Hair is an essential part of every woman’s look, and a lousy hair day can often translate to an overall bad day. This is a shame because there are a few steps you can take to ensure you have the hair of your dreams. Especially after the winter season, you want to give your hair a subtle refresh to get you ready for the warmer months.
From the hair color trends of 2020 to the ultimate beauty salon packages, read on for four easy steps to follow for perfect spring hair.
1. Update your color
If you are looking to enhance your look for spring, then consider trying out one of the season’s top hair colors. This year, all of the trendiest hair colors are extra gorgeous, which means you are guaranteed to find one that suits your look. Whether you are looking for a chic shade of blonde or shots of pastel pink, this is the time to refresh your winter hair and go for something fresh.
Buttercream blonde with a mix of warm hues looks gorgeous on short, wavy hair and helps your hair to look super-sleek and dimensional. “Twilighting” is this year’s top hair trend, it’s brown with warm, golden undertones, and it relies on a mix of balayage and babylights.
Finally, for the more adventurous, you can do a spin on Pantone’s Color Of the Year for 2020, classic blue, and have a muted blue shade (like Billie Eilish) for some edge to your style.
2. Get a good cut
After the winter months, it is vital to have a good cut to keep your hair looking healthy.
For shorter cuts and bobs, it is recommended that you get a haircut every three to seven weeks to ensure it looks precise and polished. Mid-hair lengths generally need to get a cut about three or four times a year to dust the ends and touch up layers, while longer hair should be cut every eight weeks; otherwise, the shape will have completely grown out.
However, if your hair is more prone to split ends or you have a lot of chemical treatments done, having a trim every eight weeks will help keep it healthy.
For natural textured hair, hairstylists recommend having no more than 12 weeks between cuts. Whatever length you have, make sure you apply argan oil to the ends of your hair to help treat it, and camouflage split ends in between cuts.
3. Book a hair treatment
Treating your hair correctly is essential if you want to have the healthiest hair possible. One of the best ways to look after your hair is to give it regular hair treatments.
Generally, there are two types of hair treatments: reconstructors and moisturizers. Reconstructors make the hair stronger and are usually protein-based, while moisturizers balance the moisture content of the cortex (middle of your hair). If your hair is in bad shape, you may need to do weekly at-home treatments, as well as fortnightly salon treatments.
The winter season puts various stresses and excesses on your hair, which can make it exceptionally damaged and dry; therefore, you certainly want to book a hair treatment before the spring. The best hair treatment salon in Dubai offers a wide range of hair treatments, including wash and blow-dry, macadamia hair treatment, gloss treatment, and Fibre Clinix, a new, personalized hair treatment. Contact your local hair salon to see what kind of treatments they have available.
4. Purchase some hair accessories
One of the best ways to update your hair for spring is to purchase some trendy hair accessories. Luckily, there is a vast array on the market, so you are sure to find ones that work well with your closet. From pearl slides to headbands, when it comes to accessorizing your hair, anything goes.
Pearl slides elevate any outfit when they are oversized, as do hairbands, which are like upholstery for your hair. This spring, look to add a baby pink one to your collection, although black and nude are the most versatile options.
Headscarves are incredibly versatile, too, and can be tied whimsically around your head or in a retro-style. You can find plenty of headscarves at vintage or second-hand stores meaning there are lots of pretty patterns waiting to be worn.
Even with their 90s aesthetic, scrunchies are another very on-trend hair accessory. Use yours to style a ponytail or a bun. Finally, one of the most accessible hair accessories to obtain is a simple ribbon that can be added to a ponytail, topknot, or low-slung bun. You can buy these from the craft store or save these when you make your next fashion or beauty purchase.
