why not try out this sassy creation and work with what your momma gave you? Wash your hair with warm water (piping hot can take away moisture and dry out delicate afro hair), then spritz in a leave-in conditioner. Try Pantene Leave-On Detangling Milk before detangling hair with a Wide-Tooth Comb and letting hair air dry.
Slick and sleek
Want to look smart, chic and sophisticated but also cool AF? Channel Mila Kunis’s androgynous vibe with a bun. And it gets better. This look works best with second-day hair, so if you’re in a rush/tired/had a bad night’s sleep, this is the style for you. Tip your head forward and backcomb your hair ever so slightly, then pull back hair into a loose ponytail, keeping some volume at the crown of your head. Separate the tail into two sections and tease the hair, then wrap it round into a bun. For a ’do that lasts all day, secure the bun with Superdrug Waved Hairpins. Keep some spares in your clutch and you can clip away your flyaways like magic.
And SERIOUSLY sexy. Naomi is crushing it with her poker-straight do, so take note and spring-clean your style with this striking look. Start with a frizz-reducing, smoothing shampoo and conditioner like TRESemmé Keratin Smoothing Shampoo, then rub a few drops of OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum through your hair before blow-drying with a flat paddle brush. Hair protection is a must, so always spritz with hair protector before using heated tools. VO5 Heat Protect Styling Spray will protect your hair and also smells really good. Just FYI: polish off your look by blow-drying on a cool setting two to three minutes, for slick hair that will last all day and all night.
Curls are back and big news. Just check out our chat with Rochelle Humes to get the lowdown. Ready to try it for yourself? If you have natural waves, tie your hair into a loose bun using a non-slip hair tie like the Superdrug Silicone Band. If your hair is straight and you need tongs to create curls, use a good heat-protection spray – Style Expertise Heat Spray will protect your hair and leave a lasting shine. Take small sections of hair and wrap around your tongs, then leave for five second before releasing. For lasting hold, choose a good hairspray like Schwarzkopf got2b Glued Blasting Freeze Spray, which will help ensure your hair won’t flatten throughout the day.
Get ready to STAND OUT. If you want to mix up your usual hair routine with a style that defies gravity, it’s time to get knotted. Use a moisturising product on your hair that will nourish it all day long. Brush it through and pull hair back into the centre of your head. Secure into a tight ponytail on the top of your head, twist it around and fasten into place with a Superdrug Hair Band. Add John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength Serum and pat lightly on your hair. It will make you look like an absolute babe.
Now get out there with great hair this spring!
