Maybe the only thing that excites me more than a spring makeup or nail trend (and best believe I love a good pastel moment) is a spring hairstyle. By the end of winter, I’m beyond ready to shed my layers, beanies, and jacket hoods and try something different with my hair that doesn’t involve untangling it from my scarf, ya feel me? And this year, I’m *especially* excited, because the spring 2022 hair trends are so good. On the Fashion Week runways this season, we saw some old ’90s faves, lots of accessorizing, a bunch of cool updos, and a ton of hairstyles that embraced each model’s own texture. Excited? Same. So keep scrolling for some hair looks you’ll want to wear all spring long, plus the tools and products you’ll need to try them out yourself.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS TEXTURIZNG SPRAY
Tresemme Dry Texture Finishing Spray
If you have baby fine hair that slips right out of a baby braid, a spritz of this texturizing spray will give your strands the grip they need to stay put. Spray a little bit throughout to give the rest of your hair a bit more body and volume.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS LIGHTWEIGHT MOUSSE
Design Essentials Natural Almond & Avocado Curl Enhancing Mousse
To pull off the look yourself, you’re gonna need a gel, hairspray, and a good mousse. This curly hair mousse with almond and avocado oils has a lightweight formula that adds bounce (not crunch) to your curls and enhances and defines your natural pattern.
HOW TO DO IT: THESE COLORFUL CLIPS
Aostar Snap Hair Clip 100PCS
Paint your hair clips yourself if you want to create your own custom color scheme or get yourself a pack of colorful clips and match them to your looks.
HOW TO DO IT: THESE PEARL EMBELLISHMENTS
Lelet NY Philippa Pearl Flower Clip Set of 3
With this set of 14k gold clips, you truly don’t need jewelry to wear with it. And thanks to their flower shape, they’re also perfect for spring.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS FLORAL BOW
LoveShackFancy Women’s Lorna Barrette
Look, you’re either a bow person or you’re not. And if you are, then you definitely need a barrette bow like this to pop on whenever your look needs a little accessorizing.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS GEM STONE BOBBY PIN
Jennifer Behr Lenora Bobby Pin
All it takes is a few embellished barrettes, like these Swarovski-studded bobby pins, to DIY the runway look.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS HAIR MIST
R+Co Bleu Essential Hair Tonic
Like a hairspray but better (read: lighter), this hair tonic gives a little hold and a lot of shine. Use it to prep damp hair before you style it for soft texture.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS VOLUMIZING SPRAY
R+Co Balloon Dry Volume Spray
For the voluminous French twists, you’ll def want a can of this volumizing hair product to prep the hair before pinning it up and to build the height of the bouffant on top. This spray adds a ton of texture without weighing down your strands (because that would defeat the purpose, right?).
HOW TO DO IT: THIS FLAT IRON
Ghd Platinum+ Professional Performance Hair Styler
To get your hair to lay perfectly flat, you’ll want to first grab a flat iron and straighten your hair in the direction you want it to go. This straightener regulates its own temperature so it’s never too hot and, unlike the one in eighth grade, it won’t totally fry your hair after a few passes.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS BLOW DRYER
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
With a braid this long, you’re bound to have a few pieces sticking out here and there. To really smooth things out, hairstylist Larry King used this hair dryer and the flyaway attachment to seal those suckers back down.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS RIBBON
Creative Ideas PSF1102-175 Solid Satin Ribbon
Easily add a pop of fun, springy color to your braid with a strip of ribbon. Tie it to the base, then incorporate the ribbon into your three-strand braid. To then give your braid structure, like in the example above, use wire that blends and bends into your hair.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS HAIRSPRAY
Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray
To keep the middle hair part sharp, secure the back half of your hair into a ponytail first. Then, spray the front with this strong hairspray and slick back one side of your hair at a time. This spray also protects against humidity—a must when we’re talking about spring.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS HAIR GEL
Pattern Strong Hold Gel
Before you get to braiding the ponytail, you gotta pull it all back first. And to do so without any bumps or stray hairs, you’ll want a hair gel to keep everything soft but sleek, like this one designed for slicked looks.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS HAIRBRUSH
Briogeo Vegan Boar Bristle Hair Brush
To really get those hairs smooth, flat, and pulled tight, you need the tension of a boar bristle brush. This vegan option with synthetic bristles gives you all the control and polished results without the big price tag.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS GLITTER
Glow Up Academy Glitter in As If
Play up your natural texture and sprinkle a little—nay, a lot—of glitter in your strands. Use a loose glitter eyeshadow is you have it or order one of these pots of ice pink holographic glitter.
