March means spring is just around the corner. Which, more importantly, means spring trends are just around the corner (and for the lucky ones—spring break). Trends are not reserved for clothing and accessories alone. Some of our favorite trends of the moment are for hair. We’re obsessing over the perfect beach wave à la Kate Hudson and every Victoria’s Secret Angel, ever. We long for braided updos and really messy buns. We’re pretty much fangirling over all of the celeb and blogger inspired ‘dos for warm weather, and we think you should be, too. Remember, if anyone asks—we woke up like this.
Check out some of our favorites:
Braided updos are having a major moment right now. We’ve seen them on everyone from Nicole Richie to the Olsen twins to Olivia Palermo. It’s official—we’re obsessed. This style looks a little intimidating, but this tutorial proves that if you have five minutes and a lot of bobby pins, you can rock this boho go-to in no time.
Beach waves are every Florida girl’s staple. They’re easy, they’re fun—you really can’t go wrong. There are plethora of different ways to achieve this look. Some are even no-heat for those days that you just aren’t feeling it. We love this simple video on how to get the look without all the fuss. It’s like bedhead, but better.
Messy buns are perfect for the times that you want an effortless look that is still stylish. We like to think of it as “messy chic.” This is the perfect hairstyle for when you aren’t ready for the headache of a topknot. Your bun should be all about the texture. Teasing + product + bun = perfect ‘do for cruising 30A
