Spring has traditionally been a good time for change and as we move through this month, we are seeing an upsweep of celebrities who have done some serious “spring cleaning” with their hair. Some of my favorite new hairstyles seen around town to follow:
Perhaps she is looking to shed ‘Anastasia Steele’, but Dakota Johnson was seen sporting a much shorter nape-length hairdo. Her trademark fringe and her deep auburn color remain, offering this gorgeous actress a youthful upgrade she was needing.
Things to now before getting her cut: fringe can be a hassle to maintain – be mindful to cowlicks and other hair patterns that might prohibit the perfect bang.
There are no more colorful ‘fireworks’ in her new hair. This gorgeous singer/songwriter is now back to her deep espresso hair with a shaggy Betty Boop inspired cut. The cut is stunning with her bone-structure and is a healthy move given all of the intense color processing her locks have endured. This haircut provides a sultry, adult look to the usual whimsical Katy.
Things to now before getting her cut: going dramatically short can be both liberating and terrifying. The grow out period can be a long and awkward one, so be certain you are ready for your boy-cut before you prematurely cut your mane at the hair salon.
She really can wear it all – long or short hair. Jessica Alba’s new ‘bob’ is a dramatic departure from her usual long flowing locks. The actress showcased her newly sheared locks and stunning babylights – a fresh alternative to her former, somewhat harsh ombre coloring.
Things to now before getting her cut: always be sure you have the face for a chin level cut – rounder faces tend to carry longer locks better. I always recommend test-running a shorter cut using wigs first. It is the ideal way to ensure the length flatters your features before making a permanent change.
From beachy-surfer girl to sophisticated style, Chrissy Teigen’s decision to create a textured lob was a good one. The model’s hair was cut to optimize volume, with textured pieces that highlight her sun-kissed ends.
Things to now before getting her cut: this haircut requires maintenance, unlike the traditional bob. Haircuts are needed more frequently to keep this cut at the proper length. Texturized pieces can grow out rapidly, leaving your lob in disarray.
