After a few long months of shoving our hair underneath hats and caps and between ear muffs, it’s time to let your shiny strands do the talking. We spoke with 6 local hair experts on what fun trends they are seeing this spring, from rose gold bobs to Gisele Bundchen’s “bronde” hair color.
“Mid length waves are in between a bob and long hair. The length sits right at the collar-bone that helps frame the face and opens up the neckline. Style with a flat iron or sleep with wet braids...tousle to give a looser and lived-in appearance. Use a dry texture spray like Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray or Bumble & Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish.”
"This spring, I love what I've been calling the 'grown out (or grown up) lob.' It's the perfect time of year, to opt for a nice blunt or choppy line that falls below the collar bone. An easy way to switch it up from just a middle part, is to add a long fringe that hits just below the brows and follows the brow line. We've been seeing this on celebs like Felicity Jones, Chloe Moretz, and Mandy Moore."

The Trend: “Bronde” Hair Color
“A hair color trend that we’re going to be seeing this spring is called “bronde,” which is a cross between golden brown and blonde. It’s the color of Gisele Bundchen’s hair – depending on the light in a room or a photograph, she could look like she’s a blonde or a brunette. The dimensional color is achieved with the balayage hair coloring technique. The base shade is a light brown tone and a warm blonde hue is painted by hand throughout the hair strands and around the face to add lightness. This is a very flattering color trend for almost all skin tones since it’s so warm and very natural-looking - it’s a great shade to segue from spring to summer too. Once spring is over, a little more blonde can be added.”
“I’m finding much inspiration from Euro fashion icons of the 70’s & 80’s-Bianca Jagger, Debbie Harry, and Stevie Nicks. I love the boldness of the choppy bobs, lived in waves, and middle partings. Color plays a big role in each look whether subtle dimension or bold lightning all to create the low maintenance of lived in color. If you want to make a bold statement this spring/summer do it with your hair!”
