Whether it’s a millimeter, an inch, or a few of each — cutting your hair has a freeing nature to it, and spring is the perfect time to ditch split ends and embrace a new hairstyle. If you’re growing your hair out or are on the prowl for a fresh new chop, these haircut trends will lend you all the inspiration you need to accentuate texture and color for a fresh start this season.
Fringe made a major comeback earlier this year and is a great way to instantly frame your face. The reason we love curtain bangs this season is because it allows anyone to embrace all the drama of a fringe with a less obvious commitment. This hybrid option softly blends with your style to create a fairly low-maintenance feel. A great option for anyone dipping their toes into the fringe scene or for highly textured curl types looking for a seamless transition.
The Shob (Short Bob)
We’ve seen bobs of all lengths the past few seasons but as we get closer to the summer months, shorter bobs or (shobs) will be everywhere. Similar to the length of a “French Bob,” the silhouette will fall closer to the ear or jawline. This is a great option for anyone considering going really short or growing out their pixie. Depending on hair type and texture, interior layers or an undercut may help you achieve this flawless shape.
For those of you who want to keep your length but add a slight change, face-framing layers are your new go-to. Layers are a crucial aspect of any hair cut that allow movement and texture throughout a style. If you feel as though your current cut is lacking style or falling flat, the addition of face-framing layers can revive your look without sacrificing length. Be sure to discuss your styling habits and natural texture pattern with your stylist to ensure they can tailor a perfect finish.
The New Shag
The shag has taken on a new modern shape the past few seasons. Instead of harsh disconnects, the lines have been softened to create a “faux shag” of sorts that allows hair of all textures and density to easily achieve a shag-like look. In essence, this cut has a traditional full shape and then uses texturizing techniques to add interest without changing the silhouette.
