Spring Hair Trends

Spring Hair Trends
Spring is here!! The days are getting longer, people are out and about and it’s less
depressing checking the weather forecast. With Spring comes rebirth, renewal, and new looks.

Spring hair is about texture and softer color schemes. Undone styles, loose
braids, and disheveled waves are everywhere right now. The more casual it looks, the more on trend it is. Boho waves have evolved into the softer beach wave, or undone wave. Can’t tell the difference between boho waves and beach waves? Boho waves are day one hair, beach waves are day two hair. These waves are best achieved using a large barrel curling iron and a working hair spray. Davines' Medium Hold hairspray is perfect for holding loose waves. For enhancing the look, try Davines' Sea Salt Spray or Alterna Caviar texture spray scrunched
through after curling.

Pinterest says you can braid your hair wet and let it dry that way to achieve a very loose wave. This works best if your hair already has natural texture, and if the thought of sleeping with your wet hair in braids isn’t super annoying. A faster way to do this is to braid dry hair, hit the braid with a flat iron, let it cool, then take out the braids. Scrunch a salt spray through and you have undone waves (pictured-below, left)!(image source: Misteranhcotran.com, https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/5c/75/5e/5c755e4819264b4b7e157a2193dd71b2.jpg)

This look (pictured-above, right (image source: Flipboard, http://hbz.h-cdn.co/assets/cm/15/03/480x720/54bc27e6b0688_-_nway-hairtrends-
loose-long-waves-ferretti-clp-rs15-6760-lg.jpg ), from Fashion Week, is the perfect example of undone waves. The barely-there waves are on point for spring, and survive the more humid temperatures.

Braids are still big for spring, which is good because many of us (hair professionals at Charles Penzone salons) spent the winter learning how to braid. This casual updo exemplifies spring hair by being messy. Braids are no longer meant to be perfect.

This messy braid above is easy and carefree. Fashion week designers loved showing braids that appeared to be slept in. Braid your hair using medium hold paste to keep everything in line, and then run a small amount of the paste through ends that hang out for more texture.

With Spring’s more undone and less fussy looks comes softer color. Ombre has shifted into sombre, which is just a softer transition from light to dark. Colors have more of a “rooted”look and the light pieces are staying within the family of the root color, instead of being a harsh contrast. Sombre is also focusing on “tortoise shell colors”- varying shades of honey, gold, brown, and caramel that mimic tortoise shell patterns.

Warmer weather is leading to warmer colors in the hair overall. Coppers, rich browns, and golden blondes are showing up everywhere for spring. Many celebrities have already gotten a head start and are sporting newly copper looks. Your stylist can help you achieve these beautiful warm spring colors with our newly launched Davines color line. Beautiful, shiny color will get your hair ready for spring and summer!

Maintain your color with the new Minu collection from Davines. The shampoo, conditioner, and serum are illuminating and designed to protect your beautiful color from fading.
