Spring Hair Styles for 2011

You all know my excitement about spring coming and my love for spring colors, but new spring makeup trends also call for a few cute hair styles to go with them. It’s time to get a little more excited, plan out your new outfits and start experimenting with which hair trend will work with your face shape. Without further ado, take a look at what’s in store for the best spring hair styles.

Want a hot dog with that bun?

Black swan has been the vehicle for bringing buns back and with a vengeance. They were creeping up on us with the low chignons, but now is the time to bring them out in full force. Low buns, very high buns, ballet buns, you name it and there’s one suited for you. For a low bun like those on the runway at Nina Ricci, start with a center part and pull your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Make it oh-so fashionable by covering your ears with your hair and twist the ponytail into a loose knot. If you want something very relaxed and bohemian, you can pull a few strands of hair and let it hang on the sides of your face.

Bang it out

There’s always an appropriate set of bangs to go with any hair style, but for spring fringe screams fun. Getting bangs can be scary for some, but telling your hair stylist to add some fringe-y bangs can update your entire look. I’m not talking about the very straight, precisely cut bangs. The trick is to leave it a little longer on the sides of your face so it blends. It’s very 70’s, it’s very chic and it’s easy to style and grow out.

Tip from Celebrity Stylist Dusty Simington – Blow dry your bangs, brushing them side to side to have them fall perfectly in line.

Side parts and swoops

Extreme side parts are still lingering over our heads. If you have a long hair style, add some gorgeous messy waves for spring or with shorter hair use this side part and create a swoop. The swoop is very modern, space age fun. This fresh spring hair style could potentially cover your eyes or you can keep it simple, but if you’re not in the mood to do anything drastic, it’s a fabulous trend to try.
