'The 411' on Spring Hairdo's

Hi all,

Spring is finally here...thank goodness! So I'd thought I'd share a quick post with you, based on some of the 'hair trends' of this season...I mean, we all must be in tune with the times, right? ;)


I even find myself wanting a change of hair colour/style as the seasons change. The problem is, there are so many styles & colours to choose from...here are just some of the few I've discovered which would be stunning for Spring 2012!


Fringe benefits: Fringes are back in a big way, with models donning the look on the runways at Marni, Versace and Prada. While they’re as popular as ever, there isn’t one “look” when it comes to the fringe this season. They can be wide and thick, wispier and pushed to one side, or gamine and short. Make it work for you: If you have a square face, opt for a side-swept fringe to help soften angles. Alternatively, choose a curved shape to balance out a more pronounced chin.


Retro red hair: This season, trade solid colours for subtle highlights in a range of soft strawberry, pastel apricots and rich copper tones. Make it work for you: This shade is ideal for those with light lengths, and flattering against a pale complexion with cool undertones. However, if you’re darker, you can try the trend in a more subtle way: consider understated red tints to add a radiant sheen to glossy chocolate locks.

Volume: It’s a fact: big hair equals high glamour. "It's great for the party season because it's a change from most people's more subdued day-to-day styles – big hair looks different, it's sexier, and if it's a new look for you, people will notice," says hairdresser and Goldwell ambassador Shane Henning. Make it work for you: While some of us are blessed with bountiful lengths, others need more assistance to fake a fabulous 'do. Create volume in flat hair by increasing protein and other essential nutrients in your diet, boosting your body's hydration by drinking water, and using volumising haircare and styling products.

The natural blonde: From ash to champagne, there’s no doubt about it – pale strands spell summer. While platinum tones dominated the runways last year, this time around it’s about a natural, yet luxurious result. Make it work for you: Instead of one solid colour, experiment with a range of shades for the most believable blonde. A mix of golden highlights is particularly great to add warmth to fair complexions.

So what do you think? What 'hair trend' do you think will rule this Spring?
