Style to Bloom For: 5 Hot Trends For Spring
Spring is in the air here at Salon Red, and we couldn’t be more excited to strip off those winter hats and let our locks fly. This season it’s a no-holds barred explosion of styles for every sensibility. Short cropped bobs with punk-inspired fringe to demure, braided up-dos reminiscent of 1960s music festivals, these trends all have one thing in common: EASE. That’s right! Spring 2014 is the season of no-fuss style that any girl, no matter what her stylista rating, can rock from day to night. Follow the jump below for an intro to our 5 Favorite Spring Trends.
No matter which coast you’re on, these free flowing curls are effortlessly in vogue. Pair it with this season’s must-have color, platinum, for a look that is pure surfer girl. For our serious East Coast babes, we recommend pairing these undone waves with darker brunette shades to channel serious New York realness. Either way this look transfers effortlessly from the office to a night out with your girls! Products we recommend:
- Bumble & bumble’s Surf line is the perfect tool for creating waves like you’ve just stepped out of the ocean.
- Oribe’s Surfcomber Mousse helps create tousled texture that makes this look pop.
Bobs are Back
The bob has been riding a wave of popularity for hot minute, but this season we’re seeing a new take on this old favorite. Take a bold step with bobs cut right at the chin (or even shorter if you’re feeling daring!) and pair it with an ultra-feminine side swept bang or super-choppy baby fringe to set your style apart from the pack!
Sleek & Straight
Don’t go digging out those flat-irons just yet! Save your hair from some damage and instead try blow-drying your hair straight! Pick up a smoothing product that also provides heat-protection (we recommend trying Straight Blow Dry)and apply mid-shaft to ends before using a round-brush to blow dry. We promise you’ll love the finished (and stick straight) product, but you’ll love the way your still-healthy hair shines even more!
These twisted styles captured our hearts last fall, and they’re still holding strong for spring! Word on the street is that braids are the new blow-dry, and we are definitely drinking that kool-aid. Plaits look beautiful on day one, but after a night of beauty sleep the wispy undone look becomes the portrait of boho romance! No time to braid yourself? Candler Park Stylist Elizabeth Olson is offering a special on braiding services all through April! Book your appointment here!
This season’s runways had accessories for any taste (and a few only a fashion designer could love) but we only had eyes for gold! Gold flakes highlighting deep side parts. Gold barrettes holding back sporty low ponytails. And even Romanesque golden headbands graced the catwalk. This super-chic trend adds a touch of something special to any of spring’s hottest looks!
