3 Breakout Haircut Trends to Wear This Spring (Before Everyone Else)
In the spirit of honesty, we'd like to disclose that there is no "right" way to kick off a new season. But in Spring, it's certainly not not sprinkling your iCal with al fresco brunches and outdoor concerts (then immediately online-ordering a brand-new wardrobe to wear to all of the above). The itch to get moving tends to rise with the temperature, and you want your hair to match that energy. The only prerequisite to firing up the group chat, then, is to book yourself a haircut.
Here's what you should ask for, boiled down to one word: movement. "Every time Spring comes along, hair tends to get more layered," said master hairstylist Edward Tricomi of Warren Tricomi Salons. "In Winter, styles are sleeker and straighter, but that's harder to accomplish in the warmer months. With more humidity, you need more movement because your hair will swell more."
Like hemlines, cuts will also be getting shorter and shorter (that's because "people like to dust their hair when it gets warmer," he said), making now prime time to lob it all off, if you're so inclined. If you're looking for the exact haircut trend to get you in the Spring spirit — even if the only plan you have on the agenda is sitting on the couch binge-watching Love Is Blind for the foreseeable future — we're breaking down our three favorites ahead.
