“You can never hold back spring” the great Tom Waits once sang and he couldn’t have been more right. It begins on the 21st of March when the astronomical Vernal equinox takes place and like it or not, everything suddenly changes. It is a time of rebirth, rejuvenation, growth, new beginnings and love.
To celebrate the days continuously getting longer (and better!), it is time to awaken from that long winter hibernation, shed those messy buns and furry hats and take the new season head on with some beautiful, light new hairstyles.
And when you need easy-to-do, no-fuss styles, there’s no one better to call on than Kayley Melissa. Check out these simple tutorials on five gorgeous hairstyles perfect for spring. Spoiler alert: prepare yourself for a whole lotta braids!
The Half Updo
Make three small braids, two on one side of your head and the third on the other side of your face. Pull back braids one and three and pull it into a half pony. Do what you will with the strands in the back – we love how she knots hers into a messy bun.
Dutch braid your hair, gathering hair as you would in a French braid. Braid the last few strands normally, then secure with a tie in a low pony position. Loosen up the braid. Take a small piece of hair and wrap it around the tie so it cannot be seen.
Leave out strands of hair on both sides of your face. Fishtail braid the rest of your hair back. Loosen the braid. Grab the pieces around your face, twist them, then randomly pin them back for a messy look.
Low Knotted Bun
Split your hair in half and tie the two pieces in a half knot. Pin to hold in place. Tie the ends of the hair and pin again. Loosen up the bun.
Take the top half of your hair and do a normal braid. Loosen the braid up and pin it away. Repeat on the bottom half of your hair. Make a bun with the bottom braid and pin it in place. Let the top half down and wrap it around the side. Pin in place.
