Revitalize Your Look: 21 Long Hairstyles for Spring

Ahhh….spring! The weather is warming up, less layers are required, and it’s the time of year where new fashion and hair trends are popping up everywhere.

If you are lucky enough to have long, luscious hair, then you are likely itching for a new style to test out. Take a peek at our favorite long hairstyles for Spring 2015!

21. Braided Bombshell

Braids of all types have been gaining popularity over the past several seasons, and they aren’t going anywhere! This loose, casual braid is totally swoonworthy.

Long Braided Hairstyle for SpringLong Braided Hairstyle for Spring Back

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair that’s either dried naturally or been blown dry using a round brush to achieve some volume at the roots.
  2. Use a back ombing brush and gently backcomb the hair at the crown of your head.
  3. Begin a French braid in the back of your head about three inches above the nape of your neck.
  4. Continue with the braid until there is no more hair left to braid. Use a very small, clear hair tie to secure the end of your braid.
  5. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This look is awesome if you have long hair that’s thick and you are hoping to get your hair back and out of your face without compromising on style. If you have a round or oval face shape, this look will suit you well.

Recommended Products:

If your hair tends to get frizzy with flyaways, use a very light cream on your hair before you secure it back into a braid. I like Grooming Cream by Bumble and Bumble. Apply a very very small amount of this, mostly through the ends, then braid your hair.

20. Side Pony Perfection

This side pony is totally dreamy because it is soft and not too harshly pulled back. It is a must try for you long haired ladies this season!

Soft Side Pony for Spring

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair.
  2. Use a medium-sized curling iron to curl each section of your hair.
  3. Once each section has been curled, leave out a few small sections of hair around your hairline, then secure all of your hair back into a low ponytail that is just slightly to the side.
  4. Spray everything with a light hold hairspray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This look is great if you have long hair that’s fine to medium textured. A round face shape will be complemented by this look.

Recommended Products:

Try using Classic Hairspray by Bumble and Bumble after you have finished styling your hair. It’s light and won’t get too sticky or crunchy.

19. Naturally Curled

Curly girls, rejoice! Here is a look for you that allows your natural texture to steal the show this spring!

Naturally Curly Long Hairstyle for SpringNaturally Curly Long Hairstyle for Spring Side

How To Style:

  1. Begin with damp hair that has been towel dried. Part your hair as desired.
  2. Apply a curl enhancing cream and smoothing serum to your hair.
  3. Use a diffuser to dry your hair.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This look is best for those with naturally long, curly hair. If you have a square face shape, this style will suit you well.

Recommended Products:

I love mixing Paul Mitchell’s Sculpting Foam with Paul Mitchell’s Super Skinny Serum. Combine the two together in your hands and then apply it to your hair when wet.

Tips:

If you have curly hair and you don’t have a diffuser, you are missing out! A diffuser is a tool that attaches to your blowdryer and it diffuses the air so that your curls dry slower and more evenly.

18. Bohemian and Braided

Here’s another side braid that’s a great option for keeping your long hair out of your face. It’s perfectly undone and the perfect combination of neat yet messy!

Long Bohemian Side Braid Hairstyle

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair that’s parted to one side.
  2. Gather all of your hair to one side and loosely braid it. Secure the end with a hair tie.
  3. Once your hair is secured back, grab the braid and gently pull it apart so it looks a bit more imperfect.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style will really work for any texture of hair! If you have a round or oval shaped face, this look is a great option for you.

Recommended Products:

If your hair tends to get a lot of flyaways, spray it with a working spray before you begin your braid. I love Does It All Hairspray by Bumble and Bumble.

17. Creatively Crimped

This loose ,crimped look is a fresh take on an old school style! Better yet, it’s super easy to create.

Loose Crimped Long Hairstyle for SpringLoose Crimped Long Hairstyle for Spring Back

How To Style:

  1. Begin with damp hair. Part your hair where desired, then create two French braids.
  2. Secure each braid with a loose ponytail holder.
  3. Leave the braids in for at least 2-3 hours so your hair fully dries. If possible, sleep in the braids and don’t take them out until the morning.
  4. Once your hair has dried, remove the ponytail holders from the braids and undo the braids.
  5. Gently run your fingers through your strands and apply a shine spray to your hair.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

If you have very fine hair that you want to make appear thicker, this is a great styling option for you. A square face shape will be complemented by this look.

Recommended Products:

I love Kevin Murphy’s Shimmer Shine Spray! Spray it in your hands before you apply it to your hair.

Tips:

If you don’t have time to wash your hair, you can still make this look work! If you do the braids on dry hair and sleep in them, you will likely still get a good amount of wave when you take them out. Also, a three barrel curling iron will help you achieve a similar look if you’re in a hurry!

16. Middle Parted Magic

This middle parted, loosely waved look is totally stunning and is one of the most simple and easy styles to create. You can be done styling your hair in minutes!

  5. Place the hair in the back of your head so that it covers the bobby pin in the back of your head.

  3. Smooth the hair down, then pull back a three-inch section and secure it with a bobby pin at your crown.
  4. Begin a fishtail braid on the hair that’s been pinned back. Add in the rest of the hair that hasn’t been pinned back once your fishtail reaches the nape of your neck. Secure the end with a ponytail holder.
  5. Use your fingers and gently pull apart the sections of your fishtail braid so it appears a bit less neat.
  6. Spray everything with a light hold hairspray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This look is great for any texture of hair, but those with extra long hair with minimal layers will have an easier time creating this style. A round face shape will be suited well to this funky fishtail!

Recommended Products:

If your hair is fine and would slip right out of a style like this, apply a texture cream to your locks before you begin your fishtail. I love Brilliantine by Bumble and Bumble. A little goes a long way though, so use it sparingly!
