Check out these 15 beautiful spring hair ideas to add a breath of fresh air to your appearance.

1. Long Layers

We've all faced the timeless salon dilemma at some point: wanting a fresh, updated haircut while loving our current length too much to go beyond a simple trim.

Embracing tousled texture and complementing multi-dimensional hair colour doesn’t require an elaborate cut.

Let the layers do the talking. Maintain long layers to maximise volume and movement, enhancing the beauty of your hair.

GK Hair's Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner are part of their professional hair care range designed to hydrate and nourish hair.

2. Side Bangs

To freshen up your lob for spring, consider adding some side bangs. They're not as drastic as full-on bangs and can complement any age group.

Also known as hide bangs, these can involve regular bangs pushed away from the face. They effortlessly complement nearly any hairstyle, concealing excess forehead space and adding flair to even the most basic cuts.

Keep your tresses bright, blonde, and brass-free with GK Hair Silver Bombshell Shampoo, a real multitasker that hydrates, cleanses, and tones your hair simultaneously.

3. Frenchie Bangs

From the iconic French bob to the coveted French girl waves, Parisian-inspired hair remains a perennial trend, embodying effortless, slightly tousled, and ultra-chic aesthetics. The newest addition to this repertoire?

French bangs—an airy, romantic fringe that exudes a breezy and subtly undone allure.

For that elusive "je ne sais quoi," these bangs are the perfect choice.

They strike a balance between not too blunt and not too wispy, giving you just the right touch of sophistication.

4. Brunette Beach Waves

Perfect for spring (and equally captivating during cooler seasons), beachy waves evoke a natural, tousled appearance with relaxed curls and effortless texture.

While they say blondes have more fun, with a brunette shade like this, we're inclined to play devil's advocate.

5. Romantic Waves

When envisioning romantic styles, soft waves, and voluminous curls come to mind. With spring's undeniable romantic aura, loose curls become one of the most versatile hairstyles, suitable for both casual and formal occasions.

This hairstyle accentuates your innate beauty, exuding a feminine charm with its gentle waves. Its versatility is evident, as it complements all face shapes due to the loose, natural-looking curls.

Talking about styling, GK Hair Serum Argan Oil is designed to provide nourishment, shine, and manageability to the hair, and is a perfect foil for your curls.

6. Lilac Hair

Opting for a lilac hue is among the top hairstyle trends this spring, seamlessly complementing the season's palette while effortlessly drawing attention.

To achieve the perfect shade of purple, thorough consultation with your hairstylist is essential. Achieving the ideal highlights may require multiple sessions, so plan accordingly.

This colour is most effective on blonde or pre-lightened hair for optimal results.

7. Long Wavy Hair with Fringe

For those with long, straight hair seeking a subtle transformation, consider curling the ends and introducing a full fringe. Soft, wavy curls epitomise the essence of spring, while the fringe adds a touch of charm and edge to the style.

This hairstyle complements all hair colours beautifully. Its simplicity allows for quick and effortless styling, making it a beloved go-to option for many women.

8. Bottleneck Bangs

Bottleneck Bangs are making waves in the world of hair trends! They're a fantastic way to refresh your appearance, and their versatility knows no bounds.

They're especially wonderful if you enjoy wearing your hair up but still desire some softness framing your face.

Moreover, on those lazy days, simply toss your hair up into a messy bun and focus on styling the bangs. It's a clever trick to make it seem like you've put in a lot of effort, even when time is scarce.

9. ‘70s Mid-Length Layered Shag

The nostalgic '70s hairstyles are making a strong comeback, and the shag is set to remain in vogue this upcoming season. This effortlessly chic, tousled appearance is characterised by choppy layers of varying lengths.

The mid-length shag is particularly coveted this spring, offering that rockstar aesthetic with minimal upkeep. If you're after a laid-back yet stylish vibe, this is the hairstyle to embrace!

10. ‘90s Supermodel Layers

The '90s are making a major comeback in 2024, particularly in fashion and hair. This means that the iconic '90s supermodel layers are reclaiming the spotlight as one of the hottest hair trends this spring.

To truly channel this look, think about adding face-framing layers and voluminous waves to create that glamorous and voluminous style reminiscent of Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer.

11. Tousled Pixie

The pixie cut remains timeless, embodying a daring, feminine, and chic appeal. This hairstyle features longer, textured layers on top for added dimension and movement.

Its versatility allows for a playful, tousled look or a sleek, polished finish.

Perfect for those who seek a bold change, this cut is low-maintenance and effortlessly stylish.

12. Curly Bob

Curly hair is incredibly beautiful and unique, but it can be a challenge to manage and style. If you're looking for a way to update your curly locks for spring, consider a bob haircut.

This style is chic and modern, and it helps to define and enhance your natural curls. The curly bob is easy to maintain and gives you a fresh, new look for the season.

13. Choppy Layers

If you're looking for a hairstyle that's full of movement and texture, choppy layers are the way to go. This style is perfect for adding volume to thin hair or giving thick hair a more lightweight, dynamic look.

Choppy layers can be tailored to suit any hair length and face shape, making them a versatile choice for anyone looking to update their look for spring.

14. ‘70s Birkin Bangs

It's time to embrace tie-dye and paisley prints as the '70s revival is upon us. While we can't foresee every '70s trend making a comeback, our intuition suggests that Birkin Bangs from that era will experience a resurgence.

This haircut is particularly well-suited for individuals with type 2 waves (a gentle S-shaped wave) as this texture effortlessly embodies a carefree, free-spirited look with minimal styling required.

15. Eyelash Bangs

This year, expect bangs that are longer than you’ve ever seen before. Hairstylists predict people will be wearing long and wispy eyelash bangs which, according to Los Angeles-based hairstylist Sophie Rose Gutterman are “almost too long but in the best way.”

If your hair is naturally straight, these bangs don’t require as much styling as other types of bangs (like curtain bangs) because “they can be worn straight down which gives a super sexy mysterious vibe,” says Gutterman.

How can I protect my hair from springtime humidity?

To combat the frizz and flatness often caused by springtime humidity, start with a nourishing shampoo and conditioner that hydrate and strengthen your hair. Use leave-in treatments or serums designed to seal the hair cuticle and lock in moisture. Additionally, consider styles that embrace the natural texture of your hair, reducing the need for frequent heat styling and helping to keep your hair healthy and vibrant throughout the season.
