Hairstyle ideas that are going to be *everywhere* for spring

We’re always on the look-out for elite hairstyle ideas so we don’t get stuck in a rut. And while we know it’s what’s on the inside that counts, there’s no denying that an exceptional hairstyle can change the temperature of your mood. In fact it can be the difference between feeling kind of crappy or low-key fabulous.

We may not wake up everyday with the hair God’s shining down upon us, but if we have a few reliable hairstyle ideas in our locker, to slip out at a moments notice, does it really matter? No. 

Forget trussing yourself up like a show pony. Often, the simplest styles are the most effective. A basic plait, low bun, beautiful braids or slick ponytail will do the trick.

If you want to take things up a notch though (and things may get slightly more fiddly) it’s worth working through. Identify the styles that fit well with your hair type and length and take a bit of time to get the technique nailed down,so that in the future, when you want to look extra swishy, you’re a dab hand.

A well-placed twist can make all the difference, embellished accessories are an instant way to look like you’ve made more effort than you actually have, and simple tricks and tucks may look intricate but take seconds to upgrade your style.

If you’re short on ideas, you’ve come to the right place. Glossy blowouts, spiky model buns, Barbie ponytails, baby braids and zig-zag partings are all set to headline 2022 as Y2K hair rules. We’ve rounded up the best examples to get you going. So, whether you have long length, short hair, an afro, a bob or a pixie cut, get ready for some serious inspiration overload…
