Spring has sprung – blooming flowers, warmer weather, and sunny days. But with the constant change in climate and never knowing when you wake up if it’ll be steaming hot or freezing cold – it’s hard to know what to do with your hair. Especially if you have Afro hair which can be just as unpredictable as the weather. But luckily, there’s a few hairstyles that never go out of style for spring, and are easy to maintain no matter if it’s hot, humid, raining, or snowing. Check out the hottest spring hairstyles, and how you can make them work for any occasion.
Beyonce’s beach waves

Beyonce rocks this look no matter where she is – no matter if her hair is short or long, or if she’s on the beach or at the Grammy’s. This spring hairstyle is easy to maintain and looks great whether you are hanging out in your sweat pants or putting on an evening gown. The easiest way to get this style is to put a mousse in your hair and wrap it up in a bun and let it set like that overnight. When you wake up in the morning, all you have to do is break apart the hair with your fingers and tousle it lightly, and you’ve got beautiful waves. If you want to pump up the volume, simply get a hair dryer and dry it upside down to get the waves some heat and volume. Adding a touch of hairspray can help those waves stay put all day.
Rihanna’s Sleek Style
For those who have relaxed hair, a perfect style icon is Rihanna. Her super straight updo was elegant yet highlighted her “rocker” look at the AMAs this year. For those of us who straighten our hair, this style is also easy to maintain as long as you arrange it around the crown of your head before you go to bed. Though this is a super simple updo, as we can see, it’s gorgeous when paired with a hot outfit.
Kerry Washington Bangs

The beloved character of Olivia Pope on the hit show Scandal is almost always dressed in white – the perfect spring color. So naturally, following the trends of the perfect hair of Kerry Washington is a great way to get inspiration for your own spring hairstyle. Getting side swept bangs is a hot new way to freshen up your hair, and attract attention with your new ‘do. As long as you maintain your bangs, the rest of your hair will be super easy. Even like Washington’s style pictured here, a wavy haired side ponytail looks perfect for any occasion. Work, going out, or staying in for the night – this is a classic style that pairs wonderfully with spring colors.
Don’t let the weather hold you back from having great hair – just keep it simple and you’ll be able to maintain the style and beauty that you want every single day, no matter where you’re going!
