The Greeks have been giving us serious style goals since, maybe, forever. Talk about the toga and you’ll hear thunderous applause. Proceed to the front braid entwined with gold leaves, and you’ll find a legion of women on their knees, hands on chest. So this season, we had a little chat with Aphrodite, the Goddess of Beauty and Love, as she chilled under a Sakura tree, hair dressed in a lovely bun, sipping on a glass of peach iced tea. She seemed happy to help us mortals decode a few sassy spring hair trends to get us trending.
For mortals, one and all
You could be a short haired beauty or you could be bestowed with Rapunzel’s tresses. These pretty hair trends are for EVERYONE.
The top knot bids a gay farewell while the low bun takes centre stage. Spruce up your locks with abstract, funky interpretations of whimsical buns that sing happily of spring.
Yup, there is a lot of banging when it involves radical haircuts. We totally vote for front or side bangs that border on cutesy while still allowing you individuality.
“Keep it simple.” Yawn* Why be Plain Jane when you could pop, shimmy and shine? Dazzle up your locks with ribbon moments, bejewelled Victorian hair combs and tiara hairbands that get your queening mode on!
Boho and loose spell “last season.” Do the braid right with tight, streamlined and functional renderings that accentuate your facial features and celebrate them gloriously.
Do the Red
Walk in the proud steps of RiRi’s red, red waves. Hues of burgundy and copper-red are called into being this season to give your tresses a love alert.
For Short Hair Mortals
It’s a misnomer that cropped lock beauties have to remain content with boring, plain old bobs. Look around, there’s no dearth of easy-to-manage styles to amp up your looks.
Embrace loose, tousled waves in your bob to accentuate movement, volume and bounce.
The blunt cut turns sexy. Goodbye, school-girl hair. And hello to the hip, upbeat razored blunt.
Do the choppy bob minus the bangs. Study Jennifer Lawrence’s rude layers to spice things up.
For Mortals with Medium-Length Hair
Having nice, medium length hair is awesome and versatile. Here are some stunning ways to wear your tresses this spring.
Nice and Thick
Keep your tresses fuller like Jessica’s. Stock up on the bounce factor with a straight line finish.
Bend it Midway
Maybe Plain Jane did have her perks. One of them being no-fuss gorgeous hair.
For Long Hair Mortals
Longer hair is sooo versatile. Pin it up, braid it, or let it cascade down your back like a silken waterfall.
Conquer beguiling hair without trying too hard. Head for an undone symmetry to even out the game.
The Clean Cut
Go no-nonsense by giving your hair the clean look. This one is your happy solution to confused haircut moments.
Face Hugging Goodness
Look picture perfect as you layer-up your hair to frame the contours of your features.
Long and Weighted
Be yourself and let your hair say just that. Rest your tresses by flaunting them just the way they are.
Before your go, here’s a tiny message from Aphrodite. “Love yourself, but love your hair more.”
